Harper: "They're all debuting to be Leader of the Opposition"

That zinger of a line came from Harper during the post-debate session with the press, at the two minute mark of the CTV video...
"I tried to have a bit of fun, but it's difficult when you've got a four on one. But one thing that does allows, and did allow tonight, was for me to put out our policies, and what we're doing as a Government. And I think we're the only ones that conveyed any sense to the public of what it is exactly we're doing and what we want to do.

I mean, the rest were all attacking, that's great, they're all debuting to be Leader of the Opposition... but it doesn't tell the public what they'd actually do."

    It was really only three against one since Hezb'Allah Hattie is just a Liberal in thrift store clothing.

    Right on, man. I was pretty discouraged at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that the debate showed everyone what the other "leaders" true colours were.

    First time I have actually understood what Dion was saying.I really liked his Scottish ? accent.

    The important aspect of this debate was to focus on Duceppe and Harper. The rest were just spewing their lefty clap trap for the 11 Montreal seats. Outside Montreal, it's pretty much a tie between Bloc and C's; the others are not even close. Of course the french and english MSM are trying to make this a horse race by portraying Harper as loosing ground because of the art cut and the juvenile crime laws and I would say worst case that the Conservatives have stalled but not regressed. Both the Bloc and C's are still statistically tied outside Montreal according to polls.
    What's important here to mention is that Duceppe's campaigning is concentrated in Quebec only. He has almost constant free reign to spread his attack without balanced rebuttal. The french MSM, ultra lefty, help Duceppe if it would mean keeping Harper from forming a majority. So watch the Harper machine open up full blast in the last days and concentrating on Quebec for the most part. Their current french tv ads are powerful and I am convinced more will come out with specific arts and crime law subject among other things. The recent ex Party Qcois minister Brassard damning and questioning of the Bloc needs to go into a negative french ad...It is to note that the average Canuck or Qcer is just starting to tune in unlike us year round/ minute to minute political junkies.

    Yes, 4 again'st 1 is brutal and some would say "tis is not fare" but if Dion, Layton, Duceppe and for some (Women who wear baggy dresses and rubber boots with 15 cats meowing around maybe?) even Lizzy May did well and many I read on CBC and other comment sections do attest, then the left split will be even worst in Quebec giving a formidable chance for the C's to slip in the middle and win seats that way. Chretien did it because of similar situation and formed majority governments with a minority of votes.

    The majority possibility for Harper has not vaporized yet folks. Watch Harper in his first language tonight. Duceppe is going to get it back big time. More than Dion.
    Dion and Layton will be more at each other for the official opposition.
    May will be there to pick moonbat crumbs off of Layton and yes some of Duceppe too. After 18 years of Bloc, the braintrust that still support them are batty enough to go Green.
