Candidacy Vs. Needs Of Constituancy

As opportunists go, Louisana Governor Bobby Jindal is shaping-up to be one of the best this year.

Congresswoman Debbie Asserman-Schultz takes Jindal to task over his statements that he would pass on accepting unemployment from the Economc Stimulus:

As the congressman representing parts of Lousiana devastated by Hurricane Katrina, Jindal actively sought assistance from the federal government. Yesterday on MSNBC’s Countdown, Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) called the Republican Party a “heartless and insensitive organization” and criticized Jindal for rejecting the unemployment funds. Jindal, she noted, was singing a different tune about unemployment aid when Katrina hit his district:

WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ: This is a guy, who while I served with him in Congress, voted for that [unemployment] assistance twice, and is certainly willing to take funding from the federal when people are out of a job and out of their home as a result of a hurricane, but not willing to take that assistance when his constituents are out of a job and out of a home as a result of this economic crisis. I’m not sure what the difference is. A crisis is a crisis.

Goernor Jindal is apparently forsaking the population of the state he was tasked with representing in favour of not only a failed ideology, but of beginning his campaign for the Presidency.
