POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN IN TORONTO'S GLOBE AND MAIL
Thank you, Ms. Krieber.
You've spoken the simple truth.
Ignatieff is a disaster.
A disaster by every possible measure.
He has no political skills.
He has no idealism.
He has no charm.
He is simply dull and uninteresting as a speaker.
There is no spark in the man.
He is a dry academic observer, and an academic of not especially outstanding abilities.
And he carries a record of views that are unacceptable to all ethical Canadians.
Dion is a good and intelligent and perceptive man, but he made a serious political mistake with his Green Shift going into an election.
Had the party allowed him to recover in the normal fashion, I think he would be embraced by many Canadians.
Instead, the blind people running the party shoved Ignatieff down our throats.
Ignatieff's record for his few years in Canadian politics reads like something from the old Poliburo.
Parachuted into his riding. Parachuted into the leadership. Uninteresting to the people.
