. . . promoting capitalist acts between consenting adults.
1) He is not Nick Smith.2) He is not Tony Ryall.3) He is not Lockwood Smith.and so on.
I feel exactly the same PC.The only other member of the national party who sets a spark for me is Judith Collins. I have met the woman and she has the most incredible presence. One, VERY seldom experiences this from another person.She can certainly hold her own during debate, she is an academic achiever, her capacity for detail and memory are exemplary.
1.He made his money in a real competitive market. Not just talking the talk but walking the walk.2. He is smart enough not to have committed himself to positions he can be caned with before he needs to3. His personal history has an enormous added value and there is a reasonable chance he will take a pragmatic rather than idealistic course to add value for New Zealand
Give him a chance PC, could be great, nice conservative financial dude, who won't spend too much of our money I am sure
Eric - He's also not Don Brash. That's why I can't get excited by him.
Maria...who won't spend too much of our moneyHe can't. He's not in government.
I searched my blog looking for some www.lindsaymitchell.blogspot.com
Perhaps Bob Clarkson can lead very aggressively against Labour. He can pin down all the Labour MPs by grabbing their balls.
"there is a reasonable chance he will take a pragmatic rather than idealistic course to add value for New Zealand"pardon me while I grab a bucket. All I can think of is that he is better than Clark, but then again I'd like someone to lift the bar more than a couple of inches above her.
I am with sagenz - but also I would like to add1. He will have wider appeal that Brash (who I also like but for different reasons)2. He can certainly hold his own with Cullen in a debate - and will also whip (not in a Panty-boy-slut sort of way) clark head to head3. he is intelliegent, has vision for NZ, and is motivated with an ambition to continue to make NZ a better place to live (for all rather than the selected groups labour tries to appeal to)
"...vision for NZ"?Leaving aside your other points for the moment, Peter McK, but could you -- or anyone - articulate what that "vision" is? What I see is "wait-and-see," not "vision."
