Thumbs down Jindal Gets Endorsement; Candidate Accused Of Being Felon

http://www.ksla.com/Global/story.asp?S=7076058

Quote:
Republican gubernatorial candidate Bobby Jindal picked up the endorsement today of the Louisiana Realtors Association trade group.
Jindal, a U.S. congressman from Kenner, is one of four major candidates in the governor's race on the October 20th primary ballot.
One of Louisiana's candidates for governor may be booted from the race because he was convicted of a felony.
East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Doug Moreau is asking a judge to disqualify Vincent Mark Castillo of Saint Rose, who signed up for the race as a "no party" candidate. He is one of 13 people vying for the post in the October 20th primary election.
Well I don't know This Castillo but I thought all Politician were crooks. Besides look at William Jefferson, He was still re-elected after finding money in his freezer. There is also Edwin Edwards, I know some that would vote to re-elect him if he was out of prison and running.
As far as Jindal, I know someone that wrote him a letter for help and he sent them a letter back saying he could not help them. When this person called his office his staff hung up on them. They called the office in south louisiana and told them about the staff hanging up on them they said they would tell him. They still have not heard from him.

That's awfully vague. What kind of help was this person for? Was this person calling the office often and harassing? There are so many variables, but as of right now I am impressed by Bobby Jindal's intelligence and his presence. To me at least, he seems like a progressive person and I'm ready for that. Blank-o sounds like an idiot when she's on national television, and Boasso sounds very similar in his TV spots.

This state needs a change, and Jindal has so far shown me that he's the one who can bring about change. If he's voted in and he proves me wrong then I will have learned a lesson... but for now I believe that IF this state is going to change, we need a progressive leader and I see Jindal fitting the bill.

Yeah, those offices get lots of calls, and the staff is rather large. Boasso is not much different than Blanko, The only person for the job is Jindahl. Not only is he extremely inelligent, he actually wants to help this state. He is the kind of person we NEED as a Governor, someone who has REAL ideas and a proven record of getting rid of corruption. The "good-ole-boys" are scared to death of Bobby because they know they're doomed! They are already grasping at straws with their attack ads, but he will rise above and win this election. Now that the liberal voting block ,that was Orleans Parish, is Gone- WE ALL NEED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE of that and VOTE for change. Can you imagine the difference if we had him in office during Katrina?

For your info the person only called that office once and the worker hung up on them. There was no harassing. I would not vote for Jindal. I don't know who yet but not him. If the worker was having a bad day that is no excuse.

State map by voter registration

In 2004 in a speach Bobby Jindal said, "Business is leaving our state looking for people and people are leaving our state looking for jobs; what's wrong with that picture?"
I think he has the best view for bringing big business back to Louisiana therefore bringing good paying jobs. But he will have to be elected by people who want to work at good paying jobs. Some feel that our government is responsible for the masses and really don't care for the idea of working to pay their own way.
Look at this map and number of registered voters and you will see why Bobby lost to Blanco and the amount of votes that it will take to elect him. 698,726 republicans and 1,615,156 democrats. 602,360 other or no party affiliation.

Yeah, that must have been Jindahl's fault. And a GREAT reason not to vote for him-

FWIW I'm voting for Jindal. I've said it before and I'll say it once again, if you are expecting government to solve your problem, you will be probably be very disappointed by the results. There is nothing quite like self-sufficiency to make government smaller and less needed. If you like big government and want them to take care of you, move to a socialistic country like Canada or Venezuela or Cuba. Bon Voyage! Mail us on how things turn out!

Yeah, Jindal gets my vote too. Kathleen Blabbineaux Blank-O was disasterous and she should be tried for High Treason for her part in the illegal gun confiscation that took place in N.O. after Katrina. Jindal is a staunch defender of the Second Amendment, and thats enough for me.
