Jindal: "If We Want People To Like Us, We Have To Like Them First"
WALLACE: So, Governor, what was stupid about what Romney said?
JINDAL: Well, two things. First, Governor Romney is an honorable and exceptional man. And I'm proud to have campaigned for him across the country but I absolutely reject what he said. Look, we as the Republican Party have to campaign for every single vote.
If we want people to like us, we have to like them first. And, you don't start to like people by insulting them and saying their votes were bought. We are an aspirational party.
Let the Democratic Party be the party that says demography is destiny, that says we are going to divide people by race, by gender, by class. We as a Republican Party, believe our conservative principles are good for every single voter. It's not just a marketing campaign. It's not just having better PR folks. We're going to go and convince and fight for every single vote, showing them we are the party for the middle class, upward mobility. We don't start winning majorities and winning elections by insulting our voters.
