    NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- The Obama administration rejected a bid to expand the controversial Keystone oil sands pipeline Wednesday, saying the deadline imposed by congress did not leave sufficient time to conduct the necessary review.

    "The rushed and arbitrary deadline insisted on by Congressional Republicans prevented a full assessment of the pipeline's impact, especially the health and safety of the American people, as well as our environment," Obama said in a statement.

    One more nail in the coffin. So much political fodder he's handing to the GOP candidate with this call.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    [sarcasm]It's all the fault of the GOP for setting a deadline[/sarcash]
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

    And he blames the GOP for it. LOL

    President Obama defended himself in a statement saying Republican’s hurried deadline on the issue forced him to make the decision.


    “The rushed and arbitrary deadline insisted on by Congressional Republicans prevented a full assessment of the pipeline’s impact, especially the health and safety of the American people, as well as our environment,” Obama wrote. “I’m disappointed that Republicans in Congress forced this decision, but it does not change my Administration’s commitment to American-made energy that creates jobs and reduces our dependence on oil.

    So instead of making a decision that would have been a boon to this country and it's struggling citizens, he chose to throw a fit and shove it up the asses of the taxpayers.

    It's not a dead issue, just a hastily and poorly executed attempt on forcing it without due diligence by attaching into onto the previous tax break bill.

    Nebraska's Republican Governor Heineman asked that it be placed on hold due to the serious concerns about the safety of the critical Ogallala Aquifer. The states legislature voted 45 to 0, in favor of placing this on hold until confirmation is made that it will be rerouted.

    There's an interesting report on the spectacle @ Cornell.edu While one could argue with some things in that report, it does point out some misinformation going on about this pipeline.
