Frum Here to Obscurity

.....

As if I needed another reason to believe that Harper is the worst thing that has happened to this country, along comes David Frum to confirm it.

You see, David thinks that Harper is the best man to lead this country. Yes he does! What he offers in this article to back up his assertion, is Harper's ability to dupe. Seriously, he sees this as an asset.

He said Republicans can learn from Harper, who recognized policy sacrifices must be made and voters with different points of view must be satisfied in order to win an election.

In other words, screw your base, because after all where are they going to go? And, pretend for the rest of the country that you really care about what they think, because they might just believe you long enough to get elected.

Knowing Frum's background, it's not tough to understand that he thinks the best leader for a country is one that can lie well. But honest to gawd...he's saying that out loud people!

Yes I know he's attacking Limbaugh lately and isn't that cute? He's not really attacking the strategy, just the tactic. Sadly, those words are often interchanged, but there is a difference.

In the end, fooling most of the people, most of the time, is still where this guy's head is and if he wants to tout Harper as the role model, so be it. In fact, I hope his riff's get more attention up here because as his fans laud his ways, they fail to realise how exposed they leave Harper.

I frankly don't care at this point where the Republicans think they should be, because I think they will have a long time to think about that. If however they want to adopt Harper's ways, I say go for it! Harper will be long gone as they implement his supposed braniac ways.

Why would they listen to Frum? He was the adivsor on the Guiliani presidential campaign - how did that go?

Also, the double-standard. Frum has lived in the US for years and years, Bush's speechwriter, involved in the US politics, but with the right wing in Canada that's okay. But, Ignatieff was only in the US for 5 years and they call him an American.

I know Sandi, but don't try to figure it out. You'll go mad.

Wow. Could you possibly have twisted and misrepresented that quote any more blatantly?

Seriously...if you really believe anyone would be fooled by such an inept attempt at 'spin' as that one, I want some of what you're smoking. It's one thing to be a Liberal and cheer for the home team; it's quite another to be so childish and vindictive that you're willing to embarrass yourself in a vain attempt to score some cheap shots on the Prime Minister.
