Support for building the Keystone XL pipeline is now at its highest level ever.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 61% of Likely U.S. Voters now favor building the major oil pipeline from Canada to Texas, while just 27% are opposed. This includes 37% who Strongly Favor the project and 10% who Strongly Oppose it. Thirteen percent (13%) are undecided. Support for building the pipeline is up four points from 57% in January and now has edged above the previous high of 60% found in November 2011 when President Obama first delayed the project for further environmental study.

And then you begin to call me names...

What does my Christianity have to do with my quoting democrats or a liberal newspaper? Do you have no shame?

I didn't call you anything, but rather mentioned comments from your party that disagreed with you. I only want you to understand that the information you're listening to is not accepted by even liberal democrats or the liberal, Washington Post.

bug...if you notice, everything that I posted in my comments was from a liberal democrat or a liberal, Obama supporting, newspaper. Not one comment was from a republican, conservative or a person claiming to be a Christian.

But, you either didn't pay attention or you reallyLand don't care? Your comments on the number of jobs has been debunked, even by the WH. But, I guess if you say it to yourself enough, it sounds good to you. Then again, me, I would love to see 40,000 good paid workers taking home a paycheck, having good benefits rather than one of your boo hoo,s.

Now, what does my Christianity have to

The White House/Obama strategy may work, at least partially. Global warming money will keep coming to buy elections, and maybe the Louisiana voters will be fooled into giving Landrieu another term. The question is whether or not it will be enough for the Democrats to hold the Senate for the last two years of Obama’s time in office. Approval of Keystone XL, the jobs it would create for hard-working Americans and the positive impact it would have on America’s energy independence will have to wait until after 2016.

But there are those who could care less and just say..."Go boo hoo somewhere else."

The Washington Post, Ed Rogers:

"The president of the Laborers’ International Union of North America, Terry O’Sullivan, called the delay “another gutless move” by the administration. We could also dismiss the announcement as just more of the usual dithering from this White House. I don’t think the delay is gutless or dithering, but a more sinister, cynical ploy by this administration to manipulate two groups into continuing to support vulnerable Democrats in an attempt to keep the Senate in 2014."

"By appearing to have not made a decision, President Obama keeps the money pouring in from those on the fringe left — like billionaire Democrat Tom Steyer – who want the Democrats to swear allegiance to their global warming agenda."

But bug says to those who want a job..."Go boo hoo somewhere else."

ladybug has continually said the claim of 40,000 new high paying jobs was not true...so are the democrats now not telling the truth?

Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said the decision amounts to an "indefinite delay" of the project. "This decision is irresponsible, unnecessary and unacceptable," she said. "By making it clear that they will not move the process forward until there is a resolution in a lawsuit in Nebraska, the administration is sending a signal that the small minority who oppose the pipeline can tie up the process in court forever. There are 42,000 jobs, $20 billion in economic activity and North America's energy security at stake."

There is also a Rancher in Nebraska who has a lawsuit going to hold up the project on the grounds a foreign country is taking his property by imm. domain .
