I always knew Rona Ambrose was hopelessly incompetent. I knew that she had managed to bungle every job she was ever given.
I knew she made people laugh without trying, and for all the wrong reasons.
But who knew she was a REAL stand-up comedian?
Who would dare to suggest that Justin Trudeau should follow Stephen Harper's playbook.
Conservative interim Leader Rona Ambrose is concerned that the "very new and untested" Liberal government is ill-prepared to deal with the economy and she wants to meet with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to offer her help.
Ambrose said the Liberal government should take a page from the playbook of former prime minister Stephen Harper, who during the 2008 financial crisis, released a federal budget early to put anxious Canadians at ease.
When in fact the last thing Justin Trudeau needs is her help, or Harper's playbook. Not when it's Harper's oily policies that have led us to the verge of economic disaster.
And what Ambrose forgets to mention is that the only reason Harper released an early budget back then, was because the Governor General Michaëlle Jean made that a condition for granting his request to prorogue Parliament.
To avoid being overthrown by a progressive coalition...
Which is not something Ambrose should be boasting about.
Especially since the only reason Harper agreed to stimulate the economy in that budget was because the opposition forced him to do that.
And that if they hadn't, the recession would have been even worse than it was.
Because Harper and his incompetent Con clowns were NEVER the solution only the problem...
So while I'm glad that Justin Trudeau put Ambrose in her place.
Trudeau says he won't take any lessons from the Conservatives on fiscal management.
"For ten years we've had a government that has been focused on cutting its way into balance and not focused on the kind of growth that Canadians need.
We all need to do more of that, and remind Canadians who is really to blame for the state of our economy.
For as I warned the other day...
Those who allow this Con myth to become embedded will live to regret it. https://t.co/uXYbtxhRPx #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/d7MBnaejCq

The Cons are still playing the same dirty game of blaming others instead of themselves.
And they must not be allowed to get away with it.
We must nip that myth or that latest Big Lie in the bud, and keep hammering home this message:
Stephen Harper was no Great Economist Leader.
Rona Ambrose doesn't know what she is doing or saying.
The Cons are shameless and incompetent clowns.
And we will not be safe until we can wield electoral reform like a blunt weapon.
And drive them from power forever...
