RUSH: If you happen to live in Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Colorado, and even parts of Indiana, Barack Obama wants the coal industry in which you work to go bankrupt. He intends to bankrupt it. He also intends to cause skyrocketing energy prices. He made these comments earlier in the year with an editorial board meeting that was recorded, the San Francisco Chronicle. The Chronicle says they reported it. They put it on their website. The newspaper story they did on this did not comment on any of this. You get the point, though, people voting for Obama, I don’t think they care anything about it. I don’t think that the substance of who he is is relevant, otherwise he wouldn’t be above 30%. He’s a symbol of something to a lot of people, and he’s a blank slate and they are making of Obama whatever they want him to be. If he wins this, there is going to be some severe buyer’s remorse, and we see these guys in the media, they’re covering their rear end because if this guy goes far left, they don’t want any blame for it, “We didn’t know. We didn’t know who Obama was, only written two books, aspirational (sic) speeches, don’t know much about him, don’t know who his heroes are, don’t know who his mentors are, we don’t know anything about him,” after they’ve pushed him all of this time. Here is Obama, this is in January of this year in an editorial board meeting with the San Francisco Chronicle.
OBAMA: What I’ve said is that we would put a cap-and-trade system in place that is more — that is as aggressive if not more aggressive than anybody else’s out there, so if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can, it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.
RUSH: He’s gonna bankrupt ’em, he’s got a cap-and-trade program, Algore, this is to save the planet. He’s going to bankrupt ’em, by definition, they will bankrupt. But that’s not, by itself, the single most damaging aspect of what he said. This is. More from RushLimbaugh.com
Sen. John McCain’s Republican campaign is looking to capitalize on an interview in which Sen. Barack Obama proposed placing such heavy government fees on coal plants that the industry would either have to clean its emissions or go “bankrupt.”
“If somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can,” Obama said in an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle. “It’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.”
Publicity over the plan to use “carbon credits” to force the coal industry to either clean up its emissions or get out of business comes on the heels of news that Obama plans to use “price signals” to control America’s energy use, and Republicans have pounced on Obama’s words with an aggressive campaign in the coal-rich battleground states of Ohio and Pennsylvania.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – A federal judge in Ohio has ruled that counties must allow homeless voters to list park benches and other locations that aren’t buildings as their addresses.
U.S. District Judge Edmund Sargus also ruled that provisional ballots can’t be invalidated because of poll worker errors.
Monday’s ruling resolved the final two pieces of a settlement between the Northeast Ohio Coalition for the Homeless and Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner.
The coalition agreed to drop a constitutional challenge to Ohio’s voter identification law until after the Nov. 4 election. In return, Brunner and the coalition agreed on procedures to verify provisional ballots across all Ohio counties.
The coalition was concerned that unequal treatment of provisional ballots would disenfranchise some voters. From the Columbus Dispatch
