Obama Picks Politics Over Jobs … Postpones Decision on Keystone XL Pipeline Until After 2012 Election
Another complete and total lack of leadership … Wonder why America cannot create jobs and the economy continues at a snails pace. Look no farther than President Barack Obama.Not only has he been anti-business, he now is purposely not making decisions that would create jobs.
President Jobs: I am only for the jobs that I like that fit my liberal agenda
So President Barack Obama is really interested in created jobs for Americans? Then why did he just punt the Keystone XL pipeline decision until after the 2012 election? Obama always talks about his stimulus plan that created or saved jobs, is he going to count the following as his decision that killed 20,000 jobs.
Obama delays the decision on the Keystone XL pipeline until after the 2012 election and in turn delays the creation of thousands of jobs. Just how long does Obama need to make a decision? This has nothing to do with the health and safety of the American people, it has everything to do with partisan politics.
The State Department on Thursday announced that it’s punting a decision on the controversial Keystone XL pipeline until at least the first quarter of 2013 — pushing off a no-win decision for President Barack Obama until well after the 2012 election.
The State Department said it needs more time to “undertake an in-depth assessment of potential alternative routes in Nebraska.”
Obama said in a statement that he supports delaying a decision
Wasn’t it Obama that said, pass my jobs bill now, pass it, c’mon, pass it … pass it now. President Barack Obama wanted his Obamacare passed immediate, he wanted his failed stimulus plan passed immediately, he wanted his jobs bill passed immediately … however, when it comes to a presidential decision that would have actually created 20,000 jobs, Obama stalls to pander to the radical leftists of the green wing of the Democrat party. Way to go Barack.
“More than 20,000 new American jobs have just been sacrificed in the name of political expediency,” Boehner said in a statement. “The current project has already been deemed environmentally sound, and calling for a new route is nothing but a thinly veiled attempt to avoid upsetting the president’s political base before the election.”
Talk about political ideology over the success of the US economy and American worker, Obama rejects job creation as it would come as a result of energy that is not green enough for him. As stated by the Lonely Conservative, Obama’s vision for America is retroactive back to the horse and buggy. This president gets it, he just does not care.
What an epic failure Obama truly is. We can only hope that this clown is tossed out in the 2012 election and a President who actually cares about real job creation is elected and America can start back on the path of economic recovery following the four failed years of Obama.
