Respect


 

Michael Ignatieff, April 6. “I believe that Mr. Harper is lacking respect towards Mr. Mulroney … after all he was a prime minister of Canada. And I have respect for the institution and I have respect for the character of the person.”

Stephen Harper, April 8. “I think what Canadians will see is when it comes to a very difficult issue of government conduct and government ethics, this government has behaved responsibly and the other party leader has absolutely no moral compass when it comes to dealing with this kind of a matter.”

Conservative caucus meeting, today. “The message was he’s a past prime minister and deserves to be treated with respect.”


 

Respect

  1. I simply cannot believe it: Our two major parties, both led by venal shills.

    • Depressing, isn’t it?

  2. Harper’s moral compass is all about spinning.

  3. Canadian politics can make a person dizzy …

  4. Harpo’s moral compass points only to what can guarantee him a majority – principles be damned.

    • The magnetic majority

  5. I think the rank-and-file Tories are quite fed up with all this internecine bullshit.

  6. It was convenient that the ‘brilliant strategist’ was out of the country when this unfortunate misunderstanding occurred; he would have had no idea how things could have gotten so out of hand in his absence. But now that he’s back (and public opinion suggests that throwing Mulroney under a bus won’t fly), he’s sorted it all out.

  7. and the other party leader has absolutely no moral compass when it comes to dealing with this kind of a matter.”

    Smartest man in the room, all right.

    What possesses this weird little personage to make accusations in bad faith (accusations he doesn’t believe himself) is beyond me. Perhaps he lacks a moral compass?
