Obama threatened to veto an extension of the payroll tax cut that included a hurry-up for the Keystone pipeline approval process. Republicans ignored him, and now Obama is prepared to move on and accept the tax cut extension linked to Keystone. Can we hear from yet another lefty as the rug is pulled out from under him? Yes We Can!
Nonetheless, environmental advocates were unhappy. “We’re stunned that the president would say one week that he’s going to veto any provision that includes Keystone, and then cave the next week,” said Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, an environmental group opposed to the pipeline. “Where I come from, people don’t do that, but I guess this is Washington.”
No, I guess this is Obama. Maybe they can run the Keystone pipeline all the way down to Gitmo, which will still be open.
I suggest the DNC resurrect Mack Sennett for the Obama campaign videos.
