Obama Should Allow Keystone XL

February 20, 2013

Perhaps President Barack Obama should worry more about the American people than about radical environmentalists who have bullied him during his first four years, never satisfied with his own......

Thousands march to protect our enviroment. Those are Americans. How do they differ from other Americans who protest? I agree with Pres. Obama NOT to move forward with that leaky pipeline. Keystone XL is wrong for Canada and wrong for America. Canada should move that gunk over their land not ours.

This editorial is patently ludicrous. The editor's distain for the President, once again drives him to fabricate the truth and misinform his readers. The facts are that there is no proof that the sour crude pumped from Canada to our refineries will remain in the U.S. If the pipeline is built, the Canadians will have the ability (and the strong incentive) to place the refined oil to the highest bidder (how do you say higher prices?) The fact is that our Midwest states already consume a large part of Canadian oil. The other argument that by not allowing the pipeline will wreck our relations with Canada is equally ridiculous. This is in the mind of the editor. No one else's. It is a fabrication. Finally, even TransCanada concedes that the pipeline would only create a few hundred permanent jobs. Moral of story: read this paper with a very wary eye!

So this editor is saying that TransCanada is going to sell the United States this oil for $25 a barrel when they could sell it on the world market for $100 a barrel. I CALL BULL SHIP

there are no laws against selling oil from the US to overseas there should not be...building the pipeline would not be paid for by our would generate many jobs..but that's in the private sector..we can't have that..we must have more gov jobs that produce nothing...the pipeline would be safe and not harm the enviroment...gas prices are set by the value of the money used and the distance to many people never learn simple economics

Of course it should be approved....Hey Hoopie.. What leaky pipeline? It's not even built!!! Ever hear of the one in Alaska? Heard of any leaks? So here's the deal. Obummer is a Muslim so he will support Middle East oil...It's his purpose in life..we're infidels remember. Let's see if his Muslim buds make $10.00 a barrel...7 million a month....2.5 billion a year for his brothers...$10.00 is low because they don't deal with his EPA....Get Smart...wait you voted for him..too late...

As reported by Bloomberg more than a year ago, in "Keystone’s Thousands of Jobs Fall to 20 When Pipeline Opens", the Keystone XL pipeline, according to the US Government;s own estimates, will support about 20, yes 20, full-time US jobs. It is much like the Shale Gas mania: When all the wells are drilled and pipelines have been laid, and the gas is flowing out of state, and the Okies and Texicans have gone home, what, exactly, gas-based employment opportunities will remain in WV? The Canadian tar will flow to already-existing refineries where the employment will remain static. There is very, very little economic benefit that will accrue to the US. At best, we'll only be maintaining good relations with Canada.

Liberals Prove again they are liberals because they are completely ignorant of any facts, just full of Obama Bulls***t.

A Canadian Company is going to spend $8 BILLION and build about 1200 miles of pipeline and some of you are STUPID enough to think that is only 20 jobs??????

The Keystone XL project will bring significant economic benefits to the U.S. during construction and operations

• Private sector investment of more than $20 billion in the U.S. economy – AT NO COST to American taxpayers (food, lodging, fuel, vehicles, equipment, and other construction supplies and services),

• The creation of about 20,000 construction and manufacturing jobs, which will increase the personal income of American workers by $6.5 billion,

• Generating more than $585 million in new taxes for states and communities along the pipeline route,

• More than $5.2 billion generated in property taxes during the operating life of the pipeline, and

• Strengthening America’s energy security by increasing the supply of safe, secure and reliable oil from Canadian oil sands.

Cluel*** fool, you just don't understand. I think the $25 is wrong but it is a FACT that Canadian Shale oil sells to the US for prices of a minimum of $25 to sometimes $30 a barrel LESS than OPEC.

The REASON is that the shale OIL is not the same GRADE as Saudi sweet crude--it is heavier and NOT ALL REFINERIES can take the oil. So it is not as marketable as "non" shale oil.

Amazing a company will spend $20 BILLION of PRIVATE MONEY, not US tax money and created as high as 100,000 jobs counting trickle down and support.

WHO GIVES a {BLEEP} if they sell oil to foreign countires?? It creates thousands of jobs in A-M-E-R-I-C-A, duh!

What gives liberals a&&holes the right to dictate WHERE Canada sells it oil????

Wonder why unemployment is chronic 8% under Owebama$???

Google Fox News piece titled: Six reasons Keystone XL was a bad deal all along". You can read it yourselves. Listed reasons are: 1) would not reduce foreign oil dependency, 2)would have increased domestic oil prices 3) overstated number of jobs to be created 4)leaked 12 times in last year 5) environmental concerns about leaks are justified 6)mining tar sands would worsen global warming.

I usually don't trust Fox News, but surprised they published these reasons from their contributor. Tar sand oil is unsustainable in that it takes more energy to produce the oil than the energy returned. Just a dumb idea. We should just practice more conservation.

Well no duh she's a progressive. I was just surprised Fox would print that. Not like Wheeling Int. would. But good golly DaWraith, take some blood thinner before you keel over. Your skanky outbursts are revealing of your condition. She's absolutely right on these facts though. Guess Fox news editors saw her side of it too.

She is completely WRONG on NO facts, DirtyDishWater!

It was an OPINION Piece, you are too stupid to know the difference?

WHERE did the "facts" come from??

FACT: there are ALREADY 25,000 miles of oil pipelines crossing the Olagawa Acquifer in Nebraska for the past 40 years. What is another couple of hundred???

Drama Queens!

Blocking the construction of this pipeline is simply indefensible by any standards set in reality. Minimizing job creation AND keeping fuel prices soaring, he's getting really good at this stuff! If this doesn't prove to you the environmentalist agenda of this administration, then you truly are a liberal zombie following your progressive masses.

"The Republican governor of nebraska asked for changes in the route of the pipeline."

From USA Today, Jan 2013, "The Republican governor of Nebraska asked for changes in the route of the pipeline."
