Romey Bows Out of Presidential Campaign


Effectively



"The world is getting warmer": Romney

By Ros Krasny

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire | Fri Jun 3, 2011 12:52pm EDT

(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.


I'm with Bryan Preston of PJM's Tatler on this: "Stick a fork in Mitt?"  Between this and his inability to admit error with regard to Romeycare?  Hell yes.

Wow.  That's two "mainstream" Republicans who've shot their campaigns in the head in a mere three week span more than a year from the election...

UPDATE: Commenter "Bob" also points to Romney's endorsement of Ethanol subsidies in the comments.  The common thread (Romney Care, AGW, and Ethanol subsidies) is Big Government.  We've had way too much Big Government, and don't need a Big Government champion as the GOP nominee.

Well, McCain also bought into the global warming myth (not to mention amnesty for illegals) and in '08 he won the nomination quite easily, despite the loud protestations of talk radio and the Internet. Keep in mind that not everyone who votes in GOP primaries uses single-issue or double-issue litmus tests.

This his a historically-weak GOP field. Within that context Romney is the most serious candidate. By far Romney has the most money and the most effective fundraising mechanisms. Romney also by far is the most formidable general election candidate among those Republicans who've declared.

If Palin doesn't run Romney probably wins the nomination if nothing else by default. Even if Palin runs don't be utterly shocked if Romney winds up the nominee.

jim m:

Yeah, but things have changed some since McCain won. McCain won because the predominant current in the GOP was that it was his turn. Just like Dole back in 1996 he was nominated not because he was the best candidate but because it was his turn.

Today the public is far more engaged. The stakes are very high. We are facing economic collapse and potential hyperinflation. The housing market has collapsed in historic fashion and shows no signs of recovery.

As far as AGW goes the climategate episode has occurred and public opinion in the US might lag that in Europe where belief in global warming has inverted from its previous levels. People don't believe that strongly in global warming and despite the medias promotion of it people are far more concerned about the economy. Romney's attempt at triangulation on the issue will not help him.

On top of that Romney has Romneycare. obamacare is deeply unpopular and Romneycare will drag Mit down eventually. Nobody is going to trust him on healthcare. He cannot disavow Romneycare and nothing short of that will help him.

Paople do not want a kinder, gentler socialism. They want the government to get out of the way and let them live their lives again.

I felt in 2000 that Yosemite Sam was foisted on us by MiniTru and the GOP establishment, MiniTru because he was acceptably liberal* IF he won and the GOP because (as you say) it was his turn. I think that there is a similar situation now. Mitt gets the nomination because MiniTru and the GOP establishment have decreed that he's the best candidate in the field. His history and recent statements make it clear that, like McCain, he is acceptably liberal so that the left can live with him IF he wins. Not that they want that, you understand; they are merely hedging their bets.

And Hey! That Sarah Palin has turned out to be one really smart woman! I'm so glad this blog is supporting Palin with repeated posts this week praising her strateregizing on the whole "I'm not running -- we're just on vacation" plan of hers.

Her latest stop was Boston's Old North Church, site of Paul Revere's famous "Two if by Sea" lantern signal.

Sarah said this: "He who warned the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms by ringing those bells and, um, making sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells that, uh, we were going to be secure and we were going to be free."

She's an idiot. It's just that simple.

So... maybe Donald Trump will reconsider running? Huck the Hick is reconsidering... says God told him to keep his options open.

It doesn't get any funnier than this. Except for maybe the comments defending her.

I´m afraid Romney has disqualified himself from being a bona fide wingnut, by not ridiculing or attacking science, ala Limbaugh, as a socialist menace, since

97 out of 100 scientists believe in man-made climate change.

This data comes from a new survey out this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The study found that 97 percent of scientific experts agree that climate change is "very likely" caused mainly by human activity.

Next thing Romney he will be saying (well nye impossible for him) that he believes in evolution; then, he really would be off the reservation.

