    I love the way you right wingers grab on to some failure and hold on for dear life. The fiasco that was Iraq. The Bush tax cuts that helped move jobs to China and exploded the deficit. Trickle down. Slashing funding for education to ensure your kids are losers. And now this pipeline. You've convinced yourselves it's "magic" and will "do things". You are even convinced that it will lower oil and gas prices.

    Too bad you think this is an attack and not an observation. You might have learned something.

    I don't know why, or even IF gasoline is the number one export, but I do know that anything that the US exports helps lower our balance of payments and raises our GDP. Those are good things to the uneducated.

    PAY ATTENTION.

    By building from OK south, we are drilling and selling our own oil = We make money when we sell it.

    Building from Canada, its Canada's oil that will be sold on the world market = We do not make money on its sale and benefit very little - a few long term jobs and huge risk.

    Additionally, IF we do build from Canada south, half is already finished but the R's are trying to push through unsafe practices.

    Nebraska has very wisely refused to allow their water to be contaminated. Especially since we will not benefit from that pipeline.

    We currently have thousands of miles of pipeline and thousands of leaks. We also have very few inspectors because the R's have filibustered against safety.

    Like it or not, President Obama is right. This way, we profit with a lot less risk. The R way, we don't profit but carry all the risk.

    Not to mention that he has signed more than 400 new permits for drilling while continuing to work for US profit and US safety.

    Unlike the R's who whore for everyone except the United States.

    You aren't building anything.

    Trans Canada is building Phase III of Keystone. They don't need your jack ass President's permission to build from Cushing to the Gulf.

    Only to cross the international border.

    BTW. Canadian oil flows freely on Trans Canada Pipelines I and II to Illinois and Cushing.

    You really should get up to speed.

    We are your #1 suppliers.

    Now don't stroke out here yidnar. And yes it's bullshit politics from Obama.

    But the pipeline is a reality. It's third in the Keystone project. Phase I and Phase II were built from Canada to Illinois and Oklahoma.

    Keystone III is to transport oil, not just from Canada but from all the western oil producers to the Gulf.

    Where Obama really screwed the pooch is when he denied Trans Canada the right to build the northern extension from Alberta.

    That is his only power in this situation. This is because it crosses international boundaries.
    He's now trying to get himself out of the shitter with gas prices going thru the roof, by trying to claim that He, the Lord Obama himself is fast tracking the southern extension.

    It's bullshit from the WH.

    Trans Canada had already made the decision to begin Phase III at Cushing and extending to the Gulf.

    No offense, but your President is a real asshole.:eusa_angel: Pardon my french.
