I've never heard of Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal until Hurricane Gustav. Now it appears people are already encouraging him for the presidency.

    I'd never support a religious extremist, especially one who is into "exorcism". We don't need Linda-Blair-pea-soup on the White House carpets.

    Jindal is as bad as Palin (although he's probably smarter...can't be any dumber). He's anti-woman and anti-choice. Pfffttt...no thanks. He's also anti-stem-cell research, which, as the mother of a Type 1 diabetic, I'm really disturbed by. There are cures just waiting to be found out there for devastating diseases, and the extremist Bush has already wasted 8 years that could have been spent in research because he sees embryonic cells as cute-little-babies. :roll: I want all future leaders to be of the type who won't stand in the way of medical progress.

    They must think that any woman or person with brown skin will do, it seems.

    yeah, i moved to Georgia from Louisiana and i know a bit about Mr. Jindal. nothing to get all hyped about. but, like CocoaCoily mentioned, maybe the brown skin helps.

    Seriously, this approach is so transparent and just doesn't work. And it's insulting.

    Yep. Apparently they think the dems did well just because of that.

    I agree. It seems McCain wasn't the only one who didn't get it. The leadership of the republican party is just as out of touch as he is.

    I don't know, but I don't see the republicans embracing him as "their" candiate.

    I say let the Republicans continue to think that any-woman-or-brown-skin-will-do. They'll be out of power, "in the wilderness", that much longer.

    *snort* Unless someone quotes them. Rouquinne is right about that, it kind of defeats the purpose a little. It's too bad the board can't be set up so that a (properly) quoted post by someone on your Ignore List doesn't show up in the new post for you, either.

    I don't think that's fair. I don't know much about him, but I do know he's been in politics for a while and he was one of the people MSNBC picked as a possible VP for McCain. He is a governor, and that's generally a stepping-stone towards looking at running for president.

    I also think this is pretty rude. So much for being allowed to have an opinion. You may not agree with it and I know some things have been said about her, but that doesn't mean it's ok to make that comment.

    And if I'm not mistaken, someone said something very similar about Rahm Emmanuel's appointment last week.

    I'm sure the guy is qualified to be governor or whatever and is a fine politician. It's the fact that he's a religious extremist, and he's anti-choice, anti-woman, anti-stemcell research...all the anti's...that turns us off. Frankly, most Americans seem to have had enough of the religous extremists, and we're saying you can't dress up an extremist in brown skin or with breasts and think America will buy it.

    I can understand that. It's the notion of Republicans (or any party, I guess) sitting down and picking someone solely because of the color of their skin that doesn't sit well with me.

    I don't think the Republican party understands that we are tired of the extremism from the far-right. I don't want the Christian Coalition social conservative agenda, and I think most mainstream Americans don't either.
    You can be Christian and you can be conservative in your own personal life...I know many that are and are also tired of the republican party.
    They can continue to look at Jindal, look at Palin, and any other...but they will have a hard time winning by doing that. McCain is less extreme, and I used to like him for that...but he picked Palin and then started catering to the RNC in his campaign...and well, he became more like the type of candidate I didn't want...so, I didn't vote for him...and it sounds like many moderates like me felt the same way.

    The republicans need to look outside themselves...look at what the people are saying,and then regroup. If they do this, they might have a chance in four or eight years.
    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    I seriously considered voting for McCain...until he picked Palin. Then I said "hmmm...lemme take a closer look at that Obama guy".

    The Reps are not going to back down on their pandering to the religous right. I think they're going to have to be spanked in a couple more elections before they get it.

    The Rep[ublican]s are not going to back down on their pandering to the religous right. I think they're going to have to be spanked in a couple more elections before they get it.

    That works for me :blob:

    As for the rest of your post I didn't excerpt, I can understand the appeal of McCain's moderate conservative views. He was never my candidate, but there were worse republican options. His judgment got very questionable towards the end with the Palin pick and the campaign strategy of negativity and mud. But anyway, that's all past tense now (over). No need to dwell when so much new is on the horizon :happy4: (and this is not directed at RCW but rather to people still hanging on to the campaign and not yet dealing with regime change post-election)

    The tone of this article is faddish and lacking in substance. It emphasizes mostly superficial traits of comparison. But if the GOP wants to bank on so-called Obama clones, then god bless them. Meanwhile, democrats (I hope) will be making sound policy decisions and governing in a manner that will increase the liklihood of an 8 year Obama presidency, and then another democrat riding on his successful coattails. Guess we will see in time what happens.

    Probably not. They'll most likely pick another RNC crony. The DNC used to do the same. Picking Howard Dean was a smart and interesting move. A lot of conservatives like Steele and he's pro-choice and not as gun nutty as some other possible picks.

    That was much nicer than half the stuff I would have liked to write.

    And, for the record, I do not think it's rude to let people know they are ridiculous/annoying. I actually think of it more as a PSA.

    Michael Steele of Maryland? He's pro-life to the bone. Hard core conservatives don't like him because he's pro-affirmative action. But he'll be a black face on the Republican party. We'll see.

    Ok beat up on her but all you people do is use the most gruesome language to describe anyone who doesn't agree with you it gets so F*CKING OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It takes all I have sometimes not to even look at certain things or just want to scream at you. You pretend to be so open and supportive but that's only to people who bow down to every little word you say.
