The Liberals doth protest too much

A BCer in Toronto and Far and Wide are both complaining that the Conservatives are being dishonest with the numbers the EI commission is spouting. There is no doubt that these bloggers are correct: the Conservatives on the commission are lying about the cost of the “360” plan. Here’s my problem with Liberal mewling, though: This was entire-fucking-ly predictable. Harper’s government is functionally dishonest, and has been from the start. Harper’s government is also predicated on bullying their way through, even with a minority, by using such dishonest tactics. You know this. Iggy knows this. Layton and Duceppe know this, and have consistantly voted against this government because of it’s track record of bullying and dishonesty. So why in fuck didn’t you vote non-confidence in these bastards when you had the chance? As I’ve said earlier, Iggy is a gamesman sans game.

I think that with this news of the EI commission’s infights, Michael’s score falls back to 12.5%

PS: You’ll never reach 40% without a strong, coherent plan. Whining that the Conservatives are out-strategising and out-bullying you isn’t a strong, coherent plan. Yanking power from their hands, on the other hand, is.

  1. But, but – the Liberals do have a plan – don’t you read Liblogs? They’re going to whine and screech,”Stephen Harper/The Conservatives/The Blogging Tories are Teh Poopyheads!!” Oh, and cover important issues like whether Stephen Harper ate a communion host or not, indeed Warren Kinsella seems to be the chief ‘waferer’ (leave it to Warren to pick an issue even sillier than Obama’s Birth Certificate). Surely, with substance such as this, electoral victory is just around the corner….

  2. Because the Liberals wanted to at least give the Conservatives a chance to behave like people, and do the right thing on a serious issue of national import?

    And then there’s also the fact that not one of the parties wanted an election. Not the Liberals or the Conservatives. Nor the NDP and the BQ.

    Layton was quite clear he didn’t want an election. Of course, as you say, that hasn’t stopped him from consistently voting against the government on confidence matters, such as budgets they haven’t read. He says he doesn’t want an election, but he keeps trying to trigger one, and won’t do anything to avoid one?

    Jack’s strategy has been clear from day one: say he doesn’t want an election but don’t do anything to avoid one, let the Liberals carry the water of trying to make parliament work while doing nothing to help, and then hope for it to fail so he can stand on the sidelines and say Ha Ha!

    When it comes to gamesmanship, Jack is without peer.

  3. Not to the let the facts get in the way of your own self inflated predictive powers, but I was never a fan of this EI panel. Said so from the beginning, but carry on Merlin.

    1. Tell me Steve, if you didn’t think the EI panel would do any good, why vote confidence in this government? “I’m confident they’ll do nothing substanstive.” is not a good answer.

  4. It’s always fun watching Liberals try to deflect blame for their own bad decisions. The point of the post, folks, was that the Liberals should’ve been able to see this disaster coming.

    Instead, the Liberals show up and try to argue that the budget was an extra-special exception to the Conservative pattern of lying about everything. Honestly. Reading the budget was a waste of time. The NDP knews that. The Liberals, after all these years, still haven’t figured it out: these Conservatives lie, about everything, in very obvious ways, and they do it because it works.

    The Liberal Party persists in believing it’s dealing with something other than what it is. It’s bizarre. Get it straight: the Conservatives don’t want to work with anyone. They are choosing not to.

    Jack doesn’t want an election, but he wants terrible public policy even less.
