Or....how to lose media momentum to avoid an election at all cost.


David Akin's impressed

Kady O'malley? Not so much.

Chantal thinks everyone's a winner.

I think this descision lends credence the the "theory" that got put forward in the Raitt-tapes about the financial backers of the LPC dropping the hammer on Ignatieff.

Any political strategist would say that the time for the Liberals to go was now. They had positive momentum in the polls and positive momentum in the press. They probably would have won at least a minority government. And on top of that they would have been able to take credit for an improving economy (even though it would be false credit). And even if the economy didn't improve they would have had a pass because they would get about 2 years out of "it's the Conservatives fault" (that's about how long the Conservatives used "it's the Liberals fault" ya?).

You guys had a big dry barrel of powder, and Ignatieff just tossed it in the Ottawa River. Kinsella must be having an anurism about now.

I wonder how the Iggy camp will spin this because to any real Liberal, he has very little credibility left...

Just go read Spinsella's blog. He's issued the talking points that many of the Liberal bloggers have started to regurgitate.

I think Kinsella is a maggot.... but just this once I'll go over...

Wow, that about confirms that Kinsella jumped the shark eons ago...

I hope it was satire... please to god I hope it is satire....

With all due respect.

My friend Warren is doing what almost all of us war mongers are doing. Sucking it up, putting on a fake smile and puking his guts out inside. And, privately, he's swearing loudly and often.

That's the way us mongers roll.

Please James....
You are telling me it's not satire?


How long do you think the Liberals will have credibility with this kind of weaseling?

I know that Harper and his government is stupidity incarnate, but the Libs are once again moved the goal posts backwards...

James Curran said...

As I said....we're puking are guts out.

After that treatment, I'd suggest that the Liberals work like mad over the summer months to rebuild the party in Quebec.

As you may know, there are municipal elections here coming up. Get close to some of those organizers... you know that the Conservatives are doing it...

And what has your former leader been up to lately? Oh yeah. I think he had a little success with that today.

Jon Pertwee said...

Um, Reid. The Conservatives have been blaming the Liberals for 3 1/2 years and counting. Didn't you read about the Raitt tape? Blame the previous govt?
