The Tories seem to believe that Bob Rae will become the permanent Liberal leader whenever the Grits get around to officially dropping his “interim” label, which, apparently, they have done in news releases and by-election advertising in Toronto.
This will account for the recently launched “attack” ad, Bob Rae wants to be Prime Minister.
According to cnews.ca, “Rae calls the Tories ‘jerks’ for trying to ‘smear’ him in the way they present his record.” That report quotes Rae as saying, “[c]haracter assassination is a way of life for these [Conservative] guys.”
Of course, it’s never character assassination if it’s true and shown in context. And I’m pretty sure Rae understands that.
Here’s the new ad. Enjoy.
