Kerry says US will not be pressured into decision on long-delayed Keystone pipeline
Fox News ^ | Jan. 17, 2014 | AP

Posted on 01/17/2014 7:49:26 PM PST by Washi

Brushing aside pressure from Canada, Secretary of State John Kerry said Friday that the United States will not be pushed into making a decision on the long-delayed Keystone XL pipeline.

At a joint appearance with Canada's foreign affairs minister, John Baird, Kerry said he has not received a crucial environmental report on the $7 billion pipeline, which would carry oil from western Canada to refineries in Texas.

"My hope is that before long, that analysis will be available, and then my work begins," Kerry said, referring to a recommendation he is expected to make on whether the pipeline is in the U.S. national interest. The State Department has jurisdiction over the pipeline because it crosses an international border.

Kerry, who has rarely spoken about the pipeline since taking office a year ago, said "a lot of questions" were raised about the project in a lengthy public comment period the State Department conducted. "Those comments have necessitated appropriate answers," he said.

An idiot like Kerry making decisions on what is necessary for this country’s energy needs. Utterly amazing.

The pipeline project won’t be approved until the correct insiders have been given the plummiest contracts and enough campaign donations have been made.

Most of the officers I served under in my ten years in the USN were at least competent, many exceptional ... then there were the Kerry types.

He [Kerry] reached his level of incompetence at OCS. p> The FReeper Congressman BillyBob, since deceased, was at Yale at the same time as Kerry. They debated on several occasions.

BillyBob contended that "the insufferably pompous, arrogant asshole" was way beyond his depth at Yale.

Congressman BillyBob is sorely missed. I never met him, though he lived up the mountain from us. We had some great correspondence and a few conversations.

I did not know that he was able to document how consistent Kerry’s “character” has been since his late teenaged years. I guess Obama keeps Kerry around to make himself look good, in comparison.

Kerry does have Obama beat as a gigolo, though.

I’ve come to the conclusion that our political “leaders” are chosen at birth. Or at least at a very young age. Otherwise how do dummies like Kerry and Gore and all the rest, from both parties, climb to such heights?

Got a better idea, we’ll keep the oil, you guys sneak into our country across the border and become illegals, and we’ll give you everything you need while you make us feel like racists. How does that sound?

I know.

Not that he needed any injections to make him do and say stupid things.

The Canadians aren’t waiting any longer. The pipeline from Edmonton to Kitimat will be started soon. The Chinese will buy the oil if the Americans don’t want it.

Please do not attempt to blame John Kerry on Yale.

The responsibility for his incredible ascent is due entirely to the Masshole Voter, Gawd Bless'im, who thought he was voting for yet another Kennedy. It's dark in those commonwealth voting booths, the voter often intoxicated and astigmatic, so as the Democrat bends over to cast one of his many votes of the day, all he can see is the "K" and the "Y."

Kerry contributed to this for years, claiming to be an Irishman and in fact, a Kennedy "cousin," although actually an exotic genetic potpourri of Jew and Yankee, with a soupcon of French, and who actually passed as a hockey player and Roman Catholic acolyte, or so we are told.

Furthermore, the same folks who brought you Elizabeth Warren and Mumbles Mennino can not be expected to research Kerry's record at Yale. He did get a "B" in French.
