Posted on 11/18/2012 11:47:18 AM PST by Windy City Conservative
In response to Mitt Romney's analysis of why he may have lost the election -- specifically, that the President was successful in promising to bestow financial gifts on various constituent groups -- the Governor of Louisiana has remarked on CBS and on Fox News Sunday this morning that the Republican Party needs to stop talking down to voters and stop being ... wait for it ... the Stupid Party.
(Excerpt) Read more at ricochet.com ...
Jindals wrong about castigating Romney for acknowledging the fact that Democrats enslave urban voters and give them things fr their votes. And he is correct that the Republican Party is the stupid party. The two are not mutually exclusive.
so ive not noticed jindal saying there were no gifts.....because itz obvious to everyone that that the left buys their constituents votes in every election.....
since when it the truth ‘talking down’ to anyone???
Gov. Jindal is like the sun. He is sinking slowly in the west.
At one time he seemed to have a future with us but that future is disappearing. Unless I am reading him wrong.
Instead of pontificating opinions, digest the “facts” first.
In Missouri, an unpopular democrat senator gets-re-elected.
Mr Todd Akin makes statements which are praised by some conservatives, but is soundly defeated.
In Indiana, a solid red state, conservatives manage to primary a sure winner RINO senator Lugar. Then Mr Richard Mourdock makes statement again praised by some conservatives. He also loses to a democrat!
Fact #3: If any one thinks those two winning democrats will help stop killing of the unborn, you might need serious help. Akin and Mourdock now have zero power to push any conservative agenda. In our system of government, only winners of elections have any power.
Those 2 senate seats could have made a difference, especially on the issue of Obamacare. Now we are stuck with Obamacare at least for 4 years. By then it will be so entrenched with all the states installed health insurance alternatives, I can’t visualize any scenario which will reverse course. So sad, so disgusting, so foolish.
Finally on the issue of Romney candidacy, IMO he won by default in a weak primary field. IMO his main problem was not effort by him, I thought he gave it all, it was his incompetent advisers.
Your wrong, those two Senate seats would have given the GOP 47 total seats; not enough do to a D#$% thing to dismantle Obamacare. Stop making stuff up.
Any politician who can’t see that Obama promised goodies to every one of his voting blocs is too stupid to lead. Sane conservatives should be taking names of every publicity seeking official who lies about this basic truth. The more we see of Jindal, Gingrich, Walker trying to appease the Obama media, the more the idea of beginning a new party appeals to us. The GOP and its whining milquetoasts don’t deserve our support.
Romney did make a stupid remark. It reenforces the impression he made when he was caught with the 47% remark. Yes, Tammany Hall did win over people with Christmas geese , etc. No, that is not the only reason why the immigrants voted Democrat instead of Republicans. The Republicans were full of nativists who hated their guts—for sometimes good reason, BTW.
And Bush didnt? What about the drug freebees for seniors? What about the extensions of Social security beginning in the 50s instead of limiting it to the original purposes of the 1935 Act?
I don’t know anyone praising Akin’s statement. Most called for him to get out. Some like Huckabee rallied around him, but not because of his statement. IMO, he needed to get pushed out by all means necessary. He would ave been an okay senator, but he was a massive political liability for the whole party.
Murdock was already a statewide office holder and just made a blunder. If it hadn’t been so close to the election and following akin, I don’t think it would have cost him the seat. It is astounding the lack of message discipline among some on our side.
I would like to hear from our vaunted party poobahs why those losses were so bad when their hand picked guys in Wisconsin, Virginia and Florida failed just as miserably in winnable races.
I agree on your Romney statement. His advisors failed big time. I do recognize that he chose them and they all shared the northeastn moderate worldview, but at the same time, Romney actually impressed me in the final two months.
Jindal is not talking about the Conservatives or the Tea Partiers .. he’s talking about the REPUBLICAN ELITES .. and we all know who THEY are.
Every seat in senate is crucial. There are still a few blue dog democrats in senate, such as Manchin. Now they have solid fool-proof majority in senate.
I hope GOP has learned the lesson in nominating likes of Akin & Mourdock who have seriously hurt the conservative agenda.
