    Can't quite put my finger on it, but there was something.

    Yup. Pretty obvious to most thinking, just not presidents.

    Exactly. Obama has seen fit to veto the Keystone-XL pipeline and put all the towns and neighborhoods through which the trains travel at risk, when there's a far better solution that many would rather have.
    "Women and children, and especially minorities will be at risk." Isn't that the usual old line from the Left? Obama will have blood on his hands. Seems an obvious political blunder on his part. A clear case of "I told you so".

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Yeah, pretty much. Ecomenalists. What's that famous little political quote overheard once: "I don't use oil. I ride the bus"?
    Ranks right up there with "We should just stop using oil."
    A distinct lack of understanding of the many, many, many things which petroleum is a source material for.

    I challenge anyone to actually live without consuming any oil, or any product / thing in which oil plays a part.
    I think you'd have to be living like back in the 1800 or 1700's. You first. Good luck with that.

    Many of those people have gone into stupid mode.

    Aren't Republicans the ones cutting transportation and infrastructure spending, and wouldn't they also be for deregulating the rail industry as well ?
