    While the State Department is reviewing the proposal, Obama has said he will make the final decision on the pipeline based on the national interest.
    there can't be that much built in indecision; in fact the OP says something about more comments need to be considered. "comments" after 5+ years?

    You mean billionaires like Tom Steyer? He's pledged $50 million of his own dollars and says he will raise $50 million more for Dems that oppose Keystone and other AGW targets of the looney left. He's even going after Dems that support the XL pipeline.

    just how much more time? 5 years isn't enough time to make a decision?. I guess not - not till we are safely past the midterms
    Obama continues to demonstrate how unfit he is to be leader of the free world. Everything is political with him. Everything. If this project is in the interest of the nation then he should approve it at once. If there is just cause to show the nation is better off without it, he should man up, make the case and reject its construction. If the guy doesn't like making decisions, he should never have run for the office. If he lacks the courage to make a tough decision, he should let Biden make it for him. But he should do SOMETHING. It is really embarrassing to see an American president show such cowardice.

    Maybe we can get them to merge the threads.
    Hi MMC

    sure it's 100% political; not exactly executive leadership, when the administration says it "will be decided on national interest" what is going to change except for the midterms

    Tar sand petroleum has been moving through the U.S. From Canada for a long time now. Keystone XL will just make it faster and safer.

    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.
    So that is justification for the use of their land..."it is burried"?

    If a govenment agency wanted to bury waste in your backyard...is that cool, its underground.

    Looks like you are against underground electrical lines, gas lines, cable tv/internet lines, etc., etc.

    Very short sighted.

    Everyone of those utilities benefits the homeowner directly and the community as a whole. Easements are for public utilites and I agree with those uses...living in a civil society.

    XL is a commercial venture. It is eminate domain at its very worst.
