    Barry told everyone while campaigning in 07 that he was going to attack the coal industry but, unions being unions just had to go out and vote for the democrat. I don't care what side of the fence you're on, if you say your attacking the industry that pays my bills and feeds my family then I'm voting against your sorry arse.

    Well let,s see. You have millions of people working in the coal industry and BO wants to shut it down and kill all their jobs supposedly to replace it with green energy(which isn,t working out too well , by the way). These people vote too there Prez.

    He must think only the Hollywood crowd gets to vote. Hard working people who are facing massive job looses are not on his horizon.

    "And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."

    The article said: "Cecil Roberts, the president of the United Mine Workers of America, traveled the country for Barack Obama four years ago." Obviously, 4 years ago, Cecil Roberts had plugs in his ears, because Obama said even then that he would bankrupt the coal industry (or was it the typical 'blind following of the Democrats by the Unions?). He planned to use Cap & Trade, but when that didn't get passed by his Democratic controlled Congress, he turned to the EPA to regulate them to death! We will all see the effect this fall with 25% of the coal fired electric generating plants close due to unreasonable EPA regulations and no new plants are opening.

    PA ,WVA , MD are also a great source for Natural gas . Which is fought against .
    Coal is what Obama promised to bankrupt.
    Power plants and coal mines will be shutting down this year .
    As promised Food, Fuel and Energy prices are going to SKYROCKET, That's Forward ?
    Higher prices, Fewer Jobs and greater poverty . Thanks Obama

    There are many reasons why the nitwits on the left do and say the things they do, but the single most important reason is because the communist democrat party and their commie friends in the media have brain washed these idiots to believe that anything conservative is somehow not just bad, but evil!!

    Well, Democrat voters in 8 counties in WVA preferred a Federal inmate to the sitting President. Not surprising, since Mr. Obama has done his best to destroy their pride, jobs, and self-respect, not to mention the coal industry....

    Obama speaks from both sides of his mouth and even Harry Reid made note of that
    Reid on Obama -- a "light-skinned" African American "with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one,"
    He used his Negro dialect when he took his anti gay black church tour, summer of 2007.
    A hundred thousand families suffering from his promise to bankrupt the coal industry.
