Obnoxious Obama Ridicules Republicans For Suggesting Keystone Pipeline Would Create Jobs: “There is no evidence that that’s true”

Focused like a laser on the economy, huh? Really, can this guy be any more belligerent?

President Obama said in an interview that he would evaluate construction of the Keystone XL pipeline on the basis of whether it would significantly contribute carbon to the atmosphere.

But he mocked Republicans’ arguments that the approval of the pipeline, which would carry oil from Canada to the Gulf Coast, would create many jobs in the United States.

“Republicans have said that this would be a big jobs generator,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with The New York Times. “There is no evidence that that’s true. The most realistic estimates are this might create maybe 2,000 jobs during the construction of the pipeline, which might take a year or two, and then after that we’re talking about somewhere between 50 and 100 jobs in an economy of 150 million working people.”

Says the president who’s presided over millions of disappearing jobs.  How’d all your solar projects, including your “phony”  Solyndra scandal, work at at creating jobs? He’s merely stonewalling Keystone because he’s using junk science pushed by his EPA. So can’t we just let him get back to all that real job-creating he’s working on every waking moment while he’s not golfing, vacationing and campaigning?

    Obama’s completely off the mark. The Keystone Pipeline will indeed create tens of thousands of jobs.

    Perhaps one thousand to build and maintain it … and many thousands more to clean up the inevitable environmental disaster when it leaks its toxic sludge into America’s wetlands.

    So, when are they going to modify our cars, home furnaces and generating plants so they can burn environmentalists. They might as well perform a useful service.

    Since I have determined the President is nuts, I’m now ignoring anything he has to say. This is to protect my sanity.

    Right labman57, pipes are awful… we need to send oil by both train and boat (both more likely to spill by amount carried than pipelines).

    Do you have a new magical way to safely transport oil? Or is there some other reason you’re stating that the safest manner possible isn’t acceptable (but more risky methods are still ok)?

    Once we shut down the pipelines we’ll have MORE spillage than before, and the environmentalists will be happy.

    Remember the Exxon-Valdez? That was a good time, right? Environmentalists want to make sure all spills are that large and ecologically damaging.

    When did environmentalists start working to increase the size and number of oil, spills? I must have misunderstood what these people actually want… why is more pollution good?

    “…and many thousands more to clean up the inevitable environmental disaster when it leaks its toxic sludge into America’s wetlands.”

    Indeed, just like all the “environmental disasters” caused by the other 50-60,000 miles of crude oil pipeline already crossing the US.

    Oh, wait.

    What TFG leaves out is that the Keystone Pipeline would hurt one of his best friends, Warren Buffett

    The oil is still being transported, but by Burlington Northern tank cars, owned by Berkshire Hathaway

    Spoken like a true imbecile. Here’s a clue, champ: Unrefined oil is–wait for it–organic. As to “wetlands,” do you have any freaking clue about where this pipeline is supposed to be routed?

    ” Unrefined oil is–wait for it–organic.”

    Yes, but is it free range ? Ha – he has you there.

    “…do you have any freaking clue about where this pipeline is supposed to be routed?”

    Indeed he does, and like that great white-Indian Iron Eyes Cody, he has seen the great swathes of once virgin wetlands in the west and midwest turned into veritable post- apocalyptic wastelands where he can still, having had it seared, seared, into his brain, the plaintive calls of the dead and dying ducks, geese, and Fleexnor’s ptarmigans mired in the toxic sludge, helpless and with nary a fair-trade coffee shop for hundreds and hundreds of miles in any direction.

    Like Iron Eyes, he weeps – I cannot go on.
