Skip to comments.Carney: Keystone Pipeline Would 'Sacrifice American Sovereignty'
Posted on 04/23/2012 11:37:13 AM PDT by ColdOne
In a press conference on Friday, White House press secretary Jay Carney responded to the recent new Keystone pipeline bill passed by Congress earlier this week, as theWashington Examiner reports:
"It would be preemptively sacrificing American sovereignty" to approve the pipeline, White Hosue [sic] Press Secretary Jay Carney said, because a route for the northern portion of the pipeline has not been established.
"The United States Congress -- a very important body, takes American security and sovereignty very seriously, or should -- is saying that we will, in advance -- blind -- approve a proposal for a pipeline, a proposal for which does not exist," he also said.
The Keystone XL pipeline has undergone 3 years of review, but the State Department refused to grant a permit after pressure from environmentalists demanding the route through Nebraska be changed.
The bill passed through Congress earlier this week with a veto proof majority that included 69 Democrats voting for the newest measure. The latest route running through Nebraska has already been approved by the state legislature and signed by the governor in that state.
Beyond the fact that President Obama is at odds with many House members in his own party, Carneys charge is ludicrous. The northern portion has not been established because the State Department is requiring a completely new review process for the proposed new route. Additionally, aligning with an ally like Canada would not sacrifice American sovereignty as Carney claims.

Say what? This guy is truly an idiot, or he thinks we are.
Perhaps Congress should pass a resolution pointing out the salient facts in the matter and rebuking Carney for so badly misrepresenting them.
Only for Obama could a man so dishonest be the Press Secretary.
I am expecting any day for this idiot to tell us we will successfully send a man to the sun by going at night.
The scary part is he is a mindless puppet of a mindless puppet.
They are really getting desperate. As if these clowns gave one whit about American sovereignty.
sometimes ya just want to take a two by four and maybe just maybe knock some sense in to this moron.
These are the morons we should be rioting against...
Are we in danger of being taken over by the Canadians?
How can Carney say this with a straight face?
A) He has no conscience.
B) He is really that stupid.
C) He is so committed to Obama, he’ll say anything.
D) All of the above.
What “sovereignty” is that? We “sacrificed” all of our sovereignty to the UN a long time ago.
I have positively no idea what Mr. Carney is talking about in this item.
I swear, this White House is absolutely lumpy with very unusual people.
See my tagline.
They have to pretend to run on our issues because they have to keep all their own actual issues secret.
Note to Carney: Siddown, Skippy, you’ll hurt yourself.
So we can’t let a energy carrying pipeline cross our Northern border with a staunch ally but it’s OK for marauding hordes of drug traffickers to cross our southern border?
He and his bosses are out of their freakin’ minds!
Watching this snotty kid lecture Americans with his lies really makes me angry. Why do RAT presidents always pick such a-hole press secretaries? Don’t they ever realize that such condescending know-it-all leftist wiseass behavior pisses off every American who isn’t a leftie?
No, the truly scary part is that both know very well what they are doing. They are not mindless, they are evil.
