    No brainer YES. People are naive if they think Brobama doesn't want the pipeline because he's worried about pissing of environmentalists. As if environmentalists are going to support anyone other than him. Besides, I'd imagine that by refusing it he's pissing off his union base to a far greater degree than he would his eco-terrorist base if he were to allow it. No, this isn't about pandering to segments of his base; this goes right to the heart of his agenda to crush private enterprise and nationalize US energy.

    He will eventually support the pipeline. After all,these are the "Shovel-Ready Jobs" he promised but never delivered. He's just taking his far Left 'Global Warming' base for another ride. He'll screw them over eventually. He always says one thing but does another. That's standard-operating-procedure for him.

    Reid told the house dems to renege on their word to vote the omin bus spending bill, which is the budget for 2012.

    I guess that fits since they have not done a budget for the 2 years previously either, so what the heck, go for broke.

    so, who'ss holding the nation hostage now?

    Don't be so sure... shovel ready jobs don't pay as much as the "jobs" his Left Global Warming Base have. You know the jobs where they sit in an office and come up with new theories on how humans will destroy the planet in the next couple of decades. Those people make MILLIONS. Who would you rather have supporting your campaign, people with shovels or people with millions who can scare the shovel people into voting for you?:D

    That's what i always say. I'm so sick of them threatening to shut the Government down. It's just tired fear mongering. I'm over it. Let em shut it down and be done with it. I'm not afraid.

    I disagree; look at the big picture. By 2013 if god hates the world and Obama's still in office he'll be able to drop the hammer on the pipeline without having to worry about reelection. Like I said, if this decision right now were about political maneuvering he'd be MUCH better off just accepting it now. What he's doing right now makes him look bad to anyone who isn't an environmentalist troll and he knows that, but not ever allowing the pipeline is much more important to him in the big picture. Granted, if there's enough outrage he might have to give in but we'll see...

    Same here. Will Obama make another idiotic pronouncement that checks will not go out when by LAW they have to?
