    Apparently, as I understand it, with Jindal refusing a portion of the federal aid money, Louisiana will receive $3.6 billion instead of the original $3.7 billion.

    I could be wrong on that, so if anyone can post contradictory information, please do so.

    Oh......that's SO much better.........

    He's taking 0.1 Billion less than what he asked for........great.......since he's refusing a little bit of the money, then I guess he's justified in voting against it.

    It's his JOB to get money to help his state.

    Can't fault him for doing that.

    I know almost nothing about the guy, and what little I saw left me less than impressed, but honestly folks..give the guy a break.

    He also LIED about the sheriff story.

    he was 75 miles from that town that day, the sheriff is not longer alive so no one cna ask him if its true.


    Jindal just killed his carreer.

    so if no one can confirm or deny it, how do you justify calling it a lie, liar?

    the more I read his speech and listen to the political pundits on all sides, there seems to be a unanimous idea that Jindal's speech was so bad and so antagonistic that he may never recover from this to get onto the national stage. Can't say that makes me upset, but I'd love to see him debate Obama and get his ass handed to him
