Quote of the Day - union president vs Obama and oil pipeline

From this article by John Ransom:

Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America has recently blasted Obama for double dealing against American jobs on behalf of the enviro-whackos like he did on the Keystone Oil Pipeline. O’Sullivan represents pipefitters and others who would be employed on the Keystone project.

“Environmentalists formed a circle around the White House and within days the Obama Administration chose to inflict a potentially fatal delay to a project that is not just a pipeline,” said O’Sullivan when Obama punted on the pipeline project to side with whackos over workers, “but is a lifeline for thousands of desperate working men and women. The Administration chose to support environmentalists over jobs – job-killers win, American workers lose. Environmental groups from the Natural Resources Defense Council to the Sierra Club may be dancing in the streets, having delayed and possibly stopped yet another project that would put men and women back to work. While they celebrate, pipeline workers will continue to lose their homes and livelihoods.”

Merry Christmas, Mr. Obama. You should be proud.

I think the pipeline project will eventually go regardless of whether it's Obama as President or as to be determined Republican President.

It's too large, too important and politically has great support on both sides of the aisle with the exception of Obama. So what I suspect will happen is after the election a Republican President will get it going or Obama in an effort to save the Democrat party's blue collar workers will relent and stick it to the environmentalists.

Either way it goes forward.
