So how long before the left labels him a white supremacist, a bigot, a racist and a nazi for daring to speak his mind?

Conservative leadership candidate Kevin O'Leary took time off from the campaign trail this week to pitch his "exclusive" wines on an American home shopping channel, prompting accusations from at least one rival that he's simply not a serious contender.

O'Leary was featured on an hour-long "today special value" segment of QVC, where he extolled the virtues of his reserve wines, selling some 7,500 cases of red, white and rosé blended wines to U.S. shoppers, while sipping the product alongside the show's two co-hosts.

"I know why they call you Mr. Wonderful now, because you make some wonderful wine," said Mike, a caller to the program. "Keep bringing us the delicious wines, Kevin, we enjoy you on QVC and we enjoy you on Shark Tank," said another caller, Nancy from California. QVC segments are taped from the company's studios in West Chester, Penn.

"Blending wine is half art, half science, and I'm getting better all the time. Whatever I bring forward, I put my name on it, it's going to be amazing, I have your back," O'Leary said while hawking his wares.

O'Leary writes on his website that he created O'Leary Fine Wines "to help give Americans access to amazing wine at an amazing price." ​A three-bottle set of O'Leary's wine was sold by QVC for $43 U.S. with free shipping and handling.

i dunno, he pretty much tows the liberal party line on immigration. Some people who get their news exclusively from huffington post might think hes a racist but I think Leitch gets that label (undeserved) far more than oleary. he really isnt much like Trump. not enough like Trump as far as I'm concerned. As it stands I'm still leaning Bernier but I'm not convinced he can win.

O'Leary appealed for $25,000 in 24 hours the other day, got more of course.

 

On behalf of Team O'Leary and Brad, THANK YOU! We set out to raise $25K yesterday in honour of Brad's birthday and 382 of you helped us reach $39,304 instead. With your support we will win the Conservative Leadership race and beat Justin Trudeau in 2019!

Well I guess it is pretty easy to run a campaign when you are getting a MP's salary and perks and don't have to produce anything.

^ My thoughts too.

None of the MPs are stepping down from their day job to be more "serious" about their campaigns.

O'Leary is vulnerable on his business track record and the fact that he lives in Boston. I think that name recognition and the lack of depth in the party may help him with the Conservative race but he will struggle once the LIberal machine takes over.

 

Trudeau is already starting with the narrative that the economy and workers are suffering because of business people like O'Leary and the corporate elite. His argument is that they are all greedy and keep money to themselves instead of sharing it with workers and paying their fair share of taxes. Not a bad plan if you think about it. Trump was successful arguing the opposite of that so you might as well get out ahead of the message with your own.

Bernie doesn't have nice hair :-) If it had been a straight up contest between Trump and Sanders he likely would have won
