With all the continuing trouble in the Middle East (i.e. Syria, higher oil prices, various government fighting) we need to be less obligated in Middle East oil and more focused on the Keystone Pipeline.
Why Obama keeps dragging his feet is beyond imagination. He has the common sense of roadkill.
The pipeline is environmentally safe, would provide multiple kinds of employment, from construction to maintenance, would lower future gas and oil prices, and help get us out from under the whims of foreign oil producers.
While Obama is stupidly posturing over Syria, he continues to ignore the American economy. Keystone would help America get back on track.
