Dudes and dudettes…this will be right to the point. Most of us know by now that Gov. Bobby Jindal has been thrown in the mix of possible upcoming presidential picks for the 2016 elections. So friends, just for the heck of it, I was very curious to see what your thoughts are about him from those of you across this land.

To cut to the chase…here’s a speech he gave just yesterday. See what you think of what he said. – This is via Mediaite:

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal hasn’t been shy about criticizing his own party in the wake of the presidential election. On Thursday, hammered home his message during the keynote speech at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting: “We must stop being the stupid party.”

“America is not the federal government,” Jindal asserted, arguing that Republicans must realize that number-crunching is not everything. “We must not become the party of austerity. We must become the party of growth. Of course we know that government is out of control. The public knows that too. And yet we just lost an election.”

As he has in the past, Jindal also took a not-so-veiled jab at Mitt Romney, saying the GOP must compete for every vote — “the 47 percent and the 53 percent.” Along the same lines, making a widely-echoed criticism, Jindal also pointed to the need to address demographics. Enough with the nostalgia, and let’s look to the future.

Jindal was particularly blunt in reiterating that the GOP must stop being “stupid” and “stop insulting the intelligence of voters.” The party needs to “stop reducing everything to mindless slogans and tag lines for 30-second ads” and start explaining detailed views, he advised.

“We are not the party of big business, big banks, big Wall Street bailouts, big corporate loopholes, or big anything,” he asserted. “We are a populist party and need to make that clear.”

“No, the Republican Party does not need to change our principles,” Jindal said — “but we might need to change just about everything else we do.”

If any of these quotes sound familiar, it’s because Jindal’s been on quite a roll with the political introspection (which surely has nothing to do with any potential presidential/national aspirations). In the past few months, he’s criticized Romney’s “gifts” remark as well as offered his party some advice.

Watch the speech below:

  1. He reminds me of Christy. He needs to stay where he is. He is NOT Presidential Timber.

      I wished I could recall what Jindal said a few times awhile back now that really got under my skin. I remember being totally disappointed…no doubt about it.

      Too tired tonight to recall, maybe it will come back to me tomorrow after I get a good night’s sleep…or something like that. 😉

      • BT, he’s not a natural born citizen, so I wouldn’t want him just because of that,.among other things!

        (0)
        • tazz…do you remember the other things that bothered you?

          Like michael said, he does remind me of Christie…they say things here and there over time that really gets under a conservatives skin that you don’t ever forget that you wouldn’t vote for them. It’s just tonight…I can’t recall the other things Jindal has said that really angered me. – Jindal not only reminds me of Christie in some ways, but he does Jeb Bush too. Know what I mean?

          (0)
      • Bigtimer, I believe the gist of what made Jindal somewhat controversial was that he said the GOP needed to change it’s compass. That Republicans needed to be more popular and get folks to like them. It doesn’t matter to me anyway, because I’m not a Republican. I think Rush spoke on this issue in that he thought Jindal was abandoning conservative principals by trying to get independents and moderates to like the GOP more.

        Rush is right, you cannot be a true conservative and give up core principles. It was the message I heard in the early 90’s that spoke to me. Before that I really didn’t pay much attention to politics.

          Right you are…I’m starting to recall some of the go along, get along BS he’s said in the past. From illegal immigration to reaching out to the blacks that will never vote for our side of the aisle no matter what. – Lord, I tire of that crap.

    BT, I’m thinking along your lines. I’ve had two hours of sleep in the last two days so I’m incapable of good recollection right now. But, something makes me distrust Jindal. He’s simply yet another RINO. Actually, the Republican Party, in my mind, is over.

      Heck…I was up ’til four in the morning with you last night…NOT DOING THAT TONIGHT….but that was fun in a weird way if ya know where I’m coming from.

  3. Right now….Rand Paul. Jim DeMint is out there, too. We need someone who leaves no doubt as to where they stand. No more McCains, no more Romneys. No more dilettantes and shit-stirrers. And for damn sure no more Bush’s. The Stupid Party had better get it right next time, because we’re running out of next times.

    (0)
    • Couldn’t agree more. DeMint is someone I’ve always wished would run, although for some reason I fear he never will…can’t say that I don’t blame him for that.

      What Rand’s been saying and doing lately really pleases this ol’ gal…so far. ~

  4. I like Rand Paul, I actually am comfortable with him. So far I have seen no BS, just straight black and white on most issues, well spoken and pleasant but tough. I don’t get the feeling I’m being bullish*ted. He doesn’t seem as unrealistic as his Father. He seems to have his Dads guts, I like that. Time will tell.

    • Same here…in every aspect you mentioned.

