Andersoon Cooper Fact-Checks Obama on Keystone-Cushing

by Greg Pollowitz

You won’t see this much. Here’s Anderson Cooper taking Rep. John Boehner’s side and hitting Team Obama for their rhetoric on the Keystone pipeline’s Cushing, Okla. section. Cooper reminds viewers that the president has yet to say how he’ll “fast track” the permitting nor does he really have a mechanism to fast track a pipeline that doesn’t cross an international border. Also this is permitting Keystone says is already underway and on time, as we noted yesterday. In other words, there’s nothing to fast track. Video here of Cooper:
