Paging GOP: Why didn't this guy run?

Every time I hear Lousiana Gov. Bobby Jindal speak publicly, I ask myself why this man isn't top of the list for presidential contenders.

Jindal knows policy and his conservatism is so grounded he doesn't even have to think about what he says. He just comes out with it, in a torrent of facts and info that make you dizzy. If you're covering an event, you have to tape him because it's almost impossible to keep up with him even at a brief event if you're just taking notes.

I recall Jindal doing some sort of response a couple years ago, and he came off as Not-Jindal. I figured the powers that be had over-cautioned and over-coached him before his TV address. Whatever the case, Jindal is a man best left unfettered.

Can you imagine Jindal in a debate with President Barack Obama? Aside from former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, Jindal is one of the few who could dance rings around our teleprompter CIC.

Why didn't Jindal run?

Anti-foreign law bill will protect all S.C. citizens

SC Senate bill 444 does not violate rights of Muslims, though Jihadists would have us believe otherwise.

The SC Senate is currently debating legislation that would ban the enforcement of foreign and religious laws - including Islamic sharia law – but opponents claim the bill would violate the constitutional rights of Muslims. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Sen. Vitter points out Sen. Reid's gold double standard on taxes

Democrats don’t like Big Oil or Little Oil either. There’s a definite anti-US oil policy pushed by the president and Sen. Harry Reid (Nev.) whose Democrats also control the U.S. Senate.

The federal government, in the words of one offshore towing company owner, shut down the whole Gulf Oil industry in a single day. President Barack Obama then praised Brazil’s oil exploration in the Gulf, after Brazil got a US taxpayer funded loan to drill.

Reid, however, has a double standard and it’s gold. Literally.

Vitter wants answers on Brazil drilling loan; Paul wanted answers too

Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) said President Barack Obama's support for Petrobras oil drilling is "ridiculous."Sen. David Vitter (R-La.) wants answers from the US taxpayer supported Export-Import bank about a $2 billion loan to Brazil for offshore drilling. Vitter’s home state is suffering under a moratorium imposed by President Barack Obama. Vitter said Louisianians “are frustrated” and he wants to know “why permitting domestically is nearly stalled…”

Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) had questions about ExIM—nine years ago when he asked Congress to reject the reauthorization of ExIm for “economic, constitutional and moral reasons.”

Lousiana couple’s plight over interracial marriage hits home

Commentary by Kay B. Day

A Louisiana couple refused a marriage license by the Justice of the Peace in Tangipahoa Parish’s 8th Ward hit home for me. In August we celebrated the marriage of our daughter, who is white, to a young man who is brown. Within our own circle, we didn’t face prejudice; on the contrary, family and friends seemed genuinely happy for them. By the way, we are Southern.
