Blogging Tory Challenge- Who Guergis Should Be Suing...

I find both quite amusing, and completely pathetic that former MP Helena Guergis has filed a defamation lawsuit against PM Stephen Harper and some others in the Conservative Party, while seeming to ignore those that did the real damage to her reputation, members of the NDP, Liberals, and Bloc. So, to that end, I think it would be a fun Blogging Tory challenge to post some of the most extreme comments regarding the allegations that were made against Guergis.

The goal of this challenge is two-fold. #1 is to show how Guergis sour grapes and inability to accept her fate is more about partisan hate than any real damage to her reputation. #2 is the more important part of the challenge. Let's show Guergis what she seems to have overlooked, that being the smear job by the opposition parties against her, as well as some of the usual suspects in the msm. By doing so, the defence in the lawsuit will have plenty of ammunition in it's defence, showing Guergis lawsuit is more about attempted paybacks than any real defamation.

Of course Guergis could amend or file suit against those making said comments. If not, she might need to explain why. So, to kick things off, I thought I would quote one Pat Martin, NDP MP and one of the worst offenders regarding Guergis:

"New Democrat MP Pat Martin (Winnipeg Centre) said the allegations must be serious.

“This is huge. There has got be something really serious under foot here ... for Harper to distance himself in an extreme and extraordinary way," Martin said Friday. “This is not just a resignation it's political hari-kiri. Falling on your sword is one thing but when you disembowel yourself it's something else.”

Bob Rae Couldn't Do Math As Ontario Premier,

and apparently still can't. Rae today came out and blamed PM Stephen Harper and his government for the troubles plaguing Attawapiskat. The problem with Rae's thinking is the problems have been ongoing for years. Happened under Mulroney, continued under Chretien/Martin, and still are ongoing. By appointing a third-party the PM is actually the first leader to address the problems facing Attawapiskat, political correctness be damned.

But there is one major flaw in Rae's reasoning. You see, it wasn't till May of this year that Conservative's won a majority and control of the House. At any time from 2006 until May of 2011, Rae's Liberal's could have teamed up with the other looney left socialists, the Bloc and NDP, and either brought down the government or forced changes in the funding of Aboriginals simply by exercising their own majority in the House.

Then again, Rae is the same guy who thought 1+1 = 2 as Ontario Premier, yet somehow changed that formula to 1+1= -$40 billion. To put it in a better perspective, Bob Rae's credibility equals the sum of 0.
