"Is Obama Playing The Race Card?"

Barack Obama: “what they’re going to try to do is make you scared of me. He's got a funny name. Doesn't look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills. He is risky."

Comments made by Barack Obama in Springfield, Mo., in response to John McCain's attempt to paint him as a lightweight. A careful observation of these comments and it is clear that Obama is bringing up race and not McCain. Furthermore, Obama is the presumptive Democratic nominee, every one knows his name isn't like others and his face isn't on a dollar bill, he should be discussing the economy and high gas prices. Why now is he going off message? Is Obama feeling insecure over his background? Ordinarily, the media would dissect such comments, but because Obama is the favorite candidate his statements go unchecked and McCain is attacked. Why? Because the media feels that McCain pushed Obama into making the comments. What??

"My Homeboy Ludabama:?"

"Hillary hated on you, so that bitch is irrelevant...McCain don't belong in ANY chair unless he's paralyzed. Yeah I said it cause Bush is mentally handicapped." Raps the rapper Ludacris aka Christopher Bridges in his latest song "Politics". "The first black president is destined and it's meant to be..."paint the White House black." Such vitriolic language coming from a supporter of Obama. Why hasn't the media questioned Obama's association with the rapper, who held a fundraiser for him last year? Granted Obama has denounced the lyrics, but why is it he seems to associate with individuals with questionable judgment? There seems to be a pattern_ Rev. Wright, Bill Ayers, Tony Rezko etc. The left wing media apparently doesn't deem an indepth reporting on these individuals and their relationship to the possible President of the US as important.

As for the lyrics to "Politics" the words are highly offensive, not to mention disrespectful and misogynistic (toward Hillary Clinton, didn't she and Obama become friends?). Was Ludacris like Nas (who wanted to title his album Nigga) looking to sale records when he made this piece of mindless junk? While some would call it art, and perhaps it is, it doesn't remove it from the category of filthy junk, as some art tends to be. What's even more disturbing _ the fact that Obama seems to speak against the filth in the lyrics yet and still he associates with these low-life's. Wonder why? Is it a sign of the times or just Obama trying to be hip to get votes? But who's votes? He already has the African American vote. This vote is locked signed, sealed and ready to be delivered not matter what happens. Something else to think about...why is it these foul lyrics always seem to come from the mouths of the ever troubled African American men or boys? An endangered group in our society? Can't they rap about something more uplifting?

And believe it or not rappers will be rapping at the Democratic Convention in August. How will Obama flip this script? His message of hope trailed by the rapping of kill'em shot'em and Ghetto fabulous?

Is The Surge Working?

John McCain can't get any props from the media. The latest is his sparing with Obama over the surge in Iraq. Granted McCain voted for the war, but cut him some slack, afterall the surge is working. Barack Obama has danced all over the question on the surge working in Iraq. He would prefer to stick with the one liner of we should have never gone to Iraq. Ok. Fine. We should not have gone, but now that we are there what is working _ the surge. Why want the media take Obama to task on this issue? It is as though Obama can do no wrong. The picture they paint of McCain is one of doom and gloom. It is obvious, once again the media is obsessed with Obama. This presidential race is for Barack Obama to win.

"Saint Obama...He Saves"

He seems to do no wrong. All are mesmerized by his speeches. His looks are divine and he walks with grace. He has come to save _the United States and the rest of the world _ from all that ails us. He will bring you peace and give you rest. He is the chosen and only one. Without him there is no hope.

Vote for Barack Obama. He is a deity.

Has John McCain Entered The Building?

All are waiting for the real John McCain to step on stage and take charge. What is he waiting on? Give us a race John. Show us what you are made of. Yes, the media seems to be infactuated with Barack Obama, but can you blame them? What are you doing John to make yourself known. Even FOX News isn't giving you any positive airtime. What is going on? John McCain all are waiting for you to do something. Do anything. Try this _ Obama was wrong on the surge, which has and is working in Iraq. Barack is yet to admit he was wrong. Why don't you challenge him on this point? Light some fire under him and make him defend himself. John...John...were are you? Talk about Obama's lack of judgment on realizing the surge is working. You could even go after his idea of removing troops from Iraq and sending to Afghanistan. One of his own supporters, Dr. Zbigniew Brzezinski, has said this could be a mistake _ talk about it John. Steal his thunder. Remember John you are in a race. It is competitive. It is ok to get a little fired up! You can't sit at the head of your own dinner table and act like the waiter. Wake up!

