When many people think about the curse of State of the Union responses, they think of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal’s 2009 official GOP televised response to President Obama’s address to a joint session of Congress. That response, which you can watch below if you’re really in the mood, was received poorly. Like, really poorly.
But even after that, Jindal, who is eyeing a potential 2016 presidential run, isn’t easing up on State of the Union commentary. And it’s still not going particularly well.
It’s never the greatest when, in bashing your political opponent for being predictably simple and one-note, you make the easiest of grammatical errors. It’s a tweet, and even though it’s one that’s already getting a lot of attention, it’ll almost definitely be forgotten by the end of the week. But it just adds to the legend that is Bobby Jindal’s poor State of the Union luck.
