Bobby Jindal Has Decided To Let The GOP Be The Stupid Party After All

A little over two years ago, after Democrat Barack Obama soundly defeated Republican Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal admonished fellow Republicans to “stop being the stupid party”. Jindal’s comments were not only directed at Mitt Romney’s politically tone deaf presidential campaign, but also at insensitive GOP Senate candidates like Todd Akin (MO) and Richard Mourdock (IN) who suffered humiliating defeats in red state races after making inexplicable and unconscionable comments about rape.

In January of 2013, when the Republicans were licking their wounds after the November 2012 election, Governor Jindal was lauded as a voice of reason and a potential savior for the GOP. Jindal criticized his party, arguing that they needed to “stop insulting the intelligence of voters”. He minced no words in pointing out that:

We had a number of Republicans damage the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments.

However, in the two and a half years since Jindal called on his party to stop being stupid, he apparently forgot to take his own advice. His dogmatic anti-tax obsession has destroyed Louisiana’s economy, leading to a 1.6 billion dollar budget shortfall. While the fiscal mismanagement of his state is evidence enough that he has not heeded his own words, Jindal’s reaction to the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage erases every last shred of doubt that he has forgotten his own advice not to be the stupid party.

On Friday, Jindal became outraged at the Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide. The angry governor stated:

If we want to save some money lets just get rid of the court.

In his disgust with the court’s ruling Jindal lost his mind. Apparently in Bobby’s mind, nothing says “constitutional conservative” quite like trying to eliminate one of the three branches of government. The court must be abolished because they don’t agree with Jindal that bigotry should prevail over the freedom to marry. In his fit of rage, perhaps Governor Jindal overlooked the fact that getting rid of the Supreme Court is a stupid idea.

In trying to run for president, Bobby Jindal must have decided to give up his fight to keep the Republicans from being the stupid party. Instead he has chosen to lead the charge. Apparently he has calculated his odds, and concluded that the best way to appeal to GOP voters is to present himself as the one candidate who is even stupider than Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee.

Bobby Jindal was right in 2013. The Republican Party does need to stop being the stupid party. Unfortunately, Governor Jindal is not taking his own advice. His suggestion that we should get rid of the Supreme Court is evidence that the Republican Party is still the stupid party, and Bobby Jindal fits right in.

  1. Toddlers have nothing on the GOP.

    In fact, I would trust a two-year-old before I would trust a Reichwinger.

  2. King Bobby the Exorcist decided that more human sacrifice was necessary to bribe the golden Calf he worships.

    We’re dying down here in Louisiana….

  3. Howdy Doody Jindal is a complete idiot who is running around like a chicken with its head off. Hell, even his own state and fellow repugs have had enough of him.

    These crazy repugs are talking about overthrowing the Supreme Court because they did not get their way. Yeah, they love their Country and the Constitution so much they would put the country through a constitutional crisis without a second thought.

  4. I understand that he’s at 0% (yes you read that right) in the polls. He might as well have stayed intelligent–talking stupid sure hasn’t helped him any.

  5. Howdy Doody Jindal and presidential campaign is a total joke that does not compute. He is a total fraud.

  6. I guess it all depends on how Jindal defines “stupid.” Apparently he has no idea he too is “stupid,” but only recognizes it in others, but not himself.

  7. …Teatards destroy everything they touch; and go on the NATIONAL stage touting “Look!!! I have FUBARed my state into complete ruin!!! And now I wanna destroy the whole country!!! ’cause…Jebus told me to!!!”
    …Teatards should be kicked outta this country permanently, starting with the Billionaires Club!!!

  8. I’m from Louisiana and can vouch for the fact that it is almost impossible to find a Jindal supporter here. I think supporters have dwindled to immediate family, staffers, a handful of wingnuts, and maybe a few CEOs, although the business community is by and large fed up with him also.

    Jindal must be the most mentally unbalanced politician in America today. He is out there in Glenn Beck-like la la land.

    His political demise, which is unfolding before our eyes, no doubt has a lot of comedic entertainment value. But boy, he has wrecked Louisiana but good. It is very sad, even tragic, the way he has denied Medicaid expansion, the benefit of which is a no-brainer if ever there was.

    In case you are not that familiar with Jindal, let me just assure you he is the biggest liar around. True words do not pass his lips, and that includes “the” and “and,” to paraphrase a famous writer.

  9. Seeing him on Meet the Press today I saw a delusional man who is parroting talking points with no substance. He cited privatizing charity hospitals as an accomplishment. I read some of these hospitals are closing and emergency care is becoming scarce. He went on about how it is major state to do business in. He will not admit the film industry came there after Katrina to help the state out not his policies. Toad called him out a little but as usual he never followed up with hard questions. Piyush is an idiot. I’m glad he has no chance of winning.

  10. Inflammatory rhetoric and ignorance-based proclamations seem to be essential components for drawing the conservative media spotlight these days.

    Unfortunately, they are also key ingredients in the ‘recipe for disaster’ if your ultimate goal is to be elected POTUS.

  11. Yes, delusional is the operative word here and it applies to basically all the GOP presidential candidates and a high percentage of the GOP base who vote in primaries.

  12. I wonder how, Mr Jindal got to be a Rhodes Scholar? Can’t be A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE TO Follow. Won’t be any good on any future presentation. Jindal blackens this honor.
