On the eve of an election call, Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he’s anticipating a “very nasty” campaign from the opposition parties, in an exclusive interview with CTV News.
In an exclusive interview with Harper to be broadcast Sunday on CTV’s Question Period, he said he expects the opposition parties to try to demonize him.
“To be really honest, I anticipate a very nasty, kind of personal-attack campaign,” he told Lloyd Robertson, CTV’s chief news anchor and senior news editor, at Harrington Lake.
“That’s just what I’m anticipating; that’s what the opposition’s done in the past. I think that whether Canadians agree with what we’re doing or not, I don’t think they’re going to believe the kind of personal attacks and scare tactics that we’ve seen in the past.”
And here is the clean “campaigning” from the dip shit himself.
Less than 24 hours into the Oct. 14 federal election campaign, senior Conservatives came out swinging before dawn today at Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion, painting him as someone whose policies will devastate Canadian families and “make everything more expensive.”
At a 6 a.m. ET news conference — so the party can try to set the news agenda as early in the day as possible — high-profile Tories Jason Kenney and Lawrence Cannon attacked Mr. Dion for what they called his “triple threat” to Canadians.
The Conservatives say the Liberal Leader wants to raise the GST, claw back a $1,200 child-care benefit and impose a carbon tax.
Mr. Kenney said Mr. Dion’s “half-baked risky schemes” are devastating to families on their own. But, taken together, it’s “three strikes and you’re out.”
This is the reason why I hate, detest and loathe the uber conservatives. Hypocrite little shits.
Update : For more BS from Stephen Crapper.
Asked whether he saw his chief rival as a family man, he said: “I don’t know Stephane Dion all that well. I presume that he’s been married a long time, has children. I presume he’s a family man also.”
Dion has a wife and daughter.
“I Presume him to be a family man”???? That’s the best soft side you got, Stephen? You have got to be kidding me about this.
Why was it so difficult to say that “yes, despite our political differences, Stephen Dion is a family man”. This is the reason why conservatives are so full of bull shit. In an unguarded moment, with no script lying in front of him, the prime minister of Canada “presumes” his rival to be a family man.
Excuse me, I need to go an hurl.
Dude, the criticism you quote is about Dion’s policies. That is completely fair game.
Do some research on “Not a leader”, “I don’t know Dion, and don’t know if he has a family”, and the whole making fun of the fact that English is his second language.
You are right that small minded childish conservatives are hypocritical, but we got to compare and contrast policy if we are going to make informed decisions!
Anyhow, I’ve read several of your last posts and you do some good work, I’m adding you to my reading list.
Yes, but my argument isn’t about Dion’s policies which I agree is fair game.
But in this post I lament about Harper saying one thing and doing exactly the opposite. And that’s what we have seen from his government; Be it Income Trusts, be it Ethics or be it Afghanistan.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I like your blog as well, especially the title – Yearning Mice on Fire – what does it mean?
Your point is taken. As for the title of the blog, well, the wife rolled me over in my sleep and asked me what a good name for the blog would be. That was what I said. Then I woke up.
