Open Letter to Jack Layton

Dear Jack,

I am going to give you some free advice here. Back the government on extending the Anti-Terror laws. You will be seen to be flexible and responsible. You will be the hero. Dion will look even more pathetic by comparison.

Think about it, Jack.

NDP would implode.

I agrre with you Joanne. I suggested that the NDP recosider this as well. It might bring them back some the support they lost recently from dion and gang. It would show they are actually interested in the safety of Canadians. Maybe Bob Rae could return to the NDP and lead the charge

Harper is the kind of leader we need to lead us into the War on Terror

Dion is not a Wartime Leader

Red Tory said...

Not going to happen Joanne. Voting against it won’t upset any of the NDP’s constituency and if Jack were to change his vote it would simply reinforce the impression amongst many that he’s Harper’s all too co-operative lapdog these days. If anything, it would serve to alienate the NDP’s more extreme left-wing supporters.

Possibly, but it might pick up some support from the other side; i.e. steal from the Liberals.

In any case, I agree it would be a risky position for Jack, even if it were in the best interest of the country.

The very fact that we're even contemplating Layton moving to the right of Dion on any issue, shows just how far left Dion has taken the Libs.

It'll take awhile for this to resonate with voters, but when it does, the center will leave Dion faster that you can say "I recieve award for the birds, the seabirds."

Red Tory said...

Joanne -- A little wishful thinking?

Biff -- Your refrain that Dion is a radical socialist/leftist/Marxist/etc. is becoming awfully tiresome. Simply repeating this lie over and over again doesn’t make it true.

If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and talks like a duck........

oh, and focused on "duck studies" in university......

I'm gambling on it being a duck.

Red,

Happy that you're back in action.

Otherwise, Joanne (TB), that idea is brilliant. I think it would be hilarious. No surprise that Liberals react with hostility to the idea.

Do you think Western Prairie NDPers or Maritime NDPers would react badly? Nope. Only deep-urban Dippers would react badly.

Anon sounds like a Liberal dirty tricks expert trying to lay the groundwork for a "hidden agenda" smear campaign

Chucker - Yet ironically, that could be a target if there were to be a terrorist attack. (Or the oilfields).
