  •  Stop shifting responsibility. (3+ / 0-)

    It is our responsibility, not any politician's. That is my point.

    I'm trying to head off the next Keystone, and there will be another monstrosity if we believe the failure was all about President Obama and not how we are prosecuting this issue.

    Stop with the stupid rox/sux stuff because it is nothing but a huge waste of time that needlessly divides us and helps entrench interests.

    The politicians may be bought, and the system corrupt, but it is our duty to fix these things.

    •  What? Because suggesting Obama can choose (6+ / 0-)

      whether or not to override public opinion is dividing us?? Well he can override and I sure as hell hope that he does. If that divides us, so be it.

      Obama has gone against the general sentiment before and, in some instances, been very courageous in doing so. I hope he does it again on this issue.

      I do hope we learn from Keystone but climate change deniers and the environmental-protection-is-bad-for-business crowd are winning hands down all across the country. The next Keystone?? Look around you at the fracking across the shale country. Look at the environmental destruction. What's going to be left to protect??

      I cannot stop this thing nor can you; Obama can. He has the power to stop this because of the international borders involved; we, whoever "we" is, do not. Without the border issue, this would be over and done, signed sealed and delivered to big energy.

      The president got the responsibility when he took the oath of office. It comes with the territory. Literally.

    •  Excuse me? (7+ / 0-)

      You're shifting responsibility away from the guy who could very well sign this nightmare to humanity.

      Just stop, please. You have made your same point, repeatedly.
