Bobby Jindal did it Again! Oh Nooos!

Not long after Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal said the Republican party cannot afford to be the “stupid party,” his approval rating among his own base of supporters plummeted. Now Governor Howdy Doody has done it again, and this trespass may be even more egregious.


“Balancing our government’s books is not what matters most … (It’s) a nice goal, but that shouldn’t be our primary objective,” Jindal told a packed ballroom at the Renaissance Grand in downtown St. Louis for the Missouri Republican Party’s Lincoln Days.

“We must not become the party of austerity. We must become the party of (economic) growth,” Jindal said. “We have fallen into a trap of believing the world revolves around Washington.”

“As conservatives, we are falling into these sideshow traps” instead of hammering at the message of economic growth, said Jindal. “We seem to have an obsession with government bookkeeping.”

We can’t be the stupid party, and we can’t be the party of austerity? What does that leave for Republicans?

17. His actions speak much more eloquently than his words.

He is an inhuman monster who is happy to sacrifice the poorest and most desperate on the altar of perceived political advantage.

28. Forget that!!! Jindal is a complete loser. At least Crist stood up for right many times before

Crist ended up leaving the republican party. Jindal has stood for nothing, he says whatever he thinks will make him look better.

2. If Jindal doesn’t pander to the crazies,

and he doesn’t pander to the fiscal hawks, all that leaves for him in the Republican Party are the crooks! Well, that’s Louisiana for ya!

3. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS MAN FOR A MOMENT!

I live in Louisiana and as a professor I know what he has done to higher education in the state. Since he's been in office he has lowered education funding for state colleges and universities by 32%. He claims he has helped higher education weather a state revenue loss of 26% in the past five years and has only cut state funding by 7%.

He bases his figure of 7% (instead of 32% which all but a funded right-wing study concluded) on the fact that universities have raised tuition (which he calls state funding!) and several other ficsal slight-of-hand.

Do not believe this man for a moment.

Jindal wants to do away with the corporate and individual income taxes and replace their revenue with higher sales taxes, which he claims will e for fair for everyone (and make the tax cheats pay an equal share). He claims a sales tax will not inordinately hurt the poor nor aid the rich.

Do not believe this man for a moment.

12. I don't believe anything he says. I just think

it's good he's rocking his own party boat.

Sorry, about what he's done to hurt higher education in Louisiana, skip fox.

25. I read as much as a 14% sales tax.

And he says it won't hurt the poor? Only if they buy nothing.

15. He's all over the place.

If he's hoping to appeal to moderates in a future general election, he's forgetting he has to run the gauntlet in his party's mad dog primaries. And the current Republican Party eats their own.

16. Here's the question:

We can’t be the stupid party, and we can’t be the party of austerity? What does that leave for Republicans?"

Here's the answer: They can always fall back on bigotry, misogyny, and violence as their back-up themes.

He's doing the Chris Christie, look at me I'm rebelling, only he isn't really, he's just another opportunist. We don't this type in our party because they will turn again when it suits them.
