    From Fox News:

    Charles Krauthammer said Friday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that the latest delay of the Keystone XL is not about the oil or the environment, saying there is an "open and shut case" to build the pipeline.

    ..."This is the most open and shut case, for any energy project, for any project anywhere that I have ever seen," he said.

    Krauthammer said that the argument against the pipeline fails on its own terms.

    He said it is favorable "economically, in terms of national security, our independence on Venezuelans, on the Middle East, clearly in terms of jobs, in terms of energy independence..."

    Bought and paid for implies a fiduciary responsibility. You give me money and I will do your bidding.

    In one way we can take heart from this. The Obama Administration is in this very limited area keeping its word. They will ignore the Constitution, renege on treaties, abandon enforcement of laws, make up laws and enforce them passionately and deny video evidence of what was actually said or promised as they proceed with a different and completely dissimilar action.

    However, in this particular example, they are true to their bribes.

    Why not? the oil is moving with or without the pipeline, but is moving on trains and trucks instead in the cleaner, more economical and safer pipeline.

    The trucks and trains are worse for the environment and so are in opposition to the supposed green agenda of the uniformed, uneducated and unthinking opponents of the pipeline.

    As with most things green, mismanaged, misguided and effective only in symbolism.

    It's all just a part of the overall obama Energy Policy which is all of the above and none of the below.

    If he abandons this policy he will be leaving money on the table and he is unable to do this.

    They are not wasting their time.

    Because opposition to underground pipelines is based on rumor, innuendo, and stupidity. A year after the pipeline is installed, there will be no visible trace of it.

    they will be paid for their use of the land which is different than the federal government seizing control destroying property and killing livestock that doesn't belong to them.

    This is what happens when you have a President who governs by pandering and he has two pander-bears on different sides of the issue. You're left with a gutless President who doesn't want to destroy a summer of golf by angering one side or the other.

    It's also why the announcement was made on Good Friday, a day when most people aren't working, are observing religious services and/or are either on vacation or spending down time with family.

    The tar sand sludge is not moving and won't without that leak prone pipeline. We won't see a drop of it anyway because it is all for export. Why should we take all the risks and cancer because the Canadians don't want it in their country. Let them ship and refine it, we are already exporting 400,000 barrels of gasoline a day.
