Skip to comments.George W. Bush Caused Mine Collapse (of course)

Coal mine production reached the highest levels in history in recent years. In 2004 coal mining fatalities were near the lowest level in history with 28. Even with the recent high production, MSHAs accident reduction efforts helped to keep the annual fatality totals nearly 50% lower in recent years compared with totals recorded in the early 1990s.
1. Clintons last year in office, 2000, there were 48 deaths in coal mines. In 2004, there were 28
2. The injury rate in 2000 was 6.64, in 2004 it was 5.00
3. Citations for safety violations in 2000: 58,285; Citations for violations in 2004: 64,635 (this would indicate to me more rigorous enforcement under Bush, especially after having cut back on coal industry enforcement jobs as the Democrats claim. Sounds to me like the Clinton administration was asleep at the switch)

Damed statistics again.
Anyone hear him say this on Ingraham's show yesterday?
Laura let his comment slide without response.
Remember how he locked up that huge deposit of LOW SULPHER HIGH GRADE COAL as a "park" during his tenure.
The Riaddy clan in Indonesia were very pleased.
Man oh man oh man...that President Bush is one heckuva guy isn't he? What power he unleashes. He's just one heckuva guy to be able to do all of that. Wow...Yipes...gee....zoom, pow, zap and ... well you get the idea. :)
I hear Bush is visiting the sole survivor right now, trying to disconnect the oxygen.
It's Bush's fault because the economy is so awful, that people are Forced into working in the coal mines to make a decent wage, and feed their chilun's. :-)
There are some in the media now blaming Governor dufus for knowing that the miners were dead and not letting the families know. His excuses are pathetic.
