Accompanying the excerpts are the preceding comments and the excerpts which are below:

SPEECH EXCERPTS: Gov. Jindal to Refute President Obama’s Liberal Vision for America 

Governor Bobby Jindal will deliver a keynote address tonight at the Republican National Committee’s Winter Meeting in Charlotte.  

On Monday, President Obama laid out his liberal vision of and for America. Governor Jindal will offer a rebuttal this evening and he will outline the direction for a new Republican Party – a party focused on growth. 

Below are excerpts from the Governor’s speech. An embargoed copy of the Governor’s remarks will be provided prior to the speech. 

Excerpts from Governor Jindal’s Address 

“America is not the federal government.  In fact, America is not much about government at all.  In America, government is one of those things you have to have, but you sure don’t want too much of it.” 

“Today’s conservatism is completely wrapped up in solving the hideous mess that is the federal budget, the burgeoning deficits, the mammoth federal debt, the shortfall in our entitlement programs…even as we invent new entitlement programs. We seem to have an obsession with government bookkeeping.  This is a rigged game, and it is the wrong game for us to play.” 

“We as Republicans have to accept that government number crunching – even conservative number crunching – is not the answer to our nation’s problems.” 

“…any serious proposal to restrain government growth is immediately deemed ‘not-serious’ in Washington.  The balanced budget is deemed ‘not-serious’ in Washington.  Term limits are deemed ‘not-serious’ in Washington.  Capping federal growth by tying it to private sector economic growth is deemed ‘not-serious’ in Washington.  The truth is nothing serious is deemed serious in Washington.” 

“Instead of worrying about managing government, it’s time for us to address how we can lead America… to a place where she can once again become the land of opportunity, where she can once again become a place of growth and opportunity.  We should put all our eggs in that basket.” 

“Our objective is to grow the private sector.  We need to focus our efforts on ideas to grow the American economy, not the government economy. If you take nothing else away from what I say today, please understand this – We must not become the party of austerity.  We must become the party of growth.” 

“The Republican Party must become the party of growth, the party of a prosperous future that is based in our economic growth and opportunity that is based in every community in this great country and that is not based in Washington, DC.” 

“The Democrats promise to be the party of “more from government,” but they are actually the party of less.  They are the party of economic contraction, austerity and less from the economy.  The Republican Party is the party of “more,” the party that creates “more from the economy.”” 

“…we have to recalibrate the compass of conservatism.  We do not need to change what we believe as conservatives – our principles are timeless. But we do need to re-orient our focus to the place where conservatism thrives – in the real world beyond the Washington Beltway.” 

“We believe in planting the seeds of growth in the fertile soil of your economy, where you live, where you work, invest, and dream, not in the barren concrete of Washington.” 

“I am not one of those who believe we should moderate, equivocate, or otherwise abandon our principles.  This badly disappoints many of the liberals in the national media of course.” 

“No, the Republican Party does not need to change our principles…but we might need to change just about everything else we do.” 

“We can either go down the Government path or the American path.  The left is trying to turn the government path into the American path.  Shame on us if we let them do that.” 

“…free individuals....taking risks....building businesses....inventing things from thin air...and passing immutable values from one generation to the next.....that is the root of America's greatness.” 

“And that is our mission as we build a new Republican Party.  We must shift the eye line and the ambition of our conservative movement away from managing government and toward the mission of growth.”
