The ONLY promise Obama will keep. He PROMISED you all "quadrupled utility rates" so start getting ready to pay for it. You ignorant nonthinking stupid liberals don't even believe Obama when he SAYS IT HIMSELF. How stupid can you all be? Obviously more stupid than anyone else. How you going to pay your electric bill now??

I should have guessed by the title this would contain inaccuarcy. The % of Maga-Watt Hour electricity generated by coal in the US was less than 50% in 2007 (48.5%) & 2008 (48.2%) according to EIA data. Thus, it is not true that "When he (Obama) took office, more than half the power generated in the U.S. came from coal," as the editorial tries to ascert. Actually, coal, by MWH produced, has not been 50% or greater in electric generation since 2003. Does this mean GWB had a war on coal too? h t t p://w w w.eia.g o v/electricity/data.cf m#generation

Perhaps rather than politics being the reason for coal's lower use, market forces are the real primary cause; natural gas MWH generation % increases almost always have cooincided with the same % of coal decrease. NAH, that doesn't make as good a headline and takes research; its Obama's fault.

The mid-2012 data was cherry-picked as well. The % cited is accurate, but it raised to 37.4% for the entire year.
