(Politico)   For the second day in a row, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is the lone voice of reason in the modern GOP. This time around, he schools Romney on his sore loserman "gifts" speech. Note: only 1,167 days until the 2016 New Hampshire Primary   (politico.com ) divider line

Stop being divisive, and make a better case for your own ideas?

This guy's toast.

We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent.

ha!

Who is this moderate Jindal that some news sites seem to talk about? Because the one I know is rejecting federal funding for Medicare expansion, is a huge religious conservative, and at the governors meeting has openly stated that there is nothing wrong with the GOP's platform, but that they failed in their "message". In other words, he thinks nothing is wrong and the GOP just isn't good enough at convincing people that being bigots is totally cool, or that they just failed to get enough of the people they hold in open contempt to vote for them.

Jindal is only sane and moderate if you are comparing him to Michele Bachman.

Jindal is just mad because Romney called him out on his minority mooching. I bet Jindal secretly voted for Obama because muslims stick together and they both want free stuff.

Look, when Bobby Jindahl is saying that your stupidity is making him look bad, perhaps you might want to re-examine your positions.

I'm sure all those Republicans who wouldn't vote for a Mormon would have no problem voting for a guy with Piyush as a middlle name.

Bachman not even really being fringe anymore may have something to do with Jindal being considered a moderate.

While I do love it when a politician makes an abrupt turn to better position to advance their own careers... this starts to paint Jindal with the same brush that Mittens has been using for a while.

Still doesn't change the fact that Jindal still advocates the same fiscal and social policy as Romney. He just knows not to crap on the 47 percent outloud.

When someone in the GOP agrees that taxes need to be raised on the 1% then I'll give a damn.

I'll be much more impressed when a republican says that Romney lost because he was acting like a 2 faced piece of shiat.

Otherwise it's just the same parade of lies continuing onward.

Romney had a very clear vision. His vision was he was going to be elected, the republicans were going to win huge majorities in the house and senate, and then he could play king, with congress rubber stamping any legislation he wanted, and crushing any he didn't.

I have seen no evidence that the republicans want to do anything else but this still. They just want everyone to support them in their efforts through, what do you know, more lies.

Huckabee agrees with that, but he also want's to require that all politicians be Evangelical Christians and supports constitutional amendments to force Christianity to be the only religion worshiped in this country

Precisely. Jindal will still be giving the same 47% speech Mitt did to the big money donors behind closed doors.

Piyush is his given name. Bobby is an affectation, a stage name.

And Bobby Jindal is only sane in the sense that exorcists have a solid grasp of reality.

Keep calling your fellow party members on their derp guys; we can forgive you for your past transgressions if you keep this trend of being classy as fark. Don't cave to pressure , i'm a liberal (not always a Democrat) and i think these 2 guys need to inspire / shame their fellow Republicans in to wanting to do better.

Sounds like Jindal is hoping for the GOP to become a moderate party. It's a little late for that:

TEA-rell: The facts of life... to make a radical alteration in the evolvement of an American political party is fatal. A coding sequence cannot be revised once it's been established.
Mitt Batty: Why not?
TEA-rell: Because by the second mid-term of incubation, any cells that have undergone TEA Party reversion mutation give rise to revertant colonies, like rats leaving a sinking ship; then the ship... sinks.
Mitt Batty: What about EMS-3 Moderate recombination?
TEA-rell: We've already tried it - Huntsman, Collins, Snowe, Lugar......; it created a virus so lethal the subject was dead before it even left the table.
Mitt Batty: Then a RINO repressor protein that would block the operating cells.
TEA-rell: Wouldn't obstruct replication; but it does give rise to an error in replication, so that the newly formed DNA strand carries with it a TEA Party mutation - and you've got a virus again... but this, all of this is academic. You were made as well as we could make you.
Mitt Batty: But not to last.
TEA-rell: The light that burns twice as bright burns for half as long - and you have burned so very, very brightly, Mitt. Look at you: you're the Prodigal Son; you're quite a prize!
Mitt Batty: I've done... questionable things at Bain Capital.
TEA-rell: Also extraordinary things; revel in your time.
Mitt Batty: Nothing the God of Politics wouldn't let you into heaven for.
 
2012-11-15 10:47:36 AM  
Bobby and Mittens have one thing in common as "modern" republicans.

Mittsy agrees with his old man, another Repuclican moderate named George Romney, that creationism must be right because George's bride (Mitsy's mommie) was "too beautiful" to have been descended from an orangotan (sp.?)

Bobby wants creationism taught in Louisiana schools (probably because hindus believe in the evolution of souls from cows and such to humans and so on), so that's a good idea for "modern republicans" which all true amerikans can believe in, and will capture all but the orangatan vote in 2016..
