Skip to comments.Carney: "Obama Didn't Turn Down The Keystone Pipeline!" (Can you believe.....)
Posted on 02/21/2012 3:56:01 PM PST by MindBender26
White House press secretary Jay Carney says Republicans "forced" President Obama to deny the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. Later in his press briefing, Carney says Obama didn't turn down the pipeline.
"In terms of Keystone, as you all know, the history here is pretty clear. And the fact is because Republicans decided to play political with Keystone, their action essentially forced the administration to deny the permit process because they insisted on a time frame in which it was impossible to completely approve the pipeline," Carney said when asked about the pipeline by ABC News' Jake Tapper.
Later in the briefing, Carney says it is the Republicans' fault.
Carney: "But the President didn't turn down the Keystone pipeline. There was a process in place, with long precedent, run out of the State Department because of the issue of the pipeline crossing an international boundary, that required an amount of time for proper for review after an alternate route was deemed necessary through Nebraska at the request of the Republican Governor of Nebraska and other stakeholders in Nebraska and the region that needed to play out, to be done appropriately. You can't review and approve a pipeline, the route for which doesn't even exist.
"The Republicans were the ones who unfortunately decided because they were looking for scalps, I guess, or wins in a situation where they somehow found themselves on the wrong side of cutting taxes for 160 million Americans last December. They decided to play politics with this decision and attack the payroll tax cut extension. Even though it was made clear by the State Department that doing so would make it impossible for them to conduct the review responsibly, they did it anyway knowing what the result would be."

“...other stakeholders in Nebraska....” that would be
Warren “tax me more bro” Buffett who wins big financially if Keystone is killed.
If ever a man was cursed with EXACTLY the proper last name in this world.....it’s this twerp.
Excerpted from .... "Send me a bill that bans insider trading by members of Congress; I will sign it tomorrow. Lets limit any elected official from owning stocks in industries they impact."
In fact, that is not urine running down your leg. It is clear, clean rain water.
What a lying POS! The pipeline idea has been in the works for OVER THREE YEARS and has gone through so many hoops they had already spent hundreds of millions of dollars in “studies” and crap the environmental facist “force” them to do.
If the voters don’t throw out this facist regime in November then to hell with America.
btw, shouldn’t the insider trading bill also apply to the President and the puppet masters who control and contribute to his campaign? (i.e. George Soros and the billions he is bilking Americans out of over the Oil crisis he, Obama, Reid and Pelosi have artificially created)
Kerry Redux: I was for the pipeline after I saw what $5+ gas was gonna do to my re-election chances....
Smells like cabbage. Small hands.
Yeah he did!
White House soon to ban and confiscate all DVR`s to prevent any ``misrecordings`` of any statements by anyone in Obummer`s administration.
Please don’t insult Bagdad Bob. Carney is a lying sack of crap. FYI, I almost puked on my keyboard when I watched and listened to the video!
Can you imagine being Jay Carnie? Spending your life on you knees.
He is the wife of Clair Shipman, and they have a daughter together. I’d be willing to bet that they have a female dog too. There isn’t a whiff of testosterone anywhere near this guy or anywhere else in this guy’s life.
So like the trained seal, he barks and claps for the fish from the trainer.
..."Republicans decided to play political with Keystone, their action essentially forced the administration to deny the permit process because they insisted on a time frame in which it was impossible to completely approve the pipeline," Carney said...We can prove it too, because all the unbiased "fact checking" websites owned by The Party of the Single Party State will verify this as the truth, as will the unbiased mass media.
Not too bad. I am not taking several exotic vacations a year and golfing every weekend, but I try not to complain.
Bagdad Bob is alive and well, and doing President 0bama’s press briefings!
That should peg your BS meter off-scale high. What a crock!
I agree that he is another Bagdad Bob. We need to get rid of all these liars, thieves & Socialist.
