    Think Progress » Jindal blocks non-existent state funding for ACORN.

    State, federal officials cut off money to ACORN - Louisiana Politics | State Legislature News - NOLA.com

    Nice try anyway Bobby! :lol:

    Man, now where have I seen Jindal taking credit for things he hasn't done before, oh yeah:

    Think Progress » Jindal takes credit for stimulus, presents constituents with jumbo-sized stimulus check.

    What a fucking snake, but unsurprising. :lol:

    Hey Bobby! Where did all that money go to anyway?

    Think Progress » Jindal spares money for New Orleans Saints while slashing health care and education funding.

    Sorry Johnny that you can't read! Maybe you can go see the Saints if they aren't price gouging you!

    Typical Republican. Millions of dollars to very highly paid athletes, not a cent for children's health care.

    What I find most interesting about the whole thing is his whole "oil snakesman" approach. I really do hope he runs in 2012, should prove interesting when all of this stuff really does come to light.

    Well, he might have a problem with a certain conservative I know in Bozeman, Montana. His statement concerning the stupidity of $50,000,000 for the study of volcanos did not sit well with him. In fact, many conservatives I know on the West Coast found that statement really offensive.

    I hope should he run on the national stage they look at his "leadership" during the last budget crisis... which consisted of repeatedly threatening vetoes without actually offering guidance as to what he would find acceptable.

    He's turned out to be the stereotypical politician. A chicken plant opens and Bobby Jindal is there in a flash. A crisis that requires leadership occurs and he's off in Iowa setting up a primary bid. I am not a fan of the guy.

    I didn't realize facts were partisan bullshit.

    Here's what happened:

    Jindal issued an exec order to keep any money from ACORN who's HQ is in New Orleans.

    The Problem with that order?

    They weren't giving any money to ACORN. It would be like a general sending out troops into the field where there are no opposing forces.

    since those items had nothing to do with the top of the op they were added for paritsan reasons, nothing more
    they had nothing to do with the topic of ACORN funding
    and the order was not to cut off funding so much as to insure there wouldnt be future funding

    Hard to be future funding when the group isn't going to exist in the near future due to no funding. Unless of course you do think he's going to give them funding. Plus, no Democrat at this point is going to give them funding unless they want to lose a election.

    This is what we call political grandstanding.
