I am really disappointed they did not change Vernon's last name to Lube.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal hurled harsh criticism at his own party after the GOP was blindsided in the 2012 elections, telling Republicans to end "dumbed-down conservatism" by putting a stop to "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 told 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.”

Jindal told Politico Republicans should “stop being the stupid party” by working to embrace a larger group of constituents rather than becoming the party of "big anything."

The GOP governor criticized the idea that the GOP is "the party that simply protects the rich." Jindal even took a jab at Mitt Romney's now-infamous "47 percent" remarks, noting Republicans would have to be more inclusive going forward.

“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.”
Heeeeeeey, good comments here, Jindal! This is what I want to hear more of from the GOP.

The beginnings of Jindal 2016 start in denunciation of the party that was slayed by Barack Obama in 2012.

A good thing.

but the 2 recent candidates who made it through the increasingly insane GOP primaries were Mitt and McCain. they defeated the crazies -- despite appealing to the base -- and were deemed "electable."

i think there may be some play for that role for 2016. right now it belongs to Christie.

Who needs dog whistles when you can use blatant racism, and then have it embraced by the party as a whole?

Charlie Webster, the outgoing Maine Republican chairman, claimed Wednesday in an interview that "hundreds" of black voters cast ballots in rural Maine towns, contributing to the party's losses.
"In some parts of rural Maine, there were dozens, dozens of black people who came in and voted on Election Day," he said in an interview with WSCH TV. "Everybody has the right to vote, but nobody in town knows anybody that's black -- how did that happen? I don't know. We're going to find out."
Pressed on where it happened, he said it happened in "several rural Maine towns." He added that without a voter ID law or "way to check," voting was "fraught for abuse."
Webster stood by the claim in an interview with the Portland Press Herald. "I'm not talking about 15 or 20. I'm talking hundreds," he said. "I'm not politically correct and maybe I shouldn't have said these voters were black, but anyone who suggests I have a bias toward any race or group, frankly, that's sleazy."

Riiiiight! Talk about conspiracy run amok!

If we only had laws to suppress anyone of color from voting, our guy would have won!!

Maybe if the GOP didn't continue to make such dumb ass statements like this, they could get some votes out of minorities.

But please, feel free to keep spouting off how it was the blacks or hispanics fault that Romney lost, and the USA should feel ashamed for that.

Obama won because he wooed voters by giving them shit?

Or did he win because his party is not really down with completely alienating entire chunks of the population?

He also said women voted for Obama because of the "gift" of free contraceptives.

Just be a man and face the reality of why you lost. Face your own mistakes. What he said there, well that alone is a good indication of his character. Maybe THAT's why you lost dude.

The Republicans needs to get introspective and navel-gazey about why they lost, not finger-pointy.
