Bush the Bonehead

You know, I did like George Bush. Actually, as man he is quite the individual: a strong and steadfast leader willing to stand straight in his convictions - not a sentence many could use to describe more than a handful of today's political figures. In this category Bush Jr. stands tall.

But aside from being a complete moron and the fact that the man's administration couldn't organize a spaghetti supper if it wanted to, George now decides that he wants to play judge and jury. In his latest move Juror George has decided that former White House aid and best bud Scooter libby is in fact, guilty of obstructing justice, perjury and making false statements. Then as Judge George, it was decided that a 30 month jail term and a $200,000 fine is excessive. So what happens.....well Mr. President has used the powers bestowed upon him to commute the sentence handed down by the courts.

As a conservative, I've attempted to do all the defending I can for this man...but this is it. I mean really, hes guilty, and should serve the time for the crime. In one breath Bush talks about spreading freedom, liberty and the rule of law and in the next breath commutes the sentence of his own best bud. Give me a break, Bush.

I for one am done.

Comuzzi....a Tory? Yep.

Rumours began to surface just after his expulsion from the Liberal caucus that Joe Comuzzi, the now independent Member of Parliament from Thunder Bay -- Superior North, would join the Conservative caucus. Well, about four months later and this is seeming like the case. PMSH is set to announce on Tuesday, that like MP Wajid Khan (Mississaugua--Streetsville), Mr. Comuzzi will be joining the government caucus.

Mr. Comuzzi is an exceptional man with an immense amount of wisdom. He is a passionate advocate for Northern issues and I, as a Northern Ontarian, am excited by the possibility that he will be joining our team. I have no doubt that this will breathe a great depth of knowledge in our caucus to now be able to contribute more to the debate surrounding Northern Ontario and its most specific issues.

I has been confirmed to me, by some insiders that indeed this information is true and Mr. Comuzzi will be part of PMSH's team come Tuesday.

Cools no longer Cool.


You heard it hear folks, the Liberal turned Conservative Senator from Toronto, Anne Cools is no longer a member of the Conservative Caucus.

Earlier today, in a memo to Conservatives, the Senate Caucus Chair outlined that Senator Cools has been removed from caucus for several reasons including not supporting the budget and failing to attend a caucus meeting since October 2006.

Coincidence, I think not.

This is the second resignation in as many days by a Liberal MP. Not only do I find this highly suspicious but also a complete disrespect for democracy. I wonder if Jim Peterson would be resigning so soon if Paul Martin had won last time, i think not.

Its interesting strategic move for the Liberals but really means little considering both are safe Liberal seats. The Prime Minister has 6 months to call the by-election and it must be called for within six months from then. Essentially this means that there does not need to be a by-election for 12 others words, we will likely see a general election before these by-elections. This would be a smart move by Harper.

On the other hand, Harper has about 2 weeks to call a by-election in Jean Lapierre's old riding Outremont in Quebec, another safe Liberal riding.

Toronto Centre, hmm.

An interesting development today...

Bill Graham has resigned. The CBC had the best article on event. Its interesting that some have noted an apparent strategy behind the development. Some have argued that this latest move is is a formulated one on behalf of the Liberal party to show some momentum in a byelection and perhaps even get Bob Rae into the house soon. Mr. Rae, from my perspective, has a very commanding appeal. He is charismatic, articulate and quite intelligent. Aside from the many policy and political disagreements I may ahve with the man he is an excellent example of a superb political figure.

On the other hand, I could see this simply being Bill Graham realizing that its going to be some time before an election and just wanting to get out of the place....

What do you think? Is Bill Graham trying to give his party and parting gift, or is it purely a matter of a personal nature?
