Stop Apologizing for America!

Posted by Diogenes Sarcastica.

Our Most Excellent Louisiana Governor, 
Bobby Jindal, takes Obama to Task.
Governor Jindal, who has had a very public feud with the White House over the administration's handling of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill and offshore oil ban, is of the firm belief  that the current president is responsible for leading the country down a wrong and very dangerous path.

From Fox News:
Criticizing both the Bush and Obama administrations for failing to execute adequate domestic security policies, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal went on a tear Sunday, criticizing Washington for playing defense, relying on luck and apologizing for protecting the nation from terrorists. "This is a fundamental clash of cultures. This isn't, well, let's go and figure out a way to apologize for Americans. This isn't how we offended them because we're supporting Israel."
The federal government has to face the fact the War on Terror is about enemies who hate the U.S. way of life, not about social justice, he said.
 In his new book "Leadership and Crisis," Jindal writes that the United States' "current therapeutic approach to national security is dangerous. I'm just not interested in empathizing with the grievances of our sworn enemies. Let's figure out where they're vulnerable and destroy them."
The Governor has also been very vocal about the recent TSA security controversy and the Homeland Security Secretary.
Jindal said body searches of 6- and 12-year-old girls traveling to visit their grandparents is illogical. Instead, it's time to dip into methods that rely on information without political correctness.  "I don't think it's profiling, I think it's using information we know. You look at things like, for example, you look at travel patterns, you look at how they purchased their ticket. You look at the information, the intel we've got.

Bobby Jindal, son of Indian immigrants, is a vibrant, intelligent and energetic politician who's trials as a young Governor are well known, as is his ongoing feud with the White House. He has conducted himself well as Governor, but is he Presidential material?  Maybe not yet, but definitely someone who should be looked at carefully as a possible V.P. We could do a lot worse.

  1. I, too, am a fan of Bobby Jindal. He's intelligent and articulate without the use of a teleprompter. He is a passionate and unapologetic proponent of political, fiscal and social conservatism and economic capitalism.

    However, after his faltering rebuttal presentation for the Republicans after the last State of the Union Speech, it's obvious he needs further seasoning before he steps up his political game. This was his first experience speaking to a national audience and I think he got a case of the butterflies contributing to his less than stellar performance.

    Jindal is very young and thus has plenty of time to develop and broaden his state outlook and experience to a national and international perspective. I think Jindal is one of the future superstars of the Republican party.
