Obama Running Out of Reasons
to Reject Keystone XL

Associated Press, by Nedra Pickler

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 2/1/2014 4:19:14 AM

WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama is running out of reasons to say no to Keystone XL, the proposed oil pipeline that´s long been looming over his environmental legacy. Five years after the pipeline´s backers first asked the Obama administration for approval, the project remains in limbo, stuck in a complex regulatory process that has enabled Obama to put off what will inevitably be a politically explosive decision. But the release Friday of a long-awaited government report removes a major excuse for delay, ramping up pressure on the president to make a call. The State Department´s report raised no significant environmental objections to

Headlines are increasingly becoming a source of amusement for me. "..running out of reasons..." It´s almost as if the AP accidentally implied that he´s looking for reasons. If they had used the word "excuses" it would have been an honest headline. Why not? He can do as he pleases, he doesn´t need any stinking reasons or excuses.

A moment of truth for the One. He is anti-capitalist, or not? Does he really want the economy to improve, or not? Does he love America, or not? His many anti-capitalist, anti-American friends want to know, too.

Will the pipeline add jobs and strengthen the US energy industry? Yes.

Will the pipeline make more North American oil available to the world, lessening the domination of the oil producing Muslim countries? Yes.

Then you know the answer to why Obama (PBUH) drags his feet and resists approving the pipeline.

The Communists first called it "global warming", whatever in the hell that falsely meant. It was the perfect new trick to control the ignorant masses. It was the newest invented form of communist like takeover of the economy. It failed utterly, so they faked it and gave it a new, even more stupidly meaningless name, "climate change", whatever the hell THAT means. Now the State Department is hedging with a new report. Maybe Obama´s environmental illness has no basis. Maybe five years of his spoiled stalling on the economy saving pipeline days are about to be over !
Here´s an opportunity for opportunist Kerry to please millions the easy way and loudly proclaim the pipeline okay, like it was his own idea. That would be a blast, and Obama would be left in the dust. Kerry doing something sensible. What a novel idea! It would be the perfect timing for this married rich guy to disavow the failing Liar/Imposter in the White House, at the risk of sudden death, of course.

#9 speaks the truth. Obama is a bizarre combination of a Communist and a slave to the crony capitalist bigwigs. How else to explain the relentless strangulation of Main Street and the immense prosperity of Wall Street? The little people are gradually forced into the Marxist equality of welfare programs while crony capitalists get richer and richer. Obama, of course, will be found hanging out with the crony capitalists. Come to think of it, so will Boehner and McConnell.

The blurb I heard on the radio this morning said that Obama wasn´t expected to make his decision for about a year, if then. He will drag this out until he sees which way the wind blows in the 2016 election. If it looks like a dimocrat will when the WH, he´ll ignore the pipeline. If it looks like a republican will win the WH, he´ll approve the pipeline just so he can take credit for it. I´m starting to think my middle name is ´´cynical´´.

Obama doesn´t need any reasons for any actions he may take as long as he still has his pen. Since the GOP isn´t calling him on it at the Supreme Court level he can and does anything he wants to, at any time.

Actually the Keystone Pipeline is old hat now since companies are fracking on private land.

This shows what a hypocritical liar he is. Whenever he has the chance, he brags about our oil production during his reign, but yet he has tried to block it in every way that he can. In other words, he palliates the Greens but gives everyone else the sense that he´s really on their side. You can´t excuse this by saying, ´Well, that´s politics´ unless you simultaneously acknowledge that the anointed one is nothing more than another politician.

13 - how many pipelines already crossed his lands? Those holdouts in Nebraska stopping the pipeline were probably promised millions for holding out. The pipeline has been re-routed and they missed out on their chance to harvest dollars for the easements.

The pipeline has had study after study done on it and it´s stoppage from construction is just another hit at the blue collar worker. obama would rather they be on the unemployment rolls.
The Southern Portion of the pipeline was completed in SPITE of the Fraud in the WH because he had NO jurisdiction over whether it could be built or not.

I would almost bet the farm that Obozo will NOT approve the building of the pipeline. He has vested too many words about "climate change" and "carbon emissions" and many other environmental subjects that he fears it would make him look like he can´t make a decision and stick with it. And the thing is that a large percentage of Americans and just about all of the rest of the world knows that he is two faced. And he is going to wait to see which way the political winds blow for his fellow socialists in the upcoming elections.

Obama ran out of reasons for delaying/rejecting the Keystone pipeline a long time ago.

The only reason the construction of Keystone XL is not underway is due to gutless appeasement of the environmental extremists. At the same time we are not benefitting from the jobs Keystone XL would provide.

And, so far, the environmental impact from transmitting the oil by rail is much greater than if it had been transmitted by pipeline.

And, this does not even included the lives lost in these railroad fires and explosions.

VATICAN CITY -- Pope Francis said Friday he took personal responsibility for the "evil" of priests who raped and molested children, asking forgiveness from victims and saying the church must be even bolder in its efforts to protect the young. It was the first time a pope has taken personal responsibility for the sex crimes of his priests and begged forgiveness. Francis made the off-the-cuff remarks after coming under criticism from victims´ advocacy groups for a perceived lack of attention to the sexual abuse scandal and ongoing demands that he sanction bishops who covered up for pedophiles.

WASHINGTON — After heightened public pressure, UPS has agreed to rehire the 250 workers it fired for staging a brief strike in late February. Workers at a Queens, N.Y, shipping facility walked off the job for 90 minutes in February to protest what they thought was the unjust firing of a co-worker. But UPS said that strike was “illegal,” a term the union disputes, due to the no-strike clause in their contract, and ultimately decided to terminate the workers who participated.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.
