Prime Minister Gillard told Labor fundraisers that the Coalition are banking on voters having "amnesia" in this months elections.
"They have not come up with a single, solitary, new idea to address the challenges of the Australian people," Gillard said. "They don’t have a single idea that’s different from John Howard’s ideas — not one."
The PM said that instead of helping her and Labor push for healthcare and Education reform, Liberals and Nationals are "betting on amnesia."
"That’s what they’re counting on," Gillard told the audience. "They’re counting on that you all forgot. They think that they can run the okey-doke on you. Bamboozle you."
In her speech, the PM blasted Liberal opposition to her small business tax cuts, saying Liberals are opposing their own ideas in an effort to hurt Labor.
"Liberals say they're the pro-business party, isn’t that what they say?" Gillard said. "You would think this is something they would support, but they keep opposing it. Why? Pure politics."
The PM also criticized Tony Abbott for pledging to repeal the NBN if the Coalition wins back Power.
"They're more interested in the next election than the next generation," Gillard said. "And that's why they can’t have the keys back — because we need somebody who is driving with a vision to the future."
The real article has the real story about Obama and the stonewalling of the Republicans BTW. I haven't had to change much, you might notice.
Would the "real" Julia Gillard pick at the exposed underbelly of the Liberals so easily?
