DANEgerus Does It Yet Again......
Okay, before all of you send me anymore emails calling me a piker for not posting more on my blog....and thank you for caring by the way....I am working on my old sneaky house. All the things that I couldn't do while blogging about the election now are demanding to be done.....now. Well, mainly because I would like to be able to walk through a finished house...hey, I can dream...and there is so much that has to be done. So, I am once again swiping something from DANEgerus.......
Be sure to go to his blog and read read read....you won't be sorry. I sure never have been. He is just one of the best bloggers out there.
FIRST BOOK OF DEMOCRAT
OBAMA IS MY SHEPHERD,
I SHALL NOT WANT.
HE LEADETH ME BESIDE STILL FACTORIES.
HE RESTORETH MY FAITH IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
HE GUIDETH ME IN THE PATH OF UNEMPLOYMENT.
YEA, THOUGH I WALK THROUGH THE VALLEY OF THE BREAD LINE,
I SHALL NOT GO HUNGRY.
OBAMA HAS ANOINTED MY INCOME WITH TAXES,
MY EXPENSES RUNNETH OVER MY INCOME,
SURELY, POVERTY AND HARD LIVING WILL FOLLOW ME ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE.
THE DEMOCRATS AND I WILL LIVE FOREVER
IN A RENTED HOME.
BUT I AM GLAD I AM AN AMERICAN,
I AM GLAD THAT I AM FREE.
BUT I WISH I WAS A DOG
AND OBAMA WAS A TREE.

The Picture That Says It All..........
I sure wish I had thought of this comparison....but leave it to DANEgerus to come up with it!
I remember thinking that any woman that would be caught dead in that "dress' was a fool...or worse. Tacky doesn't even begin to cover it...but it seems Michelle is just into not-so-subtly giving us the real image of who she is.
My husband just can't stop laughing...............or as he so aptly put it "Here's to swimmin' with bow legged women...."
Yeah...he's a real card....

Victory In Iraq Day
From the Gathering Of Eagles blog
Thank You U.S. Military
You have answered the call and performed your duties beyond our wildest expectations. You have paid the price for liberating a people who long suffered under a dictator’s boot. You have protected them while the savages attempted to turn their homeland into a killing field. You have mentored them while they learned to stand, walk and run in defense of their own nation.
You are all HEROES!
May God Bless You All

So, Why Bother To Vote?
The "Sisters" of Perpetual Indulgence invading a catholic church service in San Francisco
The nutjobs that are the gay activist community have once again prevailed in getting California's gutless state supreme court to hear their whining. But what makes this latest move all the more appalling are some of the other people who are determined to overturn the voter's wishes. Okay ex.governor Moonbeam isn't exactly a surprise, but frankly, the present governor is.
What the hell?
And if once again the voter's wishes are just tossed aside on the behalf of the already hell-a annoying and uber entitled gay activists....is the court going to make the activists financially reimburse everyone that put money into supporting the initiative in the first place? Damages, so to speak.
We, the citizens of California have suffered enough at the hands of the creepy in-your-face gay activist community. San Francisco is destroyed, our children are being indoctrinated by people with all the "values" of a wood louse, our citizens are being attacked for their beliefs and our state wants to reward this behavior?
What's next? People that want to marry their pet goats? Don't laugh....they are a "vulnerable minority" too, and they do exist.
So, should we just toss aside all our normal societal traditions to placate a group of people that don't respect other people's beliefs or personal space? People that invade churches dressed in drag as nuns? People that attack elderly citizens because they have different views. Didn't I just describe "hate crimes"?
Oh, that's right if you are a normal law abiding citizen you don't have any rights.....much less any access to protection from hate crimes.
How about the rest of us start invading every gay hangout so we can ruin their fun and file legal complaints that we have been wronged. After all, you only have one mind's eye....and for those of you who are lucky enough to not have to be exposed to this sick sick sick behavior, trust me, you don't want to know what gay activists call "normal healthy behavior". Because it's neither normal nor healthy. It's beyond disgusting.
And, once you have to scoop your mind's eye out with a spoon there is just no getting it back is there?
What adults do in private is their own business but gay activists don't want private rights like the rest of us, they want special super-rights.
If we haven't, as a society, leaned by now that these people want to shove what they do in our faces because that's what activists do...they try to hurt others merely to get attention....then we need to get our heads examined.This is much more about the "creep factor" than actual rights.
This is what happens when you pander to loons.
Not one of my gay friends was against prop. 8....they were for it. Go figure.
If we give on this marriage issue it will be something else, something much worse next time. Don't fool yourselves for a moment.
I cannot stress enough that these aren't the normal gay people we all know. These are activists, and activists only want one thing.....constant attention to their perpetual victim hood.
And, as they have proven ever since prop. 8 passed, by just about the same margin as Obama was elected by the way..... they don't mind hurting anyone to get their own way.
It's time to say enough.
This is the line in the sand, you want to cross it there are going to be big problems.

