Well I think they would make an odder couple than

Biden and Obama. Romney needs fire next to him,

Jindal is about as exciting as corn flakes. He is

Qualified, smart, not am elite born with a silver spoon

and not retarded (Palin) but he can 't get

People fired up, retarded as she was, Palin could.

Romney needs the Christy The Hut, he can vomit

Acid on everything and get the right wing excited.

Just seeing how the progressives are getting already, I'd say he's a great choice.

What does Christy's size have to do with anything? NOTHING.

Judge him on his merits not on what he eats.

He has the entire nation fooled though.


Hate to break it to you, Romney is a real deal RINO.
Romney would make a great liberal if he wasn't so pro
Wall street and bomb bomb bomb Iran.

That's the thing though. It's not the "right wing" that they have to attract. They've already got that vote. They need the "swing vote".

Here's the most important part, imo, of your post, FlyersFan:
"...Born of imigrants from India..."

Therefore, Jindal is NOT a natural born citizen. Neither is Rubio. Neither are eligible for VP/President...

Jindal himself was born in the US.

Rubio definitely isn't, because his parents were not citizens of the US at the time of his birth. He has already stated that he feels he is eligible, and so he will probably be able to get something through Congress making himself eligible.

I don't know about Jindal, but if his parents were naturalized before he was born, and he was born in the US, then he would be eligible.

Jindal's great contribution to Republicanism: He said that he was absolutely against welfarism and handouts in the wake of tornadoes in the Midwest .... and then as Gov of Louisiana took all the federal money for recovery from Katrina being offered.

Right.

Only he doesn't typically address it.

nymag.com...


In the current campaign, Romney makes frequent reference to faith, God, and his fierce loyalty to “the same church.” But whether in debates, or in the acres of official material on his campaign website, or in a flyer pitched at religious voters in South Carolina, he never names what that faith or church is.


www.politico.com...


Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith has hovered over his 20-year political career like a thick layer of incense at Easter Mass. Negative perceptions of the religion so worried his 2008 presidential team that the dilemma had its own acronym in campaign power point presentations: TMT (That Mormon Thing).

Worries persisted this year as skeptical evangelical Christians flocked to other candidates—any other candidate it seemed — causing Romney to avoid all things Mormon in public.


Anyway, back on topic, it should come has no surprise to anyone that the GOP candidate needs to consider the faith of a Veep pick in determining viability.

I'm not sure if that is accurate. Was Obama Sr nationalized? Or do you just need one parent that is? Isn't the stipulation that you have to be born on American soil?

Well he's not Obama, so who cares?

I don't think the GOP will care about that

Ive watched him after he became governor in Louisiana after Katrina and during and after the oil spill. He seems like a hard worker and no-nonsense type person. I also thought that he might would have run for president but he stated earlier last year that he didn't want to and wanted to continue working for his state. I personally, think he would be a good choice for VP.

The GOP could always go to Kenya for a VP.

(Seemed to work for the democrats)

I like Jindal

From the little I know of him.

And, WTF does religion have to do with who's running the country?

More important is their sincere concern for the welfare of the country and who they works for, the CITIZENS of the America!!!!!!!!!!

...not the lobbyists, not the banks, not the unions, not the corporations.

I agree - it totally should not. But the reality of GOP politics is that religion does matter.

I thought of that. Their choice -

Obama - 1/2 black guy whose own pastor said Obama was seeped in Islam
Biden - Catholic

Romney - Mormon
Jindal - Indian (parents from India) Ex-Hindu now Catholic

I don't know what the WASP red neck segment stuck on things like race/religion will do.
Thankfully, there aren't as many of them around as there used to be.
