Iowa Rep. Steve King: Obama Won’t Help Oil Spill Because Bobby Jindal Is A Republican

Iowa Congressman Steve King agrees with a caller to Jan Mickelson’s radio show on WHO in Des Moines that President Obama isn’t helping Louisiana with the oil spill because Governor Bobby Jindal is a Republican. (h/t Think Progress)

CALLER: You know it’s absolutely despicable the way our president is acting on this oil slick. And it boils down that the governor is a Republican and Obama is a Democrat and he’s not gonna help in any way to make him, to help Louisiana. … So as far as I’m concerned the blood is on his hands. […]

KING: I appreciate Larry’s statement and I agree with his analysis of it. As I watch the reluctance on the part of the White House to cooperate with Bobby Jindal. I’d like to think it’s being done out of policy perspective, but there is a political component. And to delay these skimmers all this time, and to refuse to wave the Jones Act, well essentially they passed that hot potato around, and nobody asked for it.
