Bush makes his play for Louisiana...: "The shrimp catchers of Lafitte and surrounding bayous should be happy: After years of complaining about unfair competition, the U.S. government has proposed tariffs on shrimp imports from China and Vietnam.
But many believe the effort is a little too late.
'The best fisherman on the bayou can't make it,' said Jules Nunez, a spry and garrulous 71-year-old dock owner. 'If you go from Texas to the Carolinas, it's the same thing.' "

Maybe they see ill potents in the election year.

Louisiana is a swing state and so this is purely political as were the steel tariffs.
