Bobby Jindal thinks that prospective Republican candidates for 2016 should “get their head examined” and said that Republicans should “stop being the stupid party,” in recent comments.

Jindal, who has long been rumored to have national ambitions, appears to believe the GOP has been goaded into fights with President Obama and the Democrats on issues they can’t seem to win on:

A majority of American voters think that the government is trying to do too much. They want smaller government yet they still voted for President Obama — that means we’re not winning the conversation. We’re not presenting our ideas. We’re not in that debate as well as we should be,” Jindal said on Fox News.

Does Jindal have a point here? Are Republicans being maneuvered into fighting Democrats over issues that Democrats can win elections on?
