Daniel, the problem is that Mitt was right. And Jindal and the rest of you guys are doing nothing but further alienating - insulting, one might say - the base. If you think too many of the base stayed home in 2012, wait and see what happens in 2016 if the GOP spends the next four years pushing some kind of amnesty and 'outreach' to illegal immigrants, trying to be 'Santa Claus' to the same constituencies that the Democrats give all these freebies to. The message of conservatism already reaches out to *everyone* where they are - the GOP steps all over it when they stray, and your/Jindal's solution is to stray farther - to become even more 'moderate' (read 'liberal'), and the response will be to lose even more of the base, and gain little.
