President Barack Obama is intervening in a Senate fight over the Keystone XL oil pipeline and personally lobbying Democrats to reject an amendment calling for its construction, according to several sources familiar with the talks.
The White House lobbying effort, including phone calls from the president to Democrats, signals that the vote could be close when it heads to the floor Thursday. ..

I doubt if he’s begging: more like threatening.

Just when you thought he reached an all time low...

Did you mean BRIBING?????????
Why not? The kenyan kommie certainly doesn't have to worry about the MSM revealing his lies & duplicity.
Tomorrow he'll be out in front of his teleprompter claiming theres nothing he can do to lower future gas prices.

Didn’t he just state in a speech this week, that he was removing obstacles to the construction of the pipeline?

Apparently Mr. Obama is confident he will win reelection on social issues and dirty tricks..

I agree. In fact I just ditched my FUMR x 1000 tagline and replaced it.

I believe so. He also said we needed an “all of the above energy policy”. One thing that needs to be hammered home in the 2012 election is that he’s a “bait and switch” President where he promises one thing and does another. (i.e. transparency, bringing people together, seeking the best ideas from both parties, etc.) Commercials should be made contrasting his speeches with his actions.
Is this the same Obama who told them he would not share his election “stash” with them and that they where on their own raising funds?

(Good thing I am a conservative. Otherwise I would have to support Mittens like Republicans do.)
Didnt he just state in a speech this week, that he was removing obstacles to the construction of the pipeline?
He meant removing testicles not obstacles.

I had that same thought. I could swear he gave a speach earlier this week claiming CREDIT for the portion that is going to be built here in the U.S.
Thanks, I mentioned to a family member the price of gas was under $2.00, when Obama took office.
They didn't believe me..this administration is a daily assault on our quality of life. The worst is yet to come, Inflation will accelerate after the election.

We must stop these dogs in their tracks next November!
All Obama has to do is veto it. Oh, wait, Mr. 'Votes Present' doesn't want his fingerprints on this in an election year, so he is throwing the Senate Dems to the wolves. Either way, it's all good.
Popcorn is needed.

The whining, little creep begs his fellow Democraps to vote against America, but he won’t lift a finger to help their campaigns.

He is a major malfunction.
I wonder what the unions think of this. It is my understanding that the unions want this pipeline as much as we do.
