So Much For Biden's Visit To Castlewood

What exactly was Joe Biden sent to the coalfields of Southwest Virginia for again? To lie to the UMW members at that fish fry? That has to be the only plausible answer, what with the latest from Mr. Coal Miner:
Biden: 'No coal plants here in America'
By Ben Smith, Politico

Some great rope line video from Joe Biden's recent Ohio swing, where he was asked by an anti-pollution campaigner about clean coal -- a controversial approach in Democratic circles for which Obama has voiced support, particularly during the Kentucky primary.

Biden's apparent answer: He supports clean coal for China, but not for the United States.

"No coal plants here in America," he said. "Build them, if they're going to build them, over there. Make them clean."

"We’re not supporting clean coal," he said of himself and Obama. They do, on paper, support clean coal. (link and video here)
"No coal plants here in America." How do you boys in the UMWA feel about the Democrat ticket now?
