Dec 23, 2008:
Flaherty promises deficit will be as temporary as possible.
With the worldwide sagging economy, any deficit can be very harmful, but it is more harmful if it comes from increased spending. At least this government has plans.
Yes, Justin, this government done got itself some plans. So ... how exactly did that work out? Oh:
Huge deficits on the way.
I'm withdrawing my support for the Conservative Party of Canada over this.
In an interview with Sun Media, Harper said he's comfortable with spending the country's way out of a recession. Under pressure from opposition parties threatening to defeat his government and form a coalition, the fiscal hawk and former economist said he would present the same economic plan -- including massive deficit -- even if he had a majority government.
I will not be voting for the Conservatives anymore.
It's really not a pleasant sight when Conservative Boy meets Real World. That never turns out well.
P.S. Just so you know, you do not want to fuck with Justin:
I'm young, I'm fit, I'm angry and I'm loud. I'm a hopeless romantic and tough guy. I've given myself to death and then cheated him. I was once a commie, now an ultra Tory. I love animals and I eat red meat. I'm a Jew and proud of it. Don't like it? Too bad.
And if you got a problem with that, you can take it up with Justin personally. You can find him where you find most kick-ass, he-man members of the Blogging Tories -- downstairs at his mom's place, wondering when she's getting back with his latest shipment of Cheet-O's and Dr. Pepper.
