Keystone Decision Delayed Again!


The Obama administration has yet again delayed a decision on the Keystone Xl pipeline. What a shock.

The Obama administration’s decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline will not be made until at least June, a U.S. official said, which would delay the project for months and frustrate backers of Canada’s oil sands.

“We’re talking the beginning of summer at the earliest,” said the source, who did not want to be identified due to the sensitive nature of the TransCanada Corp project, which has been pending for more than four and a half years. “It’s not weeks until the final decision. It’s months.”

A series of steps still have to be taken by the State Department, where the decision will be made because the 830,000 barrels per day crude oil pipeline crosses the national border. The pipeline will link Alberta’s oil sands and North Dakota’s Bakken shale fields to refineries and ports in Texas. (Read More)

No doubt when June rolls along they will delay again. Who needs jobs when they can just sign everyone up for the welfare?

Oh, but he said the economy still stinks because of “bad decisions.” Yeah right, the very bad decision by voters to keep him in office.
