Stephen Harper's Great Pipeline Humiliation
Oh dear. I see that Stephen Harper's pathetic attempt to threaten Obama has been met with a chuckle and a shrug.
The Obama administration is unfazed by Canadian warnings that delays in the Keystone XL pipeline review will add urgency to Ottawa’s effort to ship crude oil to China, U.S. Ambassador David Jacobson says.
And no wonder eh? When Harper is only helping Obama's enemies.
In condemning the ruling, Republican house Leader John Boehner accused President Obama of “shipping American energy security to China.”
And like our homegrown oil pimps, the bonehead Boehner doesn't know what he's doing or talking about. It's his fault for playing cheap politics. And that oil isn't going to America, it's going to China.
Like everything else in Canada.
Even though on his first day as Opposition Leader, Harper once had a very different view about how to work with the Americans.
The new opposition leader wrapped up his argument, the first he wanted to make on the subject he had selected in his parliamentary debut as a national party leader: “We will be unable to get the U.S. administration on board unless whoever is in the White House and leading members of congress value and respect what our Prime Minister brings to the table.”
Oh well. Leave it up to the New York Times to put the bigger issue into perspective.
Far more important to the nation’s energy and environmental future is the development of renewable and alternative energy sources. This is the winning case that Mr. Obama should make to voters in rejecting the Republicans’ craven indulgence of Big Oil.
And leave it up to Obama to REALLY humiliate Harper when he doesn't have to worry about being re-elected.
Yankee doodle whoopee !!!
Which no doubt accounts for the fact that when Stephen Harper said he was "profoundly disappointed."
The horrible sounds coming out of the PMO sounded more like this...
Memo from Great Leader: The re-enactment of the War of 1812 will now feature LIVE ammunition and REAL Americans.
Because NOBODY but NOBODY humiliates Stephen Harper !!!!!!!
Oh really Great Leader? Never was Canada made to look so bad.
And never was a Prime Minister so ridiculous....
