    I actually like Gov. Bobby Jindal.

    As a moderate,
    and not afraid of calling the Republican the party of Stupid,
    He actually has a good shot at winning the general election.

    I just know how divisive and extreme the GOP has become,
    so he'll never make it past the GOP Primaries.

    He also is not a WASP.
    Republicans nominate WASPs.

    There's nothing new in what he said. That's been the story since day -1. The economy was "fine" even when it wasn't right until Obama took office and then it was the apocalypse with zombies cast by democrats. The part that concerns me about their mental health is they actually order the millions of AR-15's and ammunition as if their zombie daydream were true. I'm sure some arms manufacturers would love to see a civil war the republicans are desensitizing us to.

    When the republicans get their way, we'll be making the same amount or less that Chinese workers with NO minimum wage. After Civil War 2 I guess..

    Perot, the independent candidate running against Clinton in 1992 predicted the sucking sound going on in the economy from free trade agreements 2 decades ago. I like to think of it as the air being let out of a balloon. Same thing. It was predictable all along.

    I hope Parker and Jindal and their colleagues will keep warning America. We need to hear this regularly and often. Ms. Clinton will need their continued help and support to ensure her election. Keep up the good work.

    "Was his response really all that terrible?"

    I dont think his response was any big deal at all. Nothing controversial at all.

    I am just saying that it probably appeared to have come out of the blue.
    I actually appreciate people like Jindal who look to discuss issues rather than personal attacks.

    Here's my assumptions and mind reading attempts...

    They probably talked about the economy in these meetings, and he said what was on his mind.


    He said what he said. Was it terrible? I don't think so.

    The media is pumping people who are running for President for comments like this all the time. Was his response really all that terrible?

    Jindal, Cruz or Christie....

    Christie embrolled in Bridge-Gate.
    Cruz, the radical rightie reading Green Eggs & Ham, Government Shut-down, and born in Canada.
    and Jindal is obviously not one of the GOP "us".

    Should be a cake-walk for Hillary.

    I will take a guess at what happened. Admittedly, pure conjecture.

    All the governors had a great, cordial meeting without flamethrowing and partisan attacks. Heck, maybe they even accomplished something positive for our country.

    But, the minute a TV camera and a microphone became present, everything changed. Jindal felt required to go on attack mode to solidify his credentials with the base, who want nothing to do with cooperation.

    I appears that it caught Gov. Malloy by complete surprise.
