One of the things we always have admired about Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill is that she isn’t afraid to butt heads with her party and with President Barack Obama in backing her beliefs and what’s good for her constituents. As all Americans should know by now, the president doesn’t want to dig into our energy reserves because he’s afraid he might lose a few votes to the environmentalists. The president has blocked the construction of the proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada to Texas.

TransCanada announced Monday that it was going ahead with part of the Keystone pipeline in Texas and Oklahoma which does not need federal approval. Sen. McCaskill said that’s “good news” and “a good step toward increasing energy production right here at home.”
