Jindal's office supports removal of drilling moratorium – This Just In - CNN.com BlogsBy Alec MacGillis
Among the points that provided fodder for critics of Bobby Jindal's much-maligned response to Obama's speech last night was the Louisiana governor's derisive dismissal of stimulus funding for volcano monitoring.
Complained Jindal of the package, "It includes ... $140 million for something called 'volcano monitoring.' Instead of monitoring volcanoes, what Congress should be monitoring is the eruption of spending in Washington, D.C."
Many left-leaning bloggers noted that it seemed a bit odd for the governor of a state that was devastated by a hurricane for which the government provided insufficient warning and preparation to be making light of upgrading our capability to guard against another kind of natural disaster.
Rep. Ed Markey: Waking America From the BP NightmareThe office of Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal filed a friend of the court brief in federal court Monday supporting the removal of President Barack Obama's six-month deepwater drilling moratorium.
A federal judge is scheduled to hear arguments Monday from companies seeking an end to the moratorium. The ban, instituted by the government last month, halts all drilling in more than 500 feet of water and prevents new permits from being issued.
So, If another oil disaster befalls us all....... Would you believe there would still be an amazing number of retards who would vote Jindal for president? What is wrong with people.. crazy? :wtf :wackyIn preparation for this hearing, Congress reviewed the oil spill safety response plans for all the top five oil companies.
What we found was that Exxon, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Shell and BP have response plans that are virtually identical. The plans cite identical response capabilities and tout identical ineffective equipment. In some cases, they use the exact same words and made the exact same assurances.
