PhilosopherStones thinks the speech was pretty good, compared to Obama:
I watched on FOX and the audio was atrocious, but at least Bobby looked us in the eye; something that the MasterOratorBator never did.The MasterOratorBator! Such wit!
Yes, he has a Loosiana accent which doesn’t quite qo with his Indian IT nerd face, but I thought the delivery was great.
bushwon would also like to make a comparison to Obama for some reason:
Really saddens me to read some of the downright NASTY FR swipes at Jindahl! Guess you prefer the teleprompter reading skills of the kenyan?!
Perhaps consillatory McCain will run in 2012 ;(
BTW, kenyan did not fool Wall Street as DOW futures are DOWWWWN,.
Because as goes the Dow, so goes America!
Cinnamon Girl is the first to point out a little detail about Jindal:
Like most Americans, I didn’t see or hear the Obama speech or the GOP response, but that was good timing by the Republicans to pick Jindal... Slumdog Millionaire, Mall Cop... Indians are HOT right now.Mall Cop?!
And, lest you think this was a joke or something, along comes Polarik
Obama ought to try growing up as an untouchable in Calcutta!???
Polarik also has this to add:
Highlights of Obama's Address
We will rebuild, we will recover and the United States of America will emerge stronger than before.
"We will destroy Capitalism, we will distribute the wealth, and the United States of America will emerge as the United Socialist State of America."
Only by understanding how we arrived at this moment that we'll be able to lift ourselves out of this predicament.
TRANSLATION:"Only by forcing me to show my credentials will you be able to lift yourselves out of this predicament I put you in."
It's like grade school. "Babababa! That's what Obama sounds like!"
But it is InterestedQuestioner that encapsulates the thread, going far beyond reality to call Jindal awesome (and Indian!) and Obama sucky:
It is interesting to see how Freepers can't really attack Obama's content or delivery, nor can they prop up Jindal. Instead, they can only attack the odd anti-American straw-man they've built up.
Obama introduced himself to the American people by his reference to his parents—an all American example of the melting pot.
Bobby's response was a rib shot directed at Obama. Gov. Jindal made a comparison between his parents (immigrants from India,) and Barack Obama’s folks. The implied difference was that Jindal’s parents were responsible. Obama’s philandering dad statutorilly raped an American teenager, absconded without seeing the lad, and later killed a man in Africa before drunkenly ending his own life. Obama’s mom later headed for the hills, abandoning “Barack junior” to be raised by her mother, the much maligned “typical white person.”
