Justin Trudeau and the Magic Honeymoon
Ever since Justin Trudeau was sworn in, and our enchanted fall began, the Con media has been attacking him like they never attacked Stephen Harper.
They denounced his decision to stop the bombing after the Paris massacre. They said it was a BIG MISTAKE that would pop his balloon.
And after Justin had been in power for about ten days, most of the MSM solemnly declared that the honeymoon was OVER.
But sadly for them, they couldn't be more wrong.
The magic honeymoon continues.
In our latest nationwide poll, fully 49% say that they would vote Liberal if there was an election today, signalling that the early choices made by the Trudeau government have been generally well received by voters. Conservative support today stands at 24% and the NDP level of support is 16%.
This is an extraordinary achievement.
Polling at 49% support means that some people who didn’t vote for the Liberals are happy enough with the early efforts of the Liberal government. Among those who now say they would vote Liberal are 17% of those who voted NDP on October 19%, 12% of those who voted BQ, 11% of those who voted Green, and 9% of those who voted Conservative.
For it shows that progressives from different parties have never been more united.
And I suggest the Con media focus more of their attention on the only one whose honeymoon is really over, the Con clown Rona Ambrose.
Now desperately playing nurse again, trying to heal her wounded party.
Familiar, experienced Conservatives will take their places on the opposition benches this week in the House of Commons, but behind them is a party that is exhausted, in organizational limbo, and only slowly beginning to plan for a leadership race.
Which is now on life support.
While trying to restrain Kellie Leitch ...
Recent signals that Ontario MP Kellie Leitch was on the verge of announcing her candidacy went over poorly among weary colleagues and party members, insiders say.
And of course, trying to control Michelle Rempel.
Who once again yesterday, tweeted this trailer from the new Star Wars movie.
Which tells you a lot about how she sees what happened to her party, and even more alarmingly, a lot about how she sees herself...
The one who will lead them to victory.
If Jason Kenney, who is reported to be suffering from exhaustion, can't catch her.
So pity Poor Rona.
And that's before we bring in electoral reform and blow them all out of the sky...
So you know that somewhere, wherever he is hiding, Stephen Harper must be screaming like a maniac.
Or living in denial...
While in the real fairy tale, Justin Trudeau is making us look good in the eyes of the world.
It is a stark contrast: Canada has come to a climate conference with a very different approach to that taken by Stephen Harper’s Conservatives, and Justin Trudeau’s government is being hailed as one of the “signs of hope” for global climate talks.
And thousands of Syrian refugees are preparing to reinforce our new message...
Canada is back.
Yes, I know, it isn't as good as this...
But we have come a long way in just six weeks.
And after the horror of the Harper years.
It is something worth celebrating...