"More Choices For President"

If you're not happy with the candidacy of Barack Obama-Democrat or John McCain-Republican, it's not to late to support either of the pictured lesser media covered candidates, who are also running for the President of the United States. From left to right Ralph Nader-Independent Party; Bob Barr-Libertarian-Party Candidate and Cynthia McKinney-Green Party Candidate.

As was expected, Barack Obama wooed the crowd in Germany. Isn't he running for President in the United States. Shouldn't he be working on attracting the blue collar voters in America. Remember them? The voters he couldn't attract and the media said he didn't need during the primaries. And then there is John McCain. If you are listening to the media, you would think the race is over and Obama has this thing wrapped up. But a closer observation and look at the national polls tells a completely different story the race is close. But this really doesn't matter, if McCain doesn't wake-up from his stupor and realize he is running for the President of the United States. How many times has he tried to get the nomination for the Republican Party. Now he has it, and what is he doing? Hello?? Earth to McCain!!

"Is It Really A Competition"

Is it really a presidential race? Is it a competition even? If so, how can McCain compete with a young, good looking, vibrant-man with fresh ideas? This is a case of the young and the old. New ideas verse the old status quo. This isn't to say McCain's ideas aren't good and won't work, but the American voter seems to be leaning toward something new. Whatever McCain puts out there will be seen as a throw back to the Bush years, which some see as being disastrous. Where did it all go wrong and can McCain change it? One suggestion for McCain is to stop with the old fogy attitude, develop a personality somehow and become more approachable. Change your attire and relax a little. Yes you are a Republican, but even they know how to have fun _ look at George Bush, Jr. The world is changing. America has changed and wants to be hip. Take heed and follow. Go where the people want you to go. Give the people the candidate they want.

"All Eyes On The Man And His Ball"

If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video must be worth millions! Click on the video below to see Barack Obama’s athletic side.

According to Andrea Mitchell, an MSNBC news correspondent, who is traveling overseas with Barack Obama, the news media was not given photo access to the presumptive Democratic nominee and his travel delegation on their trip. Nor did Obama conduct press conferences for reporters. The pictures and video you are viewing were prepared by the military press and released to the public. While the media has reported that Obama and his travel delegation have been well received so far on this trip, no one in the media has protested their lack of access to him. In previous years' reporters have always had access to candidates, why else would they travel with them?

Another Interesting tidbit, a majority of the soldiers in the pictures and video are minorities. You would be hard pressed to find such a photo in America (all minority). Is this indicative of the make-up of soldiers fighting the war in Afghanistan and Iraq? Or could it be that here in America there isn’t a large minority population for Barack to have a photo with?

And finally, did anyone think the Iraq’s Prime Minister Nouri Al-Maliki would not agree with Obama’s troop removal time table? It seems everyone wants America out except the Bush White House. Certainly there is a risk in a precipitous removal, but there is also a risk in staying too long.

Next stop Jordan!

"The "N" Word"

No matter what any one says, whether they are black or white or even God himself (not that he would use the word) it is NEVER EVER ok to use the "N" word. In a joke, in a song, in private conversations, never, ever should the word be seen as acceptable to use. There are no exceptions.

African Americans are deceiving themselves to think that they own the word and only they should be allowed to use it, as was suggested by Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Shepherd this week on The View, when discussing Jesse Jackson's use of the word. If you recall, Jackson landed in hot water last week when he was heard on a “hot mic” saying he wanted to remove a part of Barack Obama's male anatomy. What wasn't heard or even reported until now is that Jackson used the "N" word.

Allow me to dissect Jesse Jackson wanting to forcibly remove Obama's testicles. Jackson’s comments were not only said in bad taste but could be viewed as a racist remark. Does this make Jackson a racist? Many would say no because both he and Obama are black. Therefore, his comments get the label in bad taste. But I am sure many whites are thinking how did he (Jackson) get away with making such a comment? A white man would have been castrated, metaphorically speaking of course, for uttering those words. Now a brief lesson in history: During the Jim Crow era black men who were lynched were also castrated by white men. So, if a white man of Jackson’s prominence had made similar remarks he would probably be looking for another country to live in (even if he was speaking metaphorically like Jackson). Lesson to learn: what’s good for the goose isn’t always good for the gander.

