2010 UPDATE: Senator Byrd Passed Away - and Joe is now in the Senate.
As an FYI: Manchin supported OBAMA. Once OBAMA took office - Manchin did an about face and has been all about "dirty energy" in spite of the Obama Administrations views. Sounds like not only does Manchin screw over WV...he screwed over the President too.
Sound Like Treason or Impeachment to you?
Are you Reading this President Obama? Do you see what he's doing to one of the poorest states in the nation?
ONE: It is painfully obvious that Joe wants to be in the senate. He has stated that he "will not appoint himself" to the Senate.
We predict that in the sad event that something would happen to one of our existing Senators - that Joe will "step down" as Governor and have the Lieutenant Governor take over the role as Governor.
The Lieutenant Governor - then acting as Governor - will have the authority and power to "appoint" Joe to the Senate.
TWO: We will continue to burn every rock of coal that we can get our hands on until it is gone and because of this, the people in power keep their power and the people with the money - will make more money. Too bad for the rest of the state.
THREE: The number of coal jobs will continue to decrease as we rely more on mountain top removal mining methods. Bye Bye Wild Wonderful West Virginia.