I wonder about the study Steve links to when it claims that 97% of climate scientists back the IPCC conclusions when he scientists that produced the data for that report rejected the political summary in the same report.

I would also point out that it claims that those surveyed were the most frequently published when the climategate emails demonstrated that leaders in the community were actively using their position to prevent research contradicting their views from being published.

Not surprisingly, belief in global warmism in Europe, where the climategate scandal was actually covered, is far less than in the US.

Well Art, it looks like you are not the only liberal to, er, step on his wiener while leaping to castigate Sarah Palin today. On LegalInsurrection blog, William A. Jacobson, Associate Clinical Professor, Cornell Law School, has a few things to say in response to those who would never think of apologizing to Palin, not even if they ran into her while laughing mindlessly in their cars at her supposed error. Among those statements is this one which hopefully might open your eyes a bit more than they are at present.

[This account in "Paul Revere's Ride" by David Hackett Fischer (Oxford University Press 1994), may be of interest to Think Progress and all the others laughing because they purport to be so much better informed than Palin:

"A townsman remembered that 'repeated gunshots, the beating of drums and the ringing of bells filled the air.'.... Along the North Shore of Massachusetts, church bells began to toll and the heavy beat of drums could be heard for many miles in the night air."]

Steve does not even understand how big Romney's blunder is, so I will try to set the stage.

Apart from all the lies and hysteria about CLIMATE CHANGE (cue the ominous music and Alec Baldwin as AlGore voiceover), the election is like this:

The President currently has seriously damaged the economy through giveaways to unions and hard-left special interests;

The current President has given away hard-won credibility in foreign affairs, spitting on our long-time allies while vapidly promising the moon to our enemies;

The current President even denies disaster relief to states and counties he considers personal enemies;

The current President has made no effort to propose a budget that seriously addresses the massive debt;

The current President has forced a health plan on the nation that was not wanted by the people, which is opposed by doctors, hospitals, insurance providers and hated by the 95% of the public who already have coverage whcih was just fine, thank you;

and Romney follows his copy-cat healthplan support by talking about weather.

I have to concur with DJ @ #27. Even if Romney felt suddenly freed with no opponent to his left, embracing such policies as government health care, ethanol subsidies, and man-made global warning [Pop Quiz: the last year which was warmer worldwide than the previous year was what?] would be exactly the wrong strategy. He should then be running to his right for the primaries, and if he needed to tack back center here and there for the general there was plenty of time.

It's almost as if he's contracted Mark Sanford Syndrome without the hottie. I still believe the root of Sanford's self-inflicted wounds was a deep desire not to have to run for President. Mitt's marriage is still intact, but he really had no out with the massive fundraising apparatus he's built, so self-destruction is his quickest chance to end it early.

Bad history isn´t any more effective or persuasive than bad science.

Evil Otto:

Your screen name really is appropriate, Borg Nine. Like the borg, you do not think, do not question. You are told that the planet is warming. You believe it. And when that turns out not to be the case, the same people making the claim smoothly change their stories and vocabulary (from global warming to "climate change"), and you believe it again.

Real science does not work that way.

Yes, sanity and attention to empirical data are not wanted in the Republican Party.

What empirical data? In case you haven't been following the issue lately (and I'm sure you barely do), much of the "empirical data" does not show that the Earth is warming, and many of the climate models have used data that was suspect (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Climatic_Research_Unit_email_controversy) or flat-out manipulated.

Global Warming isn't science. It's religion. Its priests (like Al Gore) tell the masses that they must alter their lives to avoid the oncoming judgment day while they live lavish lifestyles, fly in private jets, and live in huge energy-sucking mansions.

They don't believe what they preach. So why should we?

Tell you what, drone... if you can get Gore and the rest of these celebrity doomsayers to live their lives as if they believe the crap they spew, I'll listen.


Apocalyptic religious faith does better.

Do my eyes deceive me, or does a Global Warming cultist claim that Republicans are the ones who believe in apocalyptic religion?

