Just Futile, Or The Very Height Of Futility?

Some disagreement over how much the Tories actually managed to accomplish last time around. Gov. whip Jay Hill says:

Our Conservative Government introduced a total of 70 bills and, even in this minority parliament, 34 of those bills, or half, received Royal Assent.

Michael Geist, on the other hand, puts the number a bit lower, and has the links to back him up:

Only 27 of the 64 Government bills introduced during the current session have received royal assent, leaving 37 bills in need of a restart.

Either way, back in the 38th parliament the Libs were batting .560. Furthermore, one of the bills passed was Bill C-38 - the Civil Marriage Act. Compare that to the bucket of chicken-feed this session represents.

Harper "The Recycler". He doesn't have any new ideas or vision. He just shuts down parliament and recycles the old ones over and over again.

George Bush - "the Decider"

Stephen Harper - the "Runaway Recycler"

As for recycling, Doesn't Harper just say "It was the Liberals who wouldn't pass this so we will try again"
Never anything to do with him, (as it is now) but always someone else's fault
Why does anyone believe this hypocritical slime?

He'll stand a much better chance now that the senate is balanced.

It's funny how, all of a sudden, the cretinous wingnuts care about what's going in the Senate.
