Stephen Harper's Attack Ads Backfire Badly
Oh dear. It looks as if Stephen Harper's attempt to screw Justin Trudeau has backfired badly.
He was hoping to stick a few pins into Justin's dolly.
But instead he finds himself pulling them out of his own
A poll conducted by EKOS between Wednesday and Friday of this week found that 84 per cent of respondents found the ads were negative and 71 per cent said the ads didn’t affect their view of Trudeau.
Among those who said the ads did affect their view of the new Liberal leader, 16 per cent said it improved their view of him while only 9 per cent said it had the negative impact the Conservatives had intended.
So much for the Great Con Attack Machine. The one the eats itself.
“Moreover, the global emotional impact on most viewers was very harsh. The ads appear to have done far more damage to the authors of the ads (the Conservative party) than the intended target.”
Among the phrases respondents used the most often to describe the ads were “disgusting,” “vicious,” “unfair,” “amusing” and “stupid.”
For this must be a devastating blow for a party whose polls are heading south, and a leader who still doesn't get it eh?
When people really hate you, as so many hate Stephen Harper, it doesn't really matter what you say, it all sounds bad. And when you attack others, like so many others would like to attack you, it only makes them hate you more. Duh.
Or the shorter version: what worked when the Con regime was young and almost fresh, doesn't work when it's old and rotting. And so many are so tired of this neverending freak show.
And Great Ugly's pervert games.
Golly. I wonder what that ridiculous old flasher is saying now?
And what is Justin saying?
And what am I saying?
What Chantal Hebert said.
At this juncture an overwhelming majority of Canadians — around 70 per cent — agree as to the prime minister that they do not want, even if it means replacing Harper with an untested Liberal leader or an untried federal NDP.
Canadians prefer the NDP, the Liberals or ANYONE but Harper.
And this too...
Harper’s predicament is more akin to a multiplication of slow leaks than a major puncture. That could make it harder to fix.
The air is leaking out of the bully.
OMG. I think I can hear Great Ugly now: "Kenney !!!! Kenney !!!! Get down there and BLOW !!@#!!!"
And its so horrible, and yet so BEAUTIFUL. Especially since Harper was trying to soften his image, and he can forget about that now.
Oh well. If you want an even more profound comment, ask me later eh?
Just not on a Friday night.
And not when I'm laughing like old Bobby...
Although I think I can manage this. *Gasp*
When a government, like a fish, rots from the head down it's stinky.
But when it rots from both ends it's worse, and sooner or later it's OVER.
Yup. Enjoy the freak show. First we laugh at them. Then we hit them with OUR attack ads.
And then we DESTROY them...
