Why Is the Con Clown Joe Oliver Missing In Action?
The economy is teetering on the edge of disaster. The stock market is on a wild roller coaster ride. The loonie or Harper peso has fallen to its lowest level in eleven years. Thousands are losing their jobs.
But Joe Oliver, the alleged Con FInance Minister, is nowhere to be seen.
He has held no newsers, issued no reassuring statements to worried Canadians. He has been missing in action.
And it seems the only Canadians he's willing to talk to are the rich old guys at private men's clubs.
For the second day in a row, Conservative candidate Joe Oliver has cancelled plans to speak to a private club in his role as finance minister. Mr. Oliver was scheduled to deliver a speech Wednesday in his capacity as finance minister on “the future of the Canadian economy” to a private men’s club.
Or was, until he had to hurriedly cancel his fundraising opportunity, at that bastion of...um...musty masculinity.
A profile of the Cambridge Club in the Financial Post this year said Mr. Oliver, who spent most of his career on Bay Street, first joined the club when it opened in 1973. The article described the club as being “every inch a masculine refuge” with bound volumes of Playboy magazine filling most of one shelf.
One member described the club in the article as “one of the last bastions of manhood.”
Can you believe that? I knew Oily Oliver was about a hundred years old, possibly senile, and hopelessly incompetent...
But who knew that he was such a stud or an old-fashioned sexist?
And although that did lead to a memorable moment when Chrystia Freeland crashed the club only to be confronted by the sight of a guy in a bathrobe.
A Toronto men's club catering to Bay Street's "influencers," "philosophers" and "party animals" has been thrust into the election spotlight. University-Rosedale Liberal candidate Chrystia Freeland crashed the private Cambridge Club on Wednesday aiming to speak to the media ahead of a planned speech by Conservative Finance Minister Joe Oliver.
And even though it was hilarious in a scary sort of way. Who knew clubs like that still existed? Do they have a secret handshake and are these clowns really running Bay Street?
The Cambridge Club caters to the Bay Street crowd, according to its website. “Let’s hear it for the Bay Street Boys, the contenders, the connoisseurs, the tastemakers and the suits. Here’s to the early birds, the influencers, the philosophers, the party animals and the class clowns," the website says.
You have to wonder what Oliver was thinking, if he's still capable of doing that.
Or for that matter wonder who came up with the dumb idea of having the hapless Michelle Rempel fill in for the useless Olly on TV shows like Power and Politics?
Where yesterday she made an absolute fool of herself AND acted like a rude pig. By insisting on referring to Justin Trudeau as just Justin. Even after Chrystia Freeland, who as you can see had a busy day, asked her to call him Mr Trudeau.
And of course, because while the boorish Rempel may know something about fundraising and wine tasting.
Taxpayers could be feeling sour grapes after a Conservative cabinet minister was spotted mixing and mingling public and party business.
You might even say Michelle Rempel, Canada's Minister for Western Diversification ("& sommelier"), sunk to a brand new merlot for pairing official government business with a Conservative Party wine tasting fundraiser for an unelected Edmonton-area Conservative candidate at the end of June.
And one can only hope that she hadn't had too much wine before she appeared on Power and Politics. Although that would explain her rude behaviour.
That absurd Con Miss Muffet knows NOTHING about high finance.
And this is how she looked when the host asked her whether the Cons were now running a deficit. Not a healthy surplus like her Great Leader keeps claiming...
She couldn't answer the question, she dodged it shamelessly. And for a very good reason.
Since Oliver's budget was based on oil at $56 a barrel, and it's now hovering around $37 a barrel, or about the price of a case of beer. The Cons aren't growing the economy, they're growing a massive DEFICIT.
Which just happens to be why they are hiding Oliver. They can't trust him to remember his PMO lines. And claim that they still have a surplus.
Even though, like Rempel, he is just another hopeless stooge of the deranged former mail room clerk Stephen Harper, who would pass himself off as a Great Economist Leader....
When Harper couldn't have made more of a mess of the economy, and is nothing but a liar and a Con artist.
You know, it's frightening to think that there are so many suckers in this country who believe that deranged leader's bullshit. His shameful hollow boasts, his pathological lies.
But no sane person should be fooled. If those Con artists aren't removed from office, as soon as humanly possible.
They will wreck our economy, and they will kill our country.....
