Where crude oil is concerned, Canada waits for no country. It doesnt matter how wealthy or how friendly that country is -- or whether that country is the United States.
With the Canada-to-Texas Keystone XL pipeline stuck in limbo on the U.S. side, Canadas Energy Board recently gave a thumbs up to a $6.5 billion pipeline designed to carry 525,000 barrels of oil per day from the oil sands of Alberta to ships on the British Columbia coast. The final destination is most likely Asia.
The development has the U.S. oil industry attacking the Obama administration over its drawn-out process.
Its taken longer to approve the Keystone XL pipeline than it did to win World War II, longer than it took us to put a man in space, and almost as long as it took to build the Trans-Continental railroad 155 years ago, said Jack Gerard, president of the American Petroleum Institute.

Don’t forget it took like a year and a half to build the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings and that was during that late 1920’s and early 1930’s and the latter was built during the Great Depression.
On the other hand they’re quietly expanding capacity on other pipelines like the Embridge line.
The Keystone is one of Obama’s most damaging policies. Can’t blame this one on Bush.
In my view it’s traitorous that 0bama refuses to make this decision, it was already cleared by the State Dept.
Meanwhile, The Bozo is back in his office saying “It worked. It worked. My plan worked.”
Obummer and the dumbocrats are on the Chinese payroll...they are deliberately trying to spike the project and divert the Canadian oil away from the US.
The bad news is that the US lost hundreds of millions in economic activity because Obama said “no” to an easy decision.
The good news for Obama is his supporters are so mind-numbingly dumb that they think this is a good thing.
Warren Buffett will upset - fewer of his trains hauling oil.
Thanks 0bama. Thanks environazis. It was obvious someone was going to use that oil.
“To: Nowhere Man
In my view its traitorous that 0bama refuses to make this decision, it was already cleared by the State Dept.”.......
There is no other explanation than to describe odumbo as a “dictator”.
Why is this entire county letting one person dictate what the rest of the nation “is” plus what we can and cannot do?
The House and the Senate have been so busy figuring how to spend all the money in the United States and then some that they haven’t had time to deal with pushing for anything that might create jobs or American freedom.
Five years to build Hoover Dam. Finished two years ahead of schedule.
The US won’t lose access to the tar sands oil. Instead of a direct pipeline they will just have to line up their tankers at Kitimat, behind the Chinese.
The tree huggers and global warming cultists ought to be crapping on their Birkenstocks as that nasty Canadian oil will soon be going to China whose environmental record is abysmal and be spewed out in green house gasses at many times the rate if that oil had been sent to the US.
You couldn’t be more right. We get lip service from the leadership of both parties and important business takes a back seat.
Prime example is Turban Durbin and three other Rat Sens. having a fit over celebrities smoking smoking eCigs at the Golden Globes. *sheesh*
