The Big Three in the GOP

Republican 2012 Presidential contenders with their hands out

Interesting take on Jindal. Jindal in my opinion has some problems not only with promoting the stimulus bill, but there are other issues that are in his closet that will hurt him.

Here is a story on Palin, Sanford and Perry on the stimulus package

He said Republican Govs. Rick Perry of Texas, Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Sarah Palin of Alaska, led a spirited debate about the pitfalls of adding to the $10.7-trillion federal debt. They warned that the U.S. economy could collapse.

"That's a very salient point that we have to consider," Paterson said. "But for the short term, a stimulus package that puts people to work, brings money into the economy ... is probably the best approach."

And who is Palin endorsing in the gubernatorial race between Kay Bailey Hutchinson and Perry?

AUSTIN – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has endorsed Rick Perry for re-election, calling him the "true conservative" in a primary election showdown with fellow Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison.

Palin, who electrified the GOP base as the party's vice presidential nominee last year, has strong support among the party's social conservatives. Her endorsement appeared aimed at undercutting Hutchison's appeal with GOP women. Both groups will be important in picking the party's nominee in next year's Republican primary.

In a letter to "Texas Republican women" distributed by the Perry campaign, Palin touts the Texas governor's conservative credentials.

"He walks the walk of a true conservative. And he sticks by his guns – and you know how I feel about guns," she said.

Palin cited one of the Perry campaign's top issues – opposition to federal financial bailouts. And she singled out Perry's opposition to abortion rights.
