Congrats on your second term, Barack Obama.
The Dalton McChicken government is so low in the polls, that apparently everyone is Mike Harris. I think it would be worse to be called the next Dalton McGuinty.
I love Sarah Palin. It’s too bad now the the election is long over we won’t see her again… But Wait!!! Here’s more!!!
Sarah Palin loves turkey (look @ the background)
Thank You Sarah Palin, no really.
Let me save you the time of watching 60 Minutes tonight. Now that Obama is president, what does he want to do?
Make sure that if you didn’t vote in the advance polls, that tomorrow you go out and vote. And this year, as I mentioned before I will not be voting Conservative for the first time in my life. I’m tired of being promised that my MP will deliver for me and comes back empty handed. I expect that from the liberals – thats what they do. But I demand better from the Conservatives. And I have not been impressed with the performance of Diane Finley.
How many jobs were created in Norfolk since Finley has been our MP? I mean good, quality jobs – not $8/hr WalMart jobs. How did that tobacco bailout do until only 4 weeks before an election call? How has she handled the most divisive issue in our area, the Caledonia Crisis? Has she taken the lead and made sure herself and her party has been at the forefront? Absolutely not.
Let me be clear — I’m not expecting Finley to have the magic answer to everything. But I want her to demonstrate leadership and execution on crucial issues affecting our area, not sit in the ministerial row waiting to stand for a vote when Stephen Harper says it’s okay.
So this election, I’ve decided to go with the maverick. The one who has promised to stand up for our area because he doesn’t have to tow a party line. The one who has been in our area addressing the black eye that is ruining our economy. The one who shows passion, leadership and integrity. I know how this man stands on an issue because he makes it clear. Love him or hate him, at least you know he will defend Haldimand-Norfolk. I ask you to give Gary McHale strong consideration when you go to the ballot tomorrow. Happy Thanksgiving.
I need to pay a writer for this site. Or, perhaps I need a piece of equipment to spontaneously blog for me while I’m thinking it out. That could be dangerous.
At any rate, I found last night’s french debate so tough to watch (even with the translators) that I have to say the winners were those who understand french more than english. Anyways, over at Janke’s Angry in the Great White North, one of the most overlooked parts of the debate was noticed. It was the “fluffball” question you always get in therapy sessions: Say something nice about the person to your left. While everyone else made niceties into cheap shots, Harper actually gave Layton genuine praise while keeping it in context. Now that is a leader. Read Janke for the rest.
I can’t wait for tonight, and it sucks I work til 9:30. Not only is there the English Debate, which I will miss most of, I will get to see the Veep Debate in the states….. How will Palin do without a script to follow?
For Those Who haven’t seen it. Letterman owning McCain.
Diane Finley “has better things to do” than attend the all candidates meeting in Dunnville on October 2nd. The Dunnville Chronicle has more.
Maybe someone can call up the ‘Finley Scarecrow‘ or perhaps post some “where is Diane Finley” signs in her absence. But seriously, do you just write off your electorate, because you have “something better to do”? I’m sorry, don’t you work for the people you are supposed to be meeting on October 2nd, Ms. Finley?
Canada is in election mode as of 10 am yesterday. *Yawn* Stephane Dion is a nerd, Jack Layton is a nut, so I’ll be voting Harper. At least he didn’t blunder any money yet.
