Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, an Indian-American who is a rising star in the Republican Party, gave the GOP response to the Barack Hussein Obama "Rape of the Union" Address. Before he even uttered one word, the attacks began.
"Oh God," was an audible whisper viewers who were watching MSNBC heard as Jindal approached the podium.
That whisper came from the network's blowhard (and former Tip O'Neill aide) Chris Matthews, who Ann Coulter stated probably wants to have sex with Barack Obama (I think Ann is half right. Matthews does wish that, but is so in love with "That One" he probably pleasures himself everyday looking at Obama's picture).
Matthews even went further, making a racially-charged statement below which would have landed him in trouble, had he been, say, a conservative talking about a minority liberal.
They had to outsource the response tonight, the Republican party. They had to outsource to someone who had nothing to do with Congress because the Republicans in Congress had nothing to do with the programs he was talking about tonight or the record he referred to.
But as NewsBusters points out:
Jindal was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 2004 to 2006. Furthermore, Republican governors are quite important members of the party. The idea that the GOP was bringing in an outsider is flat out wrong.
Additionally, you have to ask if Chris Matthews is just ignorant or just to partisan to care? Democrat Governors Kathleen Sebelius (Kansas), Tim Kaine (Virginia's now part-time gov) and Gary Locke (Washington) gave responses to President Bush's addresses.
Michelle Malkin writes about another Jindal hit from the walking definition of "mean and ugly" Helen Thomas.
Helen Thomas has been gabbing with a film crew this morning, according to Washington Times White House correspondent Christina Bellantoni.
Bellantoni just posted this on Twitter:
“Bobby Jindal was ‘pitiful,’ Helen Thomas tells film crew, right before making a ‘Slum dog Millionaire’ crack.”
The media even found "conservatives" (meaning RINOs) to use in attacking Jindal, as did A(O)P:
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.
...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."
First of all, Williams is a liberal at NPR. David Brooks is a RINO who supports amnesty for illegal immigration, attacked Sarah Palin's candidacy during the 2008 election and was one of the phony conservatives who dined with Mr. Obama recently. Far from being conservative, Brooks is an elitist, country-club Republican who can be conveniently used by the liberal MSM to attack candidates and positions popular with the base.
