TransCanada has resubmitted its Keystone XL pipeline application to the Obama administration, and to the liberal’s and tar sands oil protesters’ dismay, the White House says it might just say yes this time around — or something to that extent.
But first comes the Republican bash-fest:
Jay Carney used the announcement to blast Republicans, asserting, “House Republicans forced a rejection of the company’s earlier application in January, by not allowing sufficient time for important review or even the identification of a complete pipeline route.”
It’s all a matter of political convenience — or, in terms of gas prices, a matter of political in-convenience.
Folks, it’s election time. The good must outweigh the bad. And $5-a-gallon gas prices trump the political repercussions of a few whiny enviro-loonies.
