SECOND CHANCES

Jindal: Let’s Move Past 2008

The early reviews are in—and it looks like Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal did better against Obama the second time around. (You may recall his disastrous rebuttal to the president’s address to Congress and the ensuing Mister Rogers jokes.) On Tuesday night Jindal got an opportunity for redemption, addressing a House GOP fundraiser in Washington before Obama’s press conference. “Let’s agree on this tonight, the time for talking about the past is now over,” Jindal told the 1,200 attendees at the $2,500-a-plate event, which raised $6 million. “It has been healthy for Republicans to look in the mirror. It has been healthy for us to realize and admit the mistakes of the past…It’s time to declare our time of introspection and navel gazing officially over.”
