What can brown do for you?

Mitt Romney's latest remarks about why President Obama was re-elected have sparked some discussion among his public supporters, including this recent comment from Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.

While I'm not a fan of Bobby Jindal's politics, he does have a huge opportunity for power in a Republican party starved for minority outreach. Michael Steele wasn't the right approach and neither was Herman Cain. Jindal's politics preach to the base while his ethnicity allows him leeway that Romney just didn't have.

Heck, if my political principles and ethics were as fluid as Mitt Romney's, I could run for office as a Republican and make out like a bandit. Thank god they're not.
