    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.
    Now that strikes me as a grossly uninformed reply. Ad-hominem much ? Eminent domain is normal for pipelines. And here is a link to the pipelines of the Midwest, with Keystone and Keystone XL indicated.

    More "impact studies" is the stuff of tree-hugging stupidity. See map

    I approve him rejecting a company that is using eminent domain.
    "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"

    We can't build pipelines and power lines, private companies, btw, without eminent domain. Never have without such. This isn't some hotel complex in Connecticut.

    Or there's one here, if you like.
    Is that permanent jobs? What about construction jobs which have a more immediate impact and requires a lot more workers?

    Eminent domain should never be used for private companies period.Most private companies do not use eminent domain. They can always change locations,reroute or redesign to fit on what they have or simply pay the owner what they want. Its private company they have no business using eminent domain,especially a foreign owned company.

    The story is just starting to break, but this is great news for people living in the regions that would be affected by this. The pipeline would have moved through very ecologically sensitive areas and the public was not consulted on this.

    Looks like the protesting paid off. It might still get the nod in further applications - and probably after the election - but at least for now the environment is that much safer.
    The right will use this against him, calling Obama 'job-killer'.

    I think this is a wash politically. Obama gets points from the greenies and loses points from the unions. Republicans get points from some of their constituents for supporting jobs and oil, but lose points from those who are paying more attention and who realize that Republicans did more to hurt their cause than they did to help it.
