To Ralph Goodale's Liberals, economic facts don't matter

Brian LilleyArchive

Ralph Goodale, the Liberal fiscal stalwart, just gave a speech to a liberal think tank called Canada 2020.

He blasted the Harper Conservative's for running a deficit -- AND for not spending enough money.

That's "Liberal logic" for you.

And it's what they've been saying ever since the 2008 election.

But Goodale's own speech to the think tank was full of praise for "stimulus" spending, and he even hinted that a Liberal government might just have to run a deficit, too.

If he seems confused, remember that the leader of the party has said that "the budget will balance itself."

David Kitchen, I like Harper’s policies regarding the middle east and Ukraine, and have faith in how he is handling our national debt. He will balance the budget and therefore put us in a position to make progress on the National debt. Every country has some, and Canada’s is relatively low compared to most if not all others. If you don’t like Harper’s policies and you want to say so, do, but be specific, so people can respond to you.

“Liberal logic” is an oxymoron.

Michael Bergen – “I wonder if he (Justin) signs his credit card bills with IOUs.”

I doubt he has ever dealt with his own finances at all. He probably has someone else do that for him. The perfect Liberal to balance the nation’s books, Liberal style.

Many people (esp. the Liberals, of course) like to praise Paul Martin for balancing the books, but when you have to decrease the payment transfers to the provinces and steal from the E.I. fund to get the books in balance then that really isn’t good financial management. That would be like taking taking away your children’s allowance and take money from your savings account to cover your chequing account (because it was in overdraft) and then pat yourself on the back because you balanced your chequing account. Only in Liberal accounting school of fantasy land is that a good practice.

Why all the name calling ? Why not comment on Mr. Harper’s policies on the middle east , on Ukraine, on our national debt, or any other policies he may have in the future. What do you gain by all this name calling ?

Goodale is a socialist idiot. Funny to listen to corky (dion) bumbling broken English again. What an embarrassment.
Rebel media does a great job calling these socialist tools out. And then there’s justin troodo – the budget will balance itself.
Liberals are truly a fringe party now – third place finish three-peat in October.

Well to be honest he is a Liberal stinker/thinker. Like most Liberals they think they are the only ones right on any/every subject.
I wonder what a shrink would say about that? I think the shrinks should occupy anywhere I Liberal party resides with a majority.
Of course being a Conservative I may be wrong. Try to get a Liberal to say that!

This is the phoniness of politics I find hard to take and even worse it trouble’s me that they have any support from the general public. There was another story tonight where Trudeau was criticizing Harper for not doing more to support the arts but wouldn’t commit to making any changes if he was elected and yet he refrained from criticizing the liberal premier of Nova Scotia who is responsible for the tax cuts to the industry. http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/trailer-park-boys-cathy-jones-protest-outside-n-s-legislature-1.2328007

Spend a little and you can run a deficit, which is bad but if you spend even more, the deficit will be so massive, the budget will balance itself. How come none of the news papers don’t talk about this JT logic? Oh I forgot. I wonder if he signs his credit card bills with IOUs.

Ralph Goodale flip flops like a fish out of water. I wonder if he even notices his contradictions.

There is no pill for stupid. Everything is perfect and everyone’s happy as long as you aren’t spending your own money is Turdo’s theory. I wonder if he runs his house the same way? Oh, wait, his wife takes care of all those bills – she must have figured out he was fiscally incompetent, but it didn’t matter because he had a big inheritance and she had control. Absolutely no concept of reality. Amazes me that Darwin hasn’t already dealt with these guys.

Justs proves Liberalism is a mental disorder. Only a liberal will add 1 + 1 = 3 or 4 I don’t know but it doesn’t matter it will be all the same.
