Stephen Harper's Really REALLY Bad Day
Well I can only imagine what Stephen Harper must have been feeling like when he returned to his war room or his rubber room last night.
But he must have been fit to be tied, or bouncing off the walls.
Because he couldn't have had a worse day. There just wasn't ANY good news.
It was all horrible...
In the morning there was the sickening peegate scandal. Which made most Canadians want to vomit.
And left Harper squirming with embarrassment and looking more than a little crazy...
And then only a few hours later there was the even more shocking story of the hooded Con pervert.
The Conservative campaign has dropped another Toronto candidate over offensive and embarrassing online videos.
Tim Dutaud, who was running for the Tories in Toronto-Danforth, was forced out Monday after he was identified as a man known as the UniCaller in prank YouTube videos that included him pretending to orgasm while on the phone with a female customer service representative and mocking people with mental disabilities.
Which I think we can all agree is not exactly the image Harper wants his Cons to convey....
Not when it probably made even more Canadians wonder who will save them from his depraved regime?
And of course vow never to let a Con candidate into their homes, or have coffee with them.
Or believe ANYTHING they say...
And as if all of that wasn't enough to drive Harper over the edge.
Then this came this latest really bad poll.
As the marathon federal election campaign passes its halfway mark, it appears that Stephen Harper’s Conservatives are losing support while Tom Mulcair’s New Democrats have pulled into the lead. And Justin Trudeau’s Liberals are close behind the NDP.
Which suggests that nothing he is doing is working, and that he is haemorrhaging or leaking support...
And that's before today's scandals are taken into account, and before the Bruce Carson trial begins in six days.
Which as you can imagine can only tarnish his image further.
But the best news is that Nanos also suggests that one of the main reasons his numbers are tanking is his appalling response or non response to the refugee crisis.
Support for the Conservative Party declined on the long weekend after a week that saw Leader Stephen Harper on the defensive over the economy and the government’s response to the international migrant crisis, a new poll shows. The Nanos survey conducted for The Globe and Mail and CTV News suggests many Canadians switched their voting intentions in recent days.
“What’s gone well for the Conservative campaign so far? Not much,” said Mr. Nanos, who believes the issue of Syrian refugees was the trigger for the party’s recent decrease in popularity.
Because firstly it suggests that many Canadians have been revolted by his lack of action and callous behaviour...
And that even some of his base may be deserting him.
Which is a problem because he can't win them back by bringing in more refugees, without alienating the other sixty percent who are violently opposed to the idea.
And secondly, it also suggests that because the reaction is so visceral, Canadians may forget a lot of his crimes.
But they will not easily forget this one...
And it will haunt him all the way to the next election.
Which is as it should be, for right from the start of the refugee crisis his behaviour couldn't have been more appalling.
So appalling in fact, that now even his ghastly attack ads can be used against him.
As I have tried to point out in this little video I made last night...
Because when his own attack ads only make him look more like a monster, you know he's in trouble. And that some things will neither be forgotten nor forgiven.
Of course, there are still 40 days to go before the election, and he is still capable of anything.
Last night he fired off FIVE French-language attack ads aimed at the NDP. So he is clearly in a panic.
But there can be no doubt that the Anyone But Harper movement is growing. He has never looked weaker, or more desperate, or more disgusting.
His summer campaign has been an absolute disaster.
And October has never looked brighter...
