President Tries to Have It Both Ways on Keystone

After refusing to issue a presidential permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, President Obama is now attempting to take credit for the 29 percent of the pipeline that actually is being built because it does not require presidential approval. Meanwhile, the president continues to block the remaining two-thirds of the pipeline - the part that would actually connect to the energy source and carry oil from Canada, Montana, and North Dakota to the rest of the United States. The president's actions threaten our national security and block access to American jobs and economic growth. If the president really cared about our energy security, he would approve the whole pipeline, not spend his time trying to score political points by taking credit for a part of the pipeline he had nothing to do with.
