Bobby Jindal is governing
like it’s 2016

Politico, by Emily Schultheis

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/17/2013 2:12:11 PM

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is laying the groundwork for a likely presidential run — and using his state as a testing ground for policies that play well with national conservatives. He’s passed a sweeping school voucher plan, rejected the Medicaid expansion in Obamacare and proposed scrapping the state income tax. But political observers who’ve watched Jindal up close for years say it’s become increasingly fuzzy where his governing ends and his presidential ambitions begin — whether the 41-year-old policy wonk’s plans are aimed at Louisiana’s problems or future GOP voters in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Comments:
Not to worry, Emily, Bobby Jindal knows what he is doing.

So, if Bobby Jindal is doing great things for the people of Louisianna - it´s just because he is running for President?

In that case, I wish every Governor was running for Pres.

Heaven forbid a conservative Governor put forth a conservative agenda. There must be an ulterior motive.

Just as under our legal system everyone is presumed innocent until proven guilty, couldn´t we have a journalistic system where everyone is presumed innocent of running for president until he makes his first speech in Iowa or New Hampshire?

The problem for Bobby Jindal in terms of a possible foray into presidential politics is that, like every other Republican in a prominent position in America today, with the possible exception of Dr. Ben Carson, he can´t make a compelling speech.

Banality is evil, because good people don´t bore their listeners to death. Until Bobby Jindal learns that and takes an intensive Berlitz course or the equivalent in speaking INTERESTING English, he should stay as far away as possible from Iowa and New Hampshire.

I guess a constitutional scholar like Mark Levin must have failed 3rd grade civics. Strange how this issue of eligibility is only raised by anonymous "experts" on conservative forums. If they were truly not eligible, would so many in politics be so totally invested in the possibility of their candidacy?

Much as I regret to, I must agree with #3. Jindal, Rubio, Zippy - none are eligible by the current reading of the Constitution. They are NOT Natural Born Citizens of the US, which requires that BOTH your parents must be citizens at the time of your birth. Either that or you must have been a citizen at the time of the promulgation of the Constitution. Wich rules out everyone except perhaps Larry King.

My goodness, #16, there are plots all around you, aren´t there? Conspiracies abound. There is no consensus on what defines a natural born citizen. There are many informed opinions. The American Thinker piece linked above details one of them. I´m going with the ones who tell us it´s ludicrous to say Jindal, Rubio or Cruz cannot legally run for president. But, for those who spend a lot of time searching out reasons to destroy our own,maybe there is fun to be had.

"Some debate exists as to the meaning of this phrase. Consensus exists that anyone born on U.S. soil is a "natural born Citizen." One may also be a "natural born Citizen" if, despite a birth on foreign soil, U.S. citizenship immediately passes from the person´s parents." From Cornell University Law School.

Another Politicus hit piece. Emily: You´ve got nothing. If anything you´ve made a great case for the governor. At worst, you´ve proved your inadequacy as a commentarian(?)

Really: The entire premise for the article is here: "But many in the state see Jindal’s decisions — particularly his tax plan but also his decision to reject the Medicaid expansion, which would provide health coverage for hundreds of thousands of poor residents — as being driven by 2016.

How so, Ms. Emily? You must be an upstairs commentarian. Look into it. You will see that Jindal is correct. "The poor residents will be poorer." Typical blather. Progressive policies lead to poor residents becoming poorer.

Ah yes, ´Natural Born´. Born in country - any country - to TWO citizen parents, thereby requiring no legal jujitsu to acquire one´s citizenship status. Not ´Naturalized´ - born elsewhere, immigrating legally, studying our laws and constitution, and then taking the oath of citizenship. Not ´Native Born´ - born here, but not to citizen parents or only 1 citizen parent, but ´Natural Born´ - so ´natural´ it requires no definition. So ´uderstood´ that Madison, Jefferson, Mason, Franklin, Jay (specifically) et al, found no reason to codify its definition in the Constitution.

Obama, Rubio, and Jindal are not eligible.

#7 - Two wrongs don´t make a right, they just make the first one harder to correct.

#3/13 - We are going to disagree on this forever. Do you not find the nom de plume of the AT article ´interesting´? It can be argued that Arthur was also ineligible as his dad was Canadian I do believe who had not become an American citizen prior to ol´ Chet´s birth -- just as Rubio´s and Jindal´s parents were NOT citizens at the time of their births. They are ´Native Born´ not ´Natural Born´. They can hold any political office except Pres/Vice-Pres.

I learned in my 8th grade civics class that there are 3 classifications of citizenship, as stated above, and only one of those is eligible to be president. I also am of the firm belief that we have had an illegal government since 1/20/2009.

... and for those that didn´t bother with the link at #10 ...

Stated differently, a President must be a second generation American citizen by both U.S. citizen parents [emphasis mine]. A Senator or Representative can be a first generation American citizen by naturalization or birth. It is the extra generation carried by a President which assures the American people that he/she is born with attachment and allegiance only to the United States.

Thank you staff for the 2nd post.

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers.

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Eventually, all individuals who hold a five percent or greater stake in a Medicare supplier or provider that is categorized as "high risk" will be subject to the requirement. The provision is part of the Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP Program Integrity Provisions (Title E) of the Affordable Care Act, and gives the HHS secretary broad discretion in applying the background check requirements depending on the potential for abuse, fraud, and/or waste.

The Obama administration is just fraud all the way down. U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration is concerned that a crucial United Nations report on climate science may be too harsh in assessing the cost of fighting global warming. Such a finding may lower the incentive for the world to reduce fossil fuel pollution and feed the arguments of those skeptical about whether it’s worth spending money to curtail rising temperatures. Global temperatures haven’t risen in 15 years, but never mind that. Pay no attention to the Sun’s role in our climate. The UN report is set for release next week. Plenty of time to

AUSTIN — A Texas judge was expected to seat a grand jury Monday in an investigation into whether Gov. Rick Perry abused his power by vetoing funding for public corruption prosecutors last year. Special State District Judge Bert Richardson was to oversee the impaneling in Austin. The governor’s office didn’t return messages seeking comment, but The Austin-American Statesman and KVUE-TV reported that Perry took the unusual step of hiring a criminal defense attorney to represent him. The attorney, David Botsford, did not return calls from The Associated Press seeking comment. In June, the governor threatened to veto funding approved by the Texas Legislature

Daniel Athens, a 23-year-old El Paso resident, pleaded guilty earlier this year to a criminal mischief charge in connection with the April 2012 incident at the Texas shrine. While Athens could have faced a maximum of two years in custody, a plea deal saved him up to six months in custody. Athens was also ordered to pay $4000 in restitution by District Judge Ray Olivarri. Since Athens is not eligible for parole, he will have to serve the entirety of his 18-month sentence. As detailed

But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