Say Hello To The Ignorant Morons That Just Screwed America....
But on the upside, Vladimir Putin [or as the tools in this video would say "who?"] just can't stop smiling.....oh, wait, that isn't a good thing is it?
But I'll bet the idiots on this video would think it was...after all they think "spreading the wealth around" is a good thing...."
And let's not forget to give that "special" thank you to the
Pravda Main Stream Media. After all without them, this election could never have happened.....
512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points
97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates
Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions
57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)
81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)
82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)
88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)
56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).
Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes
Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter
And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her "house," even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!
Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.
Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we "gave" one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)
We are sooooooo screwed......

Incredibly Sad News......
For anyone who knows Roger Gardner or has been fortunate enough to read his amazing and thoughtful work at his blog RADARSITE, this will come as the worst kind of news.
Roger has been diagnosed with acute leukemia, I will let him tell you the rest:
Dear loyal Radarsite readers --
This is a strange message for me to be writing. But it must be done. But how? What can I say? I think I'll just say it up front. Two days ago I got diagnosed with acute leukemia. It is considered "lethal". I have been told that it could come to an end in as short a time as 2 weeks. I have been allowed to come home for one night before I go into the hospital tomorrow for chemo. If I survive the first week, things could get better, if I survive four weeks thing could really get better. However, as of now the first prognosis does seem the most likely. I think we all wonder how we might react to news like this. At this point I can tell you that I am in a good mood, and I have accepted it and I have nothing but gratitude that I have been allowed to live this long, and to have found such a fulfilling mission this late in life.
I am so grateful to have made so many good friends and to have found so many worthy patriots who love this great country of ours as much as I do, not despite what we have done but because of what we have done.
This may be my last article and of course I would like it to be my best. I would like to fill it with everything I have learned or felt. I would like to say something really profound and meaningful, but I just can't. I'm getting too tired right now to go much further.
I can only say thank you for all I have learned from you and for your steadfast loyalty. My fondest hope of course would be that I would come back home all cured and find this article to be an embarrassment to me. lol But of course that's not up to me.
Please, all of you, all of you who are my fellow warriors, all of you who have commented here, and all of you who have been quiet readers, keep up the good fight, and I hope that you have enjoyed me as much as I have enjoyed you.
With great respect,
Roger W. Gardner
Please, please keep Roger and his family in your prayers. He is a wonderful man who has done so much more for all of us than most citizens of this great country will ever know.
I know I owe him a huge debt of gratitude.....and in reality everyone does.
Roger we all need you, we need you to get well and use that clear erudite voice of yours more than ever now.
But most of all we need you to to get well because you still have a lot of living to do and we would all miss you more than you could ever imagine.
Be sure to go and visit his site and leave your good wishes...........

