Obama says he's added pipeline 'to encircle Earth and then some'(psychosis)
The Hill ^ | 3/22/12 | Parnes

Posted on 03/22/2012 12:56:51 PM PDT by pabianice

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.

Rush predicted today that Obama would eventually claim, “I’ve laid more pipe than Bill Clinton.” I didn’t have to wait 30 minutes to see this Hill article making a similar claim — only without the sexual innuendo that would come from “lay pipe” and “Clinton.”

I didn’t read the whole article.

The president of the United States is only involved in the 50 feet of pipeline that crosses the US boarder. He has no say and can’t stop (through normal regulatory processes) any single private construction project.

So for him to suggest that “HE” has approved, been involved with or should get credit for anything associated with a construction project that is privately funded and contracted is the most laughable shmagging of frumrickle BS ever spoken (Biden not included).

All I know is that while half listening to a short segment from Fox News, I gather Obama built a pipeline extending up Shep’s leg.

Obama’s mind is twirling fast enough to encircle the earth. And then some.

Peeing down America’s leg and telling us it is raining.

Half the country is standing in the yellow puddle and grinning like Cheshire cats.

When those who suck off the economic teat outnumber those who provide the milk we are doomed and we are damned close.

Last week, during a top of the hour radio news break, some brainiac interview flatly stated that the mild winter weather was a $300 tax break. Not like a tax break. An actual tax break. Apparently, Obama’s government can provide us warm weather during the winter to ease our heating fuel bills, so why shouldn’t he be able to make the sun rise in the morning.

This guy is freaking insane. The only other thing it can be is that the Democrats are completely convinced their constituents have the IQ of a box of rocks.

Their arrogance knows no bounds. They will take credit for reversing global warming and the mild winter and see absolutely no contradiction nor irony in their arrogance.

The administration did not “lay” ONE FREAKIN’ INCH of pipeline. Private industry did, DESPITE the effort to overcome administrative red tape and the EPA. Take credit for the sun coming up tomorrow, Barry.
