Awesome: Bobby Jindal upsets the bipartisan apple cart at the White House Governor’s meeting this morning…

At a national gathering of governors this morning where everyone was trying to be cordial and bipartisan, even playing down their differences, Bobby Jindal called out Obama for waiving the white flag of surrender on the economy by refusing to approve the Keystone Pipeline and wanting to raise the minimum wage. He even referred to the economy as “Obama’s minimum wage economy”, asserting that we can do a lot better by actually growing the economy.

Some Democratic governors didn’t like that at all and one had to chime in blaming Jindal for taking them down a partisan road that they shouldn’t have gone. But Jindal came back to the mic and doubled down.

It was actually pretty awesome. Watch:

    Going along to get along got us in this MESS…Good job Jindal…

  • Libsrfunnyandohsoosad

    Governor Jindal is right on target, if you’re acting in a bipartisan manner. I/ We Want You GONE!

    • garyinaz66

      bipartisan=republican surrender

      • marketcomp

        Yes, republican surrender is how they get Republicans to shut-up! They tried to neutralize Gov. Jindal and he wasn’t hearing it.

        • tvlgds

          it is not possible to shut Jindal up or down! lol!

  • yo stika toe

    Boy, what a bunch of wusses! I don’t think that slug could have disagreed any faster with Jindal. Then, that smug prick at the end, mocking him about coming back again….I’ve just gotten to where I hate liberals. I had this liberal tell me this weekend that she was so far left that she was “more like communist”. What is wrong with people!?!

    • timsrighty

      That is exactly what I took from the vid. The only man who made sense was mocked.

      • tvlgds

        Saul Alinsky tactics.

        • timsrighty

          Yep I’ve seen it many times before but it never ceases to steam me.

          • tvlgds

            same here, and it steams me more when the right does it and turns cannibal on their own! The GOP establishment crucifies and ridicules people like Ted Cruz and others like him who are actually conservative.

            • Poptoy1949


    • Starfish52

      That “smug prick” at the end was none other than our empty package Governor Martin O’Malley of MD who desperately wants to be POTUS and doesn’t care how much destruction he leaves in his wake.

    • Jazz1232

      At least she’s honest on that point.

  • Here’s a partisan pointing fingers at another, calling him a partisan.

  • Bipartisanship is bullshyte. Not with the kind of leadership we have today. Either you love America, it’s constitution, and it’s resultant freedoms, or…. you don’t.

    BTW, that is a very smug and condescending way to refer to your fellow Governor. That Connecticut governor is such a jackass. Bravo, Jindal.

    • tvlgds

      The liberal definition of “bipartisanship” is that the right roll over and play dead.

    • Steve Angell

      What they say in private is the opposite of what they say in public at least for the Republicans.

      We have no say no vote we are but slaves to the State. Worse off than the founders under British rule.

  • welltempered2

    Bobby, Bobby, Bobby, what makes you think Obama wants to grow the economy? He wants to politicize the economy.

    • Jazz1232

      He and his comrades want complete control over the economy and us.

  • spydaweb

    More please.

  • Micky Baker

    The liberals have no clue on how the economy works. That’s why they keep screwing it up.

  • tvlgds

    If Jindal had been elected Gov in 2003 instead of Kathleen Blank-O, the response to Katrina would have been a whole lot different. SHE is the one who kept the feds and their aid out – not George Bush or anyone else. Jindal went on to be a US Congress critter from our district for 2 terms then ran for gov again in 2007 winning by a landslide in that election and again in 2011. He can’t have a 3rd consecutive term, but La. law does allow him to come back after being out for at least one term. He is brilliant. At age 24, under Gov. Foster, he took the La. health care system from in the red to in the black. I know my sister and a lot of people in the state are not happy with him over what he’s done to the state employees’ health care system, which also affects my parents since one of Dad’s retirements/health insurances is from the state of La. I still like him a lot!

    • Julie Berry Clark

      Good to hear from a LA resident. I’m in AR and think highly of him, I wish our governor was more like him.

      • tvlgds

        I’m actually not in LA at this time and haven’t been in years, but still have family ties there and might go back in the future. I do keep up with the goings on there. I’m in TX now, CA before that, but I’m still a die hard, bleed black and gold Saints fan! 🙂

            Got that right! And there are a LOT of Who Dats over here–I run into them all over the place, particularly in the grocery store.

            • JohnCraven

              Where else would you find a Who Dat?

