To paraphrase a famous remark used against a certain Democrat in the 2004 Presidential campaign, Mitt Romney was for global warming before he was against it. Romney's waffling on climate change is sure to reinforce his already well-earned reputation for flip floppery. UPDATE: New York magazine says the waffle is more subtle:
It's not a total flip-flop, just a slight shift towards a philosophy that distrusts scientific evidence that doesn't conform to the ideology of the Republican base.
UPDATE: Andy Revkin (who generously links to this post), likens Romney to a yoga contortionist.
