If you want to know Louisiana's Gov. Bobby Jindal's response to President Obama's speech Tuesday night, look no further than to his performance on Press The Meat this morning.

Gov. Jindal who is one of the leading contenders for the GOP nomination in '12 managed to work in every GOP talking point within 5 minutes. I am surprised the host David Gregory didn't give him a High-Five. Jindal and some other Republican governors are saying they may not take some if not all of the stimulus money coming to their states. That includes our illustrious Gov. Haley Barbour. Funny how all the governors that are saying this are southern governors with not only large African-American populations but also a shit load of poor white folk. Any help for them is no help for the GOP in the next election. And let's face it. All of this is posturing. The GOP think they have a winner with their opposition of what is now THE LAW OF THE LAND! The stimulus bill has been passed into law. Governors Jindal and Barbour want to keep fighting against a law that has been passed. The time for debate is over. It is time to get to work and help get our country functioning again.
