Democrats Backpedal as China Readies $15.1 Billion Canadian Oil Deal
Breitbart TV ^ | 07/28/12 | Wynton Hall

Posted on 07/29/2012 6:11:44 AM PDT by hfartalot

When President Barack Obama blocked the Keystone Pipeline, Republicans said the move would encourage Canada to pursue oil deals with China instead of the United States and cede a massive chunk of North American oil assets to the communist nation.

Now, with China's state-run oil company CNOOC poised to cut a $15.1 billion deal--the largest ever foreign acquisition for a Chinese company--with Canadian oil company Nexen, Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) are in full backpedal mode.

These dumbasses need to held accountable for this. Treason almost in my opinion.

But I also want to be fair to them; hence my tagline.

Elevation to high political office and enhanced social status.

I think it’s hanging for traitors, and saboteurs.

Coup de grace for spies after getting as much info as possible.

Hanging is too good ... I say several years at hard labor in a good, old-fashioned chain gang. (followed by a the aforementioned hanging!)

In the aftermath of 2010....a fair number of Democratic Representatives didn’t come back to Washington....and there were fair losses in states across the union. Every single one of the survivors of 2010....should have come back and asked stupid questions of the national leadership from the Democratic Party. The party should have been yanking on the chain of the President and making 2012 a big-win period. Jobs and business growth should have been topic number one in 2011, and nothing much happened.

At this point in the game...it’s almost too late to make anything happen with the Chinese oil deal. My guess is that the Democratic Party members down at the state level are furious and demanding a massive flip after the November elections. The TV media guys are going to have trouble explaining why such a changeover had to occur.

China might even buy the Canadian oil and the turn around and sell some of it and directly ship it from Vancouver to Western US ports. That way, China would make a profit and the US would pay more that if there were a direct pipeline from CA to US. I’ll bet the Dems have their eye on this and are asking the Chinese companies (acting through Dem operative subsidiaries) for donations for these deals to go through smoothly.

No. Increased benefits. Awards from liberals on high. Extra $$$ increases. Dates with young babes. Star status. Pats on the back from Obama. Cheers at the wine toasting events. A lifetime government job at six figured salary.

Neither. It's a pat on the back and more illegal campaign contributions.

The USA may not recover from Obama’s incompetence.

Canada was a willing supplier of crude oil via an expanded Keystone Pipeline. Now China is making moves to buy the company producing the oil.

The Middle East countries are in shambles as the militant Muslim Brotherhood takes control. The Muslims have not stopped the flow of oil to Europe and USA yet, but given the friendly overtures by China towards them, we should expect it to happen any day.

Obama is doing nothing to stem the flow of Hezbollah into Venezuela. Another oil spigot that is in danger of being shut off.

Chucky Schmucky knows his dim hopes for maintaining Senate majority status or his potential promotion to become Senate Leader would be dashed even further if this debacle occurs. Romney would have such a huge hammer to strike blows against the Bam every which way to Tuesday——election day that is.

Canada was very open about this. I suppose Chuck the Schmuck, and Nancy D’alesandro thought they were bluffing.

There is no excuse for this , but not in my wildest dreams do I expect the citizens who voted for these two ignorant POS to not vote for them at their next opportunity.

As long as those earmarks keep buying their votes they are happy.

The idiocy of the left is on display once again.

Because Democrats are beholden to the Radical Environmentalists, they have blocked Canadian oil from being imported into the US via the Keystone Pipeline.

Now the oil will presumably be exported to China in tankers across the world’s oceans.

And in the end, the oil will be burned, with all of the resulting environmental impacts. Do the environmentalists really believe the Chinese will be more sensitive to these impacts than the US?

As for the economic benefits of this oil, they will accrue to the Chinese economy, rather than that of the US.

Will the Democrats pay for their subscription to this idiocy? Only time, and the election results, will tell.

Of course! No one believed Canada except the Republicans.

It pains me to say so but I hope Canada cuts a deal with China and Obama and his party are tarred-and-feathered over this fiasco.

I say look for the bribes from OPEC, and probably now from China as well.

You don’t really think they deprive this country of energy just on “principle”.

I am pretty sure half of your hope will come true. Canada will make a deal with China.

As for the other half, as long as those entitlements come rolling in there will be no tar and feathers for Obama and his party.

The thing keeping the Dems alive is Unemployment insurance, welfare, affirmative action jobs, Homosexuals, abortion, and the promise of free health care paid for by stealing the wealth of those few still working.

The Dems and the rest of the left will work furiously to defeat Harper in the next Canadian election. They can't afford to have Canada be more conservative than the formerly free USA.

You’re correct.
The Dems are just like a family in 2007 riding a wave of false prosperity provided by credit cards and helocs.

They’re spending $1.40 for every $1 in income, and doling it out for votes.

We should all e mail text and twitter the word “TREASON”? to all our so called reps. The crickets are deafening and they will all pay a price at the poles guarenteed! We may have to settle with plastic hair hat man to get the ball rolling and oust these commies but when it rolls we MUST stay focused and under pressure for many years to come to beat these cretans back

This....What you said.
Either he and the Democrats are destructively stupid or they really want us diminished...
Regardless, these people must be stopped in spite of themselves in the next election. If not, there will be no country left for conservatives and liberals to bicker over and no rich or middle class people to redistribute wealth from.

Was this a metaphor about getting rid of the Democrats? Not sure what this would have to do with a chain gang. Also does salting areas keep weeds from growing? Is this feasable to do on residential property?

“Environmentalists” don't care about the “environment.” This is all about “fundamentally transforming America.”

Well here it comes. The bammer is going to change his mind in the nick of time. He will EVOLVE on this after careful and nuanced consideration of his poll numbers. It will happen shortly, and pelosi and dingy harry will find a way to support it too. it’s coming.

Heavy crude refineries, primarily in Louisiana, are ready to add Canadian “bitumen derived” crude to supplement oil imported from Mexico and Venezuela. Additional refineries in Illinois, Michigan and other states had upgraded in anticipation of receiving Canadian crude, which would have supported continued operation at pipeline delivery pricing.
