This time... I'm not lying

Dalton McGuinty makes another promise.

Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty, whose 2003 campaign promise not to raise taxes dogs his Oct. 10 re-election bid, said Ontarians should read his lips.

"We will not have to raise taxes, because we're in charge. We know exactly where we are," he said yesterday on Global's Focus Ontario.
So Dalton, what you're saying is, after all the lies you've peddled to us over the last four years... you've decided to turn over a new leaf?
Until yesterday, McGuinty has tried to avoid saying "we will not have to raise taxes," instead answering reporters' questions with simple "yes" or "no" responses less likely to be used on television.

That's because he and his handlers worry it would spur TV newscasts to air the clip then re-broadcast the infamous 2003 campaign commercial, where he promised: "I won't raise your taxes and I won't cut them either."
Fool me twice... shame on me.

The Ontario sheeple can choose the 'hero of Caledonia' if they want. Just remember, you will get what you vote for and you will get what you deserve.

Imagine the 'law' in Caledonia spread throughout the province...keep that in mind when you vote.

I believe he meant he wouldn't raise taxes ON dogs.

Dolton McLiar has made BIG promises to teachers and aboriginals behind the scenes - those promises he will keep - by raising taxes to pay for them.

Aboriginals & teachers are sacred cows and both groups have big media machines behind them, so Dolton can't afford to piss them off - that's why no one is calling for his head despite his lies and incompetence: millions of dollars + media machines work.
