While other Republicans are running from the truth, he is sticking to his guns in the face of the anti-science wing of the Republican Party:Oh boy, talk about the kiss of death. Mitt Romney's conservative bona fides is already suspect by many in the Republican base. How can it not be with so many flip-flops and the creation of ObamaCare's father RomneyCare. Adding to conservatives' suspicion of Mitt Romney is Romney's new support for Global Warming. A support he has stuck to as well. Now the chief charlatan of the Global Warming hoax, Al Gore is giving Mitt Romney a big Kudos!
“It seemed like a straightforward question on a second-tier issue: Would Mitt Romney disavow the science behind global warming?”
“The putative Republican presidential front-runner, eager to prove his conservative bona fides, could easily have said what he knew many in his party's base wanted to hear.”
“Instead, the former Massachusetts governor stuck to the position he has held for many years -- that he believes the world is getting warmer and that humans are contributing to it.”
If conservatives ever need more proof that they should think long and hard about having a President Romney, this is it.
Romney has said: I don’t speak for the scientific community, of course, but I believe the world’s getting warmer. I can’t prove that, but I believe based on what I read that the world is getting warmer. And number two, I believe that humans contribute to that. I don’t know how much our contribution is to that, because I know that there have been periods of greater heat and warmth in the past but I believe we contribute to that.Romney stuck by the words too. At the next debate, I sure wish one of the other candidates would ask Romney just how he squares his comments with news released today that the earth maybe headed towards another ice age.
Seeing Romney explain himself sure would make for an interesting debate.
