In just the last week, the president has done four things that spell out trouble for the GOP agenda: vetoing the Keystone XL Pipeline, vetoing Obamacare repeals, drumming up resentment towards Boehner and Netanyahu, and calling the GOP to task on middle class economics.

Pope Francis To Big Oil And Others: God Says Go Frack Yourself And Stop Destroying The World (VIDEO)
This past week, the Pope has let the world know his views on climate change, climate deniers, deforestation and man’s abuse of nature.
Lawyers, plumbers, skateboard pros, and wildlife washers may be just a few of the KXL jobs Republicans think Keystone will create.
No matter how it plays out, Sanders’ amendment is going to be a win for progressives.
Native Americans send a New Year’s message to the GOP: Passing the Keystone Pipeline is a “death warrant to our environment” and would “be an act of war against our people.” The president of the Sioux tribes tells Congress why and what they intend to do to stop them.
Now that Michele Bachmann is leaving the House, Louie Gohmert takes the cake for the craziest, most disrespectful Republican in Congress.
At the last press conference of the 2014 year, President Obama emphasized one of the most important issues involved in the Keystone Pipeline debate: Keystone is “not American oil, it is Canadian oil.” What is in it for Americans?
Jesse Ventura smacks down Republicans, who he feels cater to the rich, white business owner.
The Keystone XL Pipeline has officially lost in the Senate. We can all breathe a sigh of relief.
Protesters: ”If Landrieu wants this pipeline so badly, they can go through HER front yard.”
The Democrats say they will not obstruct the party that has done nothing but obstruct them for the entire time this Administration has been in effect. Okay, then.

Anyone who needs proof of how the 1% who control much of the wealth in this country, use the Republican Party to advance their agenda and stifle any opposition to their greedy activities, need only watch this video record of the very nasty, unpleasant exchange that took place at the House Energy and Commerce Committee last Wednesday
The (tar)sands are running out for the Keystone XL pipeline.
The Congress hit a new high on the gridlock scale on how best to fund the extension. First, the GOP controlled House of Representatives passed legislation that would extend the payroll tax cut one year. However, Speaker Boehner and his crew did so by attaching a host of unrelated initiatives, including the 1700 mile Keystone pipeline.
Forget all the ‘fighting the good fight’ bravado from the Speaker of the House. Forget all the denials from congressional Republicans that they caved on their principles to “do the right thing.” Forget all of it. This was the political equivalent of the Alamo.
