I’ll admit, when I posted started the topic on the BT Forums I was a bit concerned, mainly because I’d watched all the left-leaning posters come out in full force on the CBC website or even Twitter and I immediately thought the worst.
Then I watched the video – And then I looked at the comments saying how the Prime Minister hated homosexuals, and women -That it was somehow proven fact by this video that was recorded.
So I watched the video again. And you know what, I didn’t notice the references mentioned above from those people who were so eager to call Prime Minister Harper out for being so socially intolerant, sexist and whatever else.
Okay, okay, so he mentioned the Bloc as Separatists! In the context of them having a say in a possible Coalition. But come on, he’s the Prime Minister of CANADA! Is Separatist such a taboo word that it can’t be mentioned?
Why would anyone, Liberal, NDP, or even Green make a deal to run a government with a Separatist Party (whose goal is to leave Canada!) having any powers as far as governing the Nation that they don’t even want to be apart of?
Did he talk about the NDP and the Liberals? Yes, he did.
Did he talk about Conservative Party policies? Yes, he did!
Did he talk about what he felt, both as the Leader of the CPC AND as the Head of the Federal Government? Yes, he did!
Did he talk about the Governments accomplishments versus what was stalled by the Opposition? Yes, he did!
Left-wingers want Canadians to believe that this is so bad. Is it,really?
Jack Layton goes on and on how he can’t dare to and won’t support anything that the Conservatives put out! – That seems pretty bad to me. But, I guess that’s OK because he’s not a Conservative, so that’s allowed. NDPers go on about evil Conservative, pro-capitalist policies, but that’s OK too…
Harper mentions what the Government has done despite immovable opposition! The man says he wants to be able to get back to balanced budgets, have tougher crime legislation, less stall tactics in the Senate, changes to the court system to help the real victims, he talks about the gun registry, wanting a strong, useful military to protect this country! Normal, everyday issues among other perfectly LEGITIMATE issues!
The PM is talking to Conservative Party supporters who want to see conservative policy! How is that different from any other party leader when they speak to a group of their membership?
At least Harper is talking POLICY and PROGRESS!
The Liberal Leader, all he says is that the Liberals are better! Yet, he won’t say why – even to his supporters, MPs and Senators!
The Liberals “Can do better?”
OK – How? They’ve had since at least November 12th 2008 to start explaining! So far, nothing…
Don’t slam Mr. Harper because he’s the only one who talks about getting the job done, or wanting to do things, and that he actually explains HOW and WHY!
