    After 7yrs years of thinking about it, Barry officially sticks a fork in KeystoneXL along with thousands of blue collar jobs to satisfy eniormental extremists (not to mention our friends in Canada).
    I guess it's time for Barry to move on to TPP and screw millions more Americans.

    Actually the jobs may have been some 4400 when you include the people who serve food and such. About 2500 construction workers for about 2 years after that only 35 full time workers.
    All the companies right here in the USA fracking wells and going broke because of the market price I'm sure they don't feel too bad about the decision.

    “I’ve studied and studied and studied,” Coleman said on Fox News. Coleman is justified in saying that if you take the time to educate yourself about an issue, you don’t need a Ph.D. to become a trusted source.
    "There is no global warming"
    Why does anyone pay attention to John Coleman, Weather Channel co-founder, on climate change?

    Keystone XL: Jobs and Economic Value
    The construction of the southern leg created a boon for the Oklahoma and Texas economies, injecting $2.1 billion and $3.6 billion, respectively.[2] The states through which the northern leg runs will reap similar economic benefits. Building Keystone XL can be accomplished without the crutch of taxpayer dollars and will result in billions of dollars of tax revenue for the states through which it runs.

    NBC, Huffington, Robert Reich where ever 4400 jobs number came from its obserdly low for a 800 mile pipeline. The 2400 construction number is even more slanted. 3 workers a mile. Sure. Besides how arrogant is it to say only 4400 jobs? I'm sure there are 4400 people forced to take obamamoney right now who'd rather have a job.

    President Dumb**** ****** Obama vetoes pipeline that could of created jobs for several million people between truck drivers, oil drillers, warehouse jobs, EPA, accountants, computer programmers, job planners, construction workers, restaurants, hotels, retail hardware stores for tools, clothing retail stores for work clothes, work boots and such,.... ....etc...etc, but instead chooses to put more people out of work.
    Obama driving down our economy, raising taxes, killing cops, selling out our military, supplying ISIS with weapons, is going to make Donald Trump look like the greatest president this country will ever have. So Obama, keep :censored: up, your making the future presidents look better.

    Only a radical Liberal would think that two years of solid, steady, high pay would be worse than people sitting on their ass drawing welfare or unemployment for two years.

    Ya because two years of jobs is worth a life time of toxic crude being pumped though our country to the gulf. (Like we don't have enough water issues). They just want to use us and Only those on the Radical right think that is OK.

    Didn't think of all jobs created from spills, my bad..

    Oil spills are precisely why shut off valves were created. But the anti-fossil fuel people have no problem with that same oil being spilled during a train derailment. Must be because a Democrat named Warren Buffet owns the railroad.

    How many serious leaks have there been with the Alaskan pipeline? ZERO.

    Most of the Libs shouldn't be commenting on the subject of jobs since they would rather not have jobs and just live in Bernie's jobless utopia.

    Prolly a lot of 'conservatives" pissed the pipe's been buried on their land against their will.
    And the courts side with the pipeline company.
    Maybe they will start voting Democrat

    Really? like ones social or political views shows ones ambition. Because we Libs. believe we all have skin in the game and are not willing to give it all to the rich makes me lazy. You (right wing extremist ) advocate for the rich and against your own best interest and can't even see it..

    Advocating against a pipeline that would help bring cheaper fuel to our country is against your best interest as a truck driver. That rig doent run on sunshine.

    That crude is not for us. They are sending it to the gulf for export not refining.
