You Got it Wrong, Mr. President

Buzzy is at the Table

Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Monday, November 9, 2015. Our adventurous friend, Fly Buzzy, is with me at the breakfast table. Buzzy was sitting on President Obama's nose when the president announced his rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline. He tried to annoy the president as much as possible, but in the end it was Buzzy and most of the nation that ended up distressed. The Keystone pipeline was good for America. Rejecting it, contrary to President Obama's belief, was not in our national interest. Please join Buzzy and me for breakfast this morning. Buzzy is whipping up a batch of cornbread and homemade strawberry jam. I will be serving Irish coffees. We hope to see you soon.

The Same Old Song

We've heard this drumbeat before, and it's getting old. According to President Obama, the biggest threat to our nation today is climate change. Forget about ISIS, because a heat wave will surely doom us faster than any terror organization. After a record breaking 2, 604 days the president announced his rejection of the pipeline. He told the nation that constructing the pipeline would not serve the national interest of the United States. Ruling by executive order doesn't serve our interests either, but that has not stopped the president when it comes to his mission to "change" our nation forever. He went on to tell the country that the United States is a global leader in the fight against climate change. I have a news flash, Mr. President. The United States is no longer a global leader in any way, shape or form. You may be the only person who doesn't know that, though judging from your prior statements, you don't really believe we should be leading anything. After all, we are no better than any other country out there. You have made that point abundantly clear over the years.

It Would Have Been Great

Apparently, keeping our supply of oil stable and safe is not a priority with this administration. The doomed pipeline would have carried huge amounts of crude oil to our nation from a friendly Canada. The result would have been lower prices for American consumers. President Obama said prices wouldn't be lower, so that's that. The flow of that oil would be accomplished safely, a factor that impacts all of us, but especially people living near the pipeline. It is a fact that pipelines offer the safest means of transporting oil. President Obama doesn't agree, so that's that! The environmental impact of the pipeline has undergone countless reviews. It has been determined that building the pipeline would have posed a minimal risk to our environment. President Obama disagreed, so that's that! We were told by the president that construction of the pipeline would do nothing for the economy. Really? The pipeline would have created tens of thousands of construction jobs. President Obama disagreed, so that's that!

The People Disagree

The pipeline project was a very popular idea in America. President Obama and his cronies wanted to kill it, but a majority of the nation wanted to see it become a reality. Congress made it clear to President Obama that they approved of the project. What the America people want is of no interest to this president and his administration. I can't recall a single time that our interests entered into his idea of governing. Rabid environmental activists have his ear. We just get a cold shoulder and a rejection. The decision to kill the pipeline was politics at its ugly worst. The final ruling wasn't based on science or the interests of our nation. Clearly, construction of the pipeline would have done wonders for our economy without so much as disturbing a hair on the head of the environment. President Obama was bowing before the interests of a few people. Studies do not support any of the president's assertions, but then this administration was never inclined to let the truth stand in its way. President Obama disagrees with the scientists, the economists and the America people, so that's that!

Buzzy's Song

Fly me to the moon

And let me live where I am free

Life down here is hard

I think we're up a tree!

Good Morning Patti - My thoughts on this is that Obama promised one of his handlers that he would stop the Keystone pipeline, and he did.

I believe one of his buddies owns the railroad that currently hauls the oil out of Canada. If we build the pipeline we no longer need the railroad. I'm also sure this promise to stop the pipeline came with a very high price tag.

Most of us are smart enough to know this decision had nothing to do with the environment or global warming. It is all about money for a few of Obama's friends and most likely for Obama himself.

Life under a dictator is not a good life as we have now learned. And there is slightly over a year left to cause even more damage to our country. It will take decades to undo the damage that has been done by this President.

Good Morning Mike,

I wonder just how much more damage we can withstand under this dictatorship. Obama has managed to unravel decades of relationships with the rest of the world. Their disregard for us is the end result. This project would have been good for America. Thanks for the info about his friend an the railroad. The pieces of the puzzle are coming together and it is a disturbing view. See you at the Inn.

