McAuliffe

Terry McAuliffe must have a memory problem, or an honesty problem. He’s running for governor in Virginia, and was out on the campaign trail touting his support for the coal industry.

“I was over at Alpha Natural Resources talking about what they need done to make sure we have a healthy work force of coal, that coal can continue,” McAuliffe told reporters. “We need to make sure we do what we need to, to make sure this vital industry here in Virginia continues to grow. I can really help them on exports; to open up those Asia markets in China and Korea. As governor, I want to help them create more jobs to help exports around the world.”

That’s interesting, considering what he had to say about coal in 2009.

We have to move past coal… I never want another coal plant built.

If you don’t believe me, well, here’s the video.

In all fairness, it’s possible he just changed his mind after the spectacular failures of his taxpayer subsidized green ventures.
