    It would appear when Obama made the deal he had his fingers crossed with no intention of keeping it.

    The energy policies and actions (or rather inactions) of our government are as irresponsible, arrogant and incompetent as it gets.

    Yep, I've heard its the same in North Dakota due to the oil boom there. When I was in northeast Ohio a few weeks ago, they were saying they expected a similar boom from natural gas drilling.

    Eminent domain is standard practice for the routing of pipelines. Just as it is with power transmission lines.

    Secondly, oil pipelines are uber-safe. Even when built "over aquifers".
    Click here to see the abundance of pipelines already built over the Ogallala Aquifer.

    This is pure Obama and his tree-huggers. Time to throw the former out on his useless ass and compel the latter to suck a root.

    No, the deal made was that Obama would make a decision. He did.

    Obama cannot afford to completely lose the greens even at the expense of the economy, relations with neighbors and energy self-sufficiency. He's probably counting on a Repub third-party bleeding and doesn't want a green candidate hurting him. He's running around invading, regime toppling, nation building and droning the sht outta half the world. Think of the War Crime! The last thing he needs is an oil pipeline. What's next, Cheney VP?


    ps. Who's running Green?

    Sometimes I think obama is actually trying to destroy our economy. In an era of high unemployment and high gas prices which stifle economic growth he does this? "The enemy is within the gates".

    They threatened to use eminent domain to acquire 20% property of one guys property.So I imagine they probably want close to that with other properties.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/18/us...pagewanted=all
    Randy Thompson, a cattle buyer in Nebraska, was informed that if he did not grant pipeline access to 80 of the 400 acres left to him by his mother along the Platte River, Keystone will use eminent domain to acquire the easement.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Do you approve of Obama's actions of rejecting jobs? How is that Hope and Change?

    I approve of him rejecting Republicans for not giving him enough time for impact studies to be done.

    I know cons like yourself don't care about the environment, eminent domain being used against people, or proper studies being done. It's ok, we are used to that from ignorant people and Obama just said no to those ignorant people.
