It’s unlikely that United Mine Workers of America president Cecil Roberts thought he would be arrested protesting the energy policies of the very politician his union supported in 2008. But things have come full circle for coal miners, who now see President Obama’s climate agenda threatening their livelihoods.

Roberts and other UMWA members were arrested Thursday marching through Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, towards the federal building the Environmental Protection Agency was holding field hearings for a new rule that could very well force more coal mines and plants to shut down.

Roberts was leading about 5,000 coal miners, their families and supporters to show the EPA that coal miners, boilermakers, electric workers and other unions did not support the Obama administration’s new regulations limiting carbon dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants.

“This was an expression by the leadership of the union and the solidarity for our members when our jobs are on the line … it’s what it’s all about,” Roberts said while being arrested.

Who ever the Dems nominate they will support them. They will not learn and do not want to.

I've been reminding them every chance I get on facebook that elections have consequences.

Does anyone think they will change, and support someone other than a democrat in '16?
Link Posted: 8/3/2014 5:36:06 AM EDT
Fuck them. They'll do the same thing in 2016.

FPNI.

I'm glad they have finally seen the light and I welcome them aboard the FightObama Express, but I will believe their outrage is genuine when they refuse to support Joe Manchin and Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Any coal miner who supports any Democrat candidate at any level is a complete idiot.

Back when Clinton was first running for president, the union at the factory where I was working was pushing Clinton heavily. If Bush was re-elected he would approve NAFTA and union jobs would be lost.

Yeah, that worked out for them.
Link Posted: 8/3/2014 5:40:25 AM EDT
Surprised they didn't see these energy policies coming.

Obamas nature prior to the election was clear and obvious to anyone who cared to look.

People either didn't look, ignored what they saw, or believed it was all a right wing conspiracy.

What part of "Fundamentally transform America" didn't they get?

Yep. I was in the Boilermakers union for a while at that time. I saw the writing on the wall but the leaders and the vast majority of the members were still solidly behind the administration. Since then one coal fired power plant has closed and the others are about to. I really want to stop in the union hall some day and ask them how that support of Obama is working out for them.

More properly, they're "useful idiots," since they've come to realize their mistake after being thrown under the bus.

At least they're not being sent to mine coal in the arctic ice, I guess.

I don't blame BO. He is and always has been a commie socialist; nothing he has done has surprised me. Idiots like Mike here are to blame. They voted the clown in. All I can say is I hope their lives are miserable enough to understand it is in there best interest to think next time they vote.
And Mike, if you are out there somewhere jobless living with your parents, I just want you to know, when I think of BO, my anger is channeled to all the idiots like you who voted for him. FU Mike.

They endorsed him in 2008 knowing full well his agenda. During the 2012 campaign they didn't endorse the Kenyan, but they called Mittens a waycist.

The words even told them of the sodomization they were in for. If that's not the epitome of stupid, I don't know what is.

Every bit this.

I remember a worker in my former employer's cafeteria as being smug as shit when HER candidate won in '08. White-guilted, progressive little thing who was certain "change" was now coming.

It definitely did for her. Shortly after the subsequent stock market bobble and enforced austerity measures which resulted, she was let go.

I remember the cognitive dissonance most union members had during the Solidarity uprising in the early '80s.

Union leadership knew exactly who they were getting in bed with and the union membership follows the orders of their union leadership like lemmings off a cliff.

That part in bold? I think you're giving them too much credit. They'll continue to support the communists, no questions asked.

They lose their jobs? Well, the State will give them food and housing. Don't you dare to question that. And as fulltime wards of the State, they'll fight against anybody who raises the subject of welfare reform. And as is the way of unions, commit terrorist acts and murder.

Ignorant fools.

Nope, just human nature: Some people are so eager to get free stuff they ignore all the possible negative consequences of their decision.

Union members voted for Obama on the assumption that his policies would affect everyone but them.

Over a dozen are slated to be closed in NC and VA. There are so many plants be closed that companies are focusing on the work as key bussiness areas.
