I did watch Bobby Jindal´s response. I agreed with his discourse. The problems I saw was that he had a five o´clock shadow, he should´ve shaved before going before the cameras, and his delivery. Whoever planned the event is to be blamed. His response was given from the Governor´s Mansion and he didn´t have a live audience which energizes a speaker. I remember when Chrsitie Todd Whitman gave her response to Bill Clinton´s address, she spoke from the Capitol in Trenton and she had a live audience, probably some Republican legislators. If memory serves me correctly she earned positive reviews from the commentators.
