Why Is Jason Kenney Posing As a Finance Minister?
I had been wondering where Jason Kenney had been hiding. But suddenly there he was on TV.
Having apparently traded in his job as Defence Minister, to pose as a Finance Minister.
With a new and flexible definition of the word recession.
"Most economists define a recession as a widespread downturn in the economy," Kenney told host Rosemary Barton on CBC News Network's Power & Politics on Sunday.
I'm suggesting a recession is typically defined as a widespread downturn, not a discrete sectoral downturn," he said.
Still claiming that other sectors of the economy are growing.
Kenney added that despite the hit on the oil and gas industry, other sectors of the economy continue to grow and that he remains confident the economy will end the year with positive growth.
Even though the oil downturn is not discrete.
It's a disaster.
And his claims that other sectors are growing is just a figment of his tortured imagination.
But then why should we be surprised?
When Kenney was the one who flooded the country with temporary foreign workers.
Only to claim that he was the only one who could fix the problem he had created...
And have have incompetence turn to farce.
But of course what I want to know is, if Kenney is the new Finance Minister, what happened to Joe Oliver?
Because he's still missing in action.
And what's going to happen to Michelle Rempel who has also been seen on TV filling in for Olly, and also posing as a Finance Minister...
Because that could be ugly eh?
But of course not as ugly as the moment Kenney realizes that Stephen Harper's economic policies have led the Cons and the country into another recession.
And destroyed any faint hopes he had of becoming Prime Minister...
Or for that matter not as ugly as the sight of the Con campaign bus going nowhere...
With everybody on board slowly going CRAZY.
While Stephen Harper wanders around a nearby Tim Hortons, as he did today, asking employees to tell him what to do, but just don't let him handle the cash.
(un-mute the video at the top left to hear the precious exchange)
And when you hear it, I think we can all agree. Stephen Harper is no Great Economist Leader, Jason Kenney is no Finance Minister, and neither is Michelle Rempel.
And we will not be safe, and our economy will not be secure.
Until the day we fire them ALL...
