Barack Obama, mass job killer

Obama's decision to reject the Keystone pipeline project is a tragedy both for job seekers and the country's energy security. Many  job-loss figures are being claimed, but here's an estimate TransCanada made  some  time ago on their website when they thought -- like any sane person -- that  the project was too  vital for US  security not to be approved.  
They said: "TransCanada is poised to put 13,000 Americans to work to construct the pipeline - pipefitters, welders, mechanics, electricians, heavy equipment operators, among other jobs - in addition to 7,000 manufacturing jobs that would be created across the U.S.  Additionally, local businesses  on the pipeline route will benefit from the 118,000 spin-off jobs Keystone XL will create through increased business for local goods and service providers." 
 The only good thing  to emerge from this ghastly mess is the  powerful weapon  it has given Republicans to  ridicule  the job-destroyer-in-chief if he dares claim ever again  that he's  a champion of the middle class.
