  1. Brilliant! The unfortunate thing is, will canadians realize how idiotic these kinds of attacks are? We'll see come election day. Nice job, Stephen.

  2. Seems Prime Minister Harpers opponents love George W. Bush much more than Harper does mentioning his name do often. Too funny. At lead Harper stayed calm, cool and collected amid the hyperbole. Good for him.

  3. Great clip, Stephen!

    Unfortunately, having Mike Harris out of office for years hasn't changed anything.

    I don't expect them to stop with the Bush-bashing either. It's all they've got.

  4. BEAUTIFUL! Best election ad yet for the Conservatives. They sound like a pack of fools all locked up on George Bush who is not involved in Canadian politics now and never was. This is perfect to bring home to Canadians just how OBSESSED the Opposition BOZOS are with George Bush. Sure hope they use it, it really shows hos stupid they are.

  5. The Jihad has really ramped up – the media in Toronto has been running nothing but the stories on the vandalism in downtown directed toward the Liberal$:

    – Front Page of the Toronto Star
    – Lead Story on 680 News
    – The Globe has an article on it that has a big picture of a smiling Harper about half way down.

    Looks like the communications arm of the LIEberal$ is out in full force – could it get any worse?

    Soldiers with Guns – in our streets – in Canada?

  6. ‘LOVE IT!!

    These leaders of the disLoyal Opposition are so transparent. If you can’t think of a verbal knockout punch of your own, borrow from some some other agenda and hope that your listeners are too dumb to clue into what you’re doing.

    PMSH doesn’t need to borrow from George Bush or rely on George Bush or follow George Bush’s example or live in the shadow of George Bush. He’s a first-class leader on his own, pulling on his own strengths and smarts. I’ve been clear about what Stephen Harper is doing in the Canadian context without any need to compare him with George W. Bush.

    I wonder what May’s, Duceppe’s, Layton’s, and Dion’s excuses are?

    Maybe they ran out of ideas…

  7. Stephen … when you put in the words”they are going to miss him” you should then cut to a Sarah Palin clip “I'm just a country girl” or “hockey moms and pit bulls”. so funny

  8. That Mini-Marx is taken seriously by anyone is amazing to me, so amazing that this George Bush stuff probably resonates with the same folks that take the Lunatic Fringe seriously. Kindred spirits and all that.


  9. Beer and Popcorn, is this some kind of set-up in Toronto to make it look like the Conservatives did it, or are the NDP a bigger threat to the Libranos? Can't put anything past Liberals in desperation. Smells fishy, in fact it stinks, There needs to be a police investigation to clear it up for all concerned,

  10. Cant blame them…liberals got alot of mileage from this in past elections…trot out the usual bogeymen…”big Oil, banks,,Bush…etc….
    Just wears thin after a frickin decade of it…..

  11. I don't know.

    The pulling-out-sign thing seems fishy to me. It's never happened before that I know of, and it's not usually a Conservative tactic. I smell a rat.

    The Liberals and their MSM allies and cheerleaders seem utterly desperate at this point–not to win, they can't, but to tar and feather Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the CPC. I can only hope that the dirty tactics backfire. Only time will tell.

  12. It's hilarious.

    I just recently heard an NDP candidate phrase something along the lines of “another eight years of Conservative or Liberal rule” .

    8 years of Conservative rule?

    Someone has been watching too much american news…
    I also wonder how many young people are voting based off what is going on down south of the border rather then here?

    What good is a democracy when no one bothers to even know who they're voting for?

    I've been directing people to CPAC to get an unbiased view of things and to consider basing their votes off of the individual Candidates.


    But really, Stephen Harper and the Conservatives have proven themselves to be the safest choice.

    I'm hoping for the MSM to finally start to catch on this fact before it is too late.


    At least some have already, even the editors of Maclean's have said something similar to this in there latest mag, but with lesser details.

    The dip in the polls may have something to do with the knee jerk reaction to the latest Zeitgeist movie thats been released.

    Which is kind of silly since much of what is said doesn't apply to how things work up here.
    Especially since the Conservatives brought in those measures to keep big money from influencing our democracy.

