WASHINGTON (AP) — Defying the Republican-run Congress, President Barack Obama rejected a bill Tuesday to approve construction of the Keystone XL oil pipeline, wielding his veto power for only the third time in his presidency.
He wants you to suffer at the pump, and he wants to kill oil, to kill coal, to kill any potential energy independence of the United States of America.
Why would this be? MotherJones weighs in.
Because Mr Obama still believes that the United States of America needs to be brought down a number of pegs. The US is too big for its britches. It is too colonialistic, too strong, too powerful.
He favors Blood Oil and Conflict Oil over that which we can bring up from our own soil, and that which we can acquire by dint of the construction of a pipeline from Alberta to the Gulf Coast.
Environmentalists bleat that allowing the Keystone XL is akin to allowing the Trans-Alaskan pipeline. Oh yeah. The pipeline that hasn’t suffered even one break or catastrophe in its entire existence. Except by those persons who wished to do it harm = Leftists.
It’s back to the basics for Obama. He hated that your gas prices went down the past three months, and is pleased that they are now rising. He wants to hurt you and force you into energy paradigms that aren’t viable but “sound” good and support emotive arguments. He has no primary substitute for oil, but that means nothing when you own the American Media Maggots.
Make no mistake.
Obama wants to make you hurt.
