Obama Tells Another Whopper: "Republicans Forced Me To Reject Keystone PipeLine"
I absolutely cannot believe the gall of this president.
The SorosBots over at Think Progress are broadcasting President Obama's statement on his killing the Keystone Pipeline deal because of the Evil Republicans:
" As the State Department made clear last month, the rushed and arbitrary deadline insisted on by Congressional Republicans prevented a full assessment of the pipeline’s impact, especially the health and safety of the American people, as well as our environment. As a result, the Secretary of State has recommended that the application be denied. And after reviewing the State Department’s report, I agree."
The president is flat out lying. As I revealed previously,it wasn't his decision at all and it wasn't the Republicans, who were just trying to get a decision out of him and get things rolling. The real story is that the Canadians finally got fed up with President Obama's delaying tactics and talk of putting off making a decision until 2013 and decided themselves to cut a deal with China and sell them the oil.
Thanks to this president, we lost out on cheaper prices at the pump, thousands of construction jobs and ticked off one of our closest allies in the bargain. The fault was entirely his.
Spin that, Mr. President!
