Jindal: GOP Needs to Stop Saying 'Stupid Things'

In the wake of Mitt Romney’s failed presidential bid, and subsequent comments about President Obama’s “gifts” to minorities and students, Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal said the GOP needs to stop saying “stupid things.”

Echoing his comments from earlier in the week, Jindal, the chairman of the Republican Governor Association, said that although he was proud to campaign for Romney, he disagreed with his recent remarks.

“I absolutely reject what he said,” Jindal said on Fox News Sunday. “We as the Republican Party have to campaign for every vote and if we want people to like us we have to like them first, and, you don't start to like people by insulting them and saying their votes were bought.”

 

Jindal said that the party needs to do a better job picking candidates who do not say “offensive” things, referencing Senate candidates Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, both of whom drew sharp criticism for their comments about rape and pregnancy.

“We also don't need to be saying stupid things,” he said. “Look, we had candidates in Indiana and Missouri that said offensive things that not only hurt themselves and lost us two Senate seats but also hurt the Republican Party across the board.”
