Does anyone care that Bobby Jindal, Louisiana governor, is running for president?

Asked by elbanditoroso (28832points) June 24th, 2015

He announced today that he is a candidate. Depending on how you count, he is either candidate #12 or #13.

I think he’s late to the game, and that his gubernatorial failures in his state are going to doom him.

But the real question – does it matter at this point who is in the race for the republicans?

18 months is a long time. But my money is on Jeb.

However I am totally baffled by the clown car shit from the Republicans. Whatever happened to The Eleventh Commandment?

They are just burning money on the wack-a-doodles.

Well he was pretty much expected to join in the zoo parade, and a fascinating and spectacular menagerie it’s turning out to be. It’s a noisy crowd of raucous and ill behaved animals good for months of solid entertainment.

He talked a good game at one point, and had my interest. Since becoming governor, every time he opens his mouth, all I can do is shake my head in disbelief.

No it doesn’t matter who is in the race, because some of them have no expectations about being elected. Some claim they’re in the race to influence primary debate topics, but I believe that they’re in it for the attention, to increase their future speaking fees, or to increase their opportunities to land a cushy future job.

Jidal is lucky #13. Next week Chris Christy joins the clown car. The number of Republicans running just helps Hillary. Her only real competition between here and the White House is Bernie Sanders.

Let them all run and spend as much money fighting each other as possible.

This might help explain why the clown car gets so crowded.

Only one Republican clown will win the nomination and Jindal won’t be the one. But I’m not ready to say Jeb will be the one either. Nor am I ready to say Clinton will be the Dem.

So how do you like THEM apples?

The Republicans seem to have ceded to Hillary and are trying for name recognition for the next election.

With this strategy, they will lose again..

You can’t gerrymander the presidential elections like they have for the mid-terms.

I think there is something like 3 million new voters per year that are legal Hispanics. When you have people in the Republican party saying shit like, “I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”

They are Fucked
