Mr. Ziffy's Magical Bus Tour

Well two weeks into the Mr. Ziffy's magical bus tour making him into something he's not so he can connect with the regular lowly Joe and Mary sixpack is turning out to be not so magical as stated by the Sun's editorial board with David McGuinty griping about the Sun's reporting on the cabal.
McGuinty can mix apples and oranges all he wants -- prisons and schools, like corporate tax cuts and home care, do not belong in the same sentence -- but don't try to pass this nonsense off as if Ignatieff has answers.
He's making it up on the fly. There's no substance.
This six-week dupe show is all about Ignatieff's image being in the tank, and the Liberal Party plummeting in the polls.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Ask any journalist on the bus.
It seems like turnout for Mr. Ziffy's appearances are not that empressive either.  There is no Ziffymania and it's mainly Liberal friendly events he's attending.    Failed Lib Leader John Turner got bigger turnout and he was  a disaster as a  leader.  Even  Lib supporters aren't exactly getting excited about this man. 
 Former Perth-Wellington Liberal Riding Association president Adam Mair was disappointed by yesterday's turnout to a potential prime minister of Canada, however.
"I'm comparing to the same site when John Turner rolled in here, the very same spot and it was wall to wall to city hall with people," he said.
Meanwhile Liberal party president Alf Apps is still not  a happy camper telling Libs to take a valium and still blaming the media for his dear leader and his party tanking. As Paul Wells so aptly puts it:
 But Maclean's columnist Paul Wells, who has written about the media's treatment of the Liberal Party in the past, said that while Ottawa journalists are prone to "group think," the prevailing opinion that Mr. Ignatieff is politically inept did not develop out of nowhere.
But then goes on later to state that overall Mr. Ziffy has been getting positive press.
Mr. Wells also noted that the national coverage of the "Liberal Express" bus tour, in which Mr. Ignatieff is travelling around the country meeting with supporters, has been largely favourable.
Mr. Apps needs to look in the mirror it's his leader and his party and about what they do or do not stand for and their extremely partisan tactics.  Maybe it is he who should take the Valium.
His leader is an elite, arrogant, condesending and a flip flopper and just can't relate to us regular people. He is not PM material.
On the other hand PM Stephen Harper is a regular middle class Canadian who knows what it's like to work hard, and pay the bills.  That's why he can relate to many of us. Liberals just don't get it!

  1. Does Iggy know that "schools" are a PROVINCIAL responsibility ?

    If he would spend some time reading the BNA Act-- section 91 (federal) and 92 (provincial)responsibilites--instead of TEN DAYS re-reading "War and Peace" with his wife, then he wouldn't expose his ignorance.

    The mediocre, pathetic, lazy, "media" on the bus deserve nothing but scorn, for their unwillingness to challenge Iggy, on such a simple, obvious, embarassing mistake.

    You're exactly right. The media is a disgrace. Can't wait for SunTVnews!

  3. I wonder if Ignatieff sent his own children to Canadian Universities. From what I can tell ... probably not. This guy seems a fake and all he does is attack Harper while saying that he's about doing politics a different way. What does he think we are? Dummies?

    Did he not go the UK a few weeks ago for his daughters grad? I could be mistaken but I thought she was attending a university in the UK. I don't know about his son though.

  5. Heh, now Iffy has to make a decision on a Federal issue!

    Notice how Iffy hides behind 'we will reverse the policy', tho we all know from Chretiens kill the GST days, they never do.

    Well, the final sign on the dotted line for the F35s isn't until 2013,
    so Iffy has to be very clear NOW what his intentions are, and then try to convince Quebecers that the loss of $6 Billion in contracts won't hurt one little bit!
