She's Not Even The Premier Yet...

But she has already reversed her position on not having a Legislative session. Has she reversed her 107 million dollar give away to the teachers union? No way! From the looks of things she might even be worse than Steady Eddie.

I think Peter's Principle is at work here...she has been elevated to her position of incompetence. She is a lawyer, her present husband is a lawyer, and her ex-husband is a lawyer, can you say disaster for Alberta?

How much damage can she do to our economy in a year, before we have an election? We need to be vocal about anything she does that will harm our economy. Lawyers do not understand the economy or business. Any eco-friendly initiatives need to be examined and voted down if they harm our ability to succeed. Does she support the pipelines to Texas and BC? I have no clue because personally I couldn't care about this phony election dictated by Liberal and NDP voters. They stuck us with Stelmach last time and now we are stuck with a pinko.

Redford met last week with Alberta Teachers’ Association brass before announcing an almost-immediate $107 million boost to education funding.
Running a distant second to favourite Gary Mar, Redford closed the gap and eventually won the leadership early Sunday morning.
Whether the move to pacify the teachers resulted in many of them buying $5 Tory memberships to put her over the top may never be known.
But Alberta Wildrose Leader Danielle Smith says it’s another indication the Progressive Conservative Party in Alberta has lost its way.

Alberta is leading this country in economic development. Does this elitist understand Albertans? Does  she understand the oilsands development? Is she going to be listening to all her Liberal/NDP/union buddies and change the royalty structure? She is already pandering to the teachers union, so I am not too confident about the direction she will be leading Alberta.

The smart PC MLA's will abandon the drowning PC party and flock to the Wildrose, but maybe Wildrose would be smart to reject the soon to be unelected. Like the undead, they only hang around and create trouble.

REDford is already a failure by reversing her decision to not call the Legislature back and by pandering to the teachers union. A sad, bad start.

I've said it once, and I will say it again. It The Peter Principle. Not Peter's Principle. And then you go on a rant about funding education. HAHAHAHAHAHA

"I have no clue..." Finally, something we can agree on!

She campaigned on change and she has lived up to it, she has changed her mind. Wonder why she did that, did she read the blogs and the comments. We are in for a bad year or so. Is putting Horner in as deputy a change, considering he was deputy under Ed.
I bet a lot of her cabinet will be the same old that was there before.

Like the overpaid teachers always chant as they are getting ready to strike -" we are doing it for the kids you know". Where's King Ralph when you really need someone like him?

She said she wanted to get input from her caucus first, then why did she say no sitting first.
Did her caucus give her an earful, did some of them threaten to walk.
Waiting for her cabinet picks. So far, Horner has kept his job, who else will.
The Progressive Conservative Party in AB better change their rules re who can vote. That income from instant members is not worth it.

Are there any lawyers in Calgary who are NOT Liberal. I didn't think so.

Is it true that Morton did not attend caucus yesterday, and was seen leaving the bldg with papers under his arm.
The House Leader keeps his job also.

cross posted at bly.
I hope that Danielle Smith is paying attention to what went wrong with the conservative campaigns in Manitoba and possibly Ont.
Hope she doesn’t play it safe, and goes for the juglar. Her candidates should be out and about now, at the coffee shops, knocking on doors to introduce themselves, getting on the talk shows, attending all social events in their ridings, going to kids sporting events.
If she is going to lose she might just as well go down fighting rather than being a me too person.
Oh, and get those candidates on facebook and set up a web page.
So far she has a little ammunition, flip flop on fall sitting, secret deal with the ATA, and putting the deputy premier and house leader back into their previous positions, when they did not support her leadership bid. And I would not be surprised if Gary Mar’s team will provide a lot of info, somehow.
Praying for Ontario tonight, with a gang related rosary, lol.
