The long-delayed Keystone XL oil pipeline cleared a major hurdle Friday as the State Department raised no major environmental objections to the controversial pipeline from Canada through the heart of the U.S.
Republicans and some oil- and gas-producing states cheered, but the report further rankled environmentalists already at odds with President Barack Obama.
Obama is afraid to buck environmentalists because of their votes and donations.
Now that the enviro-weenies seem to be getting on board will the Keystone XL pipeline finally become a reality?
If Obama still nixes the pipeline it may be because he does not want want to send less oil money to his friends the Mid-East.
Democrat congressman Henry Waxman (shown in the photos below) has announced that he won't seek reelection this November.
Waxman was one of the major architects of ObamaCare.
After 40 years in the House Mr. Waxman is a prime example of why we need term limits.
Waxman is the fourth top Democrat on a House committee who has either called it quits or opted to run for another office, and a fifth, House Agriculture Committee Ranking Member Collin Peterson (D-Minn.), said this week that he's still weighing his options.
In other words, about 20 percent of the people who stand to become chairmen if Democrats re-take the House are choosing not to stick around (there are 20 standing committees in the House), and possibly 25 percent, if Peterson calls it quits.
Does this mean the Democrats aren't really counting on re-taking the House in 2014? ObamaCare could easily sink the chances in November.
