Cornwall ON – Boy Mr. Harper loves a good fight and he’s a scrapper like Mr. Chretien there, on the left, only he’s not as smart as the man from Shawinigan. I’d love to play poker with the man one night.
For months now Mr. Harper’s team have been pushing Mr. Layton and the NDP. Not because they secretly know that they’re far to the right and their policies are crap.
No I’m thinking their reasoning is all about power and how to keep what they have and fight for their elusive majority.
The problem is that Canadians are smarter than that, and sometimes strategies can bite you on the bum.
Mr. Layton is a great Canadian politician and for some reason Michael Ignatieff is showing that he really isn’t. Maybe he’s playing rope a dope and holding on for Mr. Harper to run out of steam politically or maybe he’s simply a dope?
In the meanwhile Mr. Layton and his team are making hay and inroads to what will probably be their biggest election turn out in history in the next Federal election.
Our numbers show that if things don’t change they probably will have more seats than the Liberals so maybe that Norman Spector piece isn’t so far from the truth?
According to the results published in Monday’s edition of La Presse, the Conservatives led by Stephen Harper would defeat a coalition led by Michael Ignatieff 40-34 per cent.
With Bob Rae as Liberal leader, the coalition and Conservatives would be tied.
However, if the coalition were to propose Jack Layton as prime minister, according to the Reid poll, it could defeat the Conservatives by 43-37 per cent.
Don’t you just love Canadian politics? So as the shovels of dirt cover the political career of Michel Ignatieff where will the buzz move to? Other than Frank McKenna and maybe Bob Rae is there any candidate that could beat Mr. Harper and turn the tide? Do the Liberals even have the money for a leadership campaign?
