    It's a great union labor issue.

    Re-read.....he didn't think he would need to. He didn't think it would pass. Especially after the test vote failed. He thought he had the Demos in line. That's with him coming out and threatening veto to the Repubs. As he surely wasn't talking to those who carry his water.

    No I don't act as so.....more than likely I have seen hundreds of vetos passed before you even saw your first one.

    The Keystone pipeline is gigantically overblown.

    have people never heard of trains? Even if it does not go through, trains can deliver whatever is needed...at somewhat higher costs.

    And with oil at $43 a barrel, this project is not a big deal at all at the present time.

    And the Jobs? Big deal. They are temporary and if creating jobs is all people want the government to do, then start the unemployed digging and filling up ditches.

    This is almost nothing more then politics. The reps think they can make points on it, so they push it. Period.

    If either party thought they could make points on ANYTHING...they would push it...even if they had no idea what it was about.


    This will mean little, Imo, for 2016. Most dens don't want the same pipeline and most reps do. So what? And even if Obama does something the dems don't like - like not vetoing it - in 2016 then Liz or Hilary can just say they disagree strongly with Obama not vetoing the pipeline.

    No way this means anything to who gets the WH in 2016, imo. It might affect the primaries to a point. But the actual election...not in any meaningful way.

    Yeah, but then the Demos can't scam as much money off of people then. Can't get their hands into that cookie jar as much. Which you know taking others money is how they get to live comfortably.

    The unions were for this and they will remember the lost jobs. Look at the democrat state senators that voted for it. Obama is not running in 2016 so he doesn't care who wins.
