You reap what you sow, Chuck.

You blocked the pipeline through the US and now you complain about a deal between two foreign countries in that same industry. It's really unseemly to hold the same hand out that you just used for slapping!

I just can't get over the monumental stupidity of the Obama administration and of democrats in general. They b!tch about outsourcing and not being able to invest overseas in the same breath and then throw away bargaining power with the pipeline fiasco.

Russia talking to Cuba about building a base on the island.

60 miles from FL!

Obama has given up the Caribbean basin.

China's building roads, buildings in the Caribbean.

And we're spending our money in the Middle East instead of paying attention and FOCUSING on OUR nearby neighbors..Mexico, Central and South American and the Caribbean.

It's the asian sea, Africa and the Middle East before OUR NEAREST "neighbors" who have a DIRECT impact on OUR country.

Palin is not in any office and has no control over the pipeline, clown.

Guess who does, and his initials are BO!

Both Obama/Clinton/The rich has focused on Asia since 1990's. The previous interventions in Latin America were military or conducting Coup d'Etat. Since the 50's, the US has tried intervention in Asia. And then Reagan send Marines to Lebanon and they got fried in 1983.

I don't think we should be telling a Canadian company with whom they can do business! This is not a sensitive technology that will harm US security interests. The Chinese are doing this to learn the technology of fracking and not to control supplies!

Any Colorado condolences coming from the lord marshal b. h. obama are spurious. How is it possible for anyone to critique the actions of james holmes when their mentor for years was the infamous terrorist bill ayers? I mean the actions of bill ayers and james holmes are on the same page...only exception, bill ayers has a mile long criminal rap sheet.
America should question b. h. obama's judgment about his long term close association with bill ayers because when it comes to friends, associates and mentors b. h. obama’s judgment is a disgrace and should disqualify him for making any condolences concerning Colorado, etc.
After all b. h. obama's association with bill ayers would have prevented him from ever holding any high level security position especially in the White House but thanks to voting fools he got a pass he did not deserve.

Russia (USSR) has probably had a hand in things since the revolution. I grew up with Soviet missiles pointed at us.:)
