2012 News Wrap-Up Aug 18: Evolution and Terrorists

Jon Huntsman caused some stir today:

To be clear. I believe in evolution and trust scientists on global warming. Call me crazy.

Perhaps in response to this:

Sam, wide-eyed and looking up at the governor, asked Mr. Perry a question. The governor crouched down so he was just inches from Sam’s face, and in a soft, calm voice began to answer.

“How old do I think the earth is?” Mr. Perry said. “You know what? I don’t have any idea. I know it’s pretty old, so it goes back a long, long way. I’m not sure anybody actually knows completely and absolutely how long, how old the earth is.”

[...]

“And here your mom was asking about evolution, and you know, it’s a theory that’s out there and it’s got some gaps in it,” Mr. Perry continued. “In Texas, we teach both creationism and evolution in our public schools.”

He added: “I figure you’re smart enough to figure out which one is right. Thank you.”

 

 Perry vs. Obama:

The truth is Obama believes the same thing. If a reporter were to ask Obama if he believe God created the earth, I am almost positive he would say “Yes.” If they asked if he believed in evolution, he would also say, “Yes.” So, Obama also believes there are “some gaps” in the evolutionary theory (a better question would be, “Pres. Obama, do you believe we evolved from apes? I would love to see him dance around that one), but don’t worry, no reporter ever will ask him.

Funny how Obama is never asked religious questions. No one every asks specifics on his Christian belief. The last few weeks Michele Bachman fielded a host of religious based questions, including Dick Gregory asking ““God has guided your decisions in life. Would God guide your decisions that you would make as president of the United States?” As Obama ever been asked these types of questions? Had Gregory ever asked Obama about praying with pastors about the debt ceiling vote? No. They just want to catch a GOP candidate saying something they can distort as religiously fanatic.

Can Perry bring in the dough?

Does Perry think the Middle Class doesn’t pay enough taxes?

Michele Bachmann says she’ll bring back $2 gas:

“Under President Bachmann you will see gasoline come down below $2 a gallon again,“ Bachmann told a crowd Tuesday in South Carolina. “That will happen.”

Bachmann Super PAC formed:

A trio of well-known conservatives have organized a so-called “super PAC” to aid Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann’s bid for the Republican presidential nomination, according to sources familiar with the move.

Citizens for a Working America, as the group is known, will be chaired by former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell. Ed Brookover, a longtime political consultant and adviser to Bachmann, will be involved as will conservative lawyer and economist Marc Nuttle.

“Michele Bachmann is a principled conservative with the policy prescriptions our country needs to pull out of its economic doldrums,” said Brookover in an email exchange with The Fix. “We look forward to promoting her and her programs to the American public.”

And apparently Bachmann employed a “terrorist.”

Dark side to Bachmann?

Christian dominionism” and Bachmann and Perry.

Obama on Romney:

“You’ve got a governor (Mitt Romney) who’s running for president right now who instituted the exact same thing in Massachusetts. This used to be a Republican idea. It’s like suddenly they got amnesia.” — President Obama at town hall meetings in Minnesota and Iowa referring to a central component of his health care bill — the requirement for nearly everyone to carry health insurance.

Mitt Romney not happy with Obama’s handling of Syria.

Romney got the endorsements of eight Florida legislators.
