    We've been through this before. Another poster discussed the Alberta Clipper Pipeline which Obama opposed for just about the same reasons. He finally gave support and permitted it to go through. He didn't "walk the walk" then, he won;t now. Stop depending on the president.

    Past performance is very revealing..

    They give not a shred of evidence or even a rational argument. They just state it as fact. It's a logical fallacy called "begging the question."

    Long term, oil sands development will spur 93,000 jobs per year in the United States, according the Canadian Consulate. Plus, all that economic stimulus comes from private financing, not American taxpayers. If we default on the Keystone XL Pipeline now, we are giving a wide open year for the Chinese to come back to Canada, make those investments, tie down that oil, and encourage that pipeline to go -- not to Houston, Texas or Louisiana-- but to Vancouver, Canada, and then on ships to China.
