Former President Bill Clinton said the federal government should embrace the Keystone XL pipeline that the Obama administration rejected last month. Clinton also said that one of the best things about being out of office is you can say whatever the heck you want.
One of the most amazing things to me about this Keystone pipeline deal is that they ever filed that route in the first place since they couldve gone around the Nebraska Sandhills and avoided most of the danger, no matter how imagined, to the Ogallala with a different route, which I presume well get now, because the extra cost of running it is infinitesimal compared to the revenues that will be generated over a long period of time, he said Wednesday at the Energy Innovation Summit.
So, I think we should embrace it and develop a stakeholder-driven system of high standards for doing the work.
Clintons wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, would have to approve the pipeline since it crosses international borders.
In his remarks, Mr. Clinton mentioned the advantages of not occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
One of the best things about being a former president is you can say whatever the heck you want, he said. One of the saddest things about being a former president is that nobody necessarily cares what you say anymore but you can say what you want.
Toward the end of his speech, Clinton joked, We are left with a time of real excitement here that probably wont make the front page of the Washington Post tomorrow unless I say something outrageous which will embarrass the Secretary of State.
Video is available on that page.
Bill Clinton: “Actually, Mr. Romney has made a number of good points.”
Like him or not—Clinton is a smart man. He could listen to Republicans and act. He wasn’t an ideological driven person like Obama is. He looks a lot better than Obuma.
How bad is it that I’m pining for the Clinton years?
Clinton is full of BS. He fought expanding any oil when he was prez. Now he can say anything he wants, knowing it makes no difference.
What’s interesting about this is Bill Clinton is openly and forcefully breaking ranks with the Democratic President, further weakening Obama!
He obviously knows a trailer trash cutie whose first name is KEYSTONE and last name is PIPELINE, since he wants to EMBRACE it.
Plus, he said "WE", so maybe he's looking for a gang bang thing with her.

He also knows when to leave a sinking ship.
I never thought I would miss Bill Clinton, until Obama took office and began his reign of destruction.
Clinton committed treason (merv and missile tech to communist china) and seriously endangered our country, but unbelievably, he wasn’t nearly as bad as hussein soetora.
