Statement by Rick Santorum on the Obama Administration's Rejection of the Keystone Pipeline

January 18, 2012

Mt. Pleasant, SC - Republican Presidential candidate Rick Santorum responded to the Obama Administration's rejection of the Keystone Pipeline.

Rick Santorum said: "Today's decision by the Obama Administration is but another capitulation to the radical environmental fringe - and in turn putting our national security and economy at risk. Our nation needs energy and this pipeline will provide this much needed resource. In rejecting this responsible project that will create thousands of American jobs, we are simply diverting this energy to our international competitors like China. This announcement is utterly irresponsible and one more reason why Barack Obama is not the right man to lead this country. As President, I would approve the Pipeline on day-one."
