On Good Friday, the Obama administration quietly announced the indefinite delay of the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada, which has been overwhelmingly approved by common-sense citizens, unions and anyone who supports America's energy independence.

Now we learn of two liberal West Coast billionaires, Jim and Tom Steyer, who have pledged more than $100 million to elect Democrats who will oppose the Keystone XL pipeline in favor of their own green energy business investments. And we're told only Republicans are cozy with big business. The hypocrisy is stunning.

We must elect common-sense conservatives who will repeal President Barack Obama's destructive energy policies, which he himself predicted would "cause electricity rates to skyrocket" and bankrupt coal-burning facilities (San Francisco Chronicle, January 2008). You can listen and watch for yourself on YouTube.
