    Default Kenny's legacy

    As he approaches the twilight of his leadership after five years at the helm of Fine Gael, how do the Kenny years measure up? His place in history is assured I believe, as the man who made Fianna Fail the inevitable party of government. It is now difficult to see how any government can be put together in the foreseeable future without Fianna Fáil being the lead partner, whether with the Greens or Labour or what is left of the PDs. That impression has been reinforced by the sad performance of Kenny in the wake of Bertie’s resignation announcement. There was also ignominy in the way he slunk from the field of battle following a recent humiliating assault by Cowen. Indeed the negative impact for Fine Gael is even starker when we take Cowen into account. In last weekend's poll, when asked which of Cowen and Enda Kenny would make the best Taoiseach, almost two thirds (63 per cent) plumped for Cowen, while just a quarter (24 per cent) back Kenny. Will the Mayoman be remembered as Fianna Fail's secret weapon par exellence?

    Leave off the Kenny threads, they're spam at this point. He might well not make the next election, he's not the best politician in the world, we know all that. But it's like some weird form of OCD you have, like you can't leave the house before you know you've started yet another thread on Enda Kenny. What's the deal with that?...

    Hey, why doesn't someone start a thread on Enda Kenny I don't think we have ever had one of those.

    And what the last year of 1 Bertie thread being started every hour was different, was it?

    If people want to post about Enda Kenny then let them..... God only knows enough threads have been started over the last year or so about all of the following:

    McDowell and the PDs
    Harney and the PDs
    The PDs
    FF
    Bertie and FF
    Bertie and the Mahon Tribunal
    Bertie & Charlie H
    The FF/Green/PD coalition

    And I heard nobody moaning about the amount of threads on them. Why would that be? Perhaps it is because the FG/anti-FF supporters out number those support the government?

    For the last 6 months there has constantly been about 5 or 6 threads relating to Bertie and the Mahon Tribunal on the first page of latest discussions, so whats the issue with a bit of interest in Enda? Should you not be thankful that he's finally getting some attention?

    So, once the Enda/FG threads start finally flying around people like you start having a good old whinge. Grow up, its a politics discussion site FFS. I know that there is a possibility that he has been so ineffective that you didn't realise, but Enda is actually a politican. And do you know what that means? Yes Mookie, he's fair game for discussion here on p.ie!
    Economic Left/Right: -2.00
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.88

    Some people see things as they are and ask why? I dream things that never were and ask why not?
