How many surveys on the XL will the Wheeling connection run. This is what the third time this question is put out. What does an entity not involved in the pipeline want it so badly.. What is their connection to the Koch's. Beat a dead horse and while you are at it, give ole rushslide a whack or two.

First, President Obama can issue an executive order to repeal the ACA.

Second, he, President Obama, can resign from office.

Both actions will help America immensely.

There'll be dancing in the streets.

Canada has been unable to secure 2 proposed western routes to export these tar sands and an eastern route is said to have no chance.

Canadians are 46/47% for & against the very development of these tar sands while Americans seem headed towards those same numbers.

20 famous German scientists have resigned from a Canadian funded study citing influence. The EU's proposed fuel quality directive reducing carbon emissions would be compromised by refining the world's dirtiest crude.

Industrialized nations do not regard refined tar sands contracted to Asian markets as environmentally or economically sound at this time.

With all the available data, this project should have been dead in the water 5 yrs. ago.

Heck NO....where were the Canadians when we needed help finding WMDs in Iraq?...probably fishing/recreating on the Rafferty/Alameda reservoirs that flooded the valley in 2011...the very reservoirs we paid for with our tax dollars in the 80s.

Maybe when*****freezes. Oil is red and does not miss a chance to bash our president. Now they whine because they can't trick or treat at the white house. I would be all 4 it if it made economic sense. Approving the line is as dumb as storing their nuclear waste. Maybe they could approve his jobs bill and raise the min. wage to sweeten the pot. What fool would drill oil without a good transport system? Maybe next time they will think b4 they try to steamroll their way and bash at will. I am proud our Pres. stood up to them. They needed a spanking.

The media’s massive revisions on CBO-Obamacare story

By Erik Wemple February 4 at 7:03 pm

In January of 2010, Trans-Canada CEO Russell Girling claimed that the project would produce 13,000 construction jobs. In April of 2011 the number grew to 20,000, which the Canadian Ambassador reiterated in August 2011. In January 2012 the number was revised back down to 13,000 and this past April the company revised that number even lower, to 9,000 construction jobs. Meanwhile, both the federal government and the Global Labor Institute at Cornell University’s College of Industrial and Labor Relations examined TransCanada’s application and made their own job creation estimates, at 6,000-6,500 and 2,500-4,500 respectively. A State Department study projects only 35 permanent jobs in pipeline maintenance and inspection.

John Boehner 01-31-14 100,000 shovel ready jobs.John Hoeven 04-2012 as many as 200,000.

"Justa whats the CBO Obamacare story got to do with the pipline.. Too much spirts with your lunch????"

If I'm not mistaken, you posted the fallacious misleading story by the media on job losses from Obamacare yesterday on 3 different unrelated polls & editorials.

Am I correct?

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who unsuccessfully sought the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, once pegged the number of potential pipeline jobs at being anywhere from "100,000 to one million."

A financial analysis paid for by TransCanada also said another 250,000 to 550,000 some spin-off jobs could be created over the 100-year life of the project.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the nation's largest business advocacy group, supports construction of the pipeline. Its president and chief executive officer, Thomas J. Donohue, called on the Obama administration to approve construction, saying it would create a quarter million new American jobs.

Boehner claimed later in January 2012 that the Keystone pipeline would create "over 100,000 indirect jobs" as well some 20,000 direct jobs.

Our nationwide expert on propane said higher exports shorted our domestic supplies and caused the price to double. He said nothing about drying corn 4 ethanol. Oil will lie about ethanol at every opportunity. Any alternative to gas/diesel threatens their massive profits and they will bad mouth any alternative energy source. I would rather pay a local farmer than some tycoon living in Dubai Ports World.
