"The world is getting warmer": Romney (Jun 3, 2011)
Reuters.com ^ | Jun 3, 2011 | Ros Krasny

Posted on 05/05/2012 4:12:59 PM PDT by SoConPubbie

(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."

And the Un-Masking of Mitt Romney, the lying, left-wing, Progressive Liberal, continues . . .
 
"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton
 
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan
 
"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792
 
"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams
 
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

You're right, but don't tell that to the Mitt Supporters, you might confuse them as they march after the Pied Piper of Progressive Liberalism.

He just says stuff like this to make people think he is severely conservative. /s

Isn't there any way to broker the convention so we can at least attempt to save this republic?

“I have put our nation on a path to slow, stop, and eventually reverse the growth of our greenhouse gas emissions. In 2002, I announced our first step: to reduce America’s greenhouse gas intensity by 18 percent through 2012. I’m pleased to say that we remain on track to meet this goal even as our economy has grown 17 percent.”

George Bush

But bray, you are talking like a Republican first, and a conservative second.

There is nothing, absolutely nothing in Romney's record that recommends him to conservatives.

And the implication is by your comment, that he is everyone's candidate or nominee on FreeRepublic, and I can guarantee, that for a sizable minority on FreeRepublic, he will never be our nominee or candidate because of his lying, left-wing, Progressive Liberal record.

Give it up Con, Romney is the Republican nominee, and either he or Obama will be the next president.

With Obama, you get $8 gasoline, a Marxist Supreme Court, trillions in deficits for your grandchildren, paper mache' cars that will kill thousands of them each year, death panels that will limit YOUR life, and poverty for everyone.

Is Mitt turning into Santorum? The issues are jobs, taxes, jobs, spending, jobs, borrowing, jobs, regulation.

Saying something that is not only stupid but off message makes it doubly stupid.

Yes people change, but this guy is shameless in doing so. The man has held so many different positions on the same issues that he could fill an hour debating himself. He is 100% pandering BS.

Truth is that he is a blue blood liberal north eastern RINO. Not worth the time it would take to pull the lever for him (not that I would ever consider).

How anyone can vote for this clown and still can themselves Conservative baffles me.

What a sickening bunch of looney tunes they’ve become.

I am really sick of this idiotic argument that anyone not voting for Romney is voting for Obama. I vote for whom I vote for, and this year I will vote third party.

I don't understand how anyone who believes in the Conservative movement can vote for this clown. I believe that the Conservative movement will be dealt a near-fatal blow if Romney is the President. I believe Romney will nominate liberal judges, expand entitlements, raise taxes and do just about everything else Obama might do, only with Romney it may be to a lesser extent. So if you want this pandering liar for your leader you vote for him, as for me I will vote my conscience and be true to my values.

Now consider if Obama wins in 2012 he will do so because Romney is such a horrible candidate. Romney is a blue blood pandering fraud with the personality of a fish. If Romney loses in November it will be because he failed to convince enough people he was worth the vote. This will be despite the fact that we were all assured by the GOP E that he was the ONLY one who could beat Obama.

So if you need someone to blame try blaming the morons who voted for this clown, and the party establishment that ensured no other choices survived.

You don’t need to convince me that Romney is a lousy candidate for the GOP. What I need to be convinced of is that there is a scenario where the next President can be someone other than Obama and Romney.

We haven't heard this in the last year from Romney. I hope he's had a chance to review what's happened since this statement.

I can accept him saying 'humans may have contributed to it. I can accept the concern for pollutants, but please don't go much further.

I don’t know any Mitt supporters, just people who have been left with the choice of Obama returning or voting for Romney.

My question is, where were all these Mitt haters when he was running against Newt, a man who could have won.

They set Newt up for a killing and got Romney appointed candidate , NOW they hit on Romney.

It’s BS.

I will vote for anyone who MAY be able to beat Obama, I don’t intend to piss my vote away on some unknown and cut off my nose to spite my face.
