Columnist George Will said that if President Obama really wants the US to spend more money on infrastructure, he should approve the Keystone XL Pipeline on Tuesday’s “Special Report” on the Fox News Channel.
“He says rightly that we as a nation should be spending much more on infrastructure, [the] Keystone XL Pipeline is infrastructure, pure infrastructure, supported by his great constituency beyond the environmentalists which is organized labor in this country” he stated.
Will added, “furthermore, this now begins to go against the fundamental Obama pose that explains all the swooning about him in the media and academia, that is the pose of the calm, deliberative, weighing of evidence man. Evidence didn’t enter into this, this is a purely ideological opposition on his part that can be changed by nothing.”
