Every one is bitching about Naruto's lack of techniques, yet everyone praises and adores Jiraiya. Let's review what both of them do:
Jiraiya: Summon frogs, Rasengan and taijutsu, Hermit Mode
Naruto: Kage Bunshin, Rasengan(With two variations), Summon frogs, taijutsu, Kyubbi
Seems like Naruto is more varied than Jiraiya, so what are you guys bitching about so much again? Jiraiya does have Hermit Mode, but he's 51. Naruto is 15, give him a break to learn new stuff, will ya? Obviously, by his 20's he'll be kicking ass. And he's now kicking ass too, who can defeat a 4+ Tailed Kyubbi? That's right. Maybe it's not so varied as every other character, but Jiraiya has even less and there's even dudes here making threads so we can have a moment of silence for him!
I say everyone should shut the fuck up on the matter, and continue to read the manga. He'll get better. Sheesh.
