Frank starting to panic in Guelph... and losing votes in the process

The evidence continues to mount that the Guelph Liberal campaign knows they're in serious trouble. So much so, that Liberal candidate Frank Valeriote crashed a meeting at the local Mosque, uninvited, where Conservative candidate Gloria Kovach was to talk to the local Muslim community.

From reports I've heard from several sources now, many in the mosque were, quite frankly, offended at this act of desperation. However, out of respect for him, he too was given an opportunity speak... which he then disrespectfully used to angrily attack his opponent. Needless to say, many in attendance were less than impressed... so much so that they have indicated that they have switched their vote, and will now be supporting Conservative candidate Gloria Kovach!

In fact, in a display of absolute hypocrisy, he warned the congration that she was going to lie to them, and not to believe her. But he then proceeded to spout off nothing but... well, let's just call it "less than factual" information.

He even used the opportunity to distance himself from his own leader, Stephane Dion, by flip flopping on the Liberal position on the Afghan mission... by claiming that the Liberal Party did not in fact support the extension of the mission to 2011.

I'm sorry to have to break this to you, but that is incorrect, Mr. Valeriote.

Some noteable names who voted "YEA" on the motion to extend the Afghan mission until 2011:

Brison, Dhaliwal, Dion (now where do I know that name from?), Dosanjh, Goodale, Ignatieff, Jennings, McGuinty, Redman, Turner, Zed... and I could go on, but all those names sound like Liberals to me, Mr. Valeriote. Of course, he could mean that the former Guelph Liberal MP didn't vote to support the extension... because she was once again not in her seat in the House of Commons.

Of course, he also said that the Liberal Party did not support sending our troops to Afghanistan in the first place... a statement that is not even worthy of a response.

He also made several other, shall we say "interesting", statements to the Muslim community. He said that the Canadian Government, under the Conservatives, wasn't sending any aid to Afghanistan. He also made the statement that in Afghanistan, Canadian soldiers were, and I quote, "Killing lives and killing livelihoods". Interesting... I thought the only "livelihoods" we were "killing" was terrorism and the opium trade.

But the biggest question that needs to be asked is, why does Mr. Valeriote feel that he has to, amm, "mislead" the Muslim community, in their sacred place of worship, in order to get their vote?

The gloves have most certainly come of, and Liberal candidate Frank Valeriote is getting desperate folks. I'm guessing he's getting pretty worried.

And before any Liberals try to say that all of this is untrue... I have several eyewitness accounts, who have all told me the same thing.

    If a Conservative candidate had acted like this the CBC would have canceled all their scheduled programming for the next three days in order to cover it 24/7.

    Here in my neck of the woods, a few of the Liberal candidate's signs have sprouted a banner THINK LOCAL VOTE LOCAL. - Guess he is trying to dump the Liberal party and the leader also --- won't do him any good - people here know him and what they know of him is far from good -- he will problbly get less votes if people decided to vote based on best local candidate! 10 days to go and Liberals are jumping ship to try to save themselves -- should be interesting.

    The stench of defeat, brings out the desperate attempts the lies, the old hacks speeches made 2 elections ago throw the muck boy's we don't have anything else. no policy, no plan, we don't need no stinking meetings! ...Paul Martin comes to mind. This (liberal) gang I would not dignify them with the name party. In this internet age a lie told at the smallest village at whatever end of this huge country has been "blackberried to the other end before the meeting is over. Do I agree with everything S. Harper has done? Of course not. However we are better off with his "steady hand " in these troubled times. I'm voting for him.

    "Killing lives and killing livelihoods"

    If a conservative said that about our military, you would see hundreds hollering for resignations.

    "CC", please do everyone a favour, if your candidate has this as locked up as you think she does, and if Frank is failing as bad as you say he is, please, I beg of you, PLEASE!!!!!

    TAKE THE HIGH ROAD!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This negativity has got to stop.

    And, yes I know, I'm just as guilty-as-sin on that count. But that doesn't make it right.

    Politics as usual has got to come to an end.

    EVERYONE! Read the Guelph Mercury this Wednesday October 8th to read about "politics as usual". The same "politics-as-usual" that, I too, am guilty-as-sin of and has to stop!!!

    I agree with Mike. Wouldn't it be nice to see an entire campaign done without even mentioning the other parties and their policies. It almost feels like a game of Risk that has got out of hand.

    To me, negative campaigns are done out of fear. Realistically speaking, I think Dion, Layton and Duceppe speak negatively of Harper because they are scared. I see no reason for Harper to be scared, so just ignore their silly games and take the high road and show the world that you are a leader.
