Thumbs down Obama pressures Senate to kill Keystone Pipeline so he doesn't have to VETO it

Got to give Obama a lot of credit. He is a slickster.

Rather than cast another VETO against a pipeline that would lower gas prices, create jobs, and help our nation during an election year, he is instead pressuring Democratic senators to kill the bill so it doesn't get a vote.

He really is trying to destroy this nation.

Leftist Politico broke this story =>
. . . President Barack Obama is intervening in a Senate fight over the Keystone XL oil pipeline and personally lobbying Democrats to reject an amendment calling for its construction, according to several sources familiar with the talks.

The White House lobbying effort, including phone calls from the president to Democrats, signals that the vote could be close when it heads to the floor Thursday. The president is trying to defeat an amendment that would give election-year fodder to his Republican critics who have accused him of blocking a job-creating energy project at a time of high gas prices. . .

"We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion:
the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases,
while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage
of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force."
- Ayn Rand
