Obama appears to think that Americans are stupid. He’s photo-opping today, down in Cushing Oklahoma, to announce that he will prioritize authorization of the southern half of the Keystone pipeline.
Exactly what good is half of the pipeline to Trans Canada can be left up to the Democrats. Only they could come up with a reason why the company would bother to invest in half of the pipeline with no guarantee that they would be allowed to complete it.
Note: Trans Canada has not yet applied to build the Southern leg of the Keystone pipeline and the northern section is being blocked by “concerns” about aquifers below the construction site in Nebraska.
