  • Say what you will about Bush - at least he takes questions...

    Not like our guy. First, he muzzles his cabinet, now he won't even talk to the press corps.

    I don't know about you other canucks out there, but I don't trust this guy. I'm afraid that he will energetically exacerbate regional differences for short-term political gain. I don't believe that he is really interested in addressing the democratic deficit. I think he intends to portray himself as the victim of Liberal (and liberal media) conspiracy (like the vast bureaucracy of Liberal appointees) to dodge accountability for his government's actions. I also suspect that he will make poor social policy decisions, in order to move the country towards some sort of questionable trickle-down economic theory.

    However, for the time being, we will simply have to wait to see what happens. Maybe (hopefully?), I'll be wrong, and he'll have a positive impact on the country. Time will tell.


    Principles of good Sandbox Etiquette:
    Assume good faith - Be polite, please! - Work toward agreement. - Argue facts, not personalities. - Concede a point when you have no response to it, or admit when you disagree based on intuition or taste. - Be civil. - Be prepared to apologize. In animated discussions, we often say things we later wish we hadn't. Say so. - Forgive and forget. - Recognize your own biases and keep them in check. - Give praise when due.

    Treat others as you would have them treat you
