It seems that membership in the Liberal Party can turn seemingly polite people into raving rude ones. First we have my MP - Maria Minna - who stooped so far as to call the PM a "Neanderthal". Now we have a rant on Bob Rae's blog complaining that Stephen Harper is personally sabotaging Mr. Obama's campaign for the US WHite House.
Well Bob. I've really lost all respect for you. I'm not sure I'll be able to stomach going to the TSO anymore. I'll be looking at pulling my subscription.
Anyone in the Chicago consultate could have picked up an errant copy of the NAFTA-gate memo - and I'd venture that there are some interested American's working at the consulate. Likely someone pocketed this of the fax machine and the rest is history.
However, Obama has only himself to blame. First - for being two-faced. Second for having young, eager advisers giddy at the thought of power and all-so willing to run at the mouth. As much as Goolsbee protests, it's clear that the memo was based on a taped conversation - if you read the PDF on the web, you'll see at least one anotation that makes this apparent.
Rae and the lib-lefters are just upset because one of their own has been caught being a blatant demagogue. Then such is the nature of their cause. As H.L. Mencken once wrote:
"One who preaches a doctrine he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots."
The idiots are the Rae's, Minna's and the rest of the nasty lib-left cloud.
