Obama Donor Will Run Anti-Keystone Ad During SOTU
Breitbart.com ^ | 1/27/2014 | Joel B. Pollak

Billionaire Obama donor Tom Steyer, who is funding and leading the environmentalist campaign against the Keystone XL pipeline, will air an anti-Keystone ad on MSNBC before and after President Barack Obama's State of the Union address on Tuesday evening. The minute-long ad, entitled "Sucker Punch," claims that Canada may not send its tar sand oil through the pipeline to the U.S., and implies it will send the oil to China instead.

WOW! Not only an anti-Keystone ad, but apparently the victim known as gabby giffords who we all know is a "gun safety advocate" will also run a commercial before during or after the FPOS mistake of the union address. See link for gabby's report:

" implies it will send the oil to China instead."

So? A buck is a buck and the US economy could use both the foreign exchange (esp with China) and the extra oil in the world wide market.

This is shaping up to be the most veracity challenged hour in the history of television.

That does it.

We’re going out to the movies tonight. I don’t want to be anywhere near this multi-hour commercial. The Grammys were bad enough.

A veritable cornucopia of blathering inanities. Think I’ll schedule up some “roid” removal without anesthesia for that time frame.

I wish somebody on our side had the money and/or the balls to run an ad showing Soetoro's beloved windmills chopping eagles and hawks to pieces and then informing people of the 30 year exemption from The Endangered Species Act he gave his Big Wind cronies a while back.

Steyer is also investing in a rival pipeline that would carry the oil to the Canadian province of British Columbia.

He is hoping to stop Keystone XL for that reason.

If they really had any, none of them would show up for the “happy hour”. Of course that would just prove the radical left wing extremist demokkkrat scumbags are correct about us being racis’. “That’s retardet sir.”

Was helping someone do their taxes (2009, don’t ask) a few days ago and looking at receipts: Gasoline at the pump was $1.75/gallon! I hadn’t remembered just how low the prices were. (also no raise since then either so my home budget is just getting tighter and tighter)

We, as Americans, are like the frog in the boiling water and are putting up with doubled prices due to this chief of idiots currently in office.

Only the looney left watches MSLSD so running this ad is a waste of money for obvious reasons.

Very true. Some Lib Democrat woman running for Pennsylvania Governor will be running her first ads on there tonight.

I am sure that the population of Coudersport or Waynesburg is larger than the number of MSLSD viewers in this state.

Steyer is Farallon Capital. From their website, among their core investment strategies is

"... non-investment grade debt in leveraged or underperforming companies, as well as companies experiencing a liquidity crisis, defaulting on their debt obligations, filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (or its equivalent), undergoing liquidation or undergoing another corporate event, such as a merger, recapitalization, reorganization or restructuring."


"Vulture capitalists"? Can you say Bain? Will we hear of the evils perpetrated by this nemesis of the proletariat?

That should actually be their response to the SOTU - in its entirety. :)

Shows that these folks are not to bright.
Showing a anti-energy, anti cheap energy ad after the POSSOTU address when most of those who will be viewing it are more concerned how cold it is and how much it's costing them to heat their homes and out gas in their cars.
A good percentage of those people have to sacrifice some money on food or necessities to pay for the huge fuel bills that will be coming in a few weeks.
