Quibbling with Jindal’s Roadmap

I like Ron Paul and think he is a very smart man...that said, I am not sure I would want him for President. What I absolutely think is that the GOP did a GREAT disservice to Rep Paul and his supporters at the convention. At the very least Paul should have been invited to speak. Do I think he would have accepted, probably not but that is not the point. He deserves the acknowledgement and respect that he has earned. Secondly, his supporters and delegates should have been seated and allowed to vote. These two things may have calmed the waters enough to get them to RELUCTANTLY support Romney as the only alternative to Obama. Without Rep. Paul's people and the hard core Conservatives...we lost and are now stuck with Obama. Shame on us.

“I plan to say some things that may challenge your assumptions,” warned Louisiana Governor and rumored 2016 contender Bobby Jindal. “You may not agree with all of it, but that’s ok, ours is a party that can handle real discussions.”

Challenge accepted, governor.

One of Jindal’s big takeaways, as I understand it, was that to win, we must “re-calibrate the compass of conservatism.” “Our principles are timeless,” he clarified. However, “we do need to re-orient our focus to the place where conservatism thrives – in the real world beyond the Washington Beltway.”

On this point, the governor is absolutely correct. Republicans...
