Trudeau misquoting Goethe?

  1. Dear gawd, so he paraphrased a quote….just like everyone else does. And didn’t use footnotes….same as every other speechmaker.

    Here we are lamenting that a political candidate in our country is familiar with Goethe!

    Not to mention we haven’t noticed anything else in the speech….in Quebec or in Calgary!

  2. I knew Goethe sir, and you are no Goethe Gordon Brown. Now Justin now at least looks the part. Next time though he should go for Lord Byron, or Keats.
