Watch your mouth!

Man, oh man. What is Stephen Harper doing? In a recent torrent of offensive diatribe (see A mid summer night’s ream and comments), Stephen Harper is quickly making any idea of a summer makeover a lost cause.

I defended his earlier comment as an understandable anger toward the actions of the Liberal government regarding the final vote on Bill C-48. The comment was not right, it was extremely ill advised, but it was understandable. However, you would think that after receiving the response that Harper’s comment produced, one would be convinced to watch their mouth during future meetings with the press? But oh no, Steve couldn’t stop there. His recent comment on Bill C-38 is an unfathomable move toward complete and utter self destruction:

“I think because this bill is only being passed with the support of the BQ, I think it will lack legitimacy with most Canadians. The truth is most federalist MPs will oppose this legislation,” – Stephen Harper

With each new offensive remark, I think Stephen Harper is loosing further “legitimacy with most Canadians” as a viable alternative for Prime Minister. Sadly, with each comment by Harper, poor Peter MacKay is left in the difficult position of attempting to justify his leader’s statement:

“It makes it an issue of Quebec versus Canada. Most Canadians have a skeptical view of Pequistes breaking up the country” – Peter MacKay

Unfortunately, these responses are only to the detriment of one of the Conservative Party’s few viable Prime Ministerial hopefuls. As a fellow conservative who would like to see the party, at the very least, remain official opposition after the winter election, I would suggest that Steve have his speeches and comments proof read prior to presenting them.

    I noticed on the CBC ticker this evening that a few Conservative Communications/strategy figures quit. Perhaps new blood in the communications department will help your party. Or, they may be fleeing the sinking ship.
