    but same difference. Once re-elected, what little influence we now have on him about this will be gone.

      a republican would not have.

        This disappoints the commentator. He or she is one of those "Democrats" who is in love with losing, a charter member of the Chicken Little Club. He or she just hates it when you achieve even a partial victory, since it undermines their puerile, nihilistic worldview.

        Sending the pipeline back for "further study" is by far the most sensible way to deal with it at this point. It stops the project for the time being without offering much of a political target for attack. You don't want to see this project or anything like it come back? Elect a Senate and House of Representatives that will reject it. Obama just bought you the time to do that. If you don't, your blood is on your own head.

        I dance to Tom Paine's bones.
