HUNTSMAN POUNDS PERRY ON GLOBAL WARMING & FED SLAMS (Huntsman is a DEMOCRAT in Sheep's Clothing)
TheBlaze ^ | 08/21/2011 | Scott Baker

Posted on 08/21/2011 4:07:40 AM PDT by broken_arrow1

WASHINGTON (AP) — Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman is pounding away at rival Rick Perry‘s skepticism of manmade global warming and criticism of the nation’s central banker, saying those stands hurt the GOP and make the Texas governor come off as a not so serious national figure.

Huntsman, a former Utah governor who was President Barack Obama’s first ambassador to China, has trailed in early polls nationally and in early voting states, leading his campaign to pledge more aggressive attacks on the top candidates.

Perry, who entered the race last weekend and has surged to a prominent role, has provided Huntsman with an ample opening to take shots.

Perry said in New Hampshire this past week that he didn’t believe in manmade global warming, branding it an unproven scientific theory. He also defended the teaching of creationism in schools because evolution “has some gaps to it.”

“When we take a position that isn’t willing to embrace evolution, when we take a position that basically runs counter to what 98 of 100 climate scientists have said, what the National Academy of Science has said about what is causing climate change and man’s contribution to it, I think we find ourselves on the wrong side of science, and, therefore, in a losing position,” Huntsman told ABC’s “This Week.”

This strategy (using other GOP members, like McCain, Huntsman and Rove) is becoming the RINO establishment's attack machine for use on 'conservative' GOP candidates? They are fighting for control of the GOP and feel threatened by wave of Tea Party conservatism.

I thought that was suppose to be DNC's Debbie Wiseass Schultz' job. Huntsman obviously wasn't paying attention when Pawlenty attacked Bachmann and paid the price.

Advice for Huntsman - QUIT while you behind!

Huntsperson will end up helping Perry by reminding voters that Perry believes global warming is bull shiite just as they do.

Trailed? He hasn't topped 1% in any recent poll, and has been dead last in 5 out of last 6 national polls.

That would be a joke candidacy. But I guess as long as he trashes conservative ideology he'll get media coverage.

You are correct again.
A billionaire with deep DNC ties, like Huntsman,
would be directed to the stash created
especially for the CONNECTED politicians.

Better NOT hold your breathe waiting for the MSM to report it.

The problem here is that Perry is NOT A CONSERVATIVE. He may look that way compared to Huntsman and Romney but check his record on things such as immigration, vaccines, federal dollars, etc. etc. etc. He has fooled a lot of people here on FR and he is no Bachmann, Palin or West.

In this case they're both full of it.

Gov. Perry Announces TEF Investment in Solar Power Company

AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today announced the state will invest $1 million through the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF) in HelioVolt Corp. of Austin for the construction of a 125,000 square foot manufacturing facility and development space to test and produce the company’s thin-film solar power cells, which convert sunlight into electricity. The deal will create nearly 160 jobs and $62 million in capital investment.

HelioVolt Corp. puts off growth. Plant is ready but demand not there yet

After months of stealthy operations, solar cell maker HelioVolt Corp. has delayed by two years its job creation projections.

Gov. Rick Perry: Wind Energy Keeps Texas' Air Clean and Our Future Bright

Texas doesn't just believe in the potential of wind energy, we are reaping its benefits already. People who talk about wind energy as a technology of the future clearly haven't been to West Texas lately: the future of wind energy in Texas is now. I probably don't need to spend too much time talking about the benefits of wind energy to a bunch of people who specialize in this remarkable technology, but a few things really stand out for me. I am proud that our state's installed wind generation capacity leads the nation, a place we did not reach by accident.

(snip)

Just last year, nearly $3 billion worth of wind-powered electric generators were installed, twice as much as any other state. This addition of more than 1,600 megawatts of capacity bumped up our total wind capacity by 59 percent. And the hits keep on coming. For example, this afternoon, one of the world's largest manufacturers of alternative energy equipment is announcing a new research facility here in Houston. And I recently got word that Hill Country Wind Power has acquired the Wind Turbine Company and is moving their manufacturing operations from Bellevue, Washington to the Lone Star state. With progress like this, I am confident we'll hit the next milestone, 10,000 megawatts, or 10% of our current capacity, well before the deadline in 2025.

