Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal (R-LA) is stepping out and taking a chance that he might stir up some controversy for himself.

The much ballyhooed April jobs number is out, and it once again it shows how well the Obama economic recovery is going. It’s been almost 7 years. Shouldn’t we have recovered by now? Heck, in Reagan’s seventh year, we were running like a well-oiled machine, but I digress. Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge had an interesting …
