Attack Ads.
First, attack ads work. Not only the nerds but most political pundits now see Trudeau as an airhead. Everything he says is considered silly. Note the reaction when Trudeau laughed off Harpers claim that we have to stop the ISIS at once. Really. With our puny little token show of force Harper was going to take on the ISIS? How obviously a self pretentious bluff. I thought Trudeau nailed it but the media was so shocked by seeing a guy’s head cut off that they lost theirs.
And here’s another quote of his that draws chuckles—pointing out that the economy sets the stage for the budget. Well, is that not what Harpers keeps saying when he justifies our economic situation by first blaming Europe, then later the U.S. and now Greece—does our budget not have to be adjusted to the existing economic situations? Well to the thinking voter that is exactly what Trudeau was telling us.
And look at the media’s focus on the determined efforts by politicians to discredit each other’s party. Is this what governing a great nation is about?—about obsessing over how to destroy each other’s party? Far too many essays have played out on how these guys will make strong leaders Leaders for what?—certainly not the complex job of running a nation of over 35 million people
And that’s it ,isn’t it? Too many people’s heads hurt when they have to deal with complex decisions so we end up voting for a drama queen like Harper?.
The only cure is voter education.
