Barack Obama
Keystone veto was in U.S. interest
Keystone veto was in U.S. interest

The purpose of the Keystone XL pipeline is to make it easier for Canada to export some of filthiest crude oil on the planet — not to the U.S. (we don't need it) but to other countries. According to letter writer Al Eisner, over 65 percent of Americans want the pipeline built. (Do they really? I don't remember voting on it. Did I miss something?) He therefore condemns President Barack Obama for vetoing the Congressional bill to authorize the pipeline ("Override the Keystone veto," Feb. 26). I want to commend President Obama for acting for the benefit of 100 percent of Americans too young to vote as well as those yet unborn. Paul Romney, Baltimore
