Bobby Jindal: Selling a Product that Works

I felt sorry for the President last night.  It is never easy to sell a product that everyone knows does not work and which no one, having thought about it, wants.

Gov. Bobby Jindal had an easier time of it.  He was selling a product that everyone who lived through the Carter years and then saw “Morning in America” under the great Ronald Reagan knows will work.

Instead of debt and pork, Jindal’s products were tax cuts and deregulation.  Instead of “pie in the sky” alternative energy, Jindal could talk of allowing companies and entrepreneurs to develop oil, natural gas and coal resources and to build nuclear planst to meet the nation’s energy needs.

In 2010, America has to make a choice.  I hope it will be the choice of freedom and reason.
