Try Try Again, New Proposal For Keystone in the Works

They say if you fail, try again. The Obama Administration rejected the Keystone Pipeline this week, killing 120,000 blue collar jobs all so the president wouldn't upset extreme environmentalist donors threating to pull their campaign donations should he approve the project. Now, the governor of Nebraska expects the administration to make yet another decision about the project after it is re-routed and changed.

President Obama might be compelled to make a decision on the Keystone pipeline before the election after all.

Though the president just rejected a permit for the controversial project, Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman told Fox News that he expects to send the Obama administration a new proposed route for the pipeline well before Election Day.

"I fully expect we could get it done certainly in the early September, August time frame," the governor told Fox News on Thursday. "I would send the letter back to the president of the United States saying we approve it and if he were decisive, he could turn around and approve it shortly thereafter, well before the November election."

Regardless of the possibility of the project maybe moving forward, eventually, the White House is still pointing fingers and claiming three years just wasn't enough time to make a solid decision.

The White House, in justifying its decision to turn down the permit, blamed Republicans for forcing a decision in a tightened time frame. Congressional Republicans had attached a provision to last year's short-term payroll tax cut extension requiring a presidential decision on Keystone in 60 days, a time frame administration officials warned would not be sufficient.

Nebraska locals say build the pipeline. It's time for the Obama Admnistration to get it done.
