Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal had some strong words for his Republican colleagues at the Republican National Committee’s Winter Meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina, saying he’s tired of the GOP being the “stupid party” among his comments to his colleagues.

He was the keynote speaker at this year’s meeting and took aim at a variety of groups.  First, his own party, focusing on the likes of Missouri senate candidate Todd Akin:

“We’ve got to stop being the stupid party.  And I’m serious.  It’s time for a new Republican Party that talks like adults.  It’s time for us to articulate our plans and our visions for America in real terms.  It’s no secret we had a number of Republicans that damaged the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comments.  I’m here to say we’ve had enough of that.”

He then took aim at Democrats and so-called “Republicans-In-Name-Only,” more commonly known as RINOs:

If you happen to believe in higher taxes, if you believe in more debt, if you believe in more government spending, if you believe in weakness abroad, and if you believe in taking guns from law-abiding citizens, well, first, I might suggest you are at the wrong dinner tonight.

He also went after the Obama administration on debt control and the size of government.  Governor Jindal is widely considered a 2016 presidential candidate.