Just For Laughs.........And We Need Them
You just can't make this stuff up..........
Is it The Onion? Iowa Hawk?
Nope....it's those wacky Peruvians.
So Peru offers Obama a dog....a special dog that happens to be their national breed of dog.
And it's hypoallergenic too.
There's just one little problem.............
"Ears" the dog
Barack the President
The resemblance is striking, no?
So, since our new overlord is so vain I'm thinking that he will probably find some excuse to not take the dog. Something along the lines of "It looks way too much like me so it would need it's own SS detail to protect it."
It will be his first international incident since the
After all, before this "dog incident" he had "just" interfered with Kenya's presidential elections on behalf of his murdering cousin Raila Odinga.
And now this.....poor
fearless fearful leader......
November 12, 2008
Ahem....And You Thought Fair And Balanced?
Yeah....not so much actually.
This doesn't even remotely surprise me, what have I been saying for quite awhile now?
The judge does surprise me......sadly.
November 11, 2008
Throughout this election I have found myself disgusted on more than one occasion with the mega bloggers of the right.
Or, as I like to think of them...... the tea party rebels.
There they were, with one pinkie delicately held out above the mouse pad while they pronounced how profoundly flawed John McCain was. He was too squishy, too middle ground, too not-conservative-enough for their tastes.
In other words…he was a direct reflection of them.
And then after they had ripped their own candidate apart, they then went on to slightly criticize Barack Obama. But not too much…because let’s face it, that would smack way too much of actually taking a real stand.
And that just won’t do when you are trying to make a living from blogging.
You have to worry about how you look, about maybe not being always right in your views and that stays the hand better than anything Obama could ever come up with. They spent so little time in actually taking a stand against a dangerous Marxist that they did all the work for him.
Once upon a time the pen was mightier than the sword…but now it’s been eclipsed by worry of being politically correct. Welcome to seventh grade, where it’s more important to look cool than to be honest.
To be honest you sometimes have to go out on a limb….and often that isn’t a very comfortable place to be.
So they screamed that we needed the bailout [oh, you know who you are] and then criticized McCain for voting for it. The hypocrisy must have given Obama more than one full belly laugh as he easily manipulated them. They repeated the silly rumors about McCain and Palin that Obama’s people let drift while at the same time ignoring completely the truly frightening plans Obama actually had for America.
Because, as the so called mega bloggers knew, the fairness doctrine was looming just around the corner and if Obama were to be elected he would enact it. So lick his hand they must.
I watched FOX news, that once important voice for the conservative movement, move more and more to the left….…until it just became a more silly, and annoying ,version of CNN.
I am just a small blogger, I have a loyal readership of a few thousand and I am fine with that. This isn’t my life, and it certainly isn’t my living which leaves me free, I suppose, to tell you the truth how I see it.
I have good contacts and good sources and I frankly don’t give a rip about what people think of me.
I follow our family’s code of “It’s not who is right, it’s what is right” and that serves me well.
And I know a dangerous Marxist when I see one. For those of you who think I am being unfair to our new president by not giving him a chance to show us what he is all about I have this to say:
I have seen enough.
Any man that is as inexperienced as he is and yet would still think he was qualified to be president during wartime is a dangerously delusional man.
Add to that his “friends” and allies and the fact that he is a socialist and I ,personally,don’t need to know any more.
What really hurt the Republican Party this year wasn’t the democrats directly, it’s the so-called republicans that are more worried about how they look than what is good for their country.
And for that they should be ashamed of themselves…..it’s exactly where the liberals wanted them and they were more than happy to oblige them.
And now as America is destroyed from within they can lick the hand that got us here….but they can count me out.
Too harsh? Too bad…………….
Stop calling yourselves conservatives and start calling yourselves what you really are; the “party of the perpetually surprised”…..
When Israel is destroyed, when we end up in a police state, and a third world war don't expect anyone to take your surprise seriously.
No one can be that foolish after all................

Mombasa? Darfur? No....Philadelphia
The beginning of the death of free speech..........
Our founding fathers are spinning in their graves. Ignorant trough feeders have just handed this once great country over to a marxist, racist thug.
Yeah....I said it. Thug.

