Governor Jindal Sets Mittens Straight...

More fresh air and clear headed thinking from Governor Jindal. What America needs at this divisive time in its history are a lot more politicians and officials like him. Whether they are republican, libertarian, green, or democract really doesn't matter. It is his sensible, realistic, and rational views that matter. It is time the republican party (socon, neocon, and Romney wing) gets on board with the Governor's views or close shop. For good.

LAS VEGAS — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal forcefully rejected Mitt Romney’s claim that he lost because of President Barack Obama’s “gifts” to minorities and young voters.

Asked about the failed GOP nominee’s reported comments on a conference call with donors earlier Wednesday, the incoming chairman of the Republican Governors Association became visibly agitated.

“No, I think that’s absolutely wrong,” he said at a press conference that opened the RGA’s post-election meeting here. “Two points on that: One, we have got to stop dividing the American voters. We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent. We need to go after every single vote.

“And, secondly, we need to continue to show how our policies help every voter out there achieve the American Dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children an opportunity to be able to get a great education. … So, I absolutely reject that notion, that description. I think that’s absolutely wrong.”

He reiterated the points for emphasis.

“I don’t think that represents where we are as a party and where we’re going as a party,” he said. “That has got to be one of the most fundamental takeaways from this election: If we’re going to continue to be a competitive party and win elections on the national stage and continue to fight for our conservative principles, we need two messages to get out loudly and clearly: One, we are fighting for 100 percent of the votes, and secondly, our policies benefit every American who wants to pursue the American dream. Period. No exceptions.” {Read More}

  1. I hate to say it but Romney did have a point (constituency politics, FDR style). It was just far too early to say it and he said it poorly.

  2. Yeah, the moochers are the third rail of American politics now. Can't touch it.
