Most Americans want Keystone, but does Obama care?

Pew Research Center’s new poll encouraged the gas price-conscious with its headline, “Keystone XL Pipeline Draws Broad Support,” and a score box showing 63 percent supporting and only 23 percent opposing the pipeline that would transport oil from Canada’s Alberta oil sands through the Plains states to refineries in Texas.

However, the report quickly deflated that optimism with a terse note identifying the minority: “except among liberals.” We have seen time and again that the liberal 23 percent can be a majority to executive-order-wielding President Obama.

As his administration approaches a decision, lame-duck politics says he could go either way — even with his own State Department’s favorable environmental impact report on the XL’s construction permit.

And even with Alberta Premier Alison Redford saying that an Obama rejection would damage U.S.-Canada relations. “Canada relies on the U.S. for 97 percent of its energy exports,” Redford said, and “sees the new pipeline as critical to its economic well-being.”

  1. Don Rushing says:

    I think that Obama will continue to side with the extreme environmentalists wackos that hate the use of any "fossil fuels" and will continue to support the "all of the above" wind mills and solar power (which is a dream
    of the liberals/progressives/socialist/Marxist/communists) that will destroy the American way of life.

  2. He has worked so hard to get us to this point, why would he approve something that could reverse the direction of his hard work?

  3. WHy should we care aboout what Obscumbo wants to support? He is a wacko commie illegal alien wh needs to be escorted out of the white house and straight to a high security prison. All his hard work hardly works – but it sure is expensive and only fills the pockets of his cronies jala — I can tell you are not a tax payer
    Only a moron would believe or post something as naive as your post
