Daily Caller is not my first choice to link to, but I couldn’t find a video elsewhere.
Former President Bill Clinton said the federal government should embrace the Keystone XL pipeline that the Obama administration rejected last month. Clinton also said that one of the “best things” about being out of office is “you can say whatever the heck you want.”
“One of the most amazing things to me about this Keystone pipeline deal is that they ever filed that route in the first place since they could’ve gone around the Nebraska Sandhills and avoided most of the danger, no matter how imagined, to the Ogallala with a different route, which I presume we’ll get now, because the extra cost of running it is infinitesimal compared to the revenues that will be generated over a long period of time,” he said Wednesday at the Energy Innovation Summit.
“So, I think we should embrace it and develop a stakeholder-driven system of high standards for doing the work.”
Big Dawg also said this, which reminds me strongly of Gov. Palin’s “unshackled” comment last year:
In his remarks, Mr. Clinton mentioned the advantages of not occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
“One of the best things about being a former president is you can say whatever the heck you want,” he said. “One of the saddest things about being a former president is that nobody necessarily cares what you say anymore but you can say what you want.”
