Well I see that even before Thomas Mulcair rose in the Commons today, the Cons sent out one of their attack chihuahas to try to "define him." Or in their mob lingo, bite his
“This hug-a-thug, soft-on-crime leader will return Canada to policies favoring the rights of criminals over those of victims,” said Mr. Watson who labelled Mr. Mulcair an “opportunist” with a “divisive personality” and “ruthless ambition.”
But since the designated chihuahua was the Con wingnut Jeff Watson, and he probably said worse things about Nick Kouvalis.
Justice Lloyd Dean acknowledged testimony by two campaign workers who told the court they heard Nick Kouvalis say, "If I could ... kill Jeff Watson with my bare hands and get away with it, I would."
Who cares eh? That's the kind of people they are.
Just like who cares what the buffoon Dean Del Mastro had to say when he told Evan Solomon that the Cons didn't have to launch attack ads against Mulcair because Ed Broadbent had already done that for them?
Because as I told you the other day, he's just been promoted to Con Klown (second class) ...
And he's so dumb he'll say ANYTHING.
But what's Murray Dobbin's excuse?
One prominent NDPer I spoke to responded to my shock that he was supporting Mulcair with a sort of football game enthusiasm. "I think he can take on the bastard [Harper]."
Facing a ruthless tough guy? Get your own ruthless tough guy. And possibly create a monster you can't control. It is as if policy, philosophy, and vision for the country have simply been devalued to the point where they are an afterthought or some vaguely interesting historical relic.
Because let's face it eh? If Murray doesn't understand that "football game enthusiasm" to bring down the Harper Regime, or how millions of Canadians feel about the "bastard Harper." He should pass the bong, and the Sacred Flame to light up the BC Bud. Because after reading that defeatist drivel, I feel I need some too.
As for me, I thought Mulcair got off to an excellent start. So did Chantal Hebert.
It is too early to predict that Thomas Mulcair will fit that bill in three years but on this — the very first week of his tenure as NDP leader — he is starting off looking like the strongest challenger to emerge from the opposition ranks in half-a-dozen years.
And Lawrence Martin thinks he's the right man for the job.
Mulcair’s ascension, as it should, has all parties worried. He is capable of out-debating Harper, he is capable of blocking a resurgence of the Bloc Quebecois and for the Liberals, he could spell despair.
So if the Cons, or The Keepers of the Sacred Flame, think they can intimidate or undermine a guy like Mulcair. I suggest they give themselves a reality check, or beat the
Or just watch this video...
Can you believe it eh? A politician who actually uses the word Dutch Disease.
The made in Alberta economic illness that has killed 500,000 manufacturing jobs in this country. And if used against the Cons could wipe them off the map in Quebec, Ontario, and British Columbia, where most of those jobs were lost.
Does that look like a wimp who will be easily intimidated? Or a a right-wing monster out of control? Or a serious opposition leader who could one day lead the NDP and other progressives to power?
Hey Cons, shove it where the sun don't shine, and try to stay out of prison eh? Hey Murray, gimme another toke.
The bastard Harper's future looks bruising. Excellent.
Go Tom go...
