Rep. Allen West isn’t too happy about the State Department’s decision — or as West says, “Campaigner-in-Chief” Obama’s decision — to delay the Keystone XL Pipeline project, which means it’s time for another rhetoric-loaded statement from the congressman.

According to the State Department, a more thorough analysis of some of the issues regarding the pipeline — chiefly the environmental issues of running it through the Sand Hills in Nebraska — would put the project back up for consideration in 2013.

In West’s opinion, that’s “pathetic.”

“Campaigner-in-Chief is at it again, this time denying America a positive step towards achieving energy independence,” West says. “The President’s decision to delay further study of the Keystone XL oil sands project is an indicator that American jobs, restoring our economy, and our national security is not as important as his personal self-interest and that of radical environmentalists…..pathetic.”
