While King Rat obama is always preaching to the U.S. and the world he refuses to sign
legislation that would bring high paying jobs for 20,000 Americans. Yes, the same Rat that says Americans are getting lazy still refuses to sign off on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline project.
obama and the rest of his nest mates want to continue to hinder job creation and increase our dependence on foreign oil. It makes all U.S. industries more dependent on foreign oil, mostly from his friends in the Arab world. And as usual, his bought and paid for friends in the main stream media just plain ignore his inaction.
This disgrace of a president is so afraid to make a decision it make me ill! Impeach obama NOW!

ABC and NBC completely ignored a decision by the Obama administration that could kill up to 20,000 jobs. Only CBS’s Evening News on Thursday reported that a proposed oil pipeline from Canada to Texas has been delayed until after the presidential election due to environmental concerns.
Evening News reporter Mark Strassmann explained, “Supporters said the pipeline from Canada’s tar sand fields would create more than 20,000 jobs and reduce U.S. dependence on oil from the Middle East.”
He added, “But opponents argued the pipeline was a potential environmental hazard that could have polluted an aquifer that supplies drinking water for eight states.”
Strassmann pointed out that the decision allows Obama to putt off a “very tough decision” and that the President “was squeezed between environmentalists on one side and labor unions aching for jobs on the other.”
On NBC, Today and the Nightly News both skipped the subject. ABC’s World News and Good Morning America did the same. While Thursday’s Evening News did feature the story in a full report, Friday’s Early Show ignored it.
