Keystone XL veto: Obama “literally intervened to support an American enemy”

Obama Quietly Vetoes Keystone XL Just Weeks After Saudi Arabia Visit

The Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama lived up to his promise to veto a bipartisan bill approving the Keystone XL pipeline Tuesday after months of debate by lawmakers.

“I am returning herewith without my approval… the ‘Keystone XL Pipeline Approval Act,’” Obama wrote in his veto statement. “Through this bill, the United States Congress attempts to circumvent longstanding and proven processes for determining whether or not building and operating a cross-border pipeline serves the national interest.”

Republicans chastised Obama for vetoing legislation to approve the 1,179-mile pipeline that would bring oil sands from Alberta, Canada to refineries near the U.S. Gulf Coast. The veto comes as no surprise, as Obama has for months he would veto any legislation approving the pipeline.

Republicans have hit Obama for shutting down a project that would make the U.S. less dependent on oil from OPEC, Russia and other unfriendly nations.
