Focused like a laser on the economy, huh? Really, can this guy be any more belligerent?
President Obama said in an interview that he would evaluate construction of the Keystone XL pipeline on the basis of whether it would significantly contribute carbon to the atmosphere.
But he mocked Republicans’ arguments that the approval of the pipeline, which would carry oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast, would create many jobs in the United States.
“Republicans have said that this would be a big jobs generator,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with The New York Times. “There is no evidence that that’s true. The most realistic estimates are this might create maybe 2,000 jobs during the construction of the pipeline, which might take a year or two, and then after that we’re talking about somewhere between 50 and 100 jobs in an economy of 150 million working people.”
Says the president who’s presided over millions of disappearing jobs. How’d all your solar projects, including your “phony” Solyndra scandal, work at at creating jobs? He’s merely stonewalling Keystone because he’s using junk science pushed by his EPA. So can’t we just let him get back to all that real job-creating he’s working on every waking moment while he’s not golfing, vacationing and campaigning?
