Jack Layton talks about being a Strong Leader a lot, and of course, a big part of being a Strong Leader is to have a Strong Team. Jack says it best himself:
“Over the last five years, we’ve built a very impressive team of New Democrats.”
-Jack Layton-Sun Sept 8, 2008
“…since 2003, he has been building the strongest possible team”
and so on and so forth. Well, you can have a look at some of the strongest members of Jack's Team at http://www.jacksteam.net/.
The website features such Strong Candidates as the famous Tokin' Twosome of Dana Larsen and Kirk Tousaw, Internet sensation Andrew McKeever, and many others.
Jack himself demonstrated his Strong Leadership last night, by making the Strong move of skipping his own all-candidates debate that had been organized around his timetable. http://www.citynews.ca/news/news_27728.aspx After all, why should a Strong Leader concern himself with piddling matters like being accountable to his own constituents? The Conservatives, who have a Strong Leader of their own, have been skipping debates all over the place, and Jack is only too eager to follow the tactics of the Conservatives, particularly when the polls show them actually on the verge of defeat.
Isn't to re-assuring for the Conservatives that Jack is a Strong Leader with a Strong Team behind him ready to help them get re-elected?
