Bloviating Zeppelin: Obama: Killed Keystone XL Pipeline AGAIN

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Obama: Killed Keystone XL Pipeline AGAIN


The Senate on Thursday rejected an attempt to fast-track the Keystone XL pipeline — barely.

The White House and Democratic leadership squeaked out a 56-42 vote on an amendment to the Senate’s highway bill, winning only because 60 votes were needed for passage.

President Barack Obama had personally lobbied Democrats with phone calls urging them to oppose the measure, as Republicans continue to push the pipeline as a job-creating project needed in these days of high gasoline prices.

Eleven Democratic senators crossed party lines to support the amendment: Max Baucus of Montana, Mark Begich of Alaska, Bob Casey of Pennsylvania, Kent Conrad of North Dakota, Kay Hagan of North Carolina, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, Mark Pryor of Arkansas, Jon Tester of Montana, and Jim Webb of Virginia.

No Republicans opposed the measure, but two senators — Mark Kirk of Illinois and John Thune of South Dakota were absent.

Mr Obama has said he doesn't want to "play politics" with Keystone XL. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said so as well on Thursday:
The president believes that it is wrong to play politics with a pipeline project whose route has yet to be proposed.

That's right. The Republicans are "playing politics" here.

Let's re-examine that line above: "President Barack Obama had personally lobbied Democrats with phone calls urging them to oppose the measure."

But because Mr Obama plays politics, then that's not "playing politics."

And let's further recall that it was only a very few months ago, last year, that Mr Obama rejected a Keystone route through Nebraska on the heels of his very own admin having declared the project "environmentally sound."

On the other hand, Mr Obama has no problem whatsoever with financing Brazil's oil drilling off its own shores, to the tune of hundreds and hundreds of millions of our taxpayer dollars.

This is a political issue, and it is Mr Obama who has publicly made it so, because he has some type of phobia against petroleum products. Courtesy of pressure from the Religious Left.

How else can you conceptualize the turning down of friendly Canadian oil and insisting that we suck the pipes of Saudi and Middle Eastern CONFLICT OIL?

He has agendas he isn't sharing with us.

Of course the Senate did what Obama wants.

We've got to overturn the Senate in November. Otherwise, we are doomed.

WSF: I would submit his most base agenda is Cloward-Piven, wrapped up in a foundation of "I don't much like this nation and I believe it needs to be knocked down to a level more equal to or lower than others."

AOW: Obama politicked all over the landscape on Thursday and twisted arms for votes. Simple.

NFO: he clearly CHOOSES CONFLICT OIL over friendly western oil. What does that tell you?

Obama goes the way of his raising and religion, he wants the USA to buy ARAB oil and thus support his agenda to bankrupt our nation..

Birds of a feather...

If Obama really was an America 1st POTUS we'd be building that pipeline and drilling rigs would look like a steel forest..

If a frog had wings...

It's a political blunder, too. Obama is not making a good case for his side, while it looks real bad to for him to endeavor to block Americans from these jobs, and to reduce the supply of oil (and increase gas prices) in this era of soaring gasoline prices.
