KRudd, the “compassionate” chameleon:
The other night during question time, the Australian (Socialist) Â PM KRudd was asked why he slashed the quota for business-migrants and skilled migrants by half, while keeping an open border policy that allows thousands of Mohammedans to settle in this country. His answer was: “to better adjust to the needs of the 21st century”, which left just about everyone dumbfounded.
This is from Andrew Bolt’s blog:
Janet Albrechtsen on the paradox that’s now hurting Â KRudd – thatÂ the more you see of him, the less you see:
We know next to nothing about what truly motivates him, apart from seeking and staying in political office. We know he will morph into any character, no matter how unnatural, if he thinks it will boost his political prospects: whether it’s trying to look cool to a newspaper editor by drinking in a New York girlie club, doing deals with Labor’s left faction to win the leadership or extolling his credentials as an economic conservative in order to win over voters at the 2007 election, only to then turn into a long-winded critic of capitalism when it became the orthodoxy.
People are finally noticing that there is a cold calculation to the way Rudd recalibrates his public persona in a way that his predecessors never did….
Piers Akerman has his number too:
WHEN Kevin Rudd was campaigning for the top job in the nation he was painted as Kev the Compassionate. And Â he can’t keep his fingers out of the till: BEFORE the last election, Kevin Rudd promised he would not change superannuation laws. Now he want’s your money:Â Continue reading ‘Punished for doing the right thing for old age’
Rock’n’roll kills people:
In the case of the embattled Environment Minister, Peter Garrett, former “Midnight Oil” crooner, (who somehow can’t be sacked) Â PM KRudd was asked Â why he won’t get rid of the incompetent fool who embarked (with KRudd’s blessing) on a house insulation scheme costing taxpayers billions:
Peter Garrett has admittedÂ his troubled $2.5 billion insulation program has been linked to 86 house fires around the nation … Mr Garrett has faced Liberal claims in Parliament that he ignored 13 warnings of safety problems that led to the death of four roof insulation installers. (but wait, there’s more)
When called out on the death of Â 8 people resulting from this insulation racket, KRudd expressed confidence in Mr Garrett, saying safety had been his “No 1 priority”, and that Garret actually made Australia ‘safer for all of us’, or some such. Â Â Why Rudd may not dare sack Garrett
Garrett took instant action and …. called his mum over insulation deaths
The world has moved on. But KRudd is still stuck on stoopid and “climate change”
David Marr senses thatÂ he’s not the only warmist now bored with what Kevin Rudd billed “the great moral challenge of our generation”:
