Justin Trudeau to vote against the Liberal non-confidence motion.

If there is any such thing as Liberal logic then Justin Trudeau must support his leader and vote against the Liberal's non-confidence motion later today.

Confused? Well so am I, but consider the following:

Here is what Justin had to say the other day in Kitchener Ontario when he mused that it is Prime Minister Stephen Harper who wants an election, and not his party leader, Michael Ignatieff. “Mr. Harper wants one desperately and he is going to try and bring this House down.”

Got that. PM Harper is the one wanting an election, and not Michael Ignatieff. Forget for a moment that it has been Mr. Ignatieff that has been saying that the Liberals will no longer support the Harper Government, that this government must be replaced, and that he has gone so far as to introduce a motion of non-confidence that if successful later today would trigger an election, flaky Justin is maintaining that it is the PM who wants an election and not Ignatieff.

So following along with this flawed example of Liberal logic in action, Justin has no other choice but to support his leader who he claims does not want an election and support the dictates of Liberal policy to not support the government by giving the PM the election that Justin claims the PM wants, by voting AGAINST the Liberal non-confidence motion coming up for a vote later today. Anything less would be hypocritical n'est-ce pas?

Still confused?

I remain so but the oxymoron of Liberal logic has always made my brain hurt.


Speaking of hypocrites: How is Judy Sgro going to vote later today? For those not following along at home, Judy recently said that “Ninety-nine per cent of us don't want an election.”


Update: As expected the hypocrite duo of Sgro and Trudeau voted for an election by supporting the non-confidence motion.

Nothing confuses me anymore what the liberals and their media say and do.

Confuse is the liberal strategy they have been doing it for years.

Thanks to Layton and caucus sitting on their behinds, he has made sure that Iffy lives another day. I take his abstention as support for the liberals rather than the unemployed or PMSH.
Regardless, iffy will not be PM and Layton will not get a cabinet seat.

It's not that hard. They are blaming Harper for failing to work with the opposition - which is all he has to do in order to avoid an election.

Unless, of course, one of the opposition parties is too poor to afford another election.

Yes Gayle, the PM MUST work with the opposition rather than the opposition even trying to work with the government. Makes sense.

I just hope Kinsella and the other Liberal strategists keep calling the NDP chicken. Jack is going to call the bluff soon and then watch the Liberals trip over each other on the ways to avoid an election.

BTW how does calling the NDP chicken mesh with Ignatieff's respect for opposition parties crap that he has been spewing lately?

Yes, it does - what with it being his responsibility to maintain the confidence of the house and all.

"how does calling the NDP chicken mesh with Ignatieff's respect for opposition parties crap that he has been spewing lately?"

It doesn't.

I might be missing something here...but hasn't he maintained the confidence of the house?

Gayle said...

Yes you are missing something. That would be this:

"Unless, of course, one of the opposition parties is too poor to afford another election."

I guess people that support these parties should step up to the plate then, as opposed to using that as an excuse.

I swear that I saw a TV ad today about making Parliament work from one of those parties that have no money.

I must have been mistaken.
