Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal didn’t pull any punches in a post-election critique of his own Republican Party.
In this interview with Politico, Jindal tells the GOP to “stop being the stupid party.”
EXCERPT: “We’ve got to make sure that we are not the party of big business, big banks, big Wall Street bailouts, big corporate loopholes, big anything,” Jindal told POLITICO in a 45-minute telephone interview. “We cannot be, we must not be, the party that simply protects the rich so they get to keep their toys.”
Jindal’s comments are getting a lot of circulation on Facebook, but Democrats and liberals appear to be doing most of the circulating.
Jindal is about to become chairman of the Republican Governors Association, which now includes 30 of the 50 U.S. governors. He is widely mentioned as a potential GOP presidential candidate in 2016. (I know you all are anxious to get the 2016 campaign under way.)
