Presidential Politics, Petroleum and Pandering

“I have seen hypocrisy that was so artful that it was good judgment to be deceived by it.” - Josh Billings
If your house were on fire, President Barack Obama is the civil servant who would insist the firemen get the hose to your house immediately and he would make sure it happened. Then, as he posed for pictures, he would refuse to allow anyone to attach the hose to a water hydrant as your home went up in flames.

Essentially this is what President Obama is doing with the Keystone XL Pipeline. The oil pipeline would be capable of pumping 700,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada into the United States if it were attached to a supply of oil. President Obama is all for building the oil pipeline, he just doesn't want it delivering any oil.

President Barack Obama is following the trail hewed by former President Bill Clinton: Audacious shamelessness and hypocrisy so dense that gamma rays find it impenetrable. Which makes the hypocrisy only slightly less dense than those who still support the man who would be President - if only everything weren't still George Bush's fault.
