Apparently, the US has received a crash course in Tony Abbott's missteps and controversial comments, thanks to TV show  "Last Week Tonight".

I feel your pain.
But we have to live with the nasty piece of work.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.

Er no, that was the treasurer of the previous Liberal Govt.  :w00t:

By the grace of God (or someone?) Costello resigned before Abott made his bid for the Liberal Party Leadership - they are not exactly "mates" either.

There was a time where it looked like our PM might have been Costello and his deputy Abbott.
Then the incumbent PM realised what a parade of dip****s Costello, Abbott and Bishop are, so stayed on as leader.

He cops a lot of flak old dumb dumb does. To be expected seeming as the last Government before him was just dumb and dumber. However, this seems to be the major attack from the media on Tony all the time. Where are the suggestions to better the policies, when are they saying what he is doing wrong? For instance, this very article lists:

Did US viewers see the infamous Winkgate moment? Yes.

And? A very very likely set up ny Rudds cronies. So what? How does that affect what he does to and with Australia and Australians?

A school kid describing how his mum calls the prime minister "Tony Dumb Dumb"? Yes.

So some anonymous person make a derogatory remark, and that's somehow a reflection of his work is it?  How does that affect what he does to and with Australia and Australians? Bit childish really isn't it?

Abbott's comment that he'd probably "feel a bit threatened" by gays? Yes.

Again -  so what? Is anyone actually blind enough to believe he is the only one? I vote no to gay marriage too so what, that's my right as a citizen. How does Tony being completely honest with the people affect what he does in the big chair?  How does that affect what he does to and with Australia and Australians? Should he not be honest and lie so people hear what they want?

His "s*** happens" comment while discussing a Queensland soldier killed in Afghanistan? Yes.

If they want to be picky, they could look at their own spelling. His s*** happens??


But the comment taken out of context, was still not that bad, does anyone say it's inaccurate? He said:

"Jared's death was more likely one of the terrible things that happen in war for which no-one or nothing could necessarily be blamed,"

Is anyone here honestly thinking the PM would make light of a soldiers death? Think about it. The media should be the ones being hung out to dry or that comment - if there was any justice in journalism, we all know there is not.

His "housewives of Australia need to understand as they do the ironing" remark? Yes.

Yes they do I agree, it's life, men get paid better than women and they always have, women in the majority take time off to raise the family. As such household duties tend to end up with the females, not by choice, not by order, it's not disparaging for a woman to help hold a house together, it's something that the larger of majority of us would be lost without, as such, it's a compliment, not an insult. Bra burning feminists need to pull their butch heads in. He said, it's how it works in his house, hell, it works that way in my house and everyone I know too. We would be lost without the women of the world helping us get to work to pay the mortgages.

Viewers even saw a shirtless Abbott on the beach in his budgie smugglers.

And????????

The budgie smuggler lines annoy the heck out me. I have never understood how that affects politics, or what sort of a leader Tony is, it should make him Iron Man if anything. That is the traditional uniform of the Aussi Lifesaver. Like it or not. Those wee lycra coverings might not cover up much, but that ugly sight means lives have been saved, and it seems Tony is a strong supporter of those saving Australians. Now I don't know an attractive bloke from my armpit - not my thing - but he seems pretty fit? How many obese bastads are putting crap on someone who is fit and running the country from their armchair with a chocolate milk in one hand and a Krispy Kreme in the other?  How does that affect what he does to and with Australia and Australians?

Abbott was described on the show as a "hard-line right wing prime minister" who "rose to power promising to be pro-business and religiously anti-immigration".

What's wrong with pro business???? FFS this is what the country actually needs isn't it?? Jobs, and all that sort of thing?

Australia the Multicultural country - do you realise how many people are against immigration? I don't know if it has anything to do with the recalcitrants who arrive here, demand the dole and burn down the accommodation they have been given, which they seem to be insulted by when coming here from a war torn hell, but that's the impression I get. I know as well as every other person in the country that genuine refugee cases exist, the bad eggs are just so many these days that one cannot help but employ caution. That's just natural, it does not mean Australia is full of racist rednecks. Most if the world is still on edge with terrorist actions hitting as hard as they have in modern times. It's barbaric and scary, so people are scared. That's nothing to blame on Tony either.

The show then noted Abbott was born in England.

Where was Obama born? Hawaii is a state grated, it's not in the US, but Australia is part of the Commonwealth.   How does that affect what he does to and with Australia and Australians?

"What is it about Tony Dumb Dumb that has led to his current approval rating of 30 per cent?" the show asked its viewers.

It didn't ask the ones who would have answer, and it's a US show, so they don't ask Aussies who vote? I bet those idiots don't even know voting in Australia is mandatory. I mean, real academic geniuses aren't they - saying such intelligent things like:

"Did you know there are other countries that are not America and each of them has a leader of its very own?"

If one has to ask that question, I don't think one has the right to bag Tony. Stupid TV show hosts. <_<



If you want to see Tony bagged fair and square, I recommend The Roast on ABC.

  • The careful application of terror is also a form of communication.

Posted 29 June 2014 - 03:17 AM

Tony Abbotts public persona is perhaps not what a lot of people would like, but it's a fact of life that we're all different.

And speaking of public persona, Gillards harping voice grated on my nerves, while Rudds self important superiority simply indicated how inadequate he really was.

Given the choice between Abbott, Gillard and Rudd, I'll take Tony every day of the week.

Personally, I don't care that he occasionally fumbles his words (Pres. Reagan did the same thing), what I care about is that his policies will get Australia out of the financial pit dug by Gillard and Rudd.

There is absolutely no proof at all that human beings actually communicate.

I'd rather not have a PM who has meetings with foreign leaders while wearing an ear-wig and concealed microphone or who builds a climate of fear about refugees.

I am not sure what incident you refer to with the microphone, but it was back in the early 1990s when refugee policy began to shift. Paul Keating’s Labor Government introduced a policy of indefinite mandatory detention in response to a modest increase in asylum seekers entering Australia by boat. It was only back in '73 we moved away from a white Australia Policy. Immigration has always, and will always be, a touchy subject but it's not a new thing at all.

Tony has a little wig for his ears now? Must be cold in Canberra this year huh.
