Former US Ambassador Paul Celluci Claims Obama Win Means Big Trouble For Canada

According to media reports, Paul Celluci the former republican(that’s the key) appointed US Ambassador to Canada is busy engaging in a little pre-election fear mongering and rhetoric on our side of the border in the hopes of frightening uneducated Canadians into believing a Barack win would endanger trade relations with Canada…as if anyone up here would be able to change the outcome of this election.(or even want to)
Celluci states that ” it’s a little bit of a danger for Canada because if the polls are right, and I hope that they’re not,but if they’re right, we could have Barack Obama as president of the United States with over, maybe 60 United States senators in the Democratic column and a pretty strong majority in the House of Representatives.
You’re going to have basically one-party government in the United States, Mr. Cellucci said in his speech.
Celluci stated that he had concerns for free trade after Obama stated that he would re-negotiate NAFTA during the US primaries.
It’s amazing that these Republicans would take their election show on the road to Canada…Do they actually think that we lowly Canadians might be able to influence the US revolution?
Even if we could influence that election, it wouldn’t make a difference as I feel most Canadians would back the agent of change versus backing the agent of GW Bush.

    Why would Canadians be afraid of Obama? Obama wants to turn the USA into Canada. It’s Americans that should be afraid of Obama.

    I was just reading some more about Obama, it’s now Thursday morning. The more I read, the more I think to myself that the American people have been given a second chance. When I watch him, and listen to him speak. When I read what he has to say, I see a black JFK.. A young man, full of hope for his country at a time when everything seems to be going the wrong way. A young man with heart and desire to see things change. A young man with the courage to stand up and be heard. If teh American people get this one wrong we need to put up razor wire along our border with them… This is their second chance, let’s hope they don’t get it wrong!

    well, here is my take on this. during the last canadian election, and, we all know that harper gets his electioneering and policy from the religious right that support bush/maccain, the cons ran the fear of change rhetoric, now that harpo has been successfull in delaying the change that we need, mccain is running the same stchick, hoping that it will work south of the border. may just happen unless this bright young man can pull the vote.

    “we all know that harper gets his electioneering and policy from the religious right that support bush/maccain,”

    We all know? Is that statement supposed to carry some authority? I’d like to see it backed up with something more than your personal conviction.

    “delaying the change that we need,”

    What change would that be?
