Obama says he's added pipeline 'to encircle Earth and then some'
The Hill ^ | 3/22/12 | Andrew Restuccia and Amie Parnes

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, I’m 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”.

“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.

Barack Rockefeller Obama! According to the news media, he has the best and most audacious energy policy(s) than anyone in the past 500 years.
By election day, gasoline will be ).37.9 a gallon, unemployment will be 4% and housing values will be the highest since 1776. Opinion polls will have him in the high 70s or 80s.
At least according to what we have for a news media in this country.Much like Pravda back in the 30s through the 80s.
I figure after the populace is bombarded by this “news” 24/7 by every news outlet in this country for the next seven months he will be reelected by at least 15 points.

Here's some perspective.

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.

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

If Obama has allowed more drilling/pipeline laying than other presidents, how come the liberal/progressives aren't protesting. Apparently when oil is drilled for under a Republican president it's called “rape” by the liberals. When it's done under a democrat president apparently it's just mother earth liking the rough stuff.

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.

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,... don’t need his approval,.. don’t require his approval,... and that he doesn’t even have jurisdiction over whether they are built, or not? ..Nope, they don’t, 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 media’s 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.
