The names are familiar now:
Chris Christie, the now-famous tough talking Governor of New Jersey; Florida Congressman Allen West, the über patriotic Tea Party favorite. Spinning in the midst of these two superstars of the political constellation are Senators Rick Santorum and Marco Rubio, each in his own right a probable pick. Now Governor from Massachusetts needs to ask himself: who among these men can help me carry the aggressively- conservative Tea Party coalitions, the Deep South and the very conservative wing of the Christian right?
Back in 2008 and the mid-terms:
A young Governor from the Bayou State’s name was on the tip of everyone’s tongue– Bobby Jindal. You can read a brief bio here: ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bobby_Jindal ). This fellow talks tough, he’s truly pro-life, budget-conscious, an avid supporter of the Second Amendment, pro-business, pro-growth and a champion of the middle class.
Would Bobby Jindal be a logical choice for Mitt Romney? He brings experience as the Chief Executive of Louisiana, with a thriving economy despite a harsh recession. For those states where Christianity is a major concern, Jindal wears his faith on his sleeve. His being a Southerner can only help Romney, who will have to capture many of the Southern states to get the needed electoral votes. Lastly, Jindal is very much pro-oil and pro-drilling.
The reason for this piece was something I heard from a couple of folks I ran into the other day. When asked, these very knowledgeable, political professionals told me, if Mitt Romney wants to win, ” Bobby Jindal ” is the obvious answer.
What are your thoughts? Is Bobby Jindal the right choice? Will he complete the dream ticket Governor Romney needs to win back the White House for the right side of the aisle? We know that Chris Christie, Allen West, Rick Santorum, Marco Rubio and others, could be good choices, but what about this very quiet Governor from the Bayou? What about this little fellow who comes from Cajunland carrying a big stick?
