Romney flip flops on coal. He doesn't support coal. He only says what he thinks you WANT to hear. Look at his actions....they do speak louder than words.

Romney said in 2003 at a press conference in front of a coal plant:'I will not create jobs or hold jobs that kill people. And that plant, that plant kills people.'"

The clip of Romney bashing coal comes from a 2003 press conference he held as Massachusetts governor, where the state announced a crackdown on a coal plant in Salem. Romney was booed by plant workers, but stuck by the state's policies on the plant.

Back in 2005, Romney told the Boston Globe he was “convinced” that cap and trade was “good business.” It was his administration, in fact, that helped guide the development of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, a cap and trade system in the Northeastern U.S.

Watch the video for yourselves.

Video of Obama in his own words in 2008 promising to raise electic costs and bankrupt coal: ...

Another video of Obama with the SFChronicle in 2008 promising to bankrupt coal: ...

Don't take my word, go watch the video and take the President's own word for it, he campaigned that he would bankrupt coal - and that's one promise he has kept!!!

Obama plainly said you build the coal plants and I'll shut them down. I heard his say that and he has done nothing to help coal. All he has done is try and tear it down. He just wants to give billions to green energy that doesn't work.

Romney is now telling us what the Republicians want you to hear. He is for abortion, for gun control, his health care he passed in Mass is almost the same as what Obama passed, he is anti coal, for gun control, he is not a Christian but Morman, He required 10 yrs of tax returns for all of his vice pres canidates but will only release one of his.

Watch this video you will be amazed if you watch all of it.
