Yesterday, the Obama administration announced a major delay in its decision on the Keystone XL pipeline. The State Department will take more time to consider the impacts of the as-yet-undecided route through Nebraska, and other concerns raised in the more than 2.5 million public comments submitted earlier this year. This will likely push a final decision until after the 2014 midterm elections or later.
Obama has delayed this once again, so he can milk the green billionaire Steyer for all the money he can in donations. He also has pushed it back till after the election, like many obamacare rules and mandates, because he has no guts. All he knows how to do is whine, complain, and play the race card. He has failed at everything he does. And now with Russia doubling their nat gas prices from Ukraine, and demanding immediate payments, instead of us becoming a competitor to Russia, by delaying this pipeline he is actually helping Putin do everything he wants.
He is also costing thousands of high paying temporary construction jobs, and hundreds of permanent refinery jobs. He also has Canada, one of our best allies, furious. He is also helping fund anti west elements, by forcing us to continue buying oil from the mid-east.
