Earlier this month, President Barack Obama delayed until after the 2012 election the decision on whether to proceed with construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, designed to transport crude oil extracted from oil sands formations in Alberta to refineries in Oklahoma and the Gulf Coast. Environmental activists have long criticized the project, but National Review columnist Mark Steyn argued that by putting off the decision, the White House is demonstrating poor judgment and twisted priorities.
During an appearance last week on The Source with Ezra Levant on the Sun News Network in Canada, Steyn criticized the Obama administration for putting energy from Third World nations ahead of First World states.
Its the act, I think, of an advanced society that is developed to the point where poses and posturing are more important to it, more vital to it, than actual reality, Steyn said.

Does anybody really know what time it is.............
Does anybody really care
good one, hadn’t thought about it, but that makes the song more perfect in application to the situation the US is in
Does anybody really care
That's what these guys were asking a long time ago.
The dems have nothing else but to blame republicans, so that is their only hope.
Continued lack of growth, and blame the republicans.
25 or 6 to 4?
Depends on whether you are right handed or left. I think it is 25 to 4 if you are right and 6 to 4 if you are left but I could be wrong and it could be somewhere in the middle or it could be 4 to 6... I’m really not sure I guess. Never mind.
This project gets us closer to attaining energy independence from Middle Eastern terrorist states, it gives us jobs, tax receipts, economic security. So what does this idiot in the White House do? He cancels it, making sure more of our dollars go to terrorist nations who are trying to kill us, (and a few nations he likes to bow to), and prevents 20,000 households from earning a very legitimate income. What is wrong with him, in this time of need he spits in the face of real opportunity, because some rich environmentalists will give him campaign checks? He is selling this county out.
For this decision alone he should not be president.
