So Susie Tompkins Buell - the co-founder of the Esprit clothing company who has given more than $25 million to progressive causes does not want this oil going to the USA. Rather she wants it to go to China where she manufactures her line of clothing. I sense a conflict of interest here.
The whiff of hypocrisy is always in the air when the Left is going about its business.

They know they are goin’ under da bus. Obama wants to grow the government, enhance his power and reward his cronies. Doesn’t give a hoot about the planet.
Rich American libs use more oil products than anyone else on the planet, and they have the gall to lecture about the ‘evil’ of oil. Hypocrisy on steroids.

The loony left should have no fear. Dear leader will find a way to block the pipeline.

What are they gonna do? Not vote for him again?

(Sometimes the smartest man in the room is standing in the midst of imbeciles.)
And let’s not forget the blithering ignorant reporter who wrote this story, and described the economic benefits of the pipeline as merely being 6 thousand temporary jobs. Liberals have no concept of cause and effect on oil and the entire damned economy and way of life. Dante is waiting for all of them!!!!
You see, the “problem” with the pipeline is its “upside”.
And they don’t even mention 50 years of oil as one of the upsides. Note this is now not to stop the pipeline but to stop oil itself.

(No Obama, no way!)
The State Department projects that it could deliver 6,000 temporary jobs to the U.S.
I thought those were supposed to be "shovel ready" jobs? What changed?

I fear a double mochatino latte with a soy whip bomb being lobbed at the Capitol Building.
Cut off all “imported” (from outside California) oil, gas, coal & electricity. Water, too, while we are at it. Plus reactor fuel and mined resources.
Let the enviro-whackos subsist on solar, wind and Nature’s Own rainfall.

Here is another bit of hypocrisy when it comes to the left:
Even with an unfriendly Congress, activists say, Obama could do more to protect the environment through executive and administrative actions.
Wow, I guess it's OK if there isn't an (R) after the Presidents name....sheesh.
What's really funny in this whole thing is even though there is a lot of bluster from these lefties, they really have nowhere to go at this point because once their agenda and the ramifications sink in to the average joe, they lose. Why do you think this was all put off until after the election. They know they lose when their agenda is out in the open.
I know I'm beating a dead horse here but I feel we need a revolution of the media in this country. The covering up of these leftists agenda is appalling. The mainstream media will keep this kind of information away from the "low information voter" and trumpet that they are "reporting" this kind of thing but it gets buried on page C15 while the dalliances of a Republican gets headlines. UGH!

(Progressives are Socialists)
Look at China's recent environmental catastrophe where the air in its industrial cities is so polluted residents are buying cans of clean air to breath. Would the environmentalists rather see the Canadian oil go to China where the damage to the environment will be exponentially worse or to the US with strict anti pollution laws?
The environmentalists are part of the communists like empire to destroy America. Our problem is they have not been exposed as such.

("As for God, His way is perfect" - Psalm 18:30)
“Obama’s political dilemma lies in the pipeline’s potential upside: The State Department projects that it could deliver 6,000 temporary jobs to the U.S., where 12.2 million people are unemployed. Bay Area liberals leading the Keystone opposition say Obama has only one choice. “
The hypocrisy of both Parties....they spent 40 years willingly weakening our security and sending our manufacturing jobs to China, and now there aren’t those good jobs for those Americans that don’t have and can’t afford college or a technical skill.
So what’s the new Wall St/D/R solution? Let’s give amnesty to 30 million unskilled illegal Mexican immigrants while we keep paying unemployment and food stamps to Americans. We have had and continue to have a clueless bunch of incompetent corrupt traitors in DC and Congress. We’d do better with a dart and phone books.
