  • Yankee-Doodle-Dandy: Andrew Scheer is Also An American!

    This deserves its own thread.


    Despite becoming the CON Leader in May of 2017 it must have slipped his mind not to put this on his Resume and only get around to taking steps to renounce his American citizenship in August 2019....

    I personally have no problem with dual citizenship when it is obvious that an aspiring political leader's primary connection and loyalty is to Canada.

    But Harper and the Cons attacked Thomas Muclair and Stephane Dion for their supposed split loyalties because they were dual citizens, and attacked Michael Ignatieff for having lived outside Canada most of his adult life. And Scheer himself questioned Michaelle Jean's fitness to be Governor General because she was a dual citizen before being sworn in. See here: https://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/sch...ship-1.5307986

    It is Scheer's hypocrisy not his dual citizenship that is the issue.

        I wonder if Andrew Scheer will be in a Skip-the-Dishes commercial.

            I didn't think it was possible to find a bigger hypocrite than Trudeau. Congrats cons, this guy takes the cake.

            DEPLORABLE that Scheer spent years castigating other politicians with dual citizenship and then gets caught red handed as a closet American.

            You just can't make this stuff up.

            Do political parties work hard at propping up the most heinous leaders?

            It seems the only people in politics that advance through to become leaders of their parties are certified aholes. The process seems to even select for the most despicable dishonest individuals.

              Are your facts correct? Did Scheer spend “years castigating other politicians with dual citizenship“?

                You can blame the selection process at leadership campaigns. What happens is the supporters for the top two candidates despise their rival, then the third placed candidate wins by coming up the middle. Ask Allison Redford.

                  And when the best candidates decide that the net election is too soon for the governing party to screw up so they don't run.

                    Yes, unless the OP cited article is a house of lies.. If those instances occurred Scheer was certainly hypocritical about it as well as highly disingenuous and dishonest. I can't vote for the man.

                      Quick Questions


                      I have a few quick questions for anyone who thinks that Michaelle Jean is a good choice to be our next GG.

                      1) What are her qualifications? What experience does she have that would assist her to carry out her duties as our head of state, including the potential to be a referee in a minority government situation?

                      2) Does it bother you that she is a dual citizen (France and Canada)? Would it bother you if instead of French citizenship, she held U.S. citizenship?

                      3) It is being reported that her husband is quite chummy with some FLQers belonging to the same group that killed Pierre Laporte. If her husband was quite friendly with Al-Queda terrorists, would that be alright?

                          That was three elections ago and all completely irrelevant today.

                            If hypocritical 2005 comments from the then-elected-MP-now-leader of the Conservative Party are off limits, surely older hypocritical yearbook photos are past the same statute of limitations...
