I have always thought people rise to their level of incompetence. With that in mind, I am comfortable in believing neither Jason Kenney nor Andrew Scheer will become prime minister.
They have risen to their level of incompetence. They are basically single issue persons who cannot accept Canadians have moved on.
Premier Kenney is an oil and gas public relations guy, and Opposition Leader Scheer is a strong social conservative public relations guy.
Kenney believes taking money from everyone else to throw at the oil and gas industry is the answer.
Unfortunately, in the 32 weeks he has been in government, Alberta has lost nearly 32,000 jobs.
That is not deterring him. Getting booed at a sporting event in Calgary recently is not deterring him.
Scheer lost the federal election when he should have won against the much-damaged Liberal party. His strong social conservative views were instrumental in propelling him to becoming the leader of a federal party, but were his downfall in the federal election.
He refused to accept the new norms in society.
If these two people want to get to the penthouse of federal politics, they need to change elevators. No matter how many times they hit the up button, the elevators they are on will not take them to the penthouse, just to their level of incompetence.
