Is There Anyone the Liberals Actually Like?

Over the past three days, the Liberals have managed to insult, oh, nearly half of Canada’s population.

It started on Friday, with the finance ministry’s communications director, John Embury, calling Canada’s Association for the Fifty Plus Associate Executive Director Bill Gleberzon “old and confused” for having stated that he was contacted by Goodale’s office hours before the official income trust announcement. This leaves me asking, hey guys, do you think that all elderly Canadians are “confused”, or just the ones that you told about the income trust decision ahead of time. This was reported by CTV.

And then this morning/afternoon, two senior Liberal strategists opinioned that parents would be more likely to spend the $1,200 (Conservative) direct child care transfers on “beer and popcorn” then on quality child care. First came Scott Reid (Martin’s Communications Director) on CBC, and then Martin’s senior advisor John Duffy backing it up on CTV. This follows Ken Dryden stating that parents taking care of their own children does not constitute “child care”

So, by Liberal logic, seniors = “old and confused”, parents = selfish… I suppose they haven’t insulted parentless 18-49 year olds, or children (except those that own firearms). But, never fear, the campaign is still young.

  • The truth is, I don't think anyone really likes the Liberals. They just dislike the Liberals less than all the other parties. The Liberal campaign strategy pretty much is "The Conservatives are selfish and won't provide you anything, the NDP can't manage a budget, and the Bloc are a waste so vote for us."

  • Just to clarify, personally I don't like a lot of Liberal policies and how they have lied to us for 12 years. I'm not confident in the NDP's ability to balance the budget with all their promised services. I just dislike the Conservatives more because I disagree with their social stand points, military investment, and how the rich will get an even larger advantage than the poor than they already have. But yeah, I really don't consider myself a huge Layton fan and if anything I dislike Martin.

  • Actually NDP is more of a waste. That's one of their major campaign strategies. Bloc would be seperate and your province is going to hell. And conservatives would be "they are evil selfish capitalists who only think of themselves".
