President Obama and Sen. Harry Reid have been hard at work looking for candidates to run for U.S. Senate in West Virginia with every major candidate saying no.
After nine months of searching, and exhausting almost every resource, Senator Reid has in fact found a candidate in West Virginia, Natalie Tennant.
But wait a second here. In looking at Tennant's recent trip to visit the EPA, her takeaway comment from the meeting was, "It is hardly surprising that people in West Virginia have assumed the worst about the EPA."
Tennant believes West Virginians "assumed the worst" from a runaway bureaucracy that has imposed the largest job-killing regulations in history and imposing cap-and-trade without congressional approval.
I'd like to see Tennant tell the laid off coal miners and their families that the effects of the EPA are assumed, and we should communicate better with Washington bureaucrats as they destroy our economy and we continue to lose jobs.
Tennant's comments prove that she won't ruffle Obama's feathers by challenging his EPA while taking them on and stop them from enacting job-killing regulation with an economic impact in the trillions without approval from a single lawmaker nor an approval from any West Virginian. No input, not even a head nod from a single coal miner or their families.
There will be a time where West Virginians can give input on the fight against Senator Reid, President Obama, and his EPA's unconstitutional War on Coal. That will be when Natalie Tennant is on the ballot in 2014 and we can say "no" to Tennant and "yes" to Capito.
