Hey, he got rich. That's all that matters. Everyone else can something something bootstraps ayn rand and BAM! Instant wealth!

So now the republicans are the death panels.

A Jindal administration official complained that the Obama administration "wasn't being flexible to work with the states to make it work for us."

How were they not being flexible, out of curiosity?  Was it something more than merely existing?

I thought everybody hated this guy even amongst GOP stalwarts. So now the rest of the state can hate him too?

Vote for me, I made it impossible to obtain affordable health insurance.

Good for him! It's wonderful to see a politician follow-through with his or her promises and truly represent the people of his or her state.
 
2013-08-22 01:41:35 PM  
I'm sorry, but if you're still a Republican in 2013 America there's something wrong with you. And no, I'm not saying Democrats (of Libertarians or Greens or Independents) are perfect either, but continued support of the GOP is just insanity.
 
2013-08-22 01:41:55 PM  
This guys is so incompetent he takes it to a whole new level.
 
2013-08-22 01:42:38 PM  
I am sure most of the people in LA are already insured so health care costs are not a drag on the state budget.

Now if Bachmann would only follow through on her promise to leave the state of MN.  After all, she'd be doing the state a favor, and improving it by her absence.

Why prevent people from voting when you can just LET THEM DIE?

You know the constant downward spiral of the GOP absolutely fascinates me. I highly doubt that this is Jindal's decision alone, but I believe he's caught in a catch 22. He can't run for POTUS without certain backers of/in the GOP who have their own agendas, and he can't run with the outcome of implementing those agendas because of lack of voter support. He is not alone in this situation but the GOP keeps replaying the same losing strategy.

Have these GOP pols not been watching the news at all?  I mean I understand litmus tests or whatever, but deep red congressmen are gettting heckled and embarrassed at their own town halls in their own districts because of anti-ObamaCare rhetoric.

That said he is governor of the state that 29% blames Obama for the government response to Katrina.  We're not exactly talking about intelligent people here.

Selling his soul to the GOP gods named Karl and Roger, I see.

He's just looking out for those kids he has mining diamonds.  If those dirty Dems had their way, those kids would be out of work.

Fine.  More money for California.  Works for me.  Has any other red state cancelled federal high-speed train money lately?  I would like some more of that please.

When the Republicans run a non-white male for President, they won't be the Republican Party anymore.

Hey.... wait a minute, bub.

As a proud graduate of Louisiana's public school system, with a BS from a directional Louisiana university, and an MBA from a Missisippi public university, I want to take issue with yo....


Who the hell am I kidding? With that resume, I should be applauded for typing this myself and spelling almost all of the words properly.

I for one eagerly look forward to the Republican Party having a civil war with itself over such an issue.

After this fiasco, of literally throwing tax payer cash into the ocean, he should never hold office again.

BP spill. He said we should build sand barges to stop the oil. All experts said it was a stupid idea and wouldn't work, they would be washed away. He went ahead and did it anyway... They washed away with heavy equipment still on them.

To be fair, he's a Republican, so he's just proving to the people that government doesn't work, which is what they elected him to do.

It is at best insanity. I would argue it's actually an immoral act. And quite possibly supporting a terrorist organisation.
