Bobby Jindal Blasts Rand Paul

Yesterday Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal blasted Senator Rand Paul and Paul's comments on Republicans being the reason why ISIS has risen. According to the Washington Post, Jindal also compared Paul to President Obama and Hillary Clinton.

"This is a perfect example of why Senator Paul is unsuited to be Commander-in-Chief. We have men and women in the military who are in the field trying to fight ISIS right now, and Senator Paul is taking the weakest, most liberal Democrat position,” he said in a statement released Tuesday through his official gubernatorial office.

Jindal not only questioned Paul's qualifications -- he also called his foreign policy approach "outlandish” and indirectly compared him to former secretary of state Hillary Clinton and President Obama.

“It's one thing for Senator Paul to take an outlandish position as a Senator at Washington cocktail parties, but being Commander-in-Chief is an entirely different job,” Jindal said. “We should all be clear that evil and Radical Islam are at fault for the rise of ISIS, and people like President Obama and Hillary Clinton exacerbate it.”

I was wondering who the first Republican would be that was going to go after Rand Paul for his comments. I agree with Paul on many issues dealing with freedom and laws in the United States. However, it's his foreign policy ideas that worry me and make me believe that there is no way he will get the nomination.

Santorum is In

According to FOX News, Rick Santorum will be making his second attempt at running for President.

The former Republican Pennsylvania senator, while hoping to build off his solid performance in 2012, begins the race as a heavy underdog facing a crowded field. He planned to make his announcement surrounded by factory workers on the floor of a thriving business near his western Pennsylvania hometown, a carefully scripted setting designed to showcase his focus on the working class.

The former senator was the Republican runner-up in the 2012 presidential primaries and beat out nominee Mitt Romney in the Iowa caucuses. He also won 11 state races during the primaries.

But Santorum faces a steep challenge this cycle in carving out a political niche for himself – as one of several social conservatives in contention.

As of Wednesday, the RealClearPolitics average of polls showed him ranked 10th, behind such social conservatives as former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Ben Carson, both declared candidates.

Santorum has sought to redo his image for the 2016 race but I'm not sure that will help him. Santorum is an interesting candidate because he can connect with average Americans and workers. However, this election seems to favor the new faces rather than those of the past.

Still, Santorum for me is someone to watch as he could pick up momentum with voters.