              If we aint catching our food we’re in the grocery buying the fixin’s to go with the food we catch.

              See a lot of Texicans over here on this side of the border with our great neighbors to the west as well.

              Can’t thank them enough for letting us have Sean Payton!

              In all seriousness, the people of Texas are great people who rescued many of us after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita hit us a one-two punch in 2005. We owe them an incredible debt which we’ll never be able to repay completely.

      When Governor Blank-Out was in charge, everything was worse!
      I don’t know much about the state employees’ health care system but I suspect that Nero Obama’s lunatic ideas about healthcare have caused him to do things that he might not have done otherwise.

    Wonderful stuff. We can all hope for more like him. Those go-along-to-get-alongers behind him can just smirk their way out of office.

  • honestynow

    Since when is the truth partisan?

    • notsofastthere

      Since the Democrats made LYING AN ART FORM!

    • Sentinel

      You’re right. I guess it became partisan when Demoncraps stopped telling the truth.

  • sonofliberty

    “Obama’s economy is the minimum wage economy” catchie phrase..i like it.

  • Kiyoti

    ~~ Well….BO reduces the work week hours down to 30….so, he has to raise the minimum wage to make up for the $$ lost from his hour reduction.
    Works out to “almost” the same percentages….!!!

  • DebbyX

    Oh no, idiot Boy Dannel Pee Malloy speaking. Just mute your speakers everybody!

    • PVG

      Is that who interrupted jindal?

      • DebbyX

        It sure is! The gov. of CT, he is such an idiot.

  • Sentinel

    Demoncraps don’t like to have their shortcomings, ignorance or ‘good ‘ol boy’ ways televised nationally. They are dead wrong – AND THEY KNOW IT! But God forbid that someone should tell the truth out of Washington. The time to be cordial and deaf, dumb and blind to the truth is LONG gone! Commendable behavior Gov. Jindal. Well done.

    • yhxqqsn

      Ah. Now I get it. What they were upset about is that someone was pointing out their failures. Didn’t catch that at first.

    • MrProYo

      This is why governors have made some of the best Presidents. Go, Bobby, Go!

  • Freddie Sykes

    The minimum wage is just the tip of the iceberg of trying to run the economy by government regulations. Bureaucrats do not know best.

  • johnos2112

    Minimum wage increase is a cost of labor increase PERIOD! It will not help turn things around. Cutting taxes, govt waste and regulations will!

  • lawngren

    “Let’s be clear that there are differences here…”

    No fracking kidding, punk! You dems and rinos want America to perish from the earth in poverty, illness, and economic disaster. You have a death wish for America.

    “Let’s be clear” that you leftists are nothing but destroyers. That’s all there is to it. You have unmasked as America’s deadly enemies. You have given preferential treatment, aid, comfort, and many other benefits, not to mention protection, undeserved respect, and coddling, to other deadly enemies of America.

    We on the right are no more partisan than you. And there is nothing wrong with partisanship. The groveling rinos have sniveled and caved and licked your boots, and you think conservatives can be shamed into doing the same. Kiss my grass, punk!

    You leftist politicians love to sit around stroking each others’ egos while you destroy America and bill taxpayers for it. You’re obscene and worthless. If you want a socialist country, there are many to choose from. Go live in one of them. Or go to the devil’s ultimate destination, and I don’t care which.

  • yhxqqsn

    What is wrong with these people? They act like they aren’t supposed to disagree. They’re embarrassed that they disagree and someone admits it out loud? Give me a break.

    • sDee

      Liberty is not a steady state. It must be fought for tooth and nail.

      So, “bipartisanship” only advantages those deconstructing Liberty. Preserving the Republic is an eternal battle against evil. It cannot be fought under rules of political correctness, manners or in silence.

      The progressives know that they control the agenda primarily because the media is on their side. They know that anyone pointing out the truth or exposing the agenda will be smeared by the media as a trouble maker.

      • JohnCraven

        sDee, I think we need a few more trouble makers like Jindal.
        Ditto! to everything you said!

        Very well stated. Thank you

    • MrProYo

      Note the Liberal (Dem) governors’ lack of listen/learn skills. Totally unwilling to hear viewpoints not gibing with theirs. Liberal congresscritters share that denseness.

    • dadork

      Absolutely, our founding fathers had very heated debates when they were discussing how to proceed pre- revolution and during the Declaration of Indedpendence and the Constitution. Ideals being discussed and argued have always been the hallmarks of a growing nation. The idea that we are all just supposed to shut up and get along is the most crippling determent to growth.

