    "RUSH: There you go. "We worked on mine safety. Byrd, Rockefeller, we worked on mine safety in the Senate. But more needs to be done." Well, they didn't get anything done. Was there no union responsibility for improving mine safety? Where was the union here? Where was the union? The union is generally holding these companies up demanding all kinds of safety. Why were these miners continuing to work in what apparently was an unsafe atmosphere?"

    What an idiot. Ditto heads, defend and deflect please.

    Massey energy is non-union and apparently has one of the worst safety records - not just that one mine.

    This has to be an Onion story... did he really say this? They are a non-union mine with a TERRIBLE safety record.

    Rush doesn't want to KNOW anything. All he wants is to talk. But if by some miracle I'm wrong, tell him 'right to work' that he supports is what happened to the union.

    This has to be a joke. He can't be this stupid. I mean, a guy arguing for weakning unions then complains that unions didn't have the clout to protect their members.

    What is this, bizarro world?

    No, this is DittoLand. And comments like this will be supported, be ignored, or be spun....whatever it takes for his loyal syncophants to wrap their pinheads around his inconsistancies and lies.

    He's saying the Union was derelict in its duties.

    Do all liberals need translators?
