OBAMA VS RUDD

Obama 1 vs McChrystal 0 .... Obama had no choice in removing General Sandy McChrystal from his post. McChrystal executed a McArthur in his criticism of the political establishment (no matter how true). You don't dump on your Commander in Chief and expect to get away with it. Our son (who is in Afghanistan with the UK forces) was on the staff of General David Petraeus a couple of years ago in Iraq. He has respect for Petraeus as a soldier and a commander.

Rudd 0 vs Gillard 1 .... sez it all. Rolled during his first term. Ironic that Rudd came to power riding the mantra that his leadership transcended factional support with many seeing this as a positive. Now those factions, both Left and Right, have combined to force him out Watch Gillard move to reintroduce an ETS and relax moves to tighten Aust borders against asylum seekers. You heard it first.

She seems like a right lefty twat this Gillard. Don't know why Adolf was so keen to see Rudd ditched. Out of the frying pan into the fire?

I think it had more to do with the mining fight.

So where does Goff v Carter figure?

And as soon as I read that Gillard is a former union lawyer, I realised that Rudd was done for.

Vet, they are NOT asylum seekers. They are economic refugees jumping the queue.

Anon, I'm not that keen to see him ditched because I think Gillard will be much harder to beat.

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Oh yeah, Vet. She will appear to tighten immigration, appear to relent on the mining tax, talk about a new ETS and then call an early election. THEN shell do all the things you say she'll do.

so, have the Aussies now got a re-gurgitated helen clark?

I really do wonder if the UN is running things and real sovereignty is a fond memory. The radio today said that the Labour right would be happy with her so how left is she?

She will mess with mining at her peril. Anglo Far East Bullion opinions set out some projects that are already stalled because of the tax threat.

Watch Gillard move to reintroduce an ETS and relax moves to tighten Aust borders against asylum seekers.

Watch as Labour's poll numbers dive ever quicker.

Australia has finally realised that Labour only ever does damage to prosperity and freedom.

Abbott will wipe the floor with Labour and then wipe out the party and the Unions

I'm confused - was Krudd in the pooh because he was promising the ETS, and then reneged, or was he in the pooh because he didn't introduce the ETS.

In other words, was it the broken promise, or the lack of an ETS that got the Aussies' tits in a tangle?

I can't believe how quiet NZ is on the ETS issue - you're like a mob of sheep in the back of a truck - off to the works!

It's because both cunts are labour.

Abbot has lots of unfinished business with the aussie commie left, Labour, Greens & Unions.

He will rip them to shreds, and wipe them out

McChrystal did show a lack of judgement, but my message to Obama is "Listen to what the man is saying"
