The Republican-controlled House last night approved a bill saying a presidential permit was not needed to approve the Canada-to-Nebraska leg of the Keystone XL pipeline (TRP), but the vote may have emboldened opposition, as 50 fewer Democrats backed the bill than a similar one a year ago. The bill's fate in the Senate is uncertain, and Pres. Obama has promised a veto.

    Such a big to-do over TRP, when the same EPA, Greenpeace, etc.,
    said almost the same things about the Alaska Pipeline, years ago.
    And they landed hard for being wrong.

    The financial details of the pipeline, where we transport another country's asset across ours, has not been written about sufficiently for most people to make a educated decision on whether the pipeline is beneficial enough for U.S. consumers. Perhaps it is, perhaps it's not. Seems to be a political posturing situation without consumers understanding if there is a benefit.

    Obama is being held hostage by the greens and he in turn is holding up progress in Americas move towards energy independence and the creation of thousands of well paying jobs. In the mean time America continues to buy oil which is actually dirtier from Venezuela and the middle east. This also puts billions in the pockets of regimes that are anti American. The greens - they do not care about anything other than their blind ideological cause!

    IMO, Obama must approve this pipeline. The harsh reality of his vetoing, ultimately, this bill should be enough to make Americans realize how wrong this man is, for our times. And oil 'justice.'
