For those who can stand the nausea, here's Obama pitching for Obama and Keystone XL pipeline in Cushing, Oklahoma:

President Obama today in Cushing:
"Now, right now, a company called TransCanada has applied to build a new pipeline to speed more oil from Cushing to state-of-the-art refineries down on the Gulf Coast. And today, I'm directing my administration to cut through the red tape, break through the bureaucratic hurdles, and make this project a priority, to go ahead and get it done. (Applause.)"

Bill McKibben: Winter Heat Wave Underscores Need for Obama to Reject, Not Fast-Track, Keystone XL


(Excerpt)
AMY GOODMAN: President Obama is going to be protested by Native Americans. One of the people who is decrying what he’s saying is Marty Cobenais of the Indigenous Environmental Network, who says, "President Obama is an adopted member of the Crow Tribe, so his fast-tracking a project that will desecrate known sacred sites and artifacts is a real betrayal and disappointment for his Native relatives everywhere." Final comments? We just have 15 seconds.
BILL McKIBBEN: Yeah, the Indigenous Environmental Network is doing a great job there in Oklahoma. And as the President moves on to Ohio, there will be protesters there, too, later in the day. You know, environmentalists never win permanent victories. That’s the thing. I guess we’ve got to keep this fight, as with many others, going strong.
