The Conservatives Told Lies - to Themselves...
There are still many people in denial. Today, in Facebook, a friend of mine wrote that:
The Liberals won this election not by proving to Canadians that they could do a better job but by convincing low information voters that Stephen Harper is the devil incarnate.And, here is my reply:
If you really believe what you have written, then the Conservatives are in a pile of trouble. The Conservatives ran a horrible campaign with no ideas, let alone the fact that they squandered a majority government doing....what, well, nothing at all. No big plans, no big thinking, no philosophy, no nothing...the harper Conservatives were timid conservatives...and they were nasty. Their spokespeople were completely vapid - Paul Calandra made Pierre Poilievre seem Churchillian...and Poilievre was pretty bad. The Harper conservatives deserved to lose, and if there is not some major introspection, then we can look forward to opposition for many years.The Conservatives were the ones telling lies. We were fooling ourselves by saying we were the principled party - when in fact, we were just nasty and vindictive. We were the ones who enaged in negative advertising and we changed the rules to allow for more spending...just because we had more money. Who was fooling who? We fooled ourselves.
Please go out and buy my book. I write about a lot of this and I have a way forward for Canada. Plus, I also go after the left.
