‘Seriously?’ Sarah Palin shreds Bob Beckel’s ridiculous claim about Alaska pipeline jobs
http://twitchy.com ^ | July 31, 2013

Sarah Palin @SarahPalinUSA

Did Bob Beckel just defend Obama's anti-Keystone stance by claiming the Alaska pipeline employs "about 100 people"? Seriously?!

-snip

Beckel: “Do you know how many permanent jobs there are on the Alaska pipeline? About a hundred.”

And with that, school was in session:

This will be the juvenile Democrats' new tactic. They know the country is hungry for new jobs, but they also know their Luddite base will scream if they support projects like the pipeline. So they'll just stamp their feet and whine, "There are no jobs! Because we say so!"

I loathe Bob Beckel, and I refuse to watch any program that he is on. When he comes on as a guest, I switch off that program. I have NEVER watched The Five because I would have to watch and listen to this idiot. He always wears that same condescending look that Alan Colmes always has; and, his attitude toward any conservative is sneering.

So, if you don't watch him, and don't listen to him, you will lead a more peaceful and happier life.

Oops.

Looks like someone forgot who he was debating with.

Never argue with someone who has ALL of the facts, AND is a better debater than you are.

Beckel: Do you know how many permanent jobs there are on the Alaska pipeline? About a hundred.

So this genius says that 100 jobs don't matter. To translate, every small business unless you can hire 101 people at a time, don't, it doesn't matter.

Beckel’s lie went all the way around the world before Palin’s truth got mentioned. The Marxists thrive on that sort of thing.

Actually Obama said “50 people”.

Beckel makes the Five too hard to watch. He just deflects every question off to a new subject. He just disrupts the flow of the discussion and makes it all irritating. I actually don’t mind him as much one on one where he has to answer a question.

Bob Beckel DEFINES "Pompous Ass"....clueless about the REAL world, living in his mind in a Socialist Utopia.

He has the same mentality as all the Socialist Elitists, who pontificate about what's "best" for everyone....using other people's income to fund it......

I STILL REMEMBER.

After the discovery of oil in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, it didn’t take long for environmentalists to cry gloom and doom and for the media to hype those claims. From caribou dying to earthquakes to all hell breaking loose, there was no shortage of catastrophic predictions though the Alaska pipeline now boasts great success roughly 30 years later.

Construction on the pipeline began in 1975, and oil first moved through it on June 20, 1977. Former Secretary of the Interior Gale Norton summed up its success in 2003 (25 years later) that the pipeline produces 17 percent of America’s domestic petroleum. It has pumped nearly 14 billion barrels of oil and $400 billion into our economy.

It created tens of thousands of jobs, from the construction of the pipeline in Alaska to the manufacturing of the pipe in Pennsylvania, to the building of the tankers to transport the oil in Louisiana.

WHAT ABOUT THE CARIBOU?

Over Thirty years later we can see the effects of the pipeline on the caribou. Walter Hickel, a former U.S. Secretary of the Interior and governor of Alaska, said that the caribou herd has not only survived, but FLOURISHED.

In 1977, as the Prudhoe region started delivering oil to America’s southern 48 states, the Central Arctic caribou herd numbered 6,000; it has since grown to 27,128. Alaska’s Department of Fish and Game Web site reports that in general, caribou have not been adversely affected by human activities in Alaska. Pipelines and other manmade objects have been built to accommodate caribou movements, and the animals have adapted to people and machines.

To make a long story short — Beckel is either ignorant or a liar.

Well, thanks :), but I don’t listen to or watch that male sex organ. My exposure to him is merely incidental.

“Beckel is either ignorant or a liar.”

Any reason why he can’t be both?

Well, Sarah wasn’t on the show to actually give Beckel his education, but you get my drift...
