WOW! Ohio Coal Miners to Obama: Quit Lying About Us!

Ohio miners gathered Friday afternoon read aloud a letter the miners mailed to Obama. They told the president to quit lying about them in his ads. (Herald Star Online)

Ohio coal miners held a press conference on Friday to tell Barack Obama to quit his lies and mistruths about them. The Ohio Intelligencer reported, via Wake Up America:

Coal miners at the American Energy Corp. Century Mine said they want President Barack Obama to stop what they term “the war on coal” – and to stop spreading “mistruths” about them.

Miners gathered Friday afternoon to express their opposition to Obama’s energy and environmental policies, which they believe threaten their jobs. Miner Mitch Miracle read aloud a letter the miners mailed to Obama that outlines some of their concerns.

The miners said Obama’s campaign team is running ads filled with “blatantly false” statements about the miners regarding their participation in Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s August campaign stop at the Century Mine. These ads assert that the miners were forced to attend the event by the mine’s owner, Robert Murray.

“There are numerous false statements and absolute lies concerning our participation in this event, mostly started by a local ‘shock jock’ radio host,” the miners’ letter to Obama states. “Why would you (Obama) lie about the 500 working miners who have signed this letter? We, the employees of the Century Mine would request you immediately stop these false ads.”

This summer, Murray Energy Corp., parent company of the Beallsville mine, cut or relocated 56 workers with the closure of the Red Bird West mine near Brilliant. Murray also cut 29 mining jobs from The Ohio Valley Coal Co.’s Powhatan No. 6 Mine. All of this was done, Robert Murray said, because of Obama’s “war on coal.”

Just part of the daily untruth(s) that come from Obama, the Obama campaign, Jay Carney working for Obama .... Susan Rice working for Obama, Hillary working for Obama ...

Sorry - the list will take too long to type.

Wonder how they feel about their union “brothers” in other unions being big Obama supporters? The other unions have no qualms about throwing the miners under the bus.

Some people are never punished for lying so they keep lying.

Well, of course not. Their livelihoods are being propped up by Barry's stimuluses or Democrats at state levels. As as one sees the other as their cash cow, they're happy with each other.

If they were stupid enough to support this jackass the first time I don’t credit their judgment as very credible at all.

Any jackass that bought his hook and sinker story needs to stay home. Do not get near me.

If they would vote FOR Romney, they would have a very strong Case.

BTW Miners in W. VA threaten the same thing w Joe Manchin they might get somewhere.

You have to carry out your threat every once in a while to be credible.
