Well, we know Powell and Christie are Establishment which is BIG government. I didn't think Jindal was but perhaps he wants to run so he has to wash the feet of the Establishment. The Establishment does not want less govt, but more power, more hegemony and more empire. So I suspect, since they essentially are supported by the big guns of the media, this is an attempt to drive out the Tea Party types...this means they're concerned...because despite not hearing about it on big media it continues to grow.
