Regarding Gov. Bobby Jindal’s Common Core stance: “He was for it before he was against it”: I have heard this a lot lately about the I’m-smarter-than-you governor of this once-great state of Louisiana. This seems to be a pattern for Jindal(and most, not all Republicans). I have a simple solution for this downward spiral. Have Obama (or any other Democrat) voice opposition to all good common-sense ideas. Jindal will realize Obama is against this or that idea, and he will force these now accepted ideas on the Louisiana public. Enough said, problem solved!
