Place your bets on Liberal "leaks"

I'm taking bets on when the first "knife" will appear... I'm thinking that by Thursday, we'll have the first major damging "leak" from the Liberal campaign.

Any takers? Any other predictions?

    Not a knife in the back, but I'm amused by Dalton McGuinty coming out and NOT fully endorsing Stephane Dion or the carbon tax.

    I think Dalton can already, just one day in to the campaign, smell the stench of defeat on his federal cousins and he doesn't want to get too close and attached.

    The one thing I'm anxiously waiting for - Danny Willimas to finally come out and tell the world what he thinks of the Liberal carbon tax, if it's right for NL, and if the "ABC" voting directive is in the best interests of Newfoundlanders or is just in the best interests of Danny williams.

    During the Lib leadership race, Iggy unveiled his enviro/economy platform in Vancouver,
    August 2006, it was all about raising taxes
    carbon tax, GST and excise tax.
    (Dion is running with Iggy's idea, GST/excise tax increases AFTER getting into government).

    I predict that this campaign kills 2 birds with one stone.
    Dion & Iggy.
    That leaves Rae,
    CPC will save the best for last, Rae does down too.

    Knife? what knife do you speak of? Why damaging? I'd beware of anything that may sprout from the Incumbent Conservative Cabinet. Stockwell Day anyone? look to your own first.

    On CFRA (Ottawa) this afternoon, they had a discussion panel on the election, and the LIEberal representative was already bemoaning the fact that his party had been "hijacked by socialists", primarily Rae and Dosanjh, and he was basically conceding the election already, with a leader that can't make himself understood in English, let alone with the complicated con-job that is the Green Shaft. This may turn out better than I had hoped, and that we might see some Conservative policies for a change.

    Would Jesus pick a party, and attack the others?

    Andrew:

    Jesus attacked the hypocrisy of the pharisees. He criticized the religious leaders of the time very strongly. Enough to make them want to kill him.

    Fair criticism or justified criticism is strongly recommended. Falsely accusing someone of something is being a false witness and is hence a sin. So for example saying that Harper is a disgraceful liar or that he's an extremist who takes his marching orders from Bush would probably be wrong.

    So let me guess this straight you're comparing yourself to Jesus, and the Pharisees to the Liberal Party? Of course Jesus wasn't campaigning on behalf of a competing political party. And if he was, he was campaigning AGAINST the ones in charge, which would make the Pharisees actually the Conservative party in your erroneous analogy.

    Personally I don't believe people have to be so polarized as to blindly follow a party, because not everyone agrees with a party's view 100% all the time (especially since so many people don't even know what their issues are). People should rather constantly strive to keep informed about their issues and communicating to their elected officials (whether they voted for them or not) what the community wants and needs.

    I think tying religion so closely with politics is the opposite of what Jesus intended.
