Welcome back to the five.
It's a big day for people who think energy comes from rainbows.
Yet President Obama -- the Keystone Pipeline which would have moved oil deposits from Canada the country to Gulf Coast refineries here.
So that's not to pay four bucks a gallon for gas you can think George Clooney and Leo DiCaprio.
Seat to a Hollywood celeb the environment is that vast waste land between nightclubs.
That has no cocaine or blondes but still must be preserved in case you want to make a -- Oddly both USA today the Washington Post came -- against Obama.
Apparently immune to the charms of Robert Redford who by the way -- agreed to push my car when I run out of gas.
Heck even Obama's own jobs council was for -- I guess what America really needs a car that runs on hypocrisy.
That way -- DiCaprio is jet setting duplicity could powered aircraft carrier.
So a -- six century -- we'll continue to hold America hostage so we don't irritate if you care bill.
What's worse for the earth a pipe that causes a few dumb elk and make a detour or nuclear Iran.
So I am announcing I'm going -- and all caribou diet.
In fact I'm calling for a national drive.
-- all the -- bill who artifact holding America hostage.
It's -- they pay their fair share.
If we eat our way to energy independence maybe we'll keep Obama from feeling guilty about building -- down.
And look even if we run out of the animals there will still be one -- that -- you that Obama can bow to his name is captain corn based give -- my best you know me.
Did a lot of people are ticked up the Republicans Washington Post -- this for setting this deadline on the decision.
Which they claim -- forced Obama's hand.
What is that sixty day limit -- what it was a big deal.
I don't think not not that.
Not to -- because it just -- -- that in context.
That -- decision had been in the making for three years it actually is and I think that there will be a legal challenge made.
It was -- that question that they let it turn on was not what it should have been -- on this was a legal situation this is an environmental decision by the president.
And US senate and Washington Post not necessarily known as the most right -- of editorial pages came out against him.
But so is three years and then -- Republicans that have sixty days to decide yeah more on the -- reroute.
Well guess what sixty days and was they -- they were able to decide in the administration just sixty days when they first got there.
After the Bush Administration turned it down.
Solyndra they go first sixty days I was -- first announcement that they -- It was easy to give away taxpayer dollars but it's not easy to make a decision is in our national interest.
Because of the short term political expediency said.
Didn't drop -- -- -- -- -- The left always says in their protests it was -- the science and no blood for oil.
I guess you're lying it was no caribou for oil what you forgot something else Greg I will join your all terribly -- but we also have to eat all the sagebrush lizards in the the world and and you -- -- -- as well because those are two other species -- the now injured in there are causing.
Farmers in in oil people who re -- that department's here's here's the point.
There are literally.
Hundreds of pipelines in America there are literally dozens of pipelines coming down from candidate hasn't been.
And -- environmental issue up until now this isn't about the environment.
It's not about the price of oil it's only about when Obama finally.
Ask signs on to excel because he well -- 05 -- maybe.
At least while -- feel that if gas prices were through the roof he popped probably sign on to excel part pipeline but because they're not sky high and people are screaming that's why.
He didn't do it look I think this is because most blatant.
Political play -- you even have Joseph Klein this morning on MSNBC saying that this has nothing to do.
With anything but politics.
I do find it interesting that it tells me the fact that the union supported this but environmentalist in mountain that he knows at the end of the day the unions will be with and they Hezbollah are the best nights ago to mean.
Like well yes -- -- -- if he's wrestling back I go back effected just interject your personal -- caribou here I don't think getting a little careful look there's care I think you get to some room.
Like America's -- -- -- you need to know look he hears and it might -- in this idea that the Republicans forces and should've done but.
In the end.
From political standpoint it would been made more sense to go with the pipeline I think he made a mistake.
From a pure political -- reasons and union vote.
Is important it is not at all certain that that's gonna be for Obama in these are generally this with the -- angry white male vote to split off.
And moment Ronald Reagan did you say the union vote isn't at all certain it's gonna go for Obama -- -- yeah the large large overwhelming percentage.
You're not letting it depends on the nominee without well and you're right are they anticipating Democrats that that Mitt Romney won't be able to get those Reagan Democrat well that was someone different would he would changes -- I don't.
I'm not sure about that -- -- -- bit before you jump and I'm here at this day I would like to be talking about the fact they were.
Fewer people who I ask you for unemployment -- -- the drop biggest drop in six years.
They're wondering what -- five million dollar other one point six million jobs created last year.
In the manufacturing which more than it had happened in any good years -- -- the bush years in one year so.
I think do a lot of good economic -- ones point seven million jobs -- got to get them back to breakeven that that's rightness one point seven million after the first -- that she got -- I think it was a bad decision from a national security standpoint you and I think that they'll start to hear a little bit more about that as things and -- Well -- -- -- it's gonna go to China said the environmental.
Concerns are still there it's still out there.
They re -- that there is gonna come here there's going to be -- there's going to be this type I will be your -- and also an air and screw around -- -- the president Obama's election.
Do you realize why we even have been XL pipeline Keystone Pipeline in this and XL pipeline is because we refuse to drill our -- oil -- -- -- -- -- he won't need Canadian tourists in oil or any Canadian all for the -- it offshore in the Gulf Coast up in Alaska -- Miller as we can be self sufficient in oil all we need right here.
Got to move on so the battle for 2012 is heating up.
The first big Obama -- is released today.
We'll play it for you gonna make all of these Morris with my special homemade recipe can't use case instead of -- And here.
