Obama visits LEBANON (leb-nun) Va - Pro Coal Pro Gun Speech?
Will he talk about people here bitterly clinging to their guns and religion? Will his visit work? Jerry Kilgore says no.
During the teleconference to tout a visit Wednesday to Northern Virginia by Sen. John McCain and his GOP running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, Kilgore said Obama “is out of touch” with Southwest Virginians on issues such as coal and gun control.
“Absolutely not,” Kilgore responded to an inquiry if Obama is succeeding at least in neutralizing gun control and coal/economic issues in places like Southwest Virginia.
“His record speaks for itself. He is totally supporting gun control. He has called for a tax on coal. He likes to use fancy words like clean coal technology, but only John McCain has the record supporting clean coal technologies, and we know John McCain will continue that as president,” Kilgore said. “On issue after issue, Barack Obama is just out of touch with Southwest Virginia. His elitism prevents him from relating to small-town America. When he makes statements that rural Americans cling to God and our guns, what message does that send to the people of Southwest Virginia?”~KTN
Obama is wasting time.
