Karl Frisch, Bullfight Strategies joins Thom Hartmann. President Obama was in Oklahoma today where he reversed his position on the Keystone XL pipeline - and is fast-tracking approval of the southern portion of the pipeline to take Canadian tar sands from Canada down to shipping lanes in Texas. The current pipeline runs from Canada to Cushing, Oklahoma. The full proposed pipeline, not supported by the president would have crossed the US border in Montana down to Cushing and then to the Gulf Coast. The part President Obama announced today that he supports will run from Cushing, Oklahoma to the Gulf Coast. So why did the President reverse course here and give into most of the demands of big oil? And what are the political consequences of such a decision?
