Greenies are trying to scare President Obama out of approving the Keystone Pipeline, according to The Hill (warning: autoplay ad, then autoplay videeo. It’s pure evil.):

Proponents of the $5.4 billion Canada-to-Texas pipeline say their case is buoyed by the State Department’s environmental analysis of the project, which was released to great fanfare last week.

But critics say approval of the project could sow liberal discontent and hurt Democratic chances in 2014 — including a host of contests that will likely decide who controls the Senate during the final years of the Obama White House.

“It is very likely that there will be negative consequences for Democrats if Keystone were approved,” said Kate Colarulli, the associate director for the Sierra Club’s Beyond Oil campaign. “This is a tremendous opportunity to protect the climate and build the Democratic base if Obama rejects Keystone XL.”

“…build the Democratic base…” For an allegedly non-partisan group, that’s a very party functionary thing to say.

They’re also threatening terrorism if the president approves the pipeline.

Jamie Henn of the green group 350.org called the dispute over Keystone “the most iconic fight of a generation” and said the youth vote, which played an important part in Obama’s rise, could hang in the balance.

“A Keystone XL approval will turn a lot of people off from the process, and they will get involved in action that could be disruptive,” Henn said.

The Sierra Club likesto talk smack, but they always denounce the "other side" whenever there is any confrontation. Whn tree huggers were putting deadly nails into trees to protect them from chain sawing lumberjacks, it was the lumberjacks who were at fault, not the unhinged greenies.
There is no way on God's Green Earth that the Sun King is going to make a decision before November. It just isn't in his nature...

The Sierra Club has made a mistake: It has spoken openly of its agenda, and that agenda is noxious to the interests and the ethics of the larger American population. This will cost them no matter what the Obamunists do.

Sounds like it might turn out a good time to cull the herd.

Yeah, I'd just like to see a bunch of Green Cultists try to keep pipeline construction workers and truckers from their jobs. Just let me get the popcorn, first.
