Obama vows to reject “any effort to tie Keystone to the payroll tax cut.”

Boehner spox returns fire: “If President Obama threatens to veto it over a provision that creates American jobs, that’s a fight we’re ready to have.”

This is an unlovely holiday season spat. The demise of the Super Committee has led to personal, tense, constant warfare. And it is hard to see how that cycle gets broken anytime soon.
