FOLKS WELCOME TO THE REPORT.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING USTONIGHT.

YOU KNOW, FOLKS, IF YOU WATCHTHIS SHOW-- AND I HOPE YOU DO--

AND IF THERE'S ONE THING THAT ILOVE SAYING, IT'S "I TOLD YOU

SO."

OH, GOD, THAT FELT GOOD.

( LAUGHTER )SEE, I TOLD YOU SO.

OH!

THERE IT IS AGAIN!

WHAT A RUSH.

AND, FOLKS, TODAY THE YOU I'M SOTELLING IS BARACK OBAMA.

YOU SEE, FOR YEARS THE PRESIDENTHAS BEEN DRAGGING HIS FEET ON

BUILDING THE KEYSTONE X-LPIPELINE WHICH WOULD DRASTICALLY

INCREASE OUR NATION'S SUPPLY OFOIL AS WELL AS OUR NATION'S

SUPPLY OF PIPE.

NOW, FOR A WHILE OBAMA INSISTEDHE COULDN'T COMPLETE THE PROJECT

BECAUSE THE NATION'S BESTPIPE FITTERS WERE BUSY SAVING

PRINCESS PEACH.

THEM HE CLAIMED HE COULDN'TAPPROVE ANYTHING UNTIL HE GOT

THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTREPORT.

LAST WEEK HIS STRATEGIC EXCUSERESERVE RAN DRY.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT FOUND THATTHE PIPELINE WOULDN'T HURT THE

ENVIRONMENT LIKE PROPPONENTSCLAIM.

>> THE PIPELINE ONLY HAVE AMINIMUM IMPACT ON CARBON

EMISSIONS.

>> Stephen: MINIMUM IMPACT.

BOTTOM LINE, THE PIPELINE WILLPROVIDE US WITH MUCH NEEDED

FOSSIL FUELS.

SPEAKING OF FOSSILS, BILLO'REILLY.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ).

NOW, FOLKS, I DON'T KNOW IF YOUWERE WATCHING, BUT ON SUPER BOWL

SUNDAY, BILL SAT DOWN WITH THEPRESIDENT AND DID WHAT THE

BRONCOS COULDN'T-- HE SCOREDPOINTS.

( LAUGHTER )JIM.

>> ALL RIGHT, KEYSTONE X-LPIPELINE, NEW STUDY COMES IN,

ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT NEGLIGIBLE.

42,000 JOBS.

YOU'RE GOING TO OKAY IT, IASSUME.

>> FIRST OF ALL, IT'S NOT42,000.

THAT'S NOT CORRECT.

IT'S A COUPLE OF THOUSAND TOBUILD THE PIPELINE.

>> 42 ALL TOLD.

>> THE BOTTOM LINE IS WHO WE'REGOING TO DO, THE PROCESS NOW

GOES-- AGENCIES COMMENT ON WHATTHE STATE DEPARTMENT DID, THE

PUBLIC IS ALLOWED TO COMMENT,KERRY'S GOING TO GIVE ME A

RECOMMENDATION -->> SO I ASSUME WE'RE GOING TO DO

THAT AFTER FIVE YEARS.

>> WE'LL TAKE A LOOK AT IT.

>> OKAY, I'LL TAKE THAT AS AYES.

( LAUGHTER ).

>> Stephen: YOU HEARDPRESIDENT O'REILLY.

HE SAID YES TO THE KEYSTONE X-LPIPELINE, THAT'S WHY I LOVE

BILL.

HE'S NOT ONLY ASKING THEHARD-HITTING QUESTIONS.

HE'S PROVIDING THE HARD-HITTINGANSWERS.

( LAUGHTER )AND PAPA BEAR IS RIGHT, FOLKS

THE PRESIDENT'S OWN STUDY SAYSTHE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT IS

NEGLIGIBLE, BECAUSE MOST OFALBERTA'S OIL WILL FIND A WAY TO

GET TO MARKET ANYWAY, IF NOT BYPIPELINE, BY RAIL.

IT IS INEVITABLE.

IF SOMETHING IS INEVITABLE, THENAMERICA SHOULD BE THE ONE TO DO

IT.

( APPLAUSE )CASE IN POINT-- THESE PEOPLE GET

IT-- CASE IN POINT, ISN'T ITINEVITABLE THAT THE ICE CAPS

WILL MELT SO I SAY WE DROWN THEPOLAR BEARS IN THE SAN DIEGO

ZOO.

WE CHARGE PEOPLE A COUPLE OFBUCKS A HEAD TO WATCH AND GIVE

THE MONEY TO THE WORLD WILDLIFEFUND AND THEY CAN USE IT TO SAVE

THE POLAR BEARS.

OTHERWISE, THOSE GUYS AREDOOMED.
