    Petroleum producers plan presidential protest

    CUSHING, Okla. -- The President is scheduled to speak in Payne County this Thursday morning. It may be rural Oklahoma, but when it comes to pipelines, it's the Capitol. The President is expected to talk about energy, though many in that industry are not impressed.
    They are even planning to protest his visit, calling it a political ploy more than a genuine interest.
    Mike Cantrell with the Domestic Energy Producers Alliance says, "For the last three years he's been anti-fossil fuels."
    Mickey Thompson, an energy industry expert and political analyst, says, "He calls our industry an industry of the past and they'd like us to go away."
    The President is expected to mention his support for a pipeline running from Payne County to the gulf; it's the southern end of the “Keystone XL Pipeline.”
    Industry experts say while his support for the southern end is welcome, it's not needed.
    They build pipelines in the country all the time without needing presidential approval.
    The President's "green light" is only needed for approximately 50 feet on the northern end of the pipeline; that segment would cross the Canadian border.
    So far the President has delayed that project.

    So Barry says he is an "all of the above kind of guy" eh? Well, people that actually do the job of keep our lights on, and our cars full of gas say 'yeah, not so much...'

    Good for them.

    Who's Barry?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Interesting, although keystone wouldn't exactly cure our "dependence" as some would suggest, it seems like a no-brainer from most people's perspective. The republicans will milk this one for all it's worth.

    I don't sympathize with any company who uses eminent domain. So as far as I am concerned "Keystone XL Pipeline" can eat a dick.
    "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"

    As this term comes from the birther silliness, can I conclude you're a birther?

    Otherwise, it's just silly, like calling Bush Shrub.

    I honestly didn't think of that previously, I wonder why it hasn't been more commonly reported in the media..

    It is sometimes mentioned in my state.I think Unfortunately the governor of my state supports "Keystone XL Pipeline" ,so she won't side with the land owners whom the company is trying take property from.

    NYT did a token mention of it.

    Domain laws have got to be one of the more reprehensible laws on the books for me personally, If Obama was smart he would use that as an argument against the project instead of environmental concerns, he'd probably win a little more sympathy.
