What Happened To The Republican Consensus On Climate Change?

In May right-wing activist Marc Morano said Republican candidates "can believe in the science of global warming ... if you keep your mouth shut about it and you advocate no quote-unquote solution to the problem."

While the political discourse has since regressed, the scientific consensus has not.

Schlafly Perpetuates Republican Car Dealership Closing Myth

In a June 2, 2009 Townhall blogpost, Phyllis Schlafly perpetuated a myth that is gaining traction in the conservative noise machine: that the Obama administration took a direct hand in GM and Chrysler car dealership closings and deliberately targeted dealerships that contributed to Republican candidates. This accusation is baseless. The Obama administration had no hand in deciding what dealerships would close, as GM and Chrysler CEOs have made clear. In addition, statistical analysis shows that car dealerships are overwhelmingly owned by Republicans, and more car dealerships that remained open are owned by Republicans than Democrats.

The Senate Republicans: 100 Days Of Political Grandstanding

On April 29, 2009, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell issued a press release aimed at rewriting the record of Senate Republicans during President Obama's first 100 days in office. However, McConnell's claim that Republicans are a party of "principled support, principled opposition, and pragmatic, creative solutions" is far from true. In reality, Republicans have offered nothing more than 100 days of political grandstanding.
