Conservatives Asleep At the Wheel

What? No attack ads? Seems damn near incredible, wouldn't you say?

Do you think possibly GG made a condition as a part of the prorogation - no attacks ads?

It just seems so strange.

Or, were they saving them for later for Rae, Ignatieff and LeBlanc - whoever ended up leader?

My feeling is they are walzing with Iggy and baiting him with love. Then, after Iggy kills the coalition and supports the budget, they will unleash the hounds with a flurry only a bumble could survive - to use a Rudolph moment.

They sent out a fundraiser email attacking the coalition and Ignatieff.

You can't blame them for being slow out of the gate. Ignatieff's books are filled with big words. Someone at Conservative HQ probably had to run out and grab a dictionary.

RuralSandi said...

Harper is claiming to reach out to the Liberals and other opposition parties.

I think they should demand a meeting "together" - not one at a time.

If Harper refuses, then we know he's lying. Well, we know he does anyway.

James, you want to keep attacking - and it does no one any good.

The coalition thing is NOT selling in general.

I have to be honest here - I don't know how I feel about it. If it isn't selling to the general public at could destroy all the opposition parties.

Well, the title of your blog is certainly accurate, and helpful in answering this question.

The answer, of course, is that Mr. Ignatieff hasn't been appointed or confirmed as anything, yet. He is merely the remaining candidate. So it would be rather presumptuous of anyone to attack (or even fawn over) this new Liberal leader who isn't.

There, quite easy, isn't it?

..and if Harper has any political intelligence, he'll see the gains the Conservatives have made from the coalition.. and he'll take the high road and seek a more cooperative tone for now in producing his budget.. and then, unfortunately, he'll beat the crap out of the coalition 'dead horse' when the next election comes along.. and it will probably work..
