    They dont have the power. The pipeline has nothing to do with protecting the states from invasion. It has nothing to do with promoting freedom.

    Construction jobs are by their nature temporary. Would you like to rescore the "stimulus" discounting all construction jobs both direct and indirect?

    Yet, here you are wondering why he doesn't create temporary jobs shipping Canadian oil to China.
    No - the alternative was a pipeline across Canada, ending on their West Coast, and floating straight to China.

    You do realize that it was an American request for proposal dating back to the Clinton era, as part of the then drive for self sufficiency. The US wanted this.

    The Keystone network, this is one phase of four, predominately carries crude for the American market .

    Obama has seized on this portion of the agreement and the "foreign oil" to bolster his case for not doing it.

    I suggest you do some research.

    Google TransCanada Pipeline and look at their American operations and the projection of permanent jobs as a result of this extension/expansion.

    Again, I am hoping Obama will veto early any attempt to force a start. Knowing the economic value now and down stream, I want this pipline 100% in Canada.

    Feel free to keep shipping it by rail

    I chose "I have no opinion" because I've seen too much from both sides, for and against, to know who's really right and who's wrong...or where the truth meets in the middle. I'm not ashamed to admit that I really don't know what the best course of action is here.

    I have no interest in the argument, other than the symbolic humor of the proposed arrangement.

    Re: Do you support the Keystone XL pipeline?

    Can anyone even figure out why this is an area of contentious debate? We're having massive arguments over:

    1) Whether to add a few thousand 2-year temp jobs.
    2) About 35 permanent jobs.
    3) Little to no affect on oil prices.

    Honestly, though... what gives? Why are we even talking about it? Either do it or don't, but let's not pretend like it's going to change anything for the better.