Pop, to answer your question about how much more damage we can stand.....one year, my friend. This country is stronger than any one politician. We've proven it in the past and we'll continue to prove it. Spur on those who believe as you do; get a movement started and make it huge....steamroll those you disagree with.....and I'll applaud your efforts and your patriotism.

I wonder if the tree hugger's know that the oil they hate so much will still be transported by train rather than pipeline. I believe train accidents have led to many more serious oil spills than any pipeline incident. My guess is they really believe they won this battle with Obama's help and would vote for him again if they could.

Not to mention, doing it Obama's way actually leaves a larger carbon footprint, whereas the Keystone Pipeline would have done the opposite---not that Obama really cares what really happens to "the environment" so long as he provides amply for his billionaire friends and leaves a so-called "legacy."

Is this country stronger than any one politician? Billy I'd have to agree with your statement, that it is, but is that really the threat at hand?

I'd say this country IS even stronger than a cabal of politicians which is what the Democrat party has become but

the lesson to be learned here is:

Is this country stronger than it's electorate when the electorate has been poisoned by it's education system, political system and foreign governments, outside influences? This next election will provide the answer.

When the Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers (BO) says in Friday's speech "What has increased America’s energy security is our strategy over the past several years to reduce our reliance on dirty fossil fuels from unstable parts of the world." tell me how the pipeline in question doesn't reduce the risk to our security which he just cited Friday. Is Canada an "unstable part of the world?" He'll say anything without even knowing what he is saying, just throwing stuff at the wall of his support hoping it will stick!

The man is a train wreck.

Hillary is rejecting it too; the only way to get it through is with a republican president and we need to listen to those closely too. Only an idiot would reject it. Oh it is much better they think to have oil spills everywhere; that is real good for our environment!

If Obama doesn't concoct a way to stay in office I will be very surprised unless he can set up a way to control after he is gone. Through Hillary could be that way. Hard to tell what all they have on each other but clearly neither care about America!

Our ideological leader wanted to leave a legacy and he has succeeded: Obamacare which is a misbegotten farce; brazen executive orders right and left to satisfy the puppet masters; and a title he will long carry: 'Worst President Ever!'

Good Morning tsadjatko,

You bet Obama is a train wreck and we are the collateral damage. The people pulling his strings and giving him his marching orders got more than they could have hoped for. when they pushed him into the Oval Office. See you at the Inn.

Good Morning Jackie,

People like Obama and Hillary are in bed with people like Soros. They march to his tune and others equally as horrible. The American people don't stand a chance. I can't get over the damage this man and his fellow fools have foisted upon our nation. The saddest part for me is that we are raising a generation of idiots who don't believe in free speech or any of the rights and privileges we fought so hard for. If we don't elect someone with a brain and a heart, we will never recover. See you at the Inn. It exists only in our imagination, but it's a great and safe place to be.

Good Morning derby,

The pathetic part is that he and his followers believe just the opposite. We really don't have our act together in this country. College students believe in mob rule. They don't allow for opinions that differ from theirs and they are unbelievably lacking in the brains department. The Dems are now a cult rather than a political party and the media is infested with biased fools who no longer give a damn about the truth or the facts. We must begin to turn things around with this next election, or we are doomed. See you at the Inn.

Not having the pipeline benefits his handlers, warren Buffet and George Soros. Screw the people.

Please don't forget that many who are fighting against the Keystone Pipeline were led to believe this will be the first and only oil pipeline in the country. If they looked at a map of all the existing pipelines that crisscross this country they would most likely have heart attacks.

Of course most protesters are from the group that believe that facts just make things more complicated.

Little do they know they were setup and used by those who will profit the most from not allowing this pipeline to be built. But now they are free to move on and join the global warming crowd where they will live happily ever after.

Good Morning Mike,

It is easy to fool people who have no real interest into looking into anything on their own. This is what people like Obama are counting on, and the public has come through big time. See you at the Inn.

Pop and Buzzy,

The best we could have hoped for was for Obama to ignore the issue until he rides off into the sunset but no such luck. I am thankful that the shale oil and gas that has been developed during his "reign" has been on private land so he couldn't stop it.

Good Morning Tom,

I'm surprised he didn't stop it by Executive Order. That's how he operates, and the fact that he gets away with it falls right at the door of Congress. See you at the Inn.
