It's not hard to see that this election will be run by an American theme. Just see the Conservatives attack ads. OK, I can't change that so let's go with it. Obama ran his campaign on HOPE. We can too. Here it is: Harper Outta Power Expeditiously. Let's look at Harper, the lying, hypocritical sack of bat guano. Remember, attacks are OK. Hey, he started this.

His main theme is:


According to Stephen Harper, this election is about choices. We can elect a stable, majority Conservative government or a coalition of Liberals, socialists, separatists...


www2.macleans.ca...

What he want you to have hopefully forgotten is:


Turns out Stephen Harper also dilly-dallied with separatist coalitions in the not-so-distant past; and there is proof, not in the form of a forgotten blue dress but in the form of a letter signed by Harper and Gilles Duceppe and sent to then-governor general Adrienne Clarkson.


His explanation of this?


Back in 2004, when he led the Tories in opposition to then-prime minister Paul Martin’s Liberal minority, Harper signed a joint letter with Layton and Duceppe, asking the governor general to consider “options” if Martin sought an election. Layton and Duceppe say what they had in mind was Harper heading a government, with their backing. Without having to win an election. Exactly what he accused Ignatieff of plotting now.

Harper said he intended nothing of the sort. And for two days, he wouldn’t clarify just what “options” he’d wanted the GG to consider. Then, on the campaign’s third morning, he offered an explanation. “I would have told the governor general, ‘We in fact are not trying to bring the government down. All Mr. Martin has to do is sit down and talk to us and I’m sure we will find a resolution.’ ” In other words, he hoped the GG would urge Martin to play nice. Is that in the vice-regal job description? Not according to University of New Brunswick parliamentary expert Don Desserud. Ned Franks, Queen’s University’s resident sage on Parliament, called the Prime Minister’s explanation “utter nonsense.”

Someone called BS on you Stevie.

Now how about that little thing about his government being in "contempt of Parliament"? What do you have to say to the people about your abuse of the parliamentary procedure Stevie?

Sorry, can't find this story online at this time. I have a hard copy at work though and will produce the text and links tomorrow but it still comes from Maclean's. When asked about the contempt charge he starts to answer and then says, "This election is about the economy." Basically dodging the question.

So my fellow Canadians. See this man as he is and deliver on May 2nd on the HOPE train.

You tell me. I don't understand what you mean by posting that attack ad. Sorry, just not seeing the correlation.

Seriously, if I had the time I could scour your posts and find a small talking point to discredit what you are saying. THAT is what these ads add up to. Don't fall for them man. Use your brain.

Yeah, I agree, but are the alternatives any better?
Granted Ignatieff seems like a bright guy, but he needs to put a filter between his head and mouth, he's blurted out some of the dumbest things...
Don't even get me started on Layton... I wish there was a "none of the above" option... I think I'm going to vote Green Party LOL

Iggy is an academician not a politician. That's why he steps in # so often. He's got a month to learn. Hell I'd run but my past is too checkered.

Truth is that so far the PC campaign has been mostly mud-slinging about Iggy's dumb quotes. So I give credit to the Liberals and NDP for actually campaigning on their platform instead of bitching about Harper and his helter-skelter shady facade
edit on 5-4-2011 by Konstantinos because: DIE TYPOS, DEI!!!!

On that attack ad thing... isn't it disgusting that it actually works with Canadians? I swear they are putting some sort of anti-depressant in Tim Horton coffee the past few years.

Double double with a Paxil and a dozen assorted Timbits, please.

Found Harper's cop out:


Afterwards, a reporter asked how he would deal with the fact his party was found in contempt of Parliament the week before. “The only democratic outrage is…” he began to say, before pausing: “Well, the economy is what this election is really about.”

Side note. Canadians really should read Macleans. I've been a subscriber for years. Best news coverage out there.

Conservative leader Stephen Harper and Shawn Macdonald who owns a plumbing business share a moment as Harper unveils his 'Here for Canada" Conservative policy platform

www.thestar.com...


Just when you think that Harper might be walking the Canadian way, he pulls out the 'Joe the Plumber' card.

Is it Groundhog Day redux?
