Taliban quote: what the Liberals should do with it

It is high time the Liberals develop a global critique of Harper’s leadership and put his Taliban quote in some sort of context. What I would do would be claim victory in the Gordon O’Connor case.

“The defense minister was clearly in the wrong, but rather than doing the right thing and dismissing him, Harper did as he always does and that is he tried to lay the blame elsewhere. To wit:

Stephen Harper: “west of Winnipeg the ridings the Liberals hold are dominated by people who are either recent Asian immigrants or recent migrants from eastern Canada: people who live in ghettoes and who are not integrated into western Canadian society.”

Stephen Harper “I delivered [speeches] everywhere I went … about the spirit of defeatism in the country”

Stephen Harper: “Canada is a Northern Welfare state in the worst sense of the term, and very proud of it.”

From Stephen Harper’s magnum opus “Separation, Alberta-style: It is time to seek a new relationship with Canada”: “Any country with Canada’s insecure smugness and resentment can be dangerous.”

Stephen Harper: "Canada appears content to become a second-tier socialistic country, boasting ever more loudly about its economy and social services to mask its second-rate status"

For Mr. Harper either you are with him or you a smug, resentful, defeatist, slum dwelling terrorist. It is just that simple.”

How about... oh stuff it up his fat a*se as soon as he dares say it in public?
Too redneck?
Harper's too cowardly to say these things outside the HoC, the wimp.

I hope to god he is not wimping out. I only wish he would say these things everyday and not just once in awhile. He is on CPAC and he is in Hansard. It is time the Liberals force feed him his own words again and again and again.

This is unfair.

What is unfair about it? Most of these are Conservative talking points and a talking point is to get them out to the public. It is only right that the Liberals should lend a helping hand.

Amazing isn't it. Harper never lets "truth" get in the way of a bullying punch line.

Like the bullsh**t that the Liberals are holding up the crime bills when in actual fact the Conservatives are holding it up.

Finally, even Robert Fife of CTV said so this morning.

Where have the media been when it comes to truth against fiction?

I read that in a lot of cases, bullying stems from deep seated sexual problems - is that true Mr. Harper? Just wondered.
