Debate Review

The English-language debate last night can be summed up as follows: Everybody at the table kept trying to convince Stephen Harper he was a conservative; he kept reassuring them that he wasn't.

Haha - you are spot on; I laughed out loud at this. I could not bear to watch. Four socialists and a former conservative trying to seem as centre as possible. The other 90% of the time I spent admiring Palin and wishing we could have a strong right-wing woman who is pro-life and pro-victory. Sigh.

Harper stopped being a conservative about 5 minutes after he campaigned as one. Now he's a Bay Street boy.

Gerry, so true. Good one!

To those who critisize Harper for not being conservative enough, I would ask what they expected. You can be an idealist or get elected.

If Harper would attempt or promise to implement what this country needs, do you actually think he'd win an election. The people who complain he is not conservative enough are as guilty as the "Pie in the Sky" dreamers who vote for Layton or the Liberals who promise to make the world right if only we believed.

In response to the statement that Harper is not conservative enough, I fail to see anything conservative at all.
