Michael Ignatieff Lost Opportunity

Lesley Gore had in hit in 1963 "It's my Party" , it was one of 200 demos Quincy Jones had brought to the studio.

Theme
The song's chorus, "It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to... You would cry too if it happened to you," became a part of American pop cultural language as a phrase used to describe being utterly humiliated and miserable during an event that is supposed to be a happy occasion.

Michael Ignatieff had become leader in December 2008 where are his ideas and policies?

Michael Ignatieff may not as prolific as Quincy Jones in producing hits but why have the Liberals been unable to produce a single policy in Parliament that has support of a majority of MP's?

The Liberal Party Ignatieff, who had repeatedly attacked Prime Minister Stephen Harper for proroguing Parliament in January, is now holding meetings in cities across Canada, even though Parliament is now in session.

It's my Party?
Nobody knows where my Johnny Michael Ignatieff has gone
Judy Jack's support left the same time
Why was he off on another night out with the boys in Montreal?
When he's supposed to be back to work in parliament.
It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you.
Playin' my records, keep dancin' all night
Leave me alone for a while
'Till Michael's dancin' with me
I've got no reason to smile
It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you.
Jack and Michael just walked through the door
Like a socialist with his Czar.
Oh what a birthday surprise
Jack's wearin' his ring
It's my party, and I'll cry if I want to
Cry if I want to, cry if I want to
You would cry too if it happened to you.

As young voters perceive how far Ignatieff has moved to the far left they will reject the big time tax, spend and regulate Liberal leader who plans to raise taxes, massively increase spending, and thereby amplify our debt and, through generational theft, inflict it onto our children.

An example of the parties move to the left is its plan to implement their $5-6-7 (?) billion a year universal entitlement Child Care Program .Ignatieff has also indicated that his party would likely increase the GST tax by 2 points. A third example is his plan to inflict a Cap, Tax & Trade “Ponzi style” system on us which would increase taxes, increase the cost of everything we buy, and would slaughter millions of jobs. It would also transferred wealth from wealth producing provinces to other provinces/countries. .

If Ignatieff was a fiscally responsible party leader he would advocate:

Slashing wasteful, profligate, and peripheral billions of tax dollars.

Denouncing the Cap, Tax and Trade farce for the job killing and wealth transferring con job that it is;

Decreasing provincial transfers;

Inviting the private sector to supply more of the very expensive but peripheral health care services;

Eliminating “universality” rather than “means testing” for some entitlement programs such as child care.;

abolishing hundreds of millions of foreign aid dollars that never reach the deprived;

Laying off thousands of excess public servants, eliminating and freezing all government hiring and wages;

Selling government assets such as some airplanes and timberlands, privatize the post office, and eliminate/sell worthless crown corporations starting with the extremely left bias, unfair, and unbalanced CBC’

eradicating most corporate welfare;

reducing immigrant/refugee levels by 33%.

repudiating contributing to the global climate change fund.

Nik Nanos Poll

Why don't you report on the numbers CS and stop your petty childish personal attacks.

LIBERALS 35%
CPC 35%

LIBERALS AREN'T QUITE AS DEAD AS YOU THOUGHT ARE THEY?

HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!!

CanadianSense said...

Dear Anon Ha Ha,

I already covered Nik Nanos Poll from 2002 - March 2010 deconstruction.

Did you use a marker on your computer monitor to connect those dots?

Can you explain why the 29 Liberals avoided defeating the CPC on the budget?

For the record think the Liberals are the "best cheerleaders" for the CPC Agenda and M.I. may be a Republican double agent who is helping the Liberals implode.

Janine Krieber, Denis Coderre, Nancy Charest has openly attacked his leadership.

Liberal Party voting record and lack of showing up to defeat this government is public information.

Should we issue an "amber" alert for Michael Ignatieff he has gone missing again.

Some has said he is on another road trip, campus pub crawl.

Any idea if why he won't go back to work in Parliament?

Rumours: Is it true Bob Rae has taken over the party and Ignatieff is looking to return to the U.S. to serve in the US administration?

Campaign Ready:

His views regarding, peacekeeping, torture, Bush Doctrine make his presence uncomfortable in Question Period?

Did Donolo ship him out on cross country tours until this summer?

Donolo made that statement before taking the job.

CanadianSense said...

Dear Caps Locked Anon Ha Ha,

I think your posts funny with the "Doom on You" mantra. Thanks for the chuckles.

I applaud your need to suggest a single Poll means something while ignoring the actions of the Liberals that refuse to get back to work and vote non-confidence to "TEST" it.

I am also thrilled your suggestion I consult Donald Martin for "sage" advice on the anything.

I watch QP, visit Elections Canada Website Political Partry Financial Returns.

Actions speaks volumes. The Liberals are M.I.A.

You can look up how'd they vote in Parliament. They have no stomach to seek a mandate.

Less bark, more bite please. Let me know when the Liberals will show up for work and vote against the CPC Agenda.

Hey Buddy

Ever here of the long game?

Were in this for the long game.

Were not going anywhere, we are still here.

All your BS, spin and regurgitated CPC, garbage mean nothing.

