with a little help from his friends.
Thanks, Stephen. Entiendo.
The tv networks are always looking for new ideas for programs. Perhaps they could copy that american one, funniest home videos, and run all the tape that is on the cutting room floor of the networks, or all the pages of notes from reporters that they refused to use. Then there is/was a show that showed all the outtakes of various movies or series. I will never trust another interview with Dion.
The MSM sure got in on the issue of Harper's weight way back when he had a can of root beer in his hand. I remember the Libs opining that Harper set a bad example for today's obese youth. That had to be the lowest and stupidest thing I had ever heard from the Libs. And, yes, the Libs and the MSM have made some disparaging personal remarks against Harper, not the least of which was criticizing him for shaking Ben's hand on his first day of school. For one thing, the MSM should not have been there – it involved Harper's kids. For another, the kid was 12 – if his dad had kissed him in public, Ben would never have spoken to him again – ever. The Libs are the masters of the low art of personal slagging.
“We miss you Stephen, oh yes we dooooo we miss you Stephen and we'll be truuuwhoowwe.. When your not near us …we're blue..OHHH Stephen we miss you!”
I remember back a few years when I got a call from the Harper camp asking me to assist with his leadership race in Calgary. I accepted the invitation and went in as a scrutineer. Mr. Harper of course won as the leader of the party. Some time passed and I was asked again to volunteer on the Conservative campaign. I met Stephen’s brother and wife and I remember distinctly saying to Stephen’s brother that his whole life was about to change. While his wife was not exactly the life of the party I got a deep sense of sincerity from both her and Stephen’s brother. Stephen Harper’s ONLY “downfall” (as the media and Liberals like to twist it) is his inability to communicate in an emotional manner, while I do not see this as a downfall but rather control of one’s emotions. This is EXACTLY the type of person we need to run Canada!
I have some political experience and I stay on top of what is going on provincially, nationally and internationally. I can not express enough how frustrating it is trying to point out issues to die hard Liberals. They are truly an inflexible group. Stephan Dion could have been a hardened criminal and still they would follow him because he is a Liberal. I moved to Alberta from Montreal about 20 years ago, when I was close to 30 and through my experience there I will probably never again vote for a Quebec politician to run Canada. In my opinion they can be VERY shifty. Jack Layton is a lawyer from Hudson, Quebec if I am not mistaken and he appears to be the shiftiest of them all, it’s all about power to him. Dion is simply inept. He would be a puppet of a leader.
Just a point of fact, Dan: I believe that Jack Layton has a PhD in political Science (York U), but is not a lawyer.
Whatever his academic qualifications, his plans for this country are definitely not smart.
If, as Dion and Layton did, continually say that the Prime Minister knew there was a problem with our economy and did nothing to fix it then you had better be prepared to say what you would have done. Dion simply did not have an answer ready and played for time.What is really scary with Dion is that as a Prime Minister making decisions that effect the lives of our brave men and women in Afghanistan he would not get three chances to get it right.
