If a lot of these critics spent more time doing something constructive, instead of whining and moaning all the time like children who didn't get their way, our province might actually get somewhere.
The way everyone's attacking Danny, you'd think we were living in Pakistan. I think people here are quite spoiled and childish when it comes to demonizing our leaders. In Danny's case, I think a lot of the critics are obviously jealous of Danny's success and intelligence. They need to grow up and smarten up.
And "get on the bandwagon", maybe?
Mr. Ryan thinks that people are quite spoiled and childish when it comes to demonizing leaders. And he's probably right. Just consider what Wallace Ryan, anti-demonization activist, wrote on November 20, 2007, at 1:42 PM:
My advice to Yvonne [Jones] is to avoid the style of "leadership" of Grimes and Reid. Be constructive and don't shoot off your mouth just for the sake of hearing yourself. Reid was a very poor leader and the polls reflect what the Newfoundland and Labrador people think of this hysterical opposition.and, on March 30, 2007 at 7:35 PM:
Any one calling themselves a proud Newfoundlander and then attacking Danny for his defense of the realm, are just plain lying or astoundingly deluded as to their allegiance to our nation. Plain and simple, Harper has lied to Newfoundland and Labrador and we will not stand for this monumental dishonesty. If Harper had never intended to keep his promise, then he made a fatal mistake in making one to Premier Williams. Unlike most of Canada, when a promise is made in Newfoundland and Labrador, it is honoured. Mr. Williams is an honest, hard working man and all Newfoundlanders and Labradorians will flock to his defense to honour all he has done for us. To think otherwise is treasonous to most of those who live in our beautiful land.
