    being factual. Jobs, where the oil goes, price of midwest gasoline. Those are all fairly well established facts for anyone who pays the least attention.

    But don't be mad if the facts turn around and bite you in the butt. Will stopping XL cause a decrease in CO2 causing gasses? Could we end up using that oil instead of shipping it out via the Gulf if need arose? Will it make us less dependent on people we don't like? Those are the questions that need answering. I know I read on here that XL is the end of the world, but this is DK, not reality.

    XL has polled well with Americans, last time I checked it polled well with Dems. Liberal Dems split just slightly anti XL. I've no way of knowing which way this will go, if I did I'd say so. But I know enough not to read too much into Obama stating the obvious.
