Bush Says Keystone Pipeline Is a 'No-Brainer', If Obama Only Had a Brain


"The clear goal ought to be how to get the private sector to grow"


From bloomberg via HotAirPundit:
Keystone XL pipeline, which would carry oil from landlocked Alberta to the U.S. Gulf Coast, is a “no-brainer” that would create jobs and bolster the economy, former President George W. Bush said.

The $7.6 billion Keystone XL line would generate private- sector employment and government revenue, he said at an American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers conference in San Diego. The U.S. government’s budget deficit is unsustainable and must be reduced by supporting industry, Bush said.

The clear goal ought to be how to get the private sector to grow,” said Bush, who spoke during a luncheon at the conference. “If you say that, then an issue like the Keystone pipeline becomes an easy issue.”

President Barack Obama denied a U.S. State Department permit for the 1,661-mile (2,673-kilometer) pipeline in January because of concern that it posed risks to environmentally sensitive areas in Nebraska. Republican senators, including John Hoeven of North Dakota, vowed last week to try again to speed approval of the line after failing to round up enough Democratic support for an amendment that would have expedited the project.

The Senate failed today to adopt a separate amendment proposed by Republican Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas that would have allowed TransCanada to build the pipeline

I love the scarecrow picture! Yeah, definitely fits the man.

I firmly believe the only reason he continues to fight the Keystone Pipeline is to keep the American people under his thumb.

He doesn't want the people to be free from his control and this would yank it out right out his and union hands.

The Keystone Pipeline just doesn't fit into his plans. Sure he would like gasoline prices to come down before the election, but just wait and see what happens should stupid people reelect him. Then the $hit would hit the fan and he would see to it that prices soar. At that time he would never have to answer to the man in the street.

I wonder: Are environmentalists required to ignore the "damage to the environment" made by all those ships and trucks transporting oil and nat gas all over the world, or is that a voluntary effort?

Well said, i suspect many out there are privately wishing it were George Bush running the country.

No, Obama wants to break the fossil fuels economy so he can usher in the Great Green Leap Forward.

The problem is not Obama possessing no brain. The problem is he doesn't care about this country.

Any person who is not civil on my blog, calling me an Obama hating racist will have their comment deleted.

Yeah, everyone who opposes the president's policies is a racist. That takes some twisted pretzel logic thinking to think that. Stop having your head in the sand and being an Obamabot SoulStraw3.
