Obama's "Reservations" are one of the reasons he was voted into office in the first place, and I along w/many expected actions against the XL in return...
instead we're being held hostage, as it's dangling it in front of us like a carrot on a stick, hoping he can hang on w/o having to make the final decision - and pass it on to the next President.
Add this to my "why obama's really pissing me off" list.

he has to weight in national and environmental concerns. let him do his job people. if you have voted out lobbyists who are making big bucks from America's backyard, then his job would be a little easier. he's a lone ranger over a vast land that some like to see his fail.

This is encouraging, but--at the risk of sounding like a broken record--I will not be celebrating until he finally kills that threat to all life on Earth.

We don't need signs or signals -just get off your travelling butt Mr. President and do it!

ellen m- Be patient! He is NOT going to approve the Keystone XL. The president after him will. We will be stuck with T-publicans again, no doubt.

Actions speak louder than signals. I will believe it when he signs on the dotted line. Thanks Cal.

I hope he resists the pressure from Harper and Trans Canada. Then of course there's the Nebraska lobby who thinks the Keystone through their state is a wonderful idea. You're right Tamara. In Missouri they say show me and that's what Barky needs to do is show us through his actions. Of course 70% of the pipeline has already been built. It's just not connected yet.

I think he's just lulls them to sleep, then wham.

The man is under enormous pressure to approve it - not just from companies but from citizens who mistakenly think this means jobs and lower gas prices. We, the people, need to make ourselves heard - loud and clear and often!

A pessmist by nature, didn't this man close the deal with Canada nearly 2 years ago? Was there a retraction clause?

Reservations don't mean action. Won't hold my breath. Why can't Obama do something about Utah, Alabama and Mississippi and their fracking and pipelines, preferably before they start??
Noted and thank you.

The latest I've read is that Obama admits this is not going to produce jobs. So, it seems every time he speaks about the KXL, it's with more reasons NOT to approve it. But, Michael Kirkby (above) is also right in that this is being built in dribs-and-drabs. There have also been many awful "spills & leaks" in the past several months that have totally destroyed large areas of land, including areas populated by homes. The protests are increasing, and have even grown in the U.K. & Canada regarding dirty oil. Although I want to remain hopeful, I will also continue to sign petitions & send letters, and await the decision.
