    At least they're dropping the lie that the Keystone Pipeline would lower fuel prices in the US.  Many people don't seem to understand that the goal is to get the Canadian bitumen to the Gulf Coast so that they can export it.  It may never be sold in American markets.  In fact this pipeline will bypass midwestern refineries by design.  Indeed much of the recent increase in fuel price has been a result of pipeline companies making changes in their grid to remove the "glut" of crude in Cushing.  They remove it to Brazil or somewhere.
