Tim Hudak's Sacred Oath and the Big Whopper
Well I see that Tim Hudak still will not admit that he can't count, and that his Million Job Plan is nothing but a scam.
But he has come up with a new and daring scheme to try to make it look like his platform is Canadian rather than American.
Require his cabinet ministers to swear an oath to Ontario.
Progressive Conservative Leader Tim Hudak has seized on an issue sure to be a linchpin in Tuesday’s leaders’ debate with a pledge to slap strict accountability rules on cabinet ministers if his party wins the June 12 election. Hudak says all cabinet members would have to sign an “oath to Ontario” guaranteeing they will respect taxpayer dollars, reduce red tape and never raise taxes.
As opposed to say Quebec or Alberta.
But then he had to do something eh?
To try to conceal the fact that his Million Job boondoggle was Made in America, and that he's really working for the Koch brothers.
But sadly for him, every time he tries to call something "The Truth" as he does in this latest ad...
It turns out to be just another collection of whoppers.
This is the latest ad from the Ontario Progressive Conservatives. They call it “Truth”. But in fact, it features their leader saying at least one thing that is demonstrably and unequivocally untrue and one other statement that is unlikely to be true.
A million people didn't wake up this morning without a job in Ontario.
Nope. Sorry. That’s not the truth. Not even close to the truth. In some joints, that would be a called a flat-out lie.
Statistics Canada says that there are 555,000 Ontarians who want a job but do not have one. Not a million. About half that many. But, say some Hudak apologists, what about those who have a part-time job but really want a full-time job? To you I say: Whether or not they like the job they have, those people still “woke up this morning” with a job.
And as for his claim that no new jobs will be created if the Ontario government does nothing, well that's not true either.
In fact, an economist the Progressive Conservatives themselves are citing today as evidence that their Million Jobs Plan can work is actually saying quite the opposite, that doing nothing would at least create half-a-million jobs and would quite likely create a million new jobs.
Which of course makes his plan to kill 100,000 good jobs even more ridiculous...
But then who can blame him for being desperate? Or blame the police for going after him.
"There is no room for the divisive "Tea Party" style politics that Mr. Hudak would bring to Ontario. From what we have seen during his past as Leader of the Opposition through to the illogical present day promise to fire one hundred thousand people to try and create one million jobs, it is clear that Mr. Hudak subscribes to the far right wing teachings that have led to chaos in the "Right to Work" states south of the border."
When even they know that Hudak is working for the Koch brothers, not the province of Ontario.
And they know a Con artist when they see one...
Which of course leaves the wouldbe Con "Crime Buster" caught in yet another compromising position...
And what are the ordinary people of Ontario to conclude?
Oh that's easy eh?
Tim Hudak speaks with a forked tongue.
He doesn't know what he's doing.
And of course, you can't put lipstick on a Con gila...
