Kinda freaky that Bush is talking to Conservatives
From parties around the world... he's not talking to the reigning government. He's talking to the people he Wishes were in power. What the fuck is that?
And to see Harper toadying to him is another example of why we should not vote for these douchebags.

1. He's never figured out
that Canadians REALLY don't like that.

5. Oh, I know... he doesn't GET it
Even my Dad, a longtime Card Carrying Con (GOd knows why he opposes everything they stand for) keeps saying the Cons will never win because of US toadying.

2. I'd be most concerned that he might be giving them tips for
stealing elections.

He can talk all he wants.

4. Harper being Cosy with Bush will hurt him
At a personal level I never trusted Harper from Day 1, just like I never trusted Shrub from day 1

7. I noticed he made a special attempt to cozy up to the religious wing ...
... of the Conservatives, during his visit a while back. Paying more attention to Harper's people than to the PM was likely one of his ways of showing disapproval (and he's got a bucket of them).

I think that the spectacle of the ex-Reformers, grinning happily and bobbing obediently as he talked about prayer, put a lot of people off.

Hasn't Dick Cheney been hanging around with some wealthy people in Alberta? I heard rumours that he bought a house in a gated community near Calgary (?).

8. He's being polite.
Just hearing that guy speak on TV nearly drives me into a homicidal rage. I could only imagine how terrible it would be to be in the same room with him and have to converse with him. Paul Martin, Anne McClellan, and co. are all fairly sensible people and probably feel the same way. Bush is doing them a huge favor by ignoring them.
