Jindal: GOP Lost 'Principles'

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal's rising star may have hit a hitch last night: His response to Barack Obama's speech was "childish" and "amateurish" even according to the commentators on Fox News. Part of his problem may have been that he had to follow President Obama. "Jindal didn’t have a chance. He follows Obama, who in making speeches, is in a league of his own," Charles Krauthammer said. Jindal attacked Obama over the stimulus in his speech: "Instead of trusting us to make wise decisions with our own money, they passed the largest government spending bill in history - with a price tag of more than $1 trillion with interest. While some of the projects in the bill make sense, their legislation is larded with wasteful spending."
