    Here is the latest from Obama concerning the XL Pipeline.

    The comments reveal an extraordinary ignorance about the subject, but then; Did I really expect anything else?

    Aquifers....effected by a pipeline????

    Of course underground oil spills would never find their way into an aquifer.
    It is just plain silly to think that they could.

    with that said I still support the pipline. I do not get any water from the possibly impacted aquafiers anyway :D

    Obama's position on American Energy is based on ignorance and stupidity. This man is going to be single-handedly responsible for this country being even more dependent on Middle Eastern Oil. Really, if you don't have a CLUE about something, then please, would you just say so!

    November 2012 can't come too soon...

    Yeah, yeah, that's the ticket! Like the pipeline in Alaska and all of those spills? And of course, not to mention the fact that there are about 20,000 miles of pipeline ALREADY underneath our feets right now!

    Jeeze... When you don't understand something, just say so.

    ever hear of permafrost? We do not have that in the lower 50.

    I live in pipeline alley. A 30 inch high pressure gas line blew out about 4 weeks ago just 5 miles by air from my home.
    It is the 5th such incidence with the past 20 years within 30- miles of my home.

    but truely I did not understand that the AF had snipers.

    You're right, especially since pipilines already criss-cross the entire nation, and have been in existance for decades without effecting aquifers.

    But let Obama make a decision: I cannot wait to see how many enemies he'll make.

    I bet airplanes pass overhead too.

    One could fall out of the sky, ya know.

    Guess we better stop building airports.

    There is much concern about dumping oil on the Cushing market, further suppressing prices.
    But XL has stated they plan to build the Cushing to Houston/Port Arthur leg first.
