Conservative Louisiana Governor and GOP presidential candidate Bobby Jindal did something dangerous (or perhaps it was a last ditch effort to get back in the Presidential conversation?) on Thursday morning… he went head on at Donald Trump.
Governor Jindal gave a speech before the National Press Club where he laid out in intricate detail the argument against choosing Trump as the GOP nominee for President and he asked Trump supporters across the country to back a new candidate. While many Trump supporters will now turn their collective angst on Jindal, one has to wonder if there is any substance to what he says.
Before you decide one way or the other, listen to what Jindal has to say and then make your decision.

The real danger is that, ironically, Donald Trump could destroy America’s chance to be Great Again.
As conservatives, we have a golden opportunity in front of us. The Democrats have terribly screwed things up, and are basically giving us the next election.
If we blow this opportunity – we may never get it again, the stakes are incredibly high.
Donald Trump is not a serious person. It’s all a solo act, it’s all just a show, and the joke is on us. He’s laughing all the way to the bank, or to the polling location. P.T. Barnum was never more right.
You may have recently seen that after Trump said the Bible is his favorite book, he couldn’t name a single Bible verse or passage that meant something to him. And we all know why, because it’s all just a show, and he hasn’t ever read the Bible. But you know why he hasn’t read the Bible? Because he’s not in it.
The Democrats have practically gift wrapped this election for us. It’s as if they know they’ve run the country into the ground, and they are running their worst possible candidate who is running the worst possible campaign.
Nominating Donald Trump is a certain way for us to miss our opportunity to make America Great Again.
Summer is over, it’s time to get serious about saving our country. It’s time to send Donald Trump back to reality TV – it’s time to tell Donald Trump – it’s been great, you’ve been great for ratings, you are almost as fun as Don Rickles, the show has been a blast.
We do in fact need to make America Great Again. We do in fact need to fire everybody in Washington. We do in fact need to get rid of political correctness. That is all true. And we can make America Great again. But we will not do that by putting an unserious and unstable narcissist in the White House.
Our country is worth saving, and this is our time to save it.
The conservative cause deserves more than a power-hungry shark who eats whatever is in front of him…because sooner or later, we will be his next meal.
This is our moment, this is our time. We can win right now, or we can be the biggest fools of all time and put our faith not in our principles, but in one egomaniacal madman who has no principles.
If we nominate him, he will self-destruct in a massive way in a general election. He may be Hillary Clinton’s only hope.
Even worse, if you are a conservative, it wouldn’t matter if he won. He believes in nothing, we have no idea what he would do.
It’s time to get serious about making America Great Again, so it’s time for Donald Trump to take the ride down his own elevator – It’s time to tell Donald Trump – no, we will not put an egomaniacal unserious person in the White House — “you’re fired”.
We have to put a committed conservative in the White House who will make our country great again and will ignore the professional political class in Washington.
Donald Trump’s campaign is not about making America Great Again, it is about making Donald Trump Great.
Obviously I think I am the right man for the job, but the voters will make that decision. America is ready for a politically incorrect conservative revolution.
