Jindal: End Dumbed-Down
Conservatism

Politico, by Jonathan Martin

Original Article

Posted By:forward, 11/13/2012 1:26:09 PM

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Monday called on Republicans to “stop being the stupid party” and make a concerted effort to reach a broader swath of voters with an inclusive economic message that pre-empts efforts to caricature the GOP as the party of the rich...(snip) “It is no secret we had a number of Republicans damage our brand this year with offensive, bizarre comments — enough of that,” Jindal said. “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.


Comments:
Jindal sounds like he intends to take a shot at 2016 - offering himself as non-white and non-stupid. Hmm, ok...

"we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”

Seriously Governor?? Here is one for ya--No one is insulting the intelligence of the voters. We are just underestimating their stupidity.

Intelligence of the American people??? Bahahhaaa thanks Bobby I needed a laugh. We are witnessing the result of decades of govt education. People are now too stupid \ lazy to work and provide for themselves. They see the govt as the provider of their every need. They still blame Bush for the economy. THESE are your "intelligent Aerican voters".. you can have them.

Every election, there is a faction of the Republican Party that insists on dragging out the abortion issue. This election, that practice cost the GOP dearly.

It´s time the Republicans stopped raising abortion as an issue. It´s time to move on. Roe v. Wade will NEVER be overturned. Abortion will never again be illegal. So why keep dragging this dead corpse out every election cycle?

Time to move on and get that abortion ball-and-chain from around the ankle of the Republican Party. Abortion is a no-win issue.

Jindal is not a natural born citizen. He was born here of non citizen parents. He is of the anchor baby citizen status.
How about we take back the schools and stop dumbed down generations of future voters?

There were candidates during the primary who presented ideas and articulated a positive conservative vision for the future. They consistently drew crowds and did well in early polling. So the message was there.

And then it was drowned out by negative presentations and a disingenuous but well funded campaign that did insult the intelligence of potential voters.

Jindal is right and understands where this movement must go next.

I do think a lot of Repubs talk down to voters. They also talk down to Repubs that don´t fit the "old-school" model.

We need to stop letting the north-east establishment, well-mannered types run the party.

It hasen´t been working for some time now.
Did it ever?

What is it about doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result?

Jindal should resist parroting liberal media chatter, and he should do some thinking of his own. It is clear that the presidency was claimed by more TAKERS than MAKERS, period.

Any GOP effort to sway TAKERS with handouts will disperse the base, and TAKERS will stay with demonRATS for more comprehensive handouts.

Bottom line. Romney would have won, if the 3,000,00 Republicans who didn´t vote would have pried their lazy asses off the couch.

It´s true.
#7, Catholics still voted overwhelmingly for Obama and Democrats, so if you can´t get Catholics on-board with the abortion issue then you might as well leave it alone which is what most Catholics actually do.

Need to frame all issues into economic issues.
We can support unions, but ask the unions where does the money come from to pay for the wages and benefits?

Ask those who would benefit from oil and natural gasoline development why they´re allowing the Democrats and EPA from preventing you from the tax revenues that would help pay for teachers, police and firefighters?

Stop with defending tax-cuts for the top 1-2% and give it to the Dems.

If it doesn´t produce the desired revenues, then we can attack their failed plan.

Dumbed-down liberal/leftism is working out just great, isn´t it? Republicans will never win by trying to out-pander Democrats. Entitlement junkies will always stick with the original, and the targets for the phony "reach out" programs are and always will be entitlement junkies when the chips are down.

The tax issues needs to be framed differently too. Calling for an income tax cut when barely half are paying anything did not resonate. Just simplifying the tax code may win-over more voters than anything else.

Jindal´s exhortation is fine, if one assumes the way Republicans present themselves or pitch their message is the main problem. The way the enemedia distorts almost everything in favor of the Democrat side has a lot more to do with the general public´s perceptions.

(Even if Jindal were able to present himself as the most intelligent, articulate, competent, and trustworthy candidate, the MSM would still largely caricaturize him as a stupid, pro-rich, anti-woman, anti-poor, racist.)

When are we going to start talking about the dumbed-down, slavish Dems? The ones with their hands out, wanting to take from others; the people whom the Dem/Lefty leadership knows they can manipulate and cajole and rile with a few scary words like "work" and "pay your own way" and "there are not guarantees in life" and "buy your own dam* phone"?

We do have a problem with Repubs (or maybe indies who tend toward Repub) who can not be stirred from their cozy nests, the ones who say "it doesn´t matter."

For too long our side has allowed the "third-partiers" and "libertarians" to sacrifice the good on the altar of the UNATTAINABLE perfect. Perhaps we are far too tolerant.

I can´t help but notice, the last two election cycles we all dreaded who the nominee was going to be, called him a RINO or non-conservative, and guess what - he lost. To a raging liberal "of color" with the middle name of Hussein!

I also don´t think it is a coincidence that the last time we nominated someone with bona fide conservative views and track record, someone who usually made it very plain what he stands for and what he doesn´t - guess what. We won, twice in a row. I know GWB was not conservative enough for some on here, and his economic team could have done more to prevent or lessen the start of the economic collapse of 2008-2009. But I think history is judging him too harshly now and the bottom line is, the presidency is all or nothing, you either win the election or you lose. Our track record has been better when we put forth a nominee who is plain-spoken and solid about conservative values. It is very possible to state "I am pro life" without flinching, AND just leaving it that far. Not going too far and barking about rape and incest. Frankly I miss Bush-Cheney every damn day, compared to what we have now.