Ironic.

What's up with all these tornados, then? Tell me the climate's not changing.

Some years there are more tornadoes. Some year there are fewer. Some years there are more hurricanes. Some years there are fewer. Some years it is hotter. Some years it is cooler.

The climate changes. It always has. What scientists are claiming is that it is MAN causing it, and that has not been proven.

Are you sure you want to be involved in this argument, drone? You don't seem well-equipped to discuss the issue.

that the world is not getting warmer and there is not increasingly unusual or bizarre weather, maybe you should put your money where you mouth is and go into the insurance business. You could make a lot of money.

Yeah yeah, "Look over there! Something distracting!" Exactly what I've come to expect from you. Doesn't really address anything I wrote, but why start now?

Let me state my position, Stevie, just so we're clear:

1) The Earth is not warming.
2) The Earth is NOT going through any more unusual or bizarre weather than it has in the past.
2) The climate change cultists have not proven that it is.
3) After proving that it is, the cultists must THEN prove that the cause of this is mankind.

Y'see, in REAL science, it's not up to the "denier" to prove his claims. It's up to the one making the claim. Science, at its core, is skepticism. Thanks to to the corruption and incompetence of the UEA "scientists," most of the datasets supposedly proving global warming are suspect. In any other science (physics, for example), that would be a major scandal, enough to undo the theory. For your side, it merely means you shift your claims and keep plugging along. Your "theory" has thus far failed to prove anything in the real world.

That's not science. That's religion. Global warming/climate change is like witchcraft centuries ago... it can be the cause of ANYTHING.

http://www.numberwatch.co.uk/warmlist.htm

Just like the claims, the terminology shifts smoothly as the theory fails. Global warming becomes climate change. Climate change becomes "climate chaos." And never do you step back and ask "what the hell?" Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia.

Evil, I suppose the whole world of mainstream repectable scientific opinion,(not the crackpot scientists you link to, none of whom are experts in their field) are out of step, or as you say, captivated by "witchcraft", from wikipedia.

Ah, the "consensus" argument. Pretty much all you've got, Steve. Yeah, I knew that was coming.

You fail to mention that many of those scientists who are part of that consensus are ALSO not experts in the field. Few of those in your "consensus" have actually done independent research on the subject. Fewer still are climate scientists.

You also conveniently neglect to mention that there are numerous scientists who ARE experts in the field who claim that global warming is wrong. Five minutes of research on Google could provide you with names, quotes, and arguments, but that is inconvenient... heretical. Can't have anyone questioning your faith, can you Stevie?

As I've pointed out, much of the "proof" which this supposed "consensus" is taken from come from the University of East Anglia (as many as 4 out of 5 of the major datasets). They faked research, and hid the results of other research when it did not show warming. Most global warming research is based on computer models, suspect data, and not hard and cold scientific research.

No scientific body of national or international standing has maintained a dissenting opinion; the last was the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, which in 2007 updated its 1999 statement rejecting the likelihood of human influence on recent climate with its current non-committal position."

Steve, I don't care about your consensus argument. It's the last resort of someone who has failed to prove his point. I care about the following:

1) Is the Earth warming?
2) If so, how much?
3) What will the result be?
4) Is mankind causing it?
5) How can it be stopped if mankind is causing it?

Can you answer EVEN ONE of those questions? Please be specific. I want numbers, not the "4 out of 5 dentists agree" bullshit that you cultists present instead of a real argument.

"If it can't be expressed in figures, it is not science; it is opinion. It has long been known that one horse can run faster than another — but which one? Differences are crucial." -Robert Heinlein

Steve, one of the signs of religious faith is an inability to change an opinion when evidence contradicts it. As I keep pointing out 9and you keep ignoring), the language of you climate cultists constantly shifts... when your arguments are proven wrong you change the claims, but you never question the foundational argument.

You are arguing from faith, not reason.
