Governor Bobby Jindal caused great confusion and consternation and mayhaps a bit of pearl clutching amongst Washington wags, Monday morning, when he boisterously strode to the microphone after the National Governors’ Association meeting, and proceeded to let the president have it.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal launched into a repeated assault on President Barack Obama’s leadership in the shadow of the West Wing, in defiance of established bipartisan protocol. Speaking after a meeting of the NGA at the White House, Jindal, the vice chair of the Republican Governors Association, said Obama is “waving a white flag” by focusing on executive actions with three years left in his term. “The Obama economy is now the minimum wage economy,” Jindal added.
The trembling Democrat who followed Jindal was Dan Malloy, the governor of Connecticut. When he was through repudiating Jindal, Jindal returned to the mike and blasted the president some more..
“The National Governors Association is supposed to bring Democrats and Republicans together to discuss policy and share ideas for mutual success”, whimpered Zeke Miller of Time’s Swampland. “But after a meeting at the White House Monday, all pretense at bipartisan comity was shattered as a press conference with lawmakers descended into a partisan fracas.”
How dare he!!!
The Governor of Louisiana was DEFIANT of established bipartisan protocol. Goodness gracious… No Democrat has ever ever ever been defiant of established bipartisan protocols like this before. What a ruckus Bobby Jindal caused in Washington DC today with his shocking, rough defiance of established protocols.
Monday evening, Jindal went on Fox News’ Special Report with Brett Baier and doubled down on the “white flag of surrender” talk that had so upset Malloy.
Can we see a little more “defiance of established protocols” from republicans please? The president hasn’t been shy about showing his defiance of the Constitution, the rule of law, or the TRUTH for the past five years, for crying out loud. it’s the very least they can do.
