Bobby Jindal's Burden: Will Voters Want Another 'Skinny Kid With A Funny Name'?

Bobby Jindal is delivering a lecture, and I'm nodding off. We're at the Heritage Foundation where he is set to release his new energy plan, and the Louisiana governor keeps throwing around acronyms: "LNG" , "OCS" and "RFS" WTF? I wonder if this is reserved for the think-tank crowd, or if he goes through life using abbreviations that 99 percent of his audience doesn't understand.

Bobby Jindal says he'll decide on a presidential run after midterms

Louisiana's Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal says he's thinking and praying about running for president in 2016, and will make his decision after the November elections. His name barely registered a blip in a new CNN/ORC poll of GOP presidential possibles in New Hampshire, but that won't be a factor in his decision, he says.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Tuesday that President Barack Obama's administration has become "science deniers," failing to do enough to harness the nation's energy potential.

Wyden invites Boehner to talk tax reform - over wine

Have a drink on me: Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden is inviting House Speaker John Boehner to "sit down together and figure out how to get tax reform done." The Oregon Democrat is even throwing in a special incentive for the famously wine-loving Boehner: "Let me know a time that works for you, and I'll bring along some of Oregon's best pinot noir," Wyden writes in Politico.

So 200 Reporters Walk Into a Field in Iowa ...

My colleague John Dickerson was in Iowa yesterday for the Second Coming of Hillary Clinton. From my armchair , it seemed like the arrival of Bill and Hillary Clinton at Sen. Tom Harkin's last "steak fry" - a populist picnic for thousands of people, at which the steak is actually grilled - would confirm that Hillary wanted to run in 2016 and that the media was already in full-on Beatlemania mode about it.

Dupuy: The dumb debate: big versus small

One of the dumbest points of contention in modern politics is the Big Government vs. Small Government one. It's a fake debate, only meaningful to the privileged: investors, business executives and their cronies.

Governor Deal and the Recovery School District

Joash mentioned this in a post last week when Bobby Jindal came to down to stump for the governor, but I think this needs a little bit more discussion. I was kind of surprised that it hadn't come up in any of the comments either.

GOP Optimism Growing as Election Approaches

Visiting Florida for the state Republican Party's annual fundraising dinner, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal gave a warning that would have seemed laughable just a few months ago. "This election is too important for the people of Florida, it is too important for our country, to take this for granted," Jindal told supporters of Gov. Rick Scott's re-election who gathered outside the Grand Floridian Resort before the 2014 Victory Dinner to greet Scott, Jindal and others who arrived by bus.

Common Core criticism not limited to the right

While the push to derail Common Core is often attributed to Republicans and conservatives, Louisiana teacher unions that are mostly aligned with Democrats are nearly as vocal in blasting the overhaul. Both the Louisiana Federation of Teachers and the Louisiana Association of Educators backed legislation earlier this year that would have scrapped the standards in favor of others.
