Dick Cheney Borrows From Stephen Harper's Playbook

Anyone who thinks that the right wing leaders of both Canada and the United States are not playing form the same playbook should make note of two separate news stories from this week.

In the Canadian House of Commons, Prime Minister Stephen Harper received the following news coverage: Harper Calls Liberals Taliban Lovers

"OTTAWA - Prime Minister Stephen Harper accused the Liberals Wednesday of showing "passion" for the Taliban and not supporting Canadian troops in Afghanistan during a bitter exchange in Parliament."

Then this morning, while combing through the online news, I find American Vice President Cheney in the news with: Cheney: House Is Undermining the Troops.

"MANALAPAN, Fla. (AP) -- Vice President Dick Cheney on Saturday accused the Democrat-led House of not supporting troops in Iraq and of sending a message to terrorists that America will retreat in the face danger."

These two administrations are mastering the art of doublespeak or 'truthspeak' to a level that George Orwell only wrote about in fiction. The Canadian and American governments are now doing it in reality.

Birds of a feather.....

I know you are kidding, but I think that they are using the same playbook. Cheyney and Rove came up with this stuff years ago and ordered their executive assistant (Bush) to use it. Harper is just stealing their ideas.
