Coal miners union calls McCain a liar

Informative read in it’s entirety but here is the union calling John McCain a liar…as good as it gets;

The union representing coal miners came to Obama’s defense Monday. "Sen. John McCain and his running mate, Gov. Sarah Palin, have once again demonstrated that they are willing to say anything and do anything to win this election. Their latest twisting of the truth is about coal and some comments Sen. Obama made last January about the future use of coal in America," said Cecil E. Roberts, president of the United Mine Workers of America, in a statement released Monday afternoon.

Roberts noted that McCain and the Republicans ignored Obama’s overall point during his interview.The Democratic candidate told the Chronicle, "This notion of no coal, I think, is an illusion," noting the amount of energy the US derives from coal.

Obama pushed for development of technology to sequester carbon emissions, the central tenant of so called "clean" coal.

"Despite what the McCain campaign and some far right-wing blogs would have Americans believe
, Sen. Obama has been and remains a tremendous supporter of coal and the future of coal," Roberts said.

McCain unloads whatever he can as close to the end so Obama doesn’t have a chance to answer effectively
