Seems the freepers have found and passed along to Drudge an audio - Obama will bankrupt coal plants, in his own words more or less.

We need to get the work out on this one. I have posted a few on craigslist in the state of Pennsylvania, however, I am not the only one. Others have also. I know Pennsylvania is coal country but where else? We can't rely on the media but perhaps Rush and Sean will help us on this tomorrow.

Any suggestions????

YES!!!!!!!!!!! This audio of Obama saying 'he will bankrupt the coal industry' was mentioned by Sarah Palin today! She BLASTED OBAMA on this!! See the following from Washington Wire

Palin Attacks Obama on Coal Production
Nick Timiraos reports from Marietta, Ohio, on the presidential race.

Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin unleashed a new volley against Barack Obama on a four-city tour of Ohio on Sunday by touting newly released audio comments made by the Democratic presidential candidate promising to restrict the construction of new coal-fired power plants in the U.S.

The issue is particularly sensitive in coal-rich Ohio, West Virginia, and Colorado. Obama made the comments to the San Francisco Chronicle in January, which were posted on YouTube over the weekend.

Obama said that under his proposal to cap greenhouse gases, energy suppliers would get incentives to develop technologies to reduce pollution and to use cleaner sources of power. “So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can,” Obama said. “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.”

Palin told supporters to listen to the audiotape. “You’re going to hear Sen. Obama talk about bankrupting the coal industry,” she said. The Alaska governor also pointed to comments that Democratic vice-presidential candidate Joe Biden made to an environmental activist, promising no more coal-fired power plants in America. Biden was videotaped, likely without his knowledge.

“In an Obama-Biden administration, there would be no use for coal at all, from Wyoming to Colorado, to West Virginia and Ohio,” Palin said.

The Obama campaign scrambled after Biden made his comments in September, clarifying that Obama remained committed to exploring the as-yet-undeveloped clean-coal technology in order to produce cleaner-burning coal-fired power plants.

Since she focused on this in her stump speech today, the MSM will have to pick this up. This is going to be HUGE the next couple of days, I can feel it.

And people - my husband works for an electric utility. If the coal industry is bankrupted, YOUR electric bills WILL RISE. 100% guaranteed. These utilities will NOT absorb the extra costs, they WILL pass them on to YOU. Bank on it. Get this truth out there to everyone you know!

NOBAMA!

YES! I saw this today and it's just ONE more thing to cause the independents to take notice. Obama is NOT who he pretends to be and let's hope this one sticks.

BTW, I will be going to see the Big Mac today at at midnight rally here in Miami!! I can't wait cheers cheers cheers

Just got back (2 am) from the McCain midnight rally here in Miami where some friends and I and about 7 or 8 thousand (mostly) Hispanics attended and waited for hours till the Big Mac showed up almost at 1 am. The crowd went WILD! Lieberman was there as well as Cindy and Megan and our Senator and Congressmen. I've never seen such enthusiasm for a candidate. He was probably exhausted from a full day of campaigning but was visibly energized by the crowds. It was a highly memorable experience and well worth it! Keep on praying folks. We can still do this! cheers
