Obama to Coal Miners: “McDonalds is Hiring!”
Canada Free Press ^ | October 4, 2012 | William Kevin Stoos

Another Hugh Betcha Exclusive

Obama, the first President in history to declare war on the coal industry and who vowed to put the industry out of business, was curiously confident that every union coal miner would vote for him in the upcoming Presidential election—despite the fact that in doing so, they were putting themselves out of a job.

And Hugh Betcha, Ace Reporter and winner of MSNBC’s “Most Honest Reporter in America” award, 2012 was there. Hugh, the Head of the Stoos Views Media Conglomerate Natural Resources Bureau, and old friend of the President, and a reporter who enjoys special access to all branches of government, pulled no punches. As Obama sneaked his daily Marlboro inside the Oval Office, Hugh inquired of the President as to his chances of retaining the union coal miners’ vote in the upcoming election.

“Didn’t you promise to bankrupt the coal mining industry after you were elected President?” Hugh asked.

“Well, yes I did suggest that if you planned to start a coal fired energy plant in America you would find it hard to obtain a license or, if you did, you could not afford the cost of the EPA regulations we have imposed on the coal industry,” the President responded.

Thank you for making Romney’s point exactly in the key states of Pa and Ohio, Mr President. Coal miners are going to make Romney the President Elect thanks to your dumb statements.

This is an examp[le of Obama led liberal fascism.

A coal-less Utopia is about to be rammed down the throats of the People, who want coal.

Obama is getting closer to being run out on a rail.It won’t take much more.

The article is satire. As if we need to be confusing people at this crucial time with facts vs fiction.

Same dumbasses that voted him in will vote him out. Too bad they can only think with their own personal wallet. Tunnel vision hurts.

Obama isn’t qualified and cannot be trained. Once a race baiting Community Organizer, always a welfare recipient.

Coal miners, to my knowledge, are paid a lot better than burger flippers. And what they produce helps produce electricity. Obama says he wants to shut down coal mines and coal fire plants, driving up unemployment and utility rates simultaneously.

Maybe it’s just me, but I would appreciate satire being marked as such.

Oh, c’mon. Use your intellect and God given sense of humor. It wouldn’t be humorous if it said “Cartoon coming up”.
