After watching Ignatieff blowhard his way though another interview in Sunday's Question Period on CTV, one cannot escape the unavoidable conclusion that this man will say anything to seize power. He denies that Liberal attack ads are even attack ads, he maintains that he needs to see the budget before deciding how to vote on it and then says that the government has zero credibility and cannot be trusted economically. The Liberals first announced their intention to bring down the government in December, and have never attempted to negotiate terms whereby they would support the budget (which they did to back the NDP into a corner). Meanwhile Canada has had one of the best economic recoveries in the G20 and has received international praise for our fine performance.
Granted, I understand why he is trying to fabricate a false narrative about poor economic performance, because it is generally seen as Stephen Harper's greatest strength. So long as that continues, the Liberals will continue to sit in opposition. We'll have to see if Iggy keeps saying "56 billion dollar deficit" when Flaherty significantly reduces the deficit this week. All this being said, I hope Iggy Flop keeps doing interviews. I'd even like to see more interviews. It is quite comical to watch him in these situations, where he almost does a satire of himself. The more Canadians see of Iggy, the less they like him.
Keep talking Count Chocula, please, keep talking.
