I took a break from Sunday football to watch Craig Oliver interview Iggy, the day before Parliament is set to resume. For the majority of his answers on matters of economics, he tried to take both sides of the issues. He complains about the deficit and often repeats that he "had nothing to do with it"; where he seems to forget that his first act as unelected Liberal leader in January of 2009 was demanding a stimulus. He says that we can't afford a second stimulus, but that we need to maintain the current stimulus spending. His answer on Arenagate was almost comical. He took every side of the debate without actually taking a policy position.
I also couldn't help but notice how often he sticks his tongue out of his mouth when he speaks. It would be amusing to assemble some freeze frame photos of Iggy in various moments of him sticking out his tongue. Oliver did ask him tougher questions than did Mansbridge. When asked to respond to criticism that he should have promoted more women in his most recent cabinet shuffle, Iggy pointed out that the deputy house leader is a very important job.
