Jindal slams Romney for 'gifts' comment about minorities, young voters
cnn ^ | 11/14/2012 | Ashley Killough and Kevin Bohn

Posted on 11/14/2012 7:38:11 PM PST by tobyhill

Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana fiercely shot back at Mitt Romney’s claim Wednesday that President Barack Obama outmatched the 2012 Republican presidential nominee by offering "gifts" to African-Americans, Hispanics and young voters.

“I absolutely reject that notion,” Jindal, who was a surrogate for Romney’s campaign, said at the Republican Governors Association conference in Las Vegas. “I think that's absolutely wrong.”

“I don't think that represents where we are as a party and where we're going as a party,” he continued. “That has got to be one of the most fundamental takeaways from this election.”

Romney made the comments on a call with top donors Wednesday afternoon, various news outlets have reported. The former Massachusetts governor also made similar arguments on a separate call earlier in the morning, CNN confirmed.

"What the president, president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote," Romney said in the afternoon call, according to audio aired on ABC News.

Romney, who lost to Obama by 126 electoral votes, said the president courted voters by offering policies - some of them this election year - that appealed to key constituencies.

if Jindal is not a conservative, then what about Romney

Romney is what you said.

Jindal is not this wonderful Conservative that many think. He as done things here in LA that had Conservatives pull their hair out.

Two simple comparisons to Reagan. If you walked up to Jindal and asked him if Government was a necessary evil, he would cringe at the word evil

Reagan would not hesitate to say yes.

Two, Reagan was confident and bold when he outright fired the striking PATCO workers.

Jindal would be utterly incapable of taking such bold action. Jindal will NEVER be a leader that could turn this Republic back towards Liberty.

Jindal does not have the love of Liberty or reverence to our Constitution that Reagan internalized.

Jindal is wonderful at parroting many conservative lines, but that's it -- mostly talk. Remember, he got out of college and went straight into the vast government bureaucracy, as a wunderkind.

His first love is an activist government for so called good -- (hum, sounds like the Bushes).

What most refuse to acknowledge is that it was unlikely that ANYBODY could have beaten the voter fraud planned and perpetrated by the Obama machine. They seem to prefer pointing fingers, blaming Romney and blathering on about Patraeus' sex life.


Col Allen West; "I don't want to see America become like Zimbabwe where people don’t trust their electoral process. If we cannot trust the integrity of the voting system then we are no longer a free republic".

Col West has opened the door.

We must fight election fraud.

It falls on ‘We the People’.

These elections are NOT certified yet. The only way to get this investigated, much less recounted or overturned, is through the Secretary of State of each of the five key states: Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. EVEN IF YOU ARE IN ANOTHER STATE you can help. But it won’t do any good to dilute our effort to challenge California or Michigan or other states.

I don’t belive Romney is a loser, I believe we now have a dicator who has proven he is willing to do anything to win, including, lie, cheat and steal. Obama is getting stranger by the day, he knows he didn’t win this election, we now have our first dicator. Romney is correct, I heard about Obama giving away free cell phones to people who could prove that they had voted and were on welfare or diability. Saw the video, it’s true, sadly. Not only did Obama do that, but I also believe they just didn’t bother to count many of the mail in votes, just like they “lost” thousands of military votes. I am disgusted with Fox News for ignoring this while they report on what Obama is doing, as if that’s the big story, while they ignore that Obama stole this election. Does anyone remember Acorn? What was that all about? Voter fraud.

Obama did buy the vote.

Go ask any Obama voter why they voted for Obama.

Answers: Obamaphones, healthcare, education, abortions, etc.

Here is a take away fer ya, young jindal. You didn’t have the balls to stop all the vote fraud so you lost the election AFTER the election you couldn’t afford to lose (to an impostor you didn’t have the balls to call an impostor). A famous man once said, “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”. Well you’ll in the GOP fooled us twice now. Congrats! It is OUR fault now. The TEA Party should have started it’s own party in 2009. Even if we had lost it would have been an HONEST loss. No virtue in caving in to fraud.

The reason politicians do what they do is like generals trying to learn from the last war. They don’t understand that if they fight the next one like they think they should have fought the last one they will lose it, too. Axel rod didn’t suffer from this limitation. He knew it would come down to Ohio, Va, Fla. he also knew about how much fraud would be needed in just which places and he knew just how to keep enough GOP votes out to overwhelm his fraud. Hence we had long lines with LOWER numbers here in parts of Va. “Computer problems”. Yeah. Axel rod was also unencumbered by integrity so it was all really very simple. Like all men who are great in their own minds he shared his “vision” with a few folks (say Nate Silver, Daily Kos) and the rest, they say, is history. Out of Daley’s Chicago where even Rats acknowledge fraud put JFK in the White House we get Axelrod, who has taken it to “the next level”.

For the GOP, they're still trying to figure out how they won the Civil War. Don't tell them there have been others.

What was needed was a General Grant in this one. Throw more people at it and more and more and more. Then you win.

Romney tried to play it with drones and lost.

Gov. Romney happens to be right on this one. There were other reasons of course, but this was a big part of it.

Much as I disagree with Gov. Romney on a multitude of issues, he ran a very competent campaign. He’s also being relatively honest about where his campaign fell short. You can’t win against Santa.

I told you guys Jindal has been a disappointment to many conservatives here in Louisiana. He has developed the stench of a self-aggrandizing RINO.

I campaigned for him in 2003 and in 2007. I did not in 2011.

Romney lacked “fire in the belly.” I seriously doubt that he wanted to be President.

Tone of voice, pretty-boy smile, body language, choice of softball words, lack of follow-through on key issues such as the Benghazi Murders, etc., all indicated to me that he had better things to do with HIS precious time than to spend it running for President of the United States of America.

It is time for us to shun the typical RINO/GOP-Elite Campaigns Method of LOSE AT ALL COSTS.

“Whisper softly and then sit down” should be the motto of the Dole-McCain-Romney ‘Choose to lose’ Campaigns.

I voted for Newt in the primaries and I know if he had been the nominee he wouldn’t have been so passive towards personal attacks made on him. I don’t know if he could have won the presidency considering our current social situation, but at least Newt would have forced the president to answer for Benghazi, Fast and Furious, and the economy in a far more vigorous manner than in this past election with Mitt Romney. Conservatives didn’t work hard enough to get Newt or Rick the nomination. Instead of blaming the RINO establishment for nominating Romney the finger of blame should be pointed primarily at us.

Good point.

_________

My early concern about the prospects of beating Obama was that early in the Primary the GOP-Elite began to endorse the Father of Socialist, (partial State Control), Romney’care’ to be their opponent to the Father of Communist, (communal, total State Control), Obama’care.’

As long as the GOP-Elite have the habit of trying to choose winners and losers, we will continue to see Republican Candidates that are as out of touch with the voters as are our elected Federal politicians.

For example, 60 % of American voters want Obama’care’ abolished, FOREVER!

What does Sobber of the House Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Son-of-a-Mitch McConnell say to us?

Repeal and REPLACE! NOBODY IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WANTS TO ‘REPLACE’ Communist Obama’care!’

This makes three times in three days that Jindal has trashed Conservative principles.

And where does he do this?

At the Hard Left website, “Politico.”

Christie, Jindal, Terry Branstad, Rubio...

These guys are GOADING Conservatives to leave the party.

They are actually helping the MSM achieve their political dream, which is the destruction of the GOP as a political force.
