In a state where even the lawn in front of the governor's mansion is sponsored by Dow, the flood board's lawsuit has faced a massive pushback. No one has been more forceful in their opposition to lawsuit and in the defense of the oil companies than Jindal

The article states: "The reality is the governor who has vetoed the renewal of a cigarette tax because he's so anti-tax—and even this legislature overrode that veto—but this anti-tax governor wants taxpayers to pay to fix what the most profitable industry in the world damaged?," says Barry. "Am I missing something?"

Is it possible that Bobby Jindal worships two masters: Big Oil AND Big Tobacco? Or is he just trying to impress his anti-tax tea party supporters? A state that has as many issues to deal with as Louisiana needs a Governor who represents people --not corporations.

Booby Jindal, you sir are definitely not the Kingfish. I thought, here's an intelligent man with some fresh ideas. What a disappointment you have become. I don't think there's any chance you will be assassinated as Long was. Long was a cut above you sir. He was poised to run against FDR for the POTUS. In fact sir, many of Long's ideas were adopted by FDR. You have fallen under the spell of the Louisiana elite. Enjoy the ride. Just take care you don't wind up in one of the back bayous where you can't the drink the water.

This is nothing but a load of human crap! Jindal is smoking some scary stuff! I hope he does win the 2016 GOP nomination. His track record will speak for itself to the votes. Pandering to the tea party want get him elected in 2016.

Bobby Jindal bought and paid for by Big Oil. Just like most of Washington.

This is what happens when stupid people vote. You really have to hand it to the repubs: They screw the poor and middle class (what's left of it) and yet somehow convince them that they are looking out for them. Makes you wonder how much longer this country can exist with so many stupid people being sucked in by the party of NO.
