West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin in a statement Friday, said he is finding fault with Obama's energy and economic policies. The administration has angered West Virginia voters with its increased scrutiny coal mining.
"I strongly believe that every American should always be rooting for our president to do well, no matter which political party that he or she might belong to," Manchin said. "With that being said, many West Virginians believe the last 3 1/2 years haven't been good for us.
Mitt Romney is wealthy and Obama is making his wealth a topic because no Socialist likes wealth for individuals other than himself.
What the Democrats forget is The Kennedy's Wealth made from questionable sources by Joe Kennedy.
Kerry with extreme wealth after marrying the heiress to the H.J. Heinz fortune...but that's okay because it's the Obama Way.
They ought to run that guy out of state on a rail. It's disgusting, that he's turning his back on the ONE. What has changed, nothing. Obami has said many times, You can build a coal fired plant if you want, But, via taxes, and fines you won't be able to operate it. Why not stick with Obami for four more years. Could it be his own job is looking pretty iffy.
As America nears the Age of Cap and Trade personal prosperity will continue to weaken under added stress being created by our own Government. Cap and Trade is a jobs killer. No doubt about it! Serious changes must come to Government or the American people will suffer dearly for the incompetence of Washington.
Mountain top removal is an ugly business. It is exactly what it sounds like, and there have been cases where slurry and debris dams have broken, killing those downstream and flooding communities and streams with toxic waste.
Right now it is about the only way to make Appalachian coal competitive with cheaper coal from the Midwest and with natural gas. Should we set environmental standards low just to allow this area of declining production to continue for a few more years, creating devastating and permanent damage in meantime? I don't think so. But the decline of coal in Appalachia is changing the economy there.
For the record, Sen. Manchin was also critical of Mitt Romney. He basically indicated that he was not pleased with either Romney or Obama...
I appreciate where Manchin is at, as I did not vote for Romney or Obama in the primary election here in Illinois. I'm hoping that Obama and Romney get themselves good VP candidates that make me want to vote for them come November... As things are right now, I just might vote for Ronald Reagan -- even in the grave I think he would do a better job.
