iffy wants Canada to fail

When it comes to such issues as a seat on the Security Council, one would think that politics would be trumped by loyalty to one's Country. Not so for iffy. I am shocked to say this. Kudos to Bob Rae for understanding that we are all Canadians. iffy is not a leader. iffy is still just visiting.

Michael Ignatieff, Monday, commenting on Canada’s bid for a Security Council seat:

“This is a government that for four years has basically ignored the United Nations and now is suddenly showing up saying, 'Hey, put us on the council … Don't mistake me. I know how important it is for Canada to get a seat on the Security Council but Canadians have to ask a tough question: Has this government earned that place? We're not convinced it has.”

Notice how when he is speaking to our MSM he never says how important it is that "we" get a seat, or that "we" have to ask tough questions? Or have "we" earned earned that place?

No, it's "Canada" this, and "this government" that. Iffy is still speaking like he is visiting here; as a carpetbagging dilettante.

Now we have Portugal going around saying that even our Opposition Leader doesn't think we should get a seat on teh Security Council. And this is how a potential PM is supposed to behave. Pffft.

So, Ignatieff doesn't think Canada had earned a seat. He by logic believes that Portugal and Germany have.

The professor should be able to tell us what Portugal AND Germany have done to get on the council and why their contribution has been greater than that of Canad's.

He won't do this of course nor will the Ottawa press gallery ask him to do so.

Well, that sure didn't take long. See, this is what you get when our Opposition Leader Iffy doesn't get to work with a safey net as he did during his little Canadian vacation this summer. Now he has to face reality again.

Same old, same old - Bob Rae having to run cover for his "leader".

Good gravy, bring on an election already.

The leader of the opposition is suppose to oppose the government of the day at home, not to oppose Canada’s interests on the world stage. Iggy is so unprofessional in the way he carries out his duties as opposition leader. I imagine some Liberal MPs privately cringe at his performance.

Does this idiot not realize that should he become PM he would have to live with the fact Canada is not on the Security Council and will not have another chance for how many years. How could he campaign for a seat when it is out there he doesn't think Canada deserves it.
And the elites in TO vote for him.

Iffy ran down Canada before he had his 'calling' at 62 years old (pfff) to fix Canada.

Iffy repeatedly points out that nothing is right in Canada, everything needs to be fixed,
the way it was before he left 38 years ago.

Yah can't teach someone good political judgement.
Iffy should have stuck to being a British talk show host,
because unscripted, he is a total failure as a Canadian leader.

In a new book, by a former cdn UN honcho he blasts the PM and basically says Canada does not deserve a seat on the Security Council.
Does iggy realize that if we fail this time around, it will be 10 years before we get another chance and by that time iggy will be long gone.
