Hampton Hypocrisy Heightened as He Launches Even More Desperate Negative
TORONTO, Oct. 5 /CNW/ - In between getting mad at the Green Party, the
media and Ontarians for not supporting him, NDP Leader Howard Hampton has
cooked up yet another attack ad.
What the attack ad says is entirely forgettable. What is also forgotten
from the ads is the notion of "Don't get mad...Get orange," which had tagged
all their previous ads.
Why did the NDP forget "Get Orange"?
Did they drop it because millions of Ontarians had no idea what it meant?
Or did they drop it - and get even more negative - because voters know
that a vote for the NDP is a vote for the Conservatives?
In 1999 Hampton was Ontario's biggest Harris Helper. This time he has
embraced his role as one half of the new glam couple Ho-Jo, again, putting
political gain ahead of principle.
Only voting for the Ontario Liberals can stop Conservative schemes to
funnel billions out of our publicly funded schools into private religious
schools. Only voting for Ontario Liberals will stop Conservative plans to
introduce two-tier, American style, private health care. And only a vote for
the Ontario Liberals will stop the decimation and privatization of public
services working families need and rely on, because any other vote would
plunge the province back into years of Conservative cuts and chaos.
In other words, Forget Orange.
