    Re: Obama Administration Approves Key Portion of The Keystone Pipeline

    LOL... Obama's loser base won him the election last time and is more than likely to help him win it again.

    Anyway, I knew the right would find some meaningless reason to object.
    Does anyone else on this forum find this as funny as me?

    Yeah, until it's a Democrat doing it, then you somehow find a way to object.

    Re: Obama Administration Approves Key Portion of The Keystone Pipeline

    Obama said, originally, he needed more time to study the Keystone Pipeline, and that's just what he did. If I lived in those states close to the sandhills, I'd be very concerned about a pipeline going through a hugely important aquafier.

    The oil will be going to the world market and likely won't effect our prices at all. As someone said in another thread, the only sure way of managing American oil for Americans, would be to nationalize our public land oil resources. Companies would go nuts if the government tried to do that, and the conservatives would be screaming socialism.

    Poor Obama...

    First, he puts off his decision on the pipeline with his "environmental" excuses...when what he really wanted was to put off the decision until after the election. That way he could cater to his environmentalist liberal base.

    Then, he gets smacked around by the Republicans and has to make a stand...and gets more flak for not allowing the creation of jobs.

    Then, gas and oil prices skyrocket and he's seen as not doing anything about it...in fact, he's seen as part of the problem.

    So, to salvage some campaign capital, he throws his environmentalist base under the bus and approves the pipeline.


    It's a wonder he doesn't get neck strains from all the pretzel-like twisting and turning he's doing. I can't help but wonder if his loss of credibility from these flip-flops is worth it to him. Is getting re-elected REALLY worth it?

    Obama supporters have to be the most spineless hypocritical losers to walk the face of the planet. These are self-proclaimed liberals basically voting for and justifying the extension of Bush-era policies. How much dumber and more of a subservient political hack can one get?
    Lets please stay on topic. This post has absolutely nothing to do with the keystone pipeline. I am sorry you feel that way about the majority of Americans. Lets grow up a little bit and talk like an adult. If name calling is all you have on the current incumbent and his supporters..... I would strongly consider educating yourself before making elementary level posts.

    If its all about the election and he disapproved the pipeline to pander to environmentalists, then we must assume that the environmentalist liberal base are a strong group for support than conservatives. Again, if its all about the election then the message of the group doesnt matter only who can get him elected, so I assume he picked the strongest group to pander to first. But if he picked the strongest group first, then why would he reverse part of his decision, if it only weakened his appeal to the strongest electoral group?

    You're logic doesn't make sense. I'm not saying Obama did this for any reason, but clearly he didn't do it for the reason you've stated because it would help him accomplish none of the goals you says he has. Why would he trade the strong base for salvage?

    Uh...do you even bother to research before you voice opinion?

    ""The Gulf Coast project will transport growing supplies of U.S. crude oil to meet refinery demand in Texas," TransCanada said in a statement. "Gulf Coast refineries can then access lower cost domestic production and avoid paying a premium to foreign oil producers. This would reduce the United States' dependence on foreign crude and allow Americans to use more of the crude oil produced in their own country."

    Last month, Obama rejected TransCanada's permit for the northern leg after a multiyear federal review process. Many environmentalists and Nebraska state leaders had joined forces to oppose the XL's planned route through the Sand Hills and over the enormous Ogallala Aquifer in the region.

    Congressional Republicans, as part of an unrelated tax deal, had required Obama to make a decision on the northern pipeline by Feb. 21.

    Obama has supported the stand-alone southern leg for the Keystone and has not ruled out future consideration of the northern section.

    "As the president made clear in January, we support the company's interest in proceeding with this project, which will help address the bottleneck of oil in Cushing that has resulted in large part from increased domestic oil production, currently at an eight year high," a White House statement said Monday. "Moving oil from the Midwest to the world-class, state-of-the-art refineries on the Gulf Coast will modernize our infrastructure, create jobs, and encourage American energy production."

    This pipeline, though indeed a part of the Keystone system, is meant to solve an issue with Domestic Supplies rather than Canadian. I has been not only supported, but fast tracked by the White House the whole time.

    Your silly spinning is of epic failure...If you are going to try to debase your President, at least know what you are typing about.

    Since no one told you, I will: Khayembii is left leaning on most issues. You accusing him of being a rightist partisan is high irony. Might want to walk back those posts or get a better clue about posters before you toss those labels around. Or you might want to refute him instead of tossing labels around at ALL.
