Protestors call on Obama to reject Keystone XL pipeline
[CNN] Less than two weeks after Barack Obama won his re-election campaign, protesters gathered Sunday to call on the president and his administration to reject the proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, and to act on climate change.

While Republican candidate Mitt Romney said he would support construction of the 1,700-mile pipeline, for the jobs he said the pipeline would create, Obama in the past has rejected rapid approval, citing what he called the "arbitrary nature" of the deadline Republicans proposed for passage and the need for sufficient time for the State Department to gather information necessary for a project that crosses into the American border.

#6  Because the environment is helped by oil being shipped to China by sea rather than in nice safe pipes that we control and watch?

I mean really? If we screw the ocean doesn't impact us? Isn't that the opposite of what the environmentalists have been saying for decades?

#5  Just because the Greens are taking Saudi money doesn't make them complicit in trying to stifle America. No, wait! It does.

#3  A 1700 mile long pipeline will create thousands of jobs for hard working men and wymin driving F-150's, but will have little immediate impact on the urban poor (leftest voting constituents), nor will it do anything for the OPEC oil sheiks.
