Guess Imhofe is trying to force Romney to stop the mixed messages (and false ones) and declare himself an ignorant idiot with faith in Jesus above all else.

To be a REAL republican, stuck in the 'dark ages' despite modern lighting (provided by science) and modern communications (provided by science), who thinks it is all someone ELSES reponsibility. Caps are to denote WHO..

By the way, since Republicans apparently have a direct line to GOD, can you ask HIM why he planted all those fossils to fool us? Was it a big JOKE?

I for one don't believe that all hard core "true" republicans are such huge idiots that most of them truly believe the global warming is a hoax. Most people who are that stupid and ignorant don't become successful and make it to high offices. However, many of those who make it do benefit from lying and deception. If your base is nuts u better act nut to get their vote. It's so sad that being against science and jeopardizing the future of our children and treathening their very existence is the requirement of being a good republican nomeni for presidential position of the number one country in the world. I'm truly worried for the future of our children.

I believe the Democratic Party is using demagoguery to create a climate of fear. Romney was a climate mitigator, the Republican party has a right to hold its candidates to conservative principles. If Romney's arguments aren't satisfactory, he won't get the nomination.

Governor Rick Perry knows climate change mitigation is a hoax. I'd like a candidate who's been on the right side of the issue all along and we've got plenty.

Though Perry supported Al Gore back when he was a Democrat, but not since. Representative Barbara Bachmann has always been right on climate change mitigation.

It isn't about the average Republican but the 'platform' needed to attract the Republican base. The moderate Republicans are not required to be anywhere near as ignorant as those they select as 'leaders'.

It is because the leader needs the 'party base' as well as the intellectuals. And the party base tends to be made up of folks that put religion, social status (based on the current fossil economy) and 'following' above logic, reason and progressive planning.

They can't even keep the story straight; climate change mitigation is a hoax, it's never been tested or even tried.

We don't want our government to mitigate climate change, we want them to cut spending and balance their budget.
