18. The good news is he just energized a ton of environmental interests against him
I don't think he thought this through. While environmental organizations won't support Republicans I GUARANTEE you that they will be very weary and careful from here on with their support of Obama and they will organize together to support competitors within the party.

This is HUGE and a lot of people are going to see it that way.
