The test of whether a decision by the President is politics or what he believes to be in the best interests of the nation


The nation has been waiting long enough. Time is up. President Obama needs to ‘fish or cut bait’ on Keystone.

Tomorrow night at the State of the Union would be a good time for him to make his announcement.

If President Obama decides the Keystone Pipeline – for or against – before the midterm election, he is doing it because he believes it is the right decision for the country. You may not agree with his decision but at least you can take comfort in it that you are not being played.

If he waits until after the midterm election, he is playing politics with everyone and not wanting his decision to impact how people vote in the midterm. That is lame.

He needs to decide now. Fish or cut bait.
