It couldn't have been a more pathetic sight. An angry Stephen Harper lashing out at everybody but himself.
Looking absolutely desperate, and sounding like a robot.
Growing visibly more angry with every allegation coming from a senator that he appointed, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said during question period on Tuesday that Mike Duffy has shown no remorse for claiming ineligible expenses and should be removed from the Senate.
Answering almost every question exactly the same way, to try to make sure his scripted message made the news.
"On our side, there is one person responsible for this deception. That person is Mr. Wright." "It is Mr. Wright by his own admission. For that reason, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Wright no longer works for us. Mr. Duffy shouldn't either," Harper said.
While trying to dodge this one:
If Duffy's expenses were "inappropriate" as Harper said again Tuesday, why did the Conservative Party pay for the senator's legal fees?, Mulcair asked. Harper did not directly answer the question saying only that he has said "it was inappropriate all along."
And shafting his loyal servant Nigel Wright in the most disgusting and cowardly manner, to try to save himself.
Harper launched a blistering attack Tuesday on his former chief of staff, likening him to disgraced Sen. Mike Duffy whom he characterized as a liar who should be tossed off the “public payroll.”
Only to end up looking like a man at the end of his rope, trying to decide whether to call a taxi or an AMBULANCE...
But then who can blame him eh?
When the scandal is KILLING him in the polls.
A new poll suggests dramatic allegations from Senator Mike Duffy about PMO pressure and manipulation over a $90,000 repayment of his Senate expenses has cost Prime Minister Harper federal voter support in Ontario, the province where narrow victories helped to gave the Conservatives a majority government in 2011 and where the Conservatives are also pinning hopes for a second majority in the next federal general election.
And to add insult to injury, when Canadians are asked to choose who they believe, him or Mike Duffy, they believe Ol' Duff.
When it comes to the Senate expense scandal, more Canadians believe beleaguered Senator Mike Duffy’s story over Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s version of events, according to a new poll.
Some 40 per cent of respondents said they believed Duffy’s tale – including the circumstances surrounding the infamous $90,000 cheque supplied by former chief of staff Nigel Wright - while only 18 per cent think Harper’s telling the truth.
Which means that even if Harper serves up Duffy's head on a platter to pleasure his rabid base at the Con convention, it won't help him become more popular with other Canadians.
Not when he's fallen so low, even Ol' Duff is more plausible than he is....
“Mr. Duffy, who was in a lot of trouble with the public not long ago, is now seen as considerably more plausible in terms of his position than the Prime Minister of Canada,” said Frank Graves, president of Ekos Research Associates Inc.
Gawd. Talk about Duffy's revenge. That one must REALLY hurt.
And of course this could be FATAL.
If it turns out Harper lied or misled Parliament or the public about his role in the scandal more than two-thirds of Canadians think the prime minister should immediately resign, the poll says.
For as I've always said the damage is cumulative. So many Canadians are so sick and tired of Harper, for them Senate scandal is just an excuse to get rid of him. Or hate him even MORE.
And it will haunt him as long as he remains in power. If the police don't arrest him first.
Yup. The cowardly Con robot can repeat his lines. Or shank his buddies.
But his battery is running low.
And he IS going down...
P.S. Don't just take my word for that eh?
Because I checked with some of MY robots tonight.
And they agree with me...
Yes, I think we can all agree on that.
Robo Harper is desperate and dangerous.
And must be
