Obama Rejects 20k Jobs, aka Keystone Pipeline
From an updated version of my recent McClatchy-Tribune editorial, to reflect the Obama administration's pending rejection of 20,000 new jobs for Americans, aka as the Keystone XL pipeline:
At a time when more than 13 million Americans are unemployed, you'd think that the president would be doing everything possible to stimulate employment. But his jobs-creation policy lacks direction and focus.
Despite great handwringing over America's anemic job creation, the president demonstrates little understanding of the damage his policies are doing to millions of unemployed Americans desperate to find work. Unfortunately, pleasing the environmental lobby seems much more important to him now than jobs.
