Watch this video of a coal miner about to be put out of work by the EPA as he politely asks Democrat Secretary of State Natalie Tennant why she supports Barack Obama.
She won’t answer him and while a policeman lurks in the background, a fat guy jumps in nastily and puts the poor guy off.
Typical fat thug – not letting the lame Dem tell this guy why she would let the EPA and Obama destroy the coal industry. Disgusting.
But wait – it seems like fat ass spoke a little too soon and a little out of turn:
From the Charleston Daily Mail:
Maj. Gen. Allen Tackett, the retired head of the West Virginia National Guard, misspoke when he made the statement Saturday in Logan before a Democratic campaign event, Tennant campaign spokeswoman Jenny Donohue said.
“The general misspoke. Natalie does not support the majority of the president’s policies,” Donohue said Monday evening.
“The only thing that influences Natalie Tennant’s policies is what’s right for the people of West Virginia. She’ll stand up to the president when he’s wrong, and she’ll work with anyone who’s willing to do what’s right for West Virginia.”
That’s not what fat boy said now, was it? But boy, it got her away from the coal miner, didn’t it?
Obama and the carbon emission standards recently proposed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are not popular in the state. The Tennant campaign has repeatedly criticized the proposed standards and consistently tried to distance itself from the Democratic leader.
After first lady Michelle Obama said in November 2013 it was “critical” to elect Tennant, the campaign was quick to say the statement was not an endorsement. More recently, Tennant aired a campaign advertisement where she symbolically shuts off the lights at the White House to make sure Obama “gets the message” she disagrees with his energy policies.
The Tennant campaign also opposes expanded federal background checks for gun purchases — an issue championed by Sen. Joe Manchin after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School — and a delay of the employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, Donohue said.
But in fact she does support the majority of Obama’s policies. She always has. But like rats – anybody running for the Senate,like she is – is running away from Obama.
The campaign for Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, Tennant’s GOP opponent in the Senate race, has consistently pointed to Tennant’s support of the president in the 2008 and 2012 elections in arguing Tennant is “out of touch” with West Virginians.
“Natalie Tennant might not be willing to tell the truth about her strong support of Obama and his policies, but her campaign chairman is,” campaign spokeswoman Amy Graham said Monday.
“The more Natalie Tennant tries to dodge her record of defending Obama’s anti-coal agenda, the more voters will see just how wrong she is for West Virginia.”
Is anyone in the Democrat Party able to tell the truth about anything?
