The GOP must "stop being the stupid party." - Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-LA)
Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, the delusional 2016 Republican presidential wannabe, made a complete ass of himself following the National Governor's Association meeting with President Obama on Monday.
With the Republican Governors Association chair, Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), noticeably absent from his assigned duties, the delusional 2016 Republican presidential wannabe seized the opportunity to race over to the cameras assembled outside the White House and launched into a diatribe, accusing President Obama of "raising the white flag" on job growth and turning America into "a minimum wage economy."
As Forrest Gump would say, "Stupid is as stupid does."
Gov. Dan Malloy (D-CT) wasn't going to tolerate Jindal's insolence and delivered a smack-down. Jindal Breaches White House Protocol To Take Shots At Obama:
Connecticut Gov. Dan Malloy rose to challenge Jindal immediately after he spoke to reporters, calling his remarks on Obama waving a white flag “the most insane statement I’ve ever heard.”
Jindal then returned to the microphones to continue his barrage against the Obama administration, saying as Malloy walked off, “I want to make sure he hears a more partisan statement,” and saying Obama should delay the Affordable Care Act mandates. It wasn’t the first time Jindal had used the microphones outside the White House to attack the president, having done the same at last year’s meeting. While a break from protocol, it is a signal to the GOP base that Jindal, a 2016 hopeful, is willing to take a forceful stand against the president.
Yes, because being an insolent asshole is the personality type that the conservative media entertainment complex demands.
Malloy accused Jindal of political grandstanding. ”Here’s a guy who didn’t come to any of the meetings except this one today, and has the nerve to pull that stuff on everyone—ten feet from the West Wing,” the Connecticut governor told TIME. “[H]e doesn’t come to the meetings of the organization, and then he wants to swing for the fences for obviously political reasons. I didn’t mind pushing back.”
The 2016 GOP Clown Car Presidential Primary is going to be a celebration of "the stupid party." We may witness the final death throes of the GOP, as it goes the way of the Whigs and Know Nothings.
