Walter Boasso or Bobby Jindal?

23 posts in this topic


I thought Blanco was okay, and then Katrina happened and after that corruption was apparent. She's just the sweet old lady face on that old, corrupt democratic machine.

I am done voting for democrats in Louisiana.

Gotta to go with Jindal. Louisiana will finally get a good house cleaning whether it wants one or not. They weren't ready 4 years ago; then Katrina changed that with Queen B.

I probably won't make up my mind between Georges, Jindal, or Boasso until next month. All of them have plusses and minuses, and I'm still undecided on who will be the best governor for the state. None of the other candidates are on my radar.

Jindal, no question between those two. The only other person I have been interested in is Foster Campbell. I know he is a north Louisiana guy, but has anyone heard or looked at his plan to eliminate income tax and get rid of the oil and gas production tax, which was put into effect in the 1920s, and replace it with a oil and gas processing tax? Apparently we barely produce these products anymore, we just process them. I know it sounds pie in the sky, but I would like to see someone take on big oil. He claims it would generate billions in new revenue. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

I watched the 4 front-runners in this race debate it out last night at LSU-S (I watched it on video, I wasn't in attendance.) Boasso and Jindal are so at one another's throats that it disgusts me.... the thing that pissed me off the most was, whenever Jindal would make a point Bo-ASS-o would respond with the same damn thing, only worded differently. I caught that on numerous occasions and I wanted to kick Bo-ASS-o in his big melon head.

This weekend, I have changed my mind.

Now...I have thought long and hard about this, but I think I want Les Miles to be the next govenor of Louisiana.

This took me completely by surprise today. I knew he would win, but I wasn't expecting it so soon. I had forgotten about the primary law which has made it possible. This will be good for Louisiana to have a strong leader to move the state forward instead of bickering about whose fault the Katrina debacle was. When will Governor-Elect Jindal take office?

Congrats to all my friends in Louisiana! :yahoo:

I'm really looking forward to seeing what all Jindal will do for LA.

Great news.

Did Sammy Kershaw win too? I figured that if the Terminator can govern California then a country music singer would be fitting for Louisiana.

Maybe Bradshaw will run one day.

FYI - here's the only thing I've been able to find about Lieutenant Governor. According to Wikipedia, he only received 30% of the vote but was still in second place.

The excerpt:

"Kershaw was defeated in his bid as a Republican candidate for lieutenant governor of Louisiana in the jungle primary on October 20, 2007. He received 375,964 votes (30 percent). The incumbent, Mitch Landrieu, was easily reelected, but Kershaw outpolled a second Republican candidate, State Representative Gary Beard of Baton Rouge, who finished with only 11 percent."

The source:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sammy_Kershaw

I still think if he'd done free concerts in the 10 largest cities in Louisiana prior to election day he'd have been elected. :P

Amen to that! A promising bright young innovative Governor like Jindal is just what Louisiana needs! But it may take him awhile to fix Blank-O's mess??
