Video: 3 dumb things Kevin O'Leary said about the Alberta election

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      He's one of the biggest blowhards on television.

      And Kevin O'Leary didn't let us down with his comments on the recent Alberta election.

      As the video by Press Progress shows below, he still has it in for unions, calling them "sheer evil".

      According to His Highness, those nasty union-loving workers from the Martimes are responsible for bringing down Jim Prentice, turning Alberta into a "socialist bog".

      Get this. He also thinks the new Alberta government wants to engage in class warfare and throw all the entrepreneurs out of the province.

      You got to hand it to Kev. He's still the reigning king of hyperbole.

      The biggest blowhard on television? That is too kind. He is undoubtedly the most stupid person on television.

      Kevin Oleary tells it like he sees it. Most Tv personalities sugarcoat everything so as not to offend, they forget to be honest. He said a couple years back. People listen to business shows to get investment ideas and they deserve honesty.
      People want pundits to be politically correct. Its refreshing to hear someone speak his mind.
      OLeary surrounds himself 24/7 with the most talented intelligent investment gurus, his opinions are summed up by the company he keeps. He didn't get filthy rich by being wrong

      If you read up on his costars from Dragon's Den, even his peers in business think he's an asshole.

      Ever notice how when he makes an offer to a presenter, the other "dragons" just about stand up and wave their arms while mouthing "NO, don't do it"?

      It will be good for Alberta...

      Every so often it is necessary to clean house and it's probably a good thing. Voters get to the point where they need to punish the government and so they vote them out by voting a choice they might not normally make. So.. they voted NDP. NDP will probably try doing the anti corporate stuff they always do, and some of that might be beneficial but in the longer term, people will get tired of the unemployment and vote them out.

      Kevin O'Leary. The Donald Trump of Canada.

      In other words, a complete embarrassment, a person devoid of any wit, insight, perspective, or humanity.

      Not to mention, Kevin O'Leary is a buffoon.

      You can't equate unemployment rates with the NDP. There is a history of lower unemployment and better budgets with the NDP than any other government type. The Notley plan indicated she wants to initiate refinery development... that's jobs. The idea that taxation on multi-billion dollar corporations will somehow kill jobs is also false. Giving them breaks never produced a new job ever. Giving them free trade agreements and huge tax breaks freed them to go build manufacturing jobs in the third world.

      Here's a guy whose mouth is as big as his wealth. The problem is that he does not have the brains to match either. Why anyone would pay attention to anything he says is a mystery.

      Sounds a lot like tea party trash. Seems the conservatives really are republican moles. Hang on Canada we are being invaded from within.

      Is this a Conservative election propaganda preview?

      Your a bunch of crackpots. Alberta is blessed with the freest economy in N.A. With you baffons at the wheel, Alberta would have been down to about where Nova Scotia, Quebec, and P.E.I are on the list. It was really the WRP that took down the PC party, and it will be the WRP, that takes down the NDP. Kevin O'Leary doesn't care what you think about him, nor do other investors. If they hold back their money from Alberta, they will do so for objective reasons.
