    http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-m...says-romney-once-said-coal-burning-plant-kil/

    Romney accused Obama of stifling domestic production and said he would champion the oil and coal industries. Obama fired back that Romney hasn’t always been such a proponent of coal.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BpgLYryI8g]Romney in 2003: "I Will Not Create Jobs That Kill People" - YouTube[/ame]

    Obama said Romney has changed his tune about coal, claiming that in Massachusetts he "stood in front of a coal plant and pointed at it and said, ‘This plant kills.’"

    We rate his statement True.

    ------------------------------------------

    It's kind of hard to rate something one way if there is "video". Like when Romney said "Cut government workers he identified as "Police, Firemen and Teachers"." He wasn't kidding.

    Or the 47% video that went on in great detail for 40 minutes.

    That may have won Ohio for Obama. Willard has a short memory.

    Leave it to RDean and Obama to talk out of context like they always do.

    Still waiting for RDean the liar to support his other claims I have nailed him on...he's not returned to the thread (his own) since. He's a coward.

    Romney called this plant a dirty plant because it apparently lacked some air pollution equipment.

    Imagine that.

    You can be after a plant that does not have the right emission controls and still be for coal.

    But RDean is to stupid (not to mention having his head up Stephanie Cutter's ass....no wonder she always has that stupid smile on her face) to know that difference.

    And JimH0.52 is his understudy.

    So, Rderp is in favor of pollution. Got it.

    dumb ass...

    from the OP link...
    So, according to Politifact, you have a plant operating unsafely, and then-Gov. Romney was taking steps to bring it up to speed safety-wise, or shut it down... and Rderp disapproves.

    How many dead people would you have preferred there by, Derpshit?

    Republicans are the ones against regulations. Not me.

    You do know the Senate Republicans introduced a bill to abolish the EPA?

    Romney was just being Romney. Romney isn't anywhere near as anti-energy as Obama.

    "Clean Coal" is not clean and still pollutes heavily, idiots.

    You'd have to be a mother fucking idiot to believe it is clean and doesn't pollute very much at all.

    So which of you assholes are willing to quote me and prove you are a mother fucking idiot?
