W.Va. doesn’t need Manchin

I thought I was going to choke when I heard U. S. Sen. Joe Manchin say on Fox News he was considering coming back to West Virginia to run for governor. Good Lord, had he not done enough to ruin his home state?

U. S. Senate candidate Joe Manchin famously shot the Obama-supported cap-and-trade bill with a rifle in a 2010 campaign ad, when he survived the tea party wave that was partly fueled by red-state anger at the president’s energy agenda.

Then, Manchin went right ahead supporting Obama! Now, we are looking down the barrel of electricity going up 100 percent! Nice Going Joe … “Washington Joe” – that’s what his opponent John Raese called Manchin.

You know, Raese was right! Now, the state of West Virginia has to set back and see the coal industry ruined – and our West Virginia families will suffer!
