I would like to know how much money in total the Liberal party has spent on these frequent little cross country tours Iggy has been doing for little to no benefit. His personal numbers remain abysmal despite the repeated parading around our country like a high profile tourist. Look, just because you stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night, that does not mean you are qualified to run the country! They should turn this so-called Liberal express into a National Lampoon's movie with Paulie Shore playing Ignatieff. Iggy is about as likable as Paulie. If elected Prime Minister, Ignatieff has already announced his declaration that he would like in a hotel. Does anyone know if he sold his residence in Boston?
I watch the Liberals burning through cash on such futile ventures and I reminded of the term in economics of "sunk cost" or "a cost already incurred that is not able to be affected by subsequent actions and thus has no relevance in evaluating future decisions". It refers to businesses who make the mistake of continuing a project because of the money already spent. Sometimes organizations or even people will justify future spending on a worthless venture because of what they have already spent. When in reality, you have to look forward at future expected value against future costs. Live in the now, see that it isn't working, is not going to work, and cut ties. The money the Liberals have spent trying to get people to like an inherently unlikable man is a sunk cost. You can't recover it, and the asset (or liability) is never going to provide any significant return on their investment.
PS: I had originally written "terminate the project" in the above paragraph but changed it to "cut ties" because I did not want anyone to get the wrong idea...we're supposed to be civil right?
