Report from Lebanon - U.S. Rep. Rick Boucher said Obama “is a friend of coal"
How many coal miners were there? I for one did not see the navy blue and blaze orange crowd represented. I did not see or hear one coal operator or company represented and not one person challenged anything the One had to say. Not one question about how taxing coal will make it better for miners and their families.
After the fodder talk, the visit is already forgotten as we await McCain and Palin to visit the coalfields. While I'm at it, how about visiting the real coalfields? Lebanon is a farming community, not a mining town. To bad Obama was not talking in Grundy, or St. Charles, that would have been interesting.
