GOV. BOBBY JINDAL

According to the website TPMMUCKRAKER.com, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal “straight-up lied in his terrible sing-song response speech.” Jindal delivered the official Republican response to Barack Obama’s address to a joint session of Congress Tuesday. During Jindal’s speech, he told a story about overcoming government bureaucracy during Hurricane Katrina. Unfortunately, the story Jindal described about a Louisiana sheriff screaming at a government bureaucrat with Jindal in the room apparently never happened.

Even mainstream media organizations like CBS News are now questioning Jindal’s story. Political pundits and media critics were already asking the question, “How bad was Jindal?” BEFORE he was thought to have lied.