No. He doesn’t. Mitt Romney, to judge by his comments, thinks voters are for sale. He emphasizes material incentives, minimizes social issues, and writes off voters whose material interest is different from his own. I don’t know if that’s the real Mitt Romney, but it’s certainly the impression he’s created. If Jindal is saying that we shouldn’t make everything a matter of material interest or us against them class-based politics, he’s right.
All "moderates" can do is scream RACIST! and ask us to commit treason -- our two Americas "will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed." Let's get it over with.
The questing before [you] is one of awful moment to this country . . . in proportion to the magnitude of the subject [there must] be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that [you] can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should [you] keep back [your] opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, [you] should consider [your]self as guilty of treason towards my country . . . whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, [you must be] willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
I’m dumbfounded by the blatant and highly-successful manipulation of the American people by journalists and politicians.
Why the hell is anyone still talking about Romney, he’s not even in the picture anymore. Let’s talk about the guy those same journalists and politicians put back in office. How about someone asking that guy about jobs. All I’ve heard since he got “re-elected” is taxes, layoffs, and bankruptcy. Don’t any of these king-makers want to even bring up the subject of jobs?
Oh yeah and there’s that silly Benghazi incident where four Americans fought and called for help for seven hours while our fearless leaders fiddled in Rome. I know the masses were given juicy scandals to keep them busy but there are still some of us out here who would like the guilty to pay for this treason.
Duh, what was I thinking, this is the new Amerika where the helpless masses don’t really get on the radar. Silly me.
Time to change our political affiliation to Independent or Conservative because the “Stupid Party” did THIS:
That is one of the most crucial elements of the problem.
Some would have us join them and kowtow to Obama's media.. I call the employees of the MSM skid marks on Journalism's shorts. One giant step to riding us of the two Americas problem would be for Journalism to wash his shorts.
He’s funny looking and Indian. No future beyond Louisiana.
I don’t think any of the party jockeying means jack spit. When you have voting machines putting out the most impossible results in all of the swing states.
“He who counts the votes determines the winner...” or some such...remember that?
Paper ballots with carbon copies, and voter ID’s with proof of residence. Also cleaned up voter registration lists.
Expecting voters to know whats going on and their reliance on MSM is just part of why our great loss. While there are examples of fraud which may close up the gap, the gap is too big to blame the loss on fraud ...Expecting GOP Es to address media bias or Romney to call Obama a congenital liar or even point out that the fact and figures released by the white house were allways questionable is another Let alone call him a “socialist”.. But the fault lies really in the messaging the Republican campaign came up.choking on political correctness parameters or triping over past positions on global warming and Romneycare both of which were bread and butter issues. .Then busy up responding to pseudo positions devised by the demo-com party and echoed by their hand maiden camp followers in the media allowing them to set the agenda ..
Romney ran a Johnny One Note Campaign. Used a poison dart blow gun when he should have used a cannon loaded with grape shot because he had pleanty of stuff he could fill that cannon barrel with..
They failed to hammer away on what will happen when Obama gets returned; The Obama past due 2013/14 Tax Increases. The impact of Obamas gagging energy resources.(A socialist construct never branded as such) with policies requiring reliance on intermittent re-sources wind and solar and that resulting in massive corruption .,restricted use of drilling, and coal ,bans on fracking, and resulting prices doubling on everything.. This was a bread and butter issue which reached into every demographics pocketbook including accepting the demo-com definition of hyphenated African-Hispanic -Americans . Then there was the impact of Supreme Court Appointments.. 18,000 new IRS agents and on and on. . Some were very briefly touched most werent and Benghazi/ foreign policy was left to languish. Then there is Obamas personal extravagance and behavior refusing to visit Nashville after its disaster showing up at New Orleans after Mitt visited it. Even after the Christi thing if that was brought up it would have blunted the impact.
Instead we got a sales pitch on executive ability but not the reason why one should toss the old model and buy his. That print and tv pitch , 20 million new jobs, was given a discrarded dose of skepticism .
In addition Rove who I understand was handling the Charter PAC senate campaign played games. His material never warned voters that IF OBAMA GETS RE-ELECTED AND SENATE CONTROL REMAINED . .. OBAMACARE AND ALL THE TAX INCREASES THAT GO WITH IT WILL NEVER GET REPEALED Let alone tie into or cover the formentioned grape shot which would have perhaps changed that body. I don’t recall any of that material directed toward that fact.
