Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a likely candidate for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016 and a would-be reformer of the GOP (see HERE), says Mitt Romney is “absolutely wrong” to blame his defeat in last week’s election on President Obama’s offer of “gifts” to minorities and young people (see HERE).
In a news conference at a meeting of the Republican Governors Association in Las Vegas, Jindal said THIS of Romney’s argument:
Two points on that: One, we have got to stop dividing the American voters. We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent. We need to go after every single vote.
And, secondly, we need to continue to show how our policies help every voter out there achieve the American Dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children an opportunity to be able to get a great education. … So, I absolutely reject that notion, that description. I think that’s absolutely wrong.
