Jindal: Only reason to turn down Keystone is 'purely ideological'
By JENNIFER EPSTEIN |
2/2/14 9:41 AM EST

The approval of the Keystone XL pipeline should be a "no brainer" for President Barack Obama, Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.) said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

There's "absolutely not" any reason to turn down the request for a permit for the project "unless it's purely ideological reasons," Jindal said.

"This is a no-brainer," he said, and the decision "should have been made a long time ago."

The governor of an energy-rich state, Jindal said that "cheap, affordable domestic energy is an absolutely crititcal component" to attracting investment in manufacturing on U.S. soil. If the United States doesn't work with Canada, he added, China will.



 

Jindal: Christie should stay RGA chairman
By JENNIFER EPSTEIN |
2/2/14 9:30 AM EST

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal voiced his support Sunday for embattled fellow Republican Gov. Chris Christie, saying the New Jerseyan should continue leading the Republican Governors Association.

"I don't think he should step down, I think he should stay there," Jindal said of Christie on CNN's "State of the Union."

In the RGA, "no one governor's more important than the other," Jindal said, diminishing the leadership role that Christie plays as well as his own position of vice chair. "What really matters is the RGA is a place where our governors come together."

Paul Ryan 'confident' in Christie
By JENNIFER EPSTEIN |
2/2/14 10:07 AM EST

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan supports Chris Christie and is giving him the benefit of the doubt amid conflicting accounts of what the New Jersey governor knew about lane closures at the George Washington Bridge.

Asked whether Christie can continue to be one of the most visible faces of the GOP as chairman of Republican Governors Association, the former Republican vice presidential candidate said he is "confident" in Christie. "I consider Chris Christie a friend. I think he's been a fantastic governor."

"Right now, all we know is one person's word against another. You can't base any conclusion on such a thing," Ryan added. "And so unless something else is known or made clear, I don't see why you would change what's going on right now. I don't think he should step down because nothing has been proven, and you always give a person the benefit of the doubt in those kind of situations, in my judgment."

Ryan won't commit to immigration action this year
By JENNIFER EPSTEIN |
2/2/14 10:27 AM EST

Rep. Paul Ryan sees a need for Congress to act to improve border security, but is uncertain about whether a broader immigration bill will reach President Barack Obama's desk by the end of the year.

"Doing nothing on the security side of this, we think, is not a responsible thing to do," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview aired Sunday on ABC's "This Week," responding to commentator Bill Kristol's suggestion that the GOP focus on attacking Obamacare -- and not on immigration -- to win congressional races this fall.

"We don't think that we can allow this border to continue to be overrun," Ryan added, as he summed up House Republicans' new principles for immigration reform. "If we can get security first, no amnesty before anything happens, that's a good approach. This is not a trust and verify, this is a verify and trust approach."

But while Obama wants to see Congress take action this year -- just as he did last year -- Ryan wouldn't commit to a timeline. Asked if the president would get a bill to sign this year, the House Budget Committee chairman responded: "I really don't know the answer to that question. That's clearly in doubt"

McDonough pushes back against 'shrinking presidency'
By HADAS GOLD |
2/2/14 10:25 AM EST

White House chief of staff Denis McDonough pushed back on Sunday against the notion that President Barack Obama's agenda for 2014 is smaller and less ambitious than in the past.

"If you think about the things that he laid out on the table this week, $10.10 an hour minimum wage, that's not going to be small for the hundreds of thousands of people who benefit from that," McDonough said on NBC's "Meet the Press." "When you think about long-term unemployment, the president bringing in 300 of the country's biggest employers to say to them, 'Hey, let's resolve this issue that's really dogging our economy.' and when those guys get a fair shot at a job and, in fact, a new job at some point, that's not going to be small to them."

Host David Gregory noted that in previous years the president had big ambitions on issues like climate change and gun control and asked if after a tough year Obama is conceding he should be less ambitious.

"I concede that the president doesn't spend a lot of time looking at Washington," McDonough said. "What the president does is spend a lot of time looking at what families across the country want.  They want clear, discernible, concrete actions that he can take so that he can move this thing forward, not wait for Congress, which you've said many times on this show ... is a Congress that, frankly, has just not lived up to its past experience and, in fact, one that's been quite slow."

Giuliani: 'Something very unfair' being done to Christie
By JENNIFER EPSTEIN |
2/2/14 10:58 AM EST

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is in a "really bad situation" if it turns out he's lied about Bridgegate - but if he's not lying, "something very unfair is being done to him," former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Sunday.

"I would say put this in context. This is a long investigation, it's going to take a while. There's going to be stuff like this that just jumps out and everybody's going to exaggerate," Giuliani said on CBS's "Face the Nation. "The governor has denied it. So far, there's no evidence to suggest that he's not telling the truth. I think the governor knows the consequences."

"If he's lying, it's a really bad situation. If he's not lying, then something very unfair is being done to him. So let's see what happens," Giuliani said.

"If the governor didn't tell the truth, the governor is in serious trouble," Giuliani went on. "We shouldn't jump to that conclusion until there's evidence to suggest that."

And, like many other national Republicans who have spoken out on Christie's troubles, Giuliani believes the governor should keep his position leading the Republican Governors Association. "If I were a governor, I would vote to keep him there," he said.

Giuliani also sees clear bias coming from the media and Democrats. "I think there's a real incident that was unfortunate and bad, and the governor apologized for that. I don't want to minimize that," Giuliani said. "But what I'm saying is you take that incident and now you've got pile-on," particularly from Assemblyman John Wisniewski, who is leading the investigation of Christie and has flirted with running for governor.

Scott: Diversity of ideas good for GOP
By HADAS GOLD |
2/2/14 11:09 AM EST

In his first appearance on a Sunday news show as a senator, Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) said that the variety of opinions in the Republican party are a good thing.

Scott said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that the many Republican responses to the president's State of the Union this week shows that many people in the GOP can voice their concerns. After the address on Tuesday, there was the official response by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) and in Spanish by Rep. Illeana Ross-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), as well as highly publicized responses by Sens. Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Rand Paul (R-Ky.)

" So often, people look at the Republican Party and say that we're a monolith party, that we don't have multiple voices with different perspectives on the issues.  The fact of the matter is what you saw after the State of the Union is that there are many people in our party that are able to voice their concerns," Scott said.

Host David Gregory noted that Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said this week that he thinks the Republican party should stop being the party of opposition, and should be a party of ideas. 

Scott said that the Republican party "continues to grow because we like disparity, we like the diversity of ideas" and that it helps the GOP "to build the best party for the future."

"So at the end of the day, what America needs is a party that is as diverse as the Republican Party," Scott said. "That is why the great opportunities for our future comes out of the GOP."

Scott is correct. Some so-called conservatives like to hold up the Democrats being lemmings as an example of what is wrong with the GOP because we actually fight out our varying ideas in the GOP as if that is a bad thing to think for yourself instead of group-think like the Democrats do.
