this is my line in the sand with obama. sounds like even the tea party is agaisnt it in texas or did i mis-read that?
this is what i was referring to..
"If he approves the pipeline, Obama “can be assured we will continue to pursue a variety of strategies, from work in the courts, to lobbying and organizing within state governments, particularly in Nebraska and down in Texas where we are working with the Tea Party,” Brune said. “There will be an organized strategy to keep this pipeline from being built.”"
i agree though, it doesnt seem like something they would be against...
ahh kk i got ya.
Carney distances Obama from looming Keystone pipeline decision
"The White House, however, appears to be trying to keep some political space between Obama and the looming decision on TransCanada Corp.’s proposed Alberta-to-Texas pipeline."

Things that make you go
Speaking only for myself, come on over and lets talk about why you are wasting the taxpayers money watching us. I'm usually home from work by 5:30.
I hope you don't mind answering as well as asking questions, I have "a few" myself.
Hey! It's me Jan .... er, I mean Horsehockey! I ain't watch'n nobody!
I think I have signed them all and will keep doing so.
The Obama administration announced Thursday it would delay a politically explosive decision on the proposed Keystone XL oil sands pipeline until after the 2012 elections.
The pipeline is especially treacherous waters for President Obama because it splits key elements of his base. While green groups oppose it, several major unions are pushing for approval.
Keystone had become a serious thorn in Obama’a side, with environmental groups warning they’d feel betrayed if the pipeline moved forward.
im not so sure i love this. it opens up the possiblity for a republican president to make that decision. he will also lose some of his environmental base...this was kind of my line in the sand with obama. i think it was a candy ass decision.
well what happens if a republican gets the potus in 2012. since obama has set it up so the decision comes after the elections an anti environmental republican pres would approve that pipeline. i think it was a poor decision for obama and i really think it was a political move.
he shouldve just said no.
..keep fighting it.
keystone shut down due to mech failure
tell obama to deny pipeline BEFORE THE ELECTION...
holy crap pres find your damn spine
and stop the suck ass to environmental parasites. .rant
tar sands action
oppose any pipeline
what part of this can destroy our climate do they not understand?
Glad that it has at least been delayed, and glad that they are looking to find a route that does not risk contaminating to Ogallala Aquifer.
Nevertheless, it ain't over yet, and the administration is just delaying this unpopular project until after the elections. Better keep pushing against it.
I agree that it is necessary to keep up the pressure against this project. A delay though is a victory that motivated people can make a difference even if is people in the 99.
Although I've been signing petitions and protesting the pipeline as well as calling the WH - this to my mind is only a prelude to the problem that has the potential of jeopardizing the health, lives, environment and wildlife of upstate NY and Penn, and the massive urban areas that are dependent on the Delaware Water Basin for bathing, cooking and consumption - the NYC water reservoirs are located directly on sites planned for immediate drilling with leases signed and our parks are even about to be violated as well - all this because we are sitting on the Marcellus Shale (the "Saudi Arabia" of natural gas) - extending from W Va to NY - if you're familiar with "Gasland" you'll understand just how frightening this intended means of energy is - we are on weeks away from a vote that may license this destruction of our water and the building of a pipeline from the Catskill Mtns. through NJ and into Manhattan at 14th St crossing the Hudson River - the utter madness of this puts 15.6 million people in jeopardy - the drilling has started with 135 incidents of explosions and the poisoning of water wells as well as leaks into the Susqehanna River - this is alarming as a NYC native, and so many are ignorant of the term "hydraulic fracturing" "fracking" here and are totally unaware of the danger that this tsunami represents - perhaps it's because this affects my neighborhood more than the "sands pipe" does, but I consider them both to be worthy of concern and protests - including the sit down blocking of drilling and bulldozing! We have to spend the millions on clean energy ( something they claim "natural gas" is) well it is, once the most foul and dirty, and destructive means of exhuming the gas invented by man is completed - this is worse than the shearing of the Appalachians for coal - all for a limited amount of energy, and a precious few jobs - and those jobs are lethal - so much so that the Texans running these operations don't go there, but conduct their drilling in the safety of their buildings in Texas - how modern tech protects the 1% - this is truly a fight for our lives!
Fracking can shatter the earths crust and form more earthquake flaws. We don't need fracking to cause something we can't handle due to Big Oil Fracking things up. Are we ready for the next big blow out?
some of these are pipeline related
