SCARY Indeed

Question to the Conservative Blogosphere

If Conservatives are touting their policy and their vision and their “near flawless” campaign, is the fact that more people are switching to the Liberals in the absence of their platform or any flashy campaign the indicator that Conservatives really ARE out of touch with Canadians?

It's Christmas, go home. The parties are not politiking and neither should you.

Wait for it, guy, wait for it. Let's see what happens on Jan 23rd. In the meantime you may wish to re-acqauint yourself with the real CPC platform, not the one that you allude to.

The story, the document links and the context is over at:

Substance takes a little bit of time to catch on. I'll wait. No hurry. In the meantime console yourself with "how well" everyone is, or is not, doing in the polls. They are meaningless because, up until Jan 2nd or 3rd, the general public is not engaged. Just folks like you and me.

Happy Holidays!

All I am saying is that this campaign has gone perfectly for the Tories and nothing has happened. Erik when has the Liberal Party failed to campaign or offer anything concrete to Canadians?

We will see January 23rd

What are you watching the CBC . . . the polls haven't moved, maybe you're standing in a hole . . . .
After the new year . . . Paul will tell Canadians how he saved Medicare by removing transfers to provinces for 10 years, how he helped steal tax dollars to finance this election, brag about how he has taxed the asses off you dumb Canucks and you loved it.
PM and Belinda are the ones with the SECRET AGENDA . . . sooo scarrey . . . soo Canadian . . .

Scary indeed, did you get a look at Klander? He really creeps me out. Can't imagine hangin' with John Duffy or Scott Reid either. What a party of dick-wads. And talk about out-of-touch with the voter. Read Scott Feschuck's blog to get a good sense how surreal it is to hang with the PM. "I want to say one word to you son and that's PLASTICS". Yeesh! What a generation gap.

No, it means that people don't make a voting decision based on one or two policies. People have been scared of Harper. The Cons have run a good campaign so far and they are beginning to get more comfortable with him. Most of the undecideds and the soft Libs will wait for the very end of the campaign to tell pollsters that they are ready to make a switch if the whole policy package makes them comfortable enough. If your people become over confident and stick with this do nothing approach you will have no idea what hit you on election day. Even the media is turning. I'm sure you can feel it. And if you can't the PMO sent out a memo through Delacourt the other day you should read.

All i said is the Liberals will not play dead after Christmas and if the flawless campaign stalled with no competition, what will happen when it faces very stiff competition?

I still believe its a fair question

Antonio,

The problem is your definition of "stalled". If you believe the only poll number that matters is the one that says Cons 30%, you are kidding yourself.

Listen this liberal party is plagued with one scadal after another. Just look who is in charge , these guys can't tell the difference between right and wrong. You have to change the people in charge but you also have to change the system . The first thing the conservatives will do is pass the ferderal accountabilty act, its a real plan to clean up government. IT'S TIME WE STAND UP FOR CANADA

When you’ve been in power for 12 long years, when your party has been named by a judicial investigation into corruption, when scandals continue to engulf your government. What message can you possible take to the people of Canada? On Jan 23 let’s do something positive, vote conservative.

Liberal denials of the severity of yet another criminal investigation into the activities of the Paul Martin government are unconvincing.

For two days, Liberal spin doctors (who we thought were on the public payroll and not campaigning this week) have been saying that the announcement of an RCMP investigation into the Income Trust Scandal is really just a big misunderstanding, suggesting the Mounties aren't really investigating anyone or anything.

Following is what Commissioner Giuliano Zaccardelli had to say in his letter confirming the investigation:

“We would like to advise you that a review of this matter has been completed. Based on the information obtained during the review, the RCMP will be commencing a criminal investigation.” (Letter to MP Judy Wasylycia-Leis, December 23, 2005)

This is an explicit statement that the criminal investigation is based on evidence already gathered.

The Liberals are also claiming Finance Minister Ralph Goodale is not part of the investigation. However, the RCMP’s own news release clearly states he is “associated” with the investigation.

Under the Liberals, gun, drug, and gang crime has increased and border, port, and airport security has been soft. A new government must toughen criminal justice, impose mandatory minimum sentences for serious crimes, and strengthen our border security.

The Conservative Party will stand up for:

Mandatory prison sentences for serious drug trafficking, weapons, and violent offences, and ending house arrests for violent, sexual, and other serious offences.
Ending the wasteful long-gun registry and using the savings to hire more front-line police officers.
Protecting women and children from sex offenders through a mandatory DNA data bank, raising the age of sexual consent from 14 to 16 years old, and ending all defence loopholes for child pornography.
Strengthening border port and airport security, consolidating security services under a new National Security Commissioner, and quickly deporting non-citizen criminals.

After 12 years of scandal and inaction, it’s time for a change. Stephen Harper and the Conservative team have a plan to tackle the real issues that matter to Canadians:

• Conservatives will help individuals, families and entrepreneurs get ahead by lowering taxes, rewarding hard work and making it easier to save.

• Conservatives will help our seniors preserve their hard won gains through fairer taxes, better service from bureaucrats and by opposing ‘death taxes’.

• Conservatives will improve the quality of life in communities by improving access to health care, offering choice in child care and tackling violent crime.

• Conservatives will fight waste, mismanagement and corruption in Ottawa by enacting and enforcing tough anti-corruption and accountability measures.

• Conservatives will stand up for Canada by defending our national interests in trade disputes, securing our borders and treating all provinces with respect.

Stand up for change. Stand up for your Canada. Join Stephen Harper and support Canada’s Conservative team.
