Clinton announces Keystone XL pipeline opposition, sides with environmentalists over unions

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday announced her opposition to the Keystone XL oil pipeline, ending months of hedging on the issue.

Mrs. Clinton said she decided to oppose the pipeline because it had become a distraction from advancing a climate change agenda.

“I oppose it because I don’t think it is in the best interest of what we need to do to fight climate change,” Mrs. Clinton said at a campaign event at an elementary school in Des Moines, Iowa.

    I like seeing Hillary Clinton as much as I like seeing Obama. I’d rather that they were both on another Planet.

    This government is so set on purchasing foreign oil. They don’t want to create jobs in our country. They don’t want change from what we already have. Watch what happens to this inventor when he demonstrates a new type of fuel for our vehicles. New videos will start automatically. Follow to the end. There are three short videos.

      This oil is foreign oil, Canada is a foreign country. We create more jobs drilling for oil here instead of buying it from Canada.

        Yes it is foreign oil, but Canada doesn’t want to kill us like the middle east does. Also, Obama doesn’t want to drill in our country. He would rather support his middle eastern kings that he bows to all the time…

        1. bobnstuff says:

          If Obama doesn’t want drilling why is he selling all those leases and why are we now talking about exporting oil?
          We have drillers cutting back on production because a glut of oil.

    This confirms, to me, that this lady is NOT a committed force to create JOBS in America and NOT a committed force to create energy independence for the USA!!!!…NOT a good fit for potus!!!!!

  • TexRancher says:

    No surprise here. The Socialists (corrupted former democrats) will oppose anything that helps this country to be independent on hostile foreign oil! Never mind the U.S. jobs that would be created!

    Saul Alinsky and George Soros would be so proud of Hillary and they are her real heros!

      Ya to hell with the land and the largest aquifer in the United States.
      We are ALREADY exporting oil , the only think this pipeline doe is reduces the cost of transportation for the oil companies that are sending that crude to CHINA..
      If you’re serious about jobs get the republicans to fund the infrastructure repairs which are desperately needed and will create about 5 million jobs.

      This is just another of a myriad of reasons to run as far from the hildabeast as you can, not that we need another reason. She is a total failure as a politician, a proven liar, a murderer along with her hubby billy, an America hater, power hungry and the list goes on and on and on.

      Read the news, we have enough oil to start exporting it. None of the sand oil is staying in the US it is for export to other countries. The number of jobs in the US isn’t worth destroying our environment. The pipeline that is already there, yes there is a keystone pipeline already, has had a number of problems. Have you asked yourself why Canada wants the pipeline through our country and not theirs, they could have all those jobs themselves. It’s because it’s a bad deal and they know it.

    What will it take for the braindead to finally kick this cow to the curb. Of course Jorge Ramos never will because his daughter works for her campaign.
