Congressman Allen West (R-Fla.) called on the media to “stop being afraid” of President Barack Obama who is “destroying this country.” West made his remarks on Tuesday at a press conference in support of the TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline.

“It’s about time that I asked this from the media: Stop being afraid of this president,” said Rep. West.  “Stand up to him and call him out on the shirking of his duties and responsibilities.  The House Republicans are passing pieces of legislation, after pieces of legislation about jobs.”

“And here we got a president that’s gone off to Australia, playing golf in Hawaii, and you guys allow him to make this decision to shut down this Keystone XL project,” said West. “The media needs to call out this president and stop coming over here to the House Republicans and telling us what we’re not doing.  We’re the ones taking action.  The guy sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is destroying this country.” [Emphasis added]

The 1,661-mile, $7-billion pipeline, which would run from Alberta, Canada south to U.S. refineries on the Gulf Coast, was under review by the State Department until last week when President Obama announced that a decision on whether to approve the project would be postponed until early 2013. The White House said it wanted to consider a new route for the pipeline.

The Keystone project, if approved, would have created an estimated 20,000 jobs.

“This is the most important thing we have to understand,  America needs leadership right now and America does not have that,” said Rep. West on Tuesday.

    Suggest you go here: Allen West reads directly from the bill, and challenges anyone in attendance to tell him where in the document the offending passages an be found.
