1 JJ, listen to it so I don't have to. Please.

2 What is the knock against Bobby Jindal? I just think our side is on crazy pills, people like him should be near the top of the pack. You have a Governor willing to take on entrenched interests and shake things up but because they aren't cartoonish figures, they get ignored.

3 Major rain up here today. oh, and the "news" is scaremongering me about a potential hurricane.

4 This is your second candidate interview this year, right? I don't recall, but did you guys get any candidates to agree to interviews in 2012? Just curious.

5 "What is the knock against Bobby Jindal? I just think our side is on crazy pills, people like him should be near the top of the pack." He is a wonk and beloved if other wonks. Normal people take more convincing.

9 Great article on how social media and phones are shrinking the internet and our public debate. http://www.roughtype.com/?p=6606 This explains more than anything how presidential campaigns have changed over the last 10 years.

10 the NATO phonetic alphabet has a singular purpose -- to make call-letters understood by just about everyone in the civilized world. For instance, J is "July." And C is charlie, while K is Kilo. It is, to any reasonable person, fool proof. But now the supreme a-holes at obama's NOAA are going PC with the storm naming. You do not name a storm "Juan" or "Joaquin," as is the most current storm. This is Idiocracy in the here and now, not hundreds of years in the future. Is obama's FAA gonna change the aviation alphabet to make it more PC and diverse, too? Planes will, literally, be flying into each other.

Posted by: Coolio at September 30, 2015 12:33 PM (BiSBB) He's managed to become unpopular in his own deep red state, and he's awful on immigration: He said in a NR editorial that he wants to increase legal immigration "by a lot", because apparently importing 1.2 million new 80-20 Dem voters a year isn't enough.

13 What is the knock against Bobby Jindal? I just think our side is on crazy pills, people like him should be near the top of the pack. He's not a really charismatic, compelling public figure and that's what it takes to be a top of the pack presidential candidate now.

16 This is your second candidate interview this year, right? I don't recall, but did you guys get any candidates to agree to interviews in 2012? Just curious. AoSHQ is slowly becoming recognized as the go-to site for biting conservative commentary. Rush mentions Ace occasionally now, Insty links him, as does BadBlue. I don't remember this happening a lot until about a year ago. I'd have to give the late, great Moron Andrew Breitbart credit for the initial exposure. Good on Ace.

Which is to our everlasting shame.  I'd love a Silent Cal in office - hell, I'd take  another Zachary Taylor compared to the shambling, clownnose gazoos infesting politics right now - but until the American public gets serious, we won't have a serious candidate for the presidency.  Or, at least, not one whose image is serious.

25 Folks, we won't have any say in this election. Other than our vote, which is purely symbolic. The deal is already done and the next pResident chosen. We have just not yet been told who it is. This election thing is just kabuki. I selected Cruz from the start, but he won't be the candidate unless the democrats and rinos are convinced the media propaganda ministry and their fraud-fu rules the 'contest'.

31 Oklahoma Department of Corrections officials say they are moving forward with plans for the execution of Richard Glossip at 3 p.m. Wednesday, despite bomb threats that have been phoned in to authorities. Pittsburg County Sheriff Joel Kerns said his office received a call around 11:30 a.m. Initial word of a bomb threat came from Tulsa County, with someone also calling the dispatcher for his office with a threat, Kerns said. http://goo.gl/kF0NlY =============== Hahahaha!

32 but until the American public gets serious, we won't have a serious candidate for the presidency. Or, at least, not one whose image is serious. Correct. In our system of government, we get the government which reflects the popular culture, not leaders that shape it. And as our national debate shrinks to 150 character shouts at each other and hash tags, the character becomes more shallow and unserious.

It seems the MO to get noticed for this election cycle is to seize on a previously ignored issue and let that be your focus for a while. Of course, you have to have some awareness of one or two of them first. I'll listen later to hear whose questions got axed.

69 So, we should go and fight for people that hate us? Is that the plan? I feel as though we should pack it up and go home and wait for nations to emerge from the chaos that is afoot today. Then, at our leisure, we can nuke a country and not some smelly stinking goat herding drug smuggling kidnapping dirty animals. Wouldn't that be better, to force the general population too sit upon the nightmare that they have allowed to emerge? Nuke those MF's!

