Fighting fire with fire

You may have heard that the NDP has released it’s own “pre-election ad” going after Stephen Harper, though I understand this is so far again an internet-only ad, as was the Conservatives ad that targeted Mulcair earlier this year:

Some critics I’ve seen (mostly media types) complain this is an ad full of half-truths, and that it puts to shame the NDP’s past pronouncements of running a high-road campaign. They’re probably right, but after seeing what ignoring ads did to the Liberal Party under Stephane Dion and Michael Ignatieff, and how effective they were, can anyone really blame them for wanting to fight fire with fire? I don’t.

    wow, a major left wing party actually talking about the economy outside of an election campaign. And talking about pocketbook issues, to boot.

    Progress at last. Muclair’s not such a bad guy after all.

    Both ads have been on TV, though the NDP will not be able to afford playing there’s very long.
