Bowles Simpson! He should've brought that up and said it was the President's own bipartisan committee and he ignored it....

I'm not positive, but doesn't clean coal refer to anthracite (vs. bituminous)? Anthracite burns VERY cleanly compared to bituminous coal. I burn it to heat my house in the winter & there's zero smoke or odor coming from my chimney.

Romney's strategy is the flip flop. You can't attack his positions if he disavows them.

Jim Lehrer is an awful moderator. Denying Mr. Romney a chance to respond.
You're joking right? He's letting Romney say shit whenever he wants to cut in while pretending to oppose it.

There isn't enough anthracite (hard) coal. Most plants burn bituminous. "Clean coal" refers to scrubbers on the stacks after the fact, etc., but in reality is an oxymoron.

"He's going to kill Children's television, you might as well kiss Burt and Ernie goodbye"

What channel are you watching . . . the fantasy channel?
That's actually a channel now. "Discovery Fantasy" something or other.

Claiming that a "revenue neutral tax cut" is going to encourage job growth is the definition of cognitive dissonance.
