There are countless reasons to vote for Barack Obama rather than Mitt Romney this November. Here's one of the great reasons:
Romney wants our planet to get sicker and for the world's oceans to rise -- inundating highly populated areas, including Florida.
That's insane, but it's what he said when he mocked President Obama:
President Obama promised to slow the rise of the oceans and to heal the planet. My promise is to help you and your family.
How anybody could be for a diseased planet and coastal flooding is beyond me. Also, beyond Stephen Colbert, who had a great rejoinder on a recent show (at about the two minute mark of the video).
Yeah, f__k the planet! Quick show of hands: how many of your families live on the planet?
Republicans have a crazy belief that the well-being of humans somehow isn't intimately connected with the well-being of the earth's environment, which obviously makes it possible for people to survive and prosper.
Until recently Romney used to accept the reality of global warming. Now he's drunk the right-wing crazy juice and is in favor of a sick planet.
That's sick! Vote for Obama if you want to heal the planet AND help families.
