Republicans view of @ integral-options

Back in August 2011, presidential candidate Jon Huntsman told ABC News on “This Week”:

“The minute that the Republican Party becomes the anti- party, we have a huge problem.”

Huntsman, we have a problem (and it’s pretty huge). There were many anti- statements made by the GOP this year, but we were able to narrow them into the following countdown of Addicting Info’s Top 2012 Anti- Statements by Republicans:

———————————————————————————————————–

ON ENVIRONMENT…

10. Senate candidate for Indiana, Tea Party-supported Republican , gets the number-10 spot, not for his flub that conception from rape is God’s will, but rather his stance on in statements he made during a May 2012 Americans for Limited Government (ALG) conference call, as reported by The American Spectator:

“We are basing our energy policy on the greatest hoax of all time, which is that mankind is changing the climate.”

So which do you think came first – Mourdock’s disbelief in man-made , or the fossil fuel industry’s financial support of his campaign?

————————————————————————————————————

9. Republican presidential candidate , as reported by CBS News, told an Ohio audience during a February campaign stop:

“When it comes to the management of the Earth, [Democrats] are the anti- ones. We are the ones who stand for , and technology, and using the resources we have to be able to make sure that we have a quality of life in this country and maintain a good and stable environment.”

Ah, I see what Rick did here. It’s the old, ‘I’m rubber, you’re glue” game of taking your own flaw and trying to paint your opponents with it, similar to the ‘Democrats are waging a war on women’ argument. (Rick should know that, according to a Pew Research Center Poll, only 6% of scientists identified themselves as Republicans, while over half identified as Democrat. In other words, scientists are 11 times more likely to identify as Democrat than as Republican.)

8. In March, later went on to say at a Consumer Energy Alliance-sponsored Gulf Coast Energy Summit:

“The [of man-made ] is bogus. … [T]his isn’t climate , this is political . The dangers of carbon dioxide – tell that to a plant how dangerous carbon dioxide is.”

So many jokes, so little time (e.g., Rick should try this discussion with his houseplants in his garage with his car running). Suffice it to say, Santorum’s remarkable ignorance on the subject of the earth’s carbon cycle is fairly frightening, if not outright dangerous. See video of Santorum’s carbon dioxide statement here.
