Jindal gets some tough questions on 'Meet the Press'
He now seems to be signaling his "availability" as a presidential contender, speaking to Republican groups in Iowa and New Hampshire among other stops. He is considered a longshot at best.
It is my opinion that Jindal has neglected his duties in Louisiana for his barnstorming. In trying to bolster his reputation as a staunch conservative he has sacrificed the state's best interests in favor of his national image. His policies have harmed the educational system of the state and its social programs.
The Daily Beast points out that, among governors: "Jindal has a 35/53 approval/disapproval number, putting him 18 points under water, a figure only better than Illinois’ Pat Quinn and Rhode Island’s Lincoln Chafee, who are not seeking re-election."
Jindal is the son of Indian immigrants, but has asked Congress to resist President Barack Obama's promised executive action to help parents of children legally in the United States to remain and get work permits.