      What do all of you think of Rubio? He’s the one that’s really getting the biggest push of all for the next repub party presidential candidate.

      • Generally favorable, although his immigration reform ideas may need some clarification. We won’t get everything we want, but we have to start somewhere.

        • I don’t know…there’s something besides his immigration plan for the illegals that bothers me, but I can never put my finger on it.

          I’d sure as heck vote for him any day before I would a Christie type.

            This refers to the results of making flatuses while taking a bath.

    Bobby is dead on and is a master of the low information voter. After all he is from Louisiana and I should know. Bobby is also some of the brains behind converting La to a Blue State. He understands that the Republicans talk about policy and the Dems talk to the people. It’s why the Dems get to single women and Hispanics, two of the lowest information voter groups in history. I can’t think of anything dumber than a Blue State single woman.

  7. Winston Smithereens says:

    If one listens to Jindal’s remarks across-the-board in this, SPECIFICALLY this most recent delivery, what pragmatic and intelligent individual in their right mind would disagree? NeoCons and Republicans that’s who. And therein lies the problem and why the situation will never be adequately resolved because the GOP is beyond seized with dry rot from being co-opted by NeoCons starting with the NWO Bushites and EVERYONE in their camp. I repeat, EVERYONE in their camp. Do I need to remind so many of you of a good number of the resident NeoCon termites whom you eternally petition, champion which so, so many of you do………? I’ll be polite and refrain. By the way, where are the millions of Lance Armstrong minions who aided and abetted the ruthless lying fraud Armstrong by climbing aboard the Armstrong juggernaught and attacking, assassinating altogether clean and class act Greg LeMond for, heaven forbid, simply telling the truth – which they ALL very much did? Where are they now? For starters, conspicuously silent. But I digress………..

    In his specific delivery Jindal’s remarks could not be more true. Or cathatic. Which came to Jindal and now many an awakening (embarassed we much?) conservative gomer who for too long (most certainly since Reagan LEFT office) has allowed their franchise to be petitioned by the DOA GOP Republicans. And while not attempting to promote Jindal and yes, he can never run for the Executive Branch so relax, just relax……., perhaps Jindal’s remarks are for him finally nothing short of cathartic, at a minimun repressed anger as per the higher ups whom he has had to work with who in no small part are at every helm. After all, he is in the business of politics and that is all that politics is, in the end. It’s just a business. And it makes tons of money.

    Look at the voting record of those in Congress. This is the truth. Not what they say in their glamourized speech before or after their vote, that’s just window dressing. It’s their vote, their action, this is the real walk. And who is walking a straight line these days? Would someone tell me? Look no further than the most recent vote in the House regarding the so-called “fiscal cliff”. By the way, Obama won on that and it’s “conservatives” who control the House. Oh well……
    Many of you took the former representative and presidential candidate Ron Paul to endless task. Good, because he was clearly way off the mark, right? Right? Heaven forbid any of his positions (many of which Jindal parenthetically alluded to) would ever be considered as a platform for this nation’s public sector, thus-in-turn, “We the People”. Indeed, parish that. Better I guess that the righteous and strong armed NeoCon chugga-chugga-motion train keep rolling on because NeoCons so have it going on. After all, NeoCons are leading the nation, right? What, they’re not? How could that be?

    Hubris come before a fall.

    Tragically this nation or what goes for same today is predominantly a Third World cesspool with its leaders aplenty and in control. How long will this go on? Till the money that is being troweled out to them runs dry. After all, why do you think the Totalitarian government is working to disarm the citizenry be it by state or nationally? So they cannot fight perhaps? Who would ever think that?

    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever within its history. Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to, ‘Please Do Not Feed the Animals’. Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.

    It’s far beyond time that conservatives openly admitted just how woefully bad things are on their side starting with the DOA GOP and either took immediate steps to purge the liars, frauds, money changers and beyond ruinous baggage both within the party, as well Congress or more immediately started the near Sisophystic challenge of creating a new conservative party if that which is Libertarian still is impossible to digest (Reagan was principally a Libertarian, but why bring that up?). Either way, the Marxists ARE in power and their base is the majority of “Americans” in this “nation”. Jindal ‘reality check’ spoke to many truths like him or not.

  8. bluffcreek1967 says:

    Whites should be vary cautious in endorsing Bobby Jindal. He has denied the concept of ‘demographics is destiny’ in an effort to tone-down the reality that minorities are displacing white voters. He wants to ease any alarm whites might have that they are being racially dispossessed in their own country. Truth is, we ARE being racially displaced and taken over by third-world immigrants in the very land land our white forefathers built and made the envy of the world! We ought to be very, VERY concerned because our once great nation is changing in ways that are not good for whites. Our culture and way of life (the good stuff, not the petty, narcissistic stuff of modern-day liberals) is being replaced by a ghetto, thug and third-world culture that revels in mocking the white man.

