    So it's still about politics with you people and your messaging war.
    Even oil executives now say the KXL wouldn't have made a damn bit of difference at this time.
    Unless of course that dirty oil was staying here in the USA, which it isn't.
    Good thing we're not allowing another country to dictate to us, don't you think ?

    Passage wasn't going to make any difference. She just wanted to be on record as introducing the bill. She never gave a flying **** if it passed.

    Maybe, but that's an important business there.

    No, you're the one that doesn't know. They spend a lot of money on high risk drilling that may not pan out for various reasons. Have you any idea how tiny OUR Big Oil really is?

    The Democrats have demonstrated some of the poorest politicking and messaging in recent memory. They have given the public no clear plan at a time when that is exactly what the voters want. This has only been trumped by the most histrionic hyperpartisanship that I have seen in my lifetime on the part of the Republicans. And that includes impeaching Clinton for a blow job. ****, the idiots on the left even made a snuff film about Bush. How do you top that?

    Unreal.

    But not to a business, thus not very relevant to "picking winners and losers" in this context.
