Keystone XL Debate Continues: Did Obama Sell Project's Job Potential Short?

From News OK:
During a jobs speech Tuesday in Tennessee, Obama downplayed the pipeline's effect on jobs, calling it a "blip" compared with the overall economy. He also made that point in an interview with The New York Times last week.
The president correctly characterized the project's overall effect on U.S. employment but underestimated the number of jobs it would create.
The $7 billion pipeline has become a contentious issue. Project supporters, including unions and lawmakers from both parties, tout the jobs it would create and demand its approval, while environmentalists urge the president to reject it, saying it would carry dirty, carbon-intensive oil.
