Gingrich on Obama’s Keystone Decision: “This Is a Stunningly Stupid Thing to Do”
Newt says Obama’s decision to nix the Keystone pipeline is “Stunningly Stupid.”
POLITICO’s Ginger Gibson reports from the trail in South Carolina that Newt Gingrich is taking the Obama administration to task over the forthcoming decision to pull the plug on the U.S.-Canadian oil pipeline:
Newt Gingrich, who frequently talks about the Keystone Pipeline in his stump speech, railed on the news that President Obama is rejecting the permit.
Speaking to a standing-room only crowd of about 350 people in Warrenville, S.C., “boos” erupted when Gingrich said the pipeline had been “vetoed.”
“Now, this is a stunningly,” Gingrich began until he was interuppted by a crowd members shouting “stupid mistake.”
After pausing for a moment Gingrich responded, “This is a stunningly stupid thing to do.”
He can’t help it, Newt. It’s waht he does – kills jobs, plays golf.