    Heres the link:


    It goes a bit over the deep end on some things and gives off a cheesy 'new-agey' vibe in its production values but there are some important bits of truth in it.

    I have my criticisms, but not all of what they state is exactly theory either.
    I don't know, I feel too many of the “young in's” up here may take what is said from this video the wrong way and end up voting against the Conservatives blindly without putting things fully in perspective.

    Especially since things up here are so entirely different and that the Conservatives are the ones who have been working in the interest of the people and resisting much of the arm turning the “shadowy corporate/special/vested interests” thats been thrown at them. And are the only ones with the sensible bargaining power to continue to do so by knowing how to make the right compromises.

    Since the parties have proven there unwillingness to work across party lines to accomplish things then people should be changing things up by either voting in new/moderate parties rather then what is currently in opposition.

    The opposition parties don't deserve more power and anyone who has been paying attention or watching CPAC over the years knows that.

    This Zeitgeist thing true or not is not the be all and end all to everything, but nor should it be entirely discounted either.
    I think they may mean well but don't entirely understand the full measure of how things ought to be dealt with.
    But I would think if they had supported Ron Paul as some of my friends from the south have, that they would be on the side of the Conservatives up here as well, especially since our situation is entirely different then theirs.

    I'm glad they're main argument is against the monetary system rather then any one side of the Left or Right political system of bs… and they promote a resource based economy for the USA which probably makes some level of sense given their country's situation. To suggest the same here may be a bit early or extreme inappropriate, but we'll have to wait and see how things play out. I suspect whatever happens, the U.S. will become more-and-more protectionist for a long while… and perhaps thats for the best to some extent.

    Moderates everywhere should remain relaxed however, and continue to constantly take in more information so as not to be forced into doing anything too drastic out of fear.

    That being said, I'm fairly certain they would back most Conservative candidates (if not all) in OUR election if they only knew more about them. While also backing the some of the Libertarian movements/candidates on a case by case basis.

    Majority or Minority, what matters is that the Conservatives are allowed to govern their mandate unhinged by any obstructionistic opposition parties. Especially since the Conservatives still have to deal with the “Liberal” dominated Senate.

    Anyone who cares to see what else I have to say on the matter can read up on what I've been saying prior to viewing this version of the Zeitgeist, over here:


    At this crappy/ugly myspace forum. Where Liberal propagandist are in no short order…

  13. Judging by how successful Dion's and Layton's dishonest and misleading attacks have been, I am not at all sure that Canadians can think – in fact I am pretty sure they are lacking that ability. Aggression is prized above thoughtfulness when what we need for the trying times ahead is thoughtfulness.

    I would love to see a completely revamped LIberal party minus the Chretien crowd, but they are not there yet.

  14. Speaking of George W. Bush:

    Canada is a fundamentally good country, and it would therefore condemn George W. Bush’s hate crimes.

    George W. Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism (indicated in my blog).

    George W. Bush did in fact commit innumerable hate crimes.

    And I do solemnly swear by Almighty God that George W. Bush committed other hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism which I am not at liberty to mention.

    Many people know what Bush did.

    And many people will know what Bush did—even to the end of the world.

    Bush was absolute evil.

    Bush is now like a fugitive from justice.

    Bush is a psychological prisoner.

    Bush has a lot to worry about.

    Bush can technically be prosecuted for hate crimes at any time.

    In any case, Bush will go down in history in infamy.

    (I can type 90 words per minute. In only 7 days, posts basically like this post of mine have come into existence—all over the Internet (hundreds of copies). One can go to Google USA right now, type “George W. Bush committed hate crimes of epic proportions and with the stench of terrorism,” hit “Enter,” and find more than 350 copies indicating the content of this post. All in all, there are probably more than 1,000 copies on the Internet indicating the content of this post—it has practically become headline news. One cannot be too dedicated when it comes to anti-Bush activities. As I looked back at my good computer work, I thought how fun and easy it was to do it.)

    I am not sure where I had read it before, but anyway, it goes kind of like this: “If only it were possible to ban invention that bottled up memories so they never got stale and faded.” Oh wait—off the top of my head—I think it came from my Lower Merion High School yearbook.
