    But President Obama's denial of a permit for a new oil pipeline from Canada to Texas that has been worked on for years has angered many here who claim that the U.S. environmental lobby is harming their livelihoods without scientific basis.

    They even accuse it of illegally assisting Canadian environmental groups and say it's time to scrap plans to sell more oil to America and step up efforts to redirect the pipeline to the Pacific Coast and energy-hungry markets overseas.
    - Pro-oil Canada fights U.S. environmental groups

    Why would President Obama want to hinder our best source of oil? Makes no sense at all.
    As long as the Canadian oil company is using eminent domain I will support any efforts to block the pipeline.
    "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"

    The should build a pipeline east or west to their own ports.

    Oil companies are struggling to survive, and you want to deny them tax breaks?

    Yes, China needs the oil more than we do.

    Obama can't allow the private sector to create jobs. It would prove that his agenda is crap.

    Usually you guys blame the EPA. Which is it?

    Because Congress ordered the EPA to make a decision prematurely, not the State Department.

    It wasn't the EPA holding it up. They approved it. It was the State Department because involved a foreign country. Again, demonstrates a overly bureaucratic pile a of BS.

    Blocking the pipeline is costing us jobs and is increasing gas prices.

    Don't think it hits gas prices too much, does cost a lot of jobs though. Most temporary but they're at least high paying.
