Bobby Jindal, the man who became famous by blasting federal spending on disasters, is begging President Obama for more money:
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is asking President Barack Obama for more federal help as Tropical Storm Isaac approaches the Gulf Coast, urging him to reimburse Louisiana for the full cost of its preparations.
“Given the extraordinary developments of this storm and its approaching impact on the State of Louisiana, I ask that you exercise your discretion to approve the State’s pending request for all emergency protective measures,” Jindal, a Republican, wrote in a letter to Obama. “Further, I ask that you consider a cost-share adjustment to eliminate the State’s non-federal share of the costs for this event.”
Get that? The federal government should pay for all preparations being done in Louisiana. This is one of the conservative movement's shining stars and he's begging the feds for more cash. Hypocrite doesn't even begin to describe this.