Second point, In America White's can't always speak metaphorically when it applies to blacks _but blacks can. Heck blacks can speak about any group they please (except for Jews) without feeling the heat. Why is this? I don't know. But maybe there is a sense of entitlement by blacks. Because they have endured so much under the white man a pass has been extended to them. Is this fair? NO! It’s not even true.

Now back to the dreaded and feared 'N" word. I repeat, it is never ok to use the word no matter who you are, or the content it is being used. The new cool fascination with the “N" word is viewed the way it is today because some blacks have been trying to take the word and remove the sting from it. Sorry folks it won't work. I will use the analogy of body odor. No matter how you try and cover it up with cologne or spray _ body odor is body odor no matter whose body it comes from. The only way to get rid of it is to wash it away. Or more basically crap stinks you can't cover it up. Likewise the "N" word is demeaning, hurtful and derogatory no matter who says it.

If blacks continue trying to convince themselves that only they can use the word and not white or yellow people, a disservice is done. How can we become one united group sharing the same values and ideas when separate rules are set up for different individuals? Some blacks say they use the word as a term of endearment. What?? History has already defined the word as being negative, why then would a person want to endear a person with such a negative word? Can't another word be used _ like “honey”?

In my view, an attempt to justify the use of a word, which has and will always have a negative meaning, is an indication of deeper psychological issues with the group or person justifying its use.

The 2006 picture of Barack Obama in Somalia dressed in a turban and robe got the ball rolling. When the pictured was printed in newspapers across the nation and the world, it was easy for his camp and the media to blame Hillary Clinton and staff for this chicanery, as oppose to explaining why he was dressed in the attire. Needless to say the picture left lingering thoughts that perhaps he was a Muslim. Not that there is anything wrong with being a Muslim, so we are told _ and so this story continues.

While a picture is worth a thousand words, a name can be worth even more_ Barack Hussein Obama, II. Even without the middle name the first name and surname aren't the typical American name. In the late seventies and eighties, many Afro centric names were the crave in some African American families. Research later revealed people with Afro centric names were often discriminated against. So how could it be a man of mixed race could rise up against uncertain odds and be so close to possibly landing the highest job in the nation with out bearing the typical American name or even having experienced what, some blacks of the Civil Rights era say, it is like to be African American in America?

Could the stereotypes that so many African Americans have fallen victim to down through the years _ the connotation of just being black be the undressing of Obama for having a Muslim name? Certainly there is nothing wrong with having a Muslim name or wearing Muslim clothing. It is the connotation that the name brings and perception by some is what creates the problem.

Early this year, many in the media had said never in the history of this great nation has there been an election year with so many twist and turns. After nearly two-hundred plus years, this country is at the precipice of possibly electing the first African American president. With all of the country's knowledge, fortitude, grace and dignity the country's newspapermen, it seems, are perplexed at how to cover an African American running for the presidency against a white man.

In previous years, it was easy to say one of the candidates was prejudice or pandering to black or favoring whites. The media now seem to have lost its footing reporting lest they be perceived as being prejudice. One would think that at this juncture the many brilliant reporters and commentators out there would know what to say, how to say it, how to write it and how to print it, but they don't.

Perhaps all should think back to the speech Obama gave in March on race. The speech that seemed to capture the attention and garnished him praise from the left, as well as the right. Quoting from a few lines in his speech: "that we do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Let us be our brother's keeper, Scripture tells us. Let us be our sister's keeper. Let us find that common stake we all have in one another, and let our politics reflect that spirit as well."

Isn't it remarkable that many heralded the speech as being great but have forgotten its premises? If one were to re-read and study his speech, it is clear to see everything he spoke about he is pretty much doing. Thus it makes it easier to report on his candidacy and ask the important questions without seeming to be a racist or prejudice.

"A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words"

Political satire to some but a defining moment to others.

Barack Obama and his campaign staff can attack this one or two ways: 1) Do nothing and allow The New Yorker to define him and his wife or 2)Define himself, thus putting to rest all the unanswered questions lingering in the minds of many on his religion and faith. Unfortunately, he helped create the Obama-mystique earlier on by getting cozy with the left wing media and allowing them to define and defend him on everything from religion, Rev. Wright, meeting with dictators of other countries with out conditions and reasoning why he wasn't wearing the American flag on his lapel (he is now wearing the flag).

