Time for President Obama to Choose Sides on Keystone XL

The two sides in the fight over the Keystone XL were put in sharp relief this morning in Washington, D.C.

He can side with the fossil fuel industry and people like API President Jack Gerard, who was a top Mitt Romney supporter, and the Koch Brothers, who would reap huge benefits from Keystone XL.
