Finally, a conservative who remembers that small government was a key part of the platform. After so many big-spend, big-government conservatives (McCain and Obama were all hand in hand about these stimulus/bailouts) it’s nice to hear some good rhetoric on the other side. I’m glad Obama won for lots of reasons and hope he is effective, but I’m very open to real fiscal conservatism if it actually exists anymore outside of speeches.
Even so, it is very, very clear from Jindal’s response tonight that you just may have heard the first stump speech of the 2012 election. He’ll be 41. That would be a truly interesting race, and from a strategic standpoint, possibly the only way to even try to contest Obama if his support doesn’t crash.
Down with the parties. Up with good ideas. There is my random, anti/pro-everyone thought tonight.
PS I’m fine. The bed thing is getting old.
