Here are some examples of how shrill the Liberals are going to get:
Ricky for a Centrist Canada from Canada writes:
Why does the government, when there is no election in sight, find the need to directly attack the leader of the official opposition?
Painting Dion and the LPC as commie tax-and-spenders is ridiculous - just as ridiculous as painting Harper's Cons as wanting to see the planet die.
So why are these ads - directly attacking a sitting MP, party leader, and leader of the official opposition - necessary?
I fail to recall another government in Canada's history that spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on politically attacking a member of the House in this way.
Is this the PM we want with a majority?
Oh, but it's okay to attack the Prime Minister of Canada on the Cadman affair, he's fair game, but poor little Dion should not be attacked with his own policy? And no, the GOVERNMENT is not paying for the ads, Conservative supporters of the Conservative party are paying for the ads.
Barry Johnstone from Canada writes: Who cares? The only thing the attack adds do is give us insight into the spiteful nature of Stephen Harper. I would vote for a baboon before I would vote for Harper!
That's the level of intelligence we get from lefties. What about the level of intelligence we get from the Globe? This comment says it all:
Dave Snow from Calgary, Canada writes: Isn't the Canadian Press supposed to engage in"objective journalism"?
"Sneering radio ads."
"Even though they haven't seen the blueprint."
"Just the latest media salvo from the cash-flush Tories."
"Snidely portray Mr. Dion's environmental program as a trick."
"Even though Mr. Dion has explicitly said his carbon tax won't apply to the retail price of gasoline."
This reads like an op-ed in a Liberal-friendly newspaper, not an objective fact briefing. Deplorable as the attack ads may be, they should be panned by columnists and editorials - not by the Canadian Press.
And people wonder why conservative-minded Canadians consistently accuse the media of left-wing bias?
Couldn't agree more.
When you go to the willyoubetricked site, take the quiz, it's under the header of "Will you be taxed". I took the quiz and scored 10 out of 10! Nice! That means I get taxed on everything.
Will this ad campaign be successful? At a time of raising gas prices, the high dollar, and auto layoffs, you bet it will. It will hit the average Canadian right in the gut. Just wait and see what happens when the carbon tax hits BC in July! It's not going to be pretty, especially for people on pensions.
