    Exactly, labor unions are for it. The problem is, the environmentalists are against it. Both groups tend to support Democrats, so any decision is liable to alienate a part of the Democratic base. That's the real reason why the Republicans are so anxious to force a decision to be made, and why the Democrats want to drag their heels until after the election.

    As for Romney, we should have elected him, but we didn't, so the North America energy plan along with a whole lot more is not going to happen at least until after the 2016 election.

    I may be wrong but wasn't there a time when elected leaders did what they thought was best for the country?

    Not any time recently. It's all about what's good for the party.

What say ye?



    The Obama administration is extending indefinitely the amount of time federal agencies have to review the Keystone XL pipeline, the State Department said Friday, likely punting the decision over the controversial oil pipeline until after the midterm elections.

    The State Department didn't say how much longer it will grant agencies to weigh in but cited a recent decision by a Nebraska judge that overturned a state law that allowed the pipeline's path through the state, prompting uncertainty and an ongoing legal battle. Nebraska's Supreme Court isn't expected to rule for another several months, and there could be more legal maneuvering after that. The delay potentially frees President Barack Obama to avoid making a final call on the pipeline until after the November election.

    "The agency consultation process is not starting over. The process is ongoing, and the department and relevant agencies are actively continuing their work in assessing the permit application," the State Department said in a statement.

    In January, the State Department said that building the pipeline would not significantly boost carbon emissions because the oil was likely to find its way to market no matter what. Transporting the oil by rail or truck would cause greater environmental problems than the pipeline, the report said.

    The State Department has jurisdiction because the pipeline would cross the border between the U.S. and Canada.....snip~

    US delays review of Keystone XL pipeline

    Just love wathing "conservatives" be full blown supporters of using imminent domain to take land away from people just so they can add 20 full time jobs. Not to mention that we won't see any of that oil for our country's beneifit all while making the U.S. become Canada's trashcan and spill absorber and cleanup crew because they don't want to do it themselves.


    Why the hell do people support conservatism? There is no rhyme or reason.

    Strengthened and deepened infrastructure will be worth quite a bit more than 20 jobs, and pipeline transport is the cleanest alternative.

    B.S. the cleanest way is to not transport some other country's multinational coporation's garbage at all. This pipeline, like all pipelines will leak. They all leak. This one while running through the water supply of 13 states. Another note... this is tar SANDS oil. It is liquid sandpaper. It will leak and it will leak faster than any other pipeline. That fluid sandpaper will destroy the joints and the pipe itself in record time.

    But just keep backing imminent domain like a good conservative... for 20 jobs.

    Since I'm not a conservative you'll have to try some other line.

    History's future grades for Obama's Presidency:

    Environmentalist pandering: A+
    The Economy: F-

    Let's see them try to sugarcoat those facts in 20 years.
