Bayou Buzz ^ | 2/11/14

Posted on 02/11/2014 4:02:50 PM PST by Libloather

**SNIP**

“I am excited and honored to lead this committee that is so critical to Louisiana and the nation’s economic vitality, job creation and energy security. I’m humbled to be a part of the long list of pro-energy senators from both parties who have led this committee with strength, vision and distinction, including one of Louisiana’s finest, J. Bennett Johnston

“During the coming weeks and months, I will remain focused on moving an agenda forward that is inclusive, bipartisan and focused on the job creation that America needs and wants. Everything we do will be part of helping to build the middle class and expanding opportunities for entrepreneurs in the domestic energy sector. Increasing domestic energy production and fortifying and expanding the infrastructure that connects producers, refiners and consumers will help us achieve this goal."

You've got that right. The pipeline is the only thing that could possibly divert the voters from 0bamaCare.

How long will it take solar power and windmills to charge up to deliver the jolt? Could take many months.

"Hope she doesn't get too comfy."

You do realize, I hope, that this makes her MUCH harder to beat.

Interesting in that Wyden became chair of the committee in Jan. 2013. He is now
moving to chair the Finance Committee. Sounds like musical chairs to get Mary some
leverage in her race for re-election.

I hope and pray that the good people of Louisiana aren’t taken in by this subterfuge of Harry Reid and Obama.

Let's give Mary Landrieu credit where credit is due: Mary Landrieu knows how to negotiate and work the system, which is exactly what we should expect from a politician with deep Louisiana roots. I wish the Republicans had a Speaker of the House with this kind of political skill.

She is, nonetheless, a lying, cheating skank. The many conservatives in Louisiana deserve better.

Same here. Maybe auction off some hand turns on a few local generators to help. Bet the proceeds would be a nice chunk of change.

I will be happy to drive over to Louisiana to volunteer to flip the switch. With my sense of humor, I would be flipping on and off rapidly and enthusiastically. :-)

Obama will grant the Canadian pipeline and Dear Mary will claim credit and bamboozle her way into another election win, you can bet on it.

Watch how much tax money she now starts redirecting back to her state before November.
