Posted on 10/14/2011 4:49:04 PM PDT by Kaslin
Campaigning: The GOP front-runner for 2012 sought advice on global warming and carbon emissions from the president's current science czar an advocate of de-developing America and population control.
Politics is said to make strange bedfellows, but no coupling in our view is more bizarre than when John Holdren, now President Obama's assistant for science and technology, once advised GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney on environmental policy.
Holdren's bizarre views are best suited for an adviser to someone like, say, Pol Pot.
He views humanity as a plague on the planet and the Industrial Revolution as a tragic mistake. The fewer people, he believes, the better, and he's not shy about the ways he would use to reduce their number.
Why Gov. Romney, a reasonable person, would pick such a man to advise him on anything is beyond us.
On Jan. 1, 2006, Massachusetts became the first state to regulate CO2 emissions from power plants, something the Obama administration is trying to do to all states through the Environmental Protection Agency's draconian job-killing regulations and mandates.
A Dec. 7, 2005 memo from the governor's office announcing the new policy listed among the "environmental and policy experts" providing input to the policy one "John Holdren, professor of environmental policy at Harvard University."
This is the same person who wrote that a "massive campaign must be launched to restore a high-quality environment in North America and to de-develop the United States."

Romney has promised Goldman Sachs that he’ll resurrect Cap and Trade in exchange for their financial support in this election.
Goldman Sachs will be half the size they are right now if they don’t get Cap and Tax passed in 2013.
All good Americans should Google ‘White Horse Prophecy”, and any and all information on Mormonism. This is so important that we have an informed electorate with everything that is at stake. They mean to take over the government, and then the world!
Who says Slick Willard is reasonable ? He's always been a total fraud who tries to disguise his leftist views from Republican voters.
Why hasn’t someone shown up to declare that Perry is no better than Romney yet? The children must be at dinner.
Because some things go without saying. ;-)
Trying to be open-minded here, WHY would Romney seek advice from some radical anti-American like this guy? I hope Romney’s opponents are aware of this and research it. Such associations are so very typical of Obama who only associates and appoints radicals and extremists like himself especially to his shadow government (Czars, Inc.)
There has to be an answer, whatever it is.
Romney is a cancer on the Republican party.
ur choice on Nov 2012,
Obama or Obama-lite.
Is it 3rd Party time yet?
John Holdren is a hard-core collectivist sociopath.
That Willard ever allowed himself to be associated with Holdren disqualifies him utterly.
Wall Street Journal examines Mitt Romney’s cap and trade policies in Massachusetts
By Brendan Steinhauser on October 06, 2011
The Wall Street Journal’s Jonathan Weisman looks at Mitt Romney’s implementation of carbon caps in Massachusetts. As the headline notes, this policy could add to the other reasons that conservatives have questions about Mitt Romney’s record as governor of Massachusetts.
Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney, whose health-care record as governor of Massachusetts has left him struggling to win the support of conservative voters, now faces another point of vulnerability: his environmental record.
Mr. Romney joined activists outside an aging, coal-fired plant in 2003 to show his commitment to the emissions caps. “I will not create jobs or hold jobs that kill people, and that plant, that plant kills people,” he said.
On Dec. 7, 2005, the Romney administration unveiled the final orders. “These carbon emission limits will provide real and immediate progress in the battle to improve our environment,” then-Gov. Romney said in a press release touting Massachusetts as “the first and only state to set CO2 emissions limits on power plants.”
It might be time to check out the Cain Train.
We must make it clear top the GOP that we do not want him as the nominee
The fatal flaw.
Look who is kicking Romney’s backside:
This Holdren character was creepy enough without being associated with Ehrlich. Given that association, why would Romney ever even allow himself to be in the same room with the guy?
Frankly, I don’t think there is much chance of Mormons taking over the government, and then the world! The Left would never allow it. The possibility of Muslims taking over the government and then the world, however, is not so far fetched. The Left in our country and in Europe is in complete denial about the dangers of Sharia law and seem to be going out of their way to allow Muslims to have their way. Any opposition to them is defined as bigotry.
Mittens must be denied the nomination.
I wonder how this Romney photo will go over with Occupy Wall Street idiots :
I got a Romney fund raising letter today. He got my name from the GOP. I called them and told them (GOP) that I no longer wanted to be associated with them.
Well, Google “The White Horse Prophecy”. Memoriam is very similar to Islam in many ways. In fact, Joseph Smith proclaimed himself the new Mohammad! The one world religion will be either Mormon or Islam, and the Left IS the Establishment! The Mormons intent is worrisome. Ignore it at your own peril.
I would hold my nose and cote for Perry over Romney, I THINK, only if Cain is no longer in the race.
Simple solution to Romney: Vote for Cain!
I had a call from his campaign and I nicely told them I was sorry, but I was not going to vote for Romney.
It is obvious that Romney can’t break above 25% right now, and the R Establishment is struggling to divide the conservative vote. Cain would be a good President, and Perry would be much better than his detractors on FR claim. If for some reason Bachmann bounces to the top again, I’d be happy with her. Anybody but Romney or Huntsman...
Yes, Willard is worse than Perry.......the same way a leg amputation at the hip is worse than losing a leg at the knee.
A report came on Fox during the “Breakfast Club” time at the local diner in my rural/agricultural area concerning Mr. Holdren’s suggestion of sterilants in public drinking water to control population. Quizzical glances of unbelief were exchanged all around.
Finally, one crusty old cattle farmer said, “If you have gotten yourself into such a shape that you depend on the government to supply something so critical to your life as your water, YOU OUGHT TO BE STERILIZED!”
Imagine how much better shape we would be in forty years if everyone who had lost their connection to the land in this country stopped reproducing! (sorta half-sarc)
Is Romney a neo-Malthusian like Holdren?
I don’t particularly doubt you, but I wonder if you’ve a source on that.
I was in the Cain camp before Perry even appeared on the scene. I have a problem with Perry’s immigration policy, his pro stance on the NAFTA highway, and that his state may be teaching Islam in the public schools, as will the public schools in my own state.
Career politicians got us to where we find ourselves today in America! I think Congress should have term limits imposed upon it, 3 terms for the House and 2 three year terms for the Senate with no life time pensions. Every one of the GOP candidates but one on the debate stage are career politicians.
The GOP seems far more comfortable with losing than they are with fielding a conservative candidate.
