Bitumen.
Bitumen can't be pumped through pipelines unless it is diluted.
The hydrocarbons utilized to dilute this bitumen are proprietary and not known.
If there would be a leak in a river, these diluents would eventually evaporate & the bitumen would sink & likely flow along the bottoms of the river with sufficient current. In July of 2010, there was a spill in a river in Michigan. The EPA estimated it would take a 2 month cleanup like a similar oil spill, it took 2 1/2 years.
We also don't know how corrosive this diluted bitumen is. This corrosiveness is not only a concern for the pipelines but also the refineries.
So no, this is not the same as a shipment of number 2 fuel oil flowing through a pipeline.
I'm confident our engineers are able to build a safe system, with my $3.60 a gal. fill up today, I think we need it. An estimated 20K jobs sounds good as well.

All of life is a calculated risk. We send men and women into outerspace, a very dangerous proposition, not many question that.

Do you live in one of the affected states? I don't.

That's where you're mistaken, Obama has absolutely nothing to do with our increased oil production, on the contrary he has kept millions of acres of federal land off limits.

But, prove me wrong, show where Obama has anything to do with increasing our production.

It's in spite of Obama, not because of him.

Technological advancments thanks to the free market, not any president ,is responsible for the increased oil production. Oil production from federal land is down, the land obama has control over.

Oil production in the u.s. has increased only because it has become profitable to do so. If it were up to the loony left, oil production would not be profitable.

Lord Obama so loves the poor that he makes more of them.

Like his father, Rainbow Racist Pig Extortionist Jesse Jackson, Sr., he tried to fleece the sheep but got caught sodomizing instead. The Poop doesn't fall far from the Poopchute, as they say.

Note: He's crying. This is because he got caught and not because he's sorry. Recall how Rainbow Racist Pig Extortionist Jesse Jackson, Sr. got caught financing a million dollar home and a hideaway love-child in Southern CA a few years ago? Did you donate to his causes, too? Sucker.

And, today, that same Rainbow Racist Pig Extortionist Jesse Jackson, Sr. calls on the Boy Messiah to use America's private pension funds to help finance a plan to help his "poor" people.

Brother Kwame's raping of Detroit is fast becoming emblematic of the Boy Messiah's activities and that of his Jesse Sharpton crowd.

That's a strange twist, isn't it? Idiots protesting against the actions of their own stupidity and, further, demanding that someone else fix it. Truth is stranger than fiction any day of the European week.

During the Vietnam era many of West Virginia's "of age" young men could not score high enough on the AFQT to be considered for military service. Matter of fact, not just WVA but all areas served by VISTA, E. KY, SW. VA, NE. TN.
One had to be halfway literate to score a 59 on the AFQT.
So now tell us how many of the 58,000 plus dead were from West VA?
Never heard of a single person rejected for service other than the obviously mentally retarded, and not all of them.

Some draft boards with high percentages of college students were so desperate to meet their quotas that anybody was accepted.

<quoted text> What difference does it make ? America produces more oil under President Obama than any other president & is on course to becoming energy independent in Americas short future. See Real Dave, these bitches have to find something to bytch about, & when they're proven to look like idiots, they move on to more ignorance. When you list all of Obama's accomplishments they respond with insults. We have less than 2yrs for the president to finally have things his way (majority in both house & senate). Then you hater can begin to assess his legend, & please dont bring up the 6 months he had a majority in his 1 term. We all know little can happen in 6 months not too mention he was pushing the healthcare bill.

Movement Conservatives Are Far Too Eager to Cheer On Their Politicians
Conor Friedersdorf pours scorn on Jim DeMintís apologia for Ted Cruz:
What a load of premature hype. The leaders of movement conservatism are constantly doing this: They decide on a champion, be it George W. Bush or Rick Perry or Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz, and extol their manifold virtues in the most absurdly exaggerated ways imaginable.
Conorís observation about bad movement conservative habits is correct. There is a tendency to build up new or obscure Republican politicians, invest them with all sorts of qualities that they may or may not possess, and turn them into minor cult figures. Then when the object of the cult comes under criticism for something he does or says, the common response is not to judge the criticism on the merits, but to rally around the cult figure and profess loyalty to him all the more for having endured the attacks. To put it mildly, this is not a healthy way to relate to political leaders. It encourages fawning admiration and blindness to politiciansí weaknesses, and that in turn undermines accountability and enables politicians to promote policies that even their own admirers may find undesirable. Movement conservatives are too eager to cheer on politicians from their own side and donít do nearly enough to hold them accountable. The praise that is being heaped on Cruz in recent weeks is one of the more annoying examples of this.
In this case, DeMintís defense of Cruz is worse than this because he pretends not to understand why Cruz is come under so much scrutiny so early in his first few months in office. The problem that most of his critics have with him isnít that he has become a reliable no vote on many pieces of legislation or even that he opposes the nominations Kerry and Hagel. I think opposing Hagelís nomination on the basis of hard-line ideological litmus tests is extremely foolish and mistaken, but Cruz is entitled to oppose any nominee he wants. It is the manifestly unscrupulous, dishonest manner in which he has chosen to oppose Hagel that grates on people.
If he had simply been asking ďpointed questions,Ē he wouldnít have been singled out for so much criticism because he would have been no different from his Republican colleagues. Instead, he chose to put forward false or misleading information about Hagel, accused him of believing things that he didnít believe by distorting evidence, and generally conducted himself as an obnoxious demagogue angling for the spotlight. Cruz may have promised to be uncompromising, but Iím reasonably sure he didnít promise to be dishonest. DeMintís argument is that Cruz should receive political benefits from his grandstanding but not have to pay any price for it.

Cruz is a threat to the Democrats, hence must be attacked by their puppets at the falsely named blog.
