GOP: Obama bowing to Democratic base with Keystone pipeline delays

Louisiana Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy criticized President Obama's repeated delays in approving the Keystone XL oil pipeline on Saturday, saying the president and Democrats in Congress are blockading a project that would create jobs just to satisfy their political base.

"The State Department says that building this pipeline creates 42,000 direct and indirect jobs, has a negligible impact upon the environment and saves lives as there are fewer accidents shipping oil by pipeline instead of rail or truck," Cassidy said in the weekly Republican address. "Unfortunately, President Obama continues to oppose job-creating projects, such as Keystone."
