Amazing to watch the socialist squitterati continue to pursue Abbott in such a focused and relentless manner. They clearly haven't learned a thing. It's as if they still believe that he is the Coalition's weak spot, and ultimately unelectable.
Makes you wanna say: "Hey bozos. He's actually got the gig, and the more you slag him off, the more highly people regard him!"
on their obsession with the Government's so-called dodgy expenses
claims: It goes without saying that they're applying a double standard.
There were plenty of cases like this when Gillard and Rudd were PM. But
the same hacks squawking up a storm now were pretty much silent then.
Then there's all this eye rolling when it comes to the
fact that so many claims related to attendance at various weddings.
Puffing themselves up with faux indignation, they huff: "How could you
possibly claim such an intimate expression of love as a political networking event!"
reminiscent of their tactics on "marriage equality". Their sole aim is
to cast themselves as big-hearted compassionate types and the Libs as
mean-spirited arseholes. This may convince a few credulous cretins out
there. But most can see beyond it.
Then there's the
ideological inconsistency. They are always bitching about how marriage
is a repressive social institution to enslave women; that's it's not
about love at all.
If that's what they believe, then why are they shocked that
conservative pols would see marriage as a political activity above all.
And if the institution is so oppressive, why would they wish it upon
gays and lesbians anyway?
But of course it's pointless to
ask such questions of these grotesque, hateful numpties. They're driven
by emotion, not sense, after all.
Stop it Matt you will undermine their double standardsReplyDelete

That insight could take a while to unfold. Three or four terms of government at least, from where I stand.
Maybe. It took Howard a couple of terms before such an effect took hold. Near the end of his reign the Howard haters were actually a blessing for him.Delete
Still, I think he hung around too long and the electorate just had enough of him. I think that's inevitable. People will eventually want a change no matter how well you govern.
Will be interesting to see what happens with Abbott. I'm curious to see if his enemies will ever manage to restrain themselves enough to focus on real issues, develop cogent arguments and actually land some punches.

That's pretty much Julia Gillard's argument.
