Just In Case Ackers1 Was Wondering........

In a comment on another post I made some reference to the way in which our glorious leader is perceived overseas. This, from The Australian.

WHAT do George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Jacques Chirac, Angela Merkel and Helen Clark have in common? They have been having such a difficult time lately that they are widely written off as lame-duck political leaders.............

...........in New Zealand, September's general election produced a hung parliament and Clark is now governing with the support of the minor parties. Winston Peters, the leader of New Zealand First, a party with seven members out of a parliament of 121, is the country's minister for foreign affairs, although he doesn't actually sit in cabinet.

Meanwhile, in Australia, John Howard's problems are inconsequential. Indeed, far from being a lame duck, the PM is in the process of implementing a reform agenda that will bring about long-ranging structural changes in the way Australia is governed and so guarantee another era of prosperity.

See the difference Ackers1? Now what was that you were saying about Little Johnny the other day?

Tim Dunlop's post on this bit of fluff was apt I thought Adolf.

"John Roskam from the Institute of Public Affairs gets to write John Howard a love letter in the pages of today's Australian. Just in case you get embarrassed by men kissing in public, I'll provide a shorter version:

John Howard is perfect and cannot be beaten. I love everything about him.
Now if only we could get the ABC to be this objective."

Personally I prefer the tens of thousands that were marching up George Street this morning chanting "John Howard is a wanker". It was a glorious sight

But Little Johnnie's supporters will have been at work today, and they will be busy in the polling booths come election time.
Wonder who will be leading Labor then?

Anyway, Whale Oil made a wonderful discovery yesterday. All those lefty Democrats who supported the war against terror, realised Saddam Hussein had to go, etc, etc.
No wonder george Bush has come out fighting.
The lefties cannot go on rewriting history and sporeading their lies.

Ackers1 you conveniently forget the 20 million Australians who think Little Johnny is a real good guy. You and the other wankers can parade down George St for as long as you like. You won't be winnning any elections for many a long decade. Get used to it and enjoy you fleeting moment of minority pleasure.

Gerald Henderson had the best comeback to all of this on the ABC's Insiders program last week. He said if these industrial relations changes are so bad, Beazley and the ALP will easily win the next election. The question you then ask yourself is this: would they all be carrying on quite the way they are if they thought that outcome was likely. I don't see it.

Also, Latham needed at least a dozen seats in Queensland at the last election. Today, Kim Beazley drew a crowd of 10,000 in Brisbane to hear his speech. Add another zero to that end he might come close at the next election. Until then, everything else is just a strategy to stem the bleeding.
