Dwight Duncan just told a Globe and Mail reporter that his party can't make up its mind on whether to adopt the NDP tax-the-rich proposal. He can't keep the PC Party of Ontario from stepping all over his talking points in his own home newspaper, the Windsor Star.
Why do the Liberals let this guy Duncan and his Mr. Dithers, business-Liberal, 99-important-priorities leadership ambitions continually embarass them? Here they are trying to con Ontarians into thinking the PC Party skipped the budget lockup, and then all of a sudden Duncan shows up and we learn that the Liberals may cause an election because they can't decide whether they're going to break their promise not to raise taxes for the millionth time.
Let me give you a bit of advice, Dwight: If you want to be Liberal leader, you are just going to have to learn how to treat the people with absolute contempt and how to pretend things are fine when they aren't. That may not have been how you did things in the business world, but this is the Ontario Liberal Party, and in the Ontario Liberal Party, the truth is always going to take second place to whatever it is that's going to keep the conservatives from winning the day.
The Wild Rose is going to win the Alberta election because the PC Party of Alberta were trying to be pretend Liberals as opposed to real, just-watch-me Liberals.
Kind of like you.
