Why did President Obama opt not to create jobs?
He vetoed the legislation for the Keystone Pipeline approval. He could have had thousands of Americans in work with clean and safe oil being transported. Why did the President opt not to create jobs? It seems strange, he had a golden opportunity to increase the employment rate.

because he wants people dependent on the government, it's the governments way of gaining more control and even having people support their having more control. It's a game they have played for years.

Ah yes. The 40 permanent jobs. Such a tragic loss. We will not see the ripple affect of temporary exploitation of workers. Value will not be produced for fossil fuel capitalists. Such a shame.

Starting wars creates lots of jobs, why doesn't he just do that?

His only job creation is dependency on government. He doesn't care about the people that want to work and care for themselves.

I notice cons are all worked up over 6000 temporary oil company jobs, funny how they had no problem blocking 2 million jobs from Obama's jobs bill. FYI, the risk of contaminating the drinking water of millions of Americans outweighed the virtually non-existent benefits to the suffering economy.
