  1. If predictions of $5 per gallon gasoline come to fruition this summer, and Republicans can pin the blame on Obama for failing to approve the pipeline, it could be a potent campaign issue.

    Maybe some of the one-issue voters can waive their gay marriage licenses at the gas station attendant and see if he’ll give them a discount.

  2. It also sounds to me like the SCOAMF is throwing a tantrum. “I’ll show those Republicans, by cancelling their pipeline!” Not caring how many jobs he destroys in the process.

  3. Obama said he was not acting on the merits of TransCanada Corp.’s plan, but instead was forced to make the decision based on the “arbitrary” deadline mandated by GOP provisions in December’s payroll tax cut extension deal.

    Wasn’t that “arbitrary deadline” in fact a requirement to decide whether or not to approve the pipeline in a timely fashion so the administration couldn’t drag this out through the election season? God, these people are idiots!

    On the bright side, the pipeline decision was not blamed specifically on Bush, so that is progress I suppose.

  4. I think we need this little reminder of what we used to be able to do here in this country. The irony is rich, isn’t it?

    I guess the pipeline isn’t a “human project”, whatever that means!

  5. Republicans have to make 2012 a referendum on Obama. With the long term high unemployment, job stagnation, & inflation, all Obama has is mud. People want solutions–not mud. I think Obama is toast.

  6. Obama throws a temper tantrum & destroys real jobs in process; the Keystone Pipeline also would have lowered gas prices, despite Obama’s closing off the Gulf with regulations. He’s cut his nose off the spite his face just to one-up the Republicans. Obama needs a diaper change. Quick, someone call Valeria Jarrett!

  7. I’ve tried for three years now to convice myself that Obama was incandescently incompetent and/or misguided… it’s getting harder to maintain the blinders. I think the man is evil.

    Aside from the fact we’ve told Canada, a friend and ally, to push off and sell their damn oil to China, we’ve dumped a large, job-making infrastructure project that provides tangible value (unlike, say, California’s railroad to nowhere).

    They must be dancing a jig in Riyahd (assuming they dance there) and in Caracas.

  8. Republicans have to make 2012 a referendum on Obama.

    I can see the response already.

    “My opponent is such an awful candidate that even his ‘supporters’ refer to this election as a referendum on my performance rather than a choice of who would make a better President.”

    So if Mitt Romney gets nominated, the best thing you can say about him is “He’s not Barack Obama”? Sounding more and more like John Kerry every day…

  9. Apparently Amy wasn’t around in 1979.

  10. Or in the 2010 election, which Barack Obama insisted was a referendum on his governance.

    That is, until the Republicans took the house in a landslide and nearly recaptured the Senate.
