Who Did Obama Throw Under the Bus with Keystone Pipeline Rejection?
It’s not easy keeping everybody happy if you’re President Obama.
When you go “all in” in support of a climate change agenda, someone is going to get left behind.
The main union for construction workers is accusing President Obama of throwing them “under the bus” by rejecting the Keystone XL oil pipeline.
The Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) is one of the few labor unions that broke with the majority of Democrats and supported the project, which Obama rejected Friday after a seven-year review.
“We are dismayed and disgusted that the President has once again thrown the members of LIUNA, and other hard-working, blue-collar workers under the bus of his vaunted ‘legacy,’ while doing little or nothing to make a real difference in global climate change,” Terry O’Sullivan, the union’s general president, said in a statement. “His actions are shameful.”
Mr. O’Sullivan sums up Obama’s Presidency perfectly.
It IS indeed shameful.
Fir seven years, Obama’s ego-driven agenda to create a legacy has trumped doing anything that makes a real difference.
