Chris Christie says global warming is real. It’s just the very man-made government programs to correct its effects that are bloated and flawed.

The Republican New Jersey governor launched into an explanation Thursday for why he’s bowing out of a landmark regional cap-and-trade program for power plants, according to Politico, but he first strapped on his layman scientist’s cap to give a brief overview of what’s widely considered accepted climate science.

His decision to leave the program, known as the RGGI, drew quick praise from conservative groups, including the Koch brothers’ Americans for Prosperity, that have long lobbied him to abandon the RGGI ship.

I agree. The vanity of some humans to think they can control nature is beyond belief. How long until we need to start changing our lifestyle to “save the galaxy”?

Rush plays a great speech by Charlton Heston, that puts man in the tiny place he belongs in God’s world.

***So he’s a loser on illegal immigration and global warming. The list keeps growing.***

Yep, just like Juan McCain and Lindsey Graham.

Unlike those two, however, he occasionally is fun to watch when he makes the Dems’ heads explode.

Thanks! Can safely consign him to the holding cells, along with Mitt, Mitch, Rude-E, Eye of Newt, Ronald McTrump, Timmy’s Gone To The Well Pawlenty-a-times, I Don’t Want My Bloomiesburger, Harrold Stassen, and a few others.

Hmmm....Who does that leave? Palin-Bachman? Or Bachman-Palin?

Christie didn’t get the word; it’s called climate change. Of course the climate is changing; it’s always changing.

Chris Christie is a strange bird. He's almost like a reverse RINO on many issues. That is, he says the liberal thing, but does the Conservative thing.

On the whole, I'm really impressed with him so far.

I’m cheering him on with what he’s doing in Jersey, but I don’t want him any higer than a cabinet secretary in an unrelated field with those kind of views on immigration and climate change- maybe treasury or attorney general?
