We have told you several times about the Barack Obama War on Coal and the damage it is doing in coal country.Despite ridiculous efforts by his minions to convince us otherwise, Obama’s policies are destroying jobs. Just last week, another 239 Ohioans were laid off because of Obama’s determination to bankrupt the coal industry.
It has gotten so bad in areas dependent on coal, that even the unions in the area are holding back their endorsement. The United Mine Workers is full of hard core Democrats. They endorsed warm-monger Al Gore in 2000, Kerry in 2004, and even endorsed Obama in 2008. The Democrat running for President could always count on this union’s endorsement, even an anti-fossil fuel candidate like Gore. But Barack Obama has done so much damage, that they are sitting it out this year.
UMWA President Cecil Roberts made headlines earlier this year when he invoked terrorism references to describe the actions of EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and said that the agency’s rules could prevent UMWA from endorsing Obama. “The Navy SEALs shot Osama bin Laden in Pakistan and Lisa Jackson shot us in Washington,” Roberts said on a West Virginia radio show in April.
I wonder if Obama will send Ted Strickland down to tell those 239 Ohioans that there is no Obama War on Coal.
