Harper Hater Francis Russel Disappointed in Iffy

In her latest column Harper hater far left columnist, Francis Russell laments in her disappointment that Mr. Iffy and the Libs can't do any better.

Well, boo, hoo, hoo!
The problem with Ignatieff
"The problem is Ignatieff is not an easy sell to New Democrats and progressives. He's not only burdened with the business-Liberal image that felled John Turner and Paul Martin, he's also aristocratic and aloof. Ignatieff looks and sounds superior and condescending. And the odour lingers from his writings on torture."
Ekos Research's Paul Adams told CBC Radio's The Current Monday that the Liberals have "conspicuously failed" to capture public anger over the Conservatives' anti-democratic prorogation of Parliament and channel it into creative ideas and policies the party could then take back to Canadians. "Are they just waiting for the Conservatives to fall of their own weight, because if they are, they may be mistaken," Adams warned.

Two national columnists have weighed in on Ignatieff's woes. Sun Media's Michael Den Tandt wrote a wry article advising the Liberal leader to "stop talking about yourself" and, in almost every paragraph, to "get a plan."

At the Globe and Mail, Jeffrey Simpson believes the Liberals' "pervasive emotion" is "fear: fear of providing the Conservative attack machine with a target, fear of saying anything controversial lest voters be offended, fear of the polls, fear of negative media."

Fear, he continues, means "courage is banished, convictions are buried and politicians will talk and not say much."

Nor will they win."

Even with all the frenzy that the LibLuvin Harper Hater Lame Stream Media stirred up over perogygate and all the other gates, they still can't see their team winning anytime soon so they are unhappy with their leader. Can't let those evil Conservatives actually work to do some good things for Canadians and bring back pride in our country again, now can they? But oh, what to do?

Will Mr. Iffy be pushed out and Bob Rae be installed as the new saviour of the Libs? Will the coalition of losers rear it's ugly head once more? They need to do something to get rid of the evil PM Stephen Harper Conservative government and save the country after all. They need to be back in their rightful place again, at the public trough, stealing money from hard working taxpayers, being nice to criminals and terrorists etc.,right? Then all will be well with the world.

Feminazis Upset Over Ad They Haven't Seen

Some feminazi groups are taking offense to a Superbowl ad they have not seen yet. It's a pro-life ad produced by Focus On The Family set to air during the Superbowl game.

"College football phenom Tim Tebow is about to become one of the biggest stars of Super Bowl XLIV — and he's not even playing in the game.

Tebow, the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback for the University of Florida, and his mother Pam will appear in a pro-life commercial that tells the story of his risky birth 22 years ago -- an ad that critics suggest could lead to anti-abortion violence, even though none of them have seen it.

The 30-second spot, paid for by the conservative Christian group Focus on the Family, is expected to recount the story of Pam Tebow's turbulent pregnancy in 1987:" (h/t) Foxnews

Bill O'Reilly confronts one of those femanazis on his show last night.

Perogy Outrage in Quebec

You would think out of all Canadians who would be the most outraged over the perogy issue it would be Quebecers. They out of all Canadians are the least endearing to PM Harper and the Conservatives. You would think with all the media and the opposition crying that this is the worst thing that has ever happened in our country it would be resonating in La' Belle' Province.

You can tell the rate of outrage for instance, the rallies held on the weekend, in Montreal according to Hubert Bauch from the Montreal Gazette, a measely 3oo outraged Quebecers showed up.

"MONTREAL – A noontime rally to protest the recent prorogation of Parliament drew a vocal but peaceful crowd of about 300 Saturday.

The protesters chanted slogans denouncing Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s move just before New Year’s to shut down Parliament until the beginning of March as they marched from Émilie Gamelin Park to Phillips Square where they gathered before the statue of King Edward VII to cheer protest organizers and opposition politicians in attendance who decried the prorogation as undemocratic.

The demonstration was one of some 60 such events scheduled across the country and was motivated by an Internet campaign that has attracted more than 200,000 supporters."

Further proof it was a yawner for Quebecers from Norman Spector, a new CROP poll.

"If you want to understand why the Bloc has been lukewarm to Mr. Ignatieff’s proposal in regard to the power to prorogue—and why Prime Minister Harper doesn’t appear to be having any anxiety attacks either, a new poll conducted from January 14 to 24 by CROP --one of the province’s leading pollsters—would be a good place to start.

Satisfaction with the Conservative government since the last poll in October has declined by one point, from 37% to 36%...the dissatisfied have increased by 1%, from 58 to 59%....notwithstanding the Liberal campaign against prorogation….

On the ballot question, the news is no better for the Liberals—the Ignatieff effect has worn off… the Liberals are at 24%...which is what they obtained under Stéphane Dion in the last election…the Conservatives are 21%, which is where they have stood since September 2009.

Michael Ignatieff is seen as the best PM by 20% of Quebeckers, the same as in October. His slide began in April 2009, when he was seen as best PM by 45% of Quebeckers. Stephen Harper is also treading water at around 24%, which is where he was in September 2009. Jack Layton is at 28%.

On the ballot question, the Bloc is down 3 points to 34%, which is where it stood last September and 4 points less than its result in the 2008 election. The NDP is up 5 points, from 12% to 17%

Among francophones, the Bloc is at 40%, the Conservatives at 20% and the Liberals are at 19%. The regional break-down is important: the Conservatives are at 15% in Montréal but at 33% in the Québec region, where they won their seats in the last election and where the Bloc now stands at 24% and the Liberals are at 22%.

In Montréal, the Bloc and the Grits are neck-and-neck—32 to 30%. In the rest of Québec, the Bloc is at 39%, the Conservatives are at 25% and the Liberals are at 16%'"
