Imagine if Rush Had Said This

by Steven F. Hayward

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. calls Obama “An ‘Indentured Servant’ of the Coal Industry.”

I have long wondered whether little Bobby actually kicked his youthful drug addiction. I’ll look forward to other environmentalists disavowing him.

EDITOR’S NOTE: The ABC News headline that prompted this post was a misleading conflation of Robert F. Kennedy quotes.

Kennedy called politicians who support coal “indentured servants of the coal industry” on September 10, 2005; July 7, 2007; December 12, 2008; and January 30, 2009.

Kennedy called Obama “a very sensible [politician]” and a “great [man],” who nonetheless “[feels] the need to parrot the talking points of this industry that is so destructive to our country.”

We regret the repetition of ABC’s error.
