    If Bush had rejected this oil pipeline you'd have argued how he was hurting the working man but since Obama did it you have no choice but to cheer him on.

    Canada has announced that the oil they were going to sell to the USA will now be sold to China. Makes perfect sense to me ..... not.

    This is just yet ANOTHER bill favoring oil profit over American well-being.

    Your choice.

    I don't see how anything could even be studied or planned until Nebraska decides where it wants its share of the pipeline to run. Until Nebraska decides, the project is naturally on hold.

    Nothing has been reviewed, studied, and reviewed again than this pipeline. Basically, Obama is stalling, and doesn't want america to have jobs.
