President Barack Obama on Friday rejected the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, ending the political fight over the Canada-to-Texas project that has gone on for much of his presidency.
Secretary of State John Kerry concluded the controversial project is not in the country's national security interest, and Obama announced from the White House that he agreed.
"America is now a global leader when it comes to taking serious action to fight climate change, and frankly approving this project would have undercut that leadership," Obama said.
Damn, now THAT'S my President!
Man you just KNOW this is going to drive the conservatives off the deep end.
Who am I kidding? Nowadays they have taken residence off the deep end.
Update: Well speaking of off the deep end, we all knew this was coming:
ANOTHER OBAMA SCREW UP
President Obama is stoked to kill the Keystone Pipeline to transport needed clean, safe, friendly energy to hungry markets. This dumps his promise of "working toward energy independence" and his supposed support for an "all of the above energy plan" into the crapper. Be prepared for actions like this in his final months in office - the expeditious transformation of America via nonsensical acts such as this, for it will be attempts at a rapid decline until and unless this Administration's equal branch of government - our elected legislative branch - doesn't start fighting back to protect America's economic opportunities leading to security and solvency. Step it up, politicians. Concerned voters - you, too. Remember, we can survive this President and his baffling blunders, but can we survive the people who voted for him - twice - and still believe he walks on water?

"Expeditious?" Well it looks like SOMEBODY finally cracked open that thesaurus they received in the tenth grade.
And fess up, which one of you thinks the President walks on water?
