Howard the campaigner: legend or reality? : Comments

By Peter Tucker, published 8/10/2007

John Howard is unlikely to win this election. That is not to say he canít, just that to do it he will have to live up to his legend.

Jeez, that's an awful lot of material just to say that little Johnny might, or might not, win the election.

LEGEND: -- defined by a highly flexible set of parameters, which may include miracles that are perceived as actually having happened, within the specific tradition of indoctrination where the legend arises, and within which it may be transformed over time, in order to keep it fresh and vital, and realistic.

Reality, in everyday usage, means "the state of things as they actually exist." [1] [2] The term reality, in its widest sense, includes everything that is, whether or not it is observable or comprehensible.

Spin = Realty + Legend.

It's going to be extremely difficult to turn things around.They really stuffed up IR reform and the ordinary workers will not tolerate deception in regards to their work place.

Some try to compare politics to the demise of the All Blacks where the clear favourites lost what should have been an easy contest,but this close to an election you don't have the same control as in sport manipulate things to your own advantage.The Coalition should try and limit the damage,so it is not a rout,thus they can be in striking distance when Labor stuff up just like Gough and Placebo Domdingo did.

Q; What chokes faster than Momma Cass on a ham sandwich?
Ans;The All Blacks on frogs legs.
Or was it when Choker Fraser almost tripped on the Joe tripodium.

It pays to advertise and "spend" he does with our money!

A "second grade" solicitor was best achievement!

Never been in any action either on the field or or off. Words or his famous "rhetoric" empty and always could change with the "wind".
Like to think of himself as the "man of steel" closest to got to a "punch" was watching "war" movies and the "dragons" getting belted!

He has used the "fear factor" at all opportunities, he's read about all this stuff but his next fright may be his first. I see him as an extremely "poor" ex"ample" of Australian manhood, a whimp and coward!
