Liberals are still in shock, they are talking about the "scary, hidden" agenda of the Conservatives. "Just watch", they say. PM Harper is going to unleash the "dark side" of the Conservatives, and we are all doomed. Seriously, these are educated people, some of them lawyers (not surprised there), and this is what I heard from them. Do they understand how desperate they sound?
I also heard, a swear word out here in Alberta....Trudeau! The Liberals are already talking about Trudeau as their saviour. Do they not get it? They refuse to blame their own party for their failure and they are still looking for that leader that will bring them back to glory, and the public trough. I tried to tell them that they needed to rebuild from the ground up, and they just looked at me with blank expressions. They only talk to themselves, that is why they lost this election. The media called PM Harper the one who was in a bubble, but the truth is that the media and Liberals are the ones who do not understand what Canadians want. Their bubble burst, and we can see pieces trying to crawl back together, but no magic ward/leader is going to put humpy lumpy Liberals back again.
The NDP supporters are talking about being the "government in waiting". No mention of the kindergarten squad that is causing them problems already. They have no problem with Layton hiding his newly elected MP's in some bunker for the next four years, but Harper is too bossy and won't talk to the media? HA!
The Conservatives are talking about lower taxes, smaller government and what PM Harper can accomplish now that he has a majority. They are positive, happy with the election results and wanting Parliament back as soon as possible. The NDP do not want Parliament to reconvene until 4 years from now.
Congratulations to the Conservative party, and especially PM Harper for a well run election campaign. Congrats to my MP, James Rajotte, I am hoping that he will be appointed as a Minister, he deserves it. He gets votes from all parties, and won his riding with over 60% support. Please get back to work and get rid of the long gun registry and make the CWB voluntary.
