5 Things To Remember About Bobby Jindal

Share
Bobby Jindal Caricature

Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal became the latest entrant in the bloated GOP primary race. While it can be hard to distinguish between the different players in this congested contest, Jindal stands out from the pack for the following five reasons.

1. He participated in an exorcism.

This really happened, according to an article written by Jindal himself in 1994 and published in the New Oxford Review. In the article, titled “Beating A Demon: Physical Dimensions of Spiritual Warfare,” Jindal recounts an incident involving a college acquaintance he calls Susan, who began behaving strangely, so he did what any rational person would do — assumed she was being possessed by “some strange evil force.” Since the preacher “denied our request for assistance,” Jindal wrote, he and his friends commenced “chanting, ‘Satan, I command you to leave this woman,'” and eventually vanquished the beast.

2. He has contempt for “science.”

When it comes to denying science on climate change Jindal has the bonafides he needs to make a dent in the Republican race, and then some. After new FEMA rules were enacted, requiring any state seeking federal money for disaster preparation to summarize the future hazards facing them, Jindal blew his top, because, you see, FEMA explicitly asked states to mention “changes in weather patterns and climate” that pose a threat. Speaking on Fox News in March, Jindal decried this as an example of “inmates running the asylum,” “coercion,” and an attempt to force climate skeptics to “submit to [Washington’s] liberal ideology.”

It doesn’t stop at climate change. Jindal, a conservative Catholic and by his own admission not an evolutionary biologist, passed a law that inserted creationist teachings into the science curricula of Louisiana schools. Taking the same weaselly false-equivalence tack as other “intelligent design” merchants, Jindal said: “I want my kids to be taught about evolution; I want my kids to be taught about other theories.”

3. He’s got the Duck Dynasty demographic in the tank.

Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame endorsed Jindal’s candidacy, calling him a “good man,” a “Godly man,” and “one of the smartest persons I’ve ever known.”

When the show’s star Phil Robertson made controversial remarks about gay couples (he compared homosexuality to bestiality and said HIV was God’s punishment), Jindal defended him.

4. He is opposed to marriage equality.

It’s basically the price of admission to the GOP race to come down hard against equal rights for LGBT citizens. Even so, Jindal has gone above and beyond, making “religious liberty” the focus of his first campaign ad in Iowa.

The ad features Jindal giving a graduation speech at Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University, using the familiar, thinly veiled rhetoric that lauds “religious liberty” as a shield that protects anyone wishing to discriminate against same-sex couples from the passage of new laws or the rulings of the country’s highest courts.

“America did not create religious liberty. Religious liberty created the United States of America,” Jindal said (a line he recycled in his announcement speech Wednesday night).

5. He doesn’t have a chance.

So with other, better established candidates espousing the same views on social issues, the same strident science denialism, and the same meritless bombast on the evil of Obamacare, what does Jindal have going for him? Nothing really.

According to an analysis in FiveThirtyEight, Jindal missed his shot when he didn’t enter the race in 2012. Now his polling numbers in his home state are in the gutter, and he’s just another clown in the car.

      The State-of-the-union address is where the president gives a message to his people. For those ignoramuses who thinks it is a debate and choose to rebut it, shows a complete lack of class and respect.

      Look, guys, all these morons are being encouraged to run for a simple reason–to make the criminal but electable front-runner look sane by comparison.

      It’s the logical conclusion of the arc beginning with Dan Quayle, the distracting vice-president to the first George, followed by George the Second covering for his venal, sinister veep.

      Nowadays, the quest for the semblance of sanity is covered in the electoral cycle by putting the circus on display in the primaries.

      Rick Scott was up this morning gloating about the 900,000 new jobs in Florida (still over 1/2 million short of what he claimed in his first race.) He neglects to mention the tax giveaways necessary to secure them from other states (about $100,000 per job per year), and that several of the companies are now moving out-of-state now that the tax giveaways are ceasing (Draper Labs, etc.) Like all governors, he was required to have a balanced budget, so to accomplish the jobs “miracle” (i.e. tax money giveaways) he blew giant holes in state university and local school budgets. After all, no need for a university degree when the new jobs bought from other states include the badge “do you want fries with that?”

      Jindal and Walker have the same kinds of problems, and will likely also gloss over the dismal downsides of their policies. But the upsides for them are VEEP postings or Senate runs. After all, name recognition is far more important than sane policies for the down-race candidates.

