BRIT HUME: It read better than it sounded… this was not Bobby Jindal’s greatest rhetorical moment.
NINA EASTON: The delivery was not terrific.
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Jindal didn’t have a chance.
JUAN WILLIAMS: Childish.
Gateway Pundit on Jindal:
The reaction that most resonated most with me came from Andrew Sullivan.
Video below the fold:
As I watched Jindal, I couldn't get my mind off Kenneth. To echo the sentiments expressed on Fox News, it was not a shining moment for Jindal. I've seen him look better.
Gateway Pundit was also impressed by Jindal's Amercians can do anything theme. My reaction to that is nicely summed up by one of Sullivan's readers:
And I agree with Sullivan:
Yes, the innovative ideas that served as an antidote to the calcified liberalism of the 1970s have themselves become the brittle dogma of today's political discourse. Something that only just occurred to me is that many adherents of calcified liberalism switched political sides only when conservatism became a calcified dogma. Is that mere coincidence?
