Why barry got any votes in coal country is an enigma.
As far as a distinction between regulations and legislation I think that difference has become moot. Barry, in his first term, stated he was not a dictator and could not implement the 'dream act' . Yet he has indeed done just that. He also went up to WV and said he liked "clean coal". He learned. Tell them what they want to hear, then do what you want to do. He forgot to tell them coal miners as far as he is concerned "Clean Coal, means No Coal.""
