Cheap energy provided by the boom in domestic oil and gas is powering the U.S. economy, but it didn't get a mention in Pres. Obama’s inaugural address. One of Obama's most pressing choices will be whether to approve the Keystone (TRP) pipeline; that, and his decisions on replacements for departing heads of the Interior and Energy agencies will go far in signaling his plans for the second term.

    Cheap energy, which is good for Americans, is bad for Obama's anti-domestic energy Occupation Regime which continues to waste billions of taxpayers dollars on green subsidies.

    "...will go far in signaling his plans for the second term."

     

    Oh, come now. You've answered your own question with: "Cheap energy provided by the boom in domestic oil and gas is powering the U.S. economy, but it didn't get a mention in Pres. Obama’s inaugural address."

     

    Besides. Have you forgotten "Forward!"

     

    President Obama laid out a second term of gay-green energy. It really doesn't matter who his next Energy Tsar is as Obama rules by Executive Order.

     

    I did have to laugh as he went through the pretense of swearing fidelity to the Constitution on stack of Bibles. Didn't anyone mention that the book frowns on gay fibbing?

     

    Oh well, Forward!

    woo woo woo woo woo! where do you guys all get the matching helmets with the flashing lights?

     

    gay green energy?

     

    for years us stocks weren't touched so you could pay our friends the saudis through your noses. energy self-sufficiency? 'member?

     

    domestic us production is up so much canadian oil plays, pure sweet light plays, mind you, not the synthetic goo, are going begging.

     

    it's cheaper for them to rail than to pipe due to the surcharges the pipes put on them.

     

    there is a lot of talk that the pipe will be underutilised due to to expansion of us production. might be a waste of money.

     

    cheap education? what planet are you from?

    Rail is only being used due to the delay in adding pipeline capacity. Rail is actually 2-3 times more expensive than pipelines. Pipelines are also way safer. This is why pipe has always been the industries preferred method of transport.
