Just what Canada needs, another trickle down economics guy. I think we're all still waiting for the last trickle down effect to actually take place.

I would have more respect for Oleary if he was worth maybe $751mil usd cause at least you could say you're Canadian billionaire!

In all fairness Trump is AWFUL! :D
In all fairness Trump is President now.
And Kevin is still on TV. He has not run any political campaign yet.

I read one of O'Leary's books a while back when he first started talking about running for leader. It was about basic personal financial planning. He seems like an okay guy, and I don't think he is as "mean" as his character is on TV. But there were basic facts in the book that were wrong, so he either doesn't know his stuff and can't be bothered to learn it, or he didn't hire a competent writer.

Anyway, running a business isn't like running a country. Many politicians from business backgrounds find that politics isn't as easy as it looked from the outside.

too many people starstruck by these reality TV stars!

I wouldn't be surprised if Joey Jeremiah throws his hat into the political area with the Zit Remedy as his political party! :D

this thread is sooo funny...a bunch of RFD'rs ..praising a conservative moron thats going to try and use his celebrity to become the next PM...what qualifies him?.he has zero social skills, no compassion for fellow humans or the less fortunate, will do NOTHING to help average canadians in need, he is actually quite condescending towards them, and ..not only is he cashing in on your stupidity...you are all basking in it...

look in the mirror...do you see a guy(or girl) that makes 200k plus a year?...if the answer is yes...support the cons...if the answer is no, support anyone else. its that simple...because if you are supporting the cons with the HOPE of joining the 200k plus club and being one of them..its not gonna happen...they sell you and ideology, looking for your support/vote..and it all ends up going to their agenda in the end. period. if you are part of the club, then yes support them as i would..but if you are not...they will use you and your support and find yourself left at the side of the road, no better than the rest of us....and all for what? so the rich can richer and the poor even poorer.

And so begins the push to get the "Kevin O'Leary" meme, branded into everyone's consciousness over the next few years by Canadian media.

I dont hear PM selfie talking down or condescending to average joe..I have heard moron o'leary many times in the past....so you just pick certain bit to compare?

I just can't believe what i read and what you guys think...you guys drink a lot of kool aid..its the mike harris all over again...after he gets in power for a while....all the cons wanna-bees realize they are broke and don't vote for him again..or wait...didn't that happen with harper too?..when the majority of the populace is rich, we will have steady conservative majorities..till they make you broke..its a cycle...wasnt everyone broke in the early nineties after the chin?...voted liberals in..12 years or so..people forget, make money..now they think they are rich..vote harper..2 terms..become broke vote liberal again...coincidence? cons never left the gov't better than when they entered in recent history.
cons take money right out of the system when governing...libs spread it through the system...thats the real difference...both spend..just differently....but for some reason..conservative supporters like to act like they are smarter than everyone else..the dumb asses by into it, because they want to think they are smart too..really? step back and look at the big picture..

and all this talk of future debt for your grand children blah blah blah...you don't know where your children will be, never mind your grand children 2 gens later..both my kids have left ontario already(both in their 20's)..not because of politics, but because of opportunity. Thats always been such a lame argument/statement

....and the condescending part is????

also can you name when the gov't finances were better after a cons. term than what they inherited?...also contradict anything else about my comparisons of the 2 parties?

I assume you are from the west and just hate anything east! and you probably think you all are better /smarter than the rest of the country too?
