Obama no longer posturing on Enviro-vote

Last month I posted here that Barack Obama was only posturing when he claimed he was considering voting for the Clear Skies Act, which would greatly benefit the coal mining industry, once a major employer in southern Illinois.

His stance was a phony one, in my opinion, as he was playing the media in an attempt to appear "open-minded" and "thoughful" as he prepares for his eventual presidential run.

Well, he voted against that bill yesterday. He follows the party line just like that obstructionist Dick Durbin. Besides, Obama doesn't need much support from southern Illinois to get re-elected.