  • sDee

    It is war. Good vs Evil. Evil wins when good stands in silence.

    Kudos to Jindal for stopping the pretense

    • Jazz1232

      I seriously doubt Jindal would consider these evil bastards anything but very well-meaning patriots.

      • JohnCraven

        Well, now, Jindal did ask for 30 seconds to come back at the governor with the head lice and said once again Obamanomics and ObamaCare was giving us a “minimum wage economy and Nero Obama was waving the white flag of surrender on the economy so I don’t think he was saying they were well-meaning patriots just then.

  • MontanaAnnie

    Good for Jindal. Just speak the truth and let the chips fall. You’ll be accused of being mean spirited, anyway, so why not go out telling the truth?
    (now ask why I don’t have many friends who want to discuss politics with me !)

    • timsrighty

      Why don’t you have many friends who want discuss politics with you?

      • MontanaAnnie

        Too ‘opinionated’. Notice people just want to live their lives, and not want to be bothered about what is going on? That requires a bit of responsibility. DWTS, or American Idol is easier. Thanks, Tim. You are a very obedient chap!

        • timsrighty


    • GaltLine

      Jindal’s interview on Fox last night (Monday) was very good also. He sounded whiny a few years ago when he contested Obama’s war on oil drilling. Like you said, yesterday he wielded truth like the sword it is. Jindal has found his voice.

  • misterlogic0013

    Go Jindal … rest total assssss. boy girlie men .. go along to get a long .. hit the road Jackssssssss assssssss..

  • Dick_Parker

    Man, Would I like to see that arrogant prick take on Levin with his lame ass big government Bullshit. This idiot doesn’t really believe the American people left to their own devices could pull this country out of its current financial debacle the socialists have saddled us with. The last 200 hundred years puts the lie to idiots viewpoint. It was not the government that drove the whole world into an unprecedented prosperous new age. It was individuals seeking to improve the opportunity to improve their own lives and being allowed free reign to do so.. But the elitists have taken over and the citizens are no longer free to make their own decisions and the shining city on the hill is no longer, and this clown is just another political hack looking to claim his own score off the toil of everybody else who still believes in the American Dream……………Spit!

    • danaellen

      Levin or Cruz would crush the living day lights out of all of them in a debate.

  • $3273457

    Malloy is just another smug north-eastern liberal jerkwad! Oh excuse me, was everyone being polite and “bipartisan” at your little party until someone dared to actually speak his mind out loud? Boo friggin’ hoo!

    Libs define “bipartisan” as being in total agreement with them. Once you disagree with them about anything, then they brand you a “partisan extremist.”

    Jindal absolutely did the right thing here. I think I’ll email his office and let him know that.

    • JohnCraven

      Maybe we can get the Robertson’s from Duck Dynasty to lead us that safari. They’ve already helped get a conservative candidate elected in a special election so I’m sure they can help us bag some more RINOs and Vichy French Republicans.

    • cmsk

      Danny Malloy is not a RINO… He proudly aligns with the DemocRats.

  • BearNJ

    That was a lot better statement by Jindal than his state of the Union response years ago.

    • JohnCraven

      Ditto! BearNJ! Ditto!

      But I’ve always strongly suspected that when he gave that speech a few years ago, he was being “strongly advised” by inside the beltway advisors to the Big Government Republicans who saw it as an opportunity to set Jindal up to look not his best.

      During the BP oil spill mess, Jindal, on the fly, was landing many punches on Nero Obama left and right just as he did in this press conference.

      Lately, I’ve noticed that Jindal doesn’t speak at a million miles a second as he used to. Maybe he’s still speaking at half a million miles a second but he has slowed his speaking down a bit and in doing so I think he speaks better, usually.

      He really is very quick on his feet.

      Our economy in Louisiana is doing well because of the things he has done here while governor as a genuinely conservative politician. Lately I’ve wondered if some of the Big Whigs in the GOP have gotten to him but after listening to him here, I think maybe not. He still puts up a good fight with the loons on the left.

      If Jindal wanted to go independent, third party, stay Republican or leave politics altogether, I think he’ll do great no matter what as he always has.

      I just hope he doesn’t ever let the Big Whigs of the GOP snooker him into changing and becoming more moderate.

    He really got to that governor with the head lice!

    If we had more Republicans speaking frankly and forcefully and courageously as did Governor Bobby Jindal, I don’t think there would be many conservatives who feel unwelcome in the Republican Party as so many of us do now.

