Skip to comments.Carney: Keystone Pipeline Would 'Sacrifice American Sovereignty'
Posted on 04/23/2012 11:37:13 AM PDT by ColdOne
In a press conference on Friday, White House press secretary Jay Carney responded to the recent new Keystone pipeline bill passed by Congress earlier this week, as theWashington Examiner reports:
"It would be preemptively sacrificing American sovereignty" to approve the pipeline, White Hosue [sic] Press Secretary Jay Carney said, because a route for the northern portion of the pipeline has not been established.
"The United States Congress -- a very important body, takes American security and sovereignty very seriously, or should -- is saying that we will, in advance -- blind -- approve a proposal for a pipeline, a proposal for which does not exist," he also said.
The Keystone XL pipeline has undergone 3 years of review, but the State Department refused to grant a permit after pressure from environmentalists demanding the route through Nebraska be changed.
The bill passed through Congress earlier this week with a veto proof majority that included 69 Democrats voting for the newest measure. The latest route running through Nebraska has already been approved by the state legislature and signed by the governor in that state.
Beyond the fact that President Obama is at odds with many House members in his own party, Carneys charge is ludicrous. The northern portion has not been established because the State Department is requiring a completely new review process for the proposed new route. Additionally, aligning with an ally like Canada would not sacrifice American sovereignty as Carney claims.

How much Botox is needed per cubic centimeter to demonstrate 100% correlation to sociopathological lying?
AKA, how many people did the Iranian and Axelrod have to interview to find a better liar?
I keep praying that the Lord will let Tony Snowe walk through the Veil for just a second, and in his ghostly form STRANGLE this nubnutz and THROW him halfway across the room.
I really like that image.
The Lord helps those who help themselves.
After continuing to sacrifice American sovereignty itself, the administration takes a breather to make jokes.
Bomb Canada and just take it you asshat Carney. Whew! what a miracle worker we have in charge!
Careful! 0dumb0sh_t has already spoken for 57 states with 2 more to go! Canada doesn't count. They're too white!
Carney puts that there is no limit to stupidity. Somebody alert the Guinness Book of Records.
Call the Webster dictionary people and tell them to put Carney’s picture next to the word “stupid”.
And it is only going to get worse if Obie is reelected.
Joseph Goebbels is having a ball in Hell with this clown.
You noticed! Just like many of the other 57 states.
Jack Daniels, Coors and Skoal banners were all over the place the last time I attended the Stampede. It was a bucking good time.
Tells you where THEIR allegiances lie.
Did this blithering idiot get passed from the 3rd grade to the 4th grade ???
There are people living in squalor in remote parts of the world who are laughing at the sheer stupidity of this administration.
I thought this administration was all about bowing to multinational concerns? We don’t declare war UNLESS the UN agrees, NATO plans in Libya override the need for Congressional declaration/approval of war; global mandates on AGW, monetary policy, trade, bounty of the sea, small arms, etc. Unilateral US disarmament so we don’t ‘threaten’ the despots. Huge US subsidies for Brazilian oil (since they HATE us), huge US subsidies for Arab Spring (since they HATE us), huge bailouts for EU (since they DESPISE us). First time I’ve heard concern for US interests at all, much less sovereignty.
