Michael Ignatieff is an American again

- February 5th, 2013

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.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.Too bad he didn’t take Boob Rae with him.

    Who cares? Move on to something else like Hudak making a fool of himself as a Harris wanna be. There are some truths to what he says but like for the last umpteen years the Conservatives have a golden opportunity and they are letting it slip away AGAIN. What this province needs is a Bill Davis type leader not an ultra right wing ideologist. Hell if I want to vote ideologist I would vote NDP. I shudder at that thought just as much as I shudder for the extreme right wing. It is time for the Conservatives to understand this country is a Social Democracy..deal with it! Nothing wrong with getting tough on welfare abuser but as much I am not a fan and I have never paid a union due they are a necessary evil.

    People want toughness but they want fairness, not extremism. Balance, not someone like McClueless, Harris, Rae, Peterson but a Davis type leader. If Davis was young enough to lead the party there would be no looking back. As long as you have extremism ultra right wing you will never win a majority government. Maybe and that is a small maybe a minority but if Wynne and Howarth hit it off and make a deal you are dead in the water again. So stop worrying about past wannabes like Ignatieff and concentrate on the current problems.

    Amazing. That should solidify the future of the Liberal party as untrustworthy. Although Dionne running about scream Arper is a liar was pretty pathetic too.

    Michael Ig-who?

    Bob Rae, take Justin Trudeau with him, bloody space cadet, that has to be Garneau’s campaign slogan, The Astronaut or the Space cadet (I’m thinking of trademarking that)

    Oh my the Iggiot was justifiably nailed to the cross by the Conservatives but with the exception of Sun out pathetic media have turned a blind eye.

    Lisa LaFlamme at CTV said they they filtered out the irrelevant to bring the viewer the real news. Real news, pathetic. Sun gives us the straight goods, no sugar no filters. I’m sick of the MSM treating me like an infant by restricting what I watch. Canadians can make up their own minds, that is what we great unwashed call democracy.

    It is also why the CRTC must give Sun a level playing field. CBC, CTV and Global are just an amorphous mass of the same old. If you blanked out the faces I defy viewers to identify which station they are watching.

    Mr. ExLiberal is certainly sounding like Mr. Liberal. Davis was living at a different time, my friend. They were basically running the entire country, what with their manufacturing base and huge population. We like vanilla, but did the man ever do anything that could be considered as being “controversial”?

    Liberals getting destroyed next election. How fitting CaptainQuebec will be riding that boat when it gets sunk!
