Last night, at a fundraiser event in New York, President Obama compared the extremism of the Republican presidential field to Sen. John McCain in 2008. Obama said that unlike today’s GOP candidates, McCain was not “a climate change denier,” while also mentioning McCain’s positions against torture and in favor of immigration reform. Now down to four candidates, the GOP is bound to select a climate denier as its nominee. Each of the candidates has openly doubted climate change, and both Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have denied accepting global warming just years ago.
