The Pipeline to Nowhere

Thursday, March 22nd at 4:03PM EDT

Today, President Obama announced he will “fast track” the permitting of the southern half of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. It’s a far cry from what the pipeline’s backers had sought, and the timing of the announcement has led to suspicions that the Obama administration is seeking a way to blunt criticism of the January rejection of the full project. The recent rise in gas prices also has had the president looking for ways to show that he is trying to help bring down the cost of energy even while claiming a general inability of government to do so.

Needless to say, there will be mixed reactions to this partial permitting announcement. Although most would have to acknowledge some benefit to the partial construction of the pipeline, the section being fast-tracked is only a fraction of the total project. As the general election season draws near, will the Keystone XL Pipeline turn into the 2012 version of Sarah Palin’s support for the Bridge to Nowhere that was resurrected as an issue when she was named John McCain’s running mate? Except in this case, it wouldn’t be support for an expensive government project with questionable benefits, but rather the government’s lack of support for a private sector project with multiple unquestionable benefits, not the least of which would be thousands of jobs. The president can only hope that the parallel doesn’t catch on.

At what point will the left stop their apologies for the obama regimes failures. Will it be when they are standing in soup lines?

No. They will then be thanking Obama for the soup.

:lol: :lol:


How's he going to "fast track"? His approval is not required, due to it not crossing any international boundaries.


If he wanted to fast track it, shovel ready projects like this would have been included in the stimulus package 3 years ago.


Officials of TransCanada, the builder of the pipeline, were present at the event but declined to comment. After the White House announced presidential directives Wednesday to expedite the project, a company official said they didn't expect the development to speed up the project.

Just what would they say "Well Mr. President you have no say in this project" Obama was an idiot to make the statement about fast tracking the project. but the truly sad part is many of his koolaid drinking supporters will give him credit for the pipeline he HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH. :roll:
