"Senator Obama has revealed himself to be nothing more than a short-sighted, inexperienced politician willing to say anything to get a vote," Carey declared.

0bama and his minions in the lamestream are accusing Gov. Palin of distorting, misinterpreting the interview with the SFChron -- any comment from them about these folks in the actual industry he asserts he plans to bankrupt?

In the case of early voting, I would agree, but the timing is such that Obama has very little spin time and perhaps not the will to waste what time he has left on a subject he tries to say as little about as he can.

It would be interesting to hear if miners who voted early are having regrets.

no, then it would be old news by now, and obama would have had a month to decide how to spin it. This is the problem with early voting. It comes too late for some of the early voters, but just about right for the election (maybe 1-2 days earlier would have been a little better so it could gain a little more traction.)

“alleged remarks”?

Are they saying the SF Chronicle used in impersonator in the tapes that are publicly available?

Just more spin for Zero.

Wonder how many UMW workers went and voted early for Obama on the urging of their union bosses and are now spitting mad.

We have a lot of coal interests here in Montana, yet the largest newspaper in the state (The Billings Gazette) openly endorses Obama has absolutely nothing in yesterday or today’s edition about this.

It’s about EVERYONE...not just the coal industry. We’ll all pay higher prices if he gets what he wants.

Of the ones that vote and haven’t already voted.....Bad timing on the RNC again. It’s still good for a few votes and that should be just enough,

Montana has always been an anomaly to me. I grew up there and it's very liberal in it's leanings but in actuality, very Conservative.

That being said, I have many relatives still there and they are all democrats voting McCain. Which is unbelievable because they are rabid Democrats. Union people and have always been democrat

Spread the word to all those coal swing states, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado, New Mexico, and Virginia.

Ohio Coal Association Says Obama Remarks Make It Clear: Obama Ticket Not Supportive of Coal

What Obama's plans are for the coal industry--- “So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can,” Obama said. “It's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted.”

“sure wish this had all come out a month ago.”

True, but Sunday is better than tomorrow. Another week would have been nice.

The big question is with the huge amounts of money the campaign has been sent, why the heck didn't they find this sooner?

The info was out in January. In my opinion the political consultants screwed up really big with this. They tried to say the San Francisco Chronicle didn't release this, when the realty ii, it was on their website the whole time. A simple web search found it.

Alleged remarks? We have recording of his voice making the remarks in question.
