Bobby Jindal SC Jindal: GOP should change ‘just about everything’

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (OfficialWire) — Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is calling on the Republican Party to “recalibrate the compass of conservatism” as party leaders on Thursday promised fundamental changes to help stave off future losses.

The governor will deliver the keynote address at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting Thursday night in Charlotte, becoming the latest high-profile conservative from outside Washington to call for sweeping changes inside the GOP. In speech excerpts released earlier in the day, Jindal says the GOP doesn’t need to change its values but “might need to change just about everything else we do.”

“We do not need to change what we believe as conservatives — our principles are timeless,” Jindal says. “But we do need to re-orient our focus to the place where conservatism thrives: in the real world beyond the Washington Beltway.”

Hours before the speech, Republican leaders promised to release in March a report, dubbed the “Growth and Opportunity Project,” outlining recommendations on party rules and messaging designed to appeal to a rapidly changing American electorate. President Barack Obama’s November victory was fueled, in part, by overwhelming support from the nation’s Hispanic, Asian and African-American communities.

“Losing is not fun. We want to win,” said GOP strategist Sally Bradshaw, who is among five people appointed by RNC Chairman Reince Priebus to craft the report.

“I think you’re going to see a very renewed, aggressive effort by this party to put on a different face,” Bradshaw said. “We are going to go into areas that we do not go into and see folks that we do not see.”

      You are so right this pussy footing around is getting the republicans nowhere.

      • They agreed not to fight voter fraud in the courts so now they are silent about all the fraud and they lose the election. Becoming a second party of entitlements is not the answer and you would still lose. The entitlement people and illegal voters are still going to vote Democrat. I wish we had a George Soros type with money to buy or start some valid news organizations. Too many people believe all the lies. If you dont fignt like these people do you are at the disadvantage and will always lose.

    WE know the GOP has to get their act together, but WE don't need YOU to tell us!!!

      Jindal is a RINO and the Ex hindu should keep his trap shut he is like that fat ass jungle buny lover Christe.

      • He sees things as they work in his own country. I think he really isnt a conservative – just an opportunist at best and they go with whatever they think the flow is.
