    I just hope Obama does the right thing and veto's this. That will make up for a few of his lies.

    You may be right, and he'll veto it. But he hasn't vetoed it yet.
    Anyone who thinks he isn't going to veto this is a fool.

    So what? Its not an issue that most voters really care that strongly about one way or the other. He'll veto it and in a week....no one will care except for the Republicans that hoped to make some political points that never materialized. Yawn......

    You hope so but not necessarily so.

    Well, that'd be according to you. I've not said that I believe that he'll veto it, and I've not said that he would.

    All I've said is that he hasn't yet, which, last I checked, is factual.

    Of course, now that everyone's remembering what cheap gas is like, and I'm sure do like it, how are they going to interpret Obama's the veto of the XL bill? (Never mind what his Sec of Energy said oh so long ago). How would that veto set the stage for the Democratic primary candidates? Put them at a disadvantage? Maybe. Maybe not?

    I wasn't commenting on you specifically. I was commenting on anyone nave enough to believe that Obama isn't going to Veto this. Its a done deal.

    As for cheap gas. the pipeline will have little to no effect on the price of gas. Its a drop in the bucket.....

    Okay, NP....you seem to be in favor of this pipeline.
    Aren't you uneasy that a foreign corporation is using eminent domain to force US citizens to relinquish their property rights?
    Doesn't that bother you a little?

    I still find it interesting that conservatives support stealing land from people and giving that land to private organizations. Are these conservatives aware eminent domain was only meant to be used by the government for public use? It was not meant to be used to expand private enterprise.

    As it should.
    I'm not a big fan of the eminent domain process.
    I think it's been misused and abused in certain instances, but the idea of a foreign entity using the process is particularly revolting.
