Re: Obama pledges to bankrupt Coal Industry

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can. 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," he said. In the same interview, the senator said that "if technology allows us to use coal in a clean way, we should pursue it."


Part of the problem is that we know MORE about Joe the Plumber than we know about Obama. The SF Chronical had to go "fix the story" provide the audio please.

Re: Obama pledges to bankrupt Coal Industry

Excellent - can you now please explain to me the civilian security force?

And all the other non-reported tid-bits that Obama speaks.

The thing is...

Under reporting of Obama's positions on many things has been the name of the game in this whole election cycle.

Oh - and now Obama has canceled his post-election press conference, you know the one where he was going to explain all.

The media has done more to tell us about Joe the Plumber than Obama.

Re: Obama pledges to bankrupt Coal Industry

Oh - and since Obama's website has flagrantly abused donor fraud...

Let me guess - you haven't heard about that have you?

Where his website didn't ask for security validation? Where users could give in any name any address>....

Please...

Get the vote out hell... get the information out.

Re: Obama pledges to bankrupt Coal Industry

So.. if his own party can't say what Obama HAS done... how are we supposed to assume he can do anything???

Oh and don't forget the squelching of dissenters...

That was a pretty sad interview, I admit.

Well, I suppose that's where the argument comes in. There is no question that McCain has more experience. I don't think anybody can deny that. I'm not sure that's the focus of the Obama supporters, however. They are looking for "change" not "experience."
