Governor Jindal On Why He Is Rejecting The Stimulus Dollars And His Address After The President’s Speech To Congress

Tuesday, March 17, 2009  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

The transcript of my conversation with Governor Jindal this afternoon is here. The podcast is here. One of many interesting excerpts:

HH: Now Governor Jindal, the state senator you mentioned, Eric LaFleur, now wants to encourage the state legislature to pass what the stimulus bill provided, which is an overriding resolution. Now my colleague at Chapman Law School, Ronald Rotunda, wrote a piece in the Chicago Tribune this week saying that’s just patently unconstitutional. Forget the economics of this, and I agree with your argument about permanent state obligations for temporary federal aid, the idea that they can amend the state constitution to allow a workaround of the governor is astonishing to me.

BJ: Well, I don’t know that there are a whole lot of people in Washington that have read the 10th Amendment to the Constitution. I’m not sure they really realize what’s there.

Read the whole thing, including the governor’s comments on the criticism following his remarks after President Obama’s address to the Congress.

My studio is on the way from Costa Mesa to Burbank, and the president is welcome to drop by and tape an interview for the talk radio audience.

Israel and Iran

From Haaretz:

Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Gabi Ashkenazi on Monday said that while Israel was interested in exhausting diplomatic options against Iran’s nuclear program, the army must nevertheless prepare itself for a military attack.

The after-effects of such an attack are enormous, but the coverage of this looming confrontation is almost non-existent in the MSM.
