Biden - "no" to coal!

Biden: 'No coal plants here in America'


"No coal plants here in America," he said. "Build them, if they're going to build them, over there. Make them clean."

"We’re not supporting clean coal," he said of himself and Obama. They do, on paper, support clean coal.

The answer seems to play into John McCain's case that Obama has been saying "no" to new sources of energy.

In the primary, Biden opposed Obama's push for clean coal, which is seen as a way of maintaining or expanding America's coal-burning power plants -- many of which are in rust belt swing states.

Comment: "No" to the energy source most plentiful in the U.S.! Madness!


  1. What bothers me more than Biden's being against our most plentiful energy source is the preceding assumption; that the state gets to decide what kind of energy we will, and will not, use. Biden is closer to a full out socialist than most people want to admit.

  2. We are turning more into socialist state all the time. It was a tough call on the recent bailouts. Either let the economy completely crash, or have the government take over more and more control of business. There weren't any good options there.
