“I think now is the perfect time to pivot and to say, not only here’s what we’re against, and not only here’s how we’re going to contrast ourselves, but here’s what we’re for,” Jindal said in an interview Tuesday with POLITICO.
I don’t think Bobby Jindal has been paying attention. The GOP has offered several solutions including HR 3400. The Democrats have basically frozen them out of the process and rejected all their ideas. Obama has made a bogus token gesture to Republicans by looking into tort reform as a pilot program.
Whenever Republicans choose bipartisanship over principle, they lose because Democrats get to set the agenda. What we end up with is small-scale socialism rather than large scale, the effect is still the same, we drift leftwards.
I must admit, the more I see of Jindal, the less impress I become. I still cringe when I think about that Republican rebuttal he made. If Jindal has any presidential aspirations, he is going to have to do a whole lot better.
