The coal miners at the Mitt Romney event tell Obama to stop lying about them. They where not forced to go and they was no pressure. They where glad to host Romney and forcefully tell Obama he is a liar.

Looks like Obama and his liberal propaganda machine got caught lying again.

No surprise.... Obama hates coal.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."

Working americans who made this country great. We have enough energy to last several hundreds of years. Use it and put americans back to work. These people will not bow down to the kenyans fight against them. Chicago politics at its finest. Nothing but lies and spin spread across this country by the liberal news machine.

Remember when a bunch of coal miners were forced take a day off work to attend a campaign event for Mitt Romney in Ohio? Well, the story gets even worse.

The New Republic talked with two sources at Murray Energy, and it turns out that CEO Bob Murray has been pressuring employees to donate to Republican candidates:

"Murray, it turns out, has for years pressured salaried employees to give to the Murray Energy political action committee (PAC) and to Republican candidates chosen by the company. Internal documents show that company officials track who is and is not giving. The sources say that those who do not give are at risk of being demoted or missing out on bonuses, claims Murray denies."

The Murray Energy PAC has donated $175,000 to Republican candidates so far this election cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. In May, Murray held a fundraiser for Romney that raised more than $1.7 million, and The New Republic reports that employees of Murray Energy have raised more than $120,000 for Romney.


Who's lying? RWN's can't handle the truth.

It's hard to swallow the truth when you live on bullsh!t mountain....

Murray Energy Corp. founder Robert Murray told The Dispatch this morning the Beallsville coal

mine he owned was closed for the duration of GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s rally there

this month at the request of the Secret Service.

But Team Romney says the decision to close the mine was Murray’s.

All that’s clear at this point is that the Century Mine, operated by a subsidiary of Murray

Energy in eastern Ohio, was dormant while Romney and U.S. Senate hopeful Josh Mandel addressed a

large crowd of mostly coal miners and their families on Aug. 14. The event was meant to show Romney

as a strong supporter of coal and contrast President Barack Obama as an industry opponent.

There’s also the issue of the stunning visual from the event – dozens of soot-covered coal

miners standing behind Romney as he spoke.

Murray, who attended the Ohio delegation’s breakfast this morning at the Republican National

Convention, said the soot-covered miners had emerged from the Century Mine about an hour before the

program began – at the order of the Secret Service.

“There were 3,000 people there, you can’t have people working underground while an event like

that is going on,” Murray said this morning. The campaign estimated an attendance that day of about


But Chris Maloney, a Romney campaign spokesman, said in an email, “It was Murray Energy’s

decision to close the Century Mine, not the campaign’s or the Secret Service.”

The controversy surrounding Romney’s visit to the mine stems from a group of coal miners

telling a West Virginia radio station that they would not be paid the day of Romney’s visit and

that attendance would be mandatory. A Murray company official told the same radio station on Monday

that managers “communicated to our workforce that the attendance at the Romney event was mandatory,

but no one was forced to attend” – according to a report this morning in the Cleveland Plain


Murray disputed the mandatory attendance order this morning and said the miners were paid “

for the time they were underground” that day. The shift began at 6 a.m. that morning and the miners

emerged around 11 a.m. The mine was re-opened for second shift at 4 p.m.

“They were all there voluntarily. They could’ve gone home,” Murray said. “You don’t pay

people to voluntarily go to a political event. If I would’ve paid them you would be saying you want

it the other way. This is all a bunch of nonsense.”

Murray, whose companies have a history of environmental and safety violations, has blamed

layoffs at some of his mines on Obama’s policies. This morning he said “there were 3,000 coal

miners who are frightened and scared to death that Barack Obama is going to destroy their lives.”

Romney said that day that Murray is a “great boss, he runs a great operation here.”

Service Employees International Union District 1199 – which represents Ohio, Kentucky, and

West Virginia – today called for an investigation by the U.S. Department of Labor Division of Wage

and Hours to determine whether federal law was broken.

Union president Becky Williams noted that the Center for Responsive Politics shows parent

company Murray Energy has donated more than $900,000 to the Republican ticket in the past two


“When there is a clear vested interest of nearly a million dollars to the Republican ticket

by the owners of this energy company, that’s one thing,” Williams said in a statement. “But when

you force your company’s political agenda on hard-working Ohioans, Americans, stripping them of a

day’s wages that are already low to begin with; that’s reprehensible behavior.”

Yeah, sure sounds like Murray cares about his miners...cough, bulls¡t.

Genwal Resources Inc., an affiliate of Ohio-based Murray Energy Corp., denied Thursday that any of the violations led to the deadly collapse, which leveled a section of the Crandall Canyon mine as large as 63 football fields. From the start, Murray Energy chief Bob Murray insisted that the cave-in was triggered by a natural earthquake.

MSHA chief Joe Main disputed the earthquake theory on Thursday and said Genwal admitted it thinned a coal barrier it should have left standing to hold up the mine. He said the company also failed to revise a roof control plan after ignoring early signs of trouble.

"Our investigation found that it was not an earthquake, but the mining plan and the failure to act" that caused the collapse, Main told The Associated Press.

Genwal accepted 17 safety violations, with four of them contributing to the cave-in, he said. The agency dropped another 3 violations related to the collapse of a coal pillar in another section of the mine five months earlier.

"They allowed the mine to deteriorate and ignored warning signs that contributed to the tragedy," Main said.

No, it (like usual) comes down to who you support for President. That's how you determine whether stories are true or not... whether they paint your candidate in a positive or negative light.
