On last night's show, I brought you an in-depth conversation with Conservative Party of Canada leadership candidate Kellie Leitch. Here's a brief excerpt:

Jack said, "Kellie Leitch is absolutely clueless and has no chance in hell of being conservative leader or PM … "

You were the one who stated as absolute fact with no equivocation or doubt whatsoever that there was no way at all Trump would win the election.

And you are certain now because … … how?

Grant Woodside,

How brave to confirm your idiocy. Yes, Canadians still self-identify as liberal in varying degrees. A social conservative will not win in this country – even Harper wasn’t that.

Leitch has become a punch line – even The Rebel’s own video had conservatives saying that they don’t want Leitch.

I’m voting for her and I hope she wins. Get ready for the cbc slanderfest if she does. The leftoids are running scared now but like the cornered rats that they are they will prove fanatically vicious in trying to shut down ANY conservative candidate that seems popular.

Even Harper used to say that the Conservative Party was full of “chocolate warriors”

When the heat gets turned up they start to melt.

President Trump woke up the non voters in the United States of America. When they woke up and did their due diligence of what is transforming in their Country and around the World…BAMM!!…. Hey..we gotta get together and stop the insanity…..and they did. Can Canada get together and stop the insanity? I’m hearing the words “fear mongering” again from different sources.

Kellie has my vote Jack.
You are living still in the not so distant past.
Canada is no longer a primarily liberal country.
Much too dangerous for that now.

Kellie’s observation that we “win when we’re not afraid” is dead on. When Conservatives (note the large C) act like whinging wannabe socialists. they lose. What follows is pretty well the same comment I made on another thread concerning the Wild Rose.

The bottom line is, the leader HAS to make the news. He/she has to control the media…not the other way round. In the last 50 years in Canadian politics only a handful of politicians understood that: Ralphy, turdo la first, Levesque, and Harris. They all treated the media with the contempt it deserved, and they all used the media to advance their designs…they didn’t march to CBC’s drum.

If you let the media response dictate your every word, then you end up saying nothing. At the best you spout pablum…at the worst, digested pablum. The problem with the large C crowd in this country is that they have been marching to the media’s drum…which, as we all know, is the Liberal/NDP drum.

And every time someone says, “but what’s the alternative…do you want another four years of the Liberals (or NDP)”, I realize that I am talking to someone who would rather be led than lead. You can choose principles, or you can choose practicalities – look where the latter as landed us.

Who knows what the ‘useful idiot’ troll is on about as Kellie Leitch supports the transgender bill C-16 currently in the Senate, marched in the Toronto Gay Pride Parade along with CINO Patrick Brown, and has not disavowed man-made climate change.

D Mary,

The vast majority of Canadians who have been mocking her. I hate to wake you from your slumber, but Canada is primarily a liberal country – certainly when it comes to social issues. Canadians don’t want her running the show and if you think they do, you are just as delusional as Leitch is.

Jack, what Canadians think she is absolutely nuts? You? That’s a good one, because since it is just you, Gordo Steele, then that says it all, you are the only one. Go back to mommy’s basement know Gordo Jack.

In talking to Sun columnist Lorrie Goldstein about Kellie Leitch’s chances for winning the CPC leadership, Ezra asserted that she “dares to say the unsayable”. Such as?
With respect to Kellie saying “We as conservatives, do the best, when we are not afraid”, sounds like a paraphrase of something Brad Trost said at one of the leadership debates, namely, basically saying ‘Conservatives do well and can win when they run on Conservative values,both social conservative values and fiscal conservative values’. I would go with the latter point of view.

Kellie Leitch is absolutely clueless and has no chance in hell of being conservative leader or PM, because Canadians think she is absolutely nuts.