Finally they didnt believe the polls which turned out were dead on. Even going as far as setting up focus groups which could have looked into whats going on . Even to the point of going out to local eateries and bars and eavesdrop into conversations and pick up on topics being discussed.(chat rooms twitter too contrived) They would have learned their turnout projections were off and the sence of urgency to get out the vote was diminished by their glowing projections and disbelief never mind ORCA which should have been tested. COMPLACENCY WAS ENCOURAGED BY THE MEDIA AND NOT COUNTER ACTED UPON
Our local small population (-8000) rural blue county GOP had at the outset good and growing attendence at their meetings 50 plus. At the meeting the Thursday before the election only about a dozen people showed up and I knew we were in trouble .
Nuts...This loss is inexcuseable, while I trully don’t believe Mitt Romney would ever continence losing, I’m begining to believe that most GOPE’s really didn’t want to see AHCA, (affordable health care act) otherwise known as ZerO care go ..
Hey! You guys! If you see Bobby Jindal, tell him that he has a state to govern, and to come home, NOW!
The man has been out of state more than he has in.
When he is, if somebody actually says the word “No!” to him, that guy’s politicial job is finished, just as good ol’ Huey Long did!
Besides, Jindal still gets the blessings of that ex-con, who used to be governor, Edwin Williams.
OMGoodness .. then this must be why the dems HATED GW so much when he refused to allow them to steal the election from him.
Also, what a lot of people don’t know (because the media won’t tell), there was a recount in FL in the 2000 election. By election law, just one year after an election, you can have a recount. It’s very expensive; hiring lawyers, paying to get files out of storage; hiring people to physically do the recount, etc. Soooooo .. the many leftist papers (including WashPost, PalmBeachPost, and a whole host of others) got together and went down to FL and recounted the ballots from 2000. Bush actually won by over 1500 votes in FL, not the 537 he was certified with. This means that the dems were able to STEAL at least 1000 votes.
The WashPost did print an article about it - about 5-6 lines in a tiny article they hid way on the inside of the paper. Guess they didn’t want anybody to know .. so they could continue to use the mantra, “Bush stole the election”. And .. sadly, most lefties didn’t know about the recount so they willingly joined in the mantra.
I caught Bob Beckel trying to float the lie, “Bush stole the election” (a full 10 years after the fact), and I wrote a scathing note to FOX calling Bob a liar and giving the FACTS - to my knowledge Bob has never said it again.
Recently, I caught Juan Williams lying about “Wide Receiver”. For those who don’t know, Wide Receiver was conceived by George Bush and the President of Mexico (they were personal friends for years) trying to stop the flow of guns across the USA and Mexico. This program ended in 2007. Fast and Furious started in 2009 (a full 2 years after Wide Receiver ended) - and there was no Mexico coordination. These are two separate programs, run by two separate administrations.
Again, I sent FOX a scathing email. What really made me mad about it was Juan had been arguing with MaryKatherine - and she had just said that the left’s contributors at FOX were willing to lie in their arguments. Sooooo .. when Juan made the statement about Wide Receiver, I began my email with: “Juan just proved MaryKatherine’s statement”.
Juan outright lied about Wide Receiver. And .. I explained to FOX about the 2 programs so they would know I had facts to back up my complaint.
I noticed that Juan was not on FOX for quite some time, so I’m wondering if a lot of other people had commented about his statement too.
But, I’m afraid a lot of people are unwilling to take the time to point out these falacies to the media outlets. It’s important to keep letting the media know - you know - these people are lying.
If people aren’t willing to do even that much .. they might as well kiss this country goodbye.
As I see it the only one who can and will dish it out lives in Alaska...
Well Jindal is right about it being the stupid party. I gave up on the GOP this year. I dislike the party now. We need a Conservative party to replace them. I am going to switch to unaffiliated in protest of the GOP’s failure to defeat Obama, defend America and conservative values and also challenge the results of the election due to voter fraud. They are all scoundrels running the party who have become as bad as the democrats and statists.
Are’nt you overlooking what the democRats talking points are?
More college tuition breaks and Pell grants
More food stamps
More free contraceptives
More unemployment checks
More free Obama cell phones
More rent subsidies
More heat subsidies
More aid to dependent children
More free healthcare to the poor via Obamacare
I fail to see any social or inspirational message in any of the above. All I see is material benefits and they won!
Sounds like Jindal does not want to run for president in 2016. Or maybe ever.
