Senate Dems block Keystone pipeline streamlining

Our Democratic friends are at it again -- doing everything possible to keep gas prices high. Every possibility to get oil into this country, something we desperately need even when gas prices are low, is being thwarted by Obama and his Dems. I hope at least some of this activity trickles down to the Great Unwashed by election day. Fox:
    The Senate on Thursday blocked a move to speed along the approval and construction of the controversial Keystone pipeline, after the White House lobbied Democrats to oppose it.

    A total of 11 Democrats, though, ended up breaking with the president to vote for the Republican-backed amendment -- at a time when gas prices are rising and pipeline supporters are using that trend to pressure the administration to act.
