Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is on the air.  Not his campaign, but a SuperPAC, called Believe Again, that supports Jindal’s presidential campaign made an ad buy of  $501,625. The ad (launched yesterday) will run for two weeks in the Des Moines, Sioux City and Cedar Rapids markets on broadcast and cable and in Mason City, Ottumwa, Quad Cities and Southwest Iowa on cable.

Believe Again’s first ad “All Americans” focuses on the idea of America’s historical “melting pot” being driven by the successful assimilation of every American into the fabric of our country.

“As a child of immigrants, Governor Jindal understands the true breadth of the American Dream,” Brad Todd, Believe Again advisor, said.

“Governor Jindal believes America should be a melting pot, where we all bring our strengths and adopt the nation’s values. He has spoken often of the need to get away from the concept of hyphenated Americans.  He believes we are all Americans.” Todd continued. “Governor Jindal also believes our immigration system today is broken and those who come to this country to follow the American Dream should do so legally, adopt our values, roll up their sleeves and get to work.

  1. Here’s my top-ten list of what we should expect from those who want to become Americans (and those who are already Americans, for that matter). The list was first published in a National Review Online column [link: http://www.nationalreview.com/article/378393/e-pluribus-unum-roger-clegg ], and it is fleshed out in Congressional testimony [link: http://www.aila.org/content/fileviewer.aspx?docid=23115&linkid=164788 ]:

    1. Don’t disparage anyone else’s race or ethnicity.
    2. Respect women.
    3. Learn to speak English.
    4. Be polite.
    5. Don’t break the law.
    6. Don’t have children out of wedlock.
    7. Don’t demand anything because of your race or ethnicity.
    8. Don’t view working and studying hard as “acting white.”
    9. Don’t hold historical grudges.
    10. Be proud of being an American.
