    Obama will never let it be approved. Everything he has done since the mid-terms has been ultra-partisan base building. In fact, continuing the ban on KXL is nothing. Now that the price of oil is down, if only temporarily, I am looking for a complete national ban on fracking. After all, can Obama let himself be outdone by Cuomo?

      Obama is going full Bulworth. “Interesting stuff happens in the fourth quarter. And I’m looking forward to it.” Scares the dugash out of me.

        Not to worry. You have a Congress which will go into palpitations every time Obama has another idea.

    “After six years of needless delays, a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline looks to be coming due next year.”
    You guys are Pollyannas. You’ve been saying the same damn thing for two+ years now.

    It’s just amazing how far and fast the Dems have come from their working class roots. Gephardt would have been all over this, rolling approval of Keystone into an infrastructure building package with prevailing wage language wrapped around the whole thing. Now all the Dems want to do is stop economic expansion and channel hidden subsidies to health insurance companies through ACA subsidies.

    It’s possible that Keystone will be approved just in time for its proponents to decide the oil price does not justify building it. It’s also possible the approval drags on and on (or is denied) and the proponents don’t care because of the oil price level.
