Bobby Jindal Is Scheming
So what's with his posturing? I would posit that he's simply a crafty and ambitious politician. Jindal is building an reputation as the most conservative member of the GOP's presidential wannabe crowd, which squabbles over who is the most right-wing every time it hits the Iowa campaign circuit. Talking tough about the stimulus nets him press now; quietly taking the money a few weeks from now will almost certainly go unnoticed.
