We don't want a -- here we'll just take it over there Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper telling President Obama he will now be looking to China to sell its oil.
-- up to the White House a -- key decisions -- bill to -- pipeline from candidate to beat you last.
My next guess is right the US lose about 20000 jobs in the process.
The group he adds up its -- the president's delay in full page ads throughout the country.
US president Tom -- -- now Tom that the president has been saying.
Decision delayed is not necessarily decision denied you say it doesn't matter because these jobs are gonna go and.
Well if we were to move -- forward on this decision as soon as we do.
The company that are building the pipeline.
Will -- 40000 people over the -- of the next few years many thousands more and other jobs will be created because some construction.
And so if you wait until after the election you're gonna delay twelve or fifteen months.
Before this thing is done in a lot of people are not gonna get a job.
And R&A -- security is going to be further away.
And our friends in Canada who are very best friends are going to be turned down one more time and they're -- -- start building a pipeline.
As that the crime in this office said the West Coast.
And probably -- selling oil to China before selling oil to us and by the way it's our fault it's not there.
On do you think this is just that the Canadian prime minister though just playing hardball with the White House to say hey you better wake up and smelled it.
Crude oil here it's not showing your went.
I think the Canadian prime minister is laying out what his options are I really think that the company that is bringing oil.
-- of the ground and ready to sell.
You know has a lot of money invested and they've got to take a very careful look at where their priorities going to be now who knows for sure that we're gonna do this thing and in fifteen months what it.
You make of -- is right now between -- organization.
And the White House they've improved from the coldest days I'm wondering if they're getting cold again you're offices people can -- here right across the street from the White House.
And that there had been some overtures on both sides I'm wondering now whether this is so from all over him.
Not look -- -- our relationships -- fine right now every day mrs.
Obama and fellow that works for us that's working on employment veterans.
Employing veterans -- having a big event in Hawaii we're doing it all over the country mrs.
Obama was over here.
Last week we're doing things -- daily we had a big meeting with him in Hawaii very good relationships.
Because you go after a policy.
That is all politics.
And not good policy.
Doesn't mean you're having bad relationships -- the White House that means you're pointing out what exactly was done in exactly was not done.
So when you look at -- the number jobs the administration argues are turning around now we're beginning to see some consistent job growth -- very very minor job growth.
But enough to say as many in the white -- -- that the trend is their friend do you agree with that.
Well I think that trend past the 3% to quarterly growth.
An annual growth.
And I think if you can get growth you can create jobs until you do you won't and the best way.
In this country today to create jobs is the do the pipeline to go back to drilling oil it safely and soundly.
In the in the gulf and to do the other things that are very very clear that we can do to put people back to work.
We're going to need that oil we're gonna need that gas for a long time to come and we can do it safely and cleanly.
And to deny them doing that for political purposes in my in my view is very -- of those people that desperately needed job.
No -- on the White House is very quick to set this thing down or at least table it.
Not nearly so quick to.
Shutdown of a whole host of solar initiatives and projects -- Solyndra.
Obviously tipping its hand in its favoritism.
Do you think that that.
Hints of more problems to come just in general.
No I think first -- -- where an election season.
Traditionally for many years long before this administration we've called -- the silly season.
Where everybody is trying to position themselves with their constituents and how -- can operate but in this instance Terry O'Sullivan.
That means the labor is one of the really good -- unions in this country.
Came out and attacked this decision as you know just plain old politics.
And keeping his people out of jobs.
So why you have to do your silly season you ought to think about what you really want to do and that's put people back to work and that's the best chance than any candidate has to get elected.
Tom -- you could see again thank you very much.
Thank you very much --
