…. but no knockout punch.
Federal Leadership Debate
Well our one and only English leadership debate is now history.
For me, I was hoping Harper would have been pinned to the mat on a whole host of issues but he wasn’t. In fact, he stood his ground pretty good.
Iggy was better than expected but needed to get down and dirty but couldn’t, or wouldn’t… maybe it’s not in him to be that way?
Jack was good and came across as the candidate having the best policies and vision for taking this country forward in my opinion, along with coming across huge in the trust factor area.
Duceppe seemed to struggle this time around but as always was very pointed and direct, but at times was too gentlemanly in allowing others, especially Harper, to go on and on, on his dime.
Over all, the one thing I found both disturbing and disconcerting was how the director (camera man) did not switch away when Harper was speaking, but instead allowed Harper to address the camera, rather than his opponents? Instead of turning away, the camera and Harper are having a dialog. It was more of a speech and not an exchange with an opponent. Something fishy here, I thought? And a big advantage for Harper.
Anyways, those are my thoughts. What are yours?
The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you’ve got it made.
