    It was booooring, stupid, inane, and I could barely stand listening to his voice. I don't think he read, or listened to Obama's speech. What a tool.
    If I can't be a good example, then let me be a horrible warning.

    You gotta love the Republicans. Their two "brightest lights" are a self-proclaimed exorcist (Jindal) and a witch hunter (Palin) and their moral leader is a drug addicted radio entertainer (Limpballs). They have a supporting cast of neutered members of Congress who can't take a shit without getting a fax from Karl Rove -- and even then they poop all over themselves. Jindal blows his maiden speech so bad that even the party sycophants couldn't stomach it. Palin's own daughter calls bullshit on her mother's "abstinence only" crusade. The party's last presidential candidate is wandering around DC shaking his cane and shouting at pigeons.

    I was embarrassed for him. It was if the speech was written based on wrong statements the President made in his speech. I actually thought maybe someone had given them a joke copy in advance. His voice was horrible. I just kept saying "make him stop!" If he is the next best thing the future looks strong for Democrats.

    GOP, Dems criticize Jindal's speech
    Earnest, awkward delivery earns comparisons to '30 Rock' character
    ANALYSIS
    By Beth Fouhy
    The Associated Press
    updated 9:06 a.m. PT, Thurs., Feb. 26, 2009

    NEW YORK - Insane. Childish. Disaster. And those were some of the kinder comments from political pundits about Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and his response to President Barack Obama's speech to Congress on Tuesday night.

    Jindal, 37, a Rhodes scholar and son of Indian immigrants, is considered a rising star in Republican ranks and a likely 2012 presidential candidate.

    GOP leaders, looking for a fresh face for the party's image, tapped Jindal earlier this month for the high-profile task of rebutting Obama's first address to a joint session of Congress.

    But in both style and substance, Jindal's speech has drawn flak from Republicans and Democrats alike.

    His criticism of government spending for emergency economic relief has been widely panned, especially given his state's receipt of billions in federal assistance after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. And Jindal's voice and earnest, awkward delivery have drawn comparisons to Kenneth Parcell, the geeky page on the NBC comedy "30 Rock."

    Indeed, a new Facebook group titled "Bobby Jindal is Kenneth the Page" had already attracted more than 1,800 members Wednesday afternoon.

    Republicans had high hopes for Jindal after his appearance Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press," where he delivered a forceful, concise critique of Obama's $787 billion stimulus plan and explained his decision to reject some of the money allotted for his state. He also impressed observers when he spoke to reporters after a meeting with Obama and other governors at the White House Monday.

    Jindal spoke from the governor's mansion in Baton Rouge, and critics pounced on his remarks almost immediately, panning everything from his overly folksy demeanor to his complaint that Obama's plan to revive the economy was "irresponsible."

    'Stale'
    David Brooks, a conservative New York Times columnist who has criticized aspects of the stimulus plan, nonetheless called Jindal's arguments "insane" and tone-deaf given the dire economic challenges the country faces.

    "To come up in this moment in history with a stale, 'Government is the problem, you can't trust the federal government' is just a disaster for the Republican Party," Brooks said on PBS' "The NewsHour With Jim Lehrer." "It's not where the country is, it's not where the future of the country is."

    Fox News commentator Juan Williams focused on Jindal's delivery.

    "It came off as amateurish, and even the tempo in which he spoke was singsongy," Williams said, adding that the content of the speech was "very simplistic and almost childish."

    Penni Pier, a political communication specialist at Iowa's Wartburg College, said Jindal's presentation was overly colloquial and his message of less government and more tax cuts was substantively thin.

    "It sounded like the same old rhetoric we had tax cuts the last eight years, and look where it got us," Pier said. "Jindal was also trying to be so familiar, he lost credibility. Obama is familiar, but at the same time always a statesman."

    To be sure, Jindal had a tough act to follow in Obama, a naturally gifted orator whose argument for vast federal intervention to stem the nation's economic crisis was widely praised. A CNN poll taken after his speech found 92 percent of viewers had a positive reaction to it.

    Rush Limbaugh, arguably the nation's most prominent conservative voice, defended Jindal on his radio show Wednesday while acknowledging that "stylistically," Obama had outshined Jindal.


    "The people on our side are making a real mistake if they go after Bobby Jindal," Limbaugh said. "We cannot shun politicians who speak for our beliefs just because we don't like the way he says it."


    Jindal was headed to Disney World Wednesday with his family for a vacation. But his chief of staff, Timmy Teepell, said his boss had prepared carefully for the speech and that his message was strong.

    "It's a challenge for anybody to follow Obama. The guy is one of the most gifted speakers of our generation," Teepell said. "Bobby's his own harshest critic. He's always looking for ways to improve."

    Yeah, David Brooks wasn't too kind to Jindal either.

    David Brooks was taken aback at how poorly Jindal performed. Both he and Mark Shields were nearly speechless about it. Jindal has this big moment and he wets himself. Not a good look for the so-called GOP golden child.

    Lets be fair, Bill Clinton wasn't so great at the 1988 DNC for Michael Dukakis either. (here he was on Johnny Carson afterward)

    I guess nobody can do it like Barack (2004 DNC for John Kerry).

    The Repugs are in big trouble if this is who they're letting hold the egg basket. Someone needs to ask him why the ninth ward still looks like a war zone so many years after Katrina. We volunteered not long ago and spent a week helping an elderly woman repaint and reroof her home. Most of the area is still in a bad way and the people are really grateful for anybody that lends them a hand. What happened to all the money allocated by Dubya's band of thieves that was supposed to go to help the folks there and return the ones that had to leave??? I wonder why the media never talks about these things when Jindal starts his Kerrylike monotone repetitive pronouncements of the last 8 years of DOOM.
    as privileged as a whore...victims in demand for public show, swept out through the cracks beneath the door, holier than thou, how?

    They should be asking for the scholarship back.
