Well, boo, hoo, hoo!
The problem with Ignatieff
"The problem is Ignatieff is not an easy sell to New Democrats and progressives. He's not only burdened with the business-Liberal image that felled John Turner and Paul Martin, he's also aristocratic and aloof. Ignatieff looks and sounds superior and condescending. And the odour lingers from his writings on torture."
Ekos Research's Paul Adams told CBC Radio's The Current Monday that the Liberals have "conspicuously failed" to capture public anger over the Conservatives' anti-democratic prorogation of Parliament and channel it into creative ideas and policies the party could then take back to Canadians. "Are they just waiting for the Conservatives to fall of their own weight, because if they are, they may be mistaken," Adams warned.
Even with all the frenzy that the LibLuvin Harper Hater Lame Stream Media stirred up over perogygate and all the other gates, they still can't see their team winning anytime soon so they are unhappy with their leader. Can't let those evil Conservatives actually work to do some good things for Canadians and bring back pride in our country again, now can they? But oh, what to do?
Two national columnists have weighed in on Ignatieff's woes. Sun Media's Michael Den Tandt wrote a wry article advising the Liberal leader to "stop talking about yourself" and, in almost every paragraph, to "get a plan."
At the Globe and Mail, Jeffrey Simpson believes the Liberals' "pervasive emotion" is "fear: fear of providing the Conservative attack machine with a target, fear of saying anything controversial lest voters be offended, fear of the polls, fear of negative media."
Fear, he continues, means "courage is banished, convictions are buried and politicians will talk and not say much."
Nor will they win."
Will Mr. Iffy be pushed out and Bob Rae be installed as the new saviour of the Libs? Will the coalition of losers rear it's ugly head once more? They need to do something to get rid of the evil PM Stephen Harper Conservative government and save the country after all. They need to be back in their rightful place again, at the public trough, stealing money from hard working taxpayers, being nice to criminals and terrorists etc.,right? Then all will be well with the world.
