My non-partisan hubby watched a few minutes of the debates, and couldn't believe how bad Iggy, Layton, and Duceppe were on the issues. He commented on how they were all attacking PM Harper, and that it made them look bad.
PM Harper did win this debate, Iggy lost. He was actually pathetic. Scripted answers to the questions, looked angry, hand on hip was arrogant, and he got confused near the end, stumbling over his answers.
Trust Jack to provide the zinger of the debate. This was worse than Dion's retake video, because "master debater" Iggy had no answer to Jack's question. He also stopped answering questions when he was asked about his voting record by the press, after the debate. He bolted back into the conference center. While PM Harper walked out the front door, Iggy was walking out the back.
PM Harper stayed calm under an assault from the 3 coalition members. As a matter of fact, the opposition gave him lots of air time because they were all attacking him. He got more response time than the 3 of them combined, and he was able to get out the Conservative message. He appeared to be the only intelligent person on the panel.
Soon, Canadians are going to get engaged, and the Conservative message about either a coalition or a stable Conservative majority will get some attention. I think that Canadians are not really scared about a Conservative majority anymore. They are also sick of having 4 elections in 7 years.
None of the biased media attempts to influence our vote have worked so far. They are getting so desperate that they are clearly showing their true lefty bias. Just like they fought against Ford for mayor of Toronto, they are now fighting against the Conservatives. It will bite them when Sun News comes on line. Thank you Shaw!
