Skip to comments.Obama says he's added pipeline 'to encircle Earth and then some'

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.
