On the eve of an election call, Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he’s anticipating a “very nasty” campaign from the opposition parties, in an exclusive interview with CTV News.
In an exclusive interview with Harper to be broadcast Sunday on CTV’s Question Period, he said he expects the opposition parties to try to demonize him.
“To be really honest, I anticipate a very nasty, kind of personal-attack campaign,” he told Lloyd Robertson, CTV’s chief news anchor and senior news editor, at Harrington Lake.
“That’s just what I’m anticipating; that’s what the opposition’s done in the past. I think that whether Canadians agree with what we’re doing or not, I don’t think they’re going to believe the kind of personal attacks and scare tactics that we’ve seen in the past.”
And here is the clean “campaigning” from the dip shit himself.
Less than 24 hours into the Oct. 14 federal election campaign, senior Conservatives came out swinging before dawn today at Liberal Leader Stéphane Dion, painting him as someone whose policies will devastate Canadian families and “make everything more expensive.”
At a 6 a.m. ET news conference — so the party can try to set the news agenda as early in the day as possible — high-profile Tories Jason Kenney and Lawrence Cannon attacked Mr. Dion for what they called his “triple threat” to Canadians.
The Conservatives say the Liberal Leader wants to raise the GST, claw back a $1,200 child-care benefit and impose a carbon tax.
Mr. Kenney said Mr. Dion’s “half-baked risky schemes” are devastating to families on their own. But, taken together, it’s “three strikes and you’re out.”
This is the reason why I hate, detest and loathe the uber conservatives. Hypocrite little shits.
Update : For more BS from Stephen Crapper.
Asked whether he saw his chief rival as a family man, he said: “I don’t know Stephane Dion all that well. I presume that he’s been married a long time, has children. I presume he’s a family man also.”
Dion has a wife and daughter.
“I Presume him to be a family man”???? That’s the best soft side you got, Stephen? You have got to be kidding me about this.
Why was it so difficult to say that “yes, despite our political differences, Stephen Dion is a family man”. This is the reason why conservatives are so full of bull shit. In an unguarded moment, with no script lying in front of him, the prime minister of Canada “presumes” his rival to be a family man.
Excuse me, I need to go an hurl.
