Ohio coal miners held a press conference on Friday to tell Barack Obama to quit his lies and mistruths about them.
The Ohio Intelligencer reported, via Wake Up America:

Coal miners at the American Energy Corp. Century Mine said they want President Barack Obama to stop what they term “the war on coal” – and to stop spreading “mistruths” about them.

Miners gathered Friday afternoon to express their opposition to Obama’s energy and environmental policies, which they believe threaten their jobs. Miner Mitch Miracle read aloud a letter the miners mailed to Obama that outlines some of their concerns.

The miners said Obama’s campaign team is running ads filled with “blatantly false” statements about the miners regarding their participation in Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s August campaign stop at the Century Mine. These ads assert that the miners were forced to attend the event by the mine’s owner, Robert Murray.

“There are numerous false statements and absolute lies concerning our participation in this event, mostly started by a local ‘shock jock’ radio host,” the miners’ letter to Obama states. “Why would you (Obama) lie about the 500 working miners who have signed this letter? We, the employees of the Century Mine would request you immediately stop these false ads.”

This summer, Murray Energy Corp., parent company of the Beallsville mine, cut or relocated 56 workers with the closure of the Red Bird West mine near Brilliant. Murray also cut 29 mining jobs from The Ohio Valley Coal Co.’s Powhatan No. 6 Mine. All of this was done, Robert Murray said, because of Obama’s “war on coal.”

Murray then hosted the Romney campaign stop in Beallsville in August, during which many miners appeared behind Romney as the former Massachusetts governor spoke about the need to protect coal mining jobs. In response to the assertion some have made about the miners being forced to appear with Romney, the miners made several points on Friday.

  1. Fantastic! Stand up America and keep spreading truth!

  3. These guys are smart enough to see which side their bread is buttered on. About time somebody stood up to the Obama Regime’s actions against the coal industry in this country. Let me remind you of one very important little fact 47% of our electrical generating capacity is coal fired!

  4. ++

    this is why Barry is lying..

    Wow! Hundreds of Ohio Coal Miners Stand in Line for Mitt Romney

    oh who am i kidding..

    Obama is so used to lying, he can’t tell the
    truth even if he doesn’t have to lie..*sigh*

  5. Way to go Miners!!!!

  6. I wonder what the kilowatt hours difference is from years past compared to the Obama “war on coal” years. Less energy, less energy produced from coal, more energy produced through government subsidized boondoggles with unrealistic regulations.

    “Your energy costs will necessarily skyrocket.” He meant it. I don’t think America makes that mistake twice.

    24 days.

  7. Miners! Thank you, Patriots!
    We need an AD with them saying this.
    Mitt Romney will get them working again.
    America needs and wants what they bring us.
    NO MORE BHO: “Under my plan, energy prices will necessarily skyrocket.”

  8. Coal industry is going under because of Obama, Obama said:

    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    Courtesy of President Obama, coal miners in swing states are getting some pre-election pink slips. The job losses raise the possibility of an alliance — or at least a non-aggression pact — between the unions that Obama needs and the industry leaders he attacks.

    The president, in replying to complaints about his administration’s regulations, casts himself as a friend of the worker and opponent of corporations that want to “run roughshod” over people. His Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), though, has succeeded in bringing a Democratic union base into agreement with the billionaires Obama often decries — even the Democratic bogeymen, the Koch brothers.

    Obama is waging “war on coal seeking to destroy the coal industry and the jobs of our own employees and the livelihoods of their families,” according to a Pennsylvania mine manager whose company laid off 225 workers in July. The chief executive of that company explained that “the escalating costs and uncertainty generated by recently advanced EPA regulations and interpretations have created a challenging business climate for the entire coal industry.”

    That complaint provides real-world support for television ads recently run in four states by American Commitment, a super PAC affiliate with the Kochs.

    “Today, President Obama is waging a war on coal,” the ad told voters, citing Obama’s comment that anyone who built a coal plant will go bankrupt.

    Rep. Morgan Griffith, R-Va., echoed that message in conjunction with a pro-coal campaign placing 150 billboards in six swing states. “Too many lawmakers in Washington have ignored President Barack Obama’s War on Coal,” Griffith said in a statement this week. “The Count on Coal campaign is important to Virginians because it is educating the public that coal is not just about mining jobs, it’s about creating all types of jobs, supplying affordable electricity for families, businesses and doing it in a reliable, trusted way.”

    Obama capacity for irritating coal stakeholders is now hurting him among his own base. The United Mine Workers of America announced this week that they will not endorse the president.

    “Our members count on coal-fired power plants and burning of coal to keep jobs,” said Mike Caputo, vice president of the UMWA’s International Executive Board. “We’re a very Democratic union and we try to listen to the rank and file. They’ve sent a clear message that they’re not supportive of the environmental rules that are being put in place.”

    The mining union gave the president fair warning, too, warning repeatedly in recent years that the EPA rules will cost up to 250,000 direct and indirect job losses.

    For these coal miners it is about jobs. Jobs in Coal states are some of the only work there is and Obama is killing them will more regulations.

  9. Coal miners
    Catholics
    Indians
    Small businesses

    Obama is destroying American Values and American Jobs.

    This is a big percentage of the voters.

  10. Good to know that others are realizing that Obama’s war is on them, and on America.

    Lets get rid of this guy.

    Vote in an American.

  11. ++

    okay, not exactly against this concept..

    Obama has taxpayers funding graduate programs in Uganda

    uhm, doesn’t Obama have an aversion
    towards anything but GREEN energy??

    we have a similar programs here in the US, yes??

  13. Btw, FOX showed a HUGE crowd in Ohio (Lebanon?) earlier today. For Mitt.
    Great to see and he sounded good. OHIO, do everything you can to help us save America!
    He MUST WIN Ohio, unless he can pick up some other states along with the other two “must wins.”(that I think are Fla and Va.)

    Obama: If people read transcript, they’ll think I won last debate

    President Obama told a Miami radio host yesterday that he never thought, during last week’s presidential debate, that Mitt Romney got the better of him.

    “That’s not actually how I thought about it,” Obama said on the Michael YO! Show when asked if there was a moment when he knew he was losing last week. “I do think that on television it was clear that I was being too restrained when Mr. Romney was telling his tall tales. But the truth is, when you read the transcript, everything I said was true and a lot of what he said was not.”

    Obama did concede that he “had an off-night” and explained that he was “too polite” to bring up Romney’s 47 percent remarks.

    “It is a useful reminder, though, that the news media’s attention span is fairly short,” he said of the fact that the 47 percent comments didn’t come up in the debate.{…………}
