Who is the more believable articulator of Obama/Biden’s coal policy?

Leo Gerard, the (Canadian) president of the United Steelworkers union? (Via Obama spokesflack @BenLaBolt)

Mr. Obama is committed to protecting clean air and clean water for our families while also helping the coal industry.

Or would it be… actually, hold on a second.  WHO ASKED foreign-born and foreign-national union leader Gerard his opinion on the 2012 American Presidential election?  WHY did the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette avoid noting that Mr. Gerard is not an American citizen?  And why is an official campaign surrogate like Ben LaBolt uncritically propagate an article where a FOREIGNER went on to directly attack an American politician?
