John Tory Not Going Quietly Into The Night

January 8th, 2008

Am I the only one wishing Tory would have fought like hell to win the past election?

I say to them (his detractors) that I’m going to fight like hell to keep my job because I believe I can do that job best and that I can be a better premier than Dalton McGuinty in 2011.

Or maybe that was all the fight Tory has, in which case unseating him should be a breeze. I liked this bit best:

I have acknowledged and taken responsibility for mistakes that I made and mistakes that others made because I’m the leader…

If a leader acknowledges and takes responsibility for mistakes that lost an election, is he still the leader? Of course not, that’s what taking responsibility means in this case – resigning.

All through the election, I heard how once the electorate got to know John Tory, they would like John Tory. So why do I find I like him less and less as time goes on?

    It would be Warren Kinsella’s fondest dream to have John Tory stay on.

    He could just use the same tactics as the last campaign. I can just see it now.

    “Would you REALLY want John Tory in charge of our sacred public health care system?”

    “What is John Tory’s HIDDEN AGENDA????”

    Well he seems like a nice guy and has a good community track record which makes him acceptable to people who wouldn’t vote Tory normally, but he blew the election big time and in this world of short attention spans and newness, you only get one shot.

    The problem is will a true blue Tory get in – he or she will be completely dumped on by the media, especially if there is more unemployment in Ontario and a ‘compassionate’ leader is needed, according to the MSM.
