President Obama plans to announce in Cushing, Oklahoma Thursday that his administration will expedite the permit for the southern half of the Keystone XL pipeline, a source familiar with the president's announcement tells CNN.
In January, the Obama administration denied a permit for the 1,700 mile long Keystone XL oil pipeline, which would stretch from Canada's tar sands development to the U.S. Gulf Coast. That decision was met by persistent Republican criticism that the president has not been doing everything possible to create jobs and combat high gas prices.

So do they carry the oil in buckets to where the pipeline starts?
So this is a “Pipeline To Nowhere”?
Isn’t that already permitted? Didn’t Keystone announce a couple weeks ago they were building that leg. So is Barry swooping in to try to take credit? Typical.
That should help gas prices! /s
What’s so sad is that most of his stupid voters will think this is great.
I know there is a huge railroad yard being planned near Williston to fill oil tankcars.
He thinks we're all stupid.
He needs a major announcement because of a pre-planned campaign stop near the Pipeline project. I guess their internal polling about gas prices affecting the election has not been encouraging...
It has but his smoke and mirror tactics will fail as it will have no effect on gas prices. You need to be complete in your strategies and ways of thinking.
It’s to the refineries, it’s just that it doesn’t start where the oil is so I guess it would the “Pipeline From Nowhere”?
obama doesn’t even pretend to make sense.
Won’t help him at this point. America knows his true colors. Red, red, and red.
70 million people, many of them actually alive, voted for him in 2008. We don't all have to be stupid. He just needs enough morons to carry the electoral college.
Is this Buffett’s railroad and isn’t he and his railroad one of the major reasons why the northern half isn’t being built?
Election year politics, at its best.
Obama must be feeling some heat from his closest supporters/financial backers.
OK Newt.......here is your chance to REALLY score!
This section doesn’t need a permit. It’s done. They are building it. This lying sack is trying to take credit AGAIN where none is due.
He already has videos on the net taking credit for increased oil production. I have yet to see any media outlet call him out on it.
That is high plains ranch country. Water rights have been a killing thing decades. I have friends who ranch out in western Nebraska, and they were not very happy about the pipeline. Many have had “promises” made regarding similar things (oil/gas exploration, other pipelines) not be worth the paper they are written on. They are looking for some more guarantees before they sign on.
has anyone ever even HEARD ABOUT a land-based pipeline leak???
what’s the problem- the oid spills on the floor, you wipe it up
I cannot remember one singleland-based “disaster” from a pipleine leak
