More on Coalition 2: The Reckoning

From Aaron Wherry at Macleans:

Stephen Harper, Dec. 1.“I would certainly not want to find myself governing this economy today in a situation that required me to follow socialist economics and to be at the behest of a veto of the separatists.”

James Moore, heckling Gilles Duceppe, Dec. 1. “Traitor!”

Stephen Harper, Dec. 2. “The Canadian people made a choice to elect the Conservative Party to govern, without the support of the separatists.”

Dean Del Mastro, heckling Jack Layton, Dec. 3. “Jack, you’re a traitor.”

Stephen Harper, Dec. 3. “The Liberal Party leader proposes to help the economy by signing a pact with the Quebec sovereignists to govern the country. This is not a plan to improve the economy; it is a plan to destroy this country, which is why he should withdraw his proposal.”

Canadian Press, tonight. “The Harper government has sketched out a road map that would see it avoid an election in this recession year and survive to bask in the glory of the 2010 Olympic Games … The Tories need to stave off defeat in confidence votes until then and are considering ways to secure support from the NDP and Bloc Quebecois on a case-by-case basis … The Bloc will table its own list of economic demands Thursday, and they have been pushing for EI changes as well as a tax-harmonization deal for Quebec One senior Conservative said there will be plenty of ways for the parties to work together. ‘We’re hopeful they’d want to work with us. … Maybe cooler heads will prevail,’ he said.”

"From Aaron Wherry at Macleans"

He's the most Liberal hack in the country! We actually razz him at his blog every day about how cheap his partisan hackery is! And now he's your pal? Might as well tattoo the Liberal Party logo to your forehead, Janet, you couldn't possibly be obvious.

Did a conservative beat you when you were younger? Your hostility is off the charts, I've rarely seen anything like it.

What coalition are you talking about?

Who is getting cabinet seats from the opps? who has a veto?

When did PM Harper sign a deal that will keep the CPC in power?

No offence I don't think you really know what your talking about. It takes 1 party to keep the government in power. Only a liberal or a moron would reach the conclusion you have.

This is a minority parliment, you do understand how that works right?

Aaron Wheery, Ha,ha,ha,ha, your a liberal admit it already.

Once again I don't meen any offence, but frankly I don't think you have a clue what you are talking about.

Coalition, WTF!! are you talking about?

As I always say, Harper is not to be trusted. He is the "Anti-Conservative". He's betrayed and sold out conservatism in this country.

Harper has only himself to blame

Not just Aaron reporting this; it's also in the National Post:

The return of Hypocrite Harper.

So what’s your point with this post?
What are you implying by echoing this garbage? Do you actually believe this half witted liberal spin? Do you believe everything that journalists tell you to think?
Are all the Glibertarians still pouting about their sensitive feeling?
Still feeling “put out” that the Conservatives didn’t enact Marshall Law and force the “Liberty Luving Theology” down the throat of all Canadians whether they disagreed with it or not?
After all, most libertarians knows that their version of “Liberty” must always trump a insignificant little thing like “Democracy”.

BC - I needed a laugh this morning. Thanks.

Time for the Harpercrite to say goodbye. We have had too much of his lies and two-facedness already. Harper is the worst PM this country has ever been forced to endure.
