Watching the wheels fall off the big red machine.

Is there anyone out there who is really surprised by this? Dion is again backing away from forcing an election.

When the wheels are falling off the Liberal Party machine, what else is he to do?

The latest attempt to smear the government, this time with the "in and out" fiasco, is blowing up in their faces as their own hypocrisy is exposed, and more of the story makes it's way to the public.

On the policy front the Liberals are a mess. Trying to convince Canadians that having them pay more money for taxes so the Liberals can spend it on big expensive programs of very dubious nature is going to be an very difficult, if not impossible, task. Their past record speaks for itself, and Canadians To make matters worse for the Liberals, the Conservative Government is passing real legislation that that matters to Canadians.

Internally things are not any better for the LPC. The knifes continue to be sharpened, and those doing the sharpening are not even bothering to try to hide it. What does this say to the voting public about the leadership of Dion as these types of stories become even more frequent in the pages of the MSM?

Financially things are not going that well for the LPC, and the same can be said for Dion's repayment of his own personal debt from his leadership campaign. I guess Dion should thank Bob Rae after he successfully took Elections Canada to court in order to get back his "non refundable" deposit paid for the leadership race, as Dion sure could use the money. Come to think of it, so could the LPC.

The wheels are falling off the big red machine, and I predict that it is going to get worse before it gets better, but then again, there is always the environment issue to run on. Good luck with that.

The Liberals are in such bad shape that they might have to force an election now before things get even worse.

Interesting thought. Avoid an even worse case scenario in the future by forcing an election now.

Those poor Liberal strategists must be pulling their hair out over questions like this.

Very good point! They are damned if they do, and damned if they don't.

The cockroaches and rats are racing to the deck.
