Jindal: Obama told us not to criticize him on TV
Right Scoop News ^ | Nov 22, 2010 | Glenn Beck

Posted on 11/22/2010 11:20:32 AM PST by Islander7

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.

“were told specifically by Obama not to go on TV and criticize him”

Gee, I wonder how much additional media coverage Kathleen Blanco, Mary Landrieu and Ray Nagin would have gotten if they had been told the same by the Bush administration.

Good for Jindal for exposing the Hypocrite in Chief.

I like Jindal, but why is this coming out now, and not when it happened? Was Jindal offered something to stay quiet, or was some kind of threat made?

It was reported locally. My friends back home were outraged. Of course, the national lap dog media would not dare jeopardize their seats on the press plane.

Thanks for that clarification, Islander! Hard to believe the media could keep a lid on something like that so long...

“I like Jindal, but why is this coming out now, and not when it happened? Was Jindal offered something to stay quiet, or was some kind of threat made?”

Jindal did complain a lot to the media about the WH in the BP spill aftermath. He was also busy dealing with the crisis, and the media downplayed such WH protests at first. Writing about it was probably the best way Jindal could get this info out.

Steely Speedy Transcript:

Interviewer… did I hear that he also said something to the effect that “you’d better not make it sound like he didn’t care about people…” did, did he say something along those lines to you?

Yeah. He… there were two interactions that were surreal to me. The second time he came to the state after the (unintelligible) ended his meeting by basically telling me and the Parish President of (unintelligible) Parish that he didn’t want to see us going on TV to criticize him. Now, he was very specific, he said he was mad that we kept going… he didn’t want to see us on CNN, so I’m assuming Glenn, that we can still go on FOX and other channels, and criticize him, but apparently he was frustrated that we were going on TV to criticize him, his first visit, down there… the very first time he comes to Louisiana after the oil spill, he pulls me aside, and a publicity stunt, he’s is angry, and I can understand if he was angry about the bureaucratic response, the oil spill, the loss of life, Glenn, I would’ve understood that, it would have made sense to me. He was angry about a bureaucratic letter about food stamps, he said “careful, this is going to get bad for all of us,” Glenn, you got a White House, a President, that seem more worried about perception and politics, rather than actually cutting through the red tape, and in the book Leadership In Crisis I’ve got all kinds of stories of red tape and bureaucracy, which cannot move quickly… (end)

If George W. Bush had done this, the media would have gone absolutely wild with it. The treatment he would've gotten over a remark like this would have been double what he got over Katrina in 2005.

What I remember was the press, breathlessly asking (that boob) Ray Negin, after his meeting with W. on Air Force One, "well how did it go, was the tension level high?" and Negin's answer was (referring to the President) "No, he said 'you and me are OK'."

The very nerve of that nasty little twerp.
Everyone knows the hell that would have been raised had George Bush tried this kind of stunt

How come we are only hearing about this now?
It seems to be Jindal caved and limited criticism of the Obama

OBVIOUSLY (sarcasm)

I guess when you are such an icon of “change” and such a superlative “Leader” (aka Fuehrer, Duce,), you shouldn’t be subjected to things such as “criticism” which CLEARLY should be restricted to lesser mortals.

Too bad Jindal didn’t state this at the time. It’s too little, too late now. Republicans never seize an opportunity.

According to several other posts in this thread, Jindal did state this at the time. It was not picked up by the national media for what I assume are obvious reasons.

If that’s indeed the case, I’ll take it back about Jindal not seizing an opportunity. OTOH, why didn’t FoxNews broadcast it?

He has to be the prickliest man to sit in the Oval Office since Nixon.

“Gee, I wonder how much additional media coverage Kathleen Blanco, Mary Landrieu and Ray Nagin would have gotten if they had been told the same by the Bush administration.”

There’s a difference. Ray Nagin was black, and his city was hit by a hurricane, flood, and murder and mayhem. So he gets to call Bush, who’s white, a racist, and rake him over the coals. Jindal is white, and his state was hurt by a massive oil spill. So if he rakes Obama, who is black, over the coals, he’s a racist. I’m glad I cleared this up for you, and hope that you now see that there is no double standard./sarc
