Carney: "Obama Didn't Turn Down The Keystone Pipeline!" (Can you believe.....)
Real Clear Politics ^ | Jay Carey

Posted on 02/21/2012 3:56:01 PM PST by MindBender26

White House press secretary Jay Carney says Republicans "forced" President Obama to deny the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. Later in his press briefing, Carney says Obama didn't turn down the pipeline.

"In terms of Keystone, as you all know, the history here is pretty clear. And the fact is because Republicans decided to play political with Keystone, their action essentially forced the administration to deny the permit process because they insisted on a time frame in which it was impossible to completely approve the pipeline," Carney said when asked about the pipeline by ABC News' Jake Tapper.

Later in the briefing, Carney says it is the Republicans' fault.

Carney: "But the President didn't turn down the Keystone pipeline. There was a process in place, with long precedent, run out of the State Department because of the issue of the pipeline crossing an international boundary, that required an amount of time for proper for review after an alternate route was deemed necessary through Nebraska at the request of the Republican Governor of Nebraska and other stakeholders in Nebraska and the region that needed to play out, to be done appropriately. You can't review and approve a pipeline, the route for which doesn't even exist.

"The Republicans were the ones who unfortunately decided because they were looking for scalps, I guess, or wins in a situation where they somehow found themselves on the wrong side of cutting taxes for 160 million Americans last December. They decided to play politics with this decision and attack the payroll tax cut extension. Even though it was made clear by the State Department that doing so would make it impossible for them to conduct the review responsibly, they did it anyway knowing what the result would be."

What in the hell did the Keystone Pipeline have to do with the Payroll Tax Extension?

Probably next week it will be: “Jay, what are you having for lunch?”

Answer” “Nothing, because I'm in solidarity with all those poor children whose lunches have been stolen by greedy fat-cat Republicans!”

Hey, Jay, I have some northern Wisconsin swampland for sale that would make a good commercial real estate investment for you. Interested?

January 18, 2012 (Lincoln, Neb.) Gov. Dave Heineman today issued the following statement following the announcement by President Obama’s administration to deny the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Gov. Dave Heineman said, “I am very disappointed with the actions of President Obama and his decision to deny a jobs-creating pipeline, leaving thousands of Americans unnecessarily unemployed. President Obama should be focused on putting Americans back to work, and could have done so by issuing conditional approval of the pipeline. Approval of the pipeline would have allowed TransCanada to move forward with the project while Nebraska finished the review process of a new segment of the route around the Sandhills. The President’s decision is disruptive and we are now going to review in detail what this means for Nebraska.”

Couldn’t the POTUS just issue an executive order and open it?
Or -— bring it to a vote and signature again??

Not a good name for a WH press secretary, except in administration such as this one.

Carney is sick. Must put him on the list for further observation and possible arrest and execution at end of the regime.

Or trial.

One of those things.

Constitution is getting so convoluted and complexified with Obama on the job just can't tell anymore.

Is he a Catholic or a Job's Daughter?

He could issue a nationally televised on almost all stations statement like "Send me a bill that [starts the keystone pipeline construction started immediately]; I will sign it tomorrow.”

Excerpted from .... "Send me a bill that bans insider trading by members of Congress; I will sign it tomorrow. Let’s limit any elected official from owning stocks in industries they impact."

What a lying POS! The pipeline idea has been in the works for OVER THREE YEARS and has gone through so many hoops they had already spent hundreds of millions of dollars in “studies” and crap the environmental facist “force” them to do.

LIARS!

If the voters don’t throw out this facist regime in November then to hell with America.

btw, shouldn’t the insider trading bill also apply to the President and the puppet masters who control and contribute to his campaign? (i.e. George Soros and the billions he is bilking Americans out of over the Oil crisis he, Obama, Reid and Pelosi have artificially created)

Well, yes I can believe this BS.
I can also believe that the LSM let him get away with it. No follow up, that I have heard. No rebuttal from the liberal Republicans. No challenging or actually laughing at that statement by any of the Seven Dwarfs minus three, that are “running” for President.
Yes, I believe it. I also believe this administration can get away with saying any thing they want and will not be challenged. And because of that I also believe that next January 21, we will all be saying "Good Morning President Obama."

Can you imagine being Jay Carnie? Spending your life on you knees.

He is the wife of Clair Shipman, and they have a daughter together. I’d be willing to bet that they have a female dog too. There isn’t a whiff of testosterone anywhere near this guy or anywhere else in this guy’s life.

So like the trained seal, he barks and claps for the fish from the trainer.

We can prove it too, because all the unbiased "fact checking" websites owned by The Party of the Single Party State will verify this as the truth, as will the unbiased mass media.

True. Baghdad Bob never lied a lie that was this huge. He probably does take a bum rap from being likened to Jay Carney. If Baghdad Bob is watching US politics he is probably bemused at how huge the Presidential lies are. Almost as huge as Iran’s.
