Because Obama lied when he said during the campaign that he would support loan guarantees for the ACP. Let's do ourselves a favor and see it like it is and tell it like it is. He is a liberal liberal Dem and as such is beholden for votes to radical "environmentalist" (really Luddite) special-interest groups. He knows he will lose their political support if they perceive him doing anything even remotely conceived as being helpful to nuclear energy. IOW, Obama cares more about votes than doing the right thing (keeping his promise). In my book, that is pretty despicable. But, nothing that I don't expect.
A "second chance" is simply stall ball, kicking the can down the road, voting "present" when you should be showing leadership and making a decision and standing by it. Cowardice, but any other name. Playing for time, running out the clock gives Obama political cover, a chance to save face, because he can then say either "see, I gave them time, they did better, so I can approve the guarantee", or, "well, we tried, but they didn't cut it, so I can't approve the guarantee". Well, I'm smart enough to see through that crap. Either Obama keeps his promise to support the project, or he shuts his ugly yap about it.
BTW, people are still going to be losing their jobs during this interregnum. Tell people on unemployment how great you think Obama is when his DOE has cost them their jobs.

Barack Hussein Obama sure is going to provide this country a change alright!! Hope all you who voted for him like this change and support of foreign countries. This will be the demise of the mighty USA.
Do you think John Sidney McCain would have us in a better position on the world stage? Obama has the youth and energy to travel and make peace with the world.

My loan was rejected. Credit Sudhaar was my choice. Initially they were slow. But their counsellors were able to handle all my queries. I will give Credit Sudhaar a positive review

I had no idea my credit was bad. The guys at Credit Sudhaar analysed my report. The process took some time but my credit was restored, enhanced and protected. I have no reason for complaints.
