Anti-jobs president: Obama vetoes Keystone XL pipeline bill

A week after a State Department spokeswoman made the ridiculous claim that giving Islamic State killers jobs will curb their psychotic impulses, President Obama vetoed legislation that will authorize the building of the Keystone XL pipeline--which will create 20,000 good paying jobs. Keystone will also lessen our dependence on oil from nations like Saudi Arabia--which almost certainly indirectly funds ISIS.

Rudy Giuliani is right: Obama doesn't love America.

Obama's economy creates 20,000 just about every 2 days. The Keystone XL construction creates 20,000 good paying jobs, well, never. The pipeline is 1700 miles long. Will that take 11 workers per each and every mile for 2 years? of course not, that's simply laughable. There may be from 2000-3500 construction jobs, in line with what every other pipeline on the planet has required. Obama's economy creates that many jobs just about every 72-96 hours.

All construction jobs are temporary. Should we not build houses? Roads? Office towers? As for the Obama jobs--do you mean those part-time jobs that pay a pittance?

Yes. Construction jobs are temporary. I can't imagine why you find that in any way significant, because the point being made is: It doesn't take 20,000 workers to build a 1700 mile pipeline in 2 years. Pipelines are built everyday, all over the world, and that experience teaches us that it takes 2000-3500 workers to accomplish that task in that timeframe.

I still cannot understand why bringing oil from Canada to Texas (to refine and ship out) helps the US become less dependent on foreign oil. As an aside, most foreign oil is cheaper and does not require that we muck up our beautiful country.
