Klein On Political 'Life Support' - (TOLD YOU SO)!!

Well, well, well! Buckdog has been predicting (accurately) that political life for Ralph Klein was about to end. At last nights Leadership Review, he pleaded, he begged, he whinned and he grovelled to keep his job as Premier until 'HE' decides it is time for him to go. And what did Alberta Tories, in convention, have to say to Ralph? Simply this...Ralph, it is time for you to go.

You see in Ralph's mind, he has become more important than his Caucus, his Govenment, his Party and the People of Alberta. He really did believe all of his own hype and as is typical with many politicians, he felt invincible.

Buckdog Politics has been predicting Ralph's fall from power for a few weeks now. We were correct. Those who find themselves 'shocked' at the results of the review do not understand how politics works. Case in point. After leading the United Kingdom to Victory in World War II, the great leader, Winston Churchill was turfed out months after the wars end. Why? Because the war was over, his skills were no longer required. The greatest Prime Minister in British history was turfed out because he did not understand how the people think politically.

When politicians start listening to their own hype and stop listening to the people, defeat is just a matter of time.

Good bye Ralph - and thanks for all the memories. Don't let the door hit you in the 'arse' on your way out!!!

It started in late February with Klein throwing a book at a teenage page in the legislature when he didn't like an Opposition question.

Then the budget received unprecedented criticism for what some perceived as reckless spending and no detailed plan to cope with the problems emerging in Alberta's booming economy.

His refusal to budge from a two-year retirement plan was the final straw to delegates who gave him only 55 per cent support in this weekend's leadership review. "All of that was a toxic political brew and ultimately it exploded in his face," said Taras.
