Posted on 02/04/2014 3:56:40 PM PST by Kaslin
As approval of the Keystone Pipeline continues to be an issue of debate, Speaker Boehner felt it was necessary to give the president a nudge with some impassioned words. After a member of the press asked Speaker Boehner whether the pipeline plan was too complex to attach to legislation raising the debt ceiling, he quickly responded by shooting that idea down.
"Complex? The Keystone pipeline is complex?" Boehner said. "It's been under study for five years!
"We build pipelines everywhere in American everyday. Do you realize there are 200,000 miles of pipelines in the United States?
"The only reason that the president's involved in the Keystone pipeline is because it crosses an international boundary. Listen, we can build it. There's nothing complex about the Keystone pipeline. It's time to build it," Boehner added.
Boehner then went on to say that President Obama should stick to his promises of ending a time when science took a back seat to ideology. But of course, all of this is just speculation until there is actually a plan.
As of right now there is still plenty of time left in the 90 day time period it will take to get the State Department review. Until then, we wont be seeing the pipeline attached or moved to any bills. At this point, really anything is possible, but clearly the GOP is quite interested in moving the country forward in terms of energy production.
Well, proof is in the pudding.
I hope he sat down right away before he passed out.
Did Boehner slither out today?
Tens of millions of illegal immigrants cross our borders, and the President is too busy to take immediate action.
A piss-ant pipeline heads for a border, and his State Department people arrive on the scene within minutes.
For how long? Until he does not.
Bonehead is actually up for something! I am stunned!
Until the dims tell him to cave, like he always does.
I guess bambi must have told him it was ok.
until obozo tells him to shut up and sit down
He does something right and you are still bitching. *rme*
Gee, I’m sure the fact that dozens of Dems are sweating it out and telling Obuttwipe to give, had nothing to do with Boehner’s sudden burst of courage.
That would be Dutch courage from one extra afternoon cocktail.
Did boner decide to grow a set?