We don't care what BTs say.

When the time comes it will come, then we will squash you like the bugs that you are.

Long game and time

We are patient we bide our time and wait.

I hear your donations are drying up because of Jaffer and Guergis.

Thats too bad boo hoo hoo

I also hear your base is unhappy because of the FISCAL IRRESPONSIBILITY of HARPER

Thats also too bad

Liberals to the rescue again to clean up another CPC mess

Were glad to do it, somebody has to clean up Canada from the stain that is the CPC.

Hey Harper might even end up in the Hague in hand cuffs.

Hit me again with your talking points and spin

I don't care means nothing.

LIBERALS 35%
CPC 35%

WE LEAD YOU IN ONTARIO, QUEBEC, ATLANTIC

I also happen to know that you have been banned from quite a few blog sites.

Guess all that common sense is too much for them.

WE WILL PREVAIL

hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

What sites have you been banned from.

I have a pretty good idea, but I would like you to clarify.

What did you do to get banned?

What did you say to get banned?

How does it feel to be banned?

Is it humiliating to be banned?

Do the bans last forever?

Can you get unbanned?

Have you ever asked to be unbanned?

Do the bans just last for a certain amount of time or are they permanent?

What do you do in the case of a ban?

What are you told when you are banned?

Are they polite to you when they ban you?

Are they rude to you when they ban you?

Did you ever appeal a ban?

Did you ever get back on a site you were banned from?

How does it all work?

Is it embarassing?

Will you ban me because I don't agree with you?

Is a ban a good or bad thing?

Do you care about bans?

Do you not care about bans?

Are bans a positive?

Are bans a negative?

How and why were you banned?

Dear fixed my caps lock long game party supporter.

I enjoyed reading Michael Ignatieff idea for Green Jobs for the youth.

Did you get your shovel in the mail? Best of luck with that ditch digging job.

The Liberal Youth Shovel Corps?


Long Game, that sounds very familiar.

The last Liberal leader played that "long game". How did it work out?

You talk about "long" game and than point to a single Poll now 3x.

Money? Liberals should not talk about money. Bad things happen.

I am not sure you should bring up financial health of political parties.

Several liberals since 2006 have been unable to repay the leadership loans and required a sympathetic court to grant and a two year extension. (ouch!)

Now elections Canada has managed to delay a bankruptcy by not collecting the GST overpayments. Heck they are going to appeal the case they lost.

Rick Mercer pointed out in December 2009 the LPOC are in financial difficulty because they can't afford to actually buy "TV" spots to run their perogie ads.

Youtube and radio buys! (ouch)

I read the Financial Reports at Elections Canada, those Big Fish won't be back in 2011.

No convention, leadership donations. (ouch)

It is funny you think Canadians trust the Liberals to form an alternative. Even Liberals MP's understand don't believe that spin. (29 failed to show up last week)

It is a shame Liberals won't push for Derek Lee's motion to test who is "super duper" and is witholding information.

The Liberals retreated very quickly when parliament resumed on the budget, Taliban motion.

Looks like M.I. is unable to return to Ottawa to ask those "tough" questions.

Why are they afraid of going to the Polls?

What are those Liberals hiding?

I am glad you fixed your caps lock keyboard and dream about Liberals being trusted.

Best of luck with that wonderful story.

Long game.....too funny.

Dion must be laughing at Ignatieff.

CanadianSense said...

Dear Caps lock fixed keyboard Liberal supporter,

I will let the ballot box "ban" your party. I trust Canadians to get it right.

Your party may not have pick the time or issue we go to ballot.

I don't forget to visit often and share your wisdom with sage advice from Peter Donolo and Donal Martin.

I would appreciate an answer.

Troy said...

Typical Liberal reaction (as demonstrated by Anon/Jasper):

When argument is soundly refuted, resort to shrill, repetitive personal attacks/irrelevant changes of subject ("why were you banned?"), along with a steady dose of allegations and half truths...

CanadianSense said...

Troy,

he was entertaining.

anon Ha Ha, anon Ha Ha CAPS lock, anon Ha Ha caps lock fixed Hey buddy, Anon ban ban, Anon why why ban ban, Jasper Caine repeatedly.

His multiple aliases and ultimate registered Google id alias reminds me of those guests who appear on that tv show:

Are your smarter than a 5th grader?

The multiple attempts to engage in talking points was entertaining.

I was greatly impressed by his vast insight into the Liberal Party's strategy and political reality.

1) Ha Ha!
2) Doom on You!
3) We are winning!
4) Long Game
5) Too bad boo hoo hoo
6) Liberals to the rescue again!
7) Ban, Ban here, Ban there, Ban everywhere?
8) Why, why, please tell me!
9) Donald Martin says so!
10) I heard a rumour!


It was entertaining to witness the display of the inner workings of his mind in defence of the Liberal Party.

I hope he does visit on a regular basis with those "zingers"

he had me on the ropes with "were leading" in a single poll in the this region but factor in M.O.E. and his entire point becomes worthless.

I was dissappointed he did not use

"Your momma is so fat" opening...

or

"My dad can kick your dad's" ....
