Trudeaumania not worth the price #elxn42

It looks like I spoke too soon when I wrote a week ago that Canadians would recognize a job well done and re-elect Stephen Harper to another term in office.

A series of miscalculations and missteps by the Conservatives have helped pave the way for Justin’s Trudeau’s popularity surge.

The Liberals are peaking at exactly the right time to win the election.

But before we succumb to Trudeaumania, there are four important numbers voters should keep in mind Monday.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    Trudeaumania, eh?
    I can’t find any good and recent poll numbers.

    • Maurixio Garciasanchez

      Well if you live on the slams in Detroit you need to come out and update your info of what’s going on in the world now 🙂

      • David

        Your idiocy knows no bounds.

        • Waffle

          He likes hearing himself talk. I’m starting to enjoy his drivel — makes me laugh. You have to admit, he’s the master of the non sequitur. Besides, we really should be nice to the mentally challenged.

          • Rosenmops

            Does that mean we have to be nice to Turd-doh if he becomes pm?

          • Minicapt

            We can rename him “Maurixio”.


          • Mickey Oberman

            Not at all.
            Then he would become a fair (okay dark haired) target for those who voted for him and find none of his promises have come to be.

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Ricky from Trailer Park Boys is the master of the non sequitur.


      • Drunk_by_Noon

        Are you trolling me Maurixio?

  • kkruger71

    “there are four important numbers voters should keep in mind Monday.”
    People who would vote for Trudeau don’t pay attention to numbers.

  • David

    It aint over till the fat lady sings.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Are you telling me that the Shiny Man Boy has a chance?

    • V10_Rob

      Considering the stellar job pollsters have done in the last few provincial and federal elections, I’m waiting for the actual results.

      I am concerned about the media’s ‘Justin is winning’ narrative creating a bandwagon effect, mind you. But I’m resigned to the fact that we are outnumbered by the stupid and credulous, who will never get it until they feel the pain of their own policies in action (and even then many will not make the connection).

      “I told you so” is going to be a familiar phrase in years to come, I think.

  • Cat-astrophe

    Trudeau will be our next Prime Minster. Not because I do not want him to be, but because the Media wants him to.

    • Exile1981

      Even if the conservativrs end up with a minority gov’t we will see the ndp and libs and greens forming a coalition to be the next gov’t. Mostly because at this point mulcair knows forming a coalition with the man child is his only hope of getting any power.

      • Waffle

        He’ll get slaughtered in Quebec.

      • Cat-astrophe

        I’ve felt right from Mulcair the “Dual C” and former Liberal becoming leader of the NDP, they will someday merge. Whichever gets the minority poll position (Justin wont lose this election I still maintain) will begin overtures to the other to join teams.

    • Waffle

      But, but, but — what about the Globe endorsement? Slime balls — now at the 11th hour they have the chutzpah to say “just kidding”.

      Anyway, I’m sticking with my prediction — a Con minority propped up by a new and improved Bloc. Alberta will go blue — can’t see them going any other way, so will Sask. Ontario is the major “x” factor, but hopefully enough people detest Wynne at this stage of the game, they’ll either go orange or blue.

      • H

        It will be very interesting to see how Alberta votes: was the Notley result an aberration, or is the Left in the process of carving out a beachhead there, particularly in progressive Edmonton and, to a lesser extent, Calgary?

        • Cat-astrophe

          I hope a lot of the NDP voters shipped out when the price of oil dropped. We had an out migration recently. Just want to see the vote trend back towards blue, so I do not have to listen how we are moving towards the red star.

      • Mickey Oberman

        We will soon see if there is enough left of your reasonable sounding predictions on which to pour real maple syrup.

    • He won’t.

      Have faith.

      • Mickey Oberman

        Have Faith, Hope and Charity if it will keep the uncombed one out of parliament.

        • One must also keep in mind how desperate the popular press is in getting Trudeau in and how they will lie to do it.

  • ontario john

    The part time drama teacher is taking advice on paranoia from Wynne, by going back to Paul Martin’s old tactics. Yes, Trudeau today is warning that evil Harper has dirty tricks up his sleeve during the last couple of days before the election. Shades of Paul Martin’s “soldiers in the streets”.

    • Clausewitz

      Funny, every tory sign in our townhouse complex was vandalized last night. Every NDP sign in our complex was also vandalized. All of the Liberal signs untouched. Are these brain dead buffoons to stupid to think that we might not be able to figure this out on our own?

  • Rosenmops

    If this moron becomes pm I’m going to stop watching Canadian news as much as possible. And if any more of my relatives send out Facebook messages about how evil Harper is I’m going to block them. Even my own kids , I swear. I can’t take it any more.

    • Clausewitz

      My friends list has been pruned down nicely from acquaintances who have swallowed the Kool Aid. I was meaning to do it during the summer but was busy. Thanks folks for inspiring me to simplify my life.

      • Shebel

        My in-laws on both my daughters sides – hate me.
        All it good.
        With any luck —I’ll never have to see or communicate with them Ever again.
        I have definitely been blessed.

        • Clausewitz

          Just remember to seat them at the Kiddy table next family affair. That way they’ll be comfortable with the level of discussion,

    • Censored_EG

      Indeed. It will be beyond unbearable on the CBC, CTV, etc. Blogs only after Monday evening. I feel your pain. *sigh*

      • G

        Media people love to left wing because it allows them to be morally superior with no effort.

        Just get someone ELSE to do it. Tax people & let the government take care of the problem. If someone disagrees with you don’t bother going to all the effort of explaining why your choices are superior just scream “BIGOT” or ridicule him/her.

        If they were in any way familiar with effort & hard work they wouldn’t be in the media in the first place. News people get cheap fame by shouting “Hey everyone, look at what they did!”. Regular fame requires actually being good at something, science, sports business… you know? Actual achievements.

        I stopped bothering with the newspapers and TV news long ago. You always knew exactly how stories were going to be presented.

        Media people are lowlife shits.

  • Shebel

    I don’t love everyone .
    I don’t respect every ones’ Religion .
    I don’t suffer from a guilt trip because of my skin colour.
    I don’t feel like working so YOU don’t have to.
    I don’t want to baby sit your kids.
    I don’t have the ability to control the climate.

    Neither does Justin.

    Sue me !

  • Barbara

    Picture this……Putin and Trudeau having a conversation on the world stage. So many levels scare me.

    • Shebel

      Putin takes his shirt off.
      Justin takes his pants off.

    • David Murrell

      Well, Putin has conversed with Obama on the world stage. I call it child abuse. And Putin talking with Trudeau will be more child abuse.
