What are your thoughts on this?



Do you think he is riding his dad's coat tails?



Do you think he'll make a difference?



Is he the young blood that Canadian politics needs?

I just can't get past him having the same first and last name as my father.

I don't follow politics very much, but I will say this, I believe the only reason he got it was because of his name and who his dad is.

I was actually just thinking that when I saw there was a response lol.



The apathy in our country towards politics makes me a little sad.

Apathy is killing the american dream over here.

I've been away off and on this winter, and i havent done a search, but i doubt there have been any threads or substantial threads about the ridiculous budget that Obama submitted nor the fact that he paid 18.4% in federal taxes (far from what he preaches as a "fair share).
