    On Hannity tonight, he gave the quote of the week:

    "Well, for that expensive Ivy League education, did it include economics 101?.....I don't think so!"

    All we'd have to do is look at Obama's college record to find out.
    Oh, wait.

    Notice how the Left has dropped the anti-Jindal stories now that he isn't running for president?

    Yeah I noticed. That happened shortly after he bombed the response to the SOTU.

    Not so coincidentally the calls for a Jindal White House run began fading fast right around that time too.

    Funny that.

    ECON 101 tells you basically nothing about real economics.

    Nice theory though.

    True. Econ 101 tells you that if you increase the cost of something, there will be less of it. Like if you increase the cost of hiring through mandates and taxes then there will be less of it. Totally not real world experience. Right?

    Econ 101 is based on the theory of Homo economicus, Rab.

    Now do you seriously believe that one can understand macro-economics based on understanding the theories taught in Econ 101?

    Our world does not work the way Econ 101 economic theories suggest it does.

    The unemployment rate in Louisiana has DOUBLED since Bobby Jindal was elected governor.

    He's in no position to school others on economics.
