"The world is getting warmer": Romney
Townhall/Reuters ^ | 6/3/2011 | Ros Krasny

Posted on 06/03/2011 12:30:08 PM PDT by AT7Saluki

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire (Reuters) - Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney broke with Republican orthodoxy on Friday by saying he believes that humans are responsible, at least to some extent, for climate change.

"I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that," he told a crowd of about 200 at a town hall meeting in Manchester, New Hampshire.

"It's important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors."

Shutting his mouth would be a very good start.

Just when I thought I couldn't hate Romney any more, he goes and jumps on the warmer band wagon. If given the choice between Mittens and Obama I'll take Obama. There is no difference in policy and at least with Obama conservatives are united and don't get blamed for the disaster.

It sure didn’t take mitt the twit long to revert to form. Like always, he’ll pander to whatever group he’s in front of and say whatever he thinks they want to hear. Worthless “conservative” poser.

Mitt Romney is running to the left of Obama.
He’s bad news for the Republican Party.

Yep. Sometimes the cost of winning is too high. If we elect a RINO or a Communist the country is equally doomed. If the republic has to burn, at least let the other side take the heat.

I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that" - Mitt Romney

I believe that Mitt Romney is a RINO and that he has zero chance of becoming president. He's distancing himself from conservatives because he knows he won't get our vote and he's hoping to substitute it with votes of 'independents', i.e. nominal Democrats who are disenchanted with Obama. Note to the GOP honchos who plan to impose Romney on Republican voters because it's 'his turn': If Romney or any other squishy RINO like Romney is the Republican party candidate for president in 2012, I'll vote for an independent candidate. Oh, and don't even think about asking me for money - ever.

“Just quit Mitt.”

I hope he continues to run, and pulls in lots of money. There is only a finite amount of stupid leftist money in circulation, and he will drain a noticeable amount of it off where it will do no lasting harm. That said, Romney is enough to make a vulture vomit in disgust.
