Iffy And His Strategist Badly Outwitted Again
Watching the Liberals sad attempts to halt Iffy's slide in the polls has hit the embarrassing stage. After watching Iffy and some dumbfella rail against partisan stimulus spending, today the Conservatives release a list of spending projects in Ontario that shows Opposition ridings have received more stimulus funding than the governing party. Sandy has a great post up after inspiration from a comment left at Joanne's blog by Frmgrl.
I wondered why the PM and his MP's didn't push back more against the partisan spending faux scandal put out by the opposition. Every day we saw the Red Star, Globe and Mail, Tom Clark, Taber, Travers et al, all talking about this being the downfall of the Conservatives and their strong polling numbers. Turns out all of the above may have just been played big time. Voters are about too see the party that cried wolf once too often have to wipe the egg off their faces again. Now that they've beat the story too death for the last week, and given the new facts and figures put out by the government today and which should be hitting all Canadians in the next few days, courtesy of the same marks, one is left to wonder who is the one giving Iffy and the Liberals strategic advice. My guess? Homer Simpson.
