"Coal Miner" Joe Biden and the United Mine Workers Union - Fish Frying Fools
To Brian Patton, Rick Boucher, UMWA prez Cecil the weasel Roberts and the rest of those clapping UMWA miners at Biden's visit to the coalfields last week, we bring you this.
I am sure the UMWA miners cant wait to start their new call center jobs for $8 an hour. Jerry says So Much For Biden's Visit To Castlewood. That's right Jerry! I await the the Bristol Herald Couriers editorial board and its leader J Todd Foster to opine on the whole coal miner Joe fiasco. What bullshit. I don't know what is worse: Biden's lies or the UMWA embracing this fool. What say you J Todd?
Biden's apparent answer: He supports clean coal for China, but not for the United States.
"No coal plants here in America," he said. "Build them, if they're going to build them, over there. Make them clean."
"We’re not supporting clean coal," he said of himself and Obama. They do, on paper, support clean coal. (link here)
Now here is real news -
ARLINGTON, VA — Congresswoman Shelly Moore Capito (R-WV), former Virginia Governor and Senator George Allen, former Congressman Scott McInnis (R-CO) and RNC Chairman Mike Duncan will announce the McCain-Palin campaign’s Coalition to Protect Coal Jobs, a nationwide group including members of Congress, state government and other influential leaders. The coalition will help spread the message about the importance of clean coal technology and the advantages of tapping the country’s vast coal reserves. As part of John McCain’s “all of the above” energy plan, the Lexington Project, clean coal will be a strong component of the drive to energy independence. In addition to providing domestic energy, the coal industry is a key part of the economy in several states.
John McCain’s support for clean coal technology is in sharp contrast to that of his opponents. Joe Biden visited Virginia on Saturday, saying that he was a “hard-coal miner” and that it was “nice to be back in coal country” while Obama supporter, Congressman Rick Boucher (D-VA) said “Senator Obama’s a friend of coal.” But just two days later in Ohio, Senator Biden said he wants “no coal plants here in America” and that he and Senator Obama are “not supporting clean coal.
