Keystone Decision a Political Hot Potato for Obama

Hosted by  • 

President Obama says Republicans forced his decision to reject the Keystone XL Pipeline, designed to bring Canadian shale oil 1600 miles from Alberta to Gulf Coast refineries. Critics say he has foregone both job creation and a step toward energy independence. Last night, Republican president hopeful Mitt Romney agreed, faulting Obama's decision on having to "bow to the most extreme members of the environmental movement… We have to replace Barack Obama to get America working again." But bad news for some is good news for others.
