Stephen Harper Speaks Proudly Of His Manipulation Scheme

Watching this recently added videos on youtube, on why he delayed the release of his platform, reminds me of a bad movie.

Is he so out of things and policies to talk about that he have to micromanage and release his platform bit by bit just so he can maintain people’s attention? It reminds me of a bad movie lacking in substance but just dragging on and on to fill the time. Harper, not really having done much in this campaign nor does he have anything new to offer have to play that bad movie trick. I think it’s time for us to change the channel.

Watching Dion speeches or one of the other opposition leaders, you can gain more insight to what their plans are. Meanwhile, Harper talks so proudly about “deliberately being vague” on some items so that they would still have something to talk about the rest of the week. It’s pathetic.



  1. I voted for harper. last time, but not this. I am not much of a politics person, but I do not want more war and more jails. Some one has got to fix the money problems. But not with war and jails.

  2. He’s so perversely proud of his communications strategy, as if he’s talking over all our heads directly to Karl Rove. Not even the courtesy to answer an excellent question (why didn’t he announce the platform prior to the closing of advance polls). He doesn’t give a rat’s ass about democracy or the Canadian public. That will be his downfall, and hopefully he and the Cons can manage to

    Tank By Tuesday!!

    (They don’t realise it, but that appears to be their new campaign slogan for the final week).

  3. only days to go and the Conservatives finally have a platform. I never thought they’d get around to having a reason for existing.

    Top 10 Stephen Harper election promises.

    7. Steve promises to work the words, “Kiss me, I’m Canadian” into our national anthems’ lyrics.

    6. Sell Quebec to the Japanese for billions by telling them its Euro-Disney. (Ooops, sorry. That’s one of Steve’s Top 10 ways to sell out Canada).

    Number 5. Steve promises not to start his next re-election bid at least until the end of the month and, he also promises to give up his Bob Barker haircut.

    4. Nothing for the kids… er¼ make that free beaver rides for the kids!

    3. Longer hockey games. Introduce an extra 4th period of hockey.

    2. Steve promises never to call an election he promised he wouldn’t call and then introduce his platform at the last minute after the opposition leaders reminded during the debate that he should have one if he wants to be like a real Prime Minister. Naw, forget that. That’s just incredibly stupid.

    …and finally, the number one Stephen Harper Conservative Party platform plank…

    1. Steve will create a new cabinet post, Minister of Tim Horton’s

    Hmmm… maybe I should have added free mechanical bull rides at Big Buck’s Country Cow Palace and Buckaroo Burger Bar for everyone who votes Conservative?
    Steven Harper, doing for Canada what George Bush did for America.
