"Don't forget. Don't forget this."
How much credibility does a former speech writer for Brian Mulroney have?
You be the judge:
Today L. Ian MacDonald (L to his friends) wrote a piece for the National Post entitled the "New Tory Heartland" about how Harper is apparently going to capture a majority off the backs of Quebeckers. This is the second time in a week that L has written such a thesis.
In this week's iteration, L quotes the recent words of Stephen Harper that:
"I give you my word that as long as I'm prime minister, there will be no new taxes."
L ends his article by saying that these words of Harper's were "the first speech of the next campaign." Coming from a speech writer, that is quite the insight?
Perhaps L is a better speech writer than he is a student of history. Seems to me that Harper made a similar promise in the last election that he abruptly broke for reasons that have never been substantiated, unless 18 pages of blacked out documents meets your test of substantiation.
I believe the definition of insanity is believing a person who has blatantly lied to you in the past and expecting a different outcome. Seems to me Harper had this to say about "no new taxes" in the last election:
"When Ralph Goodale tried to tax Income Trusts ... don't forget, don't forget this ...they showed us where they stood. They showed us about their attitudes towards raiding seniors hard earned assets and a Conservative government will never allow either of these parties to get away with that"
When Stephen Harper says "I give you my word as Prime Minister", doesn't L know that Stephen Harper's word is totally worthless?
L'ian MacDonald is espousing insanity.
