Romney Hitting Hard on Keystone XL

The Hill: Romney on Keystone: ‘I will build that pipeline if I have to myself.’

Mitt Romney drew a line in the oil sands on Friday, focusing on the controversial Keystone pipeline project opposed by the White House and saying, “I will build that pipeline if I have to myself.”

Romney blasted Obama on a range of policies during a speech to the Republican National Committee’s State Chairmen’s National Meeting in Arizona, but singled out the controversial project that would route Canadian oil sands south to Gulf Coast refineries.

Thank goodness he’s on the right side of this.  Keystone is a winning issue for the GOP; we need the new jobs, and we need to be the junkie instead of the dealer.

Plus, I’d rather Romney hit Obama hard on energy than healthcare.

    It is good that he is in support of it. But something we need to focus on is that the Presidency, no matter if the person is an R or D, should not (and does not according to the Constitution) have the power to determine these types of projects and whether or not they proceed. This should be left completely for the private sector and the property owners it would affect to decide.
