Hillary Clinton Eats Crow Over Coal Comments

Hillary Clinton caught heat in West Virginia, where hecklers shouted "Go home, Hillary!" (AP)

Hillary Clinton: Just a Minute!
Editorial, Investor's Business Daily: Election 2016: After vowing to kill coal jobs, Hillary Clinton is now trying to recast herself as Sissy Spacek in “Coal Miner’s Daughter.” But coal workers ain’t buying it, and she’s hearing their wrath while campaigning in West Virginia.

At a CNN town-hall-style forum in March, Clinton asserted: “We’re going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.”

Coal country hasn’t forgotten the threat from the Democratic front-runner.

A laid-off coal miner earlier this week confronted Clinton over her derogatory statement during a campaign stop in West Virginia, which holds its Democratic primary May 10.

“I just want to know how you can say you’re going to put a lot of coal miners out of jobs, and then come in here and tell us how you’re going to be our friend, because those people out there don’t see you as a friend,” said Bo Copley, his voice breaking.

Nodding sympathetically, Clinton replied, “I know that, Bo.”

She called her earlier remark “a misstatement.”

“I don’t know how to explain it other than what I said was totally out of context from what I meant,” Clinton implored. “Because I have been talking about helping coal country for a very long time.”

Please. What Clinton has been doing for “a very long time” is condemning coal miners and their employers as the world’s worst polluters. And now she expects to win their vote? As Copley later told a reporter: “Supporting her hurts you.”

This takes Clinton’s famed arrogance to new heights.

Now that she needs their vote, suddenly she’s presenting a plan to “help” coal miners — by giving them “clean” solar panel jobs. You mean like all those Solyndra jobs Hillary’s boss failed to create — at taxpayers’ expense?

President Obama’s Solyndra boondoggle cost taxpayers only about half a billion dollars. In the off chance Clinton could even retrain coal miners to make solar panels, the new jobs would be highly subsidized — and they still wouldn’t replace the top wages paid to skilled operators at coal mines.

So this is social engineering at its worst. Hillary might as well be saying: “I’m going to throw you out of work because I don’t like your industry, and I’m going to make you work for a politically correct industry that’s not economically feasible. But who cares, for this is the direction state central planners like me, in our infinite wisdom, decree the nation must go.”

The coal country dust-up reveals a major vulnerability for Democrats as they try to hold on to the White House. They’re clearly no longer popular there.

On Monday, Clinton was met in Ashland, W. Va., by hecklers who shouted “Go home, Hillary!” Later on, hundreds of protesters stood in pouring rain, waved Donald Trump signs and chanted “Kill-ary” as Clinton toured a health center in Williamson, W. Va.

Trump, now the presumptive GOP nominee, pounced on Clinton’s growing weakness in Appalachia.

“I watched her three or four weeks ago when she was talking about the miners as if they were just numbers and she was talking about how she wants the mines closed and she will never let them work again,” Trump said after winning Indiana.

“Let me tell you: The miners in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, which was so great to me last week, and Ohio and all over, they’re going to start to work again, believe me,” he vowed. “You’re going to be proud again to be miners.”

Ohio and Pennsylvania voted for Barack Obama in both the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections. But if miners there scorn Clinton like they are in West Virginia and Kentucky, Democrats could suffer a reversal of fortune in the region that could be the pivotal factor in this election.
