    Republican modernizers desert Romney as GOP looks to the future

    Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal even went so far as to say the party had to stop being “the stupid party”.

    yourname2000 saidI watched it on CNN...it was actually the most eloquent and passionate I've ever seen Jindal....gave me hope for a renewed Republican party.




    How about a life long resident (me) of the state of Louisana's view point on this man:

    Bobby "Piyrush" Jindal is an empty suit, political party hack/shill who will do anything, say anything, to promote his goal of "Piryush for President". He sniffs the prevailing political wind and tailors his "message" to support the latest political poll. He is the Louisiana version of Mitt Romney.

    This "eloquent and passionate" man shilled himself shamelessly to be selected as Mitt's vice president and then flew across the country, making speeches in support of Romney, at Louisiana tax payer's expense, even though this fast talking, egotistical "legend in his own mind" toolbox didn't even make Romney's short lis for V-P.

    His support of his school voucher program, at the expense of the public school education budget, will come around to bite him on his ass. All kinda of looney, wacko, creationisn-based private schools are lining up for public tax payer money via Jindal's voucher program

    Jindal's refusal to accept federal Medicare money is putting many poor citizens of Louisana in a bad way. Partially becasue of his refusal to accept "Obamacare funds", and his use of "one time only" availabe money to support last year's budget, the state budget is in the financial hole for next year.

    Jindal made a huge political show of proclaiming that he would not allow the state of Louisana to not accept federal stimulus funds; then flew across the state making "photo oppertunities" handing out the stimulus money.

    Jindal has closed down the only mental health facility close to the city of New Orleans, the largest city in the state of Louisiana, the state that Jindal is supposed to be serving.

    He is determined to "privatize" every state-supported program he can and then sell it off to his political party financial supporters.

    Yourname, if YOU lived in the state of Louisiana, your approval and support of Piyrush would be somewhat....limited.


    2000, pls do more research on this man before you get on his bandwagon. He is nothing more than a poorer version of Willard "Flip Flop" Romney.

    He's aiming to get a head start for the 2016 presidential race.

    Some Republicans are now beginning to disengage themselves from the likes of O'Reilly, Limbaugh, Romney, et al. (the "Santa Claus" gang) out of political necessity. What we need, however, is not lip service. The Republicas can disagree publicly with Romney until they're blue in the face, but words alone won't do it. What we need is clear policy that articulates the Republicans' new mantra. In other words, they should put their money where their mouth is.

    Seriously? What did we just watch with Romney? The whole Republican party got behind a man that did this for 6 years as he ran for president.

    Harris-Perry: Jindal doesn’t ‘give a damn’ about Louisianans

    I happened to catch Melissa Harris-Perry's show yesterday and she was incredibly eloquent. Her "letter" to Jindal was very well thought out and reminded him that he is the Governor of Louisiana and he still has work to do there. I was very impressed by her passion.

    I'm from Louisiana and hoping Jindal runs for president. He's in for one hell of a shock when he gets the backlash from everyone, including Republicans, on how bad his governance is.

    Obviously, a majority of Louisiana voters think he's doing just fine.

    Republicans have realized -- too late -- that they cannot be the party of bigotry and ignorance and win elections. They have also decided not to change their policies, just attempt to change the perception of their positions.

    What to expect in the coming 2 years: new window dressing hastily thrown over anti-gay, anti-Latino and anti-women attitudes. Opportunists like Jindal are already trying to reinvent themselves by throwing Romney under the bus. Remember, these are the same people who just two weeks ago loudly claimed that Romney was a brilliant leader, ready to transform the US and solve all our problems. Now they're falling all over themselves to sever any ties between themselves and Romney, following his humiliating loss and bitter, embarrassing flame-out.

    The GOP is disintegrating, and it couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of douche bags. Should be an interesting couple of years to watch. icon_lol.gif

    Jindal is the ethnic version of Romney.. Insincere and devoid of personality. He's like those really boring guys you see in corporate training videos.

    Romney was just a disaster... his comments on the way out just reinforce the "rotton core" of the GOP. Jindal's comments do make sense, but his has his own agenda for making them.

    You said it.... and if Obama had lost the Democrats in congress would have distanced themselves as far from his ideologies as they could possibly get away with and the Republicans would be trashing them at every opportunity as they relentlessly remind America who sided with Obama and how often. Look at how Al Gore tried to distance himself from Bill Clinton after the "impeachment". Yet ironically, most of us would have voted for Bill in 2000 if we could have.
