We’ve all read, heard and seen the many lies that have come from the Obama Administration. Some call it politics as usual, but it sure seems to me that this particular administration has outdone even itself when it comes to the number of deceptions and outright lies it has fed to the American people.
I could come up with a bunch of them just from ObamaCare alone, which would not even touch the ones we’ve witnessed pertaining to the IRS, the EPA and the Department of Justice.
I mention all this because the president has recently kept a promise, and I think that’s worth noting. He kept his word by vetoing the Keystone XL Pipeline bill that Republicans and some Democrats have been trying to get passed. As with most bills, it’s very detailed, but the bottom line is that this pipeline – designed to stretch from Canada to Texas – would help America become less dependent on foreign oil and would provide jobs for thousands of Americans.
But none of that matters to a president is who is more interested in keeping the special interest groups happy who got him elected twice. The environmentalists, who often prove they are more concerned over the fate of one polar bear than the fate of thousands of Americans who need jobs to support their families, have put a lot of pressure on Obama and he has wilted under it.
House Speaker John Boehner called Obama’s veto a “national embarrassment,” while Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “It’s extremely disappointing that President Obama vetoed a bipartisan bill that would support thousands of good jobs and pump billions of dollars into the economy.”
Can you think of another promise that Obama kept? I can think of a doozy. (Hint: it had to do with electricity.) Let me know which ones you come up with.
