"The world is getting warmer": Romney 6/3/2011 | Reuters Townhall.com But he's rather coy about it. At least Gingrich knows the score. . . . Excerpt: "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." . . . At an event in Manchester last week, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, also running for president, said that climate change is "the newest excuse to take control of lives" by "left-wing intellectuals." LINK For many in the Tea Party RomneyCare's a big problem, but at least Romney eschews the idea of a universal mandate, rightly understanding such a thing to be a dangerous and unprecedented violation of constitutional federalism. He also promises to fight for the repeal of ObamaCare and suspend the enforcement of penalties in the meantime if elected. Fine. If that's the case, I won't hold his state program against him. But I cannot abide even his hint of allowing for the idiocy of lefty's global-warming nonsense.
