Jindal and Thompson wish for failure.

Bobby Jindal and Fred Thompson both have come out today saying that they wish Obama would fail.

This country has lost sight of the idea that you are only as strong as your weakest citizen.  People are losing their jobs, their homes, and their retirement funds.  Yet, the other side continues to play partisan, turning a blind eye to what really matters.  These games look petty to the American people that are being affected by this.  The top five percent have had a good ride these past few years and with money and power comes the greed for more money and power.  We have let the poorest fall down while we have been the ones carrying the carrot stick.  The difference in ideology is that democrats want to help them up, just get them back on their feet again and let them follow whatever carrot stick they would like.  Republicans think that they are doing just fine lying on the ground, if they fell it was their fault and we have no business helping them up.

Race and the Republican Party

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's Republican response to the president last week smacked of condescension on more than one level, not just from him but from a Republican party that is schizophrenic on the subject of race.

The GOP thinks they can spotlight a few minority faces, such as Jindal and new party chairman Michael Steele, and we'll all forget the harm their policies and politics have done to minorities and women.

Jindal?? Please, please, please...

John McCain is set to meet with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal Wednesday, a move that is certain to increase speculation the Arizona senator is seriously considering the 37-year-old Republican for his running mate.

News of the meeting, first reported by the Washington Post, comes amid reports the McCain campaign has mulled the possibility of naming the vice presidential candidate later this week in an effort to steal the media spotlight from Barack Obama's trip overseas. Sources close to the Republican presidential candidate have indicated that scenario is one of several possibilities that have been recently discussed.

Please let this be true. I honestly thought the McCain camp wasn't this stupid, but maybe they are. Bobby Jindal is absolutely insane. He swears he performed an exorcism in college (and stands by that). He is a rabid opponent of evolution and abortion. He's considered in a lot of ways to be a bit of an empty suit, and I think there have been grumblings about his leadership, too, having jumped around in office so often.

If McCain picks Jindal, Obama picks Clinton. BOOM. Game over. The independents who aren't fond of her REALLY won't like Bobby Jindal, and they'll be pissed at McCain for picking someone so crazy. And everyone else will get to watch her beat the everloving crap out of him in the debates.

McCain's VP Weekend

Weekend at McCain's

It was just a social event, insisted Senator McCain's spokesman referring to the gathering of presumed vice presidential hopefuls at McCain's secluded ranch in Sedona,Arizona. Attending were Mitt Romney, Florida Governor Charlie Crist, Lousiana Governor Bobby Jindal, and Meg Whitman former CEO of eBay,

According to a confidential source, the weekend proceded smoothly and amicably until the Memorial Day barbecue. As the barbecue was being served, Governor Crist laughed and smirked when Mr. Romney asked for arugula to accompany his meat, saying that this sounded very "elitist". Then Bobby Jindal took offense when Cindy McCain asked him to provide technical help for a problem with their home computer.

Finally, Mrs. McCain herself became extremely annoyed as Meg Whitman kept pointing out to Senator McCain how much he could get for several artifacts and household items by selling them on eBay. As a result, the picnic lunch ended early and the guests were dispatched to the airport.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee regretted that he was unable to attend this weekend social event.

Louisiana Governor Jindal Supports Radical Anti-Stem Cell Politics over Patient Health

Louisiana Governor Jindal Supports Radical Anti-Stem Cell Politics over Patient Health

In the special session of the Louisiana Legislature that ended on March 14, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal took an important stand for the future of biotechnology in the state. He called for, and achieved, an investment of $50 million for Pennington Biomedical Research Center, going so far as to open the legislative session on Pennington's campus alongside the facility's president.

A bill that passed out of committee on April 9 completely nullifies that commitment to scientific advancement. HB 370 by Rep. Cameron Henry, WHICH IS SUPPORTED BY GOVERNOR BOBBY JINDAL AND HIS ADMINISTRATION, prohibits the use of public funds - state or federal - for stem cell research. The bill defines human cloning as "somatic cell nuclear transfer," which is not the case. There are important scientific differences between human reproductive cloning and SCNT, also known as therapeutic cloning.

Let's ignore for a minute the constitutionality of a state government prohibiting the federal government's giving money to a private institution and focus on the issue. SCNT is NOT human cloning. The scientists that conduct the potentially lifesaving research that is being discussed do not want to clone humans. SCNT utilizes unfertilized eggs and does not result in life, unlike actual human reproductive cloning. SCNT doesn't create life, it saves lives.

One legislator went so far as to compare research being done by today's scientists to Nazi experiments on Jews in World War II, saying any good that may come from such research is not worth the lives lost. This legislator even told a father testifying about his daughter's disease that it was the father's "opinion" that the life of his daughter was more important than a cell in a Petri dish.

http://www.bayoubuzz.com/News/Louisiana/ Government/Stem_Cell_Research_Under_Embr yonic_Louisiana_Debate__6202.asp

Governor Jindal, his administration, and the majority of the members of the House Committee on Health and Welfare have chosen to ignore the facts, ignore the potential for research and ignore the cries for help from patients in need - all in order to cater to one loud, radical special interest.

It is outrageous to think that the Republican Party is still considering Louisiana's Governor Jindal as a potential vice president after hypocritical, dangerous actions such as this. If they want him, fine. Our children with diabetes, our parents with degenerative diseases, and all our afflicted patients will be glad to see him go.
