Congress Can Tell Obama To Pound Sand

Pound oil sand.

Capitol Hill lawmakers probably have the Constitution at their back if they require a permit for the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline that President Obama rejected days ago, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service.
 Our state Senator, who is no where near as conservative as I would like is right on this.
Sen. John Hoeven (R-N.D.), who is planning a separate bill to put approval in the hands of Congress, requested the study. 
“I think this confirms what we have been saying all along – Congress has the authority under the Constitution to approve the Keystone pipeline,” said Ryan Bernstein, Hoeven’s deputy chief of staff and legal counsel.

“It gives great weight to not only our bill but any bill Congress considers,” he added.
We are a energy driven country and Canada is a better trading partner than any Mid-East country ever will be.
Man up Republicans. Call him on this. Tell Obama to pound sand!

Yeah, Congress does have the legal authority to grant the permit. The Republican controlled House could give the pipeline the ok. Then the Democrat controlled Senate would say, "f*** you'. And Barack would never sign the bill anyway.

True Will, but the Repubs in the house have nothing to lose and a lot to gain. Barry and his flunkies will be the losers. IMHO.

We can only hope that Congress has the cojones to do so!