73 I live in Louisiana -- Jindal is my governor and I voted for him twice. Anyone who likes him for POTUS doesn't know him. He's good on papewr but he's --at best -- an absentee governor (at worst negligent). He shines in areas he cares about; punts in those he doesn't.

84 Bobby has been my guy since 2008 (he was a potntial VP pick) and 2012. I've been following him a long time, and as such have had a long time to observe him. Smart as a tack, and strong on some positions that I like. Having said all that, he just isn't a good politician (you could say that this is to his credit). I can't put my finger on exactly what it is, he seems good at making a lot of noise, but then nothing ends up happening because of said noise. Not sure how to describe it.

Posted by: Soothsayer of the Righteous And Harmonious Fists In case anyone wanted to understand a jesuit or a leftist that thinks that they're intellectual (but i repeat myself). If the hack who is the current Pope wandered into most American churches, they would not equate abortion with the death penalty; despite the Conference of Bishops and many priests trying to sell the lie, it hasn't (yet) worked. But they obviously want one gone, and they will not exert the same amount of effort to stop the other. So this guy wanders into Congress, does one obligatory throw away line about abortion ( which is now largely a Federal issue and has been since 1973) and waxes poetic about the death penalty, which is mostly NOT a Federal issue. And he does a private meeting with Kim Davis which is only announced after the fact and he's on his jet outta here. No meeting at all with Cuban dissidents or prisoners. he made a big splash meeting with violent criminals here. Any smug bastard would be proud of themselves for the performance.

I think Bobby Jindal's been unfairly pigeonholed as a wonk, which has colored peoples' attitudes toward him, and personally believe Jindal would be an excellent President.   That said, Donald Trump's still leading (or tied with Carson) in the polls.   Maybe Trump's charisma is a dog-whistle kind of charisma to which only certain people are susceptible, because I just don't see the attraction and cannot understand why his supporters are so thrilled by the guy.

161 There's a reason Jindal's approval rating here in La. has been hovering around the 30% mark for quite a while. Louisiana has become a fiscal disaster on his watch and he has spent his time in office visiting Iowa on the state taxpayers' dime rather than pushing the kind of fundamental reforms the state so desperately needs and which he was uniquely positioned to deliver. His insistence a few years ago that "I have the job I want" was laughable, because Jindal was never interested in governing the state of Louisiana. We were simply a vehicle for his national ambitions. In this year's elections running against Jindal has proven to be good politics for Republicans and Democrats alike, as candidates from the race for governor down to the race for mayor of Lafayette have been cutting ads boasting about how they "stood up to the governor". I believed in and enthusiastically voted for this guy in 2003 and 2007. I did not do so again in 2011, because by that time, after a term in office, it had become clear what he was really all about. In 2015, as he prepares to leave a state that is a financial wreck, you'd have trouble finding a corner of Louisiana in which he could be elected dogcatcher.

183 159. Jindal can't call himself "Robert" because that isn't his name -- it's just "Bobby", which isn't actually short for anything. He took his name from the Bobby Brady character on "The Brady Bunch".

184 Jindal has been my top choice since 2008. Still is.

185 I like Jindal, he's my fave left since Perry and Walker dropped out. He speaks well and forcefully, hope he's in it for the long run.

186 Jindal, I'd think he'd make a good HHS secretary, as we shut the place down.

Good interview.

Governor Jindal reminds me (once again) why he was one of my favorites early on.

Not only has he been solely responsible for actually governing things (making many executive decisions in the process of leading his State) but he's also hyper-intelligent and extremely good at thinking on his feet and quickly expressing conservative ideas & principles  in readily understandable phrasing.

It's too bad he's stayed stuck in the basement of the polls. He really is one of the two best conservatives we have to choose from.

But he's also young enough to take several more bites at the presidential apple.

ace, I was surprised to hear he was(is) one of your #1's.
I thought you had dismissed Jindal because of seemingly insurmountable "charisma" issues.

189 Now I know why I don't like Jindal...  Classic non-answer to the H-1B question.  H-1B is out-of-control and killing the IT industry in this country.  The whole notion that we want smart immigrants who went to school here to work here is bogus.  Most of these H-1Bs go to weak schools and are scooped up by industry because they don't have to give them a raise for 6 years.

Jindal needs to read Norm Matloff's blog.
