    My impression about Obama since early in his presidency has been that when things look iffy, he hangs back.

    If something happens which he can take credit for, then he'll step up and act like he was part of it all along. If he can't figure out a way to use it for what he hopes will be good publicity, he keeps hanging back.

    That Obama struck again yesterday. Do Democrats not see this side of him? Or do they have to pretend not to because admitting it would lead to other uncomfortable questions?

    You are blaming the delay on Obama exclusively in your original post, yes? Still blinded by your partisanship?

    Obama always has an excuse. And he always has people to carry the water for him.

    Aren't your arms getting tired yet?

    This project was bungled. Obama has now punted it. And now it may be past saving.

    Both Prime Minister Harper and our Finance Minister have all ready gone "Fuck you" to Obama.

    We are going to bring the pipeline to ports to ship to Asia. You have such a horrid losing economy Canucks are getting to the point that we don't need you whatsoever.

    Now Levin last night recognized this move by the moronic twit in the WH is just to begin with cost 20,000 construction jobs.

    So to preserve his "enviro" bullshit, he just cost 20,000 construction workers their jobs.

    When you put an academic in office, this is what you get. I feel sorry for those and yes I listen to radio out of Fargo and Roseau Badger Greenbush who know what they just lost to the moronic twits out of Washington.
