If all it is is the allure of a Black President then how do you explain the number of voters well over the number of people in the area. You people that sit there and go ga ga over obama make me sick. He has done nothing to help this country and in his second term if we can't impeach him for several reasons, he will kill the energy industry. Coal is already on the chopping block. 100 of the 500 coalfire plants have been shut down. 200 more are on the block this year. What do you people think you are going to use for electricity? Solar and wind can only produce 2.4% of the energy we need.
My suggestion is that you watch Revolution the show on NBC to see what your life will be like.
