Obama Promises Lower Gas Prices and Defends Keystone XL Decision
By Tara Dodrill | Yahoo! Contributor Network – Fri, Mar 23, 2012

President Obama signed an executive order earlier this week approving the Keystone XL pipeline connecting Cushing, Okla., to the Texas Gulf Coast, National Public Radio reports. Obama concluded his four-state energy tour at Ohio State University in Columbus on Thursday. While in Ohio, Obama toured an experimental "high-tech" automotive facility and viewed the "fasted electric car in the world," the Buckeye Bullet 2, according to the Columbus Dispatch. The automotive research center has garnered millions in federal funding for fuel-cell and hybrid propulsion research.

Here are some facts about Obama's energy tour and the Keystone XL pipeline:

**SNIP**

* President Obama stated during the energy tour that his plan to increase fuel efficiency standards to 55 miles per gallon by 2025. Obama also remarked that the plan will help consumers when filling up at the pump and aid in the conservation of oil, the AP reports.

“President Obama stated during the energy tour that his plan to increase fuel efficiency standards to 55 miles per gallon by 2025.”

Who will administer this?

1) the Tooth Fairy

2) The Milage God

3) The Great Pumpkin

4) All of the above

Hey little child Marxist? This is 2012, not 2025....just so you know, little boy.

I hear they are channeling Sadi Carnot to plead for revocation of the Second Law.

Zero knows he can "promise" anything, knowing the DNC talking points printers and broadcasters, I mean the "news" media, will never hold him to it. In fact, they will blame his failure to fulfill his "promise" on the Republicans.

So go ahead, Zero. Make your promises. Only the stupid will believe them.

Obama's approval was not required for that stretch of popeline. He must have Dem Politicians pleading with him....PLEEZ...you're scr***** us as well as the people...none ofd us will get elected.

In a couple of words: "He blinked".

I could promise lower gas prices.
Come September, the price of gas will be lower due to seasonal adjustment.
Obie promising lower gas prices is like promising the Sun will rise tomorrow.

Obama lives in a green fantasy land. In the real world the laws of physics are obeyed. Wind, solar algae etc are simply not dense enough to power a modern industrial society. His administration’s war on carbon energy sources is causing real misery and unemployment. Yet the ideologues at EPA and Dept of Energy will never suffer. If they are thrown out of office, they will simply return to their tenured positions at tax supported universities or tax shielded foundations. Too bad they don’t experience the real consequences of their bizarre policies.

I could lower gas prices by Monday morning:

1. End "boutique blending".

2. Approve the Keystone XL from Hardisty, Alberta to Cushing, Oklahoma.

3. Approve every drilling permit and lease now applied for on federal lands.

4. Invite more drilling permits on federal lands.

5. Close the EPA.

That’s the “southgern leg” of that entire pipeline, which was scheduled to go into construction in June, anyway.

http://blog.heritage.org/2012/03/22/obamas-rush-to-approve-keystone-segment-wont-speed-construction/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

He has no authority to approve it, since it’s on US property. He only has approval of the “northern leg” of the pipeline, 50ft of which crosses into Canada.

http://thehill.com/blogs/e2-wire/e2-wire/217607-obama-says-hes-added-enough-pipeline-to-encircle-earth-and-then-some-defends-position-on-keystone-pipeline

Without the “northern leg”, the “southern leg” of the Keystone XL Pipeline is like an unconnected garden hose which no one has turned-on the spigot for: useless. Nothing’s going to flow from Canada’s shale deposits.

FUB0! LIAR!!

What was it Obama said about Politicians saying they could and would lower gas prices? He said they were being mendacious or words to that affect......so what’s he saying here....Mr. Obama, you can’t have it both ways.........

From Obama’s ‘08 campaign:

“Words, just words; just speeches.”

I won’t hold my breath for gas prices to fall or a reversal of his Keystone XL pipeline decision.

But, unlike his manipulation of unemployment statistics, how will he manage to make gas prices at stations across the country look lower than they actually are??

Obama Promises...

If his lips are flapping, you can be sure he's lying.

I'm still waiting for him to cause the rise of the oceans began to slow, and our planet to begin to heal.

They just don't make messiahs and prophets like they used to...

By all means run pipeline from Oklahoma to Texas. Oklahoma has a fair amt. of rigs in play already.

Hopefully, we’ll have a new kid on the block in November who will approve, if approval is needed, Oklahoma to Canada Interior pipeline.

Can Canada and America companies get the pipelines in motion and when Obama is out of office, run the small piece needed to connect Canada and America?

It would be like a festival. “The Connecting of the Pipeline”.

People can have annual parties celebrating “The Great Connection”.

We can have costumes and great food! Everyone gets the day off from work to celebrate!
