Five Things From the State Of the Union That Just Don't Add Up

Cheaper Energy, Just Without The Keystone Pipeline
A good chunk of Obama's SOTU address touched on the subject of furthering the production of American energy, while also making energy more affordable in the meantime. President Obama failed to mention in his address that he recently killed the Keystone Pipeline project, a project that would have provided over 20,000 jobs, and allow the U.S. to obtain oil from a close ally, all at a cheaper price. Why did he do this? Apparently to curry favor with people like Daryl Hannah.
He also did not mention that billionaire Obama supporter Warren Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. will do extremely well in the wake of the Keystone Pipeline cancellation. A railroad company owned by Berkshire Hathaway transports the oil currently being produced in North Dakota. While moving oil by railway is more dangerous than by pipeline, it will certainly help Buffet make a pretty penny.

Thanks for sharing! He has absolutely no credibility on energy or jobs creation.
