Bobby Jindal: GOP needs to 'stop being the stupid party'

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal warned fellow Republicans they "must stop being the stupid party" during a fiery and sharp critique Thursday night at the Republican National Committee's Winter Meeting.

As top Republicans gather in Charlotte on Friday, many have focused on how to best reboot the party in the face of a 2012 election cycle that saw Democrats retain the White House and gain seats in both chambers of Congress.

For Jindal, a popular rising star in the party who is thought to be an early contender for the 2016 presidential nomination, that recalibration involves Republicans learning to "stop insulting the intelligence of voters.”
In the address, Jindal outlined at least seven steps that he believes Republicans need to take in order to remain competitive. In a scathing takedown, he accuses the party of "looking backwards" and having an obsession with "identity politics."

"We must reject the notion that demography is destiny, the pathetic and simplistic notion that skin pigmentation dictates voter behavior," Jindal said.

Jindal also said that the GOP must work to reframe its messaging on restricting the size of government.

"We must not become the party of austerity. We must become the party of growth," Jindal said.

He went on to take some not-so-subtle swipes at former Republican nominee Mitt Romney, insisting Republicans "must compete for every single vote — the 47 percent and the 53 percent." He also told RNC Chairman Reince Priebus that he hoped he was not relying on Romney's ORCA voter information system during his reelection bid at the meeting Friday.

But among Jindal's most provocative suggestions was the demand that the GOP needed to "stop insulting the intelligence of voters" — and display more intelligence themselves. Jindal's comments seemed targeted squarely at conservative candidates in Senate races whose comments on rape and abortion appeared to submarine their electoral chances.

"We had a number of Republicans damage the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments," Jindal said.

The Louisiana governor also warned that Republicans were too associated with "big business, big banks, big Wall Street bailouts, big corporate loopholes."

"We must not be the party that simply protects the well off so they can keep their toys," Jindal said. "We have to be the party that shows all Americans how they can thrive."


Jindal, who was elected last year to chair the Republican Governor's Association, has been among the party's most vocal critics in the aftermath of last year's election, and likely looks to position the governor as a forward-thinking voice as speculation begins to ramp up about 2016.
But his keynote address also served to underscore the theme of the entire Republican retreat, which has been singularly focused on rebooting the GOP brand.

According to excerpts of a speech to be given Friday, Priebus will call on the party to compete in every state across the country and invest in a new technological push. The RNC Chairman has also appointed a new committee to solicit grassroots feedback on a path forward for the party.

Republicans face a steep road to recovery. In a NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released last week, 49 percent of respondents said they had an unfavorable
view of the party — the highest figure since 2008.

Moreover, President Obama's campaign infrastructure was thought to be technologically and structurally superior on Election Day. Last weekend, Democrats announced plans to keep that organization in place with the creation of a legacy nonprofit group to be led by the president's former campaign manager, Jim Messina.

But Priebus is optimistic that the GOP will bounce back.

"The good news is our principles are sound. We stand for opportunity and for liberty. Freedom is always a new idea — an ever-fresh, revolutionary idea," he plans to say.

Hispanics are usually Catholic. The GOP's social issues are in their camp. But they also like welfare spending and that doesn't endear them to GOP issues. I do think the left's hold over education and laxness on illegal immigration has helped them. So the left has no right to cry about gerrymandering.

Your thought process is just plain strange. None of the sentences prior to the last has anything to do with the "conclusion" set forth in your last sentence, whether or not true.

I see more conservatives on twitter trending toward this language. "Pro-Life. Pro-Gay" was one little bumper sticker type thing I saw recently.

My favorite story about Bobby Jindal:

He wrote an article about witnessing an exorcism. The title of the article is Physical Dimensions of Spiritual Warfare. http://www.newoxfordreview.org/artic...id=1294-jindal

In fairness, he wrote the article years ago, and his views may have changed.

But, it is hard to take a man seriously on the subject of intellectualism, when he talks about compelling Satan to leave a girl's body.

Aside from Amno's criticism, why do you act like you know something about Hispanics?

Yes, many of them are socially conservative. Despite that and unlike other US conservatives, they don't think their way of life should be imposed on everyone.

Of course not, that is why we have bilingual signs everywhere and have to push a number for English. **** off seriously~

It's always more complicated than any generalization can cover when you are referring to a large group of people.

Bullshit this nation has been a melting pot from the start. There has been immigration from countries that do not speak English from the beginning. Only one region has provided a population of people who refuse to assimilate. They refuse to obey our immigration laws or learn our language. They quickly learn how to benefit from our country and that is their only interest~

Jindal is at times impressive, but sometimes he looks too much like the young Montgomery Burns and while that might help him get the GOP nomination, that could hurt him in the general election.

I disagree somewhat. 2nd and 3rd generation Hispanics primarily speak English and use that as their main language.

Please show me a comparable country or region where our country has had to accommodate on the level we have these people?

You are a dipshit. Like Dirk pointed out, Latino immigrants are one of the fastest assimilating immigrant populations. Asians are the fastest.


The rest of your post is exactly what Jindal is talking about though.

edit: You also have a very distorted view of our history and immigration (patterns, demographics, etc).
