    Put the republicans in a possition to have to agree or deny it.

    Romney - his fingernails have never been anything but manicured.

      but I'm not entirely sure.  For example, Romney can simply deny AGW and by doing so he rallies his base and business groups.  He can then put Obama on the defensive by saying "Despite all the evidence that global warming is a hoax, Obama says that it is a major problem.  And yet he won't tell us exactly what he would want to do to counteract this major problem.  He's wrong in his diagnosis and he won't even tell us what his prescription is.  In short, he's no type of leader."

      Of course, they would put it much better than I did but the point remains the same.  By attempting to put Romney on the defensive, he might find himself on the defensive.

      With that said, I too am sick of timid leadership on this issue.  Either we attempt to understand and digest what the scientific community is saying to us or we make a conscience decision to screw over our progeny.  The choice is ours but let's make the choice one way or the other.