    Calling Obamanomics a “minimum wage economy” and saying Nero Obama was raising the white flag of surrender on the economy was quite frankly brilliant and adding to it that we can do better than that and without all the unncessary regulations which kill good jobs.

    Way to go Bobby!!!!!!

      Typical Dem blasting someone else for being partisan while he is being partisan himself. Smear and lie. Malloy has it down. Loved Jindal jumping back in to smack Malloy’s smear attempt down. If only the current GOP leadership had Jindal’s guts. I remember Jindal not being cowed by Obama either over oil drilling in Lousiana. Would like to see the video around the meeting between the 2 again.

    Politics and politicians are the bane of any society! Have been since time immemorial! I recall that all politics were touted as being local and these politicians seem to be more concerned about self propagation and personal enrichment with but few exceptions and the damndest of them are Democrats and RINOs in the current crop! The aspect of term limits is ascending once more and the rebuttal is that the body of experience would be lost! Well, look at that body and consider what some of those who have been around the longest have done! Look at Detroit, the rust belt and god awful California and what the lack of leadership has done to this nation. Worst financial shape ever and we are more divided than at any time since the civil war era and for good reason, just look at what we have in the White House. All incumbents should be fired, period! We need young, fresh blood willing to follow the rule of law and uphold the constitution with a solid leader at the helm! Time for doing business as usual and the old guard to fade away as soon and as fast as possible else we are in some seriously deep fecal matter!

    • gates of vienna

      The Rust Belt, Detroit, and the ruin of California are all examples of Democrat-unionist(Marxist) 19th century economics.

      Jindal refused to get a law degree. Was an Oxford scholar who came back to hone his public policy skills. Long before he was in elective office he was cleaning up and making more efficient the Louisiana medicare system.

      Bobby Jindal understands well the pitfalls and potholes in bureaucracy. What he can’t change he tries to work around. Which is why he didn’t endear himself to Obama during the oil spill when BHO chose to go to a fundraiser in CA rather than attend the oil rig workers’ memorial. When Bam wouldn’t okay the use of the oil clean-up ships the Netherlands sent, Jindal did. And he also helped build the protective berms. As in he got out there with a shovel…while Obama busied himself with a golf club.

      Bi-partisan go-along-to-get-along means not ever drawing attention to things like our Obama minimum-wage society.

      What a difference between due diligence and dilatory foot-dragging. Let’s see what history has to say about these two.

  • tinker_thinker

    yes, the differences are foot dragging and pretend “study” over no brainer pipeline for a leftist, hypersensitive and most likely anti-capitalst, anti-globalization president. He has shown zero interest or courage in attempting to grow this economy, and the Dem party is so stupid they actually buy and defend his transparently anti-economic growth agenda, and tell us they believe him. After 5+ yrs of economic anemia and unlimited gov’t, zero cooperation with the House (Clinton balanced a budget with GOP, much lauded economic growth- where are these Democrats in seeing the glaring difference between a centrist Dem and a marxist?) is forging agreement when HIS POLICIES HAVE CLEARLY FAILED!!
    The only thing offensive is Malley not showing any frustration with the president, any agreement with common sense economic growth initiatives in an economic emergency, and defending a failed presidency (on every front) showing no signs of future economic successes.

  • Ron Blower

    “Deregulation”; ALL regulations MUST be “Cost-Effective”; “No minimum wages” =’s lower AND lower wages; Grow the economy =’s MORE taxation on the 99% and MORE profiteering into the wealthiest Americans coffers.

    Remember Reagan’s “Deregulations”? 10K’s have died due to the lack of Regulations and 100B’s have stayed in the pockets of the wealthiest. THAT’S “Growing the Economy” the GOP way. Jindal admitted as much in the above video, didn’t he? Of course he did….

    Check out the 99%ers in Louisiana, Jindals State: 44th median income & 40th per capita. ALL the Southern “Red States” are in the bottom in both categories along with Idaho, Utah, Oklahomo, et al.

    When ANY & ALL Politicians talk about “Growing the Economy”, they’re talking about more to the wealthy. Even Obama only mentions that phrase when he gets a “non-partisan” Bill through which, for instance, EXTENDED the Bush Tax Cuts. I’ve never heard that phrase in connection with an increased Minimum Wage. Now, an increased Minimum Wages WILL “Grow the Economy”, it’ll just do it from the bottom up so we get to use it as it ascends to the top.
