You almost nailed it. I mean really nailed it. One of the primary opponents to the Keystone project is a guy named Warren Buffet who sleeps over at the white house once in a while and has the bama-ear. Warren really thinks the pipeline stinks and is horrible, but he isn't an environmentalist - he's an opportunist. His trains carry oil!
"What difference" "does it make?"
Do you have a non-partisan opinion as to why Obama is stalling on this? A reason, not a rant please. Even if you disagree with the reason - what is the actual reason (in Obama's view)? Do you know? Does anybody?
You responded: To destroy America. That's why
So I asked: Seems like a circuitous route to go about destroying America. Why not start a nuclear war or something more definitive?
So, lets start over. Why would Obama want to "destroy" (your words) America? Change America or Socialize America, you might have a case. But destroy - why would a) he even want to do that and b) if he did, why use such an obscure method such as delaying a pipeline?
If my question is not relevant or intelligent enough to satisfy you, then please don't bother responding. I'm trying to have a useful and civilized conversation. I'm sure as hell no Obama fan but my personal distaste for him does not invalidate my questions.
Will Keystone XL Pipeline Create Many Construction Jobs? | Energy Economy | LiveScience
Why do you want this toxic sludge traveling through the US to create 50 permanent jobs and 4,000 temporary jobs? A good highway bill would do much more for America; short-term and more importantly, long-term.
It's Canadian sludge.... its about time they take the risk of piping through their Rockies...

My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
What is the big deal? So the pipeline does not go through...so what?
Oil can be shipped by rail at a cost (by my understanding) not that much greater then by pipeline.
And if Canada sends the oil to it's west coast and ships it from there, who is to say it won't ship some/much/most of it to America?
Sure, a pipeline is convenient...but it also forces Canada to further depend on America for it's economy. Were I the Canadian PM, I would either forget the pipeline OR encourage both the Keystone and one to the west coast...keep my options open.
From what I understand, Canada's oil production is going to grow hugely over the next few years...why should they limit their market to - in essence - just America?
