Nice to read a women's interpretation of the speech. I noticed some of the same things (e.g., Pelosi's green suit), but I did not focus on it. Thought Jindal has a long way to go before he is a viable candidate. I guess if you liked him, I would say that I have an alternative view. I used to collect 78 records. Sometimes there would be a scratch in one and it would get stuck and play the same word. I think the Republicans are stuck. All they know is to say CUT TAXES. There is too much money. Give it back. There is not enough money. Give what money there is back. Bobby (not Jindal) says there is a problem with iLlegal immigrants. We both agree that illegals should be kept out of the USA. How do the Republicans address the illigal immigrant issue? CUT TAXES. I am sorry . Republicans today do not have a clue.
Verdict still out on Jindal. He has a big job to do if he is going to bring Louisiana back from being akin to a 3rd world country.
Don't think government is the answer to much - but think it has to be the answer on illegal immigrants. They have to be stopped at our borders, and they have to be sent home when we find them - whether working, splitting up families, or not. Of course, they are paying into Social Security, so we need to be prepared for a big loss there if we send them home. Will residents take their jobs? If they want to eat, they will. Why do we have them in our jails? Put them on a bus - many buses, whatever it takes. Not so simple, I realize, but it has to be done! This is not a partisan issue. Louisiana is very strict on illegals - one reason it is taking so long to rebuild from hurricanes. He may be right - don't extend unemployment benefits, put the people to work.
