    Think Progress » Jindal turns down $300 million in stimulus funds for high-speed rail.

    Just add this to the ever-growing list of Jindal's moves. Once a potential candidate for 2012, probably would be unable to even win his own state if he ran in 2012.

    Your assertion that Jindal picked party over the people is not supported by the biased article you linked. The reason he turned it down, is because the federal diaper wasn't big enough for him. If it had been, he would have gladly put on the diaper. Jindal is a hypocrite, in my opinion.

    Bobby is an OK guy, but he is playing politics here, not principles.

    I loved seeing Jindal, who at first protested stimulus money, handing out stimulus checks all over Louisiana on which he'd put his own name.

    This guy is so full of crap. He represents his party well.

    It's going to be fun to watch him lose so badly when he runs for reelection. He's better off not running and running far away from politics.

    That Jindal turns down the money for yet another rail boondoggle (which, incidentally, siphons off tax money that's supposed to go to roads and bridges) is arguably working in favor of the most people.

    Everyone but Jindal was for this. It was going to help the state. It's pitiful to try and defend this obvious choice of politics over the people.
