Kerry: Iím approaching the Keystone XL pipeline with a totally blank slate
Hotair ^ | March 13 | ERIKA JOHNSEN

During a hearing on the State Department’s 2015 budget, Ms. Landrieu, a Democrat who has been a strong pipeline proponent and faces a tough re-election fight this year, pressed Mr. Kerry to approve the project, which would carry crude from Canada’s oil sands and from North Dakota’s Bakken Shale Formation to Gulf Coast refineries.

Ms. Landrieu, the new chairwoman of the Senate Energy Committee, said, “Canada is our closest, strongest trading partner,” and “a majority of American people” support Keystone. “It is hard for me to understand why there are still questions about whether building this pipeline is in our national interest,” she said.

Mr. Kerry, who is currently reviewing whether the pipeline is in the national interest, assured Ms. Landrieu that he is looking at the issue objectively.

“I understand it’s on a lot of people’s minds, a mean a lot of people’s,” said Mr. Kerry, who noted that he has to review public comments along with his department’s lengthy environmental impact report and must “get feedback from eight different agencies.”

“So I’m not at liberty to go into my thinking at this point,” he said, adding, that he is approaching the matter “tabula rasa.”

“a totally blank slate”... I assume he’s describing his brain.

Well thank you, John. On the other hand, most of us are perfectly clear that you are a flaming idiot.

There is definitely something blank about his slate.

Well, Johnnyboy, I have to say that a blank slate is about all you do have to offer. BTT

The only thing blank about Kerry is his brain.

With a comment like that, the jokes make themselves. For many reasons, he’d be perfect in any remake of the’ Wizard of Oz’. He already comes “without a brain” and to see that face, you gotta think crows won’t even get close.

Blank stare maybe. His brain(?) is a blank slate. Or just a piece of slate.

I predict the pipeline gets approved before the election, and unapproved after, sort of like the nuclear power plant in Georgia.

Oh I could tell you why
The ocean’s near the shore
I could think of things I’ve never thought before
And then I’d stop - and think some more . . . .
