Gov. Bobby Jindal Wants To Welcome You To His Neighborhood

In an attempt to take some of the shine off of President Barack Obama's speech before a joint session of Congress last night, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal gave the official Republican response to Democrat's attempts to save the economy.

After President Obama's awesome speech, I watched with some degree of trepidation as Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal started to speak. My fears were quickly quelled - Jindal was terrible. Upon hearing Jidal speak for a few minutes, my first impression was that he sounded like a condescending Mr. Rogers describing his neighborhood to his childish listeners.

Jindal merely derided President Obama's policies, and really offered no solutions to America's present woes - with the exception of his perceived need for further tax cuts, presumably for big business. He made this cryptic claim only moment's after President Obama had just announced a massive tax cut for 95 percent of working Americans. He also asked the members of his party to return to their principles of limited government and fiscal discipline.

After eight years of George Bush, it is fairly comical to hear Jindal attack Obama's economic policies as 'irresponsible'. Also, Jindal made a huge mistake when brought up Katrina victims to flaunt his own personanal narrative - people still remember which politial party is responsible for that fiasco. Even FOX News gave Jindal a thumbs down.

In reaction to Obama's speech, House Minority Leader John Boehner was quoted as saying, "I thought the tone was good. But for very few exceptions, I could have given the same speech."

Oh, yes... The rich dulcet tones of Rep. John Boehner....

Agree, he really did sound like Mr. Rogers! I was trying to think who his tone reminded me of!

Boehner is pathetic.

The Mr. Rogers comparison is perfect. I started counting "Americans can do anything" and lost track at ten billion. And the Katrina reference was just jaw-dropping.

Didn't he say something along the lines of "if we just believe, America can do anything!"

If we clap really loud, Tinkerbell will come back to life too!

That's right, you socialist Dems with your stifling bureaucracy that kept George Bush from personally delivering 18 18-wheelers worth of bottled water, potato chips and rubber duckies.

Mr. Rogers is perfect.

Watching Jindal I felt like I was on Charles Manson's parole board.

"Yes, Charlie, you may be a model prisoner. But you still brutally murdered all of those people and you're still crazy as hell."

Exactly right, Doctor. I shouted at the teevee, "He sounds like fracking Mr. Rogers talking to third graders!"

Until last night I never dreamed that there might be a political party that does not think volcanoes should be monitored.

But Mr. Rogers was so kind and patient and loving!

Maybe he's Mr. Rogers' evil twin.

The American public has spoken, and they don't buy Jindal's/the GOP's tired old rhetoric anymore. They keep preaching to their same group of staunch supporters.

Rachel Maddow said it best last night--his speech left her "slack jawed and babbling like a Benedrilled infant."

So the Republican Party is grooming another star - hope he works out better than Sarah Palin!

It's gonna be very hard to oppose Obama's policies on a free market basis, since the cooperate big players are the ones lining up for the hand outs!

He sounded like a Sunday school teacher trying desperately to come across as sincere.

Jindal was delightfully terrible!

Mauigirl: He did sound a lot like a condescending Mr. Rogers talking to little kids. Boehner is a poo poo head!

CDP: "Americans can do anything!" Hee hee! It's magic, boys and girls!

Darius Whiteplume: Yay, Tinkerbell! She's a Democrat, you know.

Doc: The Dept. of Diebold, no doubt. ;o)

Randal Graves: Rubber duckies! That certainly would have helped. And bubble bath, too!

Dean Wormer: Ha! "Sorry, Charlie."

Michael Hart: Never shout at the teevee! It's rude, and you might hurt the teevee's feelings. ;o)

ThoughtCriminal: And the volcano monitoring reference was a dig at Alaskans, too! Ha!

Übermilf: My apologies! I said that Jindal sounded like a "condescending" Mr. Rogers. I did not mean to disparage the real Mr. Rogers, who was one cool dude who had great taste in sweaters.

Utah Savage: I saw that! Rachel Maddow is awesome, as Germaine Gregarious keeps telling me. :o)

Jang-chub Ozer: I am just waiting for Jindal's big "Lipstick on a Pig" moment. :o)

Comrade Kevin: With a special emphasis on the word "desperately." :o)

BAC: Indubitably! Without a doubt! :o)

All you need to know about Boehner is that with one look at him you can tell he carries a personal smell medley of tanning moisturizer, scotch or gin, and halitosis.
