I haven't found that anyone hates Trudeau the way some Americans have hated Obama. I don't think littlemissrock is Canadian.

Maybe not. I'm just seeing parallels. Lol. The Hitler comparison made me laugh.

Considering that Harper ran on prejudice, there is an irony there. But I don't think the hostility that plagues Obama is going to migrate north. I would be horrified. It's a pity that we will never know what Obama could have done without all the roadblocks placed in front of him. It was embarrassing to watch, even from here.

You have no idea... That's not even hyperbole. Living in Texas, I still shake my head daily. Heck, look at the dimwits that are elected here, and consider that's the "best" of the lot.

When one thinks that Trudeau acted in plays and movies but did not take drama as a major for a BFA or that Harper plays in a band but seems to be a hobby with him I am not sure who is the supposed failed artists. In my opinion neither.

It is a sad world where if you are not a Glen Gould, George Cloney or Wayne Gretzky you could be considered a failure. It is even sadder when it is fair to imply that anyone you do not agree with is a monster responsible for the deaths of millions. Are we so in need of either demonizing those we do not agree with or trivilizing the damage done by those actual monsters?

I know Jesse and not only the expense of an education but lack of solid good paying jobs that have things like extended healthcare benefits and employer contributions to a pension plan. I feel for people in College or in their 20's just starting out and I completely agree that the former PM just wasn't a strong advocate for so many groups of people. I can't possible imagine JT being worse and at least the man has a human element to him. I think he genuinely cares about people and not just those belonging to his base.

Well JT secured my vote after some Muslim women got attacked and he got on the radio and told Harper to stop before someone got seriously hurt. Mulcair was against it too but he sounded like a robot/typical politician talking about it I heard genuine emotion in Trudeau's voice, he sounded like he was upset but trying not to sound upset but failed at not sounding upset. He seems like an empathetic person.

That was what changed me from "I'm probably gonna vote Liberal cos they're most likely to win my riding to or whatever" and "Well I wouldn't mind looking at this guy for the next 4 years cos he's pretty hot" (I was so cynical at politics I was thinking that... gonna get screwed no matter what, might as well be by the eye candy) to "Yeah, I'm voting Liberal and believe in this guy."

The "Conservatives are our friends" got me too. I miss the days me and my conservative friends would make fun of each other, not fight with each other. I remember growing up, I wasn't old enough to vote but every year people would get out the super soakers and have Liberal vs Conservative water fights. Lol

So yeah he got my vote cos I can relate to his shortcomings. Weed smoking can't hold in emotions. A human came out behind the politician nonsense.

Why? He's just as inept as the dimwit he replaced.

Exactly. Justin has his father's name, his mother's genes and no experience whatsoever. That hardly sounds like justification for all the praise he has been getting in the media.

He doesn't have no experience, he has about 8 years in parliament, about as many as Harper had when he became PM. Like Harper, he also has prior experience in various NGOs, (Katimavik), and unlike Harper he was first elected in a swing riding that hadn't voted Liberal in many years, really wearing out a lot of shoe leather and working hard to gain his constituents confidence by being an exceptional MP. Alot of this nonsense smells of ageism from the boomers, to be perfectly honest, it's not his experience I think many really have a problem with, it's that his culture and style marks him as of a different generation (although at 43 he's not the youngest PM ever).
