The Charge of the Iggy Brigade
Damn. I can't believe somebody beat me to this one.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die...
But I guess it was OBVIOUS. And I only hope it can restrain the Iggy Brigade from charging madly up the hill into the mouths of those Con Cannons...and end up giving Stephen Harper a majority he can use to destroy this country.
Because let's not kid ourselves that's what could happen if we go now. Ignatieff's decision to oppose every Con bill no matter what's in it ....instead of picking his spot.... is bad politics and needlessly reckless.
The timing sucks.The message is falling flat.
The polls are horrible.
Stephen Harper is viewed as twice as trustworthy as Michael Ignatieff (31 to 14) and a third more competent (36 to 20) and more future-Canada-visionary (32 to 20), which gives him a final Nanodex score of 99 to just 54 for Ignatieff, and 40 for Jack Layton.
just 35% of Liberal voters picked Ignatieff as “most trustworthy,” with 15% choosing Harper and 13% who like the cut of that Layton jib. Compare that to the 71% of Conservatives, 64% of Bloc supporters and 45% of New Democrats who back their respective party leaders on the trust question.
And Stephen Harper is holding all the cards right now, hosing the country with our tax dollars. And just waiting to trigger an election and blame the other parties ......so he can make the argument he NEEDS a majority.
Their secret agenda, then, is electoral not ideological. The key to winning any fall election is to pretend they don't want it.
Exactly. Which is why I think the Liberals should just cool their jets. Thank the Bloc for giving them a bit more time to prepare and sell their message.
Concentrate on firing their cannons at targets like this one.
As detailed yesterday, Gerard Kennedy, the party's infrastructure critic, has unearthed statistics that suggest the bulk of the stimulus money is - sharp intake of breath - finding its way to Conservative ridings.
Softening up the Cons....instead of madly attacking the NDP
When we face a common threat, share common values, and Canada is in mortal danger .
You know nobody but NOBODY wants Stephen Harper gone as much as I do. And if Ignatieff manages to save Canada...instead of torching it on the bonfire of his vanity...I'll be really really happy.
But the road to hell is paved with good intentions. There are many ways to lose a country eh?
And stoopidity shouldn't be one of them....
