Jindal
11:54 PM on 11/15/2010
At the time of the spill, Jindel did get the run around from Washington on the Food Stamp issue and Obama was furious at Jindel for making an issue of it. He finally wrote the letter mentioned in the story and the resulting publicty forced the Federal Goverment to re-act. At that point they did it quickly to defuse the situation.

Looking back, I remember the Administration suspended booming operations over question concerning saftey equipment on the barges and then compounded the problem by putting an end to drilling for a time in the gulf, despite concerns over the impact it would have to the regeon economically.

All Presidents are obsessed with public perception...and Obama is no different. Jindel's book seems to have hit some nerves in The White House...maybe because they are true.

This article is based on a few captions that have been spun out of context, but look back at what was going on at the time....Jindel's comments are very much reflective of the perceptions and the news of that period.

...or quite possibly because Jindal is a bold faced liar, ask him what his real name is and why he does not use it?

This has been totally disproven.
Thank you.

ahh not by a long shot...Obama can't anything done because he's mentally constipated. he goes this way, then that...alwasy seeking the least worrisome ground, while conctantly worrying about his appearance and pol numbers, as a result his ship is sinking and within a year, you'll hear Dems putting up an alternate for 2012

Piyush Amrit Jindal is no Obama, he can try to act like him, pretend to be him, but unfortunately he is not even close.

Therefore his jealousy fits are only harming him and his attacks are like water on a duck's back, Obama has made the comparison before.

I don't think Piyush will be elected to another term from his lack of political techniques.

I just googled "Bobby Jindal and got "Piyush Amrit "Bobby" Jindal (born June 10, 1971) ".

Another poster asked what is Piyush.

Ya got to love it.

Louisiana's senators and govenor are all for off-shore oil drilling with minimal regulations.

As soon as they have a problem, its management becomes Washington's problem and fault.

The concept of the president "yelling" at Jindal behind the scenes is reassuring. I would like to see him stand up to his competition more often in public.

It is pretty hard for anyone to reverse 8 years of de-regulation and incompetence in the first year. Jindal was complicit with the Bush administration in allowing oil companies to operate under the radar in the Gulf, and we are all aware of the source of Halliburton's impunity.

Obama handled the crisis beautifully, holding BP accountable and not spending Tax. The government also secured the BP's $20 Billion reserved fund, so the Victims Indemnization is guaranteed.

This little man with his little mind has little to offer. He has no credibility or integrity. What a guy!

Keeping it classy. Lied about the Katrina efforts. And then admitted it was false. This guy is allergic to the truth.

Bobby Jindal sure has aged; there is nothing youthful about his appearance now.

'Profiles In Snideness: Mine" by Bobby Jindal. Gonna need a better effort than that if he wants to be President of the United Sates.
