|West Montreal consists of three ridings: Liberals are upset Larry Smith is running|
I am puzzled lately by Liberal-left decision to repeat the same tactics that have proven to unsuccessful since 2004. We have seen these personal attacks on Rob Ford, Nigel Wright, Julian Fantino and Larry Smith become an obsession by the media and the left.
Rob Ford was not consumed with attacking the policies of his opponents. and giving them a spotlight. He was going to improve customer service at City Hall and reduce the burden on the taxpayer. Rob has been successful because voters had faith in his platform.
It appears Ignatieff is going to ask the NDP or Bloc to support the Conservatives when they return with a new budget. The Liberals did this in September 2009 and spent all of 2010 trying to apologize for having presented little as credible alternative. Is this latest stunt an attempt to keep his job as leader or deflect attention to the fourth quarter fundraising numbers?
