I understand that Obama's decision to "delay" the Keystone XL pipeline project was mainly made to keep the ecomentalists in his base happy, but it's interesting that:
Warren Buffett’s Burlington Northern Santa Fe LLC is among U.S. and Canadian railroads that stand to benefit from the Obama administration’s decision to reject TransCanada Corp. (TRP)’s Keystone XL oil pipeline permit. ...
“Whatever people bring to us, we’re ready to haul,” Krista York-Wooley, a spokeswoman for Burlington Northern, a unit of Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska-based Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (BRK/A), said in an interview. If Keystone XL “doesn’t happen, we’re here to haul.”
It may not rise to the level of Solyndra in the annals of crony capitalism, but it's still a nicely thrown stone that killed two birds at once for the POTUS: ecomentalists happy and Warren Buffett's got more money to spend telling everyone how evil Republicans are.
