Imagine if John McCain had whispered somewhere that he was willing to bankrupt a major industry? Would this declaration not immediately be front page news? Well, Barack Obama actually flat out told the San Francisco Chronicle (SF Gate) that he was willing to see the coal industry go bankrupt in a January 17, 2008 interview. The result? Nothing. This audio interview has been hidden from the public…until now.
That’s quite an admission. Thank goodness we can all vote for a conservative presidential candidate who’s skeptical of big government efforts to curb climate change. What’s that you say? John McCain has also endorsed a cap-and-trade scheme? One that includes a series of massive corporate giveaways? Whoops . . .
