Trust me. Things slip through your fingers when you’re fending off a potentially fatal illness — like blog entries. I’ve been in and out of the hospital since August 24th in an attempt to rescue the rest of body from a rabid tongue, which did its best to kill me in its second cancer go-round in 27 years. I lost two thirds of the vicious beast and gained it all back thanks to reconstructive surgery. My accent reminds me of Daffy Duck, a hero for our time.
Thus, nothing has come from this spot.
But more on that in another entry.
Today, I simply link up with President Obama’s short explanation for his rejection of Keystone XL. I do that because many are second guessing his “inner motives.” Some view this decision as the predictable brain child of a schemer bent on America’s destruction; others see him as the ultimate altruist. In an eerie coincidence, the two camps roughly correspond to anti-Obama and pro-Obama voting camps.
Personally, I don’t know what his motivations were. I don’t live in his head — but his reasoning is sound. I present it below, in his own words, unfiltered through pundits.
