The Day Obama Humiliated Stephen Harper
Well we all know he's an oil pimp. We all know he says he's an economist.
We all know he's been claiming that the Keystone XL pipeline would create tens of thousands of jobs in the United States.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper told an American audience today that the Keystone XL pipeline "absolutely needs to go ahead." Harper said the project will create 40,000 jobs south of the Canadian border and that can't be ignored.
And trying to embarrass Obama into approving the Keystone XL pipeline.
But unfortunately for Great Oily Leader you can't fool all the people all the time. And unlike him Obama CAN count.
U.S. President Barack Obama called into question the number of jobs that would be created from the controversial Keystone XL pipeline in an interview with the New York Times released on Saturday.
"There is no evidence that that's true. The most realistic estimates are this might create maybe 2,000 jobs during the construction of the pipeline, which might take a year or two, and then after that we're talking about somewhere between 50 and 100 jobs in an economy of 150 million working people."
Which leaves Harper looking either like a liar, or an IDIOT.
Or a mad prophet.
Harper said it's either going to be pipelines or railways that bring Canadian crude oil to the U.S. and that railways would be more challenging to the environment than pipelines that are properly built.
Because at least he got that one right eh?
Oh boy did he ever.
So where does that leave the Keystone XL pipeline? Good for Alberta and China, good for the Koch brothers, bad for everybody else (except those FIFTY workers).
And TERRIBLE for the planet.
And how does that leave Stephen Harper looking?
Well you be the judge.
Like a Liar? An idiot? A mad prophet?
A man who believes that he can brainwash people into believing anything, if he repeats it enough times?
Or a just Con klown...
Or all of the above.
OMG. What an embarrassment.
When will his ghastly act be over?
When can we give him the HOOK?
