    Remember all those jobs you promised? Have you forgotten already? Please Sir,approve the Keystone XL Pipeline right now. Americans are waiting to get back to work. Do it for your country. This is just a humble plea from a humble citizen and voter. So wadda ya say?

    Oh my gosh! Why in the world would Obama block this pipeline and the jobs? It makes no sense! he's a fucking job killer! Surely.....every one of those 20,00o people and the union thugs who support them will become ardent Obama supporters after they are forced to take government handouts and become dependent on the liberals to keep the handouts coming! It is all a great conspiracy!

    And these jobs wont cost the Taxpayer either. They're private-sector created jobs. So come on Mr. President.

    Not 3 years ago, Obama approved the Alberta Clipper pipeline.

    From the U.S. Department of State website:


    After considerable review and evaluation, on August 20, 2009, the Department issued a Presidential Permit to Enbridge Energy, Limited Partnership for the Alberta Clipper pipeline. In evaluating the Enbridge application, the Department worked in consultation with all relevant agencies and parties and with extensive public and stakeholder participation and outreach.

    The Department found that the addition of crude oil pipeline capacity between Canada and the United States will advance a number of strategic interests of the United States. These included increasing the diversity of available supplies among the United States’ worldwide crude oil sources in a time of considerable political tension in other major oil producing countries and regions; shortening the transportation pathway for crude oil supplies; and increasing crude oil supplies from a major non-Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries producer. Canada is a stable and reliable ally and trading partner of the United States, with which we have free trade agreements which augment the security of this energy supply.

    Approval of the permit sends a positive economic signal, in a difficult economic period, about the future reliability and availability of a portion of United States’ energy imports, and in the immediate term, this shovel-ready project will provide construction jobs for workers in the United States.


    U.S. Department of State

    So, exactly what happened since 2009? Why was this approved but the XL project is on the ropes?

    So the Republicans get some credit for creating jobs? That's a very small price for you and Democrats to pay for helping Americans out. It doesn't always have to be 'Party before Country.' Just let the Republicans get some credit and let's get Americans back to work.

    Clearly, Obama is trying to enlarge the dependant class in America. Listen to Paulitician here.....he is surely correct in thinking that Obama is using this issue as a way to deprive the GOP of the ability to lay claim to job growth. It is so transparent! there is no way that the GOP wants to saddle the Democratic party with blame for killing the payroll tax cut by attching this pipeline to it. That would NEVER happen.

    On this one I don't get Obama at all. The zealots against this are a tiny voting group.

    And I've been reading articles that Union leaders are very angry with Obama over this.

    Despite what the White House has to say, union leaders are angry over the decision and released statements expressing their high disappointment in the President and the administration.

    A statement by Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA, is quoted saying “The Administration chose to support environmentalists over jobs – job-killers win, American workers lose.”
