Never said that you FoxNews fool.
You can lie and deny,as all stupid liberals do,but here is an excerpt from Obamas speech about coal.

Here’s one line that President Barack Obama might want to rewind:“Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
That quip from a January 2008 interview with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board is making the rounds in conservative circles — even Mitt Romney referred to it last month – and it likely won’t go away anytime soon.
“If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. It’s just that it will bankrupt them,” Obama said, responding to a question about his cap-and-trade plan. He later added,“Under my plan … electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.”
Of course, cap and trade is long dead. But coal-fired power plants are powering down nationwide, and they are blaming the Obama Environmental Protection Agency. The president’s critics say proposed greenhouse gas regulations for future power plants are designed to cripple the coal industry.
And just like with another 2008 quote — Energy Secretary Steven Chu’s famed call to “figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe”— Republicans say the Chronicle clip shows what’s really in the president’s heart, that high electricity prices and the death of coal have always been Obama’s goal.

Miners Union Endorses Grimes in Kentucky

The United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) has endorsed Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes in Kentucky’s Senate race, despite Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s attempts to paint her as an enemy of coal.
In a statement, the UMWA said Grimes has proven herself to be a coal advocate.

“Ms. Grimes is not only a strong supporter of coal and the coal industry,” UMWA President Cecil Roberts said in the Saturday statement.“She is the only candidate in this race who is also a supporter of coal miners.

"She cares about their health and safety on the job. She cares about what happens to them once they retire after a career of dangerous, backbreaking work,” Roberts continued.“She cares about what happens to their families, and what can be done to make their communities stronger.”

“Miners need a strong voice on their behalf in Washington,” Roberts said.

The UMWA criticized McConnell for voting against an amendment last week that would have removed the “pension smoothing” from a transportation funding bill. Under the provision, employers can reduce their contributions to employee pensions.

“Sen. McConnell had a golden opportunity to support retired miners and their dependents in Kentucky, but instead chose to vote against them,” the union president said.

You people all time want to know what Mitch has done for coal we dont need anything done for us ----------just sorry Obama get out of the way and call his dogs the regulators back to the dog house.

Earl you got it right..He did it HIMSELF and didn't sit around feeling sorry for himself...He got an education and did it for himself...Something in your comment I find really disturbing..And that is the words..If that sumbitch can do for ME...That's the wrong attitude my bluegrass friend..Why would you want the over reaching arm of the government to do anything for you as an individual...Because you can be sure it would cost you 50 times over what ever they chose to spend on you...And remember the government has no money...Except what they extort from the tax payers..
