Larry Martin Seems To Be Afraid

Libluvin journalist, Larry Martin seems like he's afraid these days. First he comes out with a book  that portrays PM Harper as an iron fisted control freak who hates Liberals. He likes to try to make the Conservatives look bad at every turn by the way.
  Today in his column I sense real fear on his part.  Fear that Liberals are losing their grip and influence on the provincial scene and it that will spill over to the federal scene. Oh, dear! He believes the troubles of the Liberal governments in BC, Ontario, and Quebec is a reason why Iffy can't get any traction despite the phony plaid shirts, the phony poses with Tim Horton's cups on the Magical Liberal Express tour.  It might have a bit of an influence but I think Ignatieff and his team do enough damage to themselves without the help of the provincial cousins.
The caving of the three Liberal fortresses may have consequences beyond their jurisdictions. Tidings at the provincial level don’t often reverberate with much impact at the federal level. But when the Liberal brand name takes a hit in three great domains in the same time frame, it surely can’t help. It may be among the reasons why Michael Ignatieff is not getting much liftoff despite all his hard work through the summer.
Martin goes on to lament the troubles of the three Premiers who he calls successful. Successful? Huh? 
 Larry is clearly afraid that the public is starting to wake up and see the light, that the Liberal socialist agenda has failed. Poor Larry!
Federal Liberals can’t quantify how much they’re being hurt by the plight of their provincial leaders. They say Quebec is where it’s being felt most. And they don’t like the luckless irony of it all. Three of the most successful Liberal premiers to come along in decades are detrimental to their federal hopes.

Larry, accept it. Change is a comin'.  I sense the public is starting to look for change at all levels, more fiscal  accountability,  smaller government, less government spending, lower taxes, more individual freedom, in other words, more conservatism.

  1. although they spin it as "tea party north" and many lessor slurs, the angst being felt by us long suffering taxpayers is beginning to coalesce into a real political force - first to be put to the sword - all the Lieberal spinners and CBC - Larry is in trouble here

  2. Martin made a very blatant lie in his article which I just read, that the three premiers had successful records?? I think Martin is now certifiable. (real conservative)

  3. Our dollar and economy are not listening to Larry either.

    Liberals are very unhappy as the gravy train is no longer under their control.

    I also included a post with the same article.

    Who would play Curly or Moe?

  4. Liberals are very unhappy as the gravy train is no longer under their control.

    Ain't that the truth! That's what makes them crazy. They have that need to back on that gravy train so they'll try any tactic to get there. They act like a drug addicts needing their fix.

  5. "It may be among the reasons why Michael Ignatieff is not getting much liftoff despite all his hard work through the summer."

    Riding a bus and wearing plaid shirts sure is hard work to a lefty.

  6. His analysis of BC politics shows how Toronto-centric his view is and how out of touch he is with anything outside his little world.

    The BC 'Liberals' are Conservatives in everything but name. There is no viable alternative to right in this province.

    Campbell is in trouble, but people are starting to realize that although they didn't like the way he implemented the HST, it's a better system and is necessary if the province is to be competitive with Ontario et al.

  7. The name Jean Chretien scares the media and Larry.

    The media in my opinion deserve what they get; they brought this on themselves but are looking elswhere to cast their blame on; surely it can't be the liberals nor the NDP not the Bloc since those two have signed contract on the Coalition agreement, so which party is left-the conservatives.

  8. I hate Liberals too! hey Larry write a book about me you feather weight!

  9. For any masochists out there, Larry was interviewed by Bill Good of CKNW, on Monday @ 11:00 AM. link

    Best exchange is from one of the callers (@ 36 mins) who tore into Bill for being a partisan lefty, which Bill objected to. Later, Bill described Larry's book as "outstanding". And Larry referred to the "cold war era" jets that we are buying. Yep, no bias there.


This is my home. I hope you respect it. I will not tolerate profanity or anything that is not suitable for family consumption.
