    Default Bobby Jindal may reject some stimulus money

    Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, a potential 2012 GOP presidential candidate, has suggested his state may not be interested in all of the roughly $4 billion allotted to it in the economic stimulus package to be signed by President Obama today.

    "We'll have to review each program, each new dollar to make sure that we understand what are the conditions, what are the strings and see whether it's beneficial for Louisiana to use those dollars," Jindal said, according to CBS affiliate WWLTV.

    Jindal is scheduled to give the response to the presidentís not-exactly-a-state-of-the-union address next Tuesday.

    Louisiana reportedly faces a possible $2 billion budget shortfall next year. It has been allocated $538,575,876 for infrastructure spending in the stimulus package, and the White House predicts the bill will create 50,000 jobs in the state.

    As WWLTV notes, New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin has said heíll take any money that Louisiana turns down.

    Bullshit. Jindal knows damn well if he rejects any stimulus cash in this recession he can kiss his political career goodbye. He's just playing to the conservative base.

    I doubt it. Because Palin bitched about the stimulus too, but she'll take the money and run when it comes.

    And there were a couple of House Republicans who voted against the stimulus, who then sent out press releases bragging about the things that they managed to stick in the stimulus for their states.

    Louisiana's governor may say he is willing to reject portions of the allocation, but I assure, that money will find it's way to Louisiana soil.

    As for Nagin, is it any surprise that vulture would be circling overhead ready to pick the corpse clean?

    Hey, I'm sure California and many other states would gladly take any of Louisiana's rejected $$$.
