Arrivederci: Jindal takes vacation after panned speech
After giving one of the biggest speeches in his time as a politician, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal headed with his family to Disney World to take a vacation.
Jindal's office told AP the governor and his family left for the Orlando vacation resort Wednesday.
The vacation comes one day after Jindal gave his first televised speech to the nation, offering the Republican Party's response to President Barack Obama's address to Congress.
In the speech, Jindal talked of the need to cut taxes and to lessen dependence on government intervention, and he criticized the federal stimulus package as irresponsible.
While Jindal leaves for vacation, a group of local Democratic legislators planned to blast the governor's opposition to the stimulus, saying Jindal is using the stimulus to further his own political career.