He's not eligible. He's not a natural born citizen.
You might want to get your facts straight. Jindal was born in Baton Rouge.
He was born in Louisiana.
Will you also be spouting the moronic liberal talking point that Marco Rubio isn't a natural born citizen?
Will you also be spouting the moronic liberal talking point that Marco Rubio isn’t a natural born citizen?
so what is your OPINION as to the requirements to be a natural born citizen?
He’s not eligible. He’s not a natural born citizen.
Agree. BOTH parents must be Americans for their off-spring to be natural born citizens. That’s it. Easy, peasy. No, I’m not going to argue. It’s been proved and documented and is a fact!
Say goodbye to the house in 2014 because the GOP is full of G_DAMN IDIOTS@!
I got my facts from Jindal. He's the one who said he's not eligible.
Republicans have won votes in the past from people on those programs because of social issues. Certainly we've done well in some states with high percentages of people on food stamps, and this year one might have expected some of the unemployed to vote for change. Certainly it seems foolish to dis those people or write off their votes. It's less a matter of what you say, though, and more a matter of how you say it. A multimillionaire candidate probably should have finessed the whole thing better than Romney did, and that may be what Jindal was talking about.
Then why are you not protesting in front of the White House about Barack Hussein Obama’s ineligibility? His father was NEVER a US citizen. Why are you wasting time posting here? Go parade in front of WH and prove that you will actually put your thinking in action.
Sorry I forgot to include you in my post #38.
You're confusing Free Republic with Occupy Wall Street. I have this thing called a "job" and other things here - way out in CA - called "responsibilities".
I've been settling on using my vacation days to go lobby in Sacramento, but that's just on my own dime. If you'd like to bankroll a federal effort, I'm certain I can put something together.
If B H Obama, with his fake Hawaii BC, and a well known communist father of Kenyan citizenship, just won 2nd term as president, you are just wasting steam in saying any person born in US of legal parents, with a BC every body can see and get a copy of, is ineligible to run for president.
Not one of the 535 members of congress has raised issue of Obama’s ineligibility, neither has SCOTUS, neither has any of the 50 governors, neither has any of the 50 state legislatures passed such a resolution.
I suggest you employ your efforts in something you have at least a sliver of a chance in succeeding.
I'm sure you have a source and URL ready to substantiate your claim. I'd like to see it. Thanks.
It was on a televised interview right after the BP oils spill. Do your own research.
You have no source. You're full of crap.
Just because you want things to be a certain way doesn't make them so.
I like Jindal. I'd like to be able to vote for him, but he himself said he wasn't eligible.
You don't want to do any research, fine, don't. That doesn't make me wrong.
It's not my responsibility to prove Jindal didn't say something. That's not even possible. What is possible, if he indeed did say what you claim, is for you to post the evidence.
But you won't.
By the way, here is the stock answer to every abortion question. It needs to be memorized by every Republican office-holder and candidate:
"At the present time, the right to abortion is held by the Supreme Court as the law of the land and that ruling can only be changed by the Supreme Court. There is certainly nothing a single senator or congressman - - or even the entire Congress, for that matter - - can do to overturn a ruling of the Supreme Court, even a ruling with which I and many millions of other Americans profoundly disagree. As a US (Senator/Congressman) I will continue to support pro-life legislation that tests that 1974 ruling.
I will support judicial nominees, including appointments to the Supreme Court, who respect the United States Constitution, not as a guideline, or a meaningless living document, but as the framework for the limited government intended by the nations founders; a serious legal document that guarantees the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
"My hope is that someday soon Roe v. Wade will be overturned - - by the Supreme Court - - and decisions about abortion can be returned to the people; that is, to the states and to the communities where those decisions belong.
You want a link that badly, go find it. I also heard obama say "my muslim religion" and I don't have a link for that, either.
Actually I agree with what Mourdock said, but not with what Akin said.
But my point is that the candidate must be media savvy if he/she is going to win elections. Neither of those two were.
If Bobby Jindal decides to run for president, which I don’t think he will, but he will be more eligible than the current resident of White House. Why? Because...
Not one of the 535 members of congress has raised issue of Obamas ineligibility, neither has any one on SCOTUS, neither has any of the 50 governors, neither has any of the 50 state legislatures. People like you who like to eat your own disgust me.
