SO OBAMA IS NOW FREE TO MAKE REFERENCE TO MINERS “BEING WITH THE LORD”?
In excerpts of Obama’s remarks released by the White House early Sunday while the president vacationed in North Carolina, he pledged changes to an industry that provides valuable jobs in once-thriving mine country and a needed source of energy.
“We cannot bring back the 29 men we lost. They are with the Lord now,” Obama said. “Our task, here on Earth, is to save lives from being lost in another such tragedy. To do what must be done, individually and collectively, to assure safe conditions underground.”
IT IS UNCLEAR TO ME FROM THE ARTICLE WHO SAID THE WORDS BELOW, OBAMA OR BIDEN, BUT ONCE AGAIN WE HAVE THEM SPEAKING OF THE AMERICAN DREAM…WHICH THEY, OF COURSE, DON’T BELIEVE IS POSSIBLE TO OBTAIN THESE DAYS. THEY ARE ALSO ON RECORD AS SAYING THAT IT WAS A FARCE AS WELL AS A SELFISH GOAL IN THE FIRST PLACE.
“These miners lived — as they died — in pursuit of the American dream.”
