    "Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Sunday that he was looking at exporting more oil to China after the United States delayed a decision on a controversial pipeline.

    President Barack Obama's administration last week put off a decision on Keystone XL project after a major protest campaign by environmentalists, who say the pipeline would be prone to accidents and worsen climate change."

    "Money talks and bullshit walks" is appropriate in this case I would think.

    The Keystone XL pipeline had nothing to do with "climate change".

    The selected route through the Ogalala aquifer was the environmental issue. There were alternate and acceptable routes available.

    The oil was to go to Gulf refineries primarily for export to Europe, not for US consumption, they may as well sell it to China.

    If Canada wants to develop its' oil industry they can build their own refineries.

    In my final analysis, Obummer has not made one single decision with any merit since being elected. Just another case of voting present....

    TC, They are, at least in St. John, New Brunswick. Shameful what's going on in this country of ours.

    Where do you think the oil from the Alaskan pipeline goes to? The pipeline was paid for with our tax dollars and then they sell the oil to Japan supposably because of the type of crude it was. Jackie B.

    This inability to make a decision & stalling by president step and fetch pisses off our closest ally and neighbor and shoots a potential 20,000 new jobs right in the ass.

    Apparently no injury to the American people & economy is too great to pass up.
