Yeah, compromise. Repubs want one thing and the Dems want another. Politics at work.

Democrats want to create jobs for Americans and the Republican want to build a pipeline for foreigners.

I didn't realize you were a liberal.
I'm shocked that you would suggest the US should nationalize the petroleum industry.
doesn't that border on socialism?

Everytime we fill up at $4, plus, we will remember all the Democrats that voted against the Keystone pipeline, and we will vote them out. That is why the Republicans keep bringing this up, to remind us why we have higher gas prices then when Presidet Bush was President. Believe me, those Democrats up for re election, and there are 23 of them, will vote with the Republicans,

You're so fuckng stupid.... If DemocRATS (and Obama) cared about jobs, they would have done something about unemployment when they controlled BOTH the House and the Senate. DemocRATS had a filabuster proof majority.....did they put through 1 (just one)'jobs' bill??????? FUK NO
Obama didn't agree to the pipeline so Warren Buffett can make a few more million. You're PATHETIC

Vote it down, clear it out, prevent it, stall it, slow it, sabotage it if you have to. We're not running damned Canadian tar sands crap across our country so big Oil can profit from it.

Quit lying, boy. We turned around the Bush Job Loss situation almost as soon as Obama took office, and have been ADDING jobs for months and months.

Want the recovery to speed up? Tell your reTHUGlican Congressbuddies to STOP OBSTRUCTING THE RECOVERY.

Seriously, shithead. You're not REALLY this stupid, are you?

Gas is back up to $4.09. Tomorrow it will go up for the week end. It is an unending battle. Obama has contributed to the high price of gas by stymieing U S Production, and not securing overseas Production.He wants to replace oil imports by 1/3 and increase production of biofuels. That won't work. Not ever. Time to send him, and his corrupt buddies back to Chicago.

Hard t'unnerstand why they aren't crazy about a few temporary jobs, bad oil streaming across our wild lands, oil being sold abroad for oil company profit, American energy prices RISING.

If you weren't stupid, you'd know that U.S. oil production is UP markedly, and that we're also selling more oil and oil products abroad than at any time since the post-WWII years.

You're utterly corrupt, dishonest, and stupid, though. Hopeless.
