"It’s hard to remember when an American president missed such an easy layup."

The basketball imagery has got to hurt.  American opinion makers continue to build a narrative against the Keystone Pipeline decision.   Walter Russell Mead writes: 
"We are getting the comeuppance we deserve: Canada’s prime minister is off to China to have a nice long talk about deepening Canadian-Chinese oil energy cooperation."

The blocked XP permit has become a meme with a life of its own for patriotic Americans and Canadians.  That some of the XP pipeline is already built and that Enbridge is behind both the XP and Northern Gateway pipeline proposals gets less attention.