It would be advised that he opt for the second choice. Perhaps holding another press conference, similar to the one back in March, when he discussed Race in America would be in order. Only this would be billed "This is Who I Am and Where I Stand". The media would eat it up, and he would be re-introducing himself to the American public right before the DNC convention in August. This could backfire, for he could find himself attempting to correct every inaccurate story about himself. Wait a minute _ doesn’t he already have a website which debunks these times of rumors?

Cautiously, doing nothing and wishing it away might not be a good idea. Let's face it, The New Yorker's audience are very astute and are in on the political satire. It is the "average Joe's" who will see the cover, not read the inside story but feel “a picture is worth a thousand words”, and their suspicion and the rumors heard are true. These are the people Obama wants to reach and correct these misconceptions of who he is. After all, some of them are swing voters. He will need their votes in the general election.

Who Would You Trust In A Crisis?

Truth or Fiction: Did Iran test long-range missiles this week that could possible reach Israel or even the coast of the United States? Do the Iranians have long-range missiles? Or is this all a well manufactured scare tactic by someone's government (think Iraq and weapons of mass destruction) to make us worry? If the Iranian government has the capabilities to fire long-range missiles, who would you trust at the helm of our government? Who would exercise good judgment to deal with an ever increasing tense situation in the Middle East...John McCain or Barack Obama? And on the economy, who do you feel can turn it around? Who could take charge from day one and take the 3 a.m. call and be ready to act with sound judgment? Is either John McCain or Barack Obama ready for such an important job? Is McCain too old and out of touch with the ordinary man? Is Obama too young and inexperienced and out of touch with the ordinary man. Are both these men simply the quintessential politician? How do we decide which politician is right for our country? Perhaps the media knows?

"I'm Sorry, So Sorry"

Ouch! The thought of removing someones testicles hurts. Jesse Jackson obviously thought the same thing and decided against it, but only after realizing the crude comments he had made to a fellow guest about cutting off Barack Obama's n*** were caught on a hot mike and aired on Fox's O'Reilly Factor. Now, as oppose to a removal Jesse Jackson is kissing ass. You got to love politics. This isn't the first time Jackson has put his foot in his mouth and it probably won't be the last.

Why was Jackson looking to castrate Obama? It is over a matter which has been brewing for quiet sometime in the African American community. Some feel Obama has been talking down to African Americans when he discusses the need for social responsibility in the community. Lately, he has been lauding faith based programs as a possible panacea to quell some of the social issues in the African American community, as opposed to handouts from the government?

Who better to deliver this message of "social responsibility" and using faith based programs than Barack Obama? So many others have tried to deliver similar message and have been rebuked. Think Bill Cosby, who was lampooned and called an “Uncle Tom” for his harsh (and rightfully so) criticism of certain elements of a wayward African American community. The issues of black on black crime, high school drop-outs, drugs, teenage pregnancy, single-parent homes, misogynous music and the list goes on will not go away until confronted directly in the African American community and by the African American community. After all, who best knows the community?

Surely by now all should know Barack Obama will hold the black community responsible for what ails it and will not sweep the issues under the proverbial rug. It is up to the community to seek out and create social programs and identify good sound realistic role models for young people. Strange as it is, the role models chosen today are those with stains on their clothes and greed in their minds. Tossed aside are the educators, communicators and scientist for the favoring of rock stars, ball players, rappers, etc. Granted, these too can be models, but what's it all about when an honest profession of a stay at home mom or blue collar dad is looked down upon for the lack of glitz and glamour? What's it all about, when those chosen to be idolized are often promoters of violence and carefree attitudes, who promote a faux culture of ghetto fabulousness with blood stained hands wearing a diamond pinkie ring? Good judgment is in order to redirect the young minds on obtainable role models.

The days of old blaming the "White Man" and “racism” are over. It is time to look in the mirror and blame your self. Better yet check the front door for the message is “the buck stops here!” No more of the race card being played or money being paid to keep the threats of protest away. Self responsibility and determination is on the agenda for the day.

As Obama’s campaign slogan says, “Change We Can Believe In.”

