Heartless Liberalism: Obama’s Coal Smackdown

by | 3rd, November 2008

BARACK Obama is a soft touch, right? Well, no: notes another example of Obama’s liberalism with an inhuman face. In a January interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, which no one seems to have noted until now, Obama boasts that his policies would produce bankruptcies:

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.

Unlike Obama’s throwing his aunt under the bus, this cannot be explained away as politically expedient. An American Coal Foundation chart from a few years ago shows that the 10 biggest coal-producing states include the key swingers of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado and Indiana.

Hey, he might not be handing our free gas and homes after all.

Of course, Obama has done nothing yet. As his wife said in 2004:

‘It’s Too Early. He Hasn’t Done Anything Yet.’

Let’s hear it for heartless liberalism…
