BP Oil Spill: Gov. Jindal Asks for Permission to Build Barrier Islands
As thick oil flows into the sensitive marshes of the Louisiana coast, Gov. Bobby Jindal called on the White House and BP today to either stop the oil spill or get out of his way.
Gov. Bobby Jindal warns BP and the White House to help or get out of his way.Jindal is still waiting for the federal government to provide millions of feet in boom and to approve an emergency permit for a state plan to dredge and build new barrier islands to keep the oil from reaching the marshes and wetlands.
Jindal is so desperate for the islands, he's said he'll build them even if it sends him to jail.
Day 36, and Mr. President has not responded. I guess he's too busy planning on skipping the memorial day service at arlington to vacay in chi-town.....
Seriously though. If this is not the ghosts of Katrina, you all have lost your mind. Jindal is at his wits end waiting for federal permission to build barrier islands that he's willing to risk jail time...
Why is Obama not responding to this?
