Coward-in-Chief Punts on the Pipeline

The proposed Keystone XL oil pipeline (from Canada to Texas) pits one Obama base against another. Union bosses want the jobs; environmental extremists (predictably) oppose everything having anything to do with hydrocarbons.

The Calgary Herald reports
“[This project] has been subject to 36 months of review - dutifully following a prescribed process that resulted in thousands of pages of documentation”
After all that bureaucratic red tape, Obama -- scared to death of alienating either base -- played the coward, kicked the can down the road, put the blame on the State Department and destroyed what little confidence anybody in the private sector might have had that there was any chance of creating jobs and doing business under the capricious tyranny of this loony tunes administration.

With this move, the Narcissist-in-Chief once again demonstrates that the ONLY thing he cares about is trying to get reelected.

Quoting The [predictably Leftist] New York Times:
“The Obama administration… announced Thursday that it would review the route of the disputed Keystone XL oil pipeline, effectively delaying any decision about its fate until after the 2012 election…

The move is the latest in a series of administration decisions pushing back thorny environmental matters beyond next November’s presidential election…

Mr. Obama said in an interview with an Omaha television station last week that he would make the ultimate decision about the pipeline, but sought to portray Thursday’s announcement as solely a State Department matter and not the result of political calculation…

TransCanada said that it would work with the State Department to find a new route, but warned that delay could kill the project, and with it tens of thousands of construction and related jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenues.”
