Damning Herman Cain with faint praise ...


Basically, I think Mitt Romney is every bit a manufactured image as Barack Obama – the progressive’s dream candidate who is himself a progressive RINO (Republican In Name Only).

Let us, for a moment, concentrate on one issue of great importance to me: global warming. The progressive wet dream which subverts science in order to convince the public that it is prudent to install a permanent political class in America and provide them with unfettered access to the taxpayer’s money and control over individual citizens. In short, the Marxist dream of an “enlightened ruling class” controlling an unexceptional populace using scientific means. Central planning writ so large as to look like totalitarianism.

Mitt Romney’s position on global warming …

As reported in the Boston Globe …

“Romney reaffirms stance that global warming is real.” (June 4, 2011)

“In the first town hall of his freshly announced presidential campaign, Mitt Romney yesterday reaffirmed his view that global warming is occurring and that humans are contributing to it, a position that has been rejected in recent years by many Republicans as the issue has taken on a greater partisan tinge.”

“I don’t speak for the scientific community, of course,’’ Romney said. “But I believe the world’s getting warmer. I can’t prove that, but I believe based on what I read that the world is getting warmer. And number two, I believe that humans contribute to that … so I think it’s important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may well be significant contributors to the climate change and the global warming that you’re seeing.’’ <Source>

But as we can all plainly see, Romney has a terrible history of saying or doing anything that will allow him to gain or maintain power. A flip-flopper of the first order.

As reported in Politico Pro …

“Mitt Romney tweaks climate stance.” (August 24, 2011)

“Hours after being called ‘mushy on environmental issues’ by a Republican senator, Mitt Romney has tweaked his position on global warming.”

“Asked Wednesday at a Lebanon, N.H., town hall meeting whether he believed in global warming and if humans contribute to rising temperatures, Romney said he doesn't know.”

“’"Do I think the world's getting hotter? Yeah, I don't know that but I think that it is,’ Romney said, as reported by Reuters. ‘I don't know if it's mostly caused by humans.’" <Source>

But even worse than his position on global warming was his scientific advisor for global warming issues …

For what I can tell, Mitt Romney has a clear association with the Marxist devil himself, John Holdren.

“[Obama’s] Science Czar John Holdren, a participant in ClimateGate who has advocated de-developing America and putting sterilants in the public water supply.”

“Holdren has also spoken in favor of forced abortions, confiscation of babies, targeted as well as mass involuntary sterilization, bureaucratic regulation of family size, and global authoritarian government. If there is a line between ultra-left ideologue and evil maniac, Holdren clearly crosses it.” <Source>

And it might be a long-term relationship?


“New clean air rules balance environmental and economic goals”

“Governor Mitt Romney today announced that Massachusetts will take another major step in meeting its commitment to protecting air quality when strict state limitations on carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from power plants take effect on January 1, 2006.”

“’Massachusetts continues to be committed to improving air quality for all our citizens. These carbon emission limits will provide real and immediate progress in the battle to improve our environment,’ Romney said. ‘They help us accomplish our environmental goals while protecting jobs and the economy.’”

Massachusetts is the first and only state to set CO2 emissions limits on power plants. The limits, which target the six largest and oldest power plants in the state, are the toughest in the nation and are designed to lower emissions of nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide and mercury from power plant smokestacks.”

“The combination of these market-based mechanisms with stringent CO2 caps will lead to cost-effective environmental gains.”

“In the development of greenhouse gas policy, Romney Administration officials have elicited input from environmental and economic policy experts. These include John Holden, professor of environmental policy at Harvard University and chair of the National Commission on Energy Policy and Billy Pizer, an economist at Resources for the Future, an environmental policy think-tank based in Washington D.C.” <Source>

John Holdren is currently in the news …

“Obama Science Czar Led UN Effort to Hide Proceedings, Subvert FOIA, Records Indicate”

“Washington, D.C., October 17, 2011 - The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request today with the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), run by controversial White House Science Adviser (and former Mitt Romney climate adviser) John Holdren. The FOIA request seeks records involving an apparently co-ordinated effort between OSTP and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to subvert and circumvent U.S. law.

“Specifically, CEI's FOIA request seeks details of the Obama Administration's involvement in a UN IPCC plan to hide official online correspondence in non-governmental accounts. The express purpose of creating a non-government web-site "cloud" communications system was to avoid national transparency laws, such as the U. S. FOIA. However, with OSTP having taken over the lead U.S. role in the IPCC in 2009, this also implicates the Presidential Records Act of 1978 (PRA).”

“The new IPCC system sought to shield U. S. government employees working on the Fifth Assessment Report from FOIA requests by hiding their correspondence, even though they are being tasked and paid by the federal government to work on the report. The scandal-plagued IPCC is funded with millions of U.S. taxpayer dollars. CEI demonstrates in its FOIA request that the IPCC's motivation to avoid future FOIA requests was past embarrassment over releases of earlier communications between IPCC officials and participating bureaucrats, appointees and scientists working on the assessment reports.” <Source>

From what I can tell, Holdren is a committed Marxist ideologue willing to subvert science and country to pursue his chosen twisted philosophy.

Bottom line …

There was RomneyCare in liberal Massachusetts which President Obama credits as being the model for ObamaCare. A legislative initiative which is based on Marxist-like Central Planning and can implement rules and regulations which could easily cost you your life. No matter what you may think of Sarah Palin, she had the issue pegged correctly: Death Panels overseen by government bureaucrats, responsible to no one except their political appointers.

Then there was global warming and the demonization of carbon dioxide –- with regulations over our energy creation, distribution and usages. All based on the science as promoted by a committed Marxist ideologue, John Holdren.

Now being a member of the James Bond method of threat assessment, I am saying:

Once is happenstance;

Twice is coincidence;

Three times it is enemy action!

Not being able to rely on Mitt Romney, whose words and deeds are subject to change at the drop of a poll, I believe that we cannot take a chance that – no matter what Romney’s business background might have been – the man is a Massachusetts' liberal in the mold of fellow Massachusetts’ progressive democrats: Teddy Kennedy, John Kerry and Barney Frank.

His past actions say he is a progressive!

I would rather vote for a Herman Cain, a businessman with a background in statistical analysis, than another “go along to get along liberal politician” who appears to have the same demeanor and empty-suit quality as Barack Obama. A man without core beliefs and who will throw anyone under the bus should it prevent him from assuming the responsibility which rightly falls on his shoulders.

I do not like Mitt Romney based on what I see. And when the liberal mainstream media falls in behind the idea that Romney is the chosen GOP candidate, the hair on the back of my neck stands up and all of my senses cry out: Danger, Danger.

Say what you will, the plastic doll that is Romney is more likely to continue the policies of Carter, Clinton, Bush and Obama than not. He has proven he is susceptible to lobbying and may be likely to sell us down the drain. Especially to keep up his blow-dried appearance.

Romney’s John Holdren Problem

“The GOP front-runner for 2012 sought advice on global warming and carbon emissions from the president’s current science czar — an advocate of de-developing America and population control.”

“Politics is said to make strange bedfellows, but no coupling in our view is more bizarre than when John Holdren, now President Obama’s assistant for science and technology, once advised GOP presidential candidate and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney on environmental policy.”

“Holdren’s bizarre views are best suited for an adviser to someone like, say, Pol Pot.”

“He views humanity as a plague on the planet and the Industrial Revolution as a tragic mistake. The fewer people, he believes, the better, and he’s not shy about the ways he would use to reduce their number.”
