About Us Resources Carney on Keystone: We Havent Rejected Anything By Matt Cover August 24, 2012
(CNSNews.com) White House Spokesman Jay Carney said that the Obama administration had not rejected the Keystone pipeline, despite the fact that the president did, in fact, cancel the project after congressional Republicans forced him to make a decision.
First of all, the Keystone Pipeline is a process. We havent rejected anything, Carney told reporters Thursday.
Carney had been asked by ABC News Jake Tapper why the White House used the term all-of-the-above to describe its energy policy when it had rejected Republican ideas like Keystone.
Its a process that is underway at the State Department that was delayed because for two reasons one because of concern by folks in Nebraska including the Republican governor about the original proposed route and then because of Congress [and] House Republicans insistence on including it as part of the payroll tax cut extension, Carney continued.
However, the White House did reject the Keystone Pipeline in January, formally denying the application of TransCanada the company hoping to build the pipeline to begin work on the project. Federal permission was needed because the pipeline crossed national boundaries running from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico.

We Havent Rejected Anything
I guess that cute girl I met in the summer of 1964 hasn’t rejected me yet, either. She said she would call...
Eight months of unnecessary delay is the same as rejection.
There’s a HUGE gulf between “It’s a process” (D) and welding steel (R).
Carney is a piece of work.
They enjoy lying, just to show they can get away with it. It’s not like the fawning media is going to get up from their kneepads long enough to call them on it.
May as well make stuff up.
The media lets them get away with it.
it depends on what the meaning of rejected is, right jay?
Boy these people really think americans are dumb
Are you still pining over me??
Yeah, they’re relying on the environmental wacko army of lawyers to stall the pipeline in the courts for years.
Carney is a piece of work.
He’s a piece of something, but it ain’t “work”...
I don't believe it! Is that you, Trixie?
The FACT that their MANY LIES are NOT exposed by the media is one of the most shocking developments in the history of this nation. They simply form the *narrative* to fit their agenda.
(And Obama thinks his biggest mistake is that he needed to give us MORE *narrative?*)
The way the majority of the media comports itself is only ONE result of our pop culture...which has arisen from a people who have put God and His Wisdom on the back burner for FAR too long.
Keep praying for our nation.
It's amazing isn't it!......Newspeak is the official language of the white hut!....
A fitting replacement for Baghboy Bob Gibbs...
(..who is still at it via the Dim campaign)
