    Could US lose access to Keystone oil? Canada moves to Plan B

    With the Canada-to-Texas Keystone XL pipeline stuck in limbo on the U.S. side, Canada’s Energy Board recently gave a thumbs up to a $6.5 billion pipeline designed to carry 525,000 barrels of oil per day from the oil sands of Alberta to ships on the British Columbia coast. The final destination is most likely Asia. The development has the U.S. oil industry attacking the Obama administration over its drawn-out process.
    “It’s taken longer to approve the Keystone XL pipeline than it did to win World War II, longer than it took us to put a man in space, and almost as long as it took to build the Trans-Continental railroad 155 years ago,” said Jack Gerard, president of the American Petroleum Institute.

    Jobs, wealth, energy. Things we lose with that idiot in the White House.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    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?

    No, there is not a "non-partisan" answer. Spare the non-partisan bull**** okay? Obama's made it clear that he doesn't support "fossil fuels" and he won't back Keystone for idiotic "green" reasons. Throws billions at failures like Solyndra but Keystone isn't backed by a major donor and would piss off some of his more vocal base.

    There is NO Rationale "non-partisan" motivation to his behavior.

    I am sure we can lose the keystone pipeline. No doubt if it isn't approved in the near future Canada will have no other choice. IMO Not approving it is the president's way of saying thank you to the greens who supported him.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Basically, that and moving forward approving keystone isn't beneficial for the DNC in any strategic way.

    The oil is destined to be exported, that why they want it near the Gulf of Mexico.

    ... : Whatever happened to the concept of being the President of all the people, instead of a very small, very vocal minority? How much revenue, and how many jobs will never see the light of day? Sad...

    Basically, Obama caved to the "green" energy folks on this.
