"...public opinion deserves to be respected as well as despised" G.W.F. Hegel, 'Philosophy of Right'

Another Liberal Party campaign to destroy the prime minister bites the dust.

RoweDSmear.jpg David Rowe

This was a campaign that accused the Prime Minister of criminal conduct. Gillard had knowingly committed fraud was the allegation. It was done so on the basis of no evidence. When Gillard offered Abbott 15 minutes in Parliament to argue the case for unlawful behaviour Abbott failed badly. He only got to "conduct unbecoming". Gillard made it very clear in her reply that Abbott had failed.

The Liberal Party campaign has been exposed as a politically motivated smear campaign--a witch hunt, to give it a gender interpretation. The Liberal Party and its media blowhards in News Ltd and Fairfax (Mark Baker of the SMH) are now in damage control with their "Questions remain to be answered " campaign, which was designed to remind the public that Gillard once associated with shady and dodgy characters. Therefore, she cannot be trusted. The issue is about character etc etc

The Liberals have adopted an American Republican strategy and it turned into a train wreck. What will be salvaged from the wreckage. A reframing to go after dodgy and shady unions?

Dumb people(cough cough swinging voters) believe that she is guilty. And thats whats important to the coalition.

Les,
how do you know that swinging voters believe that Gillard is guilty? Guilty of what, by the way?

The Australian will hammer away single-mindedly at the subject day after day, week after week. The newspaper will endeavour to create a compelling narrative that brooks no opposition. They have the capability to do so.

A Pox On Both Their Houses!!!

Pick a few talking points... rely on repetition and to keep the message simple.

Welcome to the brave new world of Australian politics.

Nan,
She is Guilty of whatever sells media.She is Guilty of whatever scores points for the coalition.

It's the Basis of Narcissism isn't it ? To defame and slander the object of their frustration in an attempt to elevate themselves to power by relying of the gullibility of the masses by manipulation.
