BREAKING NEWS: Biden Contradicts Obama on Clean Coal
9/23/08 | Winged Hussar 1683

“No coal plants here in America!” Biden pledges, despite Obama-Biden's stated support for clean coal.

This is what the Obama-Biden platform says:

    Create Millions of New Green Jobs

    • Ensure 10 percent of Our Electricity Comes from Renewable Sources by 2012, and 25 percent by 2025. • Deploy the Cheapest, Cleanest, Fastest Energy Source – Energy Efficiency. • Weatherize One Million Homes Annually. • Develop and Deploy Clean Coal Technology. • Prioritize the Construction of the Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline.

This is what Senator Biden told a questioner at a rally in Ohio “We're not supporting clean coal,” Biden said. ...“No coal plants here in America!” pledged the Democratic vice-presidential nominee. “Build 'em, if they're gonna build 'em, over there and make 'em clean because they're killing ya.”

KEYWORDS: notbreaking

Either the statement on Obama's Web site is a lie, or else Biden lied to his questioner.

Okay, I was scoffing at the “Biden takes a fall” scenarios, but this is starting to get freaky.

One thing always amazes me. Whenever the subject of coal is brought up, the discussion almost always revolves around the people who actually dig the coal. Whenever the subject of oil is brought up, the discussion almost always revolves around the CEO’s and executives of the oil company.

Yeah! BEFORE the debate. I know Miss Hill thinks she could wipe the floor with Sarah, but I seriously doubt it. Hillary has that elite complex--ivy law, former 1st thief in residence, failed health care reformer, failed wifie, failed campaigner, but arrogant and sure of herself.

Sorry for the double, but when I hit post, it started and stalled and just sat there, so I hit it again.

Is everyone noticing the site being really slow?. It’s taking a while to load and refresh.

I warned that Biden might be replaced, and McCain should be proactive.

Biden can’t help himself. He’s just a telling a voter what they want to hear. He walks away knowing he got her vote. Let’s pray it’s the only one he gets. Is this a Sister Souljah moment?
