Inhofe: Romney’s Attempt To ‘Play Both Sides’ On Climate ‘Doesn’t Show A Lot Of Strength’

Sen. James M. Inhofe (R-OK) said GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney should stop trying to “play both sides” on global warming. “I think people need to make up their minds,” Inhofe told the Washington Times. “You know, we’ve had a lot of time, 10 years we’ve been thinking about this. We ought to decide where we are and not try to play both sides.” He continued: “I think it’s not a good political move. It doesn’t show a lot of strength when you don’t have a firm opinion on an issue that’s been around for 10 years.” (In fact, global warming pollution was brought to the attention of President Lyndon B. Johnson 46 years ago.)
