“With that being said, many West Virginians believe the last 3 ½ years haven’t been good for us, but we’re hopeful that they can get better.” said Joe Manchin, d-West Virginia.
Prior to that he said that while all people should be wishing their president well, he continued with the above. He has actually stated that he may not vote for obama or Romney.
Being from West Virginia, you can be that his statements are influenced by this presidents policy, if you can conceive of him having anything like a consistent policy, with respect to Coal.
You know, back when the president, greid and peelosee were attempting to pass the so called ‘health care bill”, the Wall Street Journal published this:
These include not just the “Cornhusker Kickback,” “Louisiana Purchase” and other special-interest deals rolled into the Senate bill last December to buy wavering Democratic votes. Democrats also would have to explain all over again why 800,000 seniors in Florida will be spared Medicare Advantage cuts, while those elsewhere won’t.
Senator Lamar Alexander, a Tennessee Republican, says Mr. Obama is asking House Democrats “to hold hands, drop off a cliff and hope [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid catches them. And Harry Reid will have no incentive to catch them because by the time he gets to the reconciliation bill, the president will have already signed the health care bill into law.”
Meanwhile, President Obama met with 20 undecided House Democrats yesterday in private. He urged them to put aside their political concerns and vote for the Senate bill in the interests of duty and country. “It’s always a bad sign when a chief executive tells members of Congress of his own party to ignore the politics,” says presidential historian Al Felzenberg. “It usually means he’s got a bad product.”
So now, after jumping off that cliff, the damocrat reps and senators, are seeing that they have a problem. They ignored the politics and it is going to cost them come November, God willing! And I really don’t think this is using the Lord’s name in vain.
