Apps-buttal

As noted below, I agreed with some of Apps’ criticisms – the focus on past glories, for instance, the fratricidal tribalism – but not all of it.

In the link, Jordan fights back, passionately, and attracts an interesting commenter.

My view is Soviet, frankly: samo kritika is never a bad thing. It leads to better self-awareness and, hopefully, remedial action. And redemption.

    I can’t wait for Alfred Apps to to go away – He says things out loud that he should say sometimes in his internal voice. I’m voting for Ron Hartling for President. Go to his website, read and you’ll understand why he has the right stuff.

      If I was attending the convention, I would be voting for Mr. Hartling too……all of the other candidates have either borrowed or agreed with his ideas…..this has to tell you something……

        Problem is neither of us are attending but we both want Mr. Harlting – He is not the ‘bumper sticker’ president with rhetoric and platitudes. His root cause analysis, management sense, strategic planning, analytical analysis is above and beyond any of the other candidates. I fear this will be a popularity contest (i.e Shiella Copps)

        I’ll probably be attending. I’d be more than happy to take a look at Mr. Hartling’s site.

    All I know about Stephen LeDrew is from listening to him on his brief stint on CFRB, but he did not say a single thing I could agree with. If this was the Liberal party I can see where the problem was.

        Ok, for those of us who aren’t um….seasoned (sounds better than “older” than 40) who the hell IS Stephen LeDrew anyway and why should I care? What’s his claim to fame?

      Oh man – LeDrew is worse than Apps. WK should put up a poll and let disgruntled Liberals vote. Would be very interesting to see the results.

    “samo kritika’ is okay, but don’t do it in ‘publika’.

    Passing the buck for the troubles the Liberal Party?

    There’s an Apps for that.
