So both candidates making a huge energy push right now President Obama is working pretty hard to paint governor Romney.
As an enemy of the forty billion dollar coal industry here's when he sat at a rally yesterday.
He was the -- started in front of a fire plan.
Instead this -- -- me.
Now he's running around.
Talking like he's mister poll did you see what it was about that is due to brought all the debt -- -- -- with -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- There is truth to this with me now in a Fox Business exclusive he's -- box.
The one the president was talking about the CEO Murray energy Robert -- -- so much for joining us and tell us.
Did you force your workers to go out there and stand there with mr.
Of course not -- -- sit and Friday.
From that mind signed.
A letter to Barack Obama.
And said Mr.
President why are you lying.
About 500 coal miners.
What he had done.
It's put that statement in and that in Ohio it's absolute lies.
These miners were outraged -- -- They were -- light caged lions.
-- they spoke out there was not a management person involved in those 500.
Letters they had a press conference.
And they asked him to stop the dad and his stop -- it's not have its true.
Do you have any idea how it got to that point I mean have you heard any response from them at all from the from the president -- from his campaign.
-- no ma'am I have.
What we thought by now he would pull his dishonest dad.
But -- has has not and and our miners.
Are quite outraged about that also they they just -- -- work in honor and dignity -- -- And they felt like -- When these -- were spread by the Democrat party.
And then put into -- a -- a commercial.
And there outraged yes and a lot a -- is a very strong words.
And they said they -- a letter to the president why are you lying about -- That's incredible and I think we do have some of the letter there you know where they basically say that they weren't forced to attend the rally.
No attendance records were capped at the rally for hourly employees there were no penalties -- punishments for the workers who didn't attend.
They are still expecting a response from the president from the campaign an apology of some sort what would make this better for your workers.
Well I think first -- Voller retraction of the -- and then an apology.
But it would also be good if he would just support call -- -- greatest enemy the coal industry has ever had these people are frightened Melissa they're scared.
Their jobs are at stake he has closed down 204 coal fired power plants already in the United States.
How how far the so I'm I'm sorry I just -- -- we hear all the time.
You know the president saying that that he is a friend of coal.
And you say he's not that he's -- he's -- why is he responsible for closing these plants as opposed to.
Maybe the EPA being responsible or cheap natural gas for example why is -- his ball.
When he said.
And plunged in January 17 they can build coal fired plants in America but I'll bankrupt them he's making good on that Joseph Biden said.
No -- in America he owns a lot of debt to the environmental constituency.
Radical -- lead us.
And he's paying those debts back ma'am.
This is not just -- coal mining issue that 95000.
Megawatts it's -- that 204 plans.
That's the four cent a kilowatt hour electricity in America while he promotes his 22 cent a kilowatt hour.
Wind and solar if the wind blows and the sun shines -- it gets 24 dollars.
-- kilowatt hour from the taxpayer what Obama is -- is destroying low cost energy in America.
People are not going to be ought to pay their electric bills.
And people that manufacture.
A product for the global marketplace are not going to compete with China.
Because they've been building a new coal fired power plant every week -- airs at four -- a kilowatt hour.
-- in the PJM inner connection where the utilities some incremental power to themselves.
The part costs for the years 2015.
And sixteen are up 800%.
Eight times he is destroying.
Low cost electricity in America.
How do you credit erroneous constituents how do you -- -- Mitt Romney will will be a true friend of call 'cause he's obviously alleging the opposite.
Well I have spent a great deal of time.
With governor Romney he gets it he is a friend of the coal miner.
But remember those -- 500.
That signed that letter to Obama saying stop -- Base and and they also said in the letter.
That it was a great day and we were honored to have him a friend of coal the miners know.
Robert Murray thank you so much for coming on -- show.
