Former Clinton and Bush Cabinet Members, Now Oil and Gas Lobbyists, Expect Keystone XL Green Light

The Tar Sands Blockade of TransCanada Corporation’s “Keystone XL South” continues in Texas, but former members of the Clinton and George W. Bush cabinets believe the northern half will soon be green-lighted by President Barack Obama.

In a Nov. 13 conference call led by the Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA), an oil and gas industry front group, CEA Counsel John Northington said he believes a “Keystone XL North” rubber stamp is in the works by the Obama Administration.

“I think the Keystone will be approved in fairly short order by the administration,” Northington said on the call.

Elizabeth Dole is the most senior member of the North Carolina GOP, and she has the power to stop the racist attack ads against Obama that are running there. But in an election year when she’s widely accused of having “gone Washington,” she’s AWOL on yet another North Carolina issue.

We’re gong to be working with North Carolina bloggers (including Pam Spaulding) to deliver a petition to Dole’s office, telling her to write the North Carolina GOP and make it stop. You can cosign here.
