    This will not play well for Obama in rural Illinois. Whether he wins or not.

    lol..

    In response, Ohio Governor Ted Strickland, an Obama supporter, called Palin's charge a ``last-minute, desperate distortion'' of Obama's record.

    Coal-State Senator

    ``After John McCain said he'd like to `transition away from coal entirely,' his campaign is hardly in a position to criticize a coal-state senator like Barack Obama who has outlined a $150 billion investment in clean coal and other technologies to create jobs and build a new energy economy,'' Strickland said in a statement.

    Palin's afraid she's going to lose 2010, which would make her chances of running in 2012 impossible.

    Transitioning away and bankrupting are very different things.

    The Obama investment will give the industry a boost, transitioning away from coal will bankrupt the coal industry.

    Obama is on tape saying that he will "bankrupt the coal industry." Are we to believe that he changed his mind?

    We aren't talking about McCain here. Stay on topic.

    I was clearly making a point, McCain said Bush's tax cuts were unfair, now he wants to make them permanent. Believeable right? Well why is it so hard to believe this is just another lame desperate attempt that has fallen on deaf ears. McCain can change his mind, so can Obama. Very simple.
