Keystone XL Pipeline vote getting pre-spun - Darren Samuelsohn - POLITICO.com They can't force President Obama to make a decision other than "no" because the law requires the "environmental review". Its not as though the president has a choice. Unlike the pubs who lie about everything - including how many jobs this farce will produce. The pubs have been anti-job for President Obama's entire administration so its really not surprising that when they finally do get behind a so-called "jobs producer", it will be fewer than 2000 long term jobs. And, all this for a piddly tiny amount of poor quality, very expensive oil that we would export. So, they'll put on their show and some will actually fall for it. Meanwhile, they have not brought forth even one jobs bill and have filibustered all bills that could help the economy or produce jobs. All in all, very typical GObP/pub/bag crap.
