pseudo chrétien increasingly delusional

pseudo chrétien is a sad shell of a leader., This is how the grits are raising money now? It's laughable.

Until Stephen Harper wins his next majority, Jean Chrétien will be remembered as the most successful Canadian politician of our time. He unified the Liberal Party of Canada, stared down separatism, balanced the books and stood up for free trade. And he made it look easy. Putting aside the sponsorship scandal and Shawinigate, he has a solid legacy. And he shouldn’t squander his reputation by writing cynical, and even ridiculous, fundraising propaganda for the political party that started disintegrating the second he stopped being its leader.

“Unless we are bold. Unless we seize the moment. Everything we built will start being chipped away,” Mr. Chrétien wrote in a fundraising email circulated on Tuesday. “The Conservatives already ended gun control and Kyoto. Next may be a woman’s right to choose, or gay marriage. Then might come capital punishment. And one by one, the values we cherish as Canadians will be gone.”

The email ends, somewhat anti-climactically, with a solicitation for a $5 donation. Yes, it has come down to this for the cash-starved, third-place party that just a decade ago seemed destined to govern Canada in perpetuity.

Its becoming obvious that what that individual is really concerned about is that he will only be remembered as the guy that carried a briefcase full of golf balls he got from Bill Clinton.

rite he was no where to be seen when the sepratism started getting strong. he hid from public like a little liberal chicken untill the last minute. when he pleaded to the nation on national TV I remember people asking where the heck is our Pm at. infact Preston Manning was going around doing more then cretien was. Cretien is a chicken and wouldn't say anything bad about bush infront of him but behind his back he was caught calling him a moron. on a mic.
