Washington-The Obama administration has delayed a decision on TransCanada Corp´s rerouted Keystone XL oil pipeline until after March, even though Nebraska´s governor on Tuesday approved a plan for part of the line running through his state. "We don´t anticipate being able to conclude our own review before the end of the first quarter of this year," said Victoria Nuland, a spokeswoman at the State Department, which had previously said it would make a decision by that deadline. She said the department would take into consideration approval of the line by Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman.

Recalling Obama's comments concerning his oil policy in the recent debates this is just more proof that he's a lying sleazebag POS.

As if more proof were required.

Why should the State Dept have any say at all?

If he’d just pull his head out, he could hire all those cops he keeps telling us about, put them to work on the pipeline — voila! Keystone Cops!

Which is Swahili (or whatever the hell Obama's native language in Kenya is) for, "We ain't gonna approve this pipeline. Ever."

This is nothing but stalling. Obama wants no sources of energy except wind and solar. Third world, here we come.

Well, take all the time you want, darlin’. We have an awful lot of oil up here that has to go somewhere. The Chinese have expressed a keen interest, and want it now. Wouldn’t it be funny if the Chinese called in some of their loan to you-know-who to help pay for the western pipeline, while the Whitehouse dallies along? Yeah, take all the time you want.

Little cronyism between someone in the State Dept. and a NIMBY in Nebraska, perhaps?

I thought the crossover from Canada to the US was already approved - what exactly does the State Department have to say about the pipeline once it’s into the US and why should we care???.....

"I thought the crossover from Canada to the US was already approved..."

Nope, and that's the rub. I never thought I would see the US refuse 600,000 b/d of friendly oil and 15,000 jobs.

This oil will get to market. The only question is whether the final destination is Texas or China.

The Kenyan (that's by his own admission) does not want Canadian oil. Canada is a very prosperous, very white, democratic country with a relatively conservative government. We have four strikes against us. It's ok, the Chinese aren't so picky.
