    It just keeps getting worse and worse, the more we find out about this man. He surely wears a Che tee-shirt underneath his custom-made suits.

    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. Here is the transcript of Obama's statement about bankrupting the coal industry (emphasis mine):

    Barack Obama said:

    Let me sort of describe my overall policy.

    What I've said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else's out there.

    I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means that every unit of carbon or greenhouse gases emitted would be charged to the polluter. That will create a market in which whatever technologies are out there that are being presented, whatever power plants that are being built, that they would have to meet the rigors of that market and the ratcheted down caps that are being placed, imposed every year.

    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.

    Just saw this on an extreme right wing site.. it goes on and on and on and on and on.. in reality 30% of American has voted and not sure the continual hysteria, lies and hyperbole will make much difference.. maybe they can make a youtube compilation video about it.. that will convince me.

    If you really listen after he says this he is cut off, perhaps there is more.. if you go to the SF story there is no mention and there is no proof that the youtube video is from the SF Gate..

    With that being said these You Tube Videos are a tad disengenuous and usually false..

    Yeah, the SF Chronicle is the epicenter of the "vast right-wing conspiracy".

    Any minute now your Kool-Aid will start to take effect........

    Once again slowly it is not on the SF Gate website, it is on a you tube video.. the problem is that the interview just ends without qualification..

    Yeah, and you want to hold out hope that maybe, perhaps, just in case Obama may possibly have said something to negate every thing else he said about his desire to destroy the entire coal industry which provides more than 50% of the U.S. energy needs.

    Talk about someone who drinks the Saul Alinsky/Bill Ayers/Bernadine Dorhn Kool-Aid. Your picture's on the label.

    Too bad that you are content with half truths, and information that is deliberately left out.. unfortunately that seems to have been the hallmark of the last 8 years.. don't tell them the truth, give them the half truth.. the problem is that the devil is in the details, and they are missing in this case..

    Oh, please. Obama is scamming the entire country and you want to talk about "the last 8 years". Obama WOULD destroy the coal industry if he could. He has said as much.

    more fogic.. hear a partial clip, that is cut off and believe it without trying to find out the whole story.. he apparently said it, but the whole story was not heard.. if you are content with hearing half the story and believing it then a kitten will probably die in the next 20 minutes.

    Can't deal with the truth, can you. Obama would shut down all coal -- except "clean" coal, whatever the hell that is, must be ten times more expensive as regular coal -- and you know it.

    I will be the same as I am now because I know the Communist Socialist Bastard Obama will win, I will hate him for four years just as Chris Matthews, Jon Stewart, and Sean "F-ck Face" Penn have Hated GW Bush for 8 years.

    Some Neo Cons are capable of HATE just as the Neo Libs are.

    Its the industry i work in,that is the power industry. So i think i know a little bit about the subject, which by reading your above response obviously you don't know much. Which just proves that you throw sh!t up out of ignorance, and contempt for the intelligence of those on this board to stir the pot. Fog before you make these statements why don't you take the time educate yourself and find out what "clean coal" is first.

    You do not know about Fogic.. take a half truth, watch a youtube compilations video and then you become an authority on the subject, when questioned just keep reposting the same thing over and over again.. all the while believing that if you say it often enough it will become true..

    I've seen enough about Obama and his promise to create his own personal army, his "national civilian security force", a la Adolph Hitler, Robert Mugabe, and Hugo Chavez, to know what he intends to do: bankrupt more than 50% of America's energy source. Obama is a lying, evil man.