"Judgment Call"

Senator Barack Obama has a very attractive family, and he wanted the world to know it. But he could have gone a bit over board when he recently allowed a cable entertainment show access to his family over the weekend. After seeing footage of the show being broadcast around several cable stations, he and his wife are now having reservations on an interview given, which included their young daughters. Speaking to a morning show TV host Obama said, "It was an exception, it was Malia's birthday, we were in Montana, everybody was having a good time... I think we got carried away a little bit". He continued and said, "Generally what makes them so charming (his two daughters) is the fact that they're not spending a lot of time worrying about TV cameras or politics and we want to keep it that way."

Question: What did he think would happen allowing his young daughters to be interviewed? This is a man who had said earlier in the campaign he wanted to keep his family life private. Didn't he know the show's producers would hock the interview around town to other stations in order to generate publicity and increase their ratings before it aired the piece? The left wing media is saying no harm done (again explaining away his judgment slip). To be honest, who doesn't want to see sweet kids? It shows another facet of the candidates family life. However, the media had a different response when Hillary Clinton had her adult daughter on the campaign trail. The media thought it inappropriate (just in case you missed it, Chelsea is an adult). When Chelsea was a kid, she was never interviewed. Smells like a double standard? You decide.

"Does Any One Care?"

HARD FACT: During the first couple of weeks' this summer three African American teenagers were killed in New York City. Since the beginning of 2008 more than a dozen African American's have been murdered in the City and the number keeps growing. Quiet as it's kept the perpetrators of these crimes were African Americans, with some of the victims knowing their identity.

Another fact: African Americans make up 12% of the US population and are more likely to die at the hands of another African American than at the hands of any one else. Where is the anger? Where is the concern? What is it all about...Black on Black crime. According to statistics, homicide is the leading cause of death for black men ages 15-24 and second leading cause of death for black women in the same age group. With these hard numbers presented from the Department of Justice why aren't more influential Black Leaders marching or protesting in the African American communities and yelling "Wake the hell up!" Why is it that only during an election year these numbers surface and the same old questions are put to the candidates, "What are you going to do about Black on Black crime?" Why look to the candidates? Why not look at the community leaders and the churches, which have always been cornerstones of the community? Who will stop the violence? Who will speak up?

More pointedly, why aren’t the self proclaimed black leaders the ubiquitous Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton out protesting against violence in the African American Community? These two men are always at the precipice of protesting any impropriety against blacks committed by blacks. Surely if blacks were being killed at the hands of white police officers these two would be at the precipice protesting.

An interesting observation, why does it seem the only time the death of a black man is protested is when he dies at the hands of a white man? Or a black man's life seem to have no value if taken by another black, but has value if taken by a white? Perhaps the Rev. Al Sharpton and Rev. Jesse Jackson who are seemingly the voice for black injustices can explain? And while they are at it, also explain why it is difficult to chastise their own community when in the wrong and destroying itself?

"Wake Up John McCain!"

Paging John McCain. Paging John McCain...Wake up sir! You are running for President of the free world. No time to dose. Paging John McCain... Albeit this is an old picture but many are wondering if John McCain is sleeping. While he lacks, so it seems, the finesse and charisma of his predecessors, he has got to breathe life in his stale campaign. He has got to find his "mojo".

The left wing media had reported that Hillary Clinton's long stay in the Democratic Primary would help John McCain define himself thus finding his "mojo". They were wrong. So what will it take? Granted he is going against many odds: an unpopular administration whose party he is a member, the war in Iraq and the economy among other things, all of which point to George Bush, the man whose job McCain wants. Not a good year to be a Republican. It seems this election is for the Democrats to loose and win. Wake up John McCain and be competitive. Let the voters hear from you the man who was in Vietnam. Voters need to feel your soul and see it. Things you don't want to talk about are the things the American people need to hear. Show them you are passionate and caring. Tear down the walls and expose a little of yourself. You have nothing to loose and a lot to gain. Be the soldier you are and take charge!

Don't be a "sleepin' bee."

