By the Left Coast Rebel "I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that." "It's important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors."
Rightklik already touched on this topic (with a superb scientific touch), doing a much better job than I could in refuting that actual facts behind Romney's Globe-bull-warming defense but I have to add my two cents.
How much more proof do tea partiers, libertarians, independents, true conservatives and anyone that wants to scale back the big-government that threatens our way of life need that Mitt Romney is not a "serious" candidate for our times?
Key quotes from Romney, while campaigning in New Hampshire, via Reuters:
This makes me so angry but on the other hand, I would rather see Mitt Romney out-and-in-the-open like this right off the bat. Ceding a key Marxist-left philosophical point like "reducing our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases" is an instant disqualifier for me and should be for anyone that is serious in saving this nation from economic collapse at the hand of progressive socialists and the Republicans who co-opt the socialist agenda.
Would this guy stand for some version of Cap and Trade? I bet he would. If you combine this with the fact that he simply cannot be trusted on the most important issue of our times -- the repeal of Obamacare -- a Romney presidency would simply be a perfect-hair version of Obama with an 'R' next to his name.
I'm sorry if that sounds harsh but I am certain of it.
