Apparently, The One couldn't wait until February after he saw his latest polling score. The Greeniacs clearly have him by the shorts. Will be interesting to see union reaction.
Obama should and will be bludgeoned for this - he must be blamed for gas prices being at $3.50/gallon
The One will find other ways to pay off the unions.
Part of me wishes Canadian PM Harper responds by giving the US the middle finger and immediately start the pipeline from Alberta to the Pacific Coast and send the oil to Asia.
Half of our imported oil comes from Canada.
It gives the Repubs GOOD ammunition against Obama who obviously cares about no one....but just likes to show how much power he has. He should be impeached.
I only hope that our candidates have enough nads to use this as a campaign issue.
They've got more than the 'jobs' issue to bludgeon him with. This oil from a friendly neighbor just across the border is a matter of national security, especially with Iran threatening to close the Straits of Hormuz. The Repubs should (politically) put him six feet under on this one.
Only $3.50? I think it will go to $4.00 at a minimum.
“..it means that Obama is so afraid of losing his radical left wing that he can’t move to the center..”
Or... It means he knows he can do this for them and still come out smelling like a rose, so thorough is his mastery of the media.
“I only hope that our candidates have enough nads to use this as a campaign issue.”
You’re an opitmist, aren’t you?
This was a HUGE mistake by the GOP to force this. It forced the veto when it could have talked about Keystone for months. This won’t do squat for anyone’s numbers one way or the other. Oh we will talk about it here, but the electorate won’t care one whit. Not only that ... no pipeline.
This was a massive GOP miscalculation.
Not true. We get more imported oil from OPEC than from Canada.
Gee, wonder what the NASCAR crowd will make of this.....?
Obama has so many screw ups from Keystone, to F&F, to Solyndra, to Chevy Volt fires, etc. that the Republicans will have no shortage of issues to bash the messiah with.
Good Gawd, if this doesn’t run him out on a rail in November all hope is gone.
We are already paying between $3.49 and $3.69 for regular here in Upstate NY.
first a video clip of candidate Obama
"In ten years, we can reduce our dependence so that we no longer have to import oil from the Middle East or Venezuela ..."
Then fast forward to President Obama ... cancelling the Keystone pipeline
“We get more imported oil from OPEC than from Canada.”
OPEC doesn’t sell ANY oil. It is a trade organization. We buy oil from countries. You are comparing apples to oranges.
Expect the Canadians to start building a pipeline to their west coast to export the oil to China now.
Just repeating from a news story from a while back. If you can’t trust the media for accuracy then who can you trust?
The loss of jobs alone from this project should sink Obama, but when gasoline hits $4+ gallon as the Iranian’s close the Straits of Hormuz and Canada sells its oil to China, mobs with pitchforks and torches should be gathering at the White House.
*Americans not included
That toad Trumka will just rinse, spit and go back for more......
Get ready for it, when prices start to spike later in the year, O is going to empty our strategic reserve. Just more destruction upon America by marxists.
“Youre an opitmist, arent you?”
Ha! That’s funny coming from a Pessimist!
If Willard is the nominee, he will not allow any of these Obama failures to be brought up.
Is it the “greeniacs” as you put it, or the Saudis?
That's a pretty tall order, there.
I think he has indicated that he was going to take that route if the U.S. dropped the ball. I wish we had him running our country.
I look for Newt to hit Obama hard on this tmw nite.
Freepers with links!
Couldn't all the states involved just run the pipeline with the shale oil companies putting up the capital to get it to the refineries?
I am so sick of the feds playing Mother Hubbard on everything.
I know, "Interstate Commerce." But this shit is getting old.
High gas prices and high food prices don’t seem to interest the media - as long as obama is running the show.
We get more imported oil from OPEC member nations than from Canada.
Does that sound better to you?
What will happen is a one-year, full court press by the Rancid Media, flooding all news outlets with endless stories of how the brave Obama stared-down the 1% that tried to force this filthy, destructive pipeline through a baby seal nursery. Romney's picture will be superimposed over burning oil wells and dead birds. Local folks (Democrats) will tearfully thank Obama for saving their drinking water and the lives of their children. With one billion dollars Obama will be able to buy all advertising space until after the election. Because conservatives have real jobs they will be unable to even approach the size and frequency Rent-A-Mobs that will be bussed into planned riots, all funded by taxpayers through a thousand "public interest groups."
The only way we will win in November is for rich conservatives to fund a counter effort. They never have, have they?
Because the project crosses an international border, the state deparment has the right to approve or reject the project.
I doubt there will be much complaint from unions. The rank and file really mean little to Obama or to their own leaders who care only about money and power ...nothing new here.
Union Leaders Blast Obama For Keystone XL Pipeline Delay
Unions Furious at Obama for Killing Pipeline Jobs

Quit your whining, union thugs...you’ll vote to re-elect Barry, and you will like it.
I disagree with you entirely... this was exactly the right thing to do at exactly the right time.. fubo had to choose, and he chose the hippies over the working man...the time to hammer home how the wacko dope smoking hippie environmentalists are destroying the chance for the working man to get gainful employment... add to the fact the little sweetener that these would be majority UNION jobs, and you can just about sew this up.... now add in the additional costs to energy, plus adding to our dependency on middle east oil, and you got yourself a nice sledgehammer to pound away at not only fubo, but the entire liberal establishment.....happy new year
