Jindal 1, Obama 0

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal notes in passing in his new book of his experience with the President, and that he was not impressed with Obama’s spinning moral compass.

On Obama’s first trip to Louisiana after the disaster, the governor describes how the president took him aside on the tarmac after arriving to complain about a letter that Jindal had sent to the administration requesting authorization for food stamps for those who had lost their jobs because of the spill.

As Jindal describes it, the letter was entirely routine, yet Obama was angry and concerned about looking bad.

"Careful," he quotes the president as warning him, "this is going to get bad for everyone."
And as if you could already tell, Jindal adds:
The governor asserts that the White House had tipped off reporters to watch the exchange on the New Orleans tarmac that Sunday in May and deemed it a “press stunt” that symbolized what’s wrong with Washington.

“Political posturing becomes more important than reality,” he writes.
As best as one can discern, that vapidity IS what the left’s ideology has been reduced to anyway: forming an appearance that masks their instincts and intent when it comes to public policy. 2012 can’t come quickly enough.
