Letter to the editor: Not believing what president dishes out

After watching President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech and listening

to the way he stretches the truth or ignores it completely to deceive us, I will believe he wants to put people back to work when he lifts the ban on the Keystone pipeline.

The pipeline project will put 120,00 people to work in high paying jobs, will reduce our dependence on importing oil from countries which hate us, and will ensure that oil taken from the ground in North America will be available for use in this country, not exported to Communist China.

Until he puts the interests of this country and our people ahead of the radical environmentalists, I will consider that what he said in his speech as bunkum, phony platitudes to distract us while he leads us to national ruin.
