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