Is this a neener neener moment??
Hope they defeat it... we need six dollar gas on election day...either way the GOP gets lucky
There goes his Obamacare Supreme Court case...
There’s gotta be another reason Obama is opposing this no-brainer...probably accepting a lot of $$ from some Big Oil donor like Soros...
The dude that said Obama was being a dick on MSNBC was right. you would have to be a dick not to encourage getting away from foreign oil and keep paying $4.00 a gallon.
He speaketh with two forked tongues. Two faced, you know.
It’ll get passed then obama’s media will report 24-7 that obama has saved us from future high gas prices PLUS he saved the planet.
If it passes, it’s a big repudiation of Obama. Since the dems hate the oil industry and generally don’t seem to care about jobs I have to assume this is the intent. It will give some vulnerable congress dems an issue to put some daylight between themselves and Obama on. And if that’s the case, their polling must look really bad for them and for Obama.
I really hate o say it, but this propoganda writes itself...
Barack Obama June 2012:
“My felow Ameicans. Those of you who are as deeply committed to the preservation of our enviroment as I have been will be pleased to know that, once again, standing up to the forces on the extreme right is the right thing to do.
Many, on both sides of the isle, critcized my decsion to delay an important pipeline that would play a key role in providing our nation with the critical oil resources we need. In the end, however, preventing the permanent threat to our land and water was worth the wait.
I have certainly expended some political capital, and I know some folks have taken pleasure in diriding me as “out of touch” with our energy needs. None of that is true, and I have no regrets in the path that we’ve taken.
As a result of our efforts, I have been presented with an alternate plan. One that answers to the environmental values we hold dear, while also broadening our supply of oil. Both of these goals can be acheived..... BS BS BS” End of propaganda.
You see, it’s simple. And with a compliant media behind him, it’ll fly just fine. We all know he doesn’t want the pipeline. We all know that his reasons go far beyond any environmental nonsense. However, the redirect on the pipeine just gave him an out. (That was an easy fix, why?) In the end, the US gets the pipeline, and Obama pats himself on the back for “protecting the environment” It’s an old movie, and I’m tired of watching it. I feel like the right, once again, played checkers while O was playing chess.
