Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana, Criticizes Own GOP Party

The governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal, criticized his own party following the surprising defeat of the GOP in the 2012 elections. He told the Republican party to stop “dumbed-down conservatism” by ending “offensive, bizarre” comments.

“It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments — enough of that,” Jindal said in an interview with Politico. “It’s not going to be the last time anyone says something stupid within our party, but it can’t be tolerated within our party. We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”

He went on to tell Politico that his party has to “stop being the stupid party” and that they can accomplish this by embracing larger groups of constituents instead of turning into the party of “big anything.”

Jindal criticized the GOP for being “the party that simply protects the rich” and went after Mitt Romney for his “47 percent” comments. He said that the GOP needs to be much more inclusive from here on out.

“The Republican Party is going to fight for every single vote,” he said. “That means the 47 percent and the 53 percent, that means any other combination of numbers going up to 100 percent.”
