Uh oh. This could be ugly. I mean pretty. It looks as if Stephen Harper is badly in need of a major makeover.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s public approval ratings have reached an all-time low in 2012, and Nanos Research president Nik Nanos says the Conservatives may want to begin rehabilitating their leader’s brand this fall.
Because the omens are ominous.
EKOS President Frank Graves told The Hill Times that not since 1989 has a government seen such a significant drop in support within one year of securing a majority mandate at the polls. That year marked the beginning of the end for Brian Mulroney’s Progressive Conservative government.
He's swimming with the Great Baloney eh? Heading for the Blue Hole...or the Big Hole.... where all Cons go when they're done. Can the end be far off?
But wait, what's this???? John Ibbitson seems to think that even without a successful makeover, Great Ugly Leader could go on and on like the Energizer Bunny !!!!
Mr. Harper’s goal is to cement a new, stable coalition of Westerners and suburban Ontario voters around fundamental conservative principles: sound finances, free trade, safe streets, and an alliance-based foreign policy. He is using that coalition to make conservative values Canadian values. He will stay in power as long as it takes to achieve that goal.
But don't panic eh? Ibby is just polishing Great Ugly's behind like Aladdin's lamp, and wishing for a Senate seat. Conservative values will NEVER be Canadian values.
And we can work with that bunny...
In fact, may I suggest something even more fabulous? Something a little more
For the man who has everything but wants MORE. Who is selling this country to foreign interests. Turning Albertans into low wage slaves. And killing good jobs in Ontario with the Dutch Disease to please Canada's new masters.
You know, the cowboy from
Oh well. So much for the Great Western/Ontario alliance. So much for Stephen Harper's phony image as a strong leader. Viva El Wimpo !!! So much for his thousand year Con dynasty.
Of course, even when Harpo is cowering in his bunker as the Con regime collapses around him, staring at his shattered mirror and shouting " I AM prettier than Snow White !!!!!!!!!!"
"Or Jason Kenney....in DRAG !!!!!!!"
"Or F***ing Mother Theresa !!!!!"
There will still be some Canadians who think he was a great Prime Minister, not a fraud, a right-wing bully and tool of Big Oil, who set out to destroy Canada and its values by whatever means necessary.
But they will be idiots, or wild beasts.
And nature will take care of them...
And of course Great Ugly Leader can slap on all the mascara he wants, but he'll never fool us.
We know a predator when we see one. And by the time we finish working on his fabulous makeover.
He'll be glad when he's DEFEATED...
