Stephen Harper and the Attack Ads
It was almost more than I could bear. There was Stephen Harper in beautiful British Columbia. Standing in front of a Porky Action Plan backdrop, with a touch of pink now added to soften up his image and appeal to female voters.
Buying votes like a two-bit ward heeler.
While some reporter asked if he'd heard about that awful hit-and-run, and whether he was planning to bring in stiffer penalties for the guilty.
Nobody asked about the Bev Oda scandal. Or why he was campaigning when he says he doesn't want an election.
And of course he refused to answer any questions about this poll.
The federal Conservative party’s recent attack campaign appears to have worked, as a new poll suggests Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s support is up across the country.
The latest Nanos poll — conducted between Feb. 11 and Feb. 14 — shows Harper’s Wake Up ad campaign that attacked Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff and his party has resulted in a 13-point Canada-wide advantage for the Tories over the Liberals, according to poll author Nik Nanos.
Because then he'd have to pretend he doesn't care about polls. When in fact the smell of a majority has him drooling so much he has to carry a roll of toilet paper in each pocket.
Or remind people that attack ads work. Because some progressives just might start wondering why they are lying there taking it, instead of fighting back.
I can't do that eh? Even when I was a skinny teenager, and before I took martial arts, I understood that it was better to lose a fight, than roll up like a hedgehog, and let the bully kick you like a ball.
Because that way you could never hurt him, or EVER expect to win.
Stephen Harper is the worst bully in Canadian history, and unless him and his foul Cons are defeated they will DESTROY this country. It's that simple.
As is the choice facing us. We can choose to surrender.
Or we can choose to fight...
Never has a country been murdered so easily.
Attack them, attack them, attack them.
Don't let them win...
