The Obama Administration announced yet another delay in the Keystone XL Pipeline. After multiple delays citing environmental issues (none found) and other such nonsense, now they are citing a Nebraska court case that could possibly affect the route of the pipeline.
This issue should be a plain and simple slam-dunk for Republicans. You have democrats crying foul about it including Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA): “Today’s decision by the administration amounts to nothing short of an indefinite delay of the Keystone pipeline. This decision is irresponsible, unnecessary, and unacceptable.” In fact, 11 democrats (many facing tough battles this fall) wrote President Obama a message urging him to make a decision by the end of May. Clearly, this is being done for political reasons. All of these cases and complaints could have been addressed quickly and either a go or no-go decision made.
It’s simple: President Obama is anti-job. This pipeline will get built – whether it ships to Canadian harbors on the west coast or south through the United States, that oil will get extracted and processed. We just need to decide whether we want a part of the action in terms of jobs and revenue.
While the democrats continue to blast the GOP recently during their gloating over the 7.5 million people enrolled in ACA*, specifically saying that the GOP has no alternative plan to offer**, the democrats continue to fumble on any sort of plan for jobs recovery. Instead, they continue to put up roadblocks in front of any sort of pro-business, pro-growth policy. How obstructionist!
* As discussed, this number is relatively meaningless until more details are forthcoming.
** And the GOP has offered alternative options but the Senate democrats have blocked them
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
