If Canadians Want a Liberal, It Won't be Mulcair

Sorry Dippers, your guy is a liberal and Canadians' Liberal of choice is the guy whose hair is on his head, not his face.

NatPo's latest poll finds if Canadians had a chance to vote today, they would elect a strong Liberal minority government led by Trudeau while consigning you New Dems to the cellar yet again.

The Lesson - the Layton/Mulcair shift to the right is the New Dems' death march.   That's just as Murray Dobbins foretold earlier this week in The Tyee.

The Good News - now, more than ever, Canada needs a strong voice from the left, the very thing the NDP has always done best.  When the NDP is at its best, Canada - the whole country - is better off for it.   You don't need to capture 24 Sussex Drive to best serve Canada.   But you still have a long way to go.   You have to clean house and sweep out this centrist bullshit.   Think Douglas, think Lewis, think Broadbent.

I think the phrase "death march" might be a bit of an exaggeration but your overall point is certainly correct. Unfortunately for everyone, we probably will have no clear idea what Trudeau really stands for when or if he becomes PM.

We are cursed with living in interesting, if frustrating, times.

Jeezus, has everyone not listened? Mulcair reneged on his, no tar sands oil. Justin Trudeau, just reneged on his, no pipeline into BC. Did not anyone notice? Elizabeth May was the only one who stood up for Canadians. She called Harper on his Treason. The rest of the politician morons, did not say one damned word, the useless twits that they are.

We also know and so do the other, useless twits of politicians. Harper cheated to win the election. I don't know why we are paying for the Liberals and the NDP salary's and gold plated pensions. None of them are, worth the powder to blow them to hell. All they do, is whine about how evil and mean Harper is. That's a crock of, you know what. They are right in on it with Harper. They try to sit there and say, they can't do anything about Harper and his Treason, lies, deceit, dirty tactics, dirty politics and his cheating to win. You damned right, they have got rid of other politicians they don't want. Sadly, it is the honest politicians, they want to get rid of.

What kind of idiots, would sell their country out, to an evil Communist country? No decent, honest politician would. Neither would they stand for that, unless they wanted to.

As I said long ago. Any province that doesn't want to be swallowed up by Red China, had better get the hell out of Harper's evil Canada. This country isn't Canada anymore anyhow.

Don't forget what Flaherty said? Harper is going to do something very stupid. Perhaps people should read. Harper gives a speech in New york, at the Council of Foreign relations. This was Sept 25/2007. Is this going to be the stupid thing Harper does? I can't remember anything Harper has ever done, that wasn't stupid.

Only a stereotypical anonymous poster would even think to use the term "evil Communist country" with out a big dose of irony..doubt if Mays would thank you...
I agree that Mulcair is too far to the Right for my progressive tastes, but, whattaya gonna do? It's not like there is an alternative, and if the bulk of the country is stupid enough to think that all Justin needs is a toga and some sandals to go with his hair and he'll be the saviour of the party...nuthin' I can do about that except shake my head and decide that there are too many Canadians who are just as dumb-ass as any tea bagger Yank...

Oh c'mon MoS that is beyond naive The NDP must be silent on Gaza and support neoliberal trade deals, Principles are for losers, pragmatism rules the day don't ya know.

At least that is what I've been told a lot lately. Truth be told though I detest this Liberal Lite bullshit

Alright, Kev, you win.

Like you I was really disheartened by the New Dems dropping so much of what they traditionally stood for to become the very thing they so long and so loudly reviled.
