    Administration again delays Keystone pipeline decision

    The Obama administration on Friday extended the review period on the Keystone XL pipeline, perhaps pushing back a final decision on the disputed project until after the Nov. 4 congressional elections.
    The permit process will conclude once factors that have a significant impact on determining the national interest of the proposed project have been evaluated and appropriately reflected in the decision documents," the statement said, not providing a specific deadline. "The Department will give the agencies sufficient time to submit their views."

    Environmental advocates oppose the Keystone pipeline, saying it would cause ecological damage along its route from the tar sands of Canada to the Gulf Coast.

    Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., who faces a tough re-election bid in November, said "Today's decision by the Administration amounts to nothing short of an indefinite delay of the Keystone Pipeline

    Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., one of 11 Senate Democrats who signed a letter to Obama seeking a specific time frame for a Keystone decision, expressed frustration with the latest delay.
    "It's absolutely ridiculous that this well-over-five-year-long process is continuing for an undetermined amount of time," she said

    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

    I suspect after the midterms it will be

    A) a negotiating chip to use against a new congress,

    B) a hell no, and not only that but some form of permanent death nail

    This is what we call lack of leadership.
    not only has he pissed off states he has really ticked off his own party to the point they are going AWOL against him and looking
    to force reid to pass a bill both in the house and the senate and if so might override an obama veto.

    All the White House ever does it push things back. A national joke.

    You won't like the decision anyway, so why the rush? Obama will wait until the next President to make the "decision" and yes it is because he won't give the right more ammo for billionaire financed attack ads. No sane person not in the oil business would approve the XL pipeline. Let the Canadians deal with that sludge.

    You are just mad because Obama won't take that bait. He can wait until hell freezes over for that turkey.

    Exactly. Make a decision. Either yes or no. Either way, I don't really care much because I don't personally think this one pipeline will make that much difference. I'm just tired of hearing about it.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.
