cue another flip-flop

Reuters: …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.”

****

I was, eh, curious to see how Romney’s comments would go down with the Teabagger half-termer-worshiping climate change deniers (you know, those really bright people), so I visited one of their sites …. here’s a taster:

I love it when a rino nails his own coffin shut ….. RomneyCare and now a global warming believer /facepalm ….. Just quit Mitt …. Say “Goodnight” ….. Oh brother. That crowd of 200 will become 2. Buh Bye Romney what an idiot ….. So long, Mitt ….. Dear Mr. Romney – Cut it short now, save your money. You will NEVER be elected by Republicans if you buy that GW hooey ….. Romney will not make it past the first set of primaries ….. Yet another reason not to support this clown …. Nice of him to make it even clearer how stupid and liberal he is ….. Can this guy get any more disgusting? ….. I’ve never seen an entire campaign last only 24 hours. That was fun …. I will never, ever vote for someone who thinks man-made global warming is a reality …. No way in hell will I pull the lever for him. I’ll stay home first!

****

So, that went well.

Expect another Mitt flip-flop any second soon.

    It’s actually quite sad to see the right wing denying what we can all see with our own eyes with the sinking islands, and the massive storms raging across the mid-West. Mitt is having to deny reality. I’m sure he wishes he was a Democrat right now – on the side of sanity, logic and reason…

    Hahahahaha… serves Romney right. Karma as they say is a B—-. He lies and lies about PBO’s Presidency and calls him the worst President in history… Seriously?!!! after GW? It’s amazing to me that there are people in 2011 who still believe that climate change isn’t real. Have they studied the info on weather patterns, how climate change and humans contribute to famine in many parts of Africa and when agricultural and fishing practices are changed, the land becomes more fertile, the sea produces more fish for consumption. The extreme level of heat and blizzards year after year, the data Yahoo! had from a science journal that talked about the changing weather patterns in some areas that went from warm to freezing within the span of a decade. The data on climate change is irrefutable and these nutjobs don’t want to vote for Romney b/c he actually spoke something that resembled truth. Hey, more good news for us.

      Like I said yesterday, Romney has his hands full with that loser bunch of repugs, instead of coming out of the gate so early bashing PBO.

    It is very disturbing that these ignorant fools vote. I met too many climate change deniers knocking on doors two years ago here in ND- they absolutely refuse to recognize facts. It is the oddest thing I’ve come across and I admit to being shocked by this determined lack of knowledge. Anyway poor Romney- he actually tells the truth for once – and these folks cannot handle the truth.

    He says one sensible thing, and the entire right wing goes nuts. Those comments are very telling. He’ll never make it through the Repub primaries. I at one time thought the Republican establishment would make sure he or someone like him would be nominated. I’m beginning to change my mind. I have a feeling the Repubs will nominate someone so far out and crazy that they’ll doom the ticket from the get go. Doesn’t bother me! They live with their heads in the sand.

      At this point, I think they are simply looking for a sacrificial lamb. Just some nobody who can do the time.

      I think their strategy is just to get so much mud flying all over the place, so that President Obama will come out of the election a little sullied himself. They know they can’t win, so the only thing they can do is try and diminish his power and stature by surrounding him with fools. He’s in Lilliput again. And you know what they say – “never argue with a fool; people won’t know the difference”.

    I must admit I have a terrible allergy to Republicans. I never go out of my way to listen to any of them because I know they are full of hot grotesque air. Grand Offensive Polluters. I read about them and I can’t fathom that they are even a party. But last night I accidentally watched a program that featured Mittens’ campaign launch as one of its stories and OMG, what a sad case. What a tragic failure this guy is. He just reeks of has-been and weakness. I didn’t realize how bad he is at this. GEEZE. When you add all these idiots up – Mittens, Gingrich, Pawlenty, Palin, Bachmann, Trump – you really have absolutely NOTHING. Nada. Zip. A total horror show. The right-wing nutjobs are in worse shape than I thought. No wonder they are grandstanding every single day. THEY GOT NOTHIN’.

      I think I suffer from a similar allergy. I tend to fast forward or block out anything they’re saying. It seems toxic, somehow.

      You left out Huntsman from your list. I think he might have been able to struggle through in 2016, as a moderate that could appeal to Democrats and Republicans. And I think the President might even have helped him a little. But, saddled with the Republican primaries – he’s screwed. He’s backpeddling so fast, it’s amusing.

      I actually don’t see any Republican – even the “famed” Jeb Bush – being able to survive the Tea Party onslaught. First, Jeb is a Bush, and there’s no running away from that. And as long as he’s touting the same Republican drivel, then the only product he’s got is a batch of failed Republican policies.

        I didn’t include Huntsman because when you only garner 1 vote in a poll in Iowa, it seems you’re done before the gate is even opened. He’s not getting any traction and I’m beginning to wonder if he will even get in at this point. Who knows, though. Rudy Giulani is talking about running now. LOLz.

      Oh, I forgot Cain, the pizza guy. The one who messed up the concept of “right of return” when asked about the Israel Palestinian negotiations. Someone who has never held elected office and doesn’t understand one of the most important struggles in modern history and admits he doesn’t know that much about foreign policy but will reveal his positions on foreign affairs AFTER he’s elected. That guy.
