Bobby Jindal? President? Not! Reply


PLEASE RE-TWEET

This is a tough time of year for Democrats, because we have to stare down the most ludicrous characters in the GOP, and come to terms with the reality that any one of them could be elected president of the United States.

Here’s what we’re saying: Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is officially running for president, and Bobby Jindal could win.

Take a look at our Bobby Jindal primer:

  • He’s one of the least popular governors in the country: Under his failed leadership, nearly 1 in every 5 people in Louisiana lives in poverty.
  • He’s one of the architects of the scheme to turn Medicare into a voucher system.
  • He will say anything to please the Tea Party base, like denying climate science and championing extremists like the guy from Duck Dynasty.

But make no mistake, the fact that Bobby Jindal is a preposterous politician doesn’t mean he’ll take himself out of the race. We have to do that, and that starts with all of us getting the word out to voters.

“Top U.S. CEOs make 300 times what workers earn” Reply


CBS NEWS

How do you value the efforts of America’s top chief executives? Are they worth 10 times what their average worker makes, 20 times or even 100 times?

The current answer appears to be a ratio of more than 300-to-1, according to a new study from the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute. The meteoric rise of CEO pay is nothing short of breathtaking, outpacing not only the wages of ordinary workers, but also gains in the stock market and the not-too-shabby rise of income among America’s 0.1 percent of top earners.
