The PM as Victim. Really.

Just spotted this reality check.

Does Stephen Harper think ordinary Canadians are extraordinarily stupid?

Please, Mr. Prime Minister. Give us some credit.

ISSUE:

"Today Stephen Harper accused the other parties of launching 'personal attacks' on him."

REALITY:

"The Conservative Party of Canada has spent millions of dollars attacking the character, integrity and personality of St├ęphane Dion.

They are the most vehement, direct and personal attacks on a Leader of the Opposition that Canadians have ever seen.

This is the first time in Canadian history that such baseless political attack ads have been used outside of an election period.

Never has a governing party spent so much time and money attacking the character of the Leader of the Opposition. 

Never have they been less honest, often maliciously inventing policy positions. 

It is a little late for Mr. Harper to complain about fact-based criticisms now."

Comments

It makes the "Mr. Dithers" campaign of last election seem positively warm and fuzzy.

Harper is a petty, angry man. I swear they must have him on valium for this campaign but someone has got to push some buttons so we can witness his venom before Oct. 14.
