Ignatieff gets up in front of a paying audience and attempts to re-write history.
Ignatieff said the Conservatives have accused the Liberals of “trying to start a culture war’, but suggests it’s the Conservatives that have really done that. The Liberal leader said “let’s be clear: we didn’t end the 25-year consensus on a women’s right to choose. They did.”
Really? I could have sworn that it was Ignatieff and the Liberals that first played the abortion card with their criticism of the maternal health initiative; a program to help save the lives of women and vulnerable children in the developing world with such things as safer drinking water, inoculations, and improved nutrition.
The Liberals brought the subject of abortion up and they were the ones that tried to, and continue to, play divisive political games with abortion including their motion which ended horribly for Ignatieff and the divided Liberals.
But it is the conservatives who started this entire thing. Ya, right. (Springer has some thoughts on this as does Sandy here.)
And I bet Iffy said it all with a straight face. The same way that he said he was in politics to unite and not divide.
BS! Do they teach revisionist history at Harvard?
My sympathies to the suckers that paid for the privilege of having someone lie to them.
More arrogance from Iffy: He is now claiming to be more Canadian than the 99% of us who didn't live elsewhere for 34 years!
Edited for spelling. Thanks M!
