impaler: Jindal, a Republican, shot back late Monday in a letter to the Obama administration that the declaration fell short of the help he was requesting.

It's nice to see Republicans be all bootstrappy and shat.

Give him all he asks and more, and make sure there is a bumper sticker on every piece of equipment that says "WE built this."


How about "we ALL built this" LOLZ socialism helps make capitalistic countries work. Or at least not fly off the rails.
 
2012-08-28 08:30:12 AM
If Jindal was a real Republican, he'd be mobilizing the state police to actively fight the boots that heathen Democrat wants to put on the ground. He'd have them shoot first and ask questions later.
 
2012-08-28 08:30:12 AM
How many times have Republican governors and senators protested overreaching federal influence, only to accept federal aid, ask for more federal aid, then complain when the federal aid isn't up to their expectations?

/has to be a lot
//would be really nice (on both sides of the aisle) if principles didn't vanish when the wallet comes out
 
2012-08-28 08:30:43 AM
Give them the money. Just require Jindal to do a photo-op shaking hands with Obama.
 
2012-08-28 08:30:55 AM

domino324: I love it, Obama offers boots on the ground, and Jindal is all "no no, just cut us a check for everything we spend!"

What's he planning on paying for?

PC LOAD LETTER: andhravodu: Lost Thought 00: It's not wasteful spending if it benefits Republicans.

Please don't be obtuse. The dude is asking for help to the state he governs. It's an entire state with people who have experienced tragedy not too far out. This isn't a my party vs. other party moment

Give me a fracking break. He rejected the expansion of Medicaid, which also helps people in the state he governs. Not affording medical care is pretty damn tragic. Just not at "dramatic" as a Hurricane. It really doesn't matter if you are miserable because you lost your house or because you can't afford medical care you need. Sometimes the two are related, as well.


Sure he has his problems. But in case of an impending storm which needs immediate attention, are you looking to make this our guy vs. their guy?

This.
Also, Bobby is staying home to watch over and protect his state, instead of grandstanding at the RNC. I don't seem to recall clearly, what did the former Gov of LA do during Katrina? Wasn't that guy a Democrat party guy? Again, it's not about Party, it's about People.

Oh, and instead of spending how Much Fed money on Moving Fed people into the state, wouldn't just underwriting the cost of Local response teams be less expensive, and more effective?

Go be butthurt somewhere else crybaby. Louisiana will get what it needs (unlike the last time we had this problem) and asschunks like Jindal and his supporters will get the taunting and mockery they deserve.

Then the asschunks will go right back to bleating about how the government can't do anything right while cashing their government checks.

Obama offered complete assistance, but Jindal says he doesn't want that. Jindal wants a blank check.

They got 14 billion to rebuild their levies. The Corp of Engineers says the walls will protect against the projected surge. If you get blasted again, it's just your God telling you to move somewhere else.

My God is pretty mellow. Sits on his mighty throne that is a lot more comfortable that it looks, sees your God calling on his cell phone and put the phone down, goes back to watching premium cable on his J. Chick Jumbotron. "Thank me for Caller ID" He says. "It's that attention whore god again."

Give them the aid they need, then publicly call them on demanding Federal welfare.

Why doesn't Obama just send in the army to make sure we don't have another bad thing happen?
 
2012-08-28 08:39:00 AM
Sure - turn this natural disaster into a partisan play. Obama's defining moment!? Nope - his defining moment was the killing of Bin Laden....and we all know how much he had to do with that.

Because if Jindal had any guts, he'd mobilize the state police to prevent that.

Harry Freakstorm: They got 14 billion to rebuild their levies. The Corp of Engineers says the walls will protect against the projected surge. If you get blasted again, it's just your God telling you to move somewhere else.


I used to work for the Corps of Engineers. I've seen the document signed by the then Governor (R), the senator and mayor of New Orleans (D) stating that they wouldn't increase the height of the levees as to not ruin the aesthetic value of New Orleans.

What they really didn't want to do is imminent domain the two blocks of houses it would have taken to increase the levee ALL along lake pontatrain! When you double the height of a levee you triple its width.
 
2012-08-28 08:40:20 AM
What's all the fuss about Isaac anyways? It's not even a hurricane yet and even if it reaches hurricane strength, it's only forecasted to go up to Cat 2 max. Not exactly Katrina level strength.

Bobby is staying home because he wasn't invited. The storm just gives him a convenient cover story and allows him to be a martyr.

No Jindal is. Before it even hits he is more interested in trying to set up make the feds look bad than in the people's welfare.
 
2012-08-28 08:41:44 AM
Perfect set up. Now when a hurricane hits he will blame Obama for not helping.

F*ck him and his anti volcano monitoring.

During his 2009 GOP Response to Obama's ''State of the Nation'' speech, Bobby Jindal said during Katrina, he helped a sheriff battle government red tape to rescue stranded victims. The sheriff was there, but Bobby wasn't. (new window)

The best part is how conservatives accuse liberals of living in a fantasy world of rainbows and unicorns. Yet time and time again when disaster strikes, the first place these anti-government dickholes run to is the government.

And the best part? The government will help out here and not demand a dime in return from Louisiana, unlike say if it were a private enterprise. Whose philosophy is pure fantasy again?

ole' Jindal loves Obama and the Federal Government now -- now that there is some dollars coming down the pipeline. lol

I laugh at Jindal's humiliation. Like all Republicans, he deserves to be publicly mocked for his short-sightedness and total lack of ability to deal with the real world. Sorry, Bobby.

Here's how you make the world a better place: take all of the supa-fat idiots who voted for you, peel them out of their Hoverrounds, tie them together into a raft, and float to Galt's Gulch when the levee breaks?

You're right. both sides r teh bad. So, which Republican should we vote for? The GOP pick or those Republicans that lost in the primaries and now consider themselves "more of a Libertarian?"

The Free Market decided you didn't pray hard enough, so you're getting hit by a hurricane. Don't insult its Invisible Hand further by asking for government bailouts. Instead, have faith in its Divine Bootstraps.

"However, the state's original request for federal assistance ... included a request for reimbursement for all emergency protective measures. The federal declaration of emergency only provides for direct federal assistance."


No, that's a republican statement. He's worried about the money NOW. The people aren't nearly important as they money.

Bootstrap it Jindal. Show us how it is done. The Federal Gov is not under any obligation to repay states for emergency preparedness measures, that's your job, do it. Pass a law allowing more Federal control if you don't like that, you socialist. GO AHEAD DO IT.

We've gone over this. He was recounting an exchange with Harry Lee he had. Harry Lee was never one to not rant and argue well after an issue had been settled. The whole faux controversy is a good example of how something can be nebulous enough that it can be spun into a lie.

Except that the Governor of that state you mentioned *is* making it a "my party vs. other party" moment.

It would behoove you to not be so obtuse to this.
