Paul Martin and his Liberals seem to be sinking like a rock dropped into an unfathomable lake. And still, I’ve heard nothing from him or his, telling us why we should vote Liberal in the upcoming federal election.
I heard Martin congratulate Ontario Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty for his election victory and new budget.
But now that McGuinty’s new budget has revealed the Premier to be a liar, and has spilled over onto Paul Martin, guess what? Martin’s folk are blaming McGuinty for the federal Liberals descent into political hell in Ontario.
Martin sort of reminds me of US Senator John Kerry. First he supports McGuinty, and now he’s against him. Some leader!
Paul Martin has also come out swinging at the NDP (Canada’s Socialists) and the New Conservatives for their stand on national unity. The Conservatives are decentralizers. The NDP are just nuts.
However; unlike Martin’s Liberals, neither of the two Parties have enlisted Quebec Separatists as candidates.
The irony is rich.
It appears that the federal Liberals might very well lose the election for a host of reasons. The primary is their impending loss to the Separatists in Quebec.
Here’s the irony.
The Bloc Québécois, which is presently kicking the crap out of Martin’s Liberals, was created by the “former” Quebec Separatist, Jean Lapierre who Martin hand-picked to win his Liberals seats in the province of Quebec.
I guess it shows that no one likes a turncoat.
Paul Martin must wake up every day with a king sized headache wishing it was all over, since every day for him and his Party, the news only gets worse.
Meanwhile, Stephen Harper of the Conservative Party is looking more and more like the leader Canadians should have in Ottawa.
Paul Martin spent much of his adult lifetime planning and scheming to be Canada’s Prime Minister, and when the time has finally arrived, he has all but screwed it up.
Better he should screw-up his Liberal campaign, than further screw-up Canada.
Not having another Liberal government in Ottawa is the best thing Paul Martin can do for his country. For that I’ll be grateful.
