Ontario's Hatred for Dalton McGuinty Drove The Federal Liberal Massacre

If the Federal Liberals are shaking their heads wondering how they could have suffered such a monumental defeat in this 2011 Federal Election (especially here in Ontario), they need look no further for the reason why than their Provincial cousins and Ontario Liberal Leader, Premier Dalton McGuinty.

With McGuinty's catastrophic failures as the Ontario Premier over his past 2 terms in office (see: List of Ontario Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty's Scandals with Details...), and his tax, spend and waste policy of disastrous mismanagement, Ontarians are severely fed-up, and are salivating at the mouth at their upcoming opportunity to completely obliterate McGuinty and his Provincial Liberals and send them packing in the October Ontario Provincial Election.

Canada's Harper Conservative Majority a Victory for Taxpayers!

Last night Canadians chose to support the Taxpayers in this 2011 Canadian Federal Election, voting Prime Minister Stephen Harper and the Conservative Party of Canada a Majority Government!

NDP Leader Jack "the John" Layton made a huge surge as the polls had predicted, bringing a scary new reality to Canadian Politics where the super-left welfare state supporters are seriously on the rise. Luckily the Conservatives came through with the Majority and will protect the Taxpayers and the Canadian economy for at least another 4 years.

Good for you Canada!

Has Premier Dalton McGuinty Been "Asleep At The Wheel" for 8 Years?

In what must be the absolute worst year for Ontario Liberal Premier, Dalton McGuinty, Premier "Deadbeat" Dad is doing everything he can to try and appear -again- like he actually cares about Ontarians, and he's out there fighting the good fight on our behalf.  He's hoping that Ontarians will conveniently forget that he's done absolutely nothing to help us over his entire 8 years as our Premier, except raise our taxes, fees, and pretty much the cost of everything we need in order to survive, and he's back to his old tricks going to the press and shamefully making statements and gestures that are intended to have Ontarians believe that he is still working in our best interest.

McGuinty's latest sad attempts to show that he's looking out for Ontarians involve the Canadian Federal Election. I still remember years back when McGuinty was riding on the mantra of a "$23 Billion gap" between what Ontarians give the Feds, and what we get in return (see Remarks By Dalton McGuinty, Premier Of Ontario On Meeting With The Prime Minister)... He impassioned Ontarians with the resonating cold facts that we are a crutch for this country, and yet we get minimal support back. He said it was time to fight for Ontario and to get our fair share, and he was the leader to make it happen. Yet, here we are, years later, still no better off than when we elected and reelected him... McGuinty's latest cries to the Feds are of the same tune, just with different lyrics. Back then it was the "$23 Billion gap", this year it's "40% of the Federal Government's money comes from Ontario" (see: Toronto Star: McGuinty demands energy fairness for Ontario from Ottawa). Again, same tune, just different lyrics...

So to me, I question what he's done to narrow this gap over his 8 years in office?  It's one thing to question it and raise it as an election issue, but it's another thing to actually follow through on your promises and do something about it.  Unfortunately with Dalton McGuinty, this is a common theme.  He barks about something that is unfair during the Election, but once he's in office, he does nothing about it.  Then here we are, years later at the next Election, and guess what, that topic comes right up yet again from McGuinty...

Federal Debate #1: Harper Impressed; Duceppe an Embarrassing Clown...

Last night's Canadian Federal Election Debate #1 was quite literally the "Stephen Harper Show", as he completely out-classed, out-smarted, and so easily manhandled his shamefully inferior opponents, that it was like watching NHL phenom Sidney Crosby take some time out to play ice hockey with the Tim Horton's Timbits kids -no offence, Timbits! (Sidney Crosby - Timbits Hockey Commercial [2009]).

Though some people may complain that the debate was an utter bore, I didn't find it boring at all. I actually quite enjoyed watching the various party leaders go toe-to-toe. It's so easy for politicians to spew their rhetoric to the press when their opponents aren't there to respond, but when they're placed next to each other with no handlers between them to whisper in their ears, this is when you really see the strength, knowledge and abilities of our leaders.

It was pretty obvious that Prime Minister Harper came out the winner in this debate, even though the various Liberal news organizations out there will try to avoid that topic entirely (you know who you are, you stars, you...). And in a surprising finish for 2nd place, it was NDP Leader Jack Layton, who at times attacked both Stephen Harper and Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff. And while Stephen Harper was easily able to defend himself against Layton's mostly nonsensical accusations, Ignatieff was often left stuttering, bumbling and pretty much speechless, apparently in shock at the supposed betrayal by Layton. Now that was entertainment!

But, the highlight of the night had to be Bloc Québécois Leader, Gilles Duceppe, who was almost comical in his irrelevance... He was like a sad French clown who tried so desperately to be taken seriously, but kept having cream pies thrown in his face and having his nose honked. I have to commend Stephen Harper for keeping a straight face every time Duceppe spoke, because it was like Duceppe was in his own world, completely ignoring the questions that were posed, and reading off questions and accusations from his prepared cue cards that had nothing to do with the topic at hand. A couple of times Harper just had no idea what the hell Duceppe was talking about, but still in the most cordial and diplomatic way, tried to respond. I'm sure that many viewers like me who watched this Duceppe train-wreck, couldn't help but cringe every time he spoke... What a disastrous embarrassment Duceppe is for the Bloc and for Quebeckers overall.

After this debate, I wonder how any self-respecting Québécois could vote for such a bumbling idiot, and I question how he can not be seen as the laughing stock of all of Quebec, especially the Bloc... If any Quebeckers watched last night's debate, you can be sure they're votes have switched from the Bloc to the NDP.
