Canadian PM Blasts Obama on Keystone: The U.S. Is an Unreliable Energy Partner

The Blaze -- President Barack Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline taught Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper one thing: it’s time Canada expand its list of oil buyers.

In an interview with the Canadian Wilson Centre think tank, the Prime Minister said the pipeline’s rejection — even if only temporary — was enough to underscore the need to find other buyers for oilsands crude.

“Look, the very fact that a ‘no’ could even be said underscores to our country that we must diversify our energy export markets,” Harper said. “We cannot be, as a country, in a situation where our one and, in many cases, only energy partner could say no to our energy products. We just cannot be in that position.”

Canada's PM should do what he thinks is best for Canada. I'm not sure our President is doing what's best for America.

@themaninthehat - "I'm glad we have a President that's NOT Dick Cheney's puppet at last!"

At least Dick Cheney is an American.

No, this wooden-headed puppet is George Soros' puppet, and he is selling our country down the river to Marxists, while enriching their pockets with our tax money.

BudsterMO, go it exactly right. The only oil the U.S. will get out of the Keystone Pipeline is what leaks out of it and into the groundwater supply. All that oil is destined for China as soon as it makes it to the Gulf of Mexico. We'll just collect a small toll for shepherding it across the Midwest.

Why is gstoney commenting on Obama if he's from Ontario, Canada and not Ontario, California? Obama's not your Prime Minister although I'm sure plenty of folks on this board wish he was.

Harper has other things that he should be looking into as his government is under a lot of pressure to come clean about some of the things it has done. Lieing to parliament is not a good thing!!!!

More threats from our so called good northern friends. Keep that toxic sour oil sands crude in your back yard or build a pipe east or West (it doesn't matter) and send it to China, which is where it is going if Keystone XL is built.

So, paulydel, I guess Obama botched killing bin Laden. He didn't do it fast enough? He botched saving Chrysler and GM? Are you mad that Pontiac and Hummer got scrapped? He forced BP to clean up the Gulf. You think they would have done that on their own? The oil dispersant Correxit is known in the industry as "Concealzit".

Oh, and say what you want about ObamaCare. I bet you don't remember it from 1996 when it was called Bob Dole Care. You guys are railing against someone who's as moderate as St. Ronald Reagan who, if he was alive today, wouldn't be nominated by the Republican party because he wasn't conservative enough.

Seriously people, this wasn't that long ago.

Gotta ask jorja13, since the pipeline isn't built yet, how is all of this cheap Canadian oil getting into the U.S.? Is it just seeping in from under the border? Why would the price on the U.S. side go up? Canada's not cutting us off. They need us to keep those dump truck drivers in British Columbia employed. (Oh, and they're not oil drillers, they're tar sand strip miners.)

I love how RambleOn says that Obama supporters think he can do no wrong. Not so. I'll bet the unions in whose pocket that you assume Obama is in don't like him very much over this Keystone pipeline.

I think the Obama haters out there think he can do no RIGHT.

As for Canada. Isn't it nice that they actually give us a discount because we're such good friends? I wonder how happy that makes actual Canadian citizens who have to deal with $6.00/gal gas. I'll bet they love all that cheap Canadian oil leaving the country.

If Canada wants to sell their tar sand oil so bad, they can build a pipeline to Vancouver and have China buy it. We're already producing more oil in North Dakota than we can refine. That's why the cheapest gas is now in places like the Dakotas, Montana, and Wyoming.

One thing I find more displeasing than having Obama as president is the blind followers who react to his ideas as if he can do no wrong. They'd buy SWAMPLAND, USED LEMON CARS, and the BROOKLYN BRIDGE if he were selling it. It won't surprise me if 10 more years from now, they'll have erected statues of him all over and changed the history books to glorify him.

Let them LEARN the truth and wake up before "NO-Obama-VEMBER"!

For Obama this should be the easiest decision ever.
Of course if you are getting paid off by special interest groups, this really complicates things.