"Moving To The Center"

Although it might be difficult to see him amidst all the crowd fanfare, he is there _ he being Barack Obama. And slowly he is moving to the center. The center? Yes the center, where all expected him to move and new he would move. Of course the left wing media, who also knew he would move there, denied it and attacked all who said he would move only in the end to once again eat crow and report he is moving. What is the big significance on moving to the center? Well the center is where most voters, mainly the ever coveted Reagan Democrats reside. If you want to win an election, especially a Democratic candidate, you best find yourself in the center. Just ask Billy boy (former President Bill Clinton). By moving to the center is Obama flip flopping?

While all candidates flip flop (including John McCain), it is important to point this matter out in relations to Obama who billed himself as a candidate of change and hope. And more so, because of his position on the Iraq War. Throughout the primary he consistently maintained rather sternly that he would pull our troops out of the country immediately, with in days of his inauguration he had said. His stance almost became a central focus of his campaign. If you will recall one of this foreign policy advisers even said Barack Obama knew what he was saying on troop withdrawal (within days of the inauguration) would be reversed if he became the nominee, as it was unrealistic. This same adviser was asked to leave his staff after making unkind remarks about his opponent Hillary Clinton.

Some may say he isn't flip flopping but seeing the issues differently. Perhaps and if this is the case, what does it have to say for his judgment, another central theme of his campaign. It seems, and is becoming clear that the great communicator is a politician after all.

Other significant positions he was against but now supports:

1) Gun control(supports Supreme Court's ruling allowing citizens to bear arms)
2) Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (wire-tapping law in favor of)
3) Fundrasing during general election and not receiving government matching funds
4) Wearing the American flag on his lapel
5) NAFTA in its current form as created by former President Bill Clinton(doesn't want to unilaterally renegotiate NAFTA)

"Wrong Song Selection"

What was she thinking? Why wasn't she thinking? Colorado singer Rene Marie was recently given the opportunity of a life time. She was asked to perform the American National Anthem 'Star Spangled Banner.' Instead of singing the song she was asked to perform at the Denver, Colorado's annual State of the City Address, she decided to be edgy. Rene Marie, a local jazz singer, sung the Black National Anthem 'Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing' to the lyrics of the 'Star Spangled Banner'. She said she went with her edgy version to to express how she felt being a black woman in America. What? Maybe she shouldn't have been thinking and just stuck with the task at hand. There is a season for everything and many singers have added their on take to the song, but to sing something completely different is over the top. Making a political statement was not something the City was expecting from her. You can bet she will never be asked to perform again and she has no one but her self to blame. Perhaps she wasn't being political but craving for attention. Knowing her action would gain much more attention then the local media coverage.

Click on the arrow below to hear the song Renee Marie should have sung, as performed by Whitney Houston at Super Bowl 25 in 1991.

"Life Imitating Art?"

"If anything, my portrayal of David Palmer (on the FOX TV hit show 24), I think, may have helped open the eyes of the American people," says the actor Dennis Haysbert on comments regarding a possible African-American president if Barack Obama is elected. If this is life imitating Art, let's hope Michelle Obama isn't like Haysbert's fictional wife on the show Sherry, played by the talented Penny Johnson Jerald.

Has anyone noticed how during the primaries the media (who should be unbiased) kept telling us the longer Hillary Clinton remained in the Democratic race the stronger John McCain was able to become and pull ahead in the polls. She suspended her campaign almost a month ago. Now the media is telling us John McCain is yet to define himself? And he isn't far ahead in the polls. What gives? One would think McCain would be far ahead in the race for the White House but he isn't. Is the media is flippin' and floppin'? Nothing unusual.

"and we are not saved..."

"Vigilante or The Right to Bear Arms?"

Is this what we can expect from the Supreme Court's ruling on the right to bear arms? What if anything will the future President do? Are we reverting back to the days of Cowboys and Indians?

What we do know, both Barack Obama and John McCain have flip flopped on the right to bear arms.

"A VP for McCain"

Exactly how close is Mitt Romney and John McCain? Do they really harbor a deep dislike for each other, as the media proclaims? It is being reported that McCain is seriously considering Romney as a possible running mate. While it isn't clear what voter segment Romney would bring to the table (Michigan, as he is semi-favorite son), he certainly has more of an impressive resume and business accumen than Bobby Jindal. Putting Jindal on the ticket would be political suicide. Jindal has far too many negatives and America would not vote for him (his being on the ticket is liken to Dan Quayle in the 80's). Jindal's time will come, but now isn't the time.
