Ah, that Willard. He's so thoughtful. If he thinks you can help him get what he wants, he'll tell you anything he thinks you want to hear. Today's lie/flip-flop concerns climate change. Here's Willard all the way back in June:"I believe the world is getting warmer, and I believe that humans have contributed to that," he said at a town hall this June. "It's important for us to reduce our emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases that may be significant contributors."
Now here's Willard this past week:
"My view is that we don't know what's causing climate change on this planet," he said at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pa. "And the idea of spending trillions and trillions of dollars to try to reduce CO2 emissions is not the right course for us. My view with regards to energy policy is pretty straightforward: I want us to become energy secure and independent of the oil cartels."
You see, the rabid right-wingers think all this talk of humans contributing to climate change is all a bunch of hippie, tree-hugger nonsense. And since they control the nominating process in the Republican Party, Willard is more than happy to say whatever they want to hear.
Now my question is this:
1. Was he lying in June?
2. Or is he lying now?
