The Grits lost in their attempt yesterday to smear the prime minister with a false charge of plagiarism—that was from Stéphane Dion.
Bob Rae, former socialist premier of Ontario, has suggested the speech was “more evidence” of Harper's foreign policies being in “lock-step with the right-wing foreign policy of the Bush administration.”
In Bob Rae’s world, any Canadian political party which does not condone its members publicly stomping on the image of the president of our closest ally and largest trading partner, or calling Americans “bastards” would have to be characterized automatically as being in lock-step with Americans. That’s how these people think—and apparently they really do believe this stuff.
The recent rhetoric of the Liberals is characteristic of the increasing desperation. Not surprisingly, they offer less on their platform and more on silly, spurious charges and claims.
