    Hello, this is my first thread and I thought I would post one with a subject of great importance that has the possibility of affecting many Americans. I want your thoughts on this subject. It regards the Keystone Pipeline from Canada to the U.S. that will create instant jobs for many Americans looking for work. The president has threatened to veto the payroll tax cut extention if any attempt is made to link the pipeline to the bill. In my view any Pipeline = Jobs + Energy and in reality, a win, win deal. Do any of you think otherwise?


    President Obama Would Rather Extend Jobless Benefits Than Create Real Jobs - Investors.com

    Jobs: The president says that extending unemployment benefits and the payroll tax cut will create more jobs than an oil pipeline from Canada. There are at least 20,000 members of the 99% who would disagree.

    Any attempt to link the pipeline to a payroll tax cut extension will be vetoed, Obama said Wednesday as he stood next to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

    President Obama has dropped any pretense that delaying the pipeline that would bring Canadian tar-sands oil to American refineries is really related to environmental safety concerns.

    He knows it would create jobs, at least 20,000 directly and many more indirectly thanks to the multiplier effect he dismisses now but touted when he still believed in "shovel-ready" jobs that needed federal funding.

    "However many jobs might be generated by a Keystone pipeline," he said, "they're going to be a lot fewer than the jobs that are created by extending the payroll tax cut and extending unemployment insurance."

    And, it looks as though Obama may be losing his own support in the Senate over this. Will he veto it when it passes? I don't think he has the ba**s.

    You make a very valid point. This pipeline would create an awful lot of those 'Shovel-Ready' Jobs. Personally i think his resistance is all for show. This President is completely Corporate-Owned. He's likely going to pretend to placate his far Left base initially but then eventually go along with this pipeline. It is going to happen. Bank on it.

    Mr Obama is in a serious catch 22 with this bill.

    Don't believe the hype on this one. This President is just doing what he always does,which is to say one thing but do another. He will pretend to oppose this for a bit but eventually he will agree to it. He'll agree to it and then probably blame DA BOOOOOOOSH. Standard-operating-procedure for this President.

    It wasn't quite 3 years ago that Obama approved another Canada to U.S. pipeline - the Alberta Clipper. The State Department crowed about the jobs it would create. Hillary Clinton was on board, praising its construction.

    This all makes no sense. The guy's an idiot.

    His followers are the biggest dupes in history. He will screw his Left Wing kooks over on this one. He knows they're ignorant loons just as much as the rest of the country knows that. This pipeline is going to happen. Just check out the movie 'The Obama Deception.' It's very interesting and enlightening.

    Obama is one big lie after another. Obama is a Muslim-loving Marxist. Obama must go.

    IIt isn't like when he screwed his own party at midterms when Pelosi insisted her Congress sheeple "scarifice" for the Health Care Act. He will run over his very own base. Has done it before.
