    Jindal: More urgency needed in oil spill response
    Lousiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says more urgency needed in response to BP oil spill


    On Wednesday June 30, 2010, 7:58 am
    NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Gov. Bobby Jindal says he will push for greater urgency in oil spill response efforts when he meets with Vice President Joe Biden.

    The governor has frequently criticized the federal government's role in cleaning up oil from BP's well in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Biden was to meet with spill officials in New Orleans on Tuesday morning, then fly to Pensacola, Fla.

    Jindal on Tuesday repeated his contention that federal officials "either need to lead or get out of the way."

    Interesting. Yet Jindal cannot seem to put the resources that he has into action.

    because the feds won't let him.

    They get in the way of all his ideas.

    Obama has approved of every request Jindal made. Too bad Jindal is too busy whining for the nanny state govt to save him instead of doing his job and submitting requests for all 6000 NG's he has at his disposal

    Bobby is a screamer, not a doer.
