Romney’s Eco-Radical Donors

Every once and awhile we come across a story about the Republican presidential candidates that should spook every conservative.  Well, here is one from Politico:

Will Mitt Romney flip-flop on climate change if he’s elected president?

Some big donors are betting on it.

Romney and his super PAC have taken millions from funders with strong green streaks — despite the fact that the former Massachusetts governor has run to the right in the primary, proclaiming doubts about global-warming science and trashing President Barack Obama’s greenhouse gas emissions policies.

Julian Robertson, founder of the Tiger Management hedge fund, helped put cap-and-trade legislation on the map with $60 million in contributions over the past decade to the Environmental Defense Fund.

Now, Robertson has given $1.25 million to Romney’s Restore our Future super PAC, plus the maximum $2,500 to the Romney campaign.

Remember that people don’t place such large investments without substantial knowledge and confidence in their choice.  In this case, the environmentalists are looking carefully at Romney’s domestic policy team and rightly concluding that they would be friendly to climate-fascism.

We’ll be watching the results carefully tonight, but it is becoming quite evident that there is very little to look forward to in a Romney presidency.  If eco-radicals are willing to dump $1 million into Romney’s campaign, we need a brokered convention.
