"Now is the time to put country before party"

On many occasions, the President has urged Republicans to put their country before their party, and he did so once again yesterday.  On an entirely unrelated topic, the President has delayed the decision on the Keystone XL pipeline until after the election so as to avoid alienating organized labor or environmentalists, who are on opposite sides of the issue.  Because of the delay, the Chinese might step in and build a pipeline to the west coast of Canada so that oil can be exported across the Pacific instead of to the United States.
