Quote from: Jacob on March 23, 2011, 07:18:32 PMNah, he was an academic in the US for years. You know, he had some career and academic success and went to where the best opportunities were. According to the attack ad, that makes him suspect.

Quote from: Admiral Yi on March 23, 2011, 06:32:29 PMWhat's the basis for the attack ad?
Quote from: Grey Fox on March 23, 2011, 07:17:27 PMHe's the leader of an opposition party, that's what he's suppose to do. If Harper wants to in power, he should bend.
Quote from: Josephus on March 23, 2011, 04:41:55 PMHe wanted ending the federal sales tax on home heating fuels and restoring the home energy retrofit tax incentive, he got only the latter.

It used to be Harper=American=Bad. Now, the Conservatives Strikes Back. Ignatieff=American=Just as bad.It's just like in the US when the Republicans paint the Democrats as being Canadians. The other country is always evil and we should not importe their strange ways in our lands
Quote from: Josephus on March 23, 2011, 07:23:23 PMCC...let's just leave it like this.Say you and I are leaders of political parties. Say you lead party A and I lead Party B. Our parties have very little in common. WE are at opposite ends of the spectrum. I like squares, you like circles. Now you say you are going to table a budget and you want my support. I say, "I doubt that can happen but look, if you throw in A, B and C, maybe I will."But you, instead, only give me B-partially. That's not part of the deal. Yes, as you say, I didn't get everything. Why should I support you? I don't agree with you on anything else, but because you give me B, I should suddenly support you? You want me to support you. Give me what I want and I will.You didn't.Is Layton forcing the election? Depends on your point of view. The cynic in me thinks that the Cons. knew Layton wouldn't go for this (but offered a nice watered down version so that people like you think that Layton was wrong); and they actually want an election themselves, without seeming to want one; believing they stand a chance, not unjustifiably, of winning a majority.That said, i agree with you, the NDP is not going to do well this election. I'm probably not voting for them so I don't care either.
Quote from: dps on March 23, 2011, 07:55:37 PMI don't think I've ever heard Republicans call Democrats Canadians. They used to call them Russkies a lot, but now they also call some of them (OK, really just one of them) Nigerian or Indonesian as well.
Quote from: Barrister on March 23, 2011, 09:04:46 PMBut whatever - it's not like I'm personally afraid of an election. Elections are fun. I just regret my vote will be in Alberta, not somewhere useful like Yukon.
Quote from: Josephus on March 23, 2011, 09:25:30 PMIf you move to Neil's riding you can try prevent the NDP from winning there, BB.

I think he will find himself without a vote.That's not my beef. My beef is that the ad was insipid and that it was everywhere. It was annoying.I don't have a vote anyhow, not a citizen
