I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that. …It’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors.
I don’t know how much our contribution is to that, because I know that there have been periods of greater heat and warmth in the past but I believe we contribute to that. And so I think it’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may well be significant contributors to the climate change and the global warming that you’re seeing.
Although those words sound like they could have come straight from Obama’s mouth teleprompter, they didn’t. Rather, they were spoken by Mitt Romney on the campaign trail over the last few days and months.
I know he’s trying to pawn himself off as a conservative right now – because he wants to be president – but he’s not conservative, and since the Republican field appears afraid to point that out, I’m doing it for them.
While you’ve got to credit Romney for acting like a conservative during debates, if you really look at him, it’s easy to see he’s a big government moderate who’s susceptible to fallacious arguments any honest observer can see through.

The voters in Michigan must impeach their governor. He represents a danger to his state, lacks and understanding of Sharia and clearly doesn’t know what he is doing.
Governor Rick Snyder of MI tells us below that he is too focused on governing his state to become involved with national issues. With that attitude, it seems he may be limiting his political ambitions in the future.
To add to his cluelessness he hosted a CAIR event on Michigan Muslim Day
Muslim Day? Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, what about a Christian Day? Are you beginning to see on groups like CAIR are metastasizing through out America?
One of the ways that ObamaCare hides its true cost is that it offloads a lot of it onto the states via Medicaid mandates. Michigan stands to lose $billions on the expansion of that program. You figure it’s a no-brainer then for Snyder to sign a letter that is signed by every other state Governor as they all see the coming train wreck for their states. But you’d be wrong. From The Detroit News: Snyder declines to sign GOP governors’ letter on Medicaid plan
Gov. Rick Snyder said Wednesday he is too focused on Michigan issues to join the nation’s other Republican governors in endorsing a seven-point plan to improve Medicaid.
Um – Medicaid IS a Michigan issue is it not???
, CNN contributor and editor-in-chief of Big Journalism
, has been sharpening her Tea Party cred against a Mitt Romney
grindstone, bashing the candidate as
an “unrepentant RINO (Republican In Name Only)” whom she “was against” in the last election, and this election. So great is her animus for Romney that she gets entire “mailbags of hate” from his supporters. The only problem is, Loesch voted for Romney in 2008
, and the internet has the proof
. This is the Tea Party equivalent of being in a mosh pit, and having a Justin Bieber
CD fall out of your pocket.
Dana Loesch: “The man is a sham”
To understand just how much Loesch trades on her Mitt-bashing, check out this clip of her “Mailbag of Hate: Mitt Romney Edition.” Listen to the end, though, because whatever you think of Dana Loesch, she does an Elmo impersonation that would fool Big Bird (which also happens to be the name of a defunct Breitbart site that pushed back against scientific consensus among ornithologists):

He may have been the first major victory of the Tea Party on a national level, but Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown may wind up looking a bit lonely in that regard has he prepares to run for his first full term in the upper chamber. The Daily Caller is reporting that Tea Party activists are feeling rather lukewarm toward Brown at best.
…Scott Brown was the tea party movement’s first electoral victory. But now that he’s up for re-election for a full six-year term in 2012, tea party activists tell The Daily Caller they’re not going to bother putting together the same operation that swept him into office the first time.
That’s not to say tea partiers will not vote for Brown, or even put up much of an effort to oppose him since a serious primary challenger has yet to be found.

A clearly clueless Lisa Murkowski, a pro abortion Republican is very lucky she won her hotly contested for Senator against Joe Miller. Had she been running for a member of the house she would be gone in 2012. She is clearly a RINO. Her campaign was marred by Ballot Stuffing, Native Voter Fraud in the Alaskan Senate Race against Joe Miller.
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.
July 28 (Bloomberg) — The debt-ceiling proposals put forth by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada and House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio would each cut about $750 billion over the next 10 years, according to Bloomberg Government analyst Scott Anchin. To get to a ratio of 60 percent debt to GDP, $4.9 trillion in deficit reduction measures would be needed in the next 10 years, says Bloomberg Government analyst Christopher Payne. (Source: Bloomberg)
The Joe Miller for Senate campaign has released new affidavits swearing that Lisa Murkowski’s write-in campaign is benefiting from voter fraud. A notarized affidavit sworn on November 1 by a voter at Sand Lake Elementary School states when voting began, “there was already a stack of ballots in the box which in my opinion numbered in the hundreds.” The voter adds the ballots “were very neatly stacked and approximately 4 to 5 inches thick.” The affidavit adds this occurred at 7:00 a.m., and the voter was the tenth voter at that location.
