So How About That Bobby Jindal Fella? [Y-not]

Bobby Jindal has been on a tear lately.

A couple of days ago, he ripped Fearless Reader a new one over Ebola:

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), who has said he's considering making a run for president in 2016, criticized the government's response to the Ebola epidemic at an appearance in New York City on Thursday.

"Time and time again, the CDC and the administration in general have told us things that turned out not to be true," Jindal said. "They first said the president said it was unlikely the virus was going to get here. It did get here, it turns out it did get here. Then he said it was unlikely it was going to spread and it did spread."

And ICYMI, there's this gem:

And he's campaigning for the Republican challenger to Governor Malloy in Connecticut:

Following a TV debate in New London on Thursday, Malloy - down by six percentage points as recently as two weeks ago - told the Observer that he had no misgivings about a visit from the president - to the contrary, in fact. "There's appreciation in Connecticut for his support of the middle class, support of education and housing, and acknowledgement that we implemented Obamacare better than any other state. All of those things I've done with help from Washington - and I'm happy to share that message with the president."

Still, the president's travel docket includes visits to just five gubernatorial races - contests considered less sensitive to national political mood-swings - and only a single appearance, in Michigan, at a Senate or congressional race.

"Whether the president of the United States comes here or not is not going to make a lot of difference," considers Foley. "People are going to vote on Malloy's record."

A defeat for Malloy next month in this typically blue northeastern state would set a frightening precedent for Democrats in 2016. But shifting demographics suggest they stand a chance of winning in the so-called "new coalition" of typically Republican states in the south-east. Conversely, if Republicans can't win in blue states now, with low voter turnout typical of midterm elections, when will they?

No surprise, then, that the Clintons, Bill and Hillary, are beating a path to Connecticut. So too are members of the Republican leadership, including governors Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Chris Christie of New Jersey.

Let's commit ourselves to giving Obama and the Democrats a very very bad no good November 5th.


Open thread until the ONT or something better comes along.
