Very clumsy and over-rated figure. Worst president in American history, next to GW Bush.

Jindal and Walker couldn’t carry their own states next year. Worse than Paul Ryan and his 20 point loss in his home state.

Jindal, although dumb, is a different kind of dumb. If he doesn’t see the racism of the GOP he has a serious reality block. Now, Walker is dumb like Reagan in that he doesn’t know anything except the act. Reagan was an actor and he had many people absolutely fooled (the original TV generation was the old Reagan constituency). Unfortunately Walker is not that good of an actor and the stupid will become apparent when he can’t get someone to feed him the answer. In a debate he will be exposed.

Reagan led an amazing tax reform. He lowered taxes across the board and reduced the number of tax brackets. It’s been the only true simplification of the tax code in my lifetime. He believed in a smaller federal government, unlike the majority of politicians these days.
His policies created an environment of entrepreneurship that led to decades of technological advancement and growth.
Governors do make better presidents, although there are always exceptions (Carter)

However about the worst choice in my view is another politician of any stripe. Americans need a system that will allow the people to select their candidates, not a bunch of party cheerleaders or failed minds. We also need a neither entry on the ballot. To keep mediocity from being constantly reelected. Sorta like a democracy.
