The Liberal Version of Going Rogue

Published by at 1:16 pm under canadian politics,politics

Stephane Dion’s wife vents her spleen.

The Liberal Party is falling apart, and will not recover. Like all liberal parties in Europe, it will become a weakling at the mercy of ephemeral coalitions. By refusing the historic coalition that would have placed it at the helm of the left, it will be punished by history.

Read all the gory details.

Politics is rough. Poor Stephane. Just when he thought he was out, they pulled him back in.

    Paul Martin treated Jean Chretien the same way that Jean Chretien treated John Turner.

    Revisionist historian, Dion’s wife Janine Krieber says

    “If the Toronto elites had been more in tune, humble and realist”

    What? if Stephane Dion had been more in tune, humble and realistic he would have won the election. He was none of those 3 words. Those were his biggest problems.

    “A party where work ethic and competence would be respected and where smiles would be real.” Dion may have worked hard and he may have been a competent minister. But as a national leader he was politically incompetent in the extreme. He committed political malpractice. He was the most incompetent Leader of the Liberal party in my memory, possibly in history.

    The smart, effective political spouse is supposed to balance out the areas in which the politician is weak, not to reinforce the weaknesses and increase the denial.

    When you live in an ideological echo chamber, it’s not hard to become deaf to political realities. Sad, really.
