By The Right Scoop


In an interview this morning on Glenn Beck’s radio show, Bobby Jindal said that at a meeting with the President during the gulf oil spill, that he and the President of Plaquemines Parish were told specifically by Obama not to go on TV and criticize him. Jindal says that it was clear Obama was frustrated with the level of criticism he was getting and goes on to accuse Obama of caring more about perception and politics than actually cutting through the red tape and getting things done.

This is interesting, having just finished another election season where Obama lied and smeared Republicans on TV every chance he got. He used that car-in-the-ditch-Slurpee metaphor so much that even the news media was begging for something new.

It’d be nice for once if he lived by the same advice he gave others. Yeah, I’m not holding my breath.

UPDATE: I elaborated more on this in my post at hotair.com and updated this one to reflect the changes.

    Huge differnece between Kaptain KickAss and President Bush. Mr. Bush took all the heat from the media over the Katrina response, and never whined about it. Barack Obama is a squirrelly pantiwaist, unable to withstand the criticism that all Presidents must endure.

      Obama is probably still concerned about 2012 and doesn’t want people to make a big deal about his holding back ships from coming in for weeks. He doesn’t want people to know that he did everything he could to let it get worse before he finally acted. The problem is, he probably will get re-elected. I couldn’t believe it when Clinton was. I thought he was done. Don’t ever underestimate the ignorance of the American people. That is the lesson I have learned.

    And what was the quid pro quo: Obama not criticizing Republicans on TV?

    obama gets off the Air Force Lollipop and proceeds to tell Jindahl not to criticize him

    And we are surpised. Wet tissue paper is thicker than Barky’s skin.

      Jindal had manpower and resources ready to go, and Obama told him he couldn’t do anything to clean up the mess. Jindal had the right to, and cowered under Obama. I see this as being the beat down little puppy dog whining about his master.

    Just FYI: it’s Plaquemines Parish not Plackermans.

    I stopped thinking (let alone ‘worrying’) about anything the current ILLEGAL occupant of OUR HOUSE says or thinks, long ago.

    He is nothing more than the thinly gloved, un-Vasoline’d FINGER of his puppet Master, being used to violate every orifice of our Constitution.

    The current occupant is a non-entity (see Soros’ admonition to the other puppets to “be prepared to jump ship” on him).

    I wish Jindal had said something about it at the time or told Obama to his face he had no right to make that request.

      I dont see Mr. Jindal just taking it. as far as not talking about it at the time, Obama has proven to be a Vindictive Person, so had he come out with that any hopes his state had for Aid, or of the moritorum being lifted, or any number of other things would have been gone in a blink of an eye.

      In politics and in war one must choose their battles wisely, and fight only those they can win….

      Jindal failed to do his state,s business because Obama told him he couldn’t during the spill. He is a spineless politician. He had the right to clean up those beaches. He did what he was told. “stand down little man”. He is just complaining about his master.

        You think so? Hmm.

    Does anyone think there is any possibility that the Obama/Holder regime will file an indictment against C.A.I.R. under the R.I.C.O. statute? I didn’t think so! In 2012 it will happen because of the rigime change that is going to take place right here in the good old U.S. of A.

    I think Jindal should be on Beck’s TV show.
