Why did President Obama delay the TransCanada XL pipeline decision to 2013. The pipeline slated to cross through Nebraska was to be approved and construction starting in 2012. Environmentalist mounted a spirited attack to thwart a project that would bring vast supplies of oil from Canada and provide 55,000 US jobs.
Politics 101 suggests Obama is a true politician incapable of making tough decisions. Did it not occur to anyone that there are pipelines running through Nebraska already? Did it not occur to anyone that Obama is buying time and will approve it after the election. Did it not occur to anyone that Obama already stated the need for a dependable oil supply? Did it not occur to anyone that Obama is desperately looking for Jobs creation projects.
