Mitt, the mechanical suit, never really liked his fellow Americans. Now they're returning the favor.

Jindal expressed irritation at Romney's remarks that President Barack Obama won votes by offering "gifts" to African-Americans, Hispanics and young voters. Jindal linked the latest Romney comments to those at a closed door fund-raiser in May that argued that 47 percent of Americans were "victims" dependent on government and would never vote for him.

"I don't think we advance this discussion or debate by insulting folks," Jindal said. "Look, the Republicans need to stick to our principles, but we need to treat other people with respect. Even those we don't agree with, we need to show them we respect them and their beliefs. We can disagree without being disagreeable. Republicans said a lot of dumb things. We need to condemn the remarks."

Among those dumb things, Jindal said, were comments from Republican Senate candidates in Indiana and Missouri about rape and abortion; both candidates lost their bids by wide margins in races that were previously close.

He outlined seven lessons Republicans should learn in order to move forward: "Stop looking backward; Compete for every single vote; Reject identity politics; Stop being the stupid party; Stop insulting the intelligence of voters; Quit "big" and Focus on people, not government."
