Can you believe this? In the BND on the Opinion Page, the title of this column is “U.S. Deal Gives Iran a Free Hand But Canada Relationship Suffers.”

Our relationship with Canada has long been a key component of our national security. Our 5,500 miles of common borders have been at peace for over 200 years. Canada is also America’s safest and most stable supplier of energy. Ninety percent of Canada’s oil and gas exports go to America.

Despite this, our so-called president (nincompoop) has chosen to jeopardize this relationship by stalling the XL Pipeline. (Jobs lost.) Meanwhile, the U.S. may allow Iran, a state sponsor of terrorism, to sell its oil without restriction.

Will we ever get rid of this president? I can’t wait.
