    US delays Review of Keystone XL Pipeline.....

    Once again Obama shows he is not about jobs and bends to his special interests. As well as stick it Right into the Republican's eyes since they were hoping to work out a deal with him. No time limit.....just hold off indefinitely. There is no reason for the Republicans to trust him on anything he states. Now Canada will proceed to sell to China. No pick up on the jobs and revenue. 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~

    I have a friend who is a mid-level administrator for the Department of the Interior and recently he told me that without a doubt the pipeline is going to be approved. Every agency has been told to push it through as it will be a reality. Why this move then by the President? Politics pure and simple. Once the mid-terms are over, the pipeline will be approved.

    There is no possibility of the US allowing China to control this oil. The rest is theater.

    That's exactly why he is making such a move.....while he continues to Demonize The Republicans and their ideology and plans. Yet none call him out enough to make such a big to do with the press over it. All due to worrying about belittling him on the grand Stage.

    To hell with that.....when a fool acts Rightly so.....then Let the fool know it, even if causes him to suffer humiliation in front of the Camera.

    Well, at least the MS is getting it out that it is political play and not one that would help the country.

    The Keystone is a lose - lose for the president and the Democrats. If it is approved, then the environmental community will be unhappy. If it isn't approved, labor will be unhappy. Both are supporters of Democrats.

    Like Harry Truman said, "No matter what you do in this job, some SOB doesn't like it." So, someone won't like it, but at least they won't like it after the November election.

    I'm surprised the New Breed found the Ole Book. Especially with the Me, me, and me too, generation.

    Lets be clear. Every day of delay of the pipeline is more profit for Warren Buffets rail system. There is a reason for his decision and as usual its "special."
