Yet another quote that must have been taken out of context

The latest, (and why this has only been publicized two days before election day is beyond me) is that Obama has no problem with higher energy prices provided we can develop cleaner coal emissions through a cap and trade taxation policy. Do people realize how detrimental this will be to the U.S. economy? Coal supplies more than half the electricity consumed by Americans. Plus it's one of our biggest exports. So not only does this affect coal state jobs and export revenue, but we will all have the burden of additional increases in energy prices.

Obama speaks for the poor people like I speak Gaelic.
