In delaying the Keystone XL pipeline to 2013, President Obama proved once and for all that he does not care about jobs, except perhaps his own. In kowtowing to the environmental lobby the $8 billion infrastucture project that would transport oil from the Canadian oilsands to the Gulf coast, President Obama is holding about 23,000direct jobs hostage to his political whim. Furthermore, upon completion we would have significantly improved our energy security. We would substitute Canadian oil for middle-eastern oil, a great trade-off, but not in the eyes of our President.
Let us hope that we will soon have a more enlightened leadership in the White House.
