Romney Believes In Anthropogenic Global Warming — Reduces Presidential Chances To Zero

by Ben Hoffman

(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.”

Right-wingers are told to not believe in man’s contribution to global climate change and they are adamant about it. Although the vast majority of scientists agree that man is contributing to climate change, any scientist who denies it is good enough “proof” that it’s not real.

So Romney has three strikes against him: He’s a Mormon. He implemented the health reform in Massachusetts in which “Obamacare” is based. And he believes in global warming.

He’s also smart, logical, and doesn’t seem to be overly religious. Therefore, to a right-winger, he’s not one of them. There’s no way in hell they’re going to make him the Republican candidate.

  1. Americans aren’t going to support someone who’s apparently no better than the domestic enemies currently trying to rule our nation, so you’re right in saying that Romney has no chance.

  2. And you forgot he has magic religious underpants as compared to some politicians who posted theirs on Twitter and have to settle for just flannel gray briefs.

  3. Anthropomorphic? Doesn’t that something about cute animals? I think you mean anthropogenic.

    • Thanks for that, ‘here’. You’re right. Anthropomorphic involves giving human characteristics to things like weather and non-human animals. Anthropogenic means caused by humans.

      So right-wingers are comfortable with anthropomorphic climate but not anthropogenic climate change. šŸ™‚

  4. Not really, Ben. It’s you Liberals who ascribe human characteristics to what are obviously less than human things.

  5. Mr. Hoffman ,

    And maybe you can give an example of how Romney being a Mormon is a factor in denying his nomination ? Can you say red herring ?

  6. Mr. Hoffman ,

    Wow a sense of humor . You will need it as we get closer to election 2012 and the unemployment rate is still not super good . I just cannot figure out what went wrong . What I find fascinating is that as the President looks weaker , guys like Guiliani and Perry are reconsidering the decision of not running . Like I have said umpteen times , weakness gets attacked . Either in politics or national security .
