Gov. Bobby Jindal is back with some more advice for his Republican Party: quit spending so much time criticizing Obamacare.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Jindal said:

“There are still too many folks who would tell you the president’s unpopular, Obamacare is unpopular and when your opponent is self-destructing you stay out of his way — just make this election a referendum on that. . . . I think that’s a huge mistake. If we want to earn the majority, we have to be offering detailed policy solutions, detailed ideas of what we would do differently. I don’t think it is enough to say, ‘Just repeal Obamacare.’

Such strange advice, coming from someone who seems so very obsessed with repealing Obamacare.

Just a few days ago, Jindal wrote an op-ed in Politico, “Obamacare is anything but compassionate.”

Last November, when Obama visited New Orleans, Jindal made a point of attacking the president’s health reform bill.

In October 2013, Jindal appeared on Fox News to attack Obamacare.

Last September, Jindal attacked Obamacare in a speech at the National Press Club.

Last August, Jindal wrote a column for the Fox News website, “ObamaCare’s ‘navigator’ program ripe for disaster.”

Only the month before, in July, Jindal and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker co-wrote an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal: “Unworkable ObamaCare.”

That month, Jindal also wrote a column in the New Orleans Times-Picayune about the Medicaid expansion portion of Obamacare.

In November 2012, he wrote a column for the Baton Rouge Business Report, “Problem with Obamacare is the design, not the execution.”

I could go on. But, please, tell me why does anyone in the Washington news media regard Jindal as a serious person?

One thought on “Jindal should take his own advice on GOP’s Obamacare attacks

  1. That’s the million dollar question Bob, isn’t it? What’s a shame is how none of the national media will not take a look at what he’s done to the state and how he “balances” his budgets by sweeping various programs for the extra amounts he needs for his budgets.
