Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia..

Fact: The Conservatives have been running attack ads against Dion and the Liberals for the past 3 months.

Fact: With the release of their new attack ad in Quebec only, they also open their snazzy new multi-million $ media centre bunker.

Despite all this.. they protest they dont want an election, and then the Prime Minister is quoted yesterday as saying this:

Harper told reporters yesterday he was growing tired of Dion’s threat that he is going to spark an election…”I take the threat very seriously and I hope Mr. Dion appreciates that if that’s the route he wants to go this party will be more than ready,”

Did I miss the press releases at Liberal HQ of Dion constantly threatening to spark an election?

Talk about attempted misdirection.

    Harper probably believes he can win an election, but that would not necessarily drive him to trigger one. Avoiding the unnecessary battle in this case is simply a matter of helping the opposition parties remember that for them it is an unwinnable battle.

  • Yeah I don’t know what Harper is trying with this stunt. But then again he has shown contempt for Canadian intelligence before.

    Oh – I do not think the media are buying this “the liberals want an election” thing one bit. I have yet to read one article on it that was not dripping with irony. Every talk show has the pundits discussing how Harper will orchestrate the fall of his government.

    The BT’s I have seen believing it will be the liberals are the same ones who would believe the sky is falling if Harper told them it was.

  • I’m still not sure if/when an election comes down, who the public will be blaming for it. I mean, the Conservatives are obviously trying to spin it saying they’re only doing all this stuff in preparation for the evil Liberals. I wouldn’t be surprised if they run an ad with Dion’s comments at the leadership convention saying, “we’re coming for you, Harper” (or something to that effect).

    But then again, can the Canadian public actually believe him? I mean, it’s obvious to any rational observer that Harper is the one keen on an election, especially if he goes in with a big lead in the polls. It’s hard to believe the public would fall for his lies on this, but then again, he has done pretty good at controlling the media.

  • “Does voting against the government on an issue of confidence count as such a signal?”

    Such as?

    “Did I miss the press releases at Liberal HQ of Dion constantly threatening to spark an election?

    Are you new Scott? Of course there were no “threats” – Harper is a lair. Always has been always will be. But he’s good at it. He’s even got many of his fan-boys in the BT convinced a budget with more spending than the Liberals is a good thing and that flip-flopping on income trusts was something that has to be done to secure the majority. I mean, once they got that majority, then look out, they’ll do all that stuff the like. Until then they gotta keep it under wraps and well hide the real agenda eh?

    Frankly I think they are all liars, but Harper is the most egregious with the most no-minded true-believing idoits lapping them up…
