Nebraska nod puts Keystone pipeline decision squarely on Obama

The Globe and Mail -- TransCanada Corp.’s controversial Keystone XL pipeline project has cleared a key hurdle in Nebraska, leaving U.S. President Barack Obama to decide whether the promised benefits of energy security and construction jobs will trump concerns over climate change.

Environmentalists took that as a signal that the Keystone XL pipeline is in trouble, but proponents note the State Department concluded in an earlier environmental assessment that the pipeline itself would not contribute to higher greenhouse-gas emissions because production would occur in the oil sands with or without it.

We know how bad the Bummer leadership really is. In fact, he doesn't know the first thing about leadership and how to help this country.

Concidering the climate issue is really a hoax... now will be the opportunity to see if Obama is really a leader for the people or a road block to getting America back on the way to its former status (lost over the last 4 years).

This will get passed as they don't want Canada sending their oil directly to China and the government knows that Canada will sell it if the US turns it down.

This will create jobs. Of course our President somehow failed to mention jobs in his recent Inaugural Address. His Jobs Council hasn't met in over a year. IHMO his plan to reduce unemployment is to get more and more people to give up looking for jobs and thus be dropped by the government bean counters from the unemployment stats.
