Pataki: CNBC Never Asked me To Discuss My Support for Global Warming Theory

‘I’d love to debate the rest of the candidates on something like global warming or science or evolution or vaccines’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

COSTELLO: "You said can you imagine a debate moderated by Hannity, Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin, would that be okay with you?"

PATAKI: “I actually went back and red some of the Lincoln/Douglas debates and they were intelligent where you would have people rebutting and refuting each other and directly commenting. Yesterday, Fareed, one of your great analysts was on TV and he was saying none of the Republicans believe in evolution or science. During the debate I was talking about how Republicans have to embrace science and embrace the technology that will allow us to deal with issues like global warming, but nobody heard it. I do think we need a different system."

COSTELLO: "It seems like some of the candidates want to control what questions are asked. That's not a good thing."

PATAKI: "That's not a good thing up. Don't to want control the questions, but on the other hand you want them to know that the questions are going to be about the issues that affect the American people. You know, I'd love to debate the rest of the candidates on something like global warming or science or evolution or vaccines. I would love to debate them on so many of these issues, but instead it seems like, did you kick your do last week, or something like that."
