Gov. Jindal: Sarah Palin is “absolutely” electable as president

From Bloomberg Television’s “Political Capital with Al Hunt.”
HUNT: Governor, let me ask you one final - I want to get one - I want to get one political question in. You’ve said there are a lot of strong GOP contenders, including Sarah Palin. Joe Scarborough, the former congressman, the other day said it’s time for Republicans like you to man up and acknowledge that Sarah Palin is a reality show star who can’t be elected. What do you say?

JINDAL: Two things. One, I love Joe. I’ve been on his show several times. But I don’t like anybody - whether it’s the Republican establishment, D.C. insiders - trying to tell the Republican voters who their nominee should be. I think there are several strong contenders. Governor Palin is one of them; there are many others. I don’t think the establishment should try and get together to pick the nominee. Let the voters decide.

HUNT: So you think Sarah Palin could be elected? Do you think Sarah Palin’s electable?

JINDAL: Oh, absolutely. I think it’s up to her to make the case to voters. I think we have several - and, by the way, I am biased towards governors and those that have run organizations and executives who’ve had to balance budgets, make tough choices.

But when I first ran for governor, Al, the establishment didn’t think I should run. There were folks - I write about it in the book - that didn’t think I should run. The money people got together and said, “Maybe you should get out of the race.” The voters get to decide that -

HUNT: I remember you and I talking -

JINDAL: - it’s not up to me. It’s not up to Joe. It’s up to the voters.
Smart man....

HaHaHaHa!

RWN, Who are you trying to convince?

You don't see to many Rombots posting blogs pointing out so-n-so says, Romney is electable.

WHY is that?

Like Jindal said, It's up to her to make the case.

as in: She certainly hasn't made it yet.

I just knew Jindal was a good judge of character and capability.

Although it's kind of easy. She's the one out there fighting Obama already. She's done more in the last couple of years to oppose Obama than all the other presidential hopefuls combined.

She certainly has "made the case."

Uh, that's just bull pure smelly bull crap. She has hurt the GOP as much as she has helped them.

Hahahaha, it is certainly a bad week for the anti-Palinites when they have to resort to non-sense like this.

OHIO JOE
