Carney: GOP cancelled Keystone, not Obama

Carney: GOP cancelled Keystone, not Obama By Neil Munro - The Daily Caller 1:49 PM 02/21/2012

WASHINGTON – The president didn’t stop the Keystone XL oil pipeline — Republicans did.

That’s the message on Tuesday from White House spokesman Jay Carney as gas prices rise above $4.00 per gallon.

“The president didn’t turn down the Keystone pipeline,” Carney said, because the proposal to construct the pipeline was reviewed by the Department of State.

President Barack Obama’s 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....

Well guess what Carney ol’ boy! The Republicans are going to attach a Keystone drilling provision to the upcoming highway bill, so we will find out again where Obama stands on the issue...

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.

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.

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!

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.

They would think nothing of “eliminating” their opposition if they thought that they could get away with it.

The ends justify the means.
And when they define their “ends” as heaven on earth,
ANY means necessary is justified.

Filled up the tank this morning at a painful sum. Hopey-Changey has done NOTHING to increase supply. They have done NOTHING sensical politically to help ensure stability in price from foreign suppliers as well. I'm in Texas and paying $3.75/gallon for Premium? And, how much was it before Obama??

I'd argue that Carney's comments are a sign that the current regime recognizes gas prices are high and heading higher. That as a result a lot of angry voters will be holding Obama accountable for it.

This reasoning, of a single Governor taking issue with the pipeline was he only thing holding Barry back is BS. It suggests that none of the other Governors and none of the many environmental bureaucracies found anything substantive to suggest stopping the project. It is ridiculous.

The purges will get going when we have the “show trials” put on by “Holder’s people” getting their reparations.

Years ago the left told us what they were going to do and exactly how they were going to do it, and they did. We let them do it to us.

Read “Biedermann und die Branstifter.” It’s the same story.

If the voters are dumb enough to put this evil regime in again I truly think it will be the beginning of the end. They won’t be getting any smarter if four years of 0bummer wasn’t enough to enlighten them. The problem is that most 0bummer supporters don’t care what happens to the country so long as they get theirs. Of course at some point there won’t be anything for them to get.

None of them have an ounce of integrity yet they think we are the problem. Look in the damn mirror Jay Carney, et al. You have never been a journalist and after this little stint you never will be either. You will forever be tied to the worst President in American history for destroying our great country while you LIE ABOUT IT!
