While Nobama talked down America during his widely televised reading off the teleprompters, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal was talking up America, much to the chagrin of leftists everywhere who are aching for soup lines. Jindal has a faith in American entrepreneurship and was truly Reaganesque, whereas Obama was fear-mongering doom and gloom.
The opening of Jindal's speech: "We Believe Americans Can Do Anything."
That says it all. Here's a small transcript:
"A few weeks ago, the President warned that our nation is facing a crisis that he said ‘we may not be able to reverse.’ Our troubles are real, to be sure. But don’t let anyone tell you that we cannot recover — or that America’s best days are behind her.
This is the nation that cast off the scourge of slavery, overcame the Great Depression, prevailed in two World Wars, won the struggle for civil rights, defeated the Soviet menace, and responded with determined courage to the attacks of September 11, 2001.
The American spirit has triumphed over almost every form of adversity known to man — and the American spirit will triumph again.
We can have confidence in our future — because, amid today’s challenges, we also count many blessings: We have the most innovative citizens –the most abundant resources — the most resilient economy — the most powerful military — and the freest political system in the history of the world.
My fellow citizens, never forget: We are Americans. And like my Dad said years ago, Americans can do anything."

No doubt the liberals are going to be going after Jindal with both barrels after his rebuttal address to The People. This man, if he puts his mind to it, and we can get some of the "independent" voters off the Obama Kool-Aid, has a very good chance of going after The Moonbat Messiah in 2012.
