Yeah, frick that guy. How dare he run our state with a surplus of over 100 million....

We need to be more like Barry Sotero and run up trillions of debt. That's how we solve a broke economy.

Both sides have mentally challenged supporters. The R's started running their's for office.

Who is this man and what has he done with Bob Jindal?


That's what I was thinking. Maybe this is the real Bobby Jingles.
The R's could make a killing if they simply painted themselves as the party of economic freedom and small business and got rid of all the "rape" crap.

Most of the reasonable people on this board like Jindal.

A lot of posters here have on blinders to where they see no reasonableness here at all, and like to thump their chests proclaiming such, however.

I understand 100% what he's saying. If you can't beat em, join em. He's saying the R's need to start pandering like the D's. Afraid it's too late though. I'd prefer the R's stick to their core values and beliefs rather than pander. That is what is freakin sad as hell - that it has come to this point where a leading R is saying "frick it, we gotta pander too".

Complicated is not necessarily the converse of "simplistic."

And, yes, I enjoyed playing

sim·plis·tic/sim'plistik/
Adjective:
Treating complex issues and problems as if they were much simpler than they really are: "simplistic solutions".


I take him to mean, addressing them realistically.

Jidal just realized the obvious that symbolism is more important than substance.

You can't be the one size fits all party anymore, you have to pander.

no, he's saying quit treating voters like idiots. Talking intelligently isn't pandering.

Republican policies can directly help the middle class, but the party cannot get that message out to save it's life right now.

Because the majority of the country doesn't pay attention.

ETA: Instead they respond to BS like "tax the rich", "fairness" and "fired up, ready to go!". We all realize this now, which is a completely sad and disappointing realization.

Pandering is pandering, and that is what the Dems do best. R's need to learn how do to it in the next 3 years.

So it's you & working class GOP voters to champion keeping the richest tax rates lower when they aren't particularly asking(8 of 10 of the wealthiest counties voted Obama)?

Bobby Jindal , Bill Kristol & other GOP politicians can no longer make this foolish defense of the wealthiest & see nothing wrong with rates returning to Bill Clinton levels.
