Skip to comments.Kerry says US will not be pressured into decision on long-delayed Keystone pipeline

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.

Kerry, ye wee stupid beastie
An idiot like Kerry making decisions on what is necessary for this country’s energy needs. Utterly amazing.
The Peter Principle in action.
Yeah, we cannot be too hasty with the 2014 election coming. And all those anti-pipeline campaign bucks coming in...
“An idiot like Kerry making decisions on what is necessary for this countrys energy needs. Utterly amazing.
The Peter Principle in action.”
You took the words right out of my mouth.
He hit the Peter Principle when he was an officer in the Navy, if not sooner.
The pipeline project won’t be approved until the correct insiders have been given the plummiest contracts and enough campaign donations have been made.
Could someone in the Mainstream media PLEASE cover this guy’s history as an absolute creep from Yale to the Senate?
Isn’t ANYONE willing to take on this guy once and for all?
Thats because they already made the decision.
He reached his level of incompetence at OCS.
I'm amazed that they got all that from "You Rang, Uhgggggg!"
and how long have we and the Canadians been waiting for a decision??
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.
What else would a sanctimonious, successful, serial gigolo liftist say?
BillyBob contended that "the insufferably pompous, arrogant asshole" was way beyond his depth at Yale.
Thankfully, few and, for the most part, far between.
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.
All of these people are criminals.
It is time we define them.
He reached his level of incompetence at OCS.”
I was thinking more at the level of kindergarten, but he was smart enough to marry the Heinz money so guess he’s not so dumb after all.
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?
Tough guy deals a blow to the Eskimos while snorkeling Iranian ass.
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?
The Botox is working its wonders on Kerry.
Not that he needed any injections to make him do and say stupid things.
We are governed by FOOLS!
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.
They will wait until Canada gives up, then blame them for not respecting our processes or something like that.
Couldn’t have said it better myself!
Kerry also makes Biden look better.
Although Kerry looks like his botox is sagging...in clumps.
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.
