Remember the Bobby Jindal of a year ago? He was the GOP poster child of less federal government. He was the champion of less government regulations.  He said conservative things like:

“In the end, it comes down to an honest and fundamental disagreement about the proper role of government. We (Repubs) oppose the national Democrats’ view that says the way to strengthen our country is to increase dependence on government. We believe the way to strengthen our country is to restrain spending in Washington and empower individuals and small businesses to grow our economy and create jobs.”

Fast forward to today while BP is unsuccessfully trying to stop a world-class oil spill. Well, THAT Bobby Jindal wants more federal government assistance and more effective regulations.

“BP is the responsible party, but we need the federal government to make sure they are held accountable and that they are indeed responsible. Our way of life depends on it.”

Oh, I get it! Republicans hate big government until they think they need it. I like their system.

  1. Your reaching here. The proper role of government is to hold parties to be responsible for their actions. So a car company that makes bad cars would go bankrupt… sorry bad example there. So a bank that makes bad loans would go bankrupt… oh, sorry another bad example. Well an oil company that makes a bad well… well maybe Jindal is right.
