Justin Trudeau and the Desperate Con Losers
Well Justin Trudeau's fairy tale visit to Washington is over.
And no doubt the entire Trudeau family is resting up after their extraordinary performance...
Including the youngest member who also did his part to win over the Americans.
And so successful was the visit that even the Con friendly L. Ian MacDonald was forced to admit that Trudeau had a very good week.
Three things were quite clear during Trudeau’s day at the White House and State Department on Thursday. First, he has made a strong personal connection with Barack Obama (they’re calling it a ‘bromance’). Second, the White House spared nothing in the warmth of its welcome. Third, the president made sure the U.S. system engaged for Trudeau and the Canadian delegation in a way it hasn’t since the Mulroney years.
Trudeau has enjoyed two excellent weeks in Vancouver and Washington. And he deserves full marks. He’s shown that he has a sense of occasion. He’s shown that he belongs at this level. And he has now taken ownership of the two biggest files on a PM’s desk.
But don't expect the demoralized members of the Harper Party to celebrate, or even grudgingly acknowledge that tour de force.
Because all that can be heard coming from their shrunken corner of the universe, is a most frightful squealing sound.
The honking sound of Candice Bergen going absolutely hog wild.
In question period, Conservative MP and natural resources critic Candice Bergen said the prime minister, select cabinet ministers, lobbyists, and Liberal donors were "partying it up" in Washington, D.C. in the midst of job crisis in Western Canada.
"The prime minister seems too busy trying to get a pat on the head from President Obama and his anti-oil activists to bother standing up for Canadian jobs," she charged.
As only that Con can. Who clearly believes that Trudeau should have stayed at home, and instead of standing up for our economic interests, and our values, and working on ways to fight climate change. Should restrict himself to taking the blame for Harper's legacy, and promoting the interests of Big Oil.
And of course she's extremely disappointed that like her fallen leader, she was not invited to the state dinner.
And sadly she's not alone in her bitter delusions. For the Con MP they call Nutty, is also squealing up a storm and accusing the Liberals of porky behaviour.
Tory MP Alex Nuttall also took a shot at the fact that Liberal party bigwigs and donors made the guest list for the state dinner.
"When will Liberals start helping all Canadians rather than just those who fatten their coffers and fill their trough?" he wondered.
Even though everybody knows that Cons and troughs were made for each other...
And then there's Jason Kenney, who if you remember accused Justin Trudeau of insulting the Americans during a 60 Minutes interview.
Even though him and his equally depraved fallen leader all but declared war on the Obama White House, went so far to bully an American ambassador.
And even though the Americans, and their President, couldn't have embraced Trudeau more warmly.
And if that wasn't bad enough then there's Tony Clement, who accused Trudeau of taking so many ministers and government officials to Washington he had left Canada unguarded or ungoverned.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is taking too much of a risk by bringing so many of the key decision makers in his inner circle with him on his trip to Washington, says Conservative Foreign Affairs Critic Tony Clement.
Clement said the only time the Conservative government came close to such a large number of key decision makers out of the country at the same time was Harper’s trip to Israel but it pales in comparison to Trudeau’s trip.
When in fact because Team Canada was so big, it was able to mount a massive lobbying blitz which helped make the trip so successful.
And since Canada's trade with Israel is insignificant compared to that of our biggest trading partner, the Con trip was the real junket...
But then what else can we expect? When Clement is running for the Con leadership and will do anything to be noticed.
Even if that apparently means running around naked in the snow...
And as even The Sun is forced to admit, the Cons are just sore losers.
When in 2016 will Canadian Conservatives realize the 2015 federal election is over? Newsflash to former Conservative cabinet ministers: Justin Trudeau won and is Prime Minister of Canada until at least 2019.
They are using a shot gun strategy of attacks that at the end of the day makes them irrelevant. In short, they sound like sore losers. And nobody likes a sore loser.
Conservatives need to pick their spots and issues in opposition or the public will tune them out.
Because that is what is happening. Canadians are tuning them out. Their numbers aren't moving. Their donor base is shrinking. Now that they can't harvest bigotry, some of their supporters are apparently sending their money to Donald Trump instead of them.
And the reason the Cons are squealing so loudly is because they're ALL desperate to be noticed.
That's why they're running ads like this one...
Even if it only makes them look even MORE desperate.
And to make matters worse, it's hard to see how Rona Ambrose can make her party look relevant, or make that sorry gang of losers look more exciting.
Short of trying to emulate her husband who used to be a rodeo bull rider.
And try to kick up the excitement factor a notch...
By riding that grunting beast to victory or oblivion.
But yes, isn't it great to think that in just a week it will finally be Spring?
The first Con-free Spring this country has had in almost a decade.
And that we are REALLY going to enjoy it, knowing that the Cons can squeal all they like.
But they are just bad and bitter losers.
And they aren't going anywhere...
