A day after he took his seat, it would appear that Liberals are already experiencing what it’s like to have Bob Rae in your caucus.
But their worst showing in a national poll in over a year isn’t all Bob’s fault. Dion’s job approval rating now rests at a subterranean 11 percent – a rate even George W. Bush wouldn't covet.
At 26 percent, Liberals are at an all time low in support – lower than the 28 percent that earned John Turner 40 seats in 1980.
Liberals might be starting to regret their strategy of feigning non-confidence and talking tough about Harper while at the exact same time they help him put $14 billion in corporate tax cuts ahead of better transit, quality child care, and environmental laws that are tough on big polluters.
The NDP is the only opposition party to have more MPs today than they elected in 2006 -- proving that Canadians recognize who the real Harper fighters are.
