Democrats Angry Over Obama Decision to Delay Keystone for His Own Political Gain

They held a press conference saying, ‘We will boycott the 2014 elections if the president signs this.’ The president knows. His brain is telling him that it has to be signed. There’s just no good reason to deny the permit except for the political pressures that are on him from his far left,” said Terry, a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
