State Department: sorry, Mr. President. The Keystone Pipeline can go ahead.

The Obama administration is rapidly running out of wiggle room on the Keystone pipeline:


The State Department’s long-awaited environmental report on the Keystone XL pipeline leaves President Barack Obama with no real scientific reason to reject the nation’s most fiercely debated energy project.


The sprawling 2,000-page report, released late Friday afternoon, doesn’t issue a clear yea or nay on a sprawling section of pipeline that would traverse from western Canada to Oklahoma. But the report’s key takeaways — including a conclusion that the project would have “no significant impacts to most resources along the proposed Project route” — Obama may have been hemmed in by his own State Department experts.

*If Barack Obama can mix his classical references, then so can I. And, to be fair: “Jedi Mind Meld” is on the same level of silliness as, say, “misunderestimated.” Although, when it comes to being a President, Barack Obama on his best day can’t match George W Bush on his worst. Scissors-32x32.png
