Cruising the Web

Bobby Jindal is excellent on Obama's energy record. He's also marvelous on education.

Another Obama supporter who got money from the Department of Energy is having financial problems and laying of workers. But according to Jay Carney, this is just the type of inherent risk that the federal government takes when investing in companies. Hmmm. Maybe the answer is that the government shouldn't be investing in private companies in the first place. Ya think?

The President describes an America that just doesn't exist.

How Paul Ryan has made premium support for Medicare reform a mainstream proposal.

The real reason Mitt is winning. And Michael Barone analyzes Romney's appeal in the suburbs. And you know that's where the general election will be fought. He's positioned himself in the middle of the Republican electorate. And this is supposed to be a bad thing? Not so fast.

Yet another reason to oppose the proposed Gehry design for the Eisenhower Memorial.

Max Fisher at The Atlantic
explains how North Korea is once again playing us for fools. Of course, it makes a nice election-year headline and that's all that matters to the Obama administration.

I'm curious as to what happened to Bobby Jindal. He seemed to be a leading contender for the repub nomination. Did that one post-SOTU misfire ruin his chances? Seems like he would have had a good shot this time around.

What happened to Jindal? Didn't you read the article? Turns out Jindal has been a successful and effective executive and continues to lead Louisiana out from under generations of Dem morass.

I suppose, as always with you, that question was really about White House aspirations. Seems to me that is up to the individual to advance. When and if Jindal decides to seek higher office, he'll make that call. I'd like to see that someday but I certainly don't want to see others push him forward before he is ready - as they did with Barack Obama.

Apparently in the Dem Party of machine politics, kingmakers are responsible for such decisions. Do you think that is true of Jindal's party? You must or otherwise you wouldn't be asking such an inept question, mark.
