Obama Vetoed Keystone XL

obama-veto-timeYep! Obama vetoed a bill that approved the Keystone XL pipeline which would connect tar sands crude oil in Alberta, Canada with an existing pipeline, allowing 830,000 barrels/day to be pumped to US refineriest.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the president vetoed the bill almost as soon as it arrived at the White House.

In a message to the Senate, Obama proclaimed:

The presidential power to veto legislation is one I take seriously. But I also take seriously my responsibility to the American people. And because this act of Congress conflicts with established executive branch procedures and cuts short thorough consideration of issues that could bear on our national interest — including our security, safety, and environment — it has earned my veto.

— Barack Hussein Obama

Truly, the only reason this is newsworthy or noteworthy is that Obama actually lived up to his promise – threat really – this time. He’s promised to veto anything that the Republican-led Congress puts on his desk thirteen separate times and this was the first bill in question.

Nor is the stated reason for Obama’s veto shocking for any reason other than its rare honestly. The boy’s stated reason wasn’t even the environment or Global Warming; it was that he demands the approval process solely the jurisdiction of the Executive branch, i.e., him and his people, specifically his State Department.

Of course, Obama is well and truly within his rights as POTUS to veto any and all bills that reach his desk and to do so for any reason or no reason at all. It’s just sad that America is stuck with a POTUS who chooses to excessive those rights out of narcissism, petulance, and childishness.

The New Keystone Kop

Watching Obama and his handlers dealing with anything is much like watching an old reel of the Keystone Kops. This is especially true when it comes to allowing business to provide jobs and energy independence.

Such things would violate the sensibilities of much of what remains of his base. Hence, the boy and his handlers spend their time scampering around trying to spike any such program or effort.

Obama Spiking Pipeling
Obama’s Never Been Much For Jobs Or Industry

Just look at the way the Campaigner-in-Chief has been doing what amounts to his best to spike the Keystone Pipeline Project without actually admitting to doing so.

Hellfire! At least the Leftist, slacker rabble of OWS admit that they’re trying to destroy America’s industrial and financial infrastructure, but then they want handouts other than votes.

Americans should be thankful that the GOP has learned a few lessons from our enemy and adopted some of Alinsky’s strategies. In this case that would be Rule 3 – “Whenever possible, go outside the expertise of the enemy,” because forcing Obama to make a public decision is forcing him well outside his area of expertise.

There’s A Kink In The Pipeline – It’s Named Obama

I suppose Americans should be somewhat thankful to the Gods for the fact that the boy and his handlers are so much like the Keystone Kops. They make spike projects, gum up the works with either malice or incompetency, and otherwise be a clear and present danger to America, but they’re pretty damn stupid and clumsy about doing so and are sort of funny to watch. 😆
