[June 25 tweets from Graham] Rather buy oil from Canadian allies & friends than rely on oil imports from Russia, Venezuela, or Middle Eastern regimes who hate our guts.
We need oil, Canada has means to deliver. Nothing more common-sense than expanding long-standing, mutually beneficial relationship w Canada.
I know from my own experience, and in spite of all the heated rhetoric, issues like Keystone XL really don’t get much simpler to resolve.
I was one of the first members of the US Senate to visit Canadian oil sands to see 1st-hand how this resource could benefit our country.
The choice is simple – build Keystone XL pipeline, create jobs in the United States, and lessen our dependence on oil from the Middle East.
If the Obama Administration rejects Keystone XL it will be one of the most short-sighted decisions in memory.
Some of the highest greenhouse gas emitting countries in the world, like China, are already lining up to purchase Keystone oil if we don’t.
Mr. President, what are you thinking? Even if we don’t build Keystone the Canadians have made it clear they will sell oil from the oil sands
