• Laughter Erupts As WH Scrambles To Explain Keystone Pipeline Veto

    Whether it’s Jay Carney, or Josh Earnest, I feel bad for Obama’s White House press team, considering that they’re asked to defend the non-defensible on a daily basis.

    But, hey, they signed up for the position, so that makes me feel less bad for them.

    Today, as the President vetoed the Keystone Pipeline Bill, a room full of hungry press reporters were waiting to hear why the President has gone 2,300 days without a final evaluation from the State Department regarding the Keystone Pipeline, which was first proposed in 2008.

    CBS White House Correspondent Mark Knoller asked White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, “What’s taking so long?” Earnest responded with near laughter: “I think it’s certainly fair to suggest that the State Department is conducting an in-depth review.” The reporters then erupted into laughter.

    Knoller followed up with, “Could you imagine what he (Obama) would say if he gave you an assignment and you said ‘I’ll get back to you in 2,300 days?” Earnest, knowing his response was laughable, said “I can’t.”

    Watch the exchange above.

    Oh and by the way, the President has been insistent that the Keystone Pipeline would be damaging to the earth’s climate. Well, below is the official White House statement on the veto, which says nothing about global warming or environmental issues or climate change or whatever we’re calling it these days.