When they decided carbon dioxide — plant food — was the main contributor to global warming, I knew they had lost their minds. Instead of going after real pollutants, the EPA is waging war against plant food.

Glen Beck has been telling us how great Huntsman Sr. is for quite a while. Next thing I know Huntsman Jr is in the presidential race.

The strategy for Huntsman to elevate the debate by being strongly fiscal conservative with a serious record at the same time going after the anti-science “know-nothing” wing of the party (creationism etc) is going to win him a LOT of moderate Republican (current Romney), Independent and disaffected Democrat voters.

Just wait and see. :)

Not really.. Some freepers are not freepers.. they are poseurs..
On the other hand no matter the subject some freepers will be against “it”..
If only just to challenge the concept..

Like me, I think Reagan was too liberal... not a well received view..
Some freepers are just contrary.. I love this place..
Why not?.. they are JUST ideas anyway..

Its hard to tell what a freeper really “believes”...
Depends on the day...

After a speech, for example, by Barry Half-White...
Some freepers are looking for something to be against..
Just looking for something to trigger a negative screed..
I’ve done it many times.. using FR for an outlet for frustration.. WELL GOD BLESS THEM(us)..

FR sometimes keeps us sane... kinda..

You’re 100% correct. If Perry is elected he will carry on where Obama left off. He is a closet socialist who is out to ruin the country. We need to nominate a REAL conservative who agrees with us on every single issue but has no chance in hell of beating Obama.

The most effective (and, really, the only) way to tear down the myths of global warming is to attack the premise - stated or implicit - that it is human activity that caused, and continues to cause, global warming.

That should be the primary avenue of attack because (1) the basic data regarding the global mean temperature has, in fact, shown at least something of a warming trend of late, and railing against dumb facts and basic realities is something liberals do, not conservatives, and (2) the data regarding the supposed causal relationship of human activity has been demonstrably forged - as has already been proven - and the computer models the global warming cultists use to "prove" their causal beliefs are orders of magnitude weaker than the financial computer models that failed to pick up on the risks of the financial crash that happened in 2008 - if the global warming cult's computer models were used for financial modelling, we'd have a financial crash at least once a month or so.

Basically, don't pick a fight you don't have to; if someone wants to argue the cultists' version of global warming, go right ahead and grant - strictly for the sake of argument, of course - that the mean global temperature is likely rising, and then destroy them on the issue of whether or not that warming trend is being caused by human activity. This should be most effective because (1) the acceptance that the data shows a warming trend - for whatever reason - will throw the global warming cultist off balance, and (2) they simply will not be able to counter-argue the fact that the data on cause have been forged and tampered with, and that the computer models used to "predict" that humans have caused global warming are so fallible that you'd be better off predicting that cause with a coin toss.

I had the misfortune of watching part of ABC World “News” Tonight on Saturday night.

They had an interview with Huntsman, and the reporter was saying that all of the other GOP hopefuls are “fringe” candidates and Huntsman is the mainstream, etc. It was stomach turning.

Thankfully, Huntsman has no chance of getting the nomination. I wouldn’t vote for him if he did. Shame on the Bush family for pushing this guy, Obama-lite.

I’ve recently seen Democrats whining about Huntsman leaving the race on a neutral forum I’m on, which says all that needs to be said. They didn’t believe it when a fellow conservative there commented “Never heard of him.” Which also says a lot.

The 2012 election will unmask all pretend, two-faced Republicans for one and all to see. RINO masks are coming off and now the Tea Party aka We The People can identify and work to send them, name by name, packing in disgrace. The 2012 election is about electing freedom-loving American patriots. If a politician is not an American patriot, they must be exposed and voted out. IMO, RINO Hypocrites aka liars, corrupt politicians aren’t wanted and won’t be tolerated by Americans who love freedom and want a future for their children and grandchildren.

My very liberal daughter-in-law pronounced Huntsman her favorite Republican. I told her he has a chance of a snowball in hell of getting the nomination. Actually, she'd never vote for any Republican, but she wants someone weak enough to get slaughtered by Obama. To her, conservative candidates like Michelle Bachman and Herman Cain are "crazy." She also considers herself an expert on economics. Although she is in reality a very nice person, I have a very hard time not laughing when she talks about economics.
