Hmmm … half a pipeline. That’s useful. Not sure how President Obama expects solve the fuel crisis and/or jobs crisis with half an oil pipeline, but hey.
This news, naturally, was ripe for the mockage.
With this latest move, the president has managed to simultaneously tick off opponents of the Keystone XL Pipeline (who view it as a betrayal of their — and his own — values) and supporters of the pipeline’s construction. He still thinks he can have his arugula and eat it, too.
