“More than 20,000 new American jobs have just been sacrificed in the name of political expediency,” said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. “By punting on this project, the president has made clear that campaign politics are driving U.S. policy decisions — at the expense of American jobs.”
Nonsense. This isn’t a political move designed to appease, for now, the environmentalist base of the progressive movement. That would be cynical.
No, what this is is the kind of deliberative, smart leadership that will protect children and old people and while promoting health and safety and a clean clean planet.
And if you disagree, well, that’s just because you like pollution and hate the earth. And children. And old people. And health. And safety. And corporate fat cats.
