    Jindal understands that at the end of the day, the TP are NOT the "real" Republicans.
    Yep.

    I miss the kind of republicans like the ones we had here in Oregon when I was a kid. They stood for small business, and not predatory cannibals like Bain.

Our media made a lot of hey over "legitimate rape" and paid scant attention to the riot that didn't kill 4 people in Benghazi in the last weeks of the election.
    This isn't about the idiot statements - its about how they are reported by the leftists in charge of the lame stream media.
    awesome. Let's keep what we have been doing then.
    I may be wrong.

    Despite political disagreements with Jindal, he is in fact, not stupid:

    Jindal was named a member of the 1992 USA Today All-USA Academic Team. He was accepted by both Harvard Medical School and Yale Law School, but studied at New College, Oxford, as a Rhodes Scholar. He received an M.Litt. degree in political science with an emphasis in health policy from the University of Oxford in 1994.

    As long as the Far-Right puts forward a "small tent" agenda while claiming to be for everyone when truthfully they primarily support the wealth-class, the party will struggle to lure people to their cause. When over half the country is non-white and struggling financially, the Republican Party does itself harm by not only distancing themselves from those in need but also by putting forth candidates who don't understand the plight of the people. Forthermore, when they portrary people who are on entitlement programs through no fault of their own as "takers," they don't endear folks to them; instead they push folks away.

    I could and would have voted for Romney if he came across as more genuine, caring and had a more credible economic plan. Instead, he started out allowing himself to be pushed to the Far-Right, then he alienated a race of people who are some of the hardest working people I know. And then he selected Paul Ryan as his VP running mate and initially endorsed Ryan's plan; it took Romney over a month afterwards to finally start pushing his own agenda. By then it was too late for me and I suspect others as well. I gave him careful consideration, but in the end all he had going for him was a promise of job creation based not on his economic plan but on what I'm sure was a host of promises based on crony capitalism. And haven't we had enough of that already? There were other things that turned me away, but that was the biggest. I just couldn't bring myself to vote for him when I viewed him as less credible than who we already had in office.

    Disagree if you wish, but that's just how I saw it.

    THIS is what hurts your party!

    People who ignore how deregulation (or the lack of regulatory oversight) caused the financial meltdown in the first place...

    People who think that everyone who are on entitlement programs are there because they're shiftless and lazy...

    People who think that the only viewpoint that matters is their own...

    YOU represent the very people within the Republican Party Gov. Jindal is talking about.

    I was really surprised to learn it is a common republican attitude, and even more surprised to hear it coming from Bill O'Reily. I thought he was smarter than that. Idk anymore.

    Your right, to give you some first hand perspective...I was a republican over 40 yrs, voted strictly republican for most of it...for most of that time I was oblivious to the real agenda of the republican party. I bought it all just like most of the conservative leaners on here.
    What you have to keep foremost in your mind..is that a very small percentage of republicans are the rich..if they are only 2% of the country they cant be 50% of all republican supporters....the lionshare of republicans are not rich, most of them make under 100k a year. These same republicans are the ones that in the future are going to need SOCIAL SECURITY and MEDICARE the most...not the john boehners and Paul Ryans and Mitt Romneys...that they are supporting who if they could get away with it would end the programs...they know they cant do that so ryan did an end run and tried to kill it by attrition with vouchers and huge copays.
    On another forum when obama was running against McCain in 2008 there was a guy the most vocal....screaming that Medicare, Social Security was unconstitutional along with medicaid...then we find out he was on disability social security and medicare at 41...
    Many republicans are supporting republicans all the wrong reasons...evangelicals probably have the best reason of all to support them...but many others are just slashing their own throats...

    YOU represent the very people within the Republican Party Gov. Jindal is talking about.
    And do I care what Jindal has to say, we are over 16 trillion in debt and under Obama he has increased that debt by 6 trillion in just 4 yrs, and is still climbing by over a trillion a year under Liberal Obama. But to you liberals living on borrowed money is just fine as long as you don't have to pay for it. The EPA is killing the coal industry and all the jobs but you liberals don't care about jobs, never have. I could list a long page of job killing Liberal BS. Further you love entitlements, but you hate being told you are burring this country in a mountain of debt. Why, because you believe there is no end to the money supply.
    Liberals - Punish the Successful, Reward the Unsuccessful
    Liberals - Tax, Borrow, Spend, and Give Free Stuff
    Obama's legacy - President Donald Trump
