Iffy's spectacular EPIC FAIL on the GG issue

In an effort to stick it to PM Harper, Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff tried to pressure Harper to renew Governor General Jean's term, which is set to expire in September. However, once again, his partisan efforts have blown up in his face.

Let's take a look at the media coverage on the issue today, shall we? I must say, I can't recall seeing such a uniform opinion from the MSM on ANY issue in recent memory... and none of it's good for the Professor from Harvard.

"Ignatieff whiffs again" - Greg Weston, Ottawa Sun
"Ignatieff politicizing the office of the Governor-General, critics say " - Steven Chase, Globe & Mail
"How not to take a stand" - Adam Radwanski, Globe & Mail
"We are not amused" - Robert Howard, The Hamilton Spectator
"A failed G-G gambit" - National Post
"The Governor General sweepstakes" - Andrew Cohen, Ottawa Citizen
"Michael Ignatieff tries to make Michaëlle Jean a partisan issue" - Globe & Mail Editorial
"Ignatieff abuses Harper's trust" - Don Martin, National Post

UPDATE: And more articles keep rolling in, thanks to eagle eyed readers from their local papers...

    The Governor General, Madam Jean, has been a wonderful representative of Canada and the Queen. I was not originally a fan, but she won me over with her sensitive interpretation of this position. However, there is a term limit on being GG. There are other, worthy, candidates who can do this job with aplomb. PM Harper need not worry about Ignatieff and his opinion. Cheers FernStAlbert