Get Obama...Dissent From Day One
I agree with everything The Sultan says here. He is one of the best and clearest voices those of us who consider ourselves true Americans have..
From Sultan Knish
Thanks to systematized voter fraud covering everything from pre-marked ballots to forced voting for the disabled to homeless people who smilingly admitted on camera that they had voted multiple times, Barack Hussein Obama has been recognized as the official winner of the election.
And what has Obama won? He's won a chance to be responsible for the economic mess that his own backers caused and that even the threat of his pro-tax policies is already prolonging. He has won the chance for sovereign rule with a Democratic congress whose ratings are already in the toilet and sole responsibility for the looting and corruption that will inevitably follow. Simply he has won the chance to go down and take his party down with him. And we can help.
Dissent from day one is the motto here, but it actually begins long before day one. It begins now.
Obama's best asset has been his lack of a record allowing him to promise something for everyone. Obama has worked so hard to avoid a record that he has voted Present and never run on the issues. Now he will have to begin delivering and from the moment he begins making his first appointments, he begins developing a record.
And that is where we begin holding him accountable. With sole control in the hands of the Democrats, everything wrong in government can be and should be laid at their doorstep. The key thrust must be to characterize Congress and the people around Obama as corrupt and Obama as incompetent and a failed leader. Every policy, every proposal, every appointment, every statement must be linked to one or more of these messages.
During the election we were warned not to use Obama's middle name. Well let's give him a new middle name now Failure. Failure must be closely associated with everything Obama does with reference to a "Pattern of Failure."
e.g. "Obama's failed policies once again have failed to bring economic recovery".
"A failure after only a 100 days in office, Obama continues to show that the big job is too much for him."
"Obama's ethically challenged appointments demonstrate a failure to live up to his own ideas."
"Russia's latest moves show that Obama has failed to be a leader who can be taken seriously."
The idea of Obama as a failure will be that much easier to sell because Obama's campaign has set the bar so high in terms of expectation. The failure to deliver on them will trigger a backlash from many of the people who voted for Obama not because of race or because they hate Republicans, but because they genuinely expected him to make their lives better.
Obama has risen to power on a cult of personality. Cult of Personality tyrants deal with the frustration of their people in two ways, first through domestic terror and secondly by directing it outward. Obama can't direct it outward at any of America's enemies as they are his allies. He can only attempt to direct it domestically at the opposition and at the nebulous forces of big business. And every time he does that, the counter is to cite the unemployment rate and job losses as a direct product of his anti-business policies.
Corruption meanwhile must be a major talking point, using any flaws in Obama's nominees as supporting evidence and citing his ties to major Wall Street Firms and the whole Subprime mess, which his administration is certain to perpetuate with more bad loans. Sticking that at Obama's doorstep as "Bad Loan Barry", the man who as a lawyer, legislator and in the White House forced bad loans to be made.
Describing the Obama administration as "Ethically Challenged" is an ideal way to avoid overusing words like corruption which people tend to tune out while creating a brand perception. When that perception has sunk in, we can switch to "Corruption." It is never too early to begin characterizing Obama's appointments as ethically challenged and then later bringing them together as a "Pattern of Ethically Challenged Appointments." Consistent use of such wording will stick even with Obama supporters forcing them on the defensive.
We have the opportunity now that we did not have in the early days of the Clinton Administration. The blogsphere has proven that it can research and vet a candidate better than the lapdog media. Now we can research and vet his policies and his appointments and assemble a consistent perception and labeling of them before Barry even soils the White House with his presence.
The key will be to communicate a consistent message to the American public that Obama is a failure, that his policies are worsening the economic crisis ("Obama's Economic Crisis") and that he's surrounded by corruption.
This corruption will be used by citizen's groups against corruption to call for investigations of Obama's actions, to oppose his policies, particularly any expansion of government or any aggressive measures or programs which will be "Wasteful Spending" that is only worsening the economic crisis and is overseen by "Obama's Ethically Challenged Appointees."
This of course is only the beginning. We have a very big target now and two years in which to pound the hell out of it. Let the games begin. Make no mistake about it, we will fight and if we want it badly enough, we will win.

The classless moron that idiots elected speaks......
Notice the fake office that the pretend president is presiding over? What? You thought it was a real office?
And you idiots that voted for this creep thought that his fake presidential seal was just a slip up?
This was on the podium when our new socialist in chief spoke to the great unwashed masses.....
And morons like Juan Williams and Alexis Glick just lap it up.
President elect Uh Uh Uhbama gave a press conference just a few moments ago.
And what does he say about the economy? Absolutely nothing, as usual.
He talks in circles and manages to say nothing while talking endlessly. Though, to be fair it does take extra time when you have to say Uh Uh Uh every other word.
However...he still managed to be an ass.
He mocked Nancy Reagan for her "seances".
That's classy really you complete ass.
You can say bi-partisan all you want but it really means nothing when you have have Rahm "vicious shrimp" Emmanuel standing right behind you and you are mocking one of America's favorite first ladies.
You just stay classy you moron............

