Ding Dong The Prick Is Gone

It took nine years, but Ontario is finally rid of the most despicable politician in my lifetime.
Dalton McGuinty has resigned on the heels of a staggering power plant scandal that will cost the Province hundred of millions of dollars, on the heels of knifing Ontario’s teachers in the back, and in the midst of going after Ontario’s public service employees, the very people who helped get him elected.
How gutless to leave at this time. What a mess he’s left his party in.
If you’ve been reading this blog since its inception six years ago, you know where I stand.
Dalton McGuinty is the worst politician I’ve experienced since I cast my first ballot in 1978. Of course I have to watch how you position this, because what bothers me about McGuinty, is what some might argue makes a good politician.
He’s a disgusting liar. With no shame.
It’s amazing how this province was duped into giving this man the long run he’s had. He’s been nothing but an enemy of the people with the moves he’s made, calculated around his mandate.
Like the HST. After rejecting the concept prior to his second term, he waits till mid-term to bring it in, hoping the electorate, in typical Ontario fashion, will forgive and forget by the time the next election rolls around.
He’s a manipulator. He’s conniving and he’s untrustworthy. And you voted for him.
It all gets back to the same thing that plagues Ontario. Blind hatred for the Conservatives makes people go into a voting booth and mark Liberal, just because it’s Liberal, and just because it’s not Conservative.
Well look where it’s gotten us. Three quarters of Ontarians now admit they feel poorer now than they did four years ago and it’s tied directly to the HST which we now pay on virtually everything.
McGuinty looked you in the eye and claimed the HST would eventually filter through business and force prices down, but that, like most things McGuinty says is a lie, and if not a lie, a dream.
And hold on all you anti-cons. Yes, the HST was promoted by the Conservatives, but in the end it was McGuinty’s call. His decision. His thirst for cash because he’s totally mismanaged the province.
Funny how he blames everything that goes wrong on the federal government, but all of a sudden, when it meant taking more money out of your pocket, he bought into a federal scheme.
McGuinty’s legacy is something to be ashamed of. From the back-door health tax he introduced during his first man-date, to the botched eco tax he pretends will actually help the environment.
It was nothing but another tax grab.
I laugh when people look back on the Harris government like it was some kind of disease. At least Harris told the truth. You might not have liked what he did, but he did what he said he was going to do.
I’ll take a tough love leader long before I’ll accept a back door liar.
The height of pathetic was the last election when John Tory was punished by the people of Ontario for being fair. Full funding might have seemed distasteful, but as long as the Separate School board exists, full funding should be an option for everyone.
How ironic that John Tory introduced a fair and equal plan while being honest, only to be toppled by one of the most horrific liars in the history of Canadian politics.
Hopefully there are brighter days ahead for the province, but I don’t trust the electorate of this province. It’s amazing how many people, who appear to be smart, become dummies when they walk into a polling station.
And believe me people, my position is nothing to do with party politics. I’ve voted for all three parties over my lifetime.
This is all about truth and honour and integrity….. and McGuinty has none of it.
