In the title I’m referring of course to Bill Clinton’s support for the construction of the Keystone Pipeline. Why, what did you think I was talking about?

“One of the most amazing things to me about this Keystone pipeline deal is that they ever filed that route in the first place since they could’ve gone around the Nebraska Sandhills and avoided most of the dangers, no matter how imagined, to the Ogallala [aquifer] with a different route, which I presume we’ll get now, because the extra cost of running is infinitesimal compared to the revenue that will be generated over a long period of time,” he said.

“So, I think we should embrace it and develop a stakeholder-driven system of high standards for doing the work,” Clinton added.

With gas prices what they are and not expected to get any lower anytime soon, Clinton’s trying to give Obama a nickel’s worth of free advice:


*****

What’s interesting about Clinton’s support for Keystone is that it’s the State Department that has to sign off on the full project, and Bubba is married to the Secretary of State. That means that if Bill wants to help Obama get re-elected, all he’s got to do is wake up in the morning, whisper his opinion into his lady’s ear, and then that lady can call Hillary and finally get the pipeline underway.

    Ah yes, the pipeline …. and the grapevine. Hillary will eventually get the message !

    RE: the second pic; Billy Jeff demonstrating how oil flows thru the pipeline, I`m reminded of Crocodile Dundee rendering 1st aid to the reporter in the outback who`d suffered an embarrassing scratch to her south-side, caught by the aborigine who replied, "Oh, is that what you were doing ?"

    How could we have forgotten that? The last time he was that red faced and hyperventilating was…

    So sick & tired (TM) of these latest renditions of Prog-lite. Realizing there are a handful ( of surprisingly vocal! ) Americans remaining mucking up the works, everyone in the Professional Left is scrambling to come off as sensible. That there's even a 'center' to come back to?

    Doug – that caption and the picture of Slick Willy has to be one of your top 10 posts! Made the start of my day!

    And of course Hitlerry disagrees with Slick Willy. Would love to be a fly on the wall in that domesticated hell hole just for sh!ts and giggles. They are quite the pair.

    It's been noted that we haven't had a new oil refinery built in many, many years and all the oil refineries seem to be along the gulf coast which is hurricane prone, (well, except for CA which sure explains why their gas is so high). So I wonder what the cost difference is in building a refinery along the northern border versus the pipeline to the Gulf coast? Seems to me you could expand production with modern technology and eliminate all that risk to all that land between Canada and the Gulf. Just a thought.

    [...] Heh. Good one, Doug. I didn’t include the “laying pipe” gag; you’ll just have to click over and see that one for yourself. [...]

    The Administration has taken important steps to ensure that the work requirement is retained and that waivers will be granted only if a state can demonstrate that more people will be moved into work under its new approach.
