    Could it have anything to do with Warren Buffett?


    Buffett’s Railroad Among Winners From Keystone Denial


    Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that stand to benefit from the Obama administration’s decision to reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit.
    With modest expansion, railroads can handle all new oil produced in western Canada through 2030, according to an analysis of the Keystone proposal by the U.S. State Department.
    “Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A), said in an interview. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul.”

    Don't need a conspiracy theory to make Obama look like an ass for this move. The Truth does just fine.

    He is Selling a line of BS that it has not been studied enough because he does not want to piss his base off before the Election by Approving it. He is putting off US Jobs, and risking losing the deal all together, and denying the US a step toward better energy security all for Political Reasons.

    Pretty Pathetic. Don't think you need to try and Tie Buffet profiting off it to make it look worse than it already is.

    Why did P-BO block Keystone? Kickbacks to the ecofascists and supporting special interests.

    Bloomberg makes a good argument wouldn't you agree? It does warrant a discussion.
