..."It doesn't surprise me but it's again -- the president's focused more on the next election than on the next generation.
"Getting this country independent of foreign sources of crude from countries that are not our friends is really problematic. So this Canadian oil, there's a possibility we could lose it to China with that decision so I hope Americans will really become unhinged with that decision because it is a really bad decision for our country, for energy independence and sends a horrible message at a time that were headed to $4 and $5 oil or excuse me $4 or $5 gasoline, to have a neighbor who's willing to sell us crude that is available."

I wish people would wake up and realize that Perry is the candidate we should be rallying around. This is exactly what Perry needs to continue doing. Attack obama. Rise above the fray of the other infighting. Come across as the statesman and three term governor that he is.
I truly believe that. It’s a vast left wing conspiracy.
If Perry could somehow move past Santorum in SC, he would have a clear road ahead.
I just heard Hannity say that Rick Perry is going to be on his radio show “later” and that Karl Rove also will be on today to help “sort it all out”......... as in, kick Perry in the balls again. Nice going Sean. Nice going Karl. [scorn ahead of their Hannity-Rove act that isn’t fooling anyone]
Hannity is a worthless suckup.
Yes. He certainly is — sad he’s lost his roots.
I agree with all you just said.
Rick Perry would never ever stop this pipeline. He has spokenn of how important drilling is in his plans. Perry would fix everything if people would just wake up and see he is the only conservative to vote for.
Perry needs to call a press conference and blast Obama. He needs to do something to get attention on this issue and it could create the surge he needs!
Perry is the only Washington outsider I trust to reduce the size and intrusion of big government!
If he was president, Perry would have approved the pipeline in a heartbeat!
“The problem is that Romney is beginning to pull away in polls among Republican primary voters...
He appears to be strengthening. The non Romneys appear to be weakening...whether individually or as a group.”
I can’t get my mind around it. Early on in the campaign season, I wasn’t even concerned about Romney because I was certain there was no chance he would take the South. I just don’t understand what’s happening.
” Obama and Romney — “That plant kills people!”
Dear God. I felt my stomach turn over watching that.
Are conservatives INSANE??
He also needs to bring the fact the Hilary was the one that advised Obama under the guise that the State Dept. did not have enough time to review the security issues.
How long has this Pipeline been in the works? How many times/reasons has it been stalled for. The real security issue is that we be able to have oil supplied to us from a close ally, rather than shipping it off to China.
We need to gain energy independence. Once again, Iran has proved that this week. In addition, there are 20,000 jobs at stake here. It is not just the direct jobs, but the overall increase of business to those that provide services and products needed to support this venture.
To not jump on this opportunity is sheer stupidity. It is a pressing and vital news story that will probably get buried with the politics of the day. I trust Governor Perry will speak loudly and clearly of this and the vital interest it has to our country.
Today I have heard that Newt made a big surge, post debate.
That Insider Advantage has him back in the lead in SC, whereas Romney had been leading and pulling away.
He’s not my candidate but at least, if true, it’s bad news for Romney and his debate performance.
I can’t understand, either...what were people thinking, that caused Romney to surge in the South, of all places?
The idea that Keystone safety hasn’t been studied is bull — it’s been studied longer than any — for THREE years.
It was brought up last evening on the news that Obama gave the unions control of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and the knife to Keystone as a gift to Environmentalists.
