Yeah, I just don't see the benefit of the pipeline.

He might ask for the forced retirement of TWO Chief Justices of the Supreme Court...

He knows full well that the Keystone pipeline will be a long, 10 year project (at the earliest)...
because investors & capital movers-&-shakers will go forward In a slow-motion, 'creeper gear'
because the price of oil/energy is going to continue to deflate to possibly under $50 bbl over time
so the completed pipeline will probably be a dry tube at the onset---at least until oil/energy is back in the $80-100 range once again
Republicans are delirious right now over their recent grab for power, and they plan to be the bully on the block. They have no interest in finding compromise on anything.
