Add this to the "Saying in San Francisco what he won't say in Pennsylvania" department. In a radio interview with the San Francisco Chronicle back in January, Barack Obama revealed that his carbon cap-and-trade plan would be so aggressive it would bankrupt any effort to build a coal fired power plant and would also cause electricity costs to skyrocket. Here's the audio, in his own voice.
Obama talks about developing clean coal and other alternative energy sources, a worthy goal that should be pursued. But it can't be forced by deliberately hitting the American economy with staggering energy costs.
What else are we going to learn about this guy? This is spreading across the Internet and alternative media. McCain and Palin are jumping on this revelation. It may derail Obama's presidential ambitions. Otherwise, dinner by candlelight may become the norm.
