  4. After reading our side's briefs for prop 8 and Doma. In my opinion the Supreme Court will be force feeding marriage equality down this guys throat.

  5. He totally pivoted from that question. Looks like the GOP knows they are losing the battle.

  6. Bobby, baby, Bobby, bubbi, you won't *win the debate* if you dodge a question with an answer to something that wasn't asked.

  7. If the polls keep showing increase support to marriage equality, he will change his opinion by the time he will try to run for president, that's for sure

  8. After seeing his response to Obama speech to the Joint Congress, he is an incredibly stupid person...akin to George Bush. There seems to be a direct correlation to the placement on the conservative scale and actual rationality....lizard brains indeed.

  9. Lizard is as lizard does.

  10. Seriously though, I don't know who is worst; these GOP clowns or the MSM that continues to just regurgitate talking points and not challenge people using facts. That doesn't appear to be changing soon... look what happened to Soledad O'Brien at CNN... she was the best thing they had going... Bobby for President? Seriously...??? Someone who blocks FREE ACA funds for his state, cuts funds for education and signed a law that allows teaching of "intelligent design"? Yeah, I'm not surprised he also opposes marriage equality. He is just a tool...

  11. This b'hole is the GOP's likely candidate? Against Hillary? LOL

  12. Only 38% of Louisianians approve of his actions as Governor. He spends more time out of state running for office than in state. He is a bundle of ambition. He legally changed his name from Piyush to Bobby, converted from Hindu to Catholic, was a Biology major at Brown and a Rhodes Scholar but forced "Intelligent Design" into La.'s classroom curriculum, is a policy wonk on health care but dismantled La.'s state-owned hospital system, is an intellectual who has decimated La.'s education system from K through LSU, you get the picture.

    On marriage, he and his compliant Indian-American wife (who never appears in public) have a Covenant Marriage, an Old Testament version passed into law in 1997 with his enthusiastic support. From
    "Slightly more than 1 percent of the almost 391,000 couples married in Louisiana between 1997 and 2007 chose covenant marriages that require premarital counseling and make divorces harder to obtain, according to state data.
    "The Department of Health and Hospitals, the state agency that keeps track of marriage licenses, said that in the 11-year period 390,893 marriage licenses were issued but only 4,112 -- 1.05 percent -- were for covenant marriages."

    On anything religious, Bobby Jindal makes Justice Scalia look like a moderate. He is the most extreme type of Roman Catholic. Hope that this anchor baby never gets to run for President or Vice-President.

    Oh, and the mediocre state senator who wrote the Covenant Marriage Act? That would be Tony Perkins, now head of Family Research Council.

  13. This fool will never be President of the United States of America.

  14. Jindal is a creationist and theocrat. It's absurd that some paint has some kind of moderate who can turn the Repubs around.

  15. Does this man have a brain?

  16. Catholic converts like Bobby J are always extremist in their views, and entrenched & doctrinaire in their social viewpoints. They make bad leadership decisions and can't be depended on to properly represent a large, heterogeneous, complex society. He's not only a card-carrying member of the "stupid" party, he defies his relatively young age (41) and is backward-thinking, and will prove to be quite a drain on republican-party resources.

  17. he didn't convert because he wanted to he converted because the bigots in his party would never vote for a hindu. it was a conversion of opportunity

  18. Agree Walter, and like MOST republicans, he wears his religion as an invisibility cloak to blend in.

  19. Bobby Jindal has about as much chance of being President of the US as Ellen Degeneres has of being the next pope.

  20. I am a little rusty on the biblical definition of slavery... Would his dark skin mean he should be a slave?

    Posted by: Michael | Feb 24, 2013 4:35:43 PM

  21. walter: And the bigots in his party will never vote for a converted hindu either.

    This is not like being afroamerican or latino who are minorities with big numbers. Maybe in the democrat party being of hindu origin wouldn't be a problem, but in the republican party running for president being hindu is pure utopia.
    I'm not even sure Marco Rubio will go too long if he runs for being the republican candidate

    Posted by: jjose712 | Feb 24, 2013 4:57:08 PM

  22. Majority of the GOP continues to drag their knuckles ... they should be embarrassed of themselves.

    Posted by: Reality | Feb 24, 2013 5:26:05 PM

  23. Rubio has a better chance at getting the GOP nomination.

  24. So someone actually married this creep?

  25. If a minority marches with the KKK does it make him White? The hypocrisy never ends with this party does it?
