Of course nature has always gone through cycles. No one denies it.
The truth is most climatologists agree that man has changed the atmosphere through greenhouse gas emissions & this will change our climate. It is making the Earth warmer & this will bring climate change.
Now you right whiners can run & hide from this all you want. You can continue to make this a political issue instead of a science issue.
Republicans believed in global warming until the Republican Party decided that it would hurt their major donors so they convinced dumbasses like you that global warming doesn't exist.
Mitt Romney will roll back emissions regulations, burn more coal, & allow global warming to continue to increase.
Expect more mega storms & expect the government to spend tens of billions more a year in weather related disaster relief.
When did Republicans get stupid?
Mayor Bloomberg agrees &told Mitt to take his dog & pony show elsewhere.
Oh quit with the bullshit. If man was screwing up the climate don't you think it would have been much worse back in 20's, 30's, and 40'. I mean after all there were no emission controls on anything. most houses burnt wood or coal not only to heat the house but cook and warm water. It is a proven fact that co2 in the atmosphere is going down. It is also a proven fact that the temperature rise is not happening. There is no man made climate change.

I never realized how ignorant Ospammer really is, To see him try and speak in public without a teleprompter is so sad. I am embarrassed for him. 57 States?

Cant blame him for hiding his college records along with everything else he hides from the fools that elected him.

I guess the united negro college fund isn’t working either.

Copy and paste on google.
What in particular are you looking for in his college records?

DES MOINES (The Borowitz Report)—A new Mitt Romney is emerging in the closing days of the campaign, aides say: a man who is increasingly “being eaten alive with jealousy” by President Obama’s budding relationship with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

While Mr. Romney has told reporters that he is “totally fine” with Gov. Christie flying around in a helicopter with President Obama, privately he has told aides,“Seeing him with Chris Christie is tearing me apart.”

The trouble began earlier this week, a Romney aide said, when Mr. Romney saw Mr. Christie on CNN mention that President Obama “had given him his number at the White House.”

“Mitt was like,‘Fine, whatever, do we have to watch this?’ and then basically ran out of the room,” the aide said.“It was completely awkward.”

Making matters worse, the aide said,“Chris Christie isn’t returning his calls.”

“Mitt was trying to explain his position on FEMA to reporters yesterday and he got all excited because his phone started vibrating,” the aide said.“It turned out it was just Ann.”

Mr. Romney, who has been seen doodling Chris Christie’s name in the margins of his briefing books in recent days, has apparently decided on a new course of action: to make the New Jersey governor jealous.

“He’s been calling [New York Governor Andrew] Cuomo,” the aide said.“But Cuomo won’t call him back either. It’s all so sad.”

An environmentalist briefly interrupted Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during a campaign rally Thursday in Virginia.
The protester shouted “what about climate change, that’s what caused this monster storm” before being drown out by boos from Romney supporters. The unidentified heckler held up a banner that read “End Climate Silence.” He was quickly escorted out of the audience.
As governor of Massachusetts, Romney had worked to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which scientists have pinpointed as a major cause of climate change.

Bloomberg News: Romney ‘rented’ Mormon church’s exemption to defer taxes for 15 years

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney used a loophole to “rent” the Mormon church’s tax exemption status and defer paying taxes for 15 years, according to a new report.

Tax returns obtained by Bloomberg News through a Freedom of Information Act request indicated that Romney set up a charitable remainder unitrust (CRUT) in June 1996 just before Congress cracked down on the loophole in 1997.

“In this instance, Romney used the tax-exempt status of a charity — the Mormon Church, according to a 2007 filing — to defer taxes for more than 15 years,” Bloomberg’s Jesse Drucker explained.“At the same time he is benefitting, the trust will probably leave the church with less than what current law requires.”

The Bush recession sent thee unemployment rate to 10.2%.
The Bush recession was costing 750,000 jobs a month in Jan of 2009. Now we have job gains.
The Bush recession had our economy shrinking by over 6%, now it is growing
The Bush recession had the stock market heading to 6,000, now its more than double that.
That changed you f*cking idiot.
Those that helped cause that Bush recession- are still in Congress, Boehner, Canter, McConnell, DeMint,
The only leader that would not be is Paul Ryan who you idiots want to promote to VP.
Just how GD stupid are you people.
Unemployment even after the September 11 attacks was down to 4% with Bush. It wasn't until I was in charge of Congress that things got really bad! You're welcome and a curtsey, Nancy
