We all remember the Conservative attack ads claiming that Michael Ignatieff was just visiting Canada, that he didn’t come back for you.
Of course we now know that Ignatieff did indeed go back to Harvard but now the former leader of Canada’s natural governing party is back to being called an American.
Ignatieff signed on to a statement on marriage put out by the Institute for American Values. He is listed as one of 74 American leaders.
Ignatieff really does fancy himself an American which I have no problem with other than the Liberal hypocrisy of hating all things American and electing a leader wedded to the Republic.
I really do question whether Ignatieff has voted in the United States and if he did so before coming back to Canada. In April 2011 I asked about this very subject and was told he had never voted outside of Canada. He later backtracked on that statement after I produced portions of a book he wrote that detailed his voting in Britain.
Either way, Ignatieff once again sees himself as an American.
