so lets start here...not bad, a shout out for an excellent project in excellent time, asking, why not now? Right? A plaintive challenge if you will, for doing what America has done before and can do again. Think this big?.... MSNBC's Rachel Maddow: The Hoover Dam http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=s0gNga6v9EY#t=3s If only..... well, lets see, a study which was in the making for over 3 years ( 4 come April) and had cleared all hurdles, the state dept. dept of interior etc etc etc ....but apparently Obama has killed the pipeline, part of the excuse is and this is key; the gop started a 60 day clock for a decision, up or down, so he is 'forced' to say no. Hogwash, we are going into 4 years. They knew and know all they need to. That is a dishonest excuse. The Hoover Dam? ground broken- March 1931. dedicated by FDR Sept. 1935. We can build so vast and complicated a structure in 4.5 years BUT, but we cannot even decide with the plethora of agencies, the sheer mass of gov. bodies we have thrown at it, to build a relatively crude ( no pun intended) Pipeline in the same time. Its simple really; he doesn't want to build it, period. He should just man up and say so. Lean Forward is now lead from the rear or run away. to bad.
