Indian-American Bobby Jindal has asked his partymen to end their navel gazing over the 2008 election debacle and don the role as the opposition to Barack Obama and the Democratic Party.
Lets agree on this tonight,the time for talking about the past is now over, Jindal,the charismatic Governor of Louisiana told 1,200 people attending a House GOP fundraiser here on Tuesday,while Obama was addressing his second post-election press conference at the White House at the same time.
It has been healthy for Republicans to look in the mirror. It has been healthy for us to realise and admit the mistakes of the past… We have done that quite a bit. I personally have done that quite a bit since the election last fall. Its now been close to five months since the last election, he said at the USD 2,500-per-plate dinner.
The 37-year-old Republican leader,widely considered a potential 2012 GOP presidential candidate,added: Its time to declare our time of introspection and navel gazing officially over…. Its time to get on with the business of charting Americas future. So as of now,be it hereby resolved,that we will focus on Americas future,and on standing up for fiscal sanity… before it is too late, Jindal said.
