I'm generally okay with this strategy. I think Jindal is right that the GOP must make the case as to why it's the better choice for the middle class. But I would stipulate that it isn't the GOP that has defined it self as being for "big anything." It has allowed the left and their accomplices in the MSM to define them that way. And there is the real battle.
I've said my first choice for 2016 would be Marco Rubio, but I'm starting to think more and more about Jindal. He has accomplished so much in a failed state. But the early Jeb Bush talk is frightening. Jindal and Rubio (and Paul Ryan and Scott Walker) are the faces of New Conservatism. Bring young guys who, if turned loose, can make the small government, pro-middle class GOP case. But that shouldn't mean caving on conservative beliefs. And I do disagree with Jindal and Walker when they argue Mitt Romney was off base in saying President Obama bribed certain blocks of voters. That is exactly what happened.
I suppose you can argue that Jindal is right, that saying it out loud isn't wise. But not believing it is dangerous.
