Bad Bobby

So, by now you have likely heard that Bobby Jindal "made up" or more bluntly "lied" about his nice little story pertaining to a telephone call he overheard and adapted to his speech. Unfortunately, this is not the type of hype and buildup that the Republican party needs rights now. Already people are saying he made the same mistakes that Clinton did years ago in his famous long speech at the DNC, but the fact is apparent here and that fact is Bobby lied.

Bobby Jindal, take a note from other people who have lied both in the Democratic camp and the Republican camp. It is wrong. Nixon will forever be remembered for "I am not a crook" and leaving office in disgrace. People don't think about him opening up China, or any of the other things he did for the country. On the other side of the table, a lot of people associate Clinton with a cigar and a lie about sex (sorry it's true) and they fail to look at anything he may have accomplished for the good of the nation. Telling a lie is not the way to project yourself to people who already feel like they can't trust the government. At the very least, Gov. Jindal, you should have came out and told the truth, but instead you sent your press people out to say there was a "mistake". Republicans must be "Stand Up" people or we won't rebuild this party. Gov. Jindal and others must take responsibility for their actions or how can we expect them to take responsibility for our nation?

Jindal's Volcano: Well Said

Gov. Bobby Jindal didn’t have to wait long for the opposition to jump on words he used to respond to President Obama’s speechCNN Report. Jindal was picked not only because he is a rising star within our party, but also because he has two traits that Republicans need.

First, it is he is young. Let’s face the facts; most people associate the Republican Party with a bunch of middle age guys in suits. Now, here is Jindal on the other side of the middle age factor and a seemingly “down to earth” sort of guy. Wham, a new face for the party!

Second, he speaks well. Jindal is well versed and uses language to his benefit. With a little more practice, he could be the new Reagan our party has been seeking. After all, who could look past such remarks as his reference to being a “pre-existing condition” when his family arrived with him still in the womb? He has the wit, and he has the words. We need this on the front lines for the party.

As for the attacks, sorry folks, Jindal is right. The statement about throwing money into volcano monitoring is right. Let’s not forget that Jindal comes from a state where big government failed to act during what should have been their finest hour. Maybe Jindal could have seen a little better if the money had been marked for hurricane monitoring. Take a moment to count the number of volcano eruptions and compare them to the number of hurricanes and you might find a better place for the money to go.

Finally, just ask the people of Louisiana who was there when recent storms hit. They are quick to tell you that Jindal cancelled his speech at the Republican National Hooray, packed his bags, and came home. The result… Louisiana had their governor on the home front, working for the people who elected him and he conducted one of the best evacuations in the state’s history. He did it without big government, but even more importantly he did it for the people who put their trust and faith in him. Jindal may very well be the man on his way to a future position as President of the United States. If he takes the same attitude toward that job that he has the governorship, then America will be in safe hands.

A Homeless Stage?

Cnn reported the story about a homeless lady asking Obama for help and his administration offering to help the lady find housing Cnn Story. Several blogs on the net are asking if this was a staged stunt and it may well be. The bottom line is the public will likely never know for certain.

On another note, one of the interesting things about the story is that you can find a little fact near the end concerning Chene Thompson. Mrs. Thompson offered to let the woman live rent-free in a home she owns. While the Obama administration offered to hook the lady up with housing authorities that could still leave her on a waiting list, Mrs. Thompson acted by offering the lady a home immediately. If someone reads the story, they will quickly find out that Mrs. Chene Thompson is a Republican and in fact the wife of a Republican Represenative (Rep. Nicholas Thompson). So whether the lady was placed at the meeting as a staged act or not, the Obama administration offered to use big government to help. Mrs. Thompson offered help on her own without the government. Mrs. Thompson showed she is true to her convictions as a Republican who believes in less government and more people helping people. Simple. Big Government = more waiting for the lady. Small Government = people working together. This is the grass roots of our party and an example we must continue to show, share and shine across America.

Miller County Republican Meeting

The Miller County Republican Committee met on Monday 2-9-2009. Several committees were assigned by the Chairman with a good turnout of volunteers. As reported some months ago, the committee continues to grow. I expect that this may be a trend as the new administration appears to be unsure of future tax burdens. The only thing for certain is that you can not spend money without making money and this is something the Republican Party is certain about. We just hope the Obama administration learns this minor fact also.
