Jindal: Don't Let Politics Get in the Way of Recovery Efforts

By David Eldridge   |   Saturday, 03 Nov 2012 09:34 PM

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal on Saturday urged the White House and state leaders in the Northeast dealing with Hurricane Sandy relief efforts to "stop declaring victory, stop giving speeches" and focus on helping victims of the storm.

The Republican governor, appearing on Fox News, said "I think it's way too early for the president or anybody else to say how the response is going."

Asked by host Neil Cavuto if the president is running a political risk by returning to the presidential campaign trail while millions in New York and New Jersey are still without power and supplies after Monday's storm, Mr. Jindal said most people aren't concerned about the politics involved, they just want help.

"It's been our experience in Louisiana ... the bureaucracy doesn't move as quickly. It's not accustomed to moving quickly. It's not a partisan issue, you've just got to push the bureaucracy at every level, especially the federal level."
