Bobby Jindal Rips Republicans, Tells Them to Prepare for Revolt Against Obama's 'Leftward March'

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal rips the current state of the Republican party in a new piece in Politico, and says it better be ready for this:

Jindal"At some point, the American public is going to revolt against the nanny state and the leftward march of this president. I don’t know when the tipping point will come, but I believe it will come soon. Why? Because the left wants: The government to explode; to pay everyone; to hire everyone; they believe that money grows on trees; the earth is flat; the industrial age, factory-style government is a cool new thing; debts don’t have to be repaid; people of faith are ignorant and uneducated; unborn babies don’t matter; pornography is fine; traditional marriage is discriminatory; 32 oz. sodas are evil; red meat should be rationed; rich people are evil unless they are from Hollywood or are liberal Democrats; the Israelis are unreasonable; trans-fat must be stopped; kids trapped in failing schools should be patient; wild weather is a new thing; moral standards are passé; government run health care is high quality; the IRS should violate our constitutional rights; reporters should be spied on; Benghazi was handled well; the Second Amendment is outdated; and the First one has some problems too. Their philosophy does not work and it got our nation into the mess it’s in."

  1. 32 oz soda IS evil you dumbsh*t!

    Love how he throws stones, especially where evolution and global warming are concerned, and goes on as if his party is the centered-mild party of intelligent people.

  2. Mr. Jindal, pander all you want to your GOP base, but they'll never accept you because they will always see you as a towelhead.

  3. I'll buy it all except the flat earth thing. That's strictly right wing.

  4. Sure thing "Bobby" (Piyush). Change your name all you want, doesn't change the fact that the GOP will only accept you for as long as you "know your place". I think you just overstepped that mark. Now see what they really think of you.

  5. The "nanny state" policies are there to benefit stupid people like him. You would think he would be flattered. Very seldom have I ever met a smart person opposed to "nanny state" policies. Because they know that those policies are not there for them, but for the stupid people who need to be reminded not to put their finger in the electrical socket.

  6. Wow, this comes from a man who's own party thinks he's a terrorist.

    Way to go. Right up there with GOProud.

  7. Sorry Bobby - and sorry to us as well - Obama is right-of-center, and he's moving even further to the right.

  8. Obama is actually centrist which is the amusing part. The GOP and the Tea Party specifically is reactionary which is just one step away from fascism. Whenever you hear the code words: "return", "bring back", "restore", you have a reactionary.

  9. This comes from a governor of a state that begged the Feds for help during Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill?! Looks like Louisiana benefited greatly from the "nanny" state he despises.

  10. It reads like a poem, mostly out of his fantasy. He must be talking about someone else other than Obama. Obama is hardly a leftist. He is rather a centrist. He is cautious, shall we say conservative, but of course not the kind of extremist Bobby wants to be president.

  11. interesting how the gop and teabaggers haven't gone after him, after all he isn't white oh thats right, he's one of them.

  12. This might be a blessing in disguise. Jindal is far-right, and the more extreme he makes his party look the better it is for democrats. Also a lot of those comments are blatantly ignorant, and people aren't all that dumb. Those comments reflect poorly on the GOp as a whole.

  13. The applicable word here, at least to me, is "sad".

  14. "Obama's leftward march"


    - "Obamacare" = rtomneycare created by the conservative heritage foundation and championed by all repubs as a capitalist answer to hillarycare/ nationalized healthcare

    - Obama supported the bail out of the banks/ capitalism as vs what should have been done = natioonalized US banking system and make bankers take the hit like Iceland did and Iceland is doing ganagbusters economically now

    - Obama did not prosecute war criminals bush, cheney, rumsfeld, rice, etc

    - Obama ended the pirate kidnappers, got osama bin Laden, got Kaddafi, has decimated al queda = all of which would have seen repubs screaming for a mount rushmore placement if happened under a repub

    Obama is CENTRIST and actually is as conservative in many ways as Nixon and Reagan.

    It is due to jundal's party going so far crazy right that Obama's conservatism is now the center

    ^ despite that...Obama is 1000x better than a modern repub though Eisenhower would be better and more liberal than Obama (sad)

  15. PS

    an argument can be made that Obama had to be CENTRIST

    That the 1st African American could not have been anything but centrist because the cons scream socialist kenyan now but if Obama had been a Liberal Liberal then heads really would have exploded

  16. Jindal needs psychiatric help.

    Posted by: Tom | Jun 19, 2013 4:04:39 PM

  17. Liberals who gain lots of power always become totalitarian and fascist. Obama is no exception. It's amazing how Jekyll and Hyde Obama is. That he can make convincing arguments to spy on or kill americans while coming across as a hipster dad. Obama is what a total sociopath looks and sounds like.

  18. Jindal/Rubio 2016!!!

    Oh, what a diverse party the Republicans have....when you add in Herman, Mr 999 (and we aint talking size...well, I don't know, and don't want to know)

    I wonder if Piyush Jindal had kept his real name would the right-wingers down in Lou'siana still have elected him?

    He should have gone the Creole route and changed his name to Piyush Lepieux.

  19. Since it seems his infamously dull speech rebutting Obama's state of the union address didn't kill his political career, I'm thinking this screed just might be the death knell. The quote above is just a snippet, the whole thing reads like the ravings of a middle school kid. Sure the anti-Democratic swipes are absurdly untrue, but his attacks on the Republican establishment were just as silly. He says the Republican establishment wants to become pro-abortion for example, which is about as untrue as saying the Democrats believe the earth is flat. It was an incredibly childish, ineffective and humiliating rant from someone who desperately wants to lead a national party.

  20. Looks like he's been snorting too many bottle of Louisiana hot sauce.

  21. So long as the opponents you're fighting are primarily figments of your imagination, you remain handicapped against the real people who oppose your policies.

    This is true of the Democratic leadership in the Senate, too. They seem to think if they keep being nice and nicer the Republicans will come around. No. Those reasonable Republicans are just as fantastic as Jindal's left.

  22. It looks like he's planning on running in 2016. I'm not sure these talking points will all be current by then. There are several issues that are falling off the radar. Probably the big issue in '16 will be health care because both parties will be attempting to reform and alter Obamacare. As we know from Europe, once health care becomes a national issue it's perpetually an issue. Probably half the time in debate in the UK parliament is spent arguing over the NHS. In foreign policy, Iran will probably be a major issue.

  23. "The quote above is just a snippet, the whole thing reads like the ravings of a middle school kid."

    You just summed up 95% of conservative arguments. It's a shame their elementary-level educated bases in rural states like LA see this as genius.

  24. "Traditional marriage is discriminatory", no, Bobby, but demanding that only your "traditions" be followed by those who do not subscribe to them is.

  25. @ Kev C

    it is recommended that you look up the definition of the word fascist and fascism

    1 halmark of fascism, publicly stated by Fascist Musolini and exampled by fascist Hitler is fascists governments act in and for the best interest of Large business interests. An example would be the concentration camps where people where Jews etc were used as free slave labor with each camp producing something specific for a specific singular business interest from gears to whatever and the mass killings were of those deemed not able to work to begin with babies, elderly, sickly to those unable to work anymore everyone else eventually in the camps because fresh batches were being rounded up and brought in daily to replace the "work force"

    Another halmark of Fascism is extreme nationalism to propagandize the general population

    ^ those 2 things alone let alone other aspects of fascism smacks of modern day repubs. In fact many US nazi sympathizers tried to overthrow FDR and institute a FASCIST pro business pro Nazi regime but failed due to a military person turning rat and spilling the beans against Prescott bush and man y other US business people of the day
