    Also, they may be willing to look at who is REALLY responsible for lost jobs and corporate decision-making.I'm sure there is more to lost coal jobs than just blaming Democrats .
    I don't know how this spill will effect the senate race. I haven't seen anything recent on West Virginia. Yeah, there is more than just blaming the Democrats, it is blaming the EPA. In fact that is how most Democrats get elected in West Virginia, they blame the EPA for the loss of coal jobs. Besides, West Virginia is a red state in presidential election only.

    In the West Virginia state Senate the democrats hold a 24-10 lead, in their legislature the Democrats hold a 53-47 advantage, the Democrats have both senators and a governor. West Virginia has voted solidly for Democratic presidential nominees before 2000, but has gone Republican since then. WV went for Clinton twice, they even went for Dukakis.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That would be interesting. I would rather have him as the Democratic nominee than Clinton.

    Yeah, America has more coal than any other country in the world. At least that is what I read. We have the natural resources to become energy independent. We won't though. But if we did just think of all the jobs that would produce here at home and all the money that would stay here in the states instead of going overseas to buy oil and thus providing jobs for the people overseas. It would half our trade deficit, reduce the welfare rolls and have the adTheded value of all these people paying taxes, sending money into the system instead of taking money out of the system.

    If we were energy independent, we could let the middle east go up in smoke for all we care. We wouldn't need to protect the oil over there.

    Just add the oil spill to the growing number of "peripheral influences" in each state this year.
    West Virginia may also be interested in Christie, since Sen. Rockefeller heads that committee.
    Yeah, there is more than just blaming the Democrats, it is blaming the EPA.
    I can't blame Nixon for the EPA since I supported the cleaning up of the Superdumps.
    In fact that is how most Democrats get elected in West Virginia, they blame the EPA for the loss of coal jobs.
    Besides, West Virginia is a red state in presidential election only.
    I believe in attacking an opponent's strength.
    Secretary of State Natalie Tennant needs to stress her state credentials and position Rep. Caputo as the DC insider she is, part of the dysfunction.
    Tennant needs plenty of appearances with supporters Sen. Manchin, Sen. Rockefeller, and Gov. Tomblin .

    You're being purposely obtuse. Someone just pointed out to you that the EPA has had its budget slashed. You know, the guys in charge of checking for stuff like this, don't have the money to send people to check for stuff like this, because you don't like the government shoving its big regulating nose in stuff like this. Are you serious?

    I'm going to go and say that it has far more to do with the way Democrat's changed their civil rights stance in the 60s, however, even that would be false as it swung back and forth for 40 years. Actually, coal production in the US today is several times what it was the 1950s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Our net export is significantly higher today then 5 years ago. So what's this war on coal you talkin' bout?

    And now we have voting rights as my top issue of the 2014 election, determining who wins.
    Voting rights that go back to the Civil rights era that the SCOTUS took away.
