Stupidity is more dangerous than weakness. Especially self-satisfied, know-it-all stupidity.

I got a bad feeling back when Bush strutted under the Mission Accomplished sign. The feeling has worsened ever since.

Must say I totally disagree with the conclusions here-And just when did the pipeline become the nadir of US Canada relations?

The latest edition of Rasmussen Reports found 61 per cent of likely U.S. voters support building Keystone XL. Obama’s own State Department has given the project the green-light and, moreover, Canada needs that pipeline to get its product to market.

Nonetheless, Obama puts political gain ahead of friendly relations with a long-time ally, for he won’t do anything to cross billionaire climate activist Tom Steyer, who reportedly plans to provide millions for the 2014 congressional elections, and who is a staunch opponent of constructing the pipeline.

Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska called the Keystone XL decision’s delay “a stunning act of political cowardice.”

I don’t know whether or not Obama is a coward, but he sure isn’t acting like the leader of Canada’s staunchest ally. Really, with friends like Barak Obama, Canada doesn’t need enemies.

Barack Obama: statesman and leader of the free world or just another Chicago-style political boss?

Fine. Then build it across YOUR land. Why should we have to be the ones that have to clean up an environmental disaster when (not if) the damn thing springs a leak and spills oil all over the place?

seriously?

In what could have been President Obama’s crowning foreign policy achievement, he and Kerry couldn’t get the peace talks between the Israelis and the Palestinians off the ground. And, today, Israel has suspended the talks in response to a reconciliation deal between Hamas and Fatah. America led by Barack Obama clearly lacks the moral suasion needed to bring such fractious parties together and to “make” them keep talking to one another.

Yes, every other President made such progress there. ///

what a load of crap.

re: #3 Bubblehead II

Trains carry that same oil now. Going on the historical record and recent experience, trains are more prone to run into things than pipelines are.

As a result, there are more spills and more damage and more fatalities than there would be with a pipeline. The oil still moves to the same refineries, but it moves at greater cost, with more spills and fatalities and general yuck.

What refineries are these of which you speak? The Keystone pipeline is designed to deliver unrefined (but thinned) Canadian shale oil to the Gulf of Mexico for overseas export. Only a very tiny percentage of the oil transported through the pipeline is intended to be marketed for domestic U.S. consumption.

To economic free zones to boot. We won’t be getting any revenues from it.
We get very little benefit for huge risks. If Canadians want it, build the damn thing in Canada.
