    Will The War On Coal Unplug Obama In November?

    Energy: As coal use drops, job losses rise and electricity prices skyrocket, an electoral map of the 16 top coal-mining states does not bode well for an administration whose energy policy consists of algae and exploding electric cars.

    Earlier this year, Houston-based GenOn Energy Inc. announced plans to close five of its older coal-fired power plants in Pennsylvania over the next four years, saying that tough new environmental rules make it unprofitable to operate the plants, which generate a total of 3,140 megawatts of electricity.

    The plants are in Portland, Shawville, Titus, New Castle and Elrama. Two plants in Ohio and one in New Jersey will also be closed.

    Based on current polls, Ohio is once again a battleground state and even Pennsylvania, full of bitter people clinging to their Bibles and guns, may also be in play.

    Rising energy prices and lack of jobs will play heavily on the administration's fortunes in November, both affected by the administration's war on fossil fuels, particularly coal, being waged via regulations by what has become the fourth branch of government — the Environmental Protection Agency.

    The good folks at RedState.com have put together a map showing the top 16 coal-producing states and their place on the electoral stage. Together they contain 182 electoral votes.

    Of the top coal-producers Obama carried Colorado, New Mexico, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Illinois and possibly New Mexico are likely to remain in the Obama camp. The rest are arguably already gone, like Indiana, or seriously in play, comprising some 71 electoral votes.

    The political landscape in these states has already begun to change due to failure of Obama's economic and energy policies.

    Since Obama took office the state governments and legislatures of Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia have all been taken over by Republicans. And Republicans captured the House of Representatives in Colorado and the governorship in New Mexico.

    Steven Miller, president and CEO of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, warns of job losses totaling 1.4 million over the next eight years and a 23% jump in electric rates in states dependent on coal-fired plants due to EPA regulations.

    Well, President Obama did promise he would make energy prices "necessarily skyrocket."

    Two events last week gave an indication of just how bad things will get.

    The U.S. Energy Information Administration reported a shocking drop in power sector coal consumption in the first quarter of 2012.

    If we vote for Obama again it will be the equivalent to a suicide note and we deserve to whither and die.

    He already told us we could build all the coal plants we want; he's just going to make sure we go broke doing it.
    So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it's just that it will bankrupt them because they're going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that's being emitted.

    Couldn't listen to it, don't need it as a reminder. I can't stand listening to his voice (or his lies). I try to mute the tv or switch channels whenever he's on.

    Thanks for posting it for those who can still stomach listening.

    With any luck, the rapture will come and all the dirty Obama voters will disappear, leaving the rest of us behind to deal with whatever happens next...

    Praise God and all that.

    Aw, don't fret Moonbat, higher energy cost only affects evil White Conservatives. Dingbat DUmmies like yourself are completely unaffected by the rising cost. Now go buy another bag of Cheetos and for Heaven's sake, change your nasty orange stained tighty whities.

    Obama has been using the EPA to force his vision of higher coal rates on everyone. One of the toughest things Romney will have to do is to roll back all that legislation. And I'm not talking about coal, but all the other stuff the EPA has done, too.

    Will he do it? Will Romney reduce the size and scope of the EPA and will he place the proper people at the helm?
