Jindal: Obama told us not to criticize him on TV

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.
