One of the big reasons that Obama turned down the Keystone pipeline was that the Republicans gave him, in the Defense Appropriation that he needed, this unrelated rider that INSISTED that the President decide on Keystone within something like 20 days - just to rush him into it, despite some serious questions about its effect on the ecosystem, its safety, and its necessity. It was a continuous pipeline that would require, at some point, building or digging every inch of the way from the Canadian border down to around Oklahoma; very expensive and the Repubs were already lined up to see that much of that money went into their pockets.

Since they tried to rush the President, and at the same time giving him all sorts of sh!t about his recess appointments and the like, his rushed decision was No.

There are already hundreds of pipelines flowing through Nebraska.

This is nothing but politics. Obama should have approved it.

So he kills jobs, for the the countrys future, but he wants re-election, lets send him home to enjoy a retirement most Americans won't have, supports jobs are what make any large scale project work, coffee shops, diners, lodgings, and the sales of fuel. this along a 1700 mile work route. remember cars need repairs, tires, you know the deal. everyone has a chance of getting work on this project.
VOTE for jobs, not for someone who says, when i back we talk, 2 trillion dollars spend on what, and still no JOBS, because of the failed policys it would take 1 million jobs every year for 10 yrs. europe was a part time welfare state because congress was sending blank checks now we have problems, so they get no US monies, ????? and they hurt in the pocket book. Oh i forgot it only UNION jobs he wants, THINK !!!!!!

Obama is pandering to his hollywood buddies.

His union buddies have nowhere else to go.

Obama is the Keystone Pipeline Job Destroyer & The Food Stamp President.

Its about JOBS, TEN offshore permits on hold or pending to the tune of 30 billion dollars, wages per worker are if employed, 12 to 18 an hour to start, so if you are working thats fine but if you need work what ,then the gulf states are big employers in the area, like i wrote above, its the support jobs, pipes, and equipment have to be delievered, people need to eat, sleep, and they like to buy.
