The Madness of Stephen Harper and the Unusual Wisdom of Margaret Wente
According to the Ottawa rumour mill Stephen Harper is now so obsessed with Justin Trudeau, that none of his faithful flunkies dare mention Justin's name in his presence.
Lest he fall to his knees and start biting the carpet, or THEM.
And for more evidence of that all you have to do is look at the speech he delivered today at of all places the Canadian Heritage War Museum
Because it's crazy stuff.
In a speech at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum in Hamilton on Thursday night, Harper took aim at several of Trudeau's past statements, from terrorism to China.
He noted neither the Liberals nor the New Democrats have supported his government's law and order reforms. Harper accused the opposition parties of believing criminals are victims of society.
Even though there are so many Cons on trial it's hard to keep up with action. Even though his government's crime bills have been rejected one after the other because they are so badly written or unconstitutional.
And when you have to rely on this routine to rile up the rednecks:
Harper also alluded to opposition criticism of his government's handling of foreign policy, referring to a comment Trudeau once made about admiring China and asked how many Canadians want to live there. "My point is that Justin Trudeau didn't really want to answer that question because the answer is too obvious," Harper said. "The best country and the best government in the world is Canada's!"
After selling us out to China...
You're either desperate or crazy or BOTH.
And since he followed that up by criticizing the RCMP for enforcing what's left of our gun laws.
Harper also reached out to gun owners, apparently alluding to a recent decision by the RCMP to ban a previously legal rifle, the Swiss Arms Classic Green carbine. Harper said it's completely unacceptable that owners of the weapons should be subject to an "arbitrary stroke of a bureaucrat's pen."
You really have to wonder whether he is still fit to remain in office.
Because not only is he sounding more deluded AND dangerous.
He STILL doesn't seem to understand that Trudeau is so popular because Canadians hate HIM so much.
And that because he's been around so long most Canadians by now can't stand the sight of him.
For you know the situation really is critical when even some of Margaret Wentes's friends are deserting him.
Something alarming happened over the summer – several of my friends came down with Harper Derangement Syndrome. “He’s gotta go!” fumed one middle-aged man who had voted for him three times in a row.
So, do they think Justin Trudeau (or Thomas Mulcair) would run the country any better? They shrugged. The question didn’t interest them. What does interest them is getting rid of Mr. Harper.
When nothing Harper says or does makes him more popular than Justin.
The Tories have blasted Mr. Trudeau for lacking substance, but the country doesn’t care. The pundits have blasted him for being vague about his policies, but people don’t care about that either. As Brian Mulroney aptly observed, Mr. Trudeau’s major platform is that he’s not Stephen Harper. For now, that’s enough.
And even our very own Marie Antoinette thinks his situation is hopeless.
The best thing Mr. Harper could do to improve his re-election prospects would be to undergo a radical personality transplant. Unfortunately, that is still beyond the means of science. He is who he is, and he can’t help it.
And as I pointed out the other night, she isn't the only one eh?
You know, I believe Margaret Wente may finally have had an original thought. Unless she also plagiarized that one from someone else.
He is indeed who he is, he really can't help it. He can't do the one thing that could save him.
Time is his enemy.
And by pursuing his crazed obsession with destroying Justin Trudeau.
He will only make himself even less popular.
And may well end up destroying HIMSELF...
