Globe’s Martin says Harper and Trudeau had same experience


You really wonder if the Globe and Mail’s Lawrence Martin actually believes this crap about Justin Trudeau being equal to Stephen Harper in terms of readiness for becoming prime minister:

For a course in political immersion, it’s hard to beat. Years of foreign leaders and premiers and princes and kings traipsing through your living room. Heated debates at your dining room table. Daily life with Papa PM during the fight for the country in the 1980 referendum. Constitutional negotiations with the premiers just down the stairs from your bedroom. Foreign trips to broaden the perspective. Then, all the counsel and tutoring in his father’s post-prime-ministerial years. (see here)

Or is Martin just delusional in thinking anyone is buying his BS?

Also: See earlier post where Martin admitted agreeing to write a fawning column to promote Bank of Canada’s Mark Carney for leader of the Liberal Party here

    This is pure, unadulterated horse manure from Martin but isn’t that what we’ve come to expect from this Liberal journalist, author or whatever he calls himself,

    One would have to be on another planet or blocked off to compare Stephen Harper to Justin Trudeau as being ready to take the helm as leader of this country.

    Trudeau can’t even agree to debate one on one with Spaceman Garneau, who rightly said if he can’t debate him he’ll have trouble doing so with Stephen Harper. We’re in for a real circus as the Liberal “leadership” unfolds.

    I wonder if you believes that someone who is a son or daughter of a journalist can step into his shoes.

    Foreign trips to broaden the perspective would include the embarrassing crusade for peace in 1984. Trudeau Sr, wanted his sons to see the soviet union as a working model. Five years later the whole system collapsed.
    Trudeau was spectacularly wrong about the staying power of communism just as he was wrong about the earlier threat from nazism. Since he was dead wrong about the two most corrosive isms of his generation, just why would his tutoring be so valuable?

      Agreed… I’ve never understand the constant undeserved praise of Trudeau 1st. His record on economics, social justice, and preservation of the Dominion is dismal at best. Yet, inexplicably Trudeau No.1 is still championed as some kind of saviour. It’s like some kind of collectivist amnesia, or a national brainwashing. Trudeau No.2 is about as deserving to be PM as Ben Mulroney. Crazy Larry should ease up on the vodka and crazy pills.

    What Martin said.
    Absolutely the best Sir.
    You have nailed Junior and Pirouetting Pierre, a copy of a copy of a fake leader.
    With his disdain for ordinary Canadians and his embrace of two of the monsters of the twentieth century Pierre was an embarrassment to humanity in general and Canadians in particular. JMO
    Cheers Bubba
