Carney: GOP cancelled Keystone, not Obama By Neil Munro - The Daily Caller 1:49 PM 02/21/2012
WASHINGTON The president didnt stop the Keystone XL oil pipeline Republicans did.
Thats the message on Tuesday from White House spokesman Jay Carney as gas prices rise above $4.00 per gallon.
The president didnt turn down the Keystone pipeline, Carney said, because the proposal to construct the pipeline was reviewed by the Department of State.
President Barack Obamas decisions to nix construction of the pipeline has been repeatedly attacked by the GOP, and by some Democratic-allied unions representing construction workers. They say Obama cancelled the pipeline, and up to 20,000 well-paying jobs, to please his environmentalist supporters as the November election draws closer.
The November decision to reject the construction plan was the result of a decision make, to honor, the concerns of those in Nebraska, including the Republican governor [that the pipeline] would threaten the water supply in Nebraska, Carney said.
Obama again nixed the pipeline in January after Republican leaders had attached a pipeline mandate to the year-end spending plans.

So last year, we were in the “back pocket” of big oil.
This year it looks like we’re not.
I’m losing track of the lies here....
How many more lies?
The only pocket that jack off has been in is the taxpayers...both present and future.
Hey Carney......It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

Seriously, how can you lose when you can say anything and the media will dutifully report it to a misinformed and unthinking public?!
Carney could have said the Tea Party cancelled the pipeline, and it would have been reported as fact, with no checking.
I have no words to express how much I despise the media.
And we can thank the lickspittle leftwing state-loving news media for this.
Hey Carney, you anti-truth and spin machines aren’t swaying the legal voters.
I missed it. Which republican vetoed the deal?
A governor said, “I don’t want all this revenue and jobs in my state.”?
This reminds me of when my son denied painting our office desk with white out. “Sissy did it. I saw here.” Sissy was not home, is older and did not have white out all over her hands and face. Did I mention he was caught in the act?
My son was 4 when this happened. How old is Carney?
When Obama told Carney this is what he wanted him to report, did Carney at least look puzzled? “Mr. President, should I smile when I say it or just look stupid with a straight face?”
It’s perfectly clear to the regime that in this round of mock elections, the state-run media is clearly ready to toe the party line 100%. Now there is no limit to the lies we will hear because there is no real check on them.
The left’s “long march through the institutions” has been completed.
We have ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia.
Can you imagine if Clinton had used this “blame the republicans” strategy with Hillary?
I’m sorry, Hill ... it wasn’t my fault. Those darn republicans sent that intern into the oval office. I don’t even like cigars, but the GOP tobacco lobbyists left a box on my desk.
I did not have sexual relations with that woman ... it was George Bush!
No matter how much you hate them, they loathe you even more. The “tea-baggers” in “flyover country” are their mortal enemies.
Czechoslovakia caused Germany to invade the Sudetenland, and Poland caused Germany to lauch the blitzkreig against it. In both cases, Hitler laid out his demands, and then stated publicly that — if they weren’t met — he “would not be responsible for the consequences.”
It’s called the “big lie theory.” Guess who articulated it first.
