Liberal Surpluses
May 9th, 2012 at 5:11pm
 
If we are guaranteed surpluses under a Liberal Govt can someone please supply a list of Liberal Treasurers since the inception of the party that have provided this country with a surplus.
I can only come up with one.

Was Costello a treasurer or Howard's Eunuch?

I'm PRETTY sure Fraser's treasurer didn't make "the surplus club"
He did manage to CONCEAL it, though, until the Hawke team won the election - and could check out "the books", themselves

It's relevant when Labor is continually rubbished for its Deficits. If you can only name one Liberal Treasurer who delivered surpluses (which were built out of laziness and not good economic management), then that means the Libs are no better at delivering Surpluses then Labor.

Just because the two best treasurers this country has ever seen had surpluses doesnt mean hacks like Swan or Hockey ever will.

Describing Swan as a hack is a little unfair. Granted he hasn't delivered his surplus yet, but he is on track to do so. Hockey on the other hand, still has a budget black hole to fill.

You wont get an argument out of me...this is the worse Labor and Liberal Parties we have had in this country since the dawn of political time.
We can blame Howard for staying on to long and not giving Costello a go for the idiocy we are now putting up with.

Im blaming Howard for taking away my chance to vote for Costello and Im blaming Abbott for taking away my chance to vote for Turnbull.
I certainly will never vote for any party led by Gillard or Abbott.

You vote for a group not for an individual - because its the group that will collectively make or break this country

You can see this very clearly with Rudd as PM then Gillard as PM.

Rudd was a self obsessed ego-manic that the majority of Caucus hates

Gillard can't control her team and is a pathological liar

Both instances they are all about self interest

A change in leadership of a sitting government is always de-stablising.

You may vote Liberal no matter who they put up as leader and others may vote Labor under the same circumstances but I never have and I never will.
