Micheal Ignatieff is DEMANDING that the Governor Generals term be extended for 5 years.
Hey Mike, (can I call you Mike?) have you ever thought that the GG doesn't want to do another 5 years? Have you asked her?
A guy who can't even get his own party to do what he wants now demands that the PM extend the GG's term.
h/t National Newswatch.
Update: the Liberal spin on this was that Ignatieff was asked for his opinion. Well Whoop-dido; but that does not excuse his arrogance.
Ignatieff was asked for his opinion ( as Stephen Harper was when he was leader of the opposition) and instead of just telling the PM quietly as has been done in the past, Ignatieff decided that his opinion was too important not to share with the common people and decided to play politics with it by running to the press.
That good readers, is arrogance personified!
It is a good thing that Ignatieff doesn't get to see any secrets; he can't keep his yap shut.
Wait a minute!!!!!