    In a country like ours, anybody can run for elected office, including President. The thing to remember is the difference between running and being elected. Jindal has a nice personal story, and he rose to the top the old fashioned way: he worked for what he got. Having said that, his political decisions have proven to be detrimental to a large segment of the population of Louisiana, and if implemented at a national level, the privatization of Social Security, MEDICARE, MEDICAID, dismantling the ACA, and replacing public education with private or charter schools would cause more misery to the American people, especially senior citizens and students, that threats such as ISIS would pretty much become irrelevant.
    I think it is also important to consider the internal ideological struggles within the GOP, manifested in the interminable list of Republican candidates. From social conservatives, to economic conservatives, to austerity advocates, to libertarians, to white supremacists, the GOP is a conglomeration of ideological zealots that don’t trust each other, and often don’t like each other. With this is mind, the more Republican candidates the better, as it highlights both the dichotomies in their message, the fact that they all believe the other is either a RINO or a zealot, and a lack of unity that is bound to impact them in 2016 and beyond. What surprises me is the fact that they have not split into different political parties that represent the fluidity of their dogma.

The bigger problem is people like you that really don’t care what she does legal or illegal. You would vote for a pig as long as it was a Democrat. I’m a reformed Democrat. I look at EVERY major city in the country. They are all run by the left and they are all a complete mess. The racist left refuses to offer a good education to minorities. Billions of dollars spent paying off the teachers unions and screwing the inner city children.

            Yep, and C Rice “said” she didn’t have emails… and C Powell deleted ALL his emails the day he left.
            So Hillary hands OVER ALL emails to the state dept. (as now required, but NOT when she was in office) and she is pilloried by TP idiots like you. The state dept. is going though those emails as we speak AND have already released ALL emails having to do with Benghazi. The GOP found nothing, in the multiple hearings they have had on this topic.

Also, most of the states, especially the ones with major problems, have Republicans as Governors (something else you need to fact check before posting) As for the billions of dollars taken from our inner city children…..you can thank the GOP and their Koch-owned governors for taking money from the schools to give to their rich cronies. Also, easy to check if you wanted to take the time to do so, but I think you’re afraid that you’ll find out you’ve been lied to by the GOP and the TP morons.

As for Obama ruining the country just look at the unemployment #’s, stock market #’s, the value of the dollar versus currencies like the Euro, Pound, yen, etc. The housing market has come back and the country has the ACA.

          Hey Einstein the deficit has decreased under Obama it’s the debt that has increased, typical troll misspeak! As for 90 million people being unemployed where did you create that #, I believe you pulled that number out of your butt.
          You are just another angry male who rather wallow in your anger than do anything about it. Its obvious from the number right wing trolls that the more nasty you are the less you have to say that is provable. You sound like a poor man’s Trump.

          Joe: First of all, the ACA is extremely affordable compared to what people were paying previously….some couldn’t even get insured because of pre-existing conditions, etc. Secondly, we wouldn’t be having problems with ISIS if it weren’t for the illegal war that Bush got us involved in (but, of course, you don’t research this or you’d know better). Thirdly, the unemployment percentage is the lowest its been in many years (again, do your research or fact check your info before you continue to make yourself look ridiculous). Lastly, President Obama has deported MORE illegal aliens than any other president (again, fact check). The border is more secure than ever and we’ve had fewer illegals coming through than ever the past few years. Don’t know where you are getting your info because everything I said is pretty easy to locate if you’d bother to check before you rant about things you apparently know nothing about! These are just the usual BS “myths” that you’re being sold by the GOP.

You say the unemployment is the lowest in years, but don’t mention the labor participation rate is the lowest since the 70’s. The 800 billion ACA is really 2.8 trillion (CBO report 2010) Obama has deported more aliens only because he has let more in and helped create and maintain sanctuary cities. Everything you have said come from the left wing spin machine.

Not once has he agreed to an independent investigation on these scandals. Instead he told you one of his sheep that these are false Scandels. He promised transparency and delivered the opposite. Said I could keep my doctor but I couldn’t. He said my health care costs would go down an average of 2500 a year. They went up. Almost Doubled the deficit in 6 years. What part of that isn’t a disaster? The biggest problem with all of that is he know his sheep like you will let him get away with it because you hate the right!

            Compromise on what? Nothing, in fact when he invited the GOP to talk about health care he completely ignored what they thought should be in the bill and the dems passed the bill with none of the suggestions by the GOP. Tort reform and letting people buy insurance over state lines would have made it a much more affordable plan. Then when the GOP voted unanimously against it you people blame them! Since then our one sided president has done everything he can to run the country like a dictator. Weather you want to be truthful or not, this country runs much much better when both side get some of what they want. Regardless if the extremists on this sight want to be blind or not this country is in big trouble. There is absolutely no arguing that the Iran deal is a disaster for this country and Isreal. With 24 days to wait to inspect, the Iranians WILL CHEAT! The rediculious excuse that the only alternative is war could only be believed by sheep or the brain dead. Doubling the national debt, the Irs targeting, the first death of an Ambassador since Jimmy Carter’s presidency, 1,500 guns to the drug cartel, leaving Iraq to soon and creating isis, the worse racial tension in years, cops being attacked because of race, and so on and so on. ARE ANY OF THOSE THINGS DOING WHAT’S RIGHT? ?? ANY MORON can see that the disaster that our president has created is going to lead to disaster.

