I’ve said it many times before – the ALP’s only possible plan is to attack Abbott as they certainly can’t campaign on their achievements.
“They’re young, feisty,” replied Abbott. Starting to grin, he added: “I think I can probably say they have a bit of sex appeal and they’re just very connected with the local area.
….and the ALP and media go into hyperdrive. Rudd, who abused a RAAF flight attendant to the point of tears, thinks its terrible that Abbott should compliment a woman in a light hearted manner and Latham, ever the bombshell, says Abbott must have had his beer goggles on.
Penny Wong says;
Tony Abbott’s “sex appeal” gaffe gives a glimpse into the opposition leader’s views on women.
Other than the use of the word ‘gaffe’ I tend to agree with Penny. Like the majority of Australian’s, Abbott appreciates beauty and brains and isn’t afraid to pay compliments where due. If the ALP and the media think that is a ‘gaffe’ and Australian’s will think poorly of Abbott then they are mistaken.
Now, back to the question. How are you going to fix the $30 billion defecit.
