So, do we bail on the Liberals?
Holy Jack Layton! has surged in the polls and as of today has cut the conservative lead to 6 points.
Of course, Canadians are notorious for feeling NDP, but voting red. (We are, afterall, a practical people.) But let us dare to dream people. What a time to live in Riverdale. In the land where our MP would be king!
It’s pretty apparent that the Liberals are dead in the water – after their first day announcement to help university/college students – they have shown us no idea what they would do in power that could actually differentiate them from the Conservatives. Do they actually have a position on anything?
For the past two weeks Iggy has been doing nothing more than saying “don’t vote for the other guys”. What a party position! What a vision!
At least Jack has been willing to use words like “economy”, “debt”, “environment”, “poverty”. And he says them in public too.
When’s the last time we heard Iggy use any of them?
So, it’s rallying time lefties. Bay Street and Corporate Canada are rattling their sabers at the NDP (“the economy will collapse under the NDPs – be afraid, be very afraid”) . The Globe and Mail endorsed Harper (“He’s pragmatic”. – what an endorsement!)
Imagine! The NDP as the official opposition in another minority Harper government. Holy Jack Layton!!
