PM Useful Idiot will face reality check in 2016

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s idealism is going to lose the battle with reality this year. The sunny ways of 2015 will fade into the grey skies of 2016.

The Liberal leader campaigned on building relationships, being optimistic and displaying good intentions. It was Barack Obama’s 2008 “hope and change” campaign all over again.

Canadians took Trudeau up on his offer, having tired of ten years of Stephen Harper’s perceived meanness. They gave Trudeau and his team a majority to transcend the way politics was being done.

    I don’t expect Justin to crash-land on anything. He’s got some some smart people around (who won him the election, and) who will stand by to weasel him out of any trouble. Trudeau is a political mannequin with a poor grasp of the world, but like Reagan and George W. will likely do what is expected from an ornamental executive.

    • His advisers have convinced him that like Wynne has done in Ontario it is good policy to destroy the economy, except he’ll get to do it on a national scale, that will not go over well.

      Nor will the replication of the Wynne/Public Service Union kleptocracy at the federal level.

      Normally I don’t make economic predictions, but this time with Gerald Butts having the ear of Prime Minister Justin, I think in 12 to 24 months we will have to admit we will be in a severe recession nationally that will go on and on.

    • Millie_Woods

      Justin is not surrounded by smart people, he’s surrounded by people like you.

  • Shebel

    Justin has 4 years to transform Canada into his vision of an Islamic wasteland .

    All these promises sounded good on the campaign trail, especially with an uninformed electorate blindly following each “headline” news stories crucifying Harper. Well reality has set in and the public is having time to think about it and see that Trudeau’s promises were all dreams. Now will the media report honestly when comparing the Liberal promise versus reality and actions or will we see more idolization of PETII?

    • andycanuck

      No, they won’t. They’re already covering for the 25,000 by 2016 lie, pretending that he only just missed it. And none of them are calling him (or themselves) out for campaigning on a drowned kid’s body. (F#ck his mother and brother. No one cares about them.)

      Looking through Dean’s feed around Dec30-Jan1 has alot more of these.

    I’m looking forward to his facial expressions as he tries to explain away the increasing ludicrousness of his election promises. He either thinks that Canadians are stupid, his people think that Canadians are stupid or he’s so stupid he doesn’t realise that he’s just the shill for the Liberal Party. He has never had to struggle for anything in his life. That will make his public humiliation even more delicious as he slowly falls on his own sword. It will be all in the facial expressions.

    • The media will cover for him.

      • Surele Surele

        but one can dream, can’t one?

  • Tokenn

    He got elected…that’s all that matters, Canadian minds have such a short attention span nowadays that they will never be able to sort out the lies and promises from the reality. In four years PM Mascot’s handlers will have the situation well, er, in hand. No one will be able to get past his pretty face, pretty family and expressions of good intentions.

    I really wish “conservative” commentators would write like real conservatives. JT is NOT an idealist — he is a power-hungry shmuck who has sold his soul to not one but two devils for the dubious privilege of being their front guy for their own agendas.

    It never fails to amaze me how quickly Canada has descended into a communist mind-set (oops, sorry, should have said “socialist” — but same thing, isn’t it?). And I’m also amazed how many people still yearn for the never-never Camelot-land of the Kennedys and think that the Trudeaus fit the bill. (Excuse me while I hork up a furball just thinking about it). Pierre was a self-admitted communist who tried like hell to change the Canadian constitution by a series of nefarious means and plunging the country into debt for decades. While the current hagiography surrounding this family, paints Maggie the mother as some sort of Virgin Mary for the 21st century, the footprint she left behind and which the spin doctors failed to clean up, is proof positive of anything but. For those too young to remember — check Google Images for the crotch shots and check the used book stores for “Beyond Reason” for all the scummy details in her own words.

    If there ever was a time for civil disobedience/rebellion it is NOW!! I have been (?politiely) suggesting this for months. Sheeples, I beg of you, if you want to salvage anything, even one tiny little shred of this great country, it is time to storm the barricades and throw the bums out. We do not have the luxury of time. And those who think there will be another election are smoking some pretty good weed. What the f*** do you think this no-discussion electoral “reform” is all about?

    • They are a horrid family and Junior is an idiot.

      I can’t genuinely hate him simply because he is so obviously stupid and easily manipulated.

      • Reader
        and if that isn’t good enough, with how Justin was charging for speaking engagements when he was first an MPP on top of his salary

      • Waffle

        I should have also stated that he is an arrogant, self-entitled stupid shmuck, stuffed to the eyeballs with an inflated sense of his own importance.

        I disagree that he is “easily manipulated” — he is all too willing. I guess nobody reads Faust anymore. He doesn’t give an FF who he hurts or how many lives he destroys. He has made his choice and is forcing the rest of us to live with the consequences.

    As I have stated on many channels, the elites get their leaders ready years prior to them taking office. People actually believe leaders have power. They are like puppets on strings.

    Which is why to me George W. Bush’s quote of dictatorship would be a much better system is probably better.

    At least you would have people from each community delegating and speaking for your community.

    Democracy only leads to fascism as we have seen across the West with living standards dropping. Maybe having more strategic decision-making and division is the way to go. Which is why I deeply support direct democracy on the economy to find out where Canadians want our economy and free trade to be positioned. We also need democracy on powers of the PM and on Senate and democratic reform issues. By having this, we can truly have a people-centric government.

    The way it is now the elites have too much control and we only have democracy once every 4 years with no checks and balances. This transcends ideology.

    Having state funded elections of parties would make parliament yes a pizza parliament and I hope in that money would be removed. Ideology is passe nowadays and we need to be more open-minded and let true ideas lead the day.

    The collapse of the housing bubble will wash away the Liberals.

    • Billy Bob Thornton

      In the next one to two years I feel there will be a worldwide recession. Europe and the US cannot keep the Ponzi scheme lasting forever. They got in at the worst possible time. You could say any party never time will win based on that. They will be blamed because we now exist in a globalized economy. That is more true than anything. In the past, economies could have withstood external jitters, but everything can be felt by external forces nowadays.

        The reserves of the CMHC are a fraction of what they will need to cover even five percent of mortgages defaulting.
        Also, mortgage insurance is for the banks not the borrower.
        If you default because you get sick or lose your job the bank gets made whole not you.
        The amount of mortgages insured are worth roughly the same as the national debt.

      But if the sodies and iranis duke it out – the price of oil may sky rocket (the sodies are keeping it low by not producing much). Hard to say what this will do.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        I have read that there is such a surplus of oil that tankers are being used as storage on the high seas.

      One can hope, right? You have to wonder if the Liberals are washed away will the fools that voted him in scratch their heads, wondering if the legalizing of pot is still in effect? Remains to be seen.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Anyone who voted for the Liberals based on the legalization of pot was a person voting against their own self interest.
        Black market pot is cheaper, of higher quality and more accessible than any government could provide.

    Canadian will tire of him quickly.

    Missing the refugee target thing won’t matter in the long run, most of the feel-goodie white guilt types that liked that pledge only cared about the intention, not the results. He picked the highest number fastest, therefore he showed them he cared the most. The only ones worried about the numbers are the ones in the affected minority groups.
    The electoral reform issue might prove to be more interesting, really it depends on who can get out and define the issue first. There are a lot of hardcore reformists pushing for this change to keep the Conservatives out of power forever, but I don’t think the entire media is on board with this one. Whoever manages to shape this issue in the publics collective mind first will win the day on this one. Frankly it shouldn’t even be a 50% +1 referendum, but something like a 2/3 majority to change something that fundamental. I would almost suggest the right play the “tyranny of the majority” card to push for the higher margin to pass it.
