    Obama the pig says no to Canada and allows the nuts in the Middle East to burn the oil refineries and sends troops back to the Middle East. Yeah, he has got to be one of the greatest stooges of all time.

    No you haven't overreacted to this. In fact you brought some facts to the table. You'll notice that plenty of other righties certainly have their collective bvds twisted around their ears..

    more so at the cost of jobs and energy that could have flowed into the US. announcing the buiding of the pipeline might have releaved some stress on the oil market.
    nope.
    Nobody owns the oilsands other than the Canadian and Provincial governments, who issue permits to companies to extract the oil and ship it to market in exchange for royalty payments to the governments. The Chinese do have interests in some of the companies that have been created and/or are holders of such permits, but they by no means have "a majority stake in the oil sands" - that's just nonsense.

    That's US politics and enviro-politics in action - no different from those on the left bleating away that the Canadian oilsands are going to destroy the planet. But a discussion containing both views and a few facts is good for everyone, no?

    Obama’s inability to make a decision on Keystone has finally yielded a result – Canada has made the decision for him.

    Breitbart reports Canada has just approved the Enbridge Northern Gateway Project – a major pipeline to ship Canadian oil to Asia.

    The Canadian oil will still be burnt – in Asia, instead of America.

    All the jobs and energy security which Canadian oil could have delivered to America, will instead be delivered to Asia


    Way to go Barry.
    This simply means the Untied States will be more reliant on middle east oil and the chances of being involved in another war over goes up dramatically to protect the shipping lanes and the middle east oil supply. I think all one needed to do was look at the events going on in Iraq today which to anyone with common sense, the Keystone was a no brainier. We already have 186,000 miles of liquid petroleum pipelines in the U.S., what is the big deal in adding another 2-3,000 miles?
    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.

    True that, Americans have been allowing presidents to get away with wrong doing for sometime, and incase you haven't noticed or are reticent to admit, presidential wrong doing from both parties has been overlooked. It's called partisanship. You already know damn well that democratic Americans are going to rationalise wrong doing in their party, now then, take the next step. Attacking partisan politics would be far more constructive than finger pointing. As to the pipeline, I'm amongst the few Americans that don't want the thing running through the heartland.

    The US should be reliant on renewable energy soon, unfortunately dirty crude still rules the day, but not to much worry about US dependence on MEoil.

    That is good news, the more energy self sufficient we are the less chance of having to get involved in a war in the middle east. I wonder if we were energy self sufficient back in 1991, desert storm if we would have cared one iota if Saddam took over Kuwait.

    I can appreciate that - there are, however, oil producers in the midwest and plains of the USA who are anxious for this pipeline to be built so that they too have a vehicle to get their oil to market. It's not just causing Canada inconvenience, but America as well. But those aren't states that voted for Obama or Democrats much anyway, so there's no political harm in Obama's position.
