    ``There has never been a challenge that the American people, with as little interference as possible by the federal government, cannot handle.'' -- Bobby Jindal, March 24, 2009

    Bobby, stop crying for federal help then. Handle it yourself. The repubs always cry about federal intervention until it affects them.

    The federal government should have stopped oil from a spill 50 miles offshore from ever reaching the coastline. What have they done othe than whine about someone taking blame?

    No state has the equipment or the resources to deal with this problem. Besides this isn't just a Louisiana problem. This will affect the entire Gulf Coast and if it gets into the Jet stream perhaps even the East Coast.

    I'm no fan of Obama but his lack of vision and determination to help stop this problem is sickening. I feel he didn't really grasp the scoop of the disaster until it was to late. He suggested that the Bush admen was at fault. How long is he going to try to pen everything on him?

    BTW Louisiana local shrimpers and fishermen or using their boats and dedicating their time and money to try to protect our wetlands. Folks from MS - FLA are also doing their best to protect their beautiful beaches but you know we aren't dealing with a spill but a gusher. I loved General Honore suggestion (He is the guy that the NOLA recovery really moving after Katrina. He said we should seize all of BP's assets in this country and charge them 100 million a day the disaster continues. That would light a fire under BP.

    Jindal gave out Federal Government Stimulus checks throughout Louisiana, on which he had put his name.

    I gotta go with Jindal. Like Katrina, the magnitude of this disaster far exceeds LA's ability to deal with it.

    This is a poor example of attempting to expose alleged hypocrisy. The Federal Government has a Constitutional responsibility to defend the nation from threats and the magnitude of this oil spill can arguably qualify as such.

    SHIT!

    I had no idea that there was a chance that the oil would become airborne and get into the jet stream!
