Obama falsely claimed that the boss required coal mine employees to stand around as "props" for Gov. Romney, which is completely false. The boss stated that Obama's entire message in the ad was false; the miners were very pleased to support Gov. Romney, and that they all know that the enemy of coal - and of energy - is Mr. Obama, who publicly promised that his policies would intentionally "bankrupt" any coal-fueled businesses. The resulting price of energy would absolutely skyrocket! Just what we need, right? Brilliant! And now he goes around claiming to be a friend to coal?!

People believe what they want to and it is the responsibility of the news to get the truth before repeating false stories.

They made a video and all signed a letter and sent it to Obama asking that he stop the commercial. They said they were excited to bring their families and be with Mitt. Check it out if you want to know the truth. I doubt ABC will report it. 500 of these coal miners got together and said this story is a complete lie!

Now he's hurting the coal miners - because he cares more about the BWM socialists and enviro nuts in Hollywood - than he does about the working man.
