I had a feeling as well that this was Jindals first step in seeking the presidency. However I have

always

thought Jindal was more about raw ambition than any political party, hence his Romney like switch and bait tactics. But unlike Romney who I think was truly a big Corporation advocate and Libertarian economic supporter, Jindal i think really is apolitical and could embrace anything.

Jindal i think really is apolitical and could embrace anything.

...except science. Jindal, who supports creationism in public schools and opposes monitoring volcanoes, is the one to save the GOP from itself? To be blunt, I don't consider that a sign of hope. Its more akin to a snide remark intended to goad someone into committing suicide.

I really don't think Jindal cares one way or the other about creationism being taught, unlike some wingnuts. I think he supported it because he knows his audience and it worked on a local level.
I do not think Jindal is going to save anything. The party is gone. I was just making a comment about how I have always felt about Jindal and his motivations.

Do you really think Romney is any different? The only real difference was that Mittens had a far, far weaker grasp of what the public wanted to hear. That, and he proved to be an incompetent kind of opportunist.

They're both cynical, flip-flopping sellouts. That Jindal has more cunning is not what I consider an improvement. Especially when considering that the statement in question was made after the election. Captain Hindsight impresses nobody.

re: #4 EiMitch

Oh my god. I in no way ever said Jindal was an improvement. I was actually trying to make the point that if anything he is a little worse or at best just as bad because he is just about raw ambition no matter what, where as Romney was a flip flopper depending on the audience even though I think he truly did have a clear preference on what he believed which was a completely insane extreme pro corporate agenda!
Again, I never ever said either one was better or worse than the other. I was giving my own personal view on what kind of a person Jindal was which I think is a little worse (but only by a little!)because he truly has no preference at all for any issue.
