Jindal: "We Don't Win Elections By Insulting Voters"

On CNN's "The Situation Room" this afternoon, Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-Louisiana) ripped Mitt Romney for said Obama won because he gave his constituency "gifts" to vote for him.

"We need to stop talking down to voters," Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) said on CNN today. "As a Republican party, we need to fight for a 100% of the electorate, not 53%, not 52%, but a 100%. We've got to stop trying to divide people into different groups by race, by gender, by class. Instead, we've got to show why our conservative principles will help them pursue the American dream, enter the middle class, do better."

"This is completely not helpful," Jindal said of Romney's remarks. "This is not where the Republican party needs to go. We need to stop being the dumb party. We need to offer some smart, conservative, intelligent ideas and policies, that's how we win elections."

"We don't win elections by insulting voters," Jindal said.
