Skip to comments.Obama says he's added pipeline 'to encircle Earth and then some'
Posted on 03/22/2012 11:00:08 AM PDT by Nachum
As gasoline prices continue to rise, President Obama on Thursday pushed back on attacks from Republicans that he is blocking the Keystone XL oil pipeline and is against drilling, arguing his administration has added enough new oil-and-gas pipelines to "encircle the Earth and then some."
Obama highlighted his support for the southern leg of the controversial Keystone pipeline, which would carry oil from Cushing, Okla., to refineries on the Gulf Coast.
Appearing before a backdrop of oil pipelines in Cushing, Obama said he was making construction a priority through an executive order issued Thursday that instructs federal agencies to expedite their review of the southern portion of the pipeline.
Today, Im directing my administration to cut through the red tape, break through the bureaucratic hurdles and make the project a priority, said Obama, who earlier this year rejected a GOP bid to force construction on the full pipeline, which would stretch from Alberta to the Gulf Coast.
Republicans quickly dismissed the speech and the executive order as a public relations stunt.

Well...he’s certainly been on vacation around the world more than anyone else. So I am sure he has been “laying pipe”.
Dude! I saw pictures of Obama’s pipeline circling the Earth!
I looked it up on Al Gore’s internet!
Is there anyone left who believes a word this clown says?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Obama’s laying something real thick and it’s not pipe, maybe farmers can use all that manure
And Obama "encircling the earth" with pipeline...
Translation: Workers of the World Unite. Wink wink.
“arguing his administration has added enough new oil-and-gas pipelines to “encircle the Earth and then some.”
Is there any evidence supporting this assertion? I’m being serious, because if there isn’t, its a breathtaking mistake. It borders on something psychologically wrong.
Why would someone as professionally politcal say such a thing when its so easy to check? Either something is off with him, or he’s telling some version of the truth.
I think he meant he did this personally.
Dear God, please hurl a lightning bolt in his direction.
Hey bammy if this is true where are all the environmentalist protesting each site?
Hey bammy who is this “we” bit? You part of the “we” comment? So when did “we” find the time HUH? With all the golf, travailing, basketball/espn, destroying this country. WHEN DID “we” find the time.....?
The more O talks, the more I am reminded of Huey Long, the Kingfish. Wealth redistribution, populist rhetoric including race baiting, “Everyman a king but no one wears a crown.”
The boy king lives in his own delusional, narcissistic universe. He either believes his own lies, or he thinks we’re stupid enough to believe them.
He can say anything he wants because his privately owned press will not question what he says. And his worshippers will believe anything he says. Neither will check it for fact.
Read Romans 1:18-32...
The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven...
It is my opinion there aren’t any of them in this so-called Administration with all of their nuts and bolts in place, and torqued to recommended specifications.
I was sure this was a John Semmens post.
“Is there anyone left who believes a word this clown says?”
Apparently around 40 some odd percentage according to some polls I’ve seen.
But Clinton and Obama lay their pipes in different places.
‘But Clinton and Obama lay their pipes in different places.’
I WAS NOT going to go there... but heck, since you brought it up :)

Too ignorant to know they are being lied to, or they know they are being lied to and are just too stupid to care.
Exactly where has he authorized the laying of more pipeline?
Some idiot in the WH staff looked up a statistic about pipe length and thought “kewl!” This whole administration is a bunch of emotional teenagers who never made it out of HS.
Planned pipeline construction to be completed in 2011 fell by more than 28% from the previous year, with sharp drops in planned crude and products pipelines more than countering expanded natural gas construction plans.Pipeline construction plans continue slide despite growth in natural gas - Oil and Gas Journal - February 7, 2011
Operators plan to complete installation of 8,327 miles in 2011 alone (Table 1), with natural gas construction's share of the plans (more than 6,600 miles) making up nearly 80% of the total, based on reports from the world's pipeline operating companies and data collected by Oil & Gas Journal.
Looking forward, to 2011 and beyond, reveals that for the third consecutive year less mileage is planned than had been the case the previous year
LOL, and Stalin single handedly defeated Germany..
Propaganda is propaganda Mister Obama.
He’s an insane liar and the media doesn’t even call him out. They are all looking more and more stupid as they continue to defend this guy.
Obama does tell the biggest bull crap stories.
Anyone dumb enough to think that approving 1/2 a pipeline to Canada that doesn’t actually reach any canadian oil is a good thing, is OBVIOUSLY going to be voting for Obama.
Perhaps, there are major gas pipline maintenance works going on all over the country and have been since before he took office, but his administration has nothing to do with it and it isn’t new pipeline its just repairing old lines.
I am sure with shale natural gas a good bit of pipe has been laid in the past few years, but again that has nothing to do with Gasoline.
The fact the guy who stalled and refused the XL pipeline can now claim he’s pro drilling and pro pipline is rediculous, but that won’t stop the press for regurgitating his lies without challenge.
“Hes an insane liar and the media doesnt even call him out”
No one in the Mainstream media wants to be unemployed and black-listed for speaking the truth about Obama.
Isn’t Fascism Wunnerful?
Only the loon’s lies “encircle the earth”.
Crack Pipe -
- Hash Pipe
Oil Pipe -
Dictator Baby-Doc Barack is proving himself to be a blithering idiot.
Obama says what he thinks his audience wants to be true, and then expects us to believe his lie.
I am so sick of this lying SOS.
It’s 50 feet. So he’s more than blowing this all out of perportion.
“Oil pipelines are built all over the nation every day without his approval,... dont need his approval,.. dont require his approval,... and that he doesnt even have jurisdiction over whether they are built, or not? ..Nope, they dont, do they?
The two key words are support and approval, and Enemy of Oil #1 and the mainstream media have cleverly substituted the word approval for the word support.
He is traveling to Cushing, Oklahoma to give his so called support, but with the mainstream medias help, he is giving the impression that he is giving the Southern portion of the pipeline his approval, when he has no authority over it whatsoever.
The only approval he has the authority to give is the approval he refuses to give, and that is for the 50 feet that extends to the Canadian border.....(which he has now given...50 feet!)
So when you hear stories about his approving some portion or another of the pipeline, it is nothing more than a publicity stunt to fool people into thinking he is approving the pipeline, bit by bit.
When one possesses no moral compass, like Obama, then anything they say is not a lie, by their line of reasoning as evidenced by Obama saying this, just like Gore said about inventing the internet, just like Piglosi who said that more unemployment funding was needed in order to create more jobs, and just like Slick Willie himself, who said he did not have sex with that woman, Ms Lewinsky.
What I said was a joke: That Obama has "laid more pipe" than Clinton, but that in hOmObama's case...
it's dirty-plumbing pipes...
which in plumber's terms means the pooh pooh pipes. The dirty water pipes--the outflow toilet pipes.
hOmObama lays pooh pipes. Fudge packer? Butt pirate? Poop Chute Loot? Shall I stop? ;-)
The Lyin’ King....
It should be easy to prove or disprove these claims, one would think.
Obama denies any blame for the SOLYNDRA debacle which used government funds but takes credit for laying pipelines for which used no tax dollars....
And the obedient lapdog media remains silent.....
In the interest of fairness, I feel compelled to point out that Gore did not claim to have “invented” the internet per se. He took credit for pushing legislation through that enabled the internet to be developed.....or something like that.
