Sean Hannity interviewed Newt Gingrich on his radio show yesterday. Hannity gently inquired about Newt's stand on man-made global warming (AGW) and how that turns off a lot of conservatives. Gingrich replied that he does not study what conservative positions to take or to espouse when he debates or when he is interviewed, then indicated that he still believes in man-made global warming. He said he acknowledges that "a minority of scientists" are skeptics about AGW.
Horse manure, the majority of climate scientists do not believe in man-made global warming, according to what I have read. Gingrich's stand on AGW means that I can not support him and I will not vote for him in the primaries. Would he be a better president than Obama? Who wouldn't?
Rick Perry blew it (again) in the debates this week, getting brain-lock in response to a simple question, i.e. "What federal agency would you get rid of?" He could have answered "the Department of Energy, the Department of Education, etc" but he didn't respond at all. He froze. Imagine Perry in a debate with Obama...no, I don't think so. Rick Perry is all done and should go home.
So it looks like we will be stuck with slick Mitt, unless Cain can find an effective way to defeat the Democrat Smear Machine, or if Michele Bachmann can find a way to rise in the polls. Otherwise, "It's RINO time!"
