Obama Sticks To His Priorities

February 24, 2014

Say one thing for President Barack Obama: When he sets priorities, he sticks to them. Take the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline, which could help the U.....

Yes, listen to the oil companies. They would never lie to us.

Psycho- the Xl pipeline oil gets refined in this country. Seeing as how there are more than 5,000 different products derived from this refining, I would hope even you can realize we don't export most of them. Quit listening to Democratic strategists and educate yourself. Then again, you're probably comfortable with D.C. since we're currently stuck with the inmates running the asylum.

The president went to liberal colleges and followed a progressive/socialist path.

Romney learned how to run a business and ran a successful one turning bankrupt companies into profitable ones. He saved us a national embarrassment by taking over the floundering US Olympics construction and got it finished on time. He had the expertise to pull this country out of trouble.

We voted for the socialist. We got what we paid for.

Well…Sarah Palin went to 5 universities for one degree in basket weaving. She's smarter than a tea-bagger, but not quite as smart as Peter Griffin, maybe along the lines of a cabbage.

The article is about Obama and his actions. Did you miss that while celebrating a bunch of "firsts"? Any time you feel up to some honesty monkey, let me know.

This myopic community organizer thinks white kids raised with no Father, inner city dominated by people of color are still expected to get out and do well without help. Because well, you know, they're white. It's a white privilege thing. Uh-huh. Maybe it's a culture of color that holds the rest back? That's ignorant racism people. Two universities, and he didn't learn a thing.

Right now Obama is on TV launching 200million dollars foe "my brother's keeper force" being "young men of color". Well, bro.....that's why I don't like you. You ain't my brother, and you're getting real heavy.

The oil from the proposed pipeline was never-ever intended for the USA. Where did you get the idea that it would help ease domestic oil needs. How many jobs were going to be created by this? Yeah, Obama's been creating jobs by the millions, and the few jobs created by this pipeline just won't matter for that statistic. Bush would have been happy with any job growth, bush ended up losing well over eight million jobs. Obama's had good job growth numbers, and the pipeline's jobs just won't matter, and the oil wasn't going to us anyhow.

James, if becoming a target were the case, why haven't "they" been targeting all those pipelines already in existence? If one were to rely on your logic, Obama should immediately cease all rail transport because of the potential environmental damage. I wonder just how long Warren Buffett would stay his buddy if Obama were to do so. This is just more nonsense by our government. Obama has presided over the expansion of the TSA's groping and intensive pat-downs of airport passengers in the name of safety. How many other countries do this? If it's so necessary, why don't I hear of other country's having planes blown out of the sky.

That oil is already being transported through the country BY RAIL. Much better to have it located in a single pipeline line where folks can prepare for any possible spill ahead of time. I'll start listening to you anti's when you start living like the Amish. I enjoy the comforts of modern living and will accept the possible drawbacks that accompany it.

It's much easier to advance a social agenda than take action to create good paying jobs, especially when you have no knowledge of how job creation is accomplished. Keep sending your kids to liberal arts colleges and see how fast you can ruin a country. .

Digger, the only "oil" we would see from this pipeline is that which is spilled.

Seadog, look up the tar sand they are proposing to send through this pipeline. It's not like anything else being piped anywhere in this country. And a whole billion dollars in stimulus money? The feds are printing 85 billion dollars a month to pump into the markets.

So Chuck2, employing 40,000 jobless people temporarily is no a good thing? Wouldn't they be considered "shovel ready" or is that a term just used to justify a billion dollar stimulus?

All those jobs are extremely temporary and the produce will be shipped to Asia who pays more than Americans. Foolish thought that it would bring down gas prices. It will make the oil barrons richer and more powerful. Dream on.

"What happens when there is a break in the pipeline"?

James, is it just this pipeline, that would create thousands of jobs, you are concerned about? What about the thousands of miles of EXISTING pipelines in this country? Must be the "enemy" doesn't know about them. More tree hugger paranoia.

Tesoro Logistics pipeline, North Dakota, 1,000,000 barrels.

Exxon Mobile Mayflower pipeline, Arkansas, 5,000 to 7,000 barrels.

Enbridge Inc. Athabasca pipeline, Alberta, 1,400 barrels.

Exxon Mobile Silvertip pipeline, Yellowstone River, 1,500 barrels.

Enbridge Inc. 6B pipeline, Kalamazoo River, 19,500 barrels.

What? Me worry?

A comment from the Observer I read. Anyone think he may have a point? This would be a disaster that dwarfs the damage of 9/11 to the country.

Everyone that is pushing for this pipeline, I have one question. What happens when there is a break in the pipeline? Not if, WHEN. Ground water polluted by the nastiest sludge possible. Farms and livestock wiped out from lack of water. Are you ready to start buying your (now very expensive) drinking water by the pint? Is that really worth the few permanent jobs this thing will create? And the reason I say when is simple. There are enough wackos out there that would target the thing just to damage America. There is no way to secure this proposed pipeline from sabotage by an enemy.
