The Jindal Administration Probably Doesn’t Want You To See This Graphic…

I posted this in the 2012 US Elections forum rather than in Regional Politics because some people are actually considering Jindal as a VP choice.

Thanks to ex governor, Democrat Kathleen Blanco and RINO Bobby Jindal, for making Louisiana #2 in the nation in government growth and spending.
(Jindal took office in 2008)

So in a time where Louisiana is losing population due to a bad economy, hurricanes, BP oil disaster AND Obama's HATE and war on offshore drilling, Jindal continues the "whore's" spending orgy, he continues to TAX and SPEND!

But being the slimy RINO that he is he has the country fooled into thinking he is a spending cutter...

The state had a boom in government revenues and spent every dime of that money. The boom is over, so it’s cutting. And Jindal, in the style anyone would expect of a politician regardless of stripe, is taking credit for being a budget-cutter.
He’ll have an opportunity to take even more credit for doing so now that the feds are slashing Louisiana’s Medicaid funding by almost $900 million, an 11 percent decrease overnight…

Still, recent history – and particularly the history between 2000 and 2010 – shows growth of government in Louisiana that totally outstrips any reasonable expectation, at a time when the demand for those government services wouldn’t appear to be all that high based on the per-capita income growth numbers and the population figures.

Do not trust Jindal, he is not a conservative.

There's plenty of drilling going on in the gulf. Why do you believe Obama is at war with gulf drillers?

Neither Jindal nor Rubio is Constitutionally eligible to be VP/President--they are NOT natural born citizens. Minor vs. Happersett defines natural born citizens...

Minor and Happersett was not about natural born citizen, it was regarding the rights of woman in the same light as men. The comments about children of one alien parent being in DOUBT when it comes to natural born citizenship was just a opinion from the judges side, not the actual ruling. The courts have already made it clear that you do not require both parents to be American citizens in order to be a natural born citizen;

Allen v. Arizona Democratic Party,

Most importantly, Arizona courts are bound by United States Supreme Court precedent, and this precedent fully supports that President Obama is a natural born citizen under the Constitution and thus qualified to hold the office of President. See United States v. Wong Kim Ark (addressing U. S. Const. amend. XIV) ; Ankeny v. Governor of the State of Indiana (addressing the precise issue). Contrary to Plaintiff’s assertion, Minor v. Happersett does not hold otherwise

Farrar v. Obama,

Obama "became a citizen at birth and is a natural-born citizen,"

Ankeny v. Governor

President Obama was a United States citizen at the moment of his birth in Hawaii. Since he held citizenship at birth all constitutional qualifications have been met. There is no basis to question the presidents citizenship or qualifications to hold office

Voeltz v. Obama

I have reviewed and considered the legal authority submitted by the plaintiff and the Defendants on this issue and conclude as a matter of law that this allegation, if true, would not make the candidate ineligible for office. Cited Hollander v. McCain and Ankeny v. Governor of Indiana.

Tisdale v Obama

The eligibility requirements to be president of the United States are such that the individual must be a "natural born citizen" of the United States and at least thirty-five years of age. U.S. Const. art. II, S1. It is well settled that those born in the United States are considered natural born citizens. See, e.g United States v Ark, 169 U.S 649, 702 (1898)

Supreme court justice J. Grey in his ruling on the Wong Kim Ark (1898) case:

The Fourteenth Amendment of the Constitution, in the declaration that
“all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside,”
contemplates two sources of citizenship, and two only: birth and naturalization. Citizenship by naturalization can only be acquired by naturalization under the authority and in the forms of law. But citizenship by birth is established by the mere fact of birth under the circumstances defined in the Constitution. Every person born in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, becomes at once a citizen of the United States, and needs no naturalization

Both Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal are eligible to be vice presidents or presidents by the fact they were born on U.S soil.

As for very Bobby Jindal would make a good vice president? No he wouldn't in my opinion. He'd be ripped apart by the Obama machine the minute he enters into the campaign. Rubio is a dudd, I don't think he offers much to the Romney campaign, he comes off as a typical establishment republican. Romney's best chance is to go with Rand Paul or a similar candidate on the ticket.

Name me one VP candidate who has won the election for the Presidential candidate. Doesn't matter who Romney picks. In the end it is all about Romney and what the voters think about him.

I can name one that clearly hurt a candidate, Sarah Palin. Independents ran screaming.
