Disc0Mat1979 saidDems always compare everything to racism when it comes to republicans. one thing that always made me laugh was how white democrats can get away with saying racist comments towards minority GOP members, while simultaneously accusing conservatives of being racists. he had a very inspiring message, unlike the dems who say only government can help us, like we're little babies. instead of dems listening to Jindal, they're jumping on the "token...." conspiracy.
here's a great link to another conservative american's POV who also happens to be a minority. it's pretty sad that i have be hypocritical for a moment and use race to prove a point. at least it will educate those that still have stereotypical views towards republicans.
If by "inspiring message", you mean factually challenged then you are absolutely correct.
He managed to bring up the fictional levitating trainhttp://www.newsweek.com/id/186409
Made incorrect claims about 140 million going to volcanic monitoring. http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2009-02-25/jindals-eruption-of-hot-gas
And I think the best part of the entire speech this:
Bobby JindalToday in Washington, some are promising that government will rescue us from the economic storms raging all around us. Those of us who lived through Hurricane Katrina, we have our doubts.
So his example of government spending not working was when his party held a majority in both houses, and the presidency and couldn't defend people from standing water. Seriously? It had nothing to do with incompetence? And if that is such a great example of the government gone wrong why did he, as a member of the house, vote for it then?
And of course there is also this instant classic
Bobby JindalYou elected Republicans to champion limited government, fiscal discipline, and personal responsibility. Instead, Republicans went along with earmarks and big government spending in Washington.
Republicans went along with it? They held both houses and the presidency and they went along with it? No, they were doing it. They wrote the budget and took us to record deficit spending. They didn't go along, they led the way.
The long and the short is that Jindal is ether clueless or dishonest and either way I would hardly call that inspiring.
