Kiss of Electoral Death: Gore applauds Romney on climate

Mitt Romney will have a tough time shaking off the stink of Al Gore’s endorsement.

About Romney’s recent avowal of climate alarmism, Gore wrote on his blog today:

Good for Mitt Romney — though we’ve long passed the point where weak lip-service is enough on the Climate Crisis
June 15, 2011 : 12:49 PM

While other Republicans are running from the truth, he is sticking to his guns in the face of the anti-science wing of the Republican Party:

“It seemed like a straightforward question on a second-tier issue: Would Mitt Romney disavow the science behind global warming?”
“The putative Republican presidential front-runner, eager to prove his conservative bona fides, could easily have said what he knew many in his party’s base wanted to hear.”
“Instead, the former Massachusetts governor stuck to the position he has held for many years — that he believes the world is getting warmer and that humans are contributing to it.”

Maybe Romney can star (with Nancy Pelosi) in Gore’s next TV ad.

  1. Romney is an MBA type who goes with the received view of the world. he does not possess the intellect or character to look objectively at the world. He only speaks of principle when he is giving his farewell speach.

    His record as governor is proof that he goes with the wind. Him and Scoot Brown should run as democrats.

  2. I notice his site says: “Please join the conversation” . . . . but there is no place to post a comment or reaction . . . .

  3. If the Stupid Party nominates this RINO, we can kiss it ALL goodbye, folks.
    Like Rush said the other day….. “bye, bye nomination.”…. Pray that there are enough lucid people left to not let this happen to us AGAIN.
    Keep up the good fight, Steve………

  4. Septic tank pumping is an honorable profession.

    I think what you meant to say was: “I’d rather clean septic tanks with a straw than have Gore endorse me.” 🙂

  5. One does wish that were important enough to sway the electorate. I am afraid that however fond, it is only a wish. He’s going to equivocate into someithing that will allow the “experts” to keep digging in. The timing with the solar downsizing will ensure that the equivocating begins sooner and is done more effectively.

    To put a finer point on it, the guy is a shape-shifting gas bag of a big-government administrator.
