Bobby Jindal wins Turkey of the Year Award
Bayoubuzz.com ^ | November 23, 2012 | Jeff Crouere

Posted on 11/23/2012 10:48:50 AM PST by Marketfly1

This self-promoting, narcissistic presidential aspirant did not even let the dust settle from the 2012 presidential campaign before he was hurling insults at Governor Romney. In the immediate aftermath of the election, Jindal made headlines for referring to the Romney campaign as “stupid.” He made a very public point of saying that he rejected Romney’s analysis of the election that Obama won by giving large “gifts” to certain minority groups. He called the remarks “insulting” and said that the Republican Party cannot win by demonizing people.

Surely LA can find someone in the TEA Party to primary Jindal when he runs for re-election. He’s yesterday’s news.

Jindal is not a natural born citizen of the U.S.A.; also not of presidential timber, although seems to be a very good governor for his state, IMO.

Well, it’s one thing to “eat our own” as you say - it’s another thing to do so while being totally bass ackwards from the truth, which Jindal is.

You can't out-pander the Democrats with minorities.

Minority voters who are susceptible to pandering just won't believe a Republican attempting to pander and will vote for the genuine, Democrat pandering article.

Fiscal and social conservatives will see the pandering for what it is, will be infuriated and won't support the attempted panderer.

Mushy middle undecideds will be put off by the uproar, the source of which they have no clue, so they'll just vote for the panderer who is not being attacked.

It's a no-win for the Republican panderer. For all his purported intelligence, it was a stupid thing to say on Jindal’s part. His first impulse is pandering.

Thank you Governor Jindal, for making your priorities clear. In that, you are in the company of another governor, Chris Christie of New Jersey.

You both seem uniquely suited to the conditions and challenges in your respective states. You should stay there.

The sinkhole could be a real danger though. Hydrogen sulfide, butane, methane, and other gasses have accumulated. And, the thing keeps growing. Hopefully the worst doesn’t happen; but, it doesn’t look like this will end well

I think most here are misreading Jindal's remarks. He didn't say anything about pandering. Using Romney's turns of phrase, which were in their own way, as clunky as Akin and Mourdoch's though on a different matter, are not the way to persuade people to vote for you.

Romney's campaign was astonishingly vapid and content-free and feebly negative ("in over his head"). Yeah, I know he had his five to 59 points for fixing the economy, which was mostly composed of platitudes. I also don't expect ANY politician to get too specific about what to cut. But, man, if you are going to go negative, go NEGATIVE, and on Obama, not on the 47% or on anybody whose votes you might want. This was Dukakis redux; for those who recall, Dukakis wanted to make the election about "competency". He had it, Bush the Elder didn't. Great playbook there Romney, he wanted to be Mike Dukakis, Wendell Willke and Steve Forbes (decent man, awful candidate) rolled into one. ONCE in a while you get the successful businessman who is the whole package. Pete DuPont and Peter Fitzgerald are two that come to mind. Most of the rest are "in over their heads".

This is NOT the time to be gunning after anyone who questions the man who ruined the election of 2012: Mitt Romney. He is killed, now we must BURY him, not praise him.

Too bad Mr.-Competant-Business-Man-who-saved-the-Olympiscs-and-fixed-Massachusetts couldn't even run a dcent GOTV operation or spend his money efficiently on ads (he did the same with the ads in 2008).

This is an anti-Romney site. We just happen to be more anti-Obama, so many chose the poop sandwich over the strichnine ... fine.

But now it is time to understand that the GOP-E is going to try to hang this on us, instead of their own candidate that they shoved down our throats. So, don't worry about Romney getting criticized. He got his chance, and for his extra $100,000,000 in campaigning and the mask being ripped off of Obama at least to some, he couldn't take the ball over the goalline, or even move the needle much. He is a negative example of what NOT to do, not one to be defended.

Republicans have really lost it when they choose the radical left-wing Romney, over mainstream republicans.

Scott Walker, Bobby Jindal, Susanna Martinez, Marco Rubio, are all vastly superior to Mitt ,and vastly more conservative than Mitt Romney, regardless of their shortcomings in that department.

Romney is a hard left Massachusetts gaffe machine that needs to shut up and crawl back into whatever anti-tea party, anti-Reagan, anti-conservative hole that he crawled out off.

Romney, I marched with MLK, and “Reagan was adamantly pro-choice”, bet you $10,000.00, “life long hunter”, “longed to serve in Vietnam” gaffe master and weirdo, needs to go away.

That's like saying that once a murderer goes free, it sets a precedent against convicting someone of murder from now on.

It doesn't.

Ultimately, Constitutionality becomes a political issue - are the parties involved willing to uphold the Constitution or not? That includes the People who vote. It's not surprising that Constitutionally ineligible voters (i.e., non-citizens) would vote for a Constituitionally ineligible candidate.

However, what was lacking this time was clear evidence and fortitude to demand it. All the other states could have used their Constitutional power of full faith and credit to demand that Hawaii share their public records. Only Arizona tried and failed. Perhaps if other states joined, Hawaii might have been forced to comply or Congress forced to act?

In any case, precedent can't overturn the Constitution. That's why we have weak presidencies and strong presidencies. It depends on the boldness of the President and the meekness of Congress and the Courts. That's where we are now, BTW, with meek and weak leaders in Congress, and a confused man in charge of the Supreme Court.

