I find Tony Abbott to be one of the most uninspiring leaders ever to take the leadership mantle of a major party in Australia. His recent attempt to divide the Australian community over the flood levy issue gives us a pretty good idea of how this man would rule the roost if given the opportunity. Bore, rant, lecture, divide & conquer. Go cheap.
I foresee a Prime Minister Abbott delivering unpalatable policy announcements in a dull as dishwater monotone voice …or acting the concerned citizen bathed in angelic light like a cornball star in some hokey American family drama…
or barking in parliament imitating a rabid dog as he criticises any opponents leaving no “hyperbole stone” unturned in order to get the attention he seeks…and bully his bills though…
even standing frozen in the limelight, mouth open & closing like a fish outa water…tongue suddenly springing forth to wipe nervous lips, alien in ‘V’ style…as the media pack turns on him due to a slip of the tongue…Umming and Ahhing until the cows come home…or some advisor, perhaps the devilish one that is perched on his shoulder, comes up with some snide joke he can use in a pathetic attempt to divert attention from the original topic.
Add the cheesy action man role when showing off his talents to the overseas troops…one moment baring teeth & ferociously pulling machine gun trigger like a character lost to insanity as he attempts to mow down those pesky Predators…the next standing around like a studio extra waiting for the doughnuts to arrive. In Abbott’s case, the cameras.
It’s CRAP to climate change science

Tony Abbott’s as inspiring to me as an evangelical preacher who tells you that wearing a ring & attending a Christian rock concert is more fun than having sex. Yea RIGHT.
