After announcing plans to shrink our military, the President, then, rejected the Alberta-tar-sands-to-the-Gulf, Keystone-XL oil-pipeline, deflecting blame from his Teflon White House, by heaping it on every Republican president since Lincoln, as well as Christopher Columbus for discovering America in the first place! TransCanada Corporation spent the last three-years, and almost $2-billion in private-funding, to gain the required permits. Due to the project's cross-border status, our State Department twice gave its approval, concluding the project would have "no significant (environmental) impacts." Cue the rampage of the eco-warriors. State, then, folded, and, the President also said no, per D.C.'s 24/7 politics-above-nation, echo-chamber. So we've now delayed, or lost, an estimated 20-thousand new construction jobs, plus many times that number, in support and supplier personnel.
