Obama Vetoes Keystone Pipeline After Promoting It During 2012 Election

Do you remember when Obama went to Oklahoma to promote the Keystone pipeline in 2012?
Do you remember when he took credit for the oil boom in America?

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States.

Obama rejected the plan in 2011.

Today Obama vetoed legislation that approved construction of the Keystone XL pipeline.
