Well it is time for PM Harper and Canada to give them the finger back. The Democrats don't understand that Canada supplies 20% of their oil. To make them stand up and pay attention, we should have a pipeline malfunction for a week that cuts off all our oil to them. Think gas is expensive now? HA!
What a weak President the US has, they should be embarrassed at how ineffectual he is, but the media remains in his pocket....what they are doing there is not a mystery, being lefties themselves, they will not turn on one of their own. They make a slight gaff by Perry into the end of the world, but criticize Obama for refusing to take a stance on the Keystone pipeline? Forget about it!
Doubling the capacity of an EXISTING pipeline. Well shut that pipeline down for maintenance, we Canadians would hate for an environmental disaster to occur on American soil. Let's ship that 800,000 barrels a day to China instead. Are Americans so uninformed that they don't understand how much oil Canada sends them? Oh, I take that back, most of them still think that the 911 terrorists came through Canada, including Obama's puppet Janet.The Keystone XL pipeline would carry as much as 700,000 barrels of oil a day, doubling the capacity of an existing pipeline operated by TransCanada in the upper Midwest. Supporters say the pipeline to Texas could significantly reduce U.S. dependence on Middle Eastern oil while providing thousands of jobs.TransCanada has said a delay in approval could cost it millions of dollars and keep thousands of people of from getting jobs.The American Petroleum Institute, the oil industry's chief lobbying group, said it was disappointed. "Delaying or denying Keystone XL will damage America's energy and national security," API president Jack Gerard said in a statement.
The U.S. Homeland Security chief has clarified earlier remarks that suggested the 9-11 terrorists entered the U.S. through Canada.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano made the comments during a media interview earlier this week, much to the chagrin of Canadians on both sides of the border.
In a release Tuesday night following the interview, she called Canada a "close ally and an important partner" and said she was simply misunderstood.
"I know that the September 11th hijackers did not come through Canada to the United States," she said in the statement.
"There are other instances, however, when suspected terrorists have attempted to enter our country from Canada to the United States. Some of these are well-known to the public -- such as the Millennium Bomber -- while others are not due to security reasons."
This bimbo wants to charge Canadians an extra $5 to enter the US, talk about petty. And you know that bridge to the US? Forget about it!
The momentum for a new bridge linking Detroit and Canada seems to be waning in Michigan, where the wealthy owner of a private span has waged a pricey public-relations war on television to sink it and a new public opinion poll released this week suggests a majority of voters oppose it.Let me guess, the owner of the present bridge is a Democrat?
Obama is fighting for his political life.....I hear he is on a vacation right now, golfing is he? The US is in a shambles and the guy is golfing? Wise up America, before it is too late.
Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman said the State Department decision was due largely to pressure from Nebraskans. Heineman called a special session of the Nebraska Legislature to address pipeline concerns, including a possible rerouting of the pipeline around the Sandhills.
America needs to understand, it is Canada's oil, if you don't want it, we have other markets, you don't. You import, not export your oil. Wise up.
America gives Canada the finger! We can give them the finger right back, and it will hurt them way more than it will us! Watch.