Everyone who believes in Conservative principles also believes that after the re-election of anti-capitalist, socialized-medicine-loving, taxing-and-spending Barack Obama and the Democratic Senate, the economy will collapse.

Just as everyone who believes in the principle of gravity also believes that if someone jumps out of a plane without a parachute, he will crash into earth.

There´s nothing Republicans can do now but wait until things get so bad that even the stupidest voters will be willing to walk through broken glass to return them to office so they can clean up Obama´s multi-term reign of incompetence.

In the meantime, we can continue to watch the inevitable decline and fall of the MSM, already being speeded up post-election, evidenced by the firing of many news employees in anticipation of the burdens of four more years of failed Obamanomics.

He’s right. We shoot ourselves in the foot every year. We don´t do anything to change public perception of who we are. BTW, the party was NOT charted to be a bible-thumping religious group. Yes, I understand the need for morality and decency and we should never give that up. But the party takes it too far. And making the entire party platform based on one or two issues, in the narrowest of definitions and where people don’t agree (especially considering scientific evidence), is just insane and stupid. Data proves that MOST instances of conception don’t make it all the way to term. In fact, even 30% of implanted eggs miscarry. And be honest, there is no sentience within dividing zygotes. So, why is it so imperative that we must lose ALL our power and our entire country just because some people insist that conception is the same as a complete, whole life (although evidence shows differently)? Is it more important to "be right" and lose all power, influence and ability to make things right? Or isn´t it better to make a small partial concession on something that you just might not be absolutely certain of and still have political viability to regain power and influence which you can use to improve and restore our once great country??? That is NOT the same as "going along and getting along" with Democrats--it is called being RATIONAL. Allow only early term, first trimester procedures, then use that political leverage to regain power and find ways to educate people so we can cut the total number of abortions to a fraction of what they are today. "All or nothing" will only get us NOTHING. Most is better.

I´ve got news for Jindal. Obama beat something with nothing. Also, if Jindal thinks he can escape any criticism because he is a minority and "smart," he´s sadly mistaken. The other side will smear him just like they do every Republican. If that doesn´t work, they´ll steal the election like they did this one.

After the Democrats lost twice to Bush, they decided to move to the center and stop calling for taxes on the rich, abortion rights and gays in the military. Oh wait,they didn´t. In fact, they won with the most liberal candidate ever to win the office of President. The Republicans need to run a candidate with likeability and an uplifting message. Too bad they let the Sarah Palin brand be so damaged. Maybe Jindal can do it. Or maybe Rubio. Or maybe someone we haven´t yet thought of.

Cross Jindal off the list. I heard he was OK, but now he opens his mouth and validates some the leftwing propaganda about "communicating inclusiveness". Get this, it´s about race and Free Stuff. I can´t do a reverse Michael Jackson, OK? I´m not getting a sex change operation, I´m not going to medical school to learn how to do abortions. Imitation Democrats will always lose to real Democrats.

Rand Paul has another problem
Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin    Original Article
Posted By: forward- 11/8/2013 2:57:57 PM     Post Reply
In the spring of 2010 stories first swirled around Sen. Rand Paul’s certification as an ophthalmologist by an outfit called the “National Ophthalmology Board,” an entity he founded. This week I discovered that while he continues to present himself as “board certified” the NOB has been out of business since 2011, and in any event, does not under Kentucky law permit him to advertise as “board certified.” In 2010 Rand Paul explained that he formed the board in 1997 along with 200 young ophthalmologists to protest a decision by the American Board of Ophthalmologists to grandfather those who were certified by 1992, but to limit certification for a ten year period for those first certified after that date.

With fewer than 48 hours to go before the Oct. 17 deadline to increase the nation’s borrowing limit, neither the House and Senate, nor Republicans and Democrats, can coalesce behind one proposal aimed at staving off potential default. Early Tuesday, the House said it would move its own version of a bill which includes repealing an exemption of the Affordable Care Act for Congressional members, their staffs, the president and vice president. The proposal also provides a two-year suspension of the medical device tax...

House Speaker John Boehner told a group of House GOP members he would be willing to rely on Democrats to help pass a measure to raise the debt limit, setting aside a practice conservatives insist he follow known as the “Hastert rule,” according to one House Republican who attended a private session with Boehner on Wednesday. The "Hastert rule," adopted by former GOP House Speaker Dennis Hastert, is the practice of not permitting a vote on any legislation in the House unless a majority of House Republicans back it.

Are we heading toward
a Post-Christian Middle East?
CNN Opinion, by Peter Bergen and Jennifer Rowland    Original Article

There have been Christians in the Middle East since the time of, well, Christ. Now that two millennium-long history could be in danger. Islamist thugs have attacked dozens of churches across Egypt in the past few days, burning many of them down. The attacks seemed to be protests against the brutal military government crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood that killed many hundreds of Egyptian Islamists over the past week. Pope Tawadros II, the leader of Egypt's Christian Copts, met publicly with top military officers as they announced the coup that removed President Mohamed Morsy and his Muslim Brotherhood government from power in early July.

Bombing Suspects’ Mom:

The mother of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing says she believes the tragedy that killed three people and injured dozens more was staged, that the bombing was fake. “That’s what I want to know, because everybody’s talking about it — that this is a show, that’s what I want to know. That’s what I want to understand,” said Zubeidat Tsarnaev. She has seen a video purporting the wild idea, she told CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh, who interviewed her in Makhachkala, Dagestan. He asked if she has seen the news images of the actual bombings and the suffering they caused.

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
