In The News

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner? And, boy, are they pissed. And 45 minutes late.

Schreiber & Mulroney Inquiry Called: A Game of 17 Questions.

I don't feel like giving a detailed, or even half-assed, analysis now. Luckily, Kady O'Malley has a run down of both events.

Feel free to debate away in the comments section.

  • What a shit show. Far more of a Prime Ministerial sympathy date than an actual First Minister's meeting. Without actually having a proper process in place to meet with the Council of the Federation (if that is what they are still calling themselves) it is almost a guarantee that no actual work will get done other than a photo-op or two.

    Which begs the question, why are the Premiers going along with this? Would it not make more sense to refuse to show up unless it is a proper meeting with things in place like, oh for example, an agenda?

  • CG,

    Its hard to figure out what the point of this was. Perhaps Harper just wanted to meet these guys and do a little "alpha male" game playing.

    It seems like he got the job done.

    McGuinty and Charest posturing like a billion dollars shouldn't be approved by Parliament just seemed silly. I was glad that comment didn't have any legs.

  • Why did Harper have the meeting? Because of the polls and pressure - people have been talking for months about him not having a meeting with the premiers.

    You see, this so-called leader submits to polls and pressure - he's not a leader.

  • Did anyone expect the premiers to say 1B dollars was enough? Or that it was too generous? Of course not. Even if the sum was 10B$, they would have still complained. I don't know why this should be a surprise to anyone (or why it should be screamed in the headlines, for that matter).

    As for the "leader submits to the polls" comment, I believe every political party is guilty of this. But at the end of the day, Harper does end up looking like a leader, and Dion not as much. Just look at what the polls (ha!) are saying about this. When graded about leadership qualities, Dion usually ranked dead last, even behind Layton (although granted, such a poll hasn't been taken in the past few months now. Perhaps if another poll was taken today, the numbers would be different?).

  • NOT in the news..but dangerous to Canadians.

    Were you aware of precedent setting HRC attack on publisher of political cartoons, Ezra Levant?

    These kind people . . .

    are on the attack.

    We don*t See or hear a word from the state owned CBC, CTV, etc.

    Why are they all so quiet? ... Where Do they Stand?
    Exactly. . . Remember? . .

    I can't find any actual newspaper article as such but the content is to be read and understood by all of us.


    CBC, CTV, MSM will headline a guilty verdict if they can, but not a peep beforehand, lest they awaken the sleeping sheeple of Canada to this CRIME IN PROGRESS. = TG

  • Good News, but where is this in print?
    Music to my ears. .

    A year ago, against the desires and efforts of Surrendercrats (and some Surrendericans), President Bush changed tactics and decided to leverage this schism that had erupted between Iraqi Muslims and al-Qaeda.

    His Surge of troops gave Iraqis the opportunity they needed to throw off the jackboot of al-Qaeda. Since then al-Qaeda has been systematically swept from all major cities and his now hunkered down in enclaves in the countryside where they are being ‘mopped up’ with cold efficiency.

    It seems al-Qaeda has been so decimated and so reviled by the Iraqis (and US forces), they have become an *open book* due to all the intelligence pouring in. So much so Iraq is declaring al-Qaeda’s pending defeat as all but finished: ...-

    Thanks to Maz2 = TG
