Ohio Coal Association: “Obama Ticket Not Supportive Of Coal

Here’s the entire statement by Mike Carey, the President of the Ohio Coal Association:

“Regardless of the timing or method of the release of these remarks, the message from the Democratic candidate for President could not be clearer: the Obama-Biden ticket spells disaster for America’s coal industry and the tens of thousands of Americans who work in it.

“These undisputed, audio-taped remarks, which include comments from Senator Obama like ‘I haven’t been some coal booster’ and ‘if they want to build [coal plants], they can, but it will bankrupt them’ are extraordinarily misguided.
“It’s evident that this campaign has been pandering in states like Ohio, Virginia, West Virginia, Indiana and Pennsylvania to attempt to generate votes from coal supporters, while keeping his true agenda hidden from the state’s voters.
“Senator Obama has revealed himself to be nothing more than a short- sighted, inexperienced politician willing to say anything to get a vote. But today, the nation’s coal industry and those who support it have a better understanding of his true mission, to ‘bankrupt’ our industry, put tens of thousands out of work and cause unprecedented increases in electricity prices.
“In addition to providing an affordable, reliable source of low-cost electricity, domestic coal holds the key to our nation’s long-term energy security – a goal that cannot be overlooked during this time of international instability and economic uncertainty.
“Few policy areas are more important to our economic future than energy issues. As voters head to the polls tomorrow, it is essential they remember that access to reliable, affordable, domestic energy supplies is essential to economic growth and stability.”

  1. Is there a connection between Khalid al Mansour, OPEC, and Obama’s bankrupting America’s Coal Industry?

    We all know that Percy Sutton connected Barack to Khalid Al Mansour in a news reel that exposed al Mansour as a proponent of Barack’s entrance to Harvard. A lot of people are stating that Khalid al Mansour works for OPEC. Without doubt, it would be to OPEC’s advantage to bankrupt America’s coal industry. Is this just a conspiracy, a coincidence or do we really have a fox in the hen house?
