  1. Sorry, Argus - I have no respect for Chavannes. None at all.
  2. Geppetto fulfilled his assigned role today with a complete rebuttal of all the most salient points of Wilson-Raybould's testimony. He maintained a calm demeanor throughout the proceedings and never took the bait of those trying to get a rise out of him. I don't doubt for a single moment that he believes his version of events - whether anyone else does besides dyed-in-the-wool liberals is up for debate. For me the surreal moment was once again provided by the Privy Council's clerk - he of hysterical assassination comments during his first appearance. Today he was beside himself over comments appearing in social media. Apparently, there were more than a few folks who found his opening comments last time to be bizarre to say the least - and had absolutely nothing to do with the matter at hand. Unlike Geppetto, he was combative at times and as the questions became more pointed, I was wondering if his blood pressure was out of control as his face kept getting redder and redder. The sooner he is shown the door the better.
  3. Were I a liberal, my thoughts for a new leader would lie with Jane Philpott. Not only has a fuller understanding of how Parliament works and has held more important portfolios, she is respected on both sides of the House. Once I thought Freeland might have also been a good candidate but after showing her blind support of all things liberal, she's out.
  4. You are right about losing respect for her, Argus. You can count me in on that. I let her first comment go by but this last one did it for me. Until she showed her true colors, I had a lot of admiration for the woman. Now I'm left just shaking my head.
  5. Considering what Billie had to say tonight about the resignation, you are right. He'll sink with the ship. He really has nothing to lose. If he isn't re-elected he can always retire to his mansion in Europe and drink wine.
  6. There is much being said on Power Play today about the non-partisanship of many of the cabinet members. This is important as nonpartisans are much less likely to tow the party line - in other words they have no years long loyalty to the party. They were told that all their decisions would be with consensus of cabinet but now are seeing that the only consensus between jt and himself.
  7. The party would be much further ahead to have Jane Philpott run as leader. She has much more experience in a variety of other portfolios than the other women so far. As for Brison, several political pundits have opined that Scottie had to go due to his involvement in the Admiral Norman affair and should it come to it - the little potato did not want to see one of his ministers testifying.
  8. I'm wondering, in spite of her show of support last week, if Freeland may not be having second thoughts. She's a smart cookie and can see which way the wind is blowing. If there is indeed a crisis in cabinet and after such a high-profile resignation based on a principled stand, those left standing with their leader could very well fall with him too and for such a shameful reason.
  9. Wilson-Raybould left herself wide open to this type of characterization referring to her ethnicity as a guide to her decisions. The only real problem is that she is not a Plains Indian and should more appropriately be dressed as a member of her own clan.
  10. Any bets on who is next Argus...........because I'll lay you even odds that this is just the start of more defections.
  11. No way, PIK...........I want to see the little potato have to wear this and any other coming defections all the way to the polls where we will finally be able to rid ourselves of the twit.
  12. CTV covered a good portion of the Cohen hearings, bush-cheney. So we got treated to two leader's being thrown under the bus on the same day. Great day for political junkies.
  13. I just bet the little potato is burning up the phone lines to his old pal Gerry. "Help me, Gerry......help me." LOL
  14. Anyone taking bets that his climate barbie will hang in until the bitter end?
  15. I particularly applaud her - being the first of the one's who've left - for stating clearly that she has lost confidence in the government.
  16. So much for the little potato hoping his latest money give-away would head the news tonight - not a chance in hell of that happening now. This will rule the news all night.
  17. The left wing - most especially the liberal arm of it - cares nothing about the West, Alberta or it's unemployed workers. They will resort to any tactics to try and save Eastern jobs though as is being witnessed now.
  18. Almost zero chance of that happening now that she's crossed the party line and told the truth about what happened while she was acting AG. The PM all but said that she's a goner. Of course, she could always join the Greenies or NDP and give it a run there. I would never want to see her join our party though - not interested in native activists with leftist agendas.
  19. Well they didn't go far considering he was in Montreal when he made his remarks about JWR's testimony. The only thing missing were the buses.
  20. After listening to his remarks in Montreal today, it appears that he is in for the short run - up to the election. JWR's future however is definitely in peril if what the PM stated today. "I completely disagree with the former attorney general’s version of events,” he said, adding he had not ruled out whether she will remain a Liberal MP or be allowed to run for the party in the fall election. “I haven’t listened to all her testimony and I won’t decide before I do.”
  21. I agree that while still acting AG she probably could not resign. However, once she was pushed out and given Vet Affairs, she had evry opportunity to come forward. She did eventually resign but only after the 'still in cabinet' remarks by JT. Moot point though as it looks like her tenure as a liberal MP may soon be over if JT's remarks today are any indication of her future with the party.
  22. Ah but she did - in her FB post after her removal from the AG post and again in the committee meeting today.
  23. Wrong. She ratted him out big time. She ratted out the PMO, the clerk of the Privy Council. Finally we know the truth behind all the PMs lies and subterfuge.
  24. So now we know that continuous and sustained pressure was put on the former AG and she stood her ground. I applaud her for that. What I do not and will not condone is the fact that she should have come forward with her concerns. She should have resigned her post instead of waiting until the PM stupidly said she was still in cabinet.
  25. Watching the Cohen hearing right now. Republicans on committee are losing their minds over his testimony and their tempers.