From what I’ve heard, they haven’t even attempted to pump off any of the butane from the butane well nearby. Too expensive. Nevermind, that the chemical brew going on right now could set off something more expensive than anything this nation has ever seen Also, they don’t seem to be very forthcoming to the residents in the area about how serious things are. The Hydrogen sulfide news was kept quite for at least 24 hours after they realized there was an issue. Frankly, I think the people at Bayou corne are sitting on a powder keg, and the salt mind company there doesn’t seem to be the most competent at handling the “burn-offs”. They aren’t there 24/7 for 1. The Lake Peigneur sinkhole should serve as a warning what can happen with Salt Domes and a permanent evacuation from the area seems to be the least they should do. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddlrGkeOzsI

Ludicrous as it sounds, I don’t doubt there are GOP party animals who would salivate at the thought of that. Both of them rubbed me wrong when they first began getting national note, and as time wears on I have begun to understand why. They’re nominal fiscal conservatives who manage to get elected in typically hostile states by pandering.

If "most Americans" are not the Posterity of We the People, then "most Americans" are not eligible to be President.

You must be referring to 1st generation Americans, that is, the children of immigrants. If the children came here with their parents, or if the children were born before their parents acquired citizenship, then they are not the Posterity of We the People. If the immigrants become citizens (become We the People), then their future children will be the Posterity of We the People.

It's a harsh reality for some, and it may be an unfair luck of life's draw, but that's the way it is.

You are off-base in this type of attack on Gov. Romney. While his campaign was not as efficient and effective as it might have been, he has moved very substantially to the right, since he left the Massachusetts Governorship. Failing to give him credit for that; and attacking him as Jindal did for correctly pointing out that Obama has effectively bought votes, does not help Republicans come together in the future.

We need a period of healing; not to let Republican "Liberals" move us to the Left, but simply to help other Conservatives reflect, pray, take stock, and prepare to go back into the lists. For some suggestions as to how the Romney campaign could have been greatly improved, in a clearly very Conservative direction, Obama Or America--Clarity On Irreconcilable Differences.

We are all upset about the immediate prospects; we all need to agree to resist those who have lost sight of what the very object of "winning" is all about: Preservation of the culture of the Americans who pointed us in the most successful path in human history; a path based upon individual responsibility, multi-generational pursuits, both spiritual & material; the pursuits of strong families (not the substitution for the family being promoted by Obama, the Media & very, very confused agitators, today.)

A "broad tent" is only acceptable, if it is not a tent confused as to its direction. In the latter case, "winning" really means losing everything.

I have heard some good things about Jindal, but his attack on Romney was a cheap shot, over a subject where Romney was correctly identifying part of the corruption that we have to deal with.

Frankly, we need to address the definite conflict of interest, in even allowing people who receive unearned benefits from Government, to even vote for any level of Government that is in a position to buy their votes.

If you think addressing that problem is "liberal," you have a different definition than mine.

Totally off base, we take Romney for who and what he is and always has been, a hard lefty.

Sane people do not let a life long political animal, and politician, at age 60, simply reverse his entire life’s politics and passionate beliefs, to start a campaign for national office, and simply accept it as time to make him the leader of their movement, that he has always opposed.

Romney’s legacy will be fame in the history books for losing to Jimmy Carter’s second term, for only winning a single term in political office, and for gay marriage and for Romney/Obama care.

He is the first openly pro-abortion, pro-homosexuals in the military, pro-homosexual Scout leaders, anti-Christian cult leader nominee in history.

Romney should not be the one talking now. He lost the election and his right to speak about how things should be. He is so over and we need to stop making him out to be some great politican. He isn’t. He is a liberal snake who stole the primary and then got his a$$ handed to him by Obama of all people. You know you suck when you lose to the worst President after Carter.

Great post. By any chance were you listening to “Rush” today? Doug urbanski (sp?) was on there and I found myself saying “where was this guy before the election?” He was spot on! Talking about how if you want to beat the alinskying left and their media in a battle (election), you have to Actually Show Up and get around the media. Then he showed several brilliant ways to beat the media, and mentioned how herman Cain did one of the ways (before his candidacy was derailed).

One was: have a short, sweet, viral talking point. Cain had 999. As Urbanski explained, it almost doesn’t matter what your plan is (though it should be a good conservative plan); it needs to be spread around, mocked by the opposition, but gotten into the average joe’s brain, and make a lot of people start thinking about it. Could it work? Even those who say it could never work were talking about it. To rise to the level of getting mocked on SNL means your plan is getting out there.

This is how you get right over the media. Make them work FOR you. A 59 point plan or whatever is BS. Urbanski ran through a bunch of other easy points one could use, including “term limits.” If you decided to run on this, get the bums out, then the media falls in and starts broadcasting that we need experienced politicians, etc. but the average joe will think about it and wonder if we really need the Harry Reid’s, or even the republican entrenched... It has thus gotten around the mouthpiece media.

He also criticized the Romney camp For not fighting the fight: Romney could have won if he answered Obama’s negative ads (85% were) in the battleground states. GO NEGATIVE ON YOUR OPPONENT OR DON’T RUN. I’d like to have McCain and Romney show me the science behind darker skin meaning a greater person, because both of them clearly believed it. Romney must have felt Gingrich was pasty enough to go negative on.

He also
