Reid: “No Keystone for you!”

Can’t pass a budget in three years, is pretty sure the biggest reason to keep the financially insolvent USPS open is senior citizens like getting junk mail and wants the government paying your tax dollars to keep cowboy poetry alive, Harry Reid is a poster boy for the arguments against seniority as a means of picking leaders. 

But when it comes to screwing over the best interests of the United State, well, you can definitely count on Harry to be on the side of those doing the screwing.

Senate Democrats will hold firm and reject House Republican demands to include approval of the Keystone oil pipeline in transportation funding legislation, their leader said Tuesday.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said he would not in any way help Republicans move Keystone approval across the finish line.

“Personally, I’m not — I’m not one of the conferees — but personally I think Keystone is a program that we’re not going, that I am not going to help in any way I can,” Reid told reporters. “The president feels that way. I do, too.”

I’m sure the president does indeed feel the way Reid does.

Which should tell you all you need to know about where the President’s priorities are as well.

  • But WAIT…!!! Wasn’t Pres. Pond-Scum all Keystoned just DAYS ago, as he got out in front of cameras an’ some pipe-ish looking stuff…???? Huh. Someone connected to reality would have to say that was half the Alinsky “patented head-fake” contradiction. BTW, when is someone going to investigate his violationsssssss of campaign laws with all these patently campaigning jogs?

  • “that I am not going to help in any way I can” Translation from the Erbian please? I’m pretty sure I can read that in two mutually contradictory ways.

  • First he said “,,, we’re not going, (to help)” I think he slipped and told them that the dems as a collective were not going to help in any way. But then that has been obvious for months hasn’t it. When Obama and the dems say they have an “all of the above” energy policy they mean as long as it does not include oil, coal or nuclear power.

    • @myweeklycrime So I should wander into the EPA offices in DC, grab the first 500 parasites that I find, drop ship them into NoKo as a way to encourage the others to understand the US Constitution? Works for me!

  • Democrats have been accusing Republicans of being the party of No for a few years now. Someone finally realized they were being inconsistent, as the liberal standard is accuse their opponents of whatever tactic the Left was actually using (preventing legal voting, racism, ruining heath care, illegal military action, intentionally damaging the economy, etc). Reid’s actions were a necessary and importatnt step.

  • Bruce,
     
    It’s disheartening to hear Congressional leaders voice opposition to a true shovel-ready project that would secure our fuels from a reliable, friendly neighbor and create jobs throughout the United States. Unfortunately, Keystone XL opponents have had trouble separating fact from fiction (and even fantasy). I took on some of their phony rhetoric in this new post. Take a look when you have a chance: http://energytomorrow.org/blog/rhetorical-engagement-on-the-keystone-xl-pipeline/#/type/all

  • We keep going back and forth on this issue. This continuing volley between yes and no on the Keystone Pipeline is an extreme nuisance not just for government, but for TransCanada and for people who need jobs! What we need to realize is that Keystone solves the problems of jobs and labor that we have been facing for a while(http://eng.am/xmoh86). Not only that, we should be using this opportunity to get ourselves off of oil from more hostile regions. We need this project so we can start making a recovery. Why the continued wait?