Buck Up........."We Are Still Right And They Are Still Wrong"
From Ace of Spades........
So Obama won. It's not the end of the world. Everybody chill out.
1) It's hardly a popular vote blowout. McCain kept it close in a tough anti-republican climate, and there's a still a significant proportion of the population that's with us, nearly 50%, in fact.
2) If Barack does win, he does so only by pretending to be a centrist and a tax-cutter. And that lie is going to be exposed riki-tiki. By 2010, the entire country will know just how liberal Obama is, and the pendulum will swing. It'll be up to us to see that it swings far enough.
3) It's important to remember that we're conservatives, not liberals, or "progressives" or whatever they're calling themselves this week.
Politics isn't our life, and if we lose an election cycle, we're still going to be happier as a group then they will ever be, even after they've won this one.
Like they always do, hardcore liberal voters have placed all their hopes and dreams into one, terribly flawed, terribly human basket. And without doubt they will be terribly disappointed, especially when they learn they've still got to pay their own mortgage and buy their own gas.
Their Messiah, ain't one, which will become painfully apparent to them soon enough.
Meanwhile, here on the right, we have low expectations of human nature and even lower expectations of government. It's hard to disappoint us.
And unlike the liberals, all of our hopes and dreams are in exactly the same place they were yesterday, in our family, our friends, our local community, in our work, in our religious faith, and in our country. Those are the great constants, always there for us even when we suffer the greatest of setbacks.
Yep, tough times are ahead, and we're going to have to fight like somsabitches to keep Obama and the Congress from screwing things up too much in the next two years. But, we've been there before, and we've prevailed before.
4) Don't give the fucktards on the left the satisfaction of seeing you all act like a bunch of hysterical schoolgirls. They're the ones who can't take defeat. We can take our lumps, get up, and keep fighting. We should be Happy Warriors. whose proper response to this is mockery, good humor, and hard work. We lost an election, but we're still right, and they're still wrong.
Anyway, it's time to cowboy up, and get ready for the next go round...........
My personal take on this? I think even without all the voter fraud that Obama took part in....and ,oh he did don't kid yourselves....he still would have "won" this race. Accent on race. Let's face it....he didn't just play the race card, he pulled out the whole deck and became a pro at it. Will we ever know how many foreign nationals and thugs bought this election for him? No, we won't. Will we ever find out what really happened, who he really is? Most likely not. But I will make this prediction...it's a whole lot easier winning a political race than it is to actually govern a country without running the country into a hole it will never get out of.....and he isn't up to the job.
That's what worries me.
The legitimate votes that Obama got were cast by people that want a free ride.
So if you voted for him, I understand, but I have no respect for you. You have to be an adult to vote .....well, usually...in this election you didn't even have to be human or alive, or a citizen...... so you should be acting like an adult.
Not a spoiled kid on Christmas morning just wanting the new shiny thing........the shiny thing that you think is going to do everything for you.
And yes BEaR KELEY....I am talking to you.
Get a J-O-B.
Am I worried? Yes I am....we just "elected' a socialist with ties to terrorists and thugs, an anti American Trojan horse of a moron to the highest office in the land.....you betcha I'm worried and if you aren't then you are a fool......
Because now the Chicago way just became the American way....and that, my friends, is not going to go away ever.
The crooks are really in control now......

Think! Before You Vote............
From Right Voices:
Obama channels Mao:
Obama appeals to devotees in Virginia:
"I feel like we got a righteous wind at our backs here, but we’re going to have to work. We’re going to have to struggle. We’re going to have to fight."
And here is an excerpt from the writings of Chairman Mao:
The ill wind of opportunism is falling, the righteous wind of socialism is on the rise.
By the end of this year the victory of socialism will be greatly assured. Naturally there will be many struggles ahead and we must struggle hard.
You can imagine how proud Bill Ayers must be!
And here is my take on it............
As an artist who has created many a Logo I can tell you that you use images to inspire, remind,and/or push people to your "product". I can also tell you that the the striking similarities of these three logos are not just some coincidence.
The first one is the A.C.O.R.N. logo, the second is the weather underground's logo and the third is the
Marxist Obama logo.
In fact I could just take most voters on a tour of every creepy Obama ad...from his make-believe Presidential Seal to the commie-style posters, to the giant versions of his head that pop up everywhere [he is always watching you....a little not-so-subtle reminder] and by the time I was through most Americans would be shaking in their boots.
And they should be.
This man is a dangerous socialist with only his own interests at heart....but I repeat myself......
But, in the end there is one picture that really does tell you everything you need to know about what Obama really thinks of America........
Symbolism is important....and very powerful. That is why it is used by both advertisers and politicians, and I should add dictators and despots....and it does mean something. It is telling you where that person is really standing, what he really thinks and where he is really going to take you and your country.
If his ads look like socialist propaganda....it's because that's who he is.
This is not an ordinary election, and don't fool yourself...if Barack Hussein Obama is elected America may never recover.
I really hope that I will not have to call you comrade after tomorrow's elections.

