If I was President, I would be helping in the cleanup. I'd be down at those beaches helping oil covered birds and cleaning up tar balls.
Instead he playes golf and eats in fancy restaraunts?
If he got stuck into help the cleanup , at least the people would have way more respect for the guy.
BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — Gov. Bobby Jindal said he has repeatedly asked for but has not received information about oilspill cleanup plans to be launched by the federal government and the company in charge of cleaning the slick in the Gulf of Mexico.
"I've asked several times over the last few days for a detailed plan in terms of a quantifiable number of people and resources that will be deployed to help clean up and protect our coast. We haven't gotten those plans yet," the governor said Thursday.
State lawmakers complained Thursday about the federal response to the vast spill, which was closing in on the coast Thursday.
While Jindal wouldn't outright criticize federal efforts, he repeatedly noted that he's asked for more equipment and people to beef up containment and cleanup efforts — and more information.
Jindal said he's asked Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the Coast Guard and oil company BP PLC "to see more boots on the ground."
