GOMOD – Gulf Of Mexico Oil Disaster


According to Dept of Homeland Security:

• LA Governor/Commander in Chief Bobby Jindal idles 80% of Louisiana’s National Guard 1,045/6000

• AL Governor/Commander in Chief Bob Riley declares “Day of Prayer,” activated 439/3000 National Guard

• MS Governor/Commander in Chief Haley Barbour said tarballs “no big deal,” activated 64/6000

• FL Governor/Commander in Chief Charlie Crist activated 37/2500

The President has authorized to pay for up to 17,500 National Guard troops to assist in this clean up.


Those Governors are all Republicans.
