Various media outlets are reporting that at a press conference this afternoon the State Department will reject going forward with the Keystone XL pipeline as it is currently defined but will allow TransCanada, the company behind the pipeline, to offer a new proposal.
Few things so clearly exemplify the mindset of the Obama Administration and its deep hatred of inexpensive energy. It trumps even its love of labor unions (in part because its greater love is for public sector unions rather than industrial and private sector unions).
When a liberal campaign contribution “bundler” for President Obama says that she would have a hard time raising more money for Obama if the pipeline went forward, you know you’re living in a nation being influenced, if not dominated, by people who don’t love the environment as much as they hate humanity.
Every once in a while, the Obama Administration is put (or puts itself) in a position that even it can’t spin into a tale with broad appeal.
This is one of those situations. And while I’d much rather have cheaper, more reliable energy supplies than yet another issue to hold against Democrats in November, we do have to be slightly grateful every time Obama shows what he really believes, especially in a way that pits him against many large unions, as the rejection of Keystone XL does.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
