I have watched Question Period a few times lately during my lunch hour. I have read the G&M online, and luckily I have never seen a Toronto Star in Alberta. So, what's going on with the Liberals?
They don't seem to understand that trying to attack the Conservatives by making up scandals is not working. Since they have been back, they have done nothing but attack on false/phoney/imagined Conservative wrong doings.
1. Elections Canada being sued by Conservative party - the Liberals finally comment outside the House, and Conservative members threaten to sue for libel. Then one of their own members gets into hot water about his cash payments (brown bags folks!) during the last election. Silence on this issue now.
2. Mulroney, Liberals calling for an investigation. Didn't Mulroney win 2 million last time the Liberals tried this one? Careful where you go with this Liberals, the RCMP are still investigating Adscam. No-one cares about Mulroney anymore. Push the Conservatives enough and they might forget about the Parliamentary Protocol that says you do not go after former PM's. I think Chretien would be a big target.
3. Afghanistan and detainees, good one Liberals, make sure Denis Coderre doesn't march in the next Hezbollah march and you might have some credibility.
4. Send murderers home to Canada because they might face the death penalty in a democratic country. Then they can advocate to get them released into society because Canada is a freedom loving country, and criminals are more important than victims. This one will go over really well with the "guns should be banned" crowd!
Liberals are just being liberal. They think because they are immoral, the Conservatives must be too. Brown bags, 40 million missing, no big deal, they crow about how not one MP has been convicted of any wrong doing. Have they ever apologized for taking 40 million of taxpayers money? Nope, they think it's no big deal. BUT let the Conservatives dismiss two potential candidates, IT'S HEADLINE NEWS, thanks to the MSM.
A sitting Liberal MP is accused of breaking Elections Canada rules and Liberals think they are principled because they kicked the guy out of the Liberal party? Right, once it made the papers they kick the guy out, even though they knew about his problems a long time ago. BUT let the Conservatives do not support Casey for re-election because he voted against the Conservatives on a confidence vote, that is way worse! Are you starting to get the picture?
Liberals being Liberal, means they can lack all the morals they want, but Conservatives had better watch every word, they MUST be squeaky clean, because the Liberals would love to bring them down into the swamp they live in.
No wonder PM Harper won't give the press an inch. I wouldn't either.
