He should wait for a couple of years. Ideally, a couple of decades...

The word is spelled exacerbate. And yes it will. Probably worse than the shipping, piping, etc. of the oil is the actual retrieving it. I heard the TransCanadian gent said if they couldn't ship it, they would not continue. What a blessing that would be!

I feel....like Omamacare.....that He must wait for the Keystone decisions to be made til he's out of office, just like the full implementation of Omamacare will not take effect until He's out of office...

He should wait until we need it bad enough and will not export it. He should wait until the industry stops raising the price of gas (and fixing the price of gas)4 any reason or season. He should wait until satan's crib freezes. He does not owe oil anything. Oil spent big bucks to keep him out of office--and then he won--they lost. He should wait until the landowner contracts say in simple terms--"we will pay for any damage we do".

In a couple of months, Obama will decide to wait a couple of more months.

The Two Month Timetable of the Two Month Timetable is Priority 1.

It's going to take a couple of more months to decide if it is going to be time to decide if it is going to be a couple of more months.

The Two Month Decision will take a couple of months to decide if it's a Two Month Decision.

That's The Two Month Timetable.

Don't worry, be happy.

Well, back to big oil's request, again. Where are the answers? Just asked a simple question. Where are the answers???? Ok, rushslide, chad, mule, loco, anger, animal, etc.-etc. List the reasons for approving the XL- It is easy. 1,2,3,4 Please list the citations for where you got your information. Where are you guys? So far, all you can do is denigrate Obama or the liberal posters who question this Republican give away. Speak up with facts or don't you have any?

Just a few extra items: Nebraska- The Republican legislature gave the right to eminent domain to any foreign country that wants to build a pipeline. They actually violated their constitution??? Republicans: Here are some more items for Nebraskans to look at-- it is a cut and paste-- It discusses some of the problems and a comparison between the pipeline they currently have and the XL "Just proves how gullible the land owners were when the 1st pipeline came through Nebraska. They didn't read the fine print. There are very big differences between the 2 pipelines. The first is 30" pipe not 36" like KXL. The pressure per square inch is ungodly higher in KXL. The majority of the land in eastern Nebraska where the 1st pipeline runs is heavier soil not sand" Not to mention the toxic nature of tar sand and the inferior Chinese steel. Let us not forget the substandard welding of the southern extension just completed...1,2,3, Tell us righties.

"It was $1.87 when Bush left office.. Obama has NEVER been held ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE PRICE OF GAS.."

You keep repeating that price of $1.87 per gallon. What you don't ever mention is the economy was in a free fall due to failed economic policies plus you never mention that gas was close to $5.00 under der Bush.

Never in our history has a President declared war on 2 countries - put the cost of said wars on a credit card - then cut taxes on it's wealthiest citizens. that's sheer madness.

Bush was the worst President to have ever held office hands down!

The Keystone is old news. We don't even need it. Canadians want it sure, it's their oil being shipped to port and off to market. We are beyond the Keystone Pipeline. Look up Harold Hamm and LISTEN WHEN HE TALKS. Also, I get the feeling the editor that wrote this has a little Obama hate doll that they poke with needles and light on fire occasionally. Time for some new material. *Disclaimer---Not an Obummer supporter at all, I agree he's the scum of the earth but an almost daily poorly written bashing article speaks miles about MDN credability.

centerish, I appreciated reading your posts concerning some of the issues in Nebraska. Looks like property rights plus.

Now for your consideration: if the pipeline is so awful and should not be built, then what is the way to transport Bakken crude? Trucks? Trains?

Would you admit it, if your real agenda is not only "down with KXL" but "down with oil, up with alternatives?"

Alternatives are being explored, but not at the rate of successfully replacing or doing away with the petroleum industry anytime soon.

Isn't a pipeline safer than trucks or trains?

On September 30, 1999, The New York Times reported:

"Fannie Mae, the nation's biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits.

"In addition, banks, thrift institutions and mortgage companies have been pressing Fannie Mae to help them make more loans to so-called subprime borrowers... In moving, even tentatively, into this new area of lending, Fannie Mae is taking on significantly more risk, which may not pose any difficulties during flush economic times. But the government-subsidized corporation may run into trouble in an economic downturn, prompting a government rescue similar to that of the savings and loan industry in the 1980s."

9-30-01 Bill Clinton was president in 2000, and the Republicans controlled Congress...$133 billion debt buildup during that fiscal year

9-30-07 George W. Bush was president and Republicans controlled Congress during calendar 2003-2006...Republicans get full credit credit for the $2.24 trillion increase in the national debt

I didn't do further research on the debt (what, when, how) past 2010 because Pres. Bush, being out of office, can't be responsible for it anymore. Or can he?

Gosh, Loco, you have not been reading my post very closely. I am not in favor of eminent domain for a foreign country. But, we need to refine the Bakken crude here instead of shipping it to Canada. we need pipelines to our refineries so that h finished product is used here. The Keystone is for Canada, Shell, and the Koch brother. Your side backs that???? amazing. Money buys it all. Have you ever researched how many big corporations have not paid taxes for years. Your party is shrinking because they have sold the country out. Voter suppression laws, anti-discrimination laws, and selling out the country . You really need to re-evaluate your stance and do more research

Loco, you seem to forget the logistic of the legislature plus the 477 filibusters put forth by the Republican Senate. Now, what policies have changed since Bush left office. Medicare D, wars, tax cuts, What???? Tell us what policies/bills have changed????? Likewise, the Democrats did not have 60 votes to override when they supposedly controlled everything. Check the filibusters.... tons of them...More than the history of the senate. Give me a break... It is called obstructionism.

Just listened to Hannity brag about the great jobs in the ND oil fields. He blames the Gov't. for any delay in oil drilling. He didn't say those $100K jobs come with $36K for housing. He didn't say it is the industry not the Gov't. responsible 4 not capturing the Nat. Gas. He talks as though ND could hire all of the unemployed in the U.S. He is absolutely full of it when it comes to the ND oil Business. Some of the most twisted reporting i have ever heard.

New report with indisputable facts on man-made climate change.

I predict by 2020, half of US states will be like California who will NOT purchase electricity from coal generated plants and Big Oil will finally have to SPEND money on inovative technologies instead of putting the profits offshore in that rainy day everyday account surely to come.

Keystone XL belongs in a series of pictures for the year 2100 where museums preview human change!

LOCO: Our low CD rates can be traced directly back to the crash of 2008. Yes Bush II owns that. They blame Obama while they won't give him what he wants to fix the economy. Any fool can crush an economy and right wing policies did that. Give him a jobs bill. Workers get less from the Gov't. and the taxes they pay are the answer to our debt. Give him the min. wage raise and maybe they can pay for that $3.50 gas to get to work. Don't tie his hands and then whine because he doesn't get enough done.

Why is gas, propane, diesel so high when we have record amounts of oil? The KXL is about exporting the stuff--after it leaks all over our beautiful western plains.

When the oil industry wants something, they manipulate the market to either kick the prices up or lower them, whichever is to their advantage. They want the XL and they will raise the prices of gas to scare the heck out of the public to get what they want. Of course, the right wing will buy into it every time.
