Speaking to voters in Pittsburgh, Mr. Romney said, “My view is that we don’t know what’s causing climate change on this planet. And the idea of spending trillions and trillions of dollars to try to reduce CO2 emissions is not the right course for us.

October-Romney has "evolved" from the June-Romney who said, 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 … so I think it’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may well be significant contributors to the climate change and the global warming that you’re seeing."

Romney is a used car salesman. I wouldn’t believe anything he says.

Actually, my apologies to all used car salesmen.

Poor Mitt has trouble keeping all his ‘principles’ ummm I mean positions straight. The hurt is coming for him.

If you vote for Romney in the GOP primaries, which one are you voting for? The June-Romney who agreed with “climate scientists,” or the October-drill-baby-drill-Romney?

Romney flip-flopping?

What time is it?

==

Romney is fast becoming the John ‘waffle’ Kerry of 2012. If you don’t like his position on an issue now, just wait a few minutes.

We conservatives know he is a flip flipper. Now that he has flipped on one of the left’s touchstone issues maybe his waffling will get some press.

With such a masterful move, Mittens will no doubt get the gymnast vote.

Sometimes you don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing.

The Great Global Warming Scam is tottering.

If he is the nominee he’s not going to win the election. I don’t see how. The Obama team will eviscerate him and win enough independents to win re-election.

We HAVE TO ensure Romney does not get the nomination.

It’s even easier than that. His “quarterback” for the Mass. Cap and Trade legislation he pushed so hard for is none other than Obama’s Science Czar, Holdren.

Whenever I get to a debate over AGW, I bring up this presentation made by Burt Rutan at Oshkosh.

Thanks. I think his Holdren affair was in 2005.

If I were in Romney’s shoes I would say something nasty about Holdren in the hope that he would publicly retaliate, but Romney would be afraid his stuck-up friends would be horrified.

Maybe he is getting an education from the non-Gore types.
