    This administration never said they were against the pipeline in general. It's just another wild stab into the dark by the impetuous wing of the right.

    In bold (from the OP article) is their objection.
    "The rushed and arbitrary deadline insisted on by Congressional Republicans prevented a full assessment of the pipeline's impact, especially the health and safety of the American people, as well as our environment," Obama said in a statement.

    The pipeline may not be dead though. The State Department, which was tasked with issuing the permit, said the denial does not "preclude any subsequent applications."

    What do you think will happen? Do you believe no oil will go to China?

    Obama said no. Guess who said yes we want your oil Canada? Thats right China did. And Canadas PM, Stephan Harper said that they will sell it to who wants it, China. Good going Obama, Canada is our friend why does this administration continue to treat our friends/allies like ****? Harper also said "Canada wants to diversify its energy sales away from the United States" during a visit to China last Friday.

    Canada PM: Will sell oil to China, raise human rights issues

    Right. They want more studies, despite this thing already being studied for years. If you don't mind spending the money you can study it for several generations.
