    Probably because he sees gas prices sky rocketing and knows that he'll be held accountable for blocking that project. Just for the record..if you deny something, that means you said no.

    He has no authority on the southern section whatsoever. Obama was only able to deny the northern part of the pipeline that would have crossed international boundaries.

    Trans Canada got him by the balls when they announced they were going to proceed from Cushing to the Gulf.

    They didn't need his permission. He got screwed as well he should have gotten screwed,.:eusa_clap: He's trying to save face now.

    He's such a joke.

    This portion of the pipeline is being built in spite of the President, not because of him.

    From the article, just to set the record straight...

    A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner balked at the idea that President Obama could claim credit for speeding up the approval process of the southern segment of the pipeline.

    “This is like a governor personally issuing a fishing license,” Brendan Buck said. “There is only a minor, routine permit needed for this leg of the project.

    Only a desperate administration would inject the President of the United States into this trivial matter.

    The President’s attempt to take credit for a pipeline he blocked and personally lobbied Congress against is staggering in its dis-ingenuousness. This portion of the pipeline is being built in spite of the President, not because of him.”

    It's all about politics, not about principle. Whatever might cost him some support will be changed, this is no different.

    Gee, I don't know...gas just hit $4 a gallon down here in sunny Florida. Now why WOULD Barry suddenly change his mind about the Keystone pipeline? Let me spell it out for you, Syphon...IT'S CALLED DAMAGE CONTROL!!! IF GAS IS $4 A GALLON NOW THEN IT'S PROBABLY GOING TO GO HIGHER GOING INTO SUMMER. Barry just looked at the polls and came to the conclusion that his making the tree huggers happy with blocking Keystone was about to bite him in his skinny butt. He's got a better chance of being the next Queen of England than getting a second term if gas goes well north of $4 a gallon for much of the summer. People are going to be calling for the heads of ANY idiot who hasn't been working hard to keep the price of gasoline down...and there's Barry...the guy who said he thought $6 a gallon was about the right price level for us. How do you think THAT is going to work out?

    Nice try shit for brains, but even you sprinkling perfume on this turd isn't going to change it. Only morons like you trying to lie their little obama ass kissing lips off are buying your fucking garbage.

    You're dismissed, dick head.