Jimmy Carter Take Two...Put A Sweater On Fools.....
Obama/Biden are all for clean coal right?
Yeah...it seems, not so much..........
And remember this little factoid when you read this: America gets 50% of it's electricity from coal.
Money quote from the idiot Obama:
"The problem is not technical, uh, and the problem is not mastery of the legislative intricacies of Washington. The problem is, uh, can you get the American people to say, “This is really important,” and force their representatives to do the right thing? That requires mobilizing a citizenry. That requires them understanding what is at stake. Uh, and climate change is a great example. [See Orwell 1984...get completely creeped out.]
You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know — Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because I’m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it — whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money* on to consumers.
Obama adds..."So, if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can — it’s just that it will bankrupt them, because they are going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted."
*Of course the blithering idiot meant to say cost...but what the hell. He just likes to hear himself say one thing in San Francisco and another in coal country....it's his thang, man.....
But it gets better.
Remember when the MSM just howled that Biden had just "slipped up" when he said that he and Obama were against clean coal?
I guess that's true if by "slipped up" you mean telling the truth. Poor Slow Joe he gets slimed for telling the real truth about what Barack is up to.........but come on! It's his job. Did you think Obama chose him for his sterling intellect?
His nickname is Slow Joe....after all.
According to a video posted on a Center for American Progress blog, Biden said, "We're not supporting clean coal. Guess what? China's building two every w eek. Two dirty coal plants. And it's polluting the United States. It's causing people to die."
Biden added, "China is burning 300 years of bad coal unless we figure out how to clean their coal up. Because it's going to ruin your lungs and there's nothing we can do about it. No coal plants here in America. Build them, if they're going to build them, over there; make 'em clean because they're killing you."
West Virginia's Democratic congressional delegation says Biden's words have been misconstrued and believe the state's clean coal initiatives are safe under a Democratic administration.
"Barack Obama is a coal state senator, for Heaven's sakes, and Joe Biden is my friend," said U.S. Sen. Robert Byrd, D-W.Va., "Coal has to be part of any national effort towards energy independence and Sen. Obama, who has been endorsed by the UMWA, knows this well. I will continue to do all I can to promote and fund a great future for coal, and I know that the Obama administration will agree."
Byrd's colleague, U.S. Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., echoed his sentiment.
"I would only give my full support to a candidate for president who wholeheartedly supports clean coal and I can assure you that Barack Obama is that candidate," Rockefeller said. "He has said it to me and he has told West Virginia, he values our precious American resource and his administration will fight for clean coal. Any suggestion to the contrary is not the Obama energy commitment I know."
And ABC News
ABC News' Matthew Jaffe reports: A conflict over clean coal is brewing on the campaign trail after video surfaced of Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., telling an anti-pollution campaigner in Ohio that he does not support coal plants in America.
Approached following a rally in Maumee, Ohio, last Tuesday, Biden was asked by a campaigner for 1Sky, an organization against the development of new coal-fired power plants, why he supports clean coal at a time when “wind and solar are flourishing here in Ohio.”
The animated, close-talking Biden then put his hands on the woman’s shoulders and launched into a passionate, finger-wagging argument that he and Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., do not support clean coal.
Or if you are the kind of person that wants to check it out for yourself...by all means do, just Google *Biden coal remarks* and start reading.........I'll still be here while you read all 216,000 articles.
I'm pretty sure that many people, especially those fond of Kool Aid, will still be convinced that the republicans just made all this up.............
But that's why the rest of us call you mouth breathers.............
To re-cap....America gets 50 % of it's electricity from coal.
And according to Hot Air:
This comes as no great shock, pun intended. Obama already called for a 15% reduction in demand for electricity — at the same time he and his allies want transportation to switch from gasoline to electricity. Obama never explained this particular contradiction. How does one switch tens of millions of vehicles from gasoline to electricity while not Increasing demand, let alone by cutting it 15%? And when trying to break free from a recession, the nation will need greater production in energy, not a reduction.
The coal-based economics of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, and other states will be the first to feel this new policy. Let’s hope the voters there pay attention.
