Canadians Believe Duffy Over Harper, Poll Shows

Canadians Believe Duffy Over Harper, Poll Shows

“As many people have never trusted Harper this poll does not come as a surprise. Harper's first mistake was to appoint Duffy. Harper's next mistake was to think that he could get rid of Duffy without too much problem. The biggest mistake in this entire tawdry affair rests with Duffy. He alone sought out compensation benefits that were fraudulent in nature. His attempt to try and drag others down with him is pathetic. He needs to go. The voters will decide Harper's fate.”

“Duffy’s audacious statement “they have no moral compass” would have been more appropriately stated with the word “I” and not “they”. Duffy should have never been appointed a senator and the PMO must accept that mistake. As a long-time established resident of Ottawa, his appointment as a senator for PEI based on the fact that he had a ‘cottage’ there is beyond comprehension. That aside, Duffy ought to have known that he did not qualify for some of the entitlements he managed to obtain. Saying that his claims were approved by someone does not relieve him from his actions in seeking compensation he was not entitled to. Duffy is not only an embarrassment for the PMO, he is a disgrace to the Senate. Although his theatrics provides material for the opposition parties, and the media, the disgrace associated with this tawdry affair is his alone.”

MJWood on Oct 29, 2013 at 11:57:08

“Duffy is not the only one who is an embarrassment! The entire PMO is an embarrassment!”

“Who appointed Duffy? What was Duffy's responsibility once appointed? No, this cancer has to be excised at the root and that would be harper and the PMO.

Nice attempt at spin though.”

YankinCanada on Oct 29, 2013 at 11:02:21

“Wrong. It now easily reaches HARPER and his lies and obfuscations. HARPER knew everything and he LYING to our faces.”

Cynical Canadian on Oct 29, 2013 at 09:19:13

“It may beyond comprehension as you state, but this falls at the feet of Harper, not Duffy. Who is the one that appointed and vetted these senators? Harper.

It does take some real mental gymnastics to think that Harper is not involved in this.”

“Even though it would be best for everyone if Duffy, Brazeau and Wallin simply rode off into the sunset, it would leave many unanswered questions. If the PM has nothing to hide, let him suggest a full and transparent review of the matter. Attempts to try and distance the PMO from this situation only adds to the suspicions.”

“Any head of government that uses their phone to discuss sensitive issues should be prepared to accept that their conversations are being monitored, not simply by other governments but by anyone.

“There are racists everywhere and the Tea Party is no exception. I believe they may be perceived as more racist simply based on some of their political positions, including the need for religion, specifically Christianity, to be integral to their policies. When so many people are becoming more progressive and tolerant in their thinking, the T.P. seems determined to turn back the clock.”

“HOw would you know. Do you hang out with Tea Party people, or as you call them, "baggers." Or do you just lap up the spoon feeding of the leftist propaganda machine?”

thadian on Oct 25, 2013 at 06:28:49

“They are less afraid of a negative public image than most Republicans. They are willing to admit they are racist without care, just as many Democrats in the 2001-2006 era were willing to admit they were pot smoking, anti-war, anti-christianity hippies.

The Democratic Party disenfranchised them, wouldn't acknowledge these people as Democrats or even as Liberals.

Just like Republicans are doing to the Tea Party. In secret, most Republicans are Tea Party, they just won't admit it for public imaging reasons.

Like they say in Red States: "Don't say you hit your wife; just do it! If someone else complains, point the finger at someone else who did it!"”

“The GOP's faulty approach was doomed from the start. They should have never included changing "Obamacare" as the ship had already sailed. Had they excluded that element and focused for other changes they may have reached an acceptable compromise. It is no wonder that the most people are holding the GOP responsible for the current impasse. Perhaps it is time for the key GOP players to have a long look in the mirror to see the answer to their problems.”
