Day475 Saturday 12/17/11

ran 3.6 miles
This morning the Senate voted (89-10) to extend the payroll tax cut for an additional two months. Aiming to reach an agreement to extend the payroll tax cut and unemployment benefits for the entire next year, the Senate failed to find any other compromise. Included in the deal is a sixty-day deadline for President Obama to either veto or sign the Keystone pipeline project.

Barack Obama has threatened to veto Keystone if it reaches his desk. The ball is now in his court and this is a big decision. While it seems like concentrated common sense to most of us, this project is a real dilemma for our president. Barack Obama’s fanatical environmentalist voting demographic will be extremely disappointed if he signs Keystone, which would instantly create tens of thousands of jobs for decades and allow America to further depend on itself for energy. It’s all pluses for his dismal approval ratings, America’s unemployment numbers, and our tanking economy.

Yet, Barack Obama has to actually think about this no-brainer. Obama vowed to veto Keystone and within weeks he is more than likely going to flip-flop and pass it. He has to. This project could quite possibly create more solid jobs than the Obama administration has created in the last three years. Even the unions are backing Keystone. Only the environmentalist stand in the way and I have a feeling they will be compromised on this one. Sixty days, Mr. President. Tick tock.

633.5 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day110.