    I harbor no ill will or harm to ‘minorities’. I am not out to replace the distinctives of their culture and people. I just wish they would afford whites the same respect and not try to do this to our culture and race. Unfortunately, we have too many whites in this country who are guilt-ridden and see nothing unique about their race and, thus, have no sense of racial self-preservation. It’s all so maddening!

    Finally, is it not clear by now that the Republican Party is lost? They do NOT have the interests of whites at heart (perhaps never did?) and they are ready to sell us out so they can remain in power and serve simply as a lighter version of the Marxist Democratic Party! Everyone needs to make their own decision, but I respectfully urge whites to start considering other political groups that are more sympathetic to whites and the US Constitution.

    With all of that said, I STILL sense this nation is doomed, that we have passed the point of ‘No Return.’ I don’t think things will be reversed – at least not anytime soon. I hope I will be proven wrong.

  13. sorry, bobby jindal lost me when after (for those of you old enough to remember it) hurricane katrinia, he whined and cried how Bush and FEMA weren’t doing enough to help fast enough for him. for crying out loud, he was the govenor and he couldn’t even remember he had to ASK for help before bush could send it…he forgot, as gov. he could activate the guard…he didn’t do anything constructive, as far as i could tell, except whine and cry for more milk from the federal teat….
    no thank you, i do not want to vote for yet another RINO “compassionate conservative”……i would rather remarry my ex wife.

    • Howdy xtron…

      You’ve got your facts wrong here. If memory serves me correct Jindal was not Gov. during Katrina. The ‘dumber than a rock’ Kathleen Blanco was….and I remember her BS stunts that she pulled too.

      Jindal didn’t become Gov. until ’07/08 time period.

      Just throwing that in.

      And by the way, that witch should have done a lot from days preceding Katrina until the end of her unfortunate reign. Her and Naggin were two peas in a pod. – Dumb and Dumber. – Both DEMOCRATS to-boot!

      (0)
    • Snake Oiler says:

      Eh? Katrina struck in late August of 2005. Kathleen Blanco, a Democrat, was governor at that time, and remained so until Jindal took over in January of 2008. That’s a gap of more than two years, and all I can remember happening in that time frame was Blanco’s and Ray Nagin’s bumbling and bitching. Can you elaborate more on what Jindal should have been doing?

They can trash white males with impunity (just imagine what they could do with a castrati like Jindal) They best not try it with a woman. Sarah comes to mind

          • I remember that after Reagan ran in 1972 he was so ostraciized and belittled but the ray of hope was when that communist bastid Norman “people for the American way” Lear had Archie Bunker admit he voted for Reagan and not trickie Dick. I knew right then and there the commonists was running scared. Does any of this sound vaguely familiar when you look at the vitriol spilled all over SP? Occams razor?

  18. Not really related to Bobby Jindal, but here’s a classic case of buyer’s remorse…

    Curl continues:

    The Twittersphere was even funnier.

    “Really, how am I ever supposed to pay off my student loans if my already small paycheck keeps getting smaller? Help a sister out, Obama,” wrote “Meet Virginia.” “Nancy Thongkham” was much more furious. “F***ing Obama! F*** you! This taking out more taxes s*** better f***ing help me out!! Very upset to see my paycheck less today!”

    How can you pay off loans with smaller paychecks, Virginia? Ask Nancy; she sounds like a real intellectual.

    Curl again:

    “_Alex™” sounded bummed. “Obama I did not vote for you so you can take away alot of money from my checks.” Christian Dixon seemed crestfallen. “I’m starting to regret voting for Obama.” But “Dave” got his dander up over the tax hike: “Obama is the biggest f***ing liar in the world. Why the f*** did I vote for him”?

    I could explain why, Dave — very clearly. But I don’t use the kind of language you do. So I’ll just say, my good man, that you’re what they now call a “low-information voter.” And you and your comrades have given us a low-information president.

  20. I really think that I will NOT be getting behind a Republican candidate this election. In fact, I’m thinking of changing my registration to Independent. And backing a third-party candidate. Like maybe a Libertarian. Like Rand Paul if he runs on that ticket. Republicanss today are just another brand of big-government and career politics. They have done nothing but sell us down the river, under the guise of “reaching across the aisle” and “being non-offensive.” And it just isn’t working out.

    Of course… if I am going to do this, then I guess first I need to apologize for comments I may have made to those who supported Ron Paul during the last election. I may have joined in on calling some of you guys “Paulbots” and saying that you were wasting your votes. I was wrong, and I’m sorry.
