Well since you have yet to post anything worth while in this thread including why Jindal did not have a good response I take you word like a pile of crap!

Wait, wasn't it the Dems who nominated both Al Gore and then John Kerry the last two elections? I'd worry less about what the GOP's doing and more on how the next 4 years pan out for the Dems.

you can nearly always tell how worried a ******* is by how many exclamation marks said ******* uses.

23 exclamation marks tells us the level of worry is nearing the pants-pooping level

They sad he was vague yet Jindal clearly said that the GOP wanted to:

lower income taxes (more than the 13 a week we get from the Obama administration)

Lower taxes on business (yet Obama wants to raise them to get rid of Bush and his deficit)

I'm not worried. I would love it. Everybody the republicans turn to ends up terrible or ineffective. Mike Steele yacking about hip-hop republicans and Palin and now Jingals auditioning on air live for SNL. I can't wait to see who they trot out next. I thoroughly enjoy these up and coming republicomedians.

Tank; don't forget the dems were out in the wilderness for a while - 2002, 2004 were not good election years for them.

I remember in 2002 Carville putting that bag over his head in despair - I think he did it again in 2004.

In politics, the pendulum can swing fairly quickly in either direction. Right now, it's swinging your way (disaster).

I imagine some of us feel the same way dems/libs felt in 2000 and 2004.

That's not vague? Did Jingals explain how he was going to do that?

Did Jingals turn down all the government aid his state got for Katrina? C'mon, he was horrible. In one speech he rendered himself irrelevant nationally. When the citizens of Louisiana realize this guy wants to turn down funds to aid their state, he might be irrelavant locally.

Jindal was way off base to use volcano monitoring as an example of government waste. I live in a volcano prone state, and I've got a suggestion for Jindal, let's not monitor hurricanes. Since he doesn't want to take stimulus money, I assume Louisiana has recovered fully from the effects of Hurricane Katrina and they don't need any further help from the feds. On healthcare, he stated we should leave health care decisions to doctors and patients and not the federal government. Is he not aware that the private sector aka insurance companies make the decisions. I'd love to see this guy debate Obama in 2012. He's got a long way to go.
Regarding the volcano monitoring thing, I live in California and I thought EXACTLY the same thing you did: Let's quit monitoring hurricanes too then.

I liked Jindal a lot before he gave this speech. Now I think he is really out of touch with the rest of the country.

I thought, at some point, he would say that we didn't need a military -- that the Boy Scouts could fight our wars without depending on government money!

He was really AWFUL!!!!!
