After five years of study and review, the president has again refused to consider approval of the Keystone Pipeline. Despite recent bipartisan urging to approve a project that will create, by some conservative estimates 20,000 jobs, will give the economy a needed boost and will be a step towards lessening our dependence on foreign oil, the president continues to say “no.” In defense of his Obamacare plan, the president has said we all need to stop arguing and put our energies towards creating jobs, improving the economy and getting America back on its feet. What better way to put his words into action than to approve this project. Sadly, President Obama speaks eloquently, but his words have little impact on issues that matter.
