I was not impressed with the speech. It was a great feel good speech but he covered no new ground. Everything he said has been said. If I may extend the "roadmap" analogy, this speech was no such thing. It was a recantation of someone else's dream vacation, so to speak. All nice.
I have no need to hear what I already know. It is late in the game. If Jindal or anybody else in the Republican party wants to lead it, they had better plant some battle flags on hills to die on. The rhetoric of the past, while agreeable, will convince me that nothing will change. Change will come when the tone, detail and direction of the rhetoric changes. Not unitl then do I support another well spoken R for office.
