Southwest Virginia Voters Uproar Over Pathological Joe Biden's Comments and Feckless Rick Boucher Looks Like a Fool
WJHL Reporter Nate Morabito talks to some voters in Leb-Nun.
Patty Howard works in Lebanon, Virginia. The self-confessed Obama backer was taken aback by Biden’s comments.
“It kind of made me mad,” Howard said. “They don’t need to tell us one thing one day and tell us another the next day. They need to keep their tails straight.”
Howard says that is especially important when the candidates are talking about coal production in America.
“Coal is our main source around here of living and it’s our income,” Howard said. “If it wasn’t for coal miners, we wouldn’t make much here.”
Well before Biden’s comments surfaced, lifelong Democrat Patricia Milam already shared her support for John McCain. If anything, the release of this video on You Tube only strengthens her convictions.
“It don’t matter where you’re at,” Milam said. “If you’re going to a different location and you know that they’re for it, then you don’t need to change your story.”
Still, for some like Thelma Ball, the wife of a coal miner, Biden’s comments are harmless. The Democrat is giving Biden a free pass this time.
“Politicians, sometimes they say things to just be elected,” Ball said.
That said, the majority of people we spoke with say this double talk can’t be ignored. It may not affect the way Patty Howard votes come November, but the Obama supporter won’t let it go unnoticed.
“It just bothers me and he will get an email from me,” Howard said.
In a statement sent to our news partner the Bristol Herald Courier, the Obama-Biden campaign insists both candidates support clean coal technology. Virginia Congressman Rick Boucher is standing behind Obama and Biden’s commitment to coal too. By phone today Boucher said, “It’s not reliable to take a few words made to people along a rope-line and consider it policy...No one can doubt that Senator Obama is a strong friend of coal.” Boucher explained away Biden’s video comments as trying to say the United States needs to sell clean coal technology to China while still using it here as well.

I think Boucher is full of shit. Biden lied, and it was not the first time. Feckless Rick is doing no one here in SWVA any good with his rhetoric. Is the truth in any of these men?