            First of all, the ACA was the “invention” of the Republlcan party to begin with since they developed it themselves several years prior. Secondly, it’s almost a mirror of the one that Romney put into affect in his state when he was governor. As for leaving Iraq too early, look to ex-president Bush since (1) he’s the one that put forth the bill to draw down our military…President Obama was only doing what was already proposed by YOUR GOP ex-president. Additionally, Maliki refused to allow our soldiers to stay in Iraq and would not support them. We can’t force a nation to keep our soldiers in place if the refuse to allow them to stay! ISIS was created out of the illegal war started by, again, your ex-president Bush! If you would do your research, you’d know that! I don’t dislike the GOP….hell, I’ve even voted Republican a couple times in the past, but they are so far gone, it’s downright pitiful!

The deficit has NOT gone up; the debt HAS gone up. As for the debt, EVERY president has raised the debt….have you ever heard of inflation? It costs the US more each year to keep this big country functioning. The debt is a GOOD thing….if we had it totally paid off, and as most knowledgeable economists have said, the US would be in serious economic turmoil.

            No I’m talking about the deficit! The last year of Bush the deficit was about 500 billion. The first 3 years of Obama it was 1.4 trillion then 1.3 trillion then about 1.2 trillion. You really need to stop repeating the dems talking points and study. Your a nut job of you think 18 trillion dollar debt is a good thing. There isn’t an economist anywhere that says that. If the debt was a good thing they wouldn’ bother with a budget. Do you know how how much the government spends a year to service the debt? We would be in trouble without the debt? Are you on drugs? So far nothing you’ve said in the last few days is accurate. Please do yourself a favor and read. Read a lot.

      Has nothing to do with it……we don’t like him because we don’t think he’s a viable candidate to run this country!

    There we go again. We know Jindal is smart and articulate; but he is ugly. Americans hate ugly presidents. In fact I am surprised GOP this time around has ugly candidates. Do people really think Perry believes African-Americans are regular Americans? No. The guy has “N” word on his house. Rick Perry, like many Repubs and TPs, thinks
    Blacks should be shipped back to Ebola countries. Dr. Ben Carson is waking up now
    and has found TPs and extreme Repubs hate him because he is Black. This is the
    same guy who criticized President Obama on Obamacare. He got praises from TPs
    and FoxNews such as O’rielly, Hannity, Tantaros and Eric Bolling who hate Blacks.
    Dr. Carson should realize the right wing media such as FoxNews; Huffing Post
    and others are not happy he is ranking high among GOP candidates. You would not
    vote for Chris-he is too fat will need a military copter to transport him back and forth; Scott Walker- loves Sharia law; he squints, walks funny and is school-dropout.
    Santorum wants to be an American little pope; we do not want another pope. Huckabee-he has speech impediment-just look at his mouth when talking and wants to be a TV preacher instead of being president. Ted Cruz is Canadian born-not eligible for the WH job and he is too fat; Marco Rubio-a son of Cuban immigrant is prejudiced against Latinos. Latinos won’t vote for him. Sarah Palin is too violent- her family was
    recently thrown out of a tavern for causing a brawl. Why are we then wasting time with these GOP candidates?
    They are all losers.

    No one will vote for Bobby Jindal anyway.

    Jindal (and Carson) are fooling themselves. The GOP will gladly tolerate them and trot them out so they can have a, “Look, we’ve got people of color too,” moment, but after 8 years of Obama, there’s no way they’re not going to vote for a white, old guy (sorry, Rubio – Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz has a chance just because he’s successfully anglicized himself). Most Jindal can hope for is a veep slot, but that’s probably not going to happen either.

    Poor Bobby. Apparently he doesn’t realize that he was the GOP minority of the day, but his day has expired!

        Why do you bring up racism here….nothing was said about Jindal being Indian…..it has NOTHING to do with his incompetence and nothing to do with this article.

    One of the smartest people Willie Robertson has ever known? Somehow I doubt that’s a really high bar.

      I would not like to be one of Robertson’s friends. The insult would be too much.

    It amazes me to see so many so-called “governors” running for the top job in the land….most of them from states that are not doing very well because of their mismanagement! Can’t the GOP find anyone with some intelligence to run, or is that something they are severely lacking so they have to scrap the bottom of the barrel? I guess intelligent Republicans won’t run because they don’t want to have their every word dictated to them by the Koch Bros. or any other group! I don’ blame them, but they are not helping the GOP party at all!
