Rudd or Abbott for prime minister? That is the question on everybody’s lips. If you listen to the media you will get the impression that it’s all a huge popularity contest. But it is so much more than that. It’s a question of whether Australia can survive another three years under Labor’s rule.
Something else to keep in mind is if the people vote Rudd in will they actually get Rudd? After all we voted him in last time and the Labor cohorts, without consulting the Australian public mind you, knifed him in the back and put Julia Gillard in. Julia won the election for them as planned but once the euphoria of having Australia’s first female Prime Minister died down so did Julia’s popularity. This was helped by her lies and her ineptness at running the country.
Once again the Labor cohorts saw that they were going to lose the next election if they didn’t do something drastic and so Julia was dumped and Rudd once again took the reins. The man who was disliked so much by his own party that they ridiculed him in public was once again put at the helm because of his popularity. The mind boggles at his popularity when you consider he took an economy which was in the black and is now billions of dollars in debt.
Rudd Or Abbott Popularity Contest
So, why is Rudd so popular?
It’s because he appeals to the masses. Personally I don’t know why. Perhaps its because he tries so hard to appear to be like everyone else. Like the time he tweeted and posted on Instagram his shaving mishap. Honestly, do we need such immaturity running the country?
He’s everywhere, patting people on the head and being everything that Abbott is not. That is Abbott’s main downfall, the fact that he just isn’t as popular as Rudd, even the regurgitated Kevin Rudd that we have now. Unfortunately for Tony he says things that he believes in but in such a way that media and the Labor minions can twist to their own benefit.
For ages, with the help of Gillard they tried to label him as a misogynist. A totally false statement but one that they hoped would stick so that they would gain female votes. For the life of me I don’t know why people dislike the man so much.
As far as I’m concerned this election should not be about a popularity contest at all. It should be about which party we want to lead us. Do we want another 3 years of Labor, one that will put us further into debt regardless of Rudd’s promises. Or do we vote the Liberals in, a party that has a better and proven economical tract record?
