Bobby Jinndal's new playbook
#1
Here.

Jindal is my pick for the politician with the best fundamental philosophy, but he has always lacked the personal magnetism and charisma to be effective. His work product is excellent. He first came to national notice in a multi-page interview in Rush Limbaugh's newsletter, where almost every answer he gave was well-thought out and dead on. He was touted as the next Reagan until his deadly nationally-broadcast speech that crashed and burned. If there was one pick to replace Obama or Boehner, he would be my first pick - hoping his ability would overcome his lack of presence.

He is now addressing the liabilities in the GOP. He is treading water trying to be effectual without further mutilating the corpse. Less than half those in party power have the courage to buck the system and make changes. He is aiming at the handful who may come over and make his wing triumphant. Until that happens, Boehner and the other long-term Poobahs need to be outvoted by a larger margin than a simple plurality, because the media, who loves their submissiveness, will not accept the alternative gladly.

His recommendations on party rules is made to combat the rules that came out of the Presidential Convention. However; he also pointed out the stupidity of politicians like Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock who continually shoot themselves in the foot with ill-chosen soundbites that are used against them - often ironically positioning them on the opposite side of well-thought out convictions.

How anyone can fix the later problem is problematic. It may be mitigated, but that involves stated principles that are easy targets for the Left. It is far easier to lie about your opponents intentions than to defend yourself.

The premiss of Jindal's words are to put on a different face - specifically targeted at minorities.

Gingrich's comments seem more apt. He said many GOP sat back in the shadows unwilling to compete with the Progressive agenda thinking a conservative revolution was in the making, and after brooming Obama, they could step up and clean house. "Well, that world ain't there," Gingrich said. "So now they have to make adjustments. They've got to understand that this is a different game."

The GOP in the last 2 years has offered more goofs than just Murdock&Akin. We just can't win elections with candidates that come off as retarded.

For starters, we conservatives are going to have to face reality, the culture wars are :

1) Over and we lost big time

2) Not important, the state never had the ability to control or guide social decisions, that's in the hearts of 300 million citizens outside the state's purview.

Drop that fight, leave that to preachers&moms and dads and get back to the governance with limited government ideas of the old right, FAST.

Amen Bro. Same thing with that loser called Roe v Wade. Even if overturned, it wouldn't matter. Hell, if abortion was outlawed, the Left would definitely outnumber the Right by a sizable margin. Let them practice infanticide if they want to.

As long as they kill their own, who cares.
The true purpose of democracy is not to select the best leaders — a clearly debatable obligation — but to facilitate the prompt and peaceful removal of obviously bad ones.
