Gore lauds Romney on climate position By Jordan Fabian - 06/15/11 01:17 PM ET
Former Vice President Al Gore on Wednesday praised GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney for his acknowledgement of global climate change.
Gore, who has championed climate issues since losing the 2000 presidential race, posted a note on his blog that praised Romney for being consistent on his position that humans have contributed to rising global temperatures.
"Good for Mitt Romney though we've long passed the point where weak lip-service is enough on the Climate Crisis," Gore wrote. "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."
Gore's message could further provoke conservatives, some of whom objected last week after Romney reiterated his position at a town-hall meeting in New Hampshire.
Bye-bye, nomination, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh said on his radio last Tuesday, The Washington Post noted.
President Obama and other Democrats have also named the healthcare reforms Romney sought as Massachusetts governor as a template for the new national healthcare law.
But as Gore suggested, Romney and he disagree over how to fix the problem. Gore favors a cap-and-trade energy policy whereas Romney opposes one.
We dont call it America warming," Romney said, according to the Post. We call it global warming."
Romney initially favored a regional cap-and-trade program as governor, but eventually pulled Massachusetts out of the agreement over economic concerns.
Gore offered Romney similar praise last year after the former Massachusetts governor reiterated his position in his memoir, No Apology.
They deserve each other.
It looks like Gore wants his old job back.
Gore gives Mittens a big, fat sloppy wet kiss. Outstanding!
Mittens, please explain how a factor that constitutes 0.117% of the greenhouse effect can be mitigated to stop global warming.
Just what Romney needs, an endorsement from the Unabomber.
Gee, this is really touching.
Has Mr. Gore continued with his global eating position?
“Gore Lauds Romney.” It’s a clue.
What an endorsement! Mittens and Goreacle in a deadly embrace.
Perhaps the two can get together to discuss Chakra.
It’s all over for Mitt now.
I love it!! The more these libtards compliment romney, the better off we are!!! He’ll be gone by fall.
Algore, thank you for giving Romney the kiss of death.
Meanwhile, on wattsupwiththat.com a discussion on the global cooling implications of the recent drop in solar activity continues....
It will be fascinating to watch the Left switch gears when they eventually realize that all the control-freaking has to be done on the global cooling side of the argument because they can no longer sell global warming.
Hope it doesn’t happen though. I much prefer the warmer winters of 5-10 years ago than the snow-filled ones we’ve gotten for the past four years here in Wisconsin. Another little Ice Age will have me looking harder at Arizona.
Romney dealt his fate with Romneycare and sealed it with his recent global warming comments. The Right is in no mood for more global control experimentation.
“Gore lauds Romney on climate position”
This man simply cannot be our nominee.
So far he has the Obama endorsement, the Gore endorsement, and the Rove endorsement, this Romney fella sounds like a trancendent figure.
Are people still happy no one attacked the media’s frontrunner Mitt RINO during the debate? Is THIS who we want representing conservatives on the national stage? This all looks horrible.
Of all of the Republican contenders for the nomination, only one has been praised by Algore and Obama. Sounds like Romney’s racking up the endorsements...
