Here's one for you:

If you want quagmire, check out those attack ads...

I, like many others, don't see the majority as a return to decency. It's simply that the bully finally wore us down and got his own way.

I was referring to the quagmire here my friend. But to your point, people were not bullied to vote one way or the other, they didn't have to vote at all even.

Canadians have finally given Harper the "Hammer."

Trouble is when your only tool is a hammer, suddenly every job starts to look like a nail. May you not be "nailed" during the next for years.

An interesting article in the Atlantic for the interested folks in the Excited States.

well, it didn't take very long for Harper to start reneging on his promises....

Tories back off campaign pledge to show a surplus by 2014-15 - The Globe and Mail

all of those empty promises with the condition of a balanced budget will have to wait....and wait...and wait...

I wonder if people will still be gullible enough to vote for them in the next election when they make the same promises again?

But:

“We will do the strategic and operating review and we will book [those savings] once the review is done. That will get us to balance a year earlier, but is not part of the upcoming budget,” Chisholm Pothier, Mr. Flaherty’s spokesperson, said on Wednesday.
