Liberals Trudeau and Rae talk NDP coalition

Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau’s been musing with reporters about whether he’d ever form a coalition with the NDP, particularly if it were still led by Thomas Mulcair.

Bob Rae expanded on the coalition theme on TV this weekend, and like Trudeau, he didn’t seem to have ruled out the idea.

If the NDP and the Liberals could seize power through a coalition, do you really think they wouldn’t?

    I can’t believe I live in a country full of women who will vote for Justin. Should I just go jump off a cliff now and be done with it? Why draw out this torture any longer?

    • Don’t give up hope. Justin Trudeau may suffer a humiliating defeat on live TV and- if you’re gone- you may not see it.

      And we would need your vote.

      Let that feeling of hopelessness fester until it becomes rage… Then unleash it in the revolution that’s bound to come. 😉

      My wife was a Liberal when I married her.
      But, we had the same values.
      And over time I convinced her that she was really a conservative.
      I do that with many people I meet.
      Oh, you’re a socialist?
      So, what do you believe in then?
      Seven month abortions?
      Then you might be a conservative.

  • He likes it. He doesn’t like it. Now maybe he likes or doesn’t like it.

    Trudeau says something stupid every time he opens his mouth. It still baffles me that someone would think he is PM material.

    Bob Rae should just disappear.

    Reminds me of when the Nazis and Communists teamed up and took over Poland.

    • Those were good times!

        I’m glad I hadn’t taken a sip of my beer before I saw that.

    Interesting to see how the words, Prime Minister Mulcair trip off the tongues of Liberals. Most seats get the PM’s chair.

      It’s good that you mention that.
      I remember they were quite condescending to their junior partners the last time around.
      Even though they had Dead Duck Dion slotted into the Prime Minister’s Office for the interim.

    “If the NDP and the Liberals could seize power through a coalition, do you really think they wouldn’t?”.

    Good point, and we can’t rule it out. The Globe and Mail these days has been reduced to a martinet for all-things-Liberal. And the chatter there amongst its writers (e.g., Lawrence Martin) is that of merging the two parties.

    Can you imagine the hair pulling, pansy slapping fight between Tommy and Justy to see who gets to be boss.

    • favill

      I would pay hard-earned cash to watch a no-holds barred fight between Tommy and Justy (much like the boxing match between Justy and Patrick Brazeau except much nastier and meaner). That should be how they determine who gets to be the alpha dog…I’d actually have more respect for both of them if they resolved the leadership question in this manner. We can make it best out of three.

    nope…NOT getting MY VOTE! …. I find both parties even more treasonous than the Conservatives
