GOP slams Obama’s vow to veto

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – Newly sworn in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is slamming President Barack Obama for vowing to veto the first bill of the now GOP-led Congress.

McConnell said the first bill his conference will move forward is a measure to green light the controversial Keystone pipeline.

A version of the bill has already passed the House, so it is sure to be headed to the White House.

President Obama has already said he will veto the project.

McConnell said he wants bipartisan cooperation on major issues. But that can only be achieved President Obama is interested in it.

He said a veto threat by the president is anything but productive.

“It seems with every new day we have a new veto threat from the president. With regard to his announcement that he is going to veto the Keystone XL Pipeline Bill, I think it’s interesting to note that this is exactly the same bill that was before the Senate last month when the then majority was trying to save Sen. Landrieu in a run-off, and I don’t recall the president mentioning at that point he would veto the bill,” McConnel said.

    Keystone pipeline from Canada will create 40,000 or more jobs, but Obama will veto it. 1st reason; US will not be dependent from Arab oil anymore,and Obama is a personal friend of the King of Saudi Arabia. 2nd; the oil prices will remain steady low and it will destroy the solar business in California and Nevada which is run by the relatives/friends of Democrat politicians.3rd reason is;Democrat political donors Warren Buffet, the riches man in the world, monopolized the train business that transport oil from Canada…Take note, once a President retire his major income is to deliver speeches all over the world,it cost $100,000-1Million per appearance, the funding mostly comes from the Saudis. In my opinion that is the pay off.Bill Clinton one time made $9Million a year for speaking engagement.To make the payment legal check is payable to the Presidential library, now you understand.

      @Mario, I dont believe Obama want anyone to have a job . He already put a red light even before it got to his desk. Obama wants everyone on welfare and depended on Government handout.

      Obama and demons-rats dont even like the workers to have a full time job , they denied the 40 hours work week . Never before in our history has there been such a foolish president. Obama’s foolishness is so consistent that it suggests design rather than incompetence, anti-American intentions rather than serial stupidity.

    Now we know who is the Obstructionist. Obama just two weeks ago, said he was looking forward to working with the New Republicans that was Elected to the Senate and the House of Representatives.

    The Lier-In-Chief has struck again and you know, he does it with such glib and evil practice, that most Americans don’t even know when he does the dastardly deed. Nothing has or will be changed with this Tyranical Dictator.

    obozo is an a$$hole comie, anti business, for him to sign this elephant pipeline initiative is killing obozo, like he is stabbing his own chest with a sharp knife, yes the pen he sees them as a sharp knife. obozo’s ideologue is the craziest, ruining the USA, his far out lefty bullcraps of pro environments are based on nothing but false or junk science, thus obozo uses this as a good excuse in covering up his extreme ideologues, and his undying support of the militant greenpeace, whose goal is to make humans go back to cave living. the people who calls themselves as environmentalists are still living the convenience of modern living which they all deplore, the most infamous is al gore, what a dickhead, he should be living in a cave if people will have to believe all of his manufactured BS of the environments. only GOD knows what he will do with the world, with growing GODless, antiGOD populations, like the USA.
