Friday before a holiday? Must be time for President Obama to unload some more news they don’t want the American public to notice. In this edition, last Friday, the State Department announced they would not weigh in on the Keystone XL pipeline until a lawsuit pending in Nebraska is settled, but this is just the latest excuse in a long line of excuses Democrats have tossed out there in an attempt to have their cake and eat it, too.
Despite the State Department’s previous proclamation that the environmental impact of the Keystone XL pipeline was close to none in their final environmental assessment back in January, Democrat sugar-daddy Tom Steyer has given the party a 100 million reasons to delay a project that’s just commonsense for America on many levels.
Unfortunately for Colorado, our own liberal Senator Mark Udall is already well-ensconced in Steyer’s pocket. This is especially unfortunate in light of the Keystone XL pipeline’s projected boon for Colorado jobs. Wait PeakNation™, surely that doesn’t mean Udall is choosing his billionaire sugar daddy over creating good Colorado jobs!? No politician would be that foolish.
Yet, that is exactly what is going on here. Udall has chosen a $100 million over what is best for Colorado. No wonder people in the know now see him being unemployed come November. Who wants to bet he finds a job with Steyer shortly thereafter?
