The very next day, I posted this blog entry detailing how the members of the Coal Industry could very well determine who wins this election. I wrote the entry in response to Al Gore's call that same day for students to show civil disobedience when new coal plants were being built around the country. This entry also included statements by Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, saying that she was against coal because she was trying to "Save the planet." As well as comments by Senate Leader, Harry Reid, stating how "coal was making us all sick."
If at any point in this election, you had doubts about where the leaders of the Democrat party stood on the issue of coal, this should settle it for you. Today, a recording of Presidential candidate Barack Obama has surfaced stating how he will "bankrupt" the coal industry. I have included the recording for you to hear it for yourself.
The one state where I have the most readers is Pennsylvania. Most likely because I am a resident here as well, but I hope it is because I also understand the people here. The coal industry is critical to the tri-state area (OH, PA, WV). It is critical to the Ohio Valley more than anything. This area is a large Democrat party stronghold. I hope that they look at which party will be serving their self-interest in the next four years and skip over the rhetoric of the last two.
H/T Hotair.com If you live in the areas affected by the coal industry, email this video to them today. Send this video to your local newspapers and TV stations. It is crucial that we know exactly where Barack Obama and the leaders of the Democrat party want to lead us.
UPDATE: High five to the McCain/Palin campaign for jumping on this tape. I am in a suburb of Pittsburgh and just received a robocall stating that the future of the coal industry is in jeopardy. It tells you to listen to Barack Obama himself and then plays the tape above.
UPDATE2: Video of the conversation added below. Again, h/t to Hotair.com.
