    It will be in the bank, for use as needed.

    And if the lawsuits againist keystone kill the pipeline, the issue is moot.

    No he didn't. Where did you get that? Obama knew that if was going to pass which is why he stated clearly that he would veto it. How is that a defeat for President Obama? You act as if a bill has never made it to the President's desk that was vetoed.

    No lawsuit will kill it. That is not a concern.

    He is never going to sign it. And...I don't think the pipeline will be the powerful issue that you want it to be. Certainly not the kind that is going to sway a lot of voters.

    I disagree. I think it will be powerful because it is simple and visible. As I posted earlier, I suspect Repubs are hoping for a veto.

    Are you kidding me?
    Even if this bill is enacted, Keystone is not a done deal??!!
    This Keystone crap is beginning to remind me of all those zombie movies.
    It never dies.
    No matter how cynical I become toward politicians, it's never enough.

    Heya JH. Well and that if he does Veto.....it will validate he went against what the People Wanted and were standing for. Also lets not forget.....the oil is still going to flow. It will just be moved in a more dangerous way. Thru trains and trucks, wherein the Demos want to get all those regulations going to scam money. While professing that they care so much about the environment.

    Yup. The irony is that pipelines are the safest, cleanest way to move the stuff.

    If that's their wish, they will get it. There is no doubt that it will be vetoed. How this is going to affect the 2016 election requires a pretty big stretch. Americans by and large are not passionate over the issue right now. What makes you think they are going to suddenly become passionate over it a year from now?
