Governor Jindal from Louisiana is fantastic.
David Brooks: “In a moment when only the federal government is actually big enough to do stuff, to just ignore all that and just say ?government is the problem, corruption, earmarks, wasteful spending,? it?s just a form of nihilism. It?s just not where the country is, it?s not where the future of the country is.”
Kathryn Jean Lopez: “E-mails I?m getting are from disappointed conservatives. They wanted a full-throated response to Obama and expected and/or wanted more.”
Ramesh Ponnuru: “weak”
Jim Geraghty: He seemed to have somehow figured out a way to speak too quickly and too slow at the same time.
Tom Tancredo: “I think that performance would very well have put the last nail in the coffin for him, for running for president.”
And on Fox News:
BRIT HUME: ?The speech read a lot better than it sounded. This was not Bobby Jindal?s greatest oratorical moment.?
NINA EASTON: ?The delivery was not exactly terrific.?
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: ?Jindal didn?t have a chance. He follows Obama, who in making speeches, is in a league of his own. He?s in a Reagan-esque league. ? [Jindal] tried the best he could.?
JUAN WILLIAMS: ?It came off as amateurish, and even the tempo in which he spoke was sing-songy. He was telling stories that seemed very simplistic and almost childish.?
Christian Morgan, soon to be on staff at the RNC, is too extreme for Fox News.
